Dontrelle continued his abysmal season through yet another AAA start yesterday.
5.2IP, 7H, 5ER, 3BB/3K, 2HR
Even more disturbing... his deception seems to be completely gone, even to minor league hitters.
79 Pitches, 46 Strikes. Charlotte hitters swung at 21 of those 46 strikes, and put 19 in play. Only two swings and misses. 19 out of 21 swings with contact. You don't see those kinds of numbers unless you're playing slow-pitch softball.
Things do not
appear to be going well for Dontrelle right now. In fact, until he actually pitches better
than someone in Detroit's rotation (which shouldn't be that hard right now), he's probably not going to be put back in the majors.
