Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Chad Dallas of the Vancouver Canadians.

 

Chad Dallas pitched more innings than any other C’s pitcher in 2022. The 22-yr-old out of Orange, TX., made his first start on April 13th throwing 5 scoreless innings with 8K. Dallas would strike out 8 batters in a start three times in ’22, finishing with 86 strikeouts and 8.8K/9.

 

Dallas struggled most of the season with his command walking 5 batters twice and 4 batters three times, finishing with 51BB and 5.22BB/9. The righty allowed 85 hits and finished with a 1.55WHIP.

 

The former 4th round pick from Tennessee finished with a record of 1-7 with a 4.60ERA. Chad posted a 5.5oFIP and 4.93xFIP with a .287BABIP suggesting that he may have even been a little lucky with his ERA.

 

In 21 starts, Chad allowed 13 home runs, 1.33HR/9. Opponents batted .243 off him, hitting 22.5LD%, 43.9GB%, and 33.6FB%.

Lopez Show

Otto Lopez

The 23-yr-old prospect manned the keystone and batted leadoff for Buffalo. Otto went hitless in 3 at-bats but still made an impact with a pair of walks. In 90 games, Otto Lopez is batting .292 with a .783OPS, 19 doubles, 6 triples, 3HR, 34RBI, 53 runs scored, and 14 stolen bases.
