/slow-whistling. This was rough. It was probably a good idea to move him into a relief role, if only for the three-game starting stint from July 7-18, in which Hyatt gave up 17 ER in 8.1IP. There's a lot to take in here, such as the tendency to give up fly balls (but only two homers), and the high walk-rate, and the high batting average against. But we're still judging a pitcher by 19.1IP, and that just ain't fair.
Citizen Steve, what say you on BJ Hyatt?
Throws hard, but without much command. Very raw, and saw limited action due to overuse in college. I expect we'll get a better picture of him next year.
