Dan Meyer Update, Jared Lansfords Debut and more

Last night Dan Meyer pitched a fine game, as the Rivercats beat the Tuscon Sidewinders 8-5.

Meyer pitched 6 solid, with 1 earned run, 4 hits, 3 walks, and a very encouraging 7 K's. If it's true that he'll never regain the velocity he had in Atlanta, he must learn to be a different pitcher. His upside may turn out to be a good fourth starter. I'll take that. His ERA on the year is now 3.73 over 31 innings with a 16/9 K/BB ratio and a 1.37 WHIP.

Have to go now actually, i'll update more as soon as i can.

Well, back now. More players of note:

Jason Windsor looks to be fully recovered from last years "tired arm" and biceps strain (or whatever it was. In 6 starts and 33 innings, Windsor sports a 2.97 ERA with a 35/10 K/BB ratio and a 1.11 WHIP.

Kevin Melillo is having a power outage. He just hit his first home run of the year the other day. Oddly enough, he's hitting for average. .308/.373/.393/.765 is his line, with 1 homer and 14 rbi's. His BB/K ratio is a mediocre 10/23. Quite odd.

Travis Buck is off to a wonderful start. As advertised, he is spraying doubles all over the place. .324/.385/.590/.976 with 3 homers, 3 triples, and 13 doubles (!!). He's scored 21 runs, and has a solid 13/17 BB/K ratio. Hopefully these doubles (an unbelievably amount) will turn into homers.

Jared Lansford made his debut on Monday, and it was excellent. He's slated to start today if i'm not mistaken. Lansford pitched 5 innings of 2 hit, no run ball. He K'ed 5 and BB'ed 2. GO JL!!!!

Thomas Italiano also continues to be as advertised. His ERA in 18 innings (4 starts) is 3.5. He's give up 18 hits, and has a 23/9 K/BB ratio.
