We took a look at the numerous Pittsburgh Pirates playing this off season around the world. (In the last post, we stated not much salt is put in any of the numbers due to very small sample size hence we decided to see if some of the struggles during the season were being repeated–for example, Cedeno still doesn’t have a walk in 82 at-bats.)
Now for some good news! We have talked a great deal about the success of Quincy Latimore in Australia. Now for some nice pitching performances this winter.
Jose Ascanio threw an inning on December 5. We consider that a win.
Michael Dubee has held opponents to a .182 average in his last 10 innings pitched. For the season Dubee has appeared in 16 games, has 16 strikeouts and allowed opponents to hit just .159
Sean Gallagher made five starts this winter. He threw 29 innings, allowed 28 hits and struckout 25 batters. He also allowed 17 walks and four bombs.
Charlie Morton had serious success and it’s been well documented. Three starts. 14 strikeouts. Two walks.
Jean Machi continues to do his thing, which is put up stats. Machi has 19K in 20 innings pitched with just four walks issued. Six of seven in save opportunities.
