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 made two appearances this week, working a combined 2.1 innings, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out one. Posting back-to-back scoreless outings was huge for Chargois after a pair of rocky appearances the week prior.
Through June 21, Chargois has a 4.24 ERA with a 1.235 WHIP. He’s averaging 7.9 strikeouts per nine innings.
Anthony Rendon – Los Angeles Angels
Rendon received some bad news this week, landing back on the injured list after being hit by a pitch in the Angels’ Thursday win over the Rangers. Officially on the 10-day injured list, Rendon is eligible to return to play as soon as June 26.
Through June 21, Rendon is hitting .248 with seven extra-base hits, 21 walks and 22 strikeouts. His OPS is .682 and he’s collected 21 RBI.
Glenn Otto – Texas Rangers
Otto worked three scoreless innings, striking out a trio of batters in his second rehab stint with the Rangers’ AAA club on Sunday. He hasn’t shown any obvious signs of rust in the early goings despite having been shut down for the last several weeks since the middle of spring training. For the time being he’s on track to make a couple more rehab starts before a decision has to be made on his immediate future, whether with the Rangers or in AAA.
