The 2023 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 Angels
Rendon will have to wait a bit longer to get into the groove of the 2023 season. The Angels’ infielder was suspended five games (later reduced to four games on appeal) and fined an undisclosed amount following an altercation with a fan on opening. He was hitless in his first two appearances.
Through April 4, Rendon is hitting .000 with no extra-base hits, one walk and two strikeouts. His OPS is .125 and he’s collected one RBI.
J.T. Chargois – Miami Marlins
Chargois is three appearances into the 2023 season, his first with the Miami Marlins, and things couldn’t be going much better for the veteran reliever. He’s pitched a combined 3.0 innings with three strikeouts, no hits allowed and no runs, earning one hold in the process. He’s inherited four runners. None have scored.
Through April 4, Chargois has a 0.00 ERA with a 0.000 WHIP. He’s averaging 9.0 strikeouts per nine innings.
Lucas Luetge – Atlanta Braves
Luetge made his debut with the Braves on Opening Day, his only appearance with the club to date, and was part of a 7-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. Luetge worked one inning, allowing two hits and one run, entering in the fourth inning before being lifted in the fifth.
Through April 4, Luetge has a 9.00 ERA with a 2.000 WHIP. He’s averaging 0.0 strikeouts per nine innings.
Glenn Otto – Texas Rangers
Otto did not appear on the Rangers Opening Day roster despite making 27 starts for the club last season. Instead, he began the year on the injured list, landing on the 60-day IL on March 30 with a right shoulder strain. He will be sidelined for the foreseeable future.
Ford Proctor – San Francisco Giants
Proctor was a September call-up of the Giants last season and was a non-roster invite to Spring Training this offseason. He’s begun the year with San Francisco’s Triple-A affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats.
