Murillo Gouvea had a rougher time of it in Bristol, the White Sox' Appalachian League affiliate, and was traded for future considerations (who I hear has a wicked slider), where he performed much better for Greeneville. A couple of things stand out as far as the splits go, and that's how much he was rocked by LHBs, and dominated RHBs. And the home/away splits. If you're a right-handed batter at home, and Murillo Gouvea is on the mound, just go sit down. We'll find out next season if Gouvea just needed a change of scenery, or if the White Sox just gave up on him, or what the story is...
