Leftover Ronald Uviedo Videos

I’ve seen Ronald Uviedo pitch live twice this year, and I was holding on to the videos in anticipation of seeing him again, or in the event that he would be promoted to AAA.  With today’s trade of Uviedo to the Toronto Blue Jays for Dana Eveland, I figured it’s now or never with the videos.

There are two innings here.  The first inning was on April 13th against Richmond, in Altoona.  Uviedo faced four batters, striking out the first batter, walking the second, striking out the third, then getting a ground out to Jordy Mercer at third base for the final out of the inning.  Unfortunately I didn’t get the video of Uviedo’s next inning that night, when he struck out the side.  It was the 11th inning, and my camera battery died.

The next inning I have was on May 13th against Richmond, this time in Richmond.  Uviedo got a ground out to third base, walked the second batter, then struck out the next two batters to end the inning.  If you’re keeping track at home, Uviedo’s stat line in the games I’ve seen this year is as follows:

3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K

Last year I got video of Uviedo in four different games, all in relief.  Uviedo combined for no runs on one hit in four innings, with no walks and four strikeouts.  That means that in the last six games I’ve seen him pitch in, he’s combined for seven innings, one hit, no runs, two walks, and 11 strikeouts.  There should be no question as to why I’m upset the Pirates traded Uviedo.  Now, on to the videos…
