There is one player in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization that gets people just excited and that is pitcher Trevor Bauer. After a lights out start to the season in Double-A Mobile, he was promoted to Reno. The success, although not perfect, has continued.
On Saturday, he made his fourth start for the Aces and ended up with a no decision. However, in what was his worst outing according to his ERA, he gave up three runs in six innings, striking out seven and walking two.
The walks improved from his previous two starts. In his previous two, he walked a total of nine batters.
However, hitters are not having much success, as they are batting a combined .169 against Bauer in Triple-A.
He is now 2-0 with a 2.52 ERA at Reno, with 31 strikeouts and 12 walks in 25 innings.
If that success continues, it will be tough thing to keep him from the major leagues this season.
