Trey Ball, SP, Greenville Drive - 2 G, 10.0 IP, 0-0, 0.90 ERA, 6 H, 5 R, 1 ER, 2 BB/11 K, 0.80 WHIP, 9.90 K/9, 4.33 G/F, .154 BAA, .400 OPSA
July seems to agree with Trey Ball thus far, as the young left-hander turned in a pair of his finest performances this season. Ball worked five innings of one-hit, shutout ball against Asheville (COL) July 1, striking out three and walking none while not factoring in the decision. In his second start of the period, July 6 at Augusta (SFG) a leaky defense let Ball down, allowing five runs but only one earned on five hits and two walks, highlighted by an impressive eight strikeouts in five innings of work. He is currently the seventeenth-ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.
Season Line: 13 G, 53.1 IP, 1-7, 6.08 ERA, 77 H, 36 ER, 19 BB/40 K, .333 BAA
