But if there was, one of the games best would be making his debut tomorrow, S.F. Giants Super Prospect Tim Lincecum. Lincecum has simply dominated the Pacific Coast League, to the tune of a 0.29 ERA and 0.74 WHIP. In 31 innings, he has struck out 46 and walked 11. The Pacific Coast League is considered to be a hitters league as well, making those numbers even more outstanding. Interestingly enough, there is another pitcher making PCL hitters look nearly as foolish as Lincecum, and his name is Yovanni Gallardo. The Brewers prospect is the current owner of a 2.70 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP in 30 innings. He’s also struck out 42 and walked just 8. Despite the fact the Brewers pitching staff is pitching very well right now, (5th in MLB with a 3.49 ERA) it will be tough to leave Gallardo in Nashville for the entire season.
ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball features Lincecum’s start tomorrow night, and you’ll also get some timeless commentary from Joe Morgan.
