Leake put in a solid performance in his first start of the season picking up the win where he went seven innings giving up two runs off of five hits to go along with three walks and four strikeouts.
The three walks was a little high for Leake who posted a 1.79 BB/9 last year and has a career 2.14 BB/9, but nevertheless we can chalk that up to being first game jitters. Expect another year of consistent outings from Leake.
Seattle’s lineup hasn’t had too much pop only slugging .397% to go with 15 extra-base hits in their first six games. They have been hitting well in terms of average posting a .271 BA.
Also, it’s positive to see they have been doing well not striking out ranking 27th in the league with 43 strikeouts.
Berrios pitched a gem in his first start of the season pitching nine shutout innings giving up three hits to go with one walk and six strikeouts. Well done for the young 24 year old pitcher who looks to improve on his 3.89 ERA and 3.84 FIP from last year.
If you have yet to catch the Jose Berrios train, nows the time to jump aboard. He is a well-balanced pitcher who has swing-and-miss stuff (8.20 K/9) while he also improved his command last year posting a 2.97 BB/9. When he polishes up his changeup he will be a formidable foe to any lineup.
Minnesota’s lineup has come out with a bang jacking 12 home runs in their first six games to go along with a .472 SLG%. They’ve also racked up 13 doubles and 27 RBI. They could do a little better with the plate discipline owning a BB/K ratio of 19:59.
