Jonathon Pettibone 2013 Outlook
Posted 22 April 2013 - 09:32 PM
2.6 BB/9, 6.4 K/9, 1.9 G/F ratio. Total 3.44 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.
That's nearly identical to Tim Hudson's career:
2.7 BB/9, 6.0 K/9, 2.2 G/F ratio. Total 3.43 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.
Not saying that putting up those numbers in the minors is anywhere near as impressive as Hudson putting them up in the majors, but it seems like Pettibone has a shot to stick. He was probably better than Lannan all along, right?

Pettipone has had solid, not spectacular numbers through the minors, but didnt impress in spring training and had a 9 era in AAA so far, so they would probably like him to spend more time there.
as far as last night, Alvarez hit a line drive homer, Mayberry saved him with a diving catch in the second, a questionable called third strike on McCutcheon helped him as well, but he showed pretty good command of thre pitches, but probably benefitted from the Pirates not having a book on him.
by the way, former phils #1 pick Jesse Biddle struck out 16 in 7 innings for AA Reading last night.
