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 was busy this week, hurling three scoreless innings against a pair of Lone Star teams. Last Friday, he struck out two in a one-inning outing against the Rangers. He then struck out on batter apiece in one-inning appearances against the Astros on Monday and Tuesday.
Through September 22, Chargois has a 2.76 ERA with a .980 WHIP. He’s averaging 6.6 strikeouts per nine innings.
Lucas Luetge – New York Yankees
Luetge appeared in two games this week, hurling a combined 2.1 innings. He allowed one earned run to the Brewers last Friday and one earned run to the Pirates on Wednesday, his longer appearance (two innings) in which he also tallied three strikeouts.
Through September 22, Luetge has a 2.82 ERA with a 1.307 WHIP. He’s averaging 9.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
Glenn Otto – Texas Rangers
Otto was saddled with a loss this week, his first since August 5. He’d won his previous two decisions. This time around, Otto allowed four runs (thanks to two home runs) in a 5-3 loss to the Rays.
Through September 22, Otto has a 4.88 ERA with a 1.373 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. There have been no new updates on that front just yet.
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.
