Minor League Record Book: ERA in a Season

This is our last seasonal pitching category for the minor leagues, but we still have career records!

Here are the best ERAs in a season since the 2006 draft, with a 120-inning requirement…

1 Brad Mills Harrisonburg ’05 2008 1.95
2 Elih Villanueva Luray ’07 2010 2.26
3 Rowdy Hardy Staunton ’04 2007 2.48

A whopping three pitchers landed on the list after superlative 2014 seasons- Cooney, Hill, and Rucinski. Hill and Rucinski also made their major league debuts in ’14!

Mills, Villanueva, and Thornburg have also pitched in the majors. Only Hardy, Bowman and McCurry are no longer in affiliated ball.
