There’s a bit of a wider gap between #1 and #10- unlike wins. But like wins, only one pitcher appears twice- Rob Delaney.
Many of these guys have pitched in the major leagues- Chris Perez, Delaney, Josh Edgin, Josh Judy, and David Carpenter (who played in the Valley League as a catcher, actually).
Still active: Edgin, Judy (pitched in Mexico), Matt Hockenberry (in the Phillies’ system- here’s to hoping he gets a shot in Philly in 2017!)
