TigsStats: 2009 VSL Tigers Pitchers

How did Wilfredo Ramirez do in the VSL?

The TigsStats series now resumes in 2010 with a look back at the organization's minor league clubs and their performances. Now onto the final minor league stop, we take a look at the performance of the Tigers arms in Venezuela.

High Level Analysis:

For the most part, the Venezuelan pitchers didn't have the same fluctuations that a lot of the other rookie pitchers, especially in the Dominican, where a lack of control and inconsistent umpires often caused lots of strikeouts and walks.

Ramirez pitched very well, and it's clear to see why he was brought stateside. His K:BB ratio is a statistician's dream.

Guilarte had an FIP almost a full three points lower than his ERA, it's safe to say he suffered from some bad fortune and actually pitched fairly well for the team.

Carreno had a K:BB rate almost as good as Ramirez, but also had an FIP that mirrored and emphasized how good he was and that the ERA was legit.
