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.
J.T. Chargois – Miami Marlins
Chargois has returned to a more regular rhythm this week following his return to the big league team after more than a month off. He’s pitched in three games over the past six days. He earned his first save of the year on Sunday, working a scoreless ninth inning against the Angels. Over the course of the week, he allowed one run in 3.0 innings of work.
Through May 31, Chargois has a 2.70 ERA with a 1.100 WHIP. He’s averaging 6.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
Lucas Luetge – Atlanta Braves
After consecutive rough outings, Luetge was designated for assignment. He’s had a tough go as of late since returning to the majors after injury that kept him off the field for several weeks.
Through May 31, Luetge has a 10.24 ERA with a 2.172 WHIP. He’s averaging 9.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
Anthony Rendon – Los Angeles Angels
Despite earlier reports that Rendon was close to returning, there is no updated timetable for when the former Rice Baseball slugger will be activated from the 10-day injured list. He hasn’t appeared in a game for the Halos since May 13, a span of more than two weeks and counting.
Through May 31, Rendon is hitting .301 with five extra-base hits, 19 walks and 15 strikeouts. His OPS is .784 and he’s collected 20 RBI.
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. As the calendar turns to June, Otto could be in line to begin rehab work and chart a course back to the big league team.
