Minor League Update: Games of May 23

by Kevin Goldstein

Danny Hultzen, LHP, Mariners (Double-A Jackson): 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 12 K.

It's been a strange, but ultimately very good debut for Hultzen. The most polished pitcher in the 2011 draft, Hultzen has had some strange bouts of control issues, but he's yet to really be hittable, as after nine starts for the Generals, he has a 1.78 ERA, 56 strikeouts in 50.2 innings and the Southern League is hitting .146 against him. He might not have the upside of other arms from last year's first round, but he's still on pace to be the first to make an impact in the big leagues.

Others Of Note:
