Pitcher Report Cards
|Enyel De Los Santos||Inc||B-||Inc|
There wasn’t a whole lot that went well on the pitching side of things this month (5.63 team ERA), and Juan Nicasio was the lone pitcher to throw 5 or more innings and have an ERA under 4.00. Edubray Ramos only recorded 10 outs, but I was desperate for a little more silver lining in this column. That’s basically it for this section.
Who wasn’t bad? Anyone who threw any sizable amount of innings had a period of immense struggle last month. Walks, homers, everything you don’t want your pitchers to do: We saw more of it. A near-total dud of a month.
Jerad Eickhoff allowed 8 homers in 10 innings and got sent to the Injured List ... Adam Morgan returned from the IL looking every bit as rusty as a four-week layoff could make you ... Nothing seemed to work for the options at the front end of the bullpen and back end of the rotation, no matter who got plugged in.
Hitter Report Cards
Scott Kingery has arguably been the team MVP, even with a month missed due to injury ... Jay Bruce and Brad Miller provided some fresh faces and some spark for an offense that too often seems to be on the verge of sputtering out ... Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins are steady hands in the middle (or, sometimes, top) of the lineup, which is obviously nice to see.
Jean Segura’s walk-off against the Mets was a lone bright spot in an otherwise forgettable trudge of a month, both on the field and as talk radio’s new lightning rod ... Cesar Hernandez started the month off continuing his late-May slump, but at least rebounded nicely toward the end.
The bench continues to be something of a disaster, and now it’s apparently Sean Rodriguez and Roman Quinn’s turns to bear the onerous distinction of carrying that torch this month.
