Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to the Sem Robberse.

 

The 19-yr-old native of Zeist, Netherlands entered the game in the 3rd inning with the D-Jays down 2-0. Sem got the leadoff batter to pop out, striking out the next two batters for a 14 pitch 1-2-3 inning. He walked the leadoff batter in the 4th but a strikeout, pop-out, and flyout ended the innings.

 

The 6-foot-1 righty struck out the side in the 5th. A strikeout sandwiched between two ground ball outs gave the surging righty another 1-2-3 inning in the 6th. Robberse issued another walk in the 7th but retired the side with a ground ball out, pop out, and a strikeout.

 

Sem Robberse finished with 5 no-hit innings, walking 2 and striking out 8. He induced 3 ground ball outs and one flyball out. He threw 53 of his 75 pitches for strikes.

 

Over the past 30 days, Sem Robberse has pitched 24 innings allowing 8 runs (2HRA) on 14 innings and walking 7 for a 0.88WHIP and 3.00ERA. Sem struck out 28 in 5 appearances (4 starts).

 

For the season, Sem Robberse has made 9 appearances, throwing 33.2 innings. He owns a 4.54ERA and 1.10WHIP while holding opponents to a .190BA.
