Morning Report: Pitching Leaders Throughout the Farm System
John Dreker

Yesterday's Morning Report was on the hitting leaders around the system for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Naturally, that would make today the pitching leaders in the system. Since there are fewer categories to look at, I'll expand this from the top three (like yesterday) to the top five in the system. For ERA, WHIP and walks per nine innings, I used 75 innings minimum for starters. I also included ERA and WHIP for relievers at the bottom using 20 appearances minimum. I left off Seth McGarry, who would have been the ERA and WHIP leader for relievers, because he was included in the popular Joaquin Benoit deal.

Innings Pitched

1. Drew Hutchison - 143.1

2. Alex McRae - 133.2

3. Cam Vieaux - 129.1

4t. Austin Coley - 128.2

4t. Pedro Vasquez- 128.2


1. Tyler Glasnow - 1.79

John Dreker

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
