There are quite a few things to note here. Donovan's last four appearances of the season were games in which he started and, as you can see from the starter/reliever splits, he fared much better pitching out of the rotation. In his start against Staten Island on August 29, he struck out eight batters in 4IP - so that's nice. And despite an upside-down groundout/flyout ratio, Donovan didn't give up a homer all season long. Also, if you take out one of his appearances - on July 22 against Auburn in which he allowed three earned runs without recording an out - his ERA drops below 3.00. So get those walks under control, young Robby, and we'll see you in Lexington.
