Farm fresh: Brock solid — again
By Cary Osborne
Oklahoma City Dodgers pitcher Brock Stewart, who has been arguably the one of the two best starting pitchers in the Dodger chain this year (the other being Julio Urias), had another outstanding outing on Friday night.
The 24-year-old right-hander went six innings, allowed four hits, one walk and tied a professional career high with 10 strikeouts, which he set in his previous start on June 19.
Stewart, in his 14 starts, has yet to allow more hits in a game than innings pitched.
His 0.81 ERA is fifth-best in all of the minor leagues. Stewart’s 99 strikeouts rank second.
Also of note Friday:
- DJ Peters, this year’s fourth-round draft pick, had a single and two doubles for Rookie League Ogden in a 7-6 defeat. Peters is 7 for 15 as a pro.
- Sixteen-round draft pick Darien Tubbs also went 3 for 4 and has a 1.092 OPS in 17 plate appearances.
- Imani Abdullah, the 11th-rounder from 2015, struck out 10 and walked none in five innings for Single-A Great Lakes in a 4-3 Loons victory. The 19-year-old has 28 strikeouts and three walks in 31 2/3 innings this year.
