56 IP / 2.77 ERA / 2.89 FIP
In two starts, Jungmann went 13 IP, 3 ER, 3 BBs, and 14 Ks. No Ws at all for Jungmann even though in his first start he went 6 IP with 1 BB and 8 Ks. His ERA of 2.77 matches up right with his ERA in AA in 2014 in the same amount of IP of 52. It was the lowest ERA he’s had in his career. The FIP of 2.89 is also at its lowest, so everything seems to continue to go in the right direction for Jungmann with the Shuckers as his curve and change pitches are finding the right spots.
43 IP / 2.30 ERA / 2.20 FIP
It’s odd to point out a relief pitcher’s blown save as a highlight, but since it’s been so long since Kohlscheen has made any sort of mistake, it’s worth a note. As The Shuck Dynasty points out, you’d have to go back all the way to May 21st to find his last blown save. It’s also his first ER since July 10th. Looking back in Kohlscheen’s MiLB history, he seems to be having a similar season as when he was with the Mariners organization as he went 66.2 IP, 11.48 K/9, 2.30 ERA, and 2.70 FIP. But, the main difference is being in the closer role with 18 saves and adding a K/9 at 12.35 isn’t so bad either.
74.0 IP / 3.16 ERA / 2.84 (Total AA numbers / FIP only based on IP with Shuckers)
Ortiz is still taking his time to battle back from a groin strain, but he’s been pretty impressive nonetheless. This past Thursday he went 3.2 IP, 5 Hs, 2 BBs, and 3 Ks to help get the Shuckers one of their few wins this last week. Before the season FanGraphs talked about his fastball, slider, and changeup being the above average pitches to make him a mid-rotation starter in the future.
