After yet another dominating start by Chad Kuhl (New Market 2012) Wednesday night, it’s time to take a look at his 2016 season thus far.
The former Rebel has started 6 games for Triple-A Indianapolis, Pittsburgh’s International League affiliate. Overall, he’s 2-0, 1.10, while allowing 21 hits, 8 walks, and striking out 24 in 32 2/3 innings. Including his 6 shutout innings last night, he’s avoided allowing even one run in half of his starts. His WHIP is a minuscule 0.887, his BB/9 is 2.2, and his K/9 is 6.7.
Chad is in a super high powered rotation just one step away from the majors; he shares starting duties with top prospects Tyler Glasnow, Jameson Taillon, Steven Brault, and Wilfredo Boscan. All of them have ERAs 2.70 or lower. It will be fascinating to see what Pittsburgh will do with all of these pitchers throughout 2016!
Keep it up, Chad!
