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.
J.T. Chargois – Tampa Bay Rays
Chargois earned his second hold of the season this week, allowing one run in two-thirds innings in a 4-2 win over the Yankees. He followed that up with one additional run over three innings across his next two appearances, another outing against the Yankees and one game at the Blue Jays.
Through September 15, Chargois has a 3.55 ERA with a 1.105 WHIP. He’s averaging 5.0 strikeouts per nine innings.
Lucas Luetge – New York Yankees
Luetge limited his opponents to one run and four hits across three appearances this week, spanning 2.2 innings pitched. The Yankees went 2-1 across his trio of outings. Luetge has now allowed one run or fewer in 42 of 45 appearances this season.
Through September 15, Luetge has a 2.60 ERA with a 1.269 WHIP. He’s averaging 9.2 strikeouts per nine innings.
Glenn Otto – Texas Rangers
Otto delivered another quality start this week, tossing six innings of two-run ball in the first end of a doubleheader against the Marlins on Monday. He’s now allowed two runs or fewer in six of his last eight starts.
Through September 15, Otto has a 4.71 ERA with a 1.352 WHIP. He’s averaging 7.0 strikeouts per nine innings.
Anthony Rendon – Los Angeles Angels
The Angels announced on June 17 that Rendon would undergo surgery on his right wrist, originally expected to end his season. Recent reports indicate Rendon might be mulling a late-season return. Although things are far from certain, there’s a chance Rendon suits up for the Halos again this year.
Rendon left off his season hitting .228 with 15 extra-base hits, 23 walks and 32 strikeouts. His OPS is .707 and he’s collected 24 RBI.
