Congratulations to Anatanaer Batista, who recently was named the SoxProspects.com pitcher of the week for July 13-19.
“Batista made two appearances out of the Spinners bullpen last week, working 7 shutout innings of 2 hit ball, striking out seven and walking none, and earning a win. Batista pitched 3 innings against Aberdeen (Orioles) July 15, allowing 1 hit and striking out 3 and getting the victory. Four days later he went 4 innings against Williamsport (Phillies), again allowing only a single hit and striking out four. After a bumpy beginning to his 2009 campaign, Batista has settled into a groove in July, allowing 1 earned run of five hits (0.87 ERA, .139 BAA) in 10.1 innings pitched over 5 appearances, striking out 11 and walking none, and is 2-0. On the season he is 2-0 2.25 ERA in 16 innings pitched over 8 appearances, all in relief, allowing 4 earned runs on 11 hits, while striking out 15 and walking three.” (SoxProspects)
Once again, congratulations Anatanaer, we wish you continued success this season!
