Down on the Farm

I've decided to do a quick statistical analysis of the Padres minor league pitchers. Tonight, I'll start with Triple-A Portland.

Portland Pitching
Justin Germano36.03799.252.254.11
Chris Oxspring36.031107.752.503.10
Marty McLeary35.334178.674.332.00
Clay Hensley19.01667.582.842.67
Angel Tovar16.31095.524.971.11
Joe Dawely15.717159.758.601.13
Brad Baker15.717129.756.881.42
Brandon Emanuel14.322613.853.783.67
Danny Patterson11.0453.274.090.80
Michael Bumstead10.0746.303.601.75
Roger Deago8.7555.175.171.00
RD Spiehs6.3537.144.291.67

Justin Germano has been absolutely fantastic. A K to BB ratio of over two is considered good and your top-tier talent guys should be striking out three times as many as they walk. Four to one is very, very good and he's doing it while punching out more than a batter per inning. If that's not enough to make you happy today, he's only 22.

Chris Oxspring and Clay Hensley are both showing very good control posting sub-3.00 BB/9. They've been so stingy with the free passes that bother have K:BB ratios over 2.50 despite pedestrian K/9 rates.

Marty McLeary has been solid. He's striking out nearly one per inning and his BB/9 rate is low enough to maintain a 2.00 K/BB.

Joe Dawley and Brad Baker are both striking out better than a batter per inning, but are also walking everybody. Still, power ratios for minor leaguers are usually more indicative of future success than control numbers.

Brandon Emanuel has an awe-inspiring 13.85 K/9 rate, but has only thrown 14.3 innings this season. It's quite a feat, though.

None of the rest are performing well at all. Overall, not bad, though. I'll be sure to check back when there's actually some real data to look at.

For pitchers you should also add their HR rate (HR per 9 IP)

Good call. I'll start with Hi-A and include it in future AAA/AA notes.
