He had his share of struggles but bounced back and pitched very well post ASB, improving his BB rate dramatically (almost by half) although the HR rate went up by quite a bit. What is most encouraging is that he kept his K rate up while lowering his BB rate.

9.86 K/9, 3.02 BB/9 is very respectable especially when you consider he is only 22 and has very limited experience over A ball.

He finishes the season ranked #54 among all starting pitchers according to ESPN PR in his rookie campaign (just behind Clemens and Pedro). Overall, a solid season and as long as he can stay healthy, I expect him to be an excellent pitcher next season.


First, 9.86 K/9, 3.02 BB/9 is better than respectible, especially for a 22 year old rookie. Second, I do agree he will be good from here on out as long as he doesn't have any injury set backs.

You are right. Those rates are really, really good. He is on my must-draft list going into 07.

Is Hamels being shut down for the year now or will he make one more start?
