Bullock started out with the GCL, where he threw 6IP, and was brought up to Greeneville on July 30. We're talking about an incredibly small sample size, so when a reliever gets 13 innings at one level, and then gives up 2ER in 0.2IP - his first game in Greeneville, it's going to screw some things up. So luckily, since he played 10 games for Greeneville, we can see the game-by-game breakdown. In his 10 Greeneville games, Bullock gave up earned runs in two of them, he had 3+ out appearances in seven of the ten, and didn't give up an earned run in any of them (because, well, if you give up earned runs as a reliever, you're not going to be sticking around). He had two perfect outings in those ten games, so the walks are obviously going to need to come down.

Bullock came out of WF with the reports of having a great pick off move. That pick off move because balks in the Appy League.

Of course when folks brag on your pick off move, it also means you have guys on first a fair amount.
