While the Biloxi Shuckers were just short of making the playoffs, the last week ends with a highlight of another strong arm in the Milwaukee Brewers farm system.
In the early part of the MiLB season, RtB writer Steven Jewell did a spotlight on RHP Jon Perrin. At that point he’d had a 2.62 ERA and on the edge of being called up to the next level. After 36 IP, he was called up to the High-A Manatees where he’d be one of the few highlights in the last season for the team in Viera, Florida after 22 seasons with 12 being with the Milwaukee Brewers organization.
While the Manatees didn’t have much to watch for Perrin was one of the few. In 110.2 IP, he had a 2.60 ERA and 2.65 FIP. As writer Jewell also pointed out, he was known for his very low BB ratio as the BB/9 barely went over .90 in 2015 with the Low-A Timber Rattlers.
While the numbers are staggering, he also had an interesting story about getting into Harvard Law School back in mid-June. He’d been quoted before by FanGraphs saying if he got into Harvard, he’d be done pitching for the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Unfortunately, for Perrin he wasn’t accepted into the Law School, but fortunately for Milwaukee Brewers fans he remains a part of the organization as of now.

Looking back at how he did with the Biloxi Shuckers in the only start of the season, he was a bit rusty. In 3.1 IP, he gave up 8 Hs, 9 ERs, 3 BBs, and 2 Ks. It was by far his worst start of the season as back in late-June, 5 ERs was the most he gave up with the Manatees.
But, at the very least, the Chris Harris, the Biloxi Shuckers broadcaster, thinks Perrin will most likely be a part of a heavy loaded pitching rotation come the 2017 season:
This past week the Biloxi Shuckers went 5-4 as the Mississippi Braves (ATL) took the 2nd half spot in the playoff race. In the Southern League South, the Braves along with the First Half champs, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (CIN) will make the trip to the playoffs. So, let’s take a look at the top 3 pitchers/hitters for the last week of the 2016 Southern League season for the Biloxi Shuckers.
