2010 Overview (Greeneville + Tri-City)


What happened?

Streilein was drafted out of Villanova in the 37th Round of this summer's draft, and was sent to Greeneville, where he threw 32 of his 33IP. On August 31, Streilein was sent up to Tri-City with Telvin Nash, Garrett Bullock and Ryan Cole to assist with the playoff push, where he threw 1IP against Brooklyn in the pennant-clincher on September 5.

Thanks to MiLB's posting only the splits of the team the player is currently with, we get to see the splits from that one inning - not the first 32. So we'll have to be creative, and realize our limitations on this one.

What went right?

Strikeouts. Streilein got 9.8 K/9IP, with 36K in 33IP.

Walks. Dude only walked nine batters all season (eight at Greeneville), and four of those walks were intentional.

What went wrong?

Hits! Streilein allowed 11H/9IP in Greeneville, and gave up 26 runs (Eight of which were unearned) on 39 hits. This doesn't take into account runners inherited by the next reliever, however.

We'll leave it up to Appy Astros to fill us in on Streilein's year:
The big righty appeared in 20 games covering 32 IP and was second on the team with 5 saves. He too had a large number of his walks accounted for with intentional passes (4 out of 8). Streilein was the closer at the end of the season and earned a brief appearance in Tri Cities. At 22 next season, I could see Streilein in Tri-City working the late innings out of the pen.
