Trent Howard is shining as a reliever in 2013

Trent Howard is shining as a reliever in 2013

Trent Howard's stats strictly as a RELIEVER so far this season.
13 GMS / 29.0 IP

ERA - 0.62 | FIP - 2.34 | WHIP - 1.07 | BAA - .215 | BABIP - .286 |

(SO/9 - 9.6) | ( H/9 - 7.2) | (BB/9 - 2.5) | (HR/9 - 0.3)

Looks like making him a reliever was a good move. He hasn't done bad as a starter this year, but is definitely working well from the bullpen.

Point to you sir!

Your right, to point out his success in the pen in Frederick this year. Just because he wasn't a top 3 choice is no reason to dismiss this guy as a legit contributor some day either. It may take 2-3 years before he's given a real shot at the big leagues but lefties do not grow on trees and let's face it you simply cannot have enough arms regardless of role.

He may profile out as a classic reliever. A pitcher that can get outs the first time through a batting order, but not the second.

We will need relievers too in 2015. A solid season at AA and he is on track to help the big club.
