D.J. Mitchell (P, Empire State AAA):
While Adam Warren has gotten better as the season has gone on, Mitchell seems to be regressing. He went 1-2 over five starts in June, with a 7.16 ERA. Opposing hitters were knocking him for an absurd .319 average and he gave up four homers, which is how many he gave up in April and May combined.
Nik Turley (P, Tampa A+):
Turley was a favorite of ours in April, when he went 2-0 with a 2.01 ERA in five starts, threw 31.1 innings and struck out 32 while walking just ten. In June, he went 1-1 in four games (three starts) where he managed just thirteen innings of work. He had a 5.54 ERA, struck out sixteen and walked ten.
Bryan Mitchell (P, Charleston A):
Mitchell looked fantastic over April and May, but appeared to forget how to pitch in June. He went 1-4 over five games (four starts) with a 10.38 ERA. He was hit for a .380 average over that time, after holding hitters to a .154 and .200 averages in April and May respectively.…
