The 2022 MLB season is underway and Rice baseball alums are busy on the mound and at the plate. Here’s the latest from the MLB Owls.
Anthony Rendon – Los Angeles Angles
Rendon’s bat has started to heat up. After sporting a .118 average through five games, Rendon has hit .278 over his last 10 contests, including his second home run of the season and three doubles. Meanwhile, his glove remains as amazing as ever.

Through April 27, Rendon is hitting .226 with five extra-base hits, 10 walks and 13 strikeouts. His OPS is .750 and he’s collected six RBI.
Tyler Duffey – Minnesota Twins
Duffey’s first outing of the season was rocky, but he bounced back quickly, putting together much better appearances over the course of the next few weeks. Duffey has allowed two earned runs in his last five appearances, whittling his season ERA down from 18.00 to 6.00. He picked up his first win and his first hold of the season during that time.
Through April 27, Duffey has a 6.00 ERA with a 1.500 WHIP. He’s averaging 9.0 strikeouts per nine innings.
Lucas Luetge – New York Yankees
Luetge has been busy over the last few weeks. Since April 13, he’s appeared in five games, three of which were spotless, one inning relief appearances in which he allowed no runs. He picked up his first hold of the season in that span as well.
His last outing was more tenuous. Luetge allowed three runs to the Orioles in 0.2 innings. Fortuantely for him, the Yankees still won 12-8.
Through April 27, Luetge has a 6.00 ERA with a 1.500 WHIP. He’s averaging 12.0 strikeouts per nine innings.
J.T. Chargois – Tampa Bay Rays
Shortly after his first appearance of the season, the Rays were forced to play Chargois on the injured list with an oblique injury. Manager Kevin Cash told reporters this week Chargois has begun playing catch, but there does not appear to be an official timetable for his return.
Through April 27, Chargois has a 0.00 ERA with a 0.000 WHIP. He’s averaging 13.5 strikeouts per nine innings.
