Top 3 Pitchers
74.2 IP / 3.13 ERA / 2.67 FIP
It was no surprise Woodruff got Southern League Player of the Month along with being named Brewers minor league pitcher of the month and FanGraphs’ Fringe Five. It’s easy to think he’d cool down in August like any player after a dominant month, but he had another solid outing going 6 IP, 6 Hs, 1 ER, and 4 Ks to get the W. It’s the lowest Ks in a game he’s had since mid-June as ever since then he had had at least 6 in a game.
39 IP / 3.00 ERA / 3.25 FIP
Jungmann got his first W with the Shuckers as his ERA is nearly under 3.00. The Shuck Dynasty noted strong reliever Stephen Kohlschleen helped him out as he had the bases loaded with one out and he struck out the next two, so Jungmann could get the W and have no ERs. His K/9 and BB/9 seem to be balancing back in the right position as they were even with the Brewers, opposite with high walks (10.19 BB/9) in AAA, but now solid with the Shuckers.

39.2 IP / 4.08 ERA / 3.32 FIP (Rangers AA)
Ortiz was part of the Texas Rangers deal for Jonathan Lucroy with the Milwaukee Brewers. For how strong the farm system is, MLB Pipeline ranks him all the way up at #5 which certainly says something. At the start of the season Baseball America said his fastball is usually 92-95, but could get up to 97 and has a “putaway slider.” Just 20 years old, he pitched 3 innings for the Shuckers with 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, and 3 Ks. While a 4.08 ERA doesn’t sound impressive, breaking down the numbers in 39.2 IP, 7.71 K/9, 1.59 BB/9, and 3.32 FIP, he seems to be doing just fine.
