The Mets announcers said he lead the Int. league in walks, hit batsmen and wild pitches—-can’t get much worse than that. Garrett had impressive velocity and even though his off speed pitches were sharp, he noticeably slows his deliver when throwing them—-in time this will catch up to him. and 22 HRs in 63 innings has to be close to a record one would think. MK September 9, 2017 Have to wonder if Santillan was still experiencing a little shoulder stiffness as it seemed it took a couple of innings to gain his command. it seemed to me he was really rushing his motion, like he could make up for a lack of strength by speeding everything up. Threw 30 pitches in first inning but then seemed to get comfortable and get it together.
