Top 3 Pitchers
113.1 IP / 3.01 ERA / 2.40 FIP
Woodruff was lights out to end the year and while some were concerned with what the Milwaukee Brewers had for pitching in the farm system this year, he certainly showed to be a positive note. For all pitchers it’s good to end on a good note and he did just that in two starts going 14 IP, 6 Hs, 1 ER, 3 BBs, and 19 Ks combining them to get the Ws. He’ll likely be starting with the Shuckers again next year and hopefully be called up to AAA if the numbers are just as impressive.
45.1 IP / 3.97 ERA / 3.81 FIP
Lopez seemed to have an opposite 2016 season compared to last year, but at the very least found some stability with the Shuckers. In two starts this past week he went 11 IP, 13 Hs, 4 ERs, 3 BBs, and 13 Ks. It’ll be interesting where Lopez is placed next year, but no matter what it may be a defining year for what direction his career may be heading.
81.2 IP / 3.42 ERA / 2.46 FIP
The Shuck Dynasty noted his 49th appearance this past Sunday was team leading. Archer and Stephen Kohlscheen were big parts of the bullpen throughout the 2016 season and like most relievers, don’t get enough credit. With a career best in both K/9 and K/BB and somehow having the same ERA (3.42) the last 3 seasons (Weird, right?) a call-up to AAA seems more than likely.
