Greeneville Astros: Dan Sarisky

Hey! With Dan Sarisky, we're done with the Greeneville Astros. I realized how many more players we had to go, and how little time there is between now and Spring Training, and it was time to step it up...

Hmm. I'm not so sure what to think about Mr. Sarisky. He did record five saves for Greeneville, and it's his first season in professional baseball, so that should absolutely be taken into account. But the .325 BAA, combined with the low strikeout rate, is something of a concern. In his last ten games, Sarisky had three outings in which he didn't allow an earned run. Only one of those was a 3+ out appearance. He does have a right-side-up groundout/flyout ratio, and his WHIP goes in the right direction as the situation becomes more precarious. Let's see what 2010 brings, when he can focus on baseball, and not being in a military academy.
