The promising lefty continues to increase stock in 2017 earning his first Double-A W with a 3-0 victory over Bowie. Borucki struck out 7, walked none, and allowed 6 hits over 7 shutout innings. He allowed just one extra base hit and earned a 77 game score for his efforts.


Ryan threw 64-of-93 pitches for strikes and induced an even amount of GO and AO with 6 each. The Blue Jays newest rising star now owns a sparkling 0.43 ERA in 3 starts with New Hampshire.


Last 10– 4-4, 1.70 ERA. What needs to be said? Borucki lowered his ERA from 4.04 to 3.58 across his final 7 starts with the Dunedin Blue Jays.


Jon Harris


Harris continued his up and down season with a so-so start on August 4th. The Cats fell to Richmond 6-5 and Jon Harris got a no decision, leaving the game with a 5-3 lead. Jonathan allowed 4 runs (3 ER) on 8 hits over 5.0 IP for a 44 game score. Harris walked one and struck out 4 throwing 51-of-87 pitches for strikes.


The 23-yr-old former 1st rounder did a good job of keeping the ball on the ground and in the yard, inducing 6 ground ball outs and 2 fly ball outs. He allowed 2 doubles, both to Hunter Cole.


The righty cruised through the first 4 innings, retiring the first 7 batter before allowing a single to Daniel Carbonell with one out in the 3rd. He allowed a two out double in the 4th but the next batter grounded out to end the inning.


Seven batters came to the plate in the 5th and 3 runs crossed the plate. Harris came out to start the 6th but was pulled after allowing a single and a double.


Last 10– 3-5, 4.96 ERA. Harris leads the Fisher Cats with 113.2 innings pitched but has only managed to pitch 5.0, 4.2, and 5.0 over his last 3 starts.


Thomas Pannone


In his Fisher Cats debut, Pannone had his worse start of 2017. The lefty took the loss (6-2) as the Fisher Cats were shut out by Richmond on August 6th.


Thomas Pannone allowed 5 runs on 6 hits over 4.1 in the first game of a doubleheader. After allowing 5 HR in 110 innings, Pannone allowed a bomb in the 1st inning and 4th inning. Jerry Sands owned Pannone in this one, with a double and homer.


Pannone threw 96 pitches, 62 for strikes. He walked 3 and struck out 6 while posting a 3-3 GO-AO.


Last 10– 4-1, 3.20 ERA. A rough debut resulted in his ERA jumping to 3.01 from 2.62. He has 61 K in his last 56.1 IP.


Sean Reid-Foley


In the 2nd game of the doubleheader, SRF earned his 8th win, edging the Flying Squirrels 5-3. Reid-Foley got in trouble early, allowing a Jerry Sands homer in the first. He would get into trouble again in the 3rd, allowing 2 runs on a double and two singles with an error and ground out sandwiched between the singles.


SRF finished the day allowing 3 runs (2ER) on 7 hits, including two doubles and a homer, over 6 innings for a 50 game score. Sean peppered the strike zone with 71-93 pitches going for strikes. He walked one and struck out 5 while inducing 8 ground ball out versus just 3 fly ball outs.


Last 10– 5-5, 3.71 ERA. SRF is pitching much better of late. He’s given his team 6 innings in 8 of his last 10 starts and lowered his ERA from 5.33 to 4.44 over the last 60.2 IP.
