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 only made one appearance this week, but he made it count. He worked 1.1 scoreless innings on Saturday against the Pirates, allowing just one hit and no runs. He was rewarded with this third hold of the season as a result. He’s now gone three consecutive outings without allowing a run.
Through June 28, Chargois has a 3.53 ERA with a 1.200 WHIP. He’s averaging 6.4 strikeouts per nine innings.
Anthony Rendon – Los Angeles Angels
No official timetable has been announced, but Rendon appears to be on track for a return from the injured list in the semi-near future. Placed on the IL with a left wrist contusion retroactive to June 16, Rendon was taking batting practice on the field on Tuesday. That would seem to suggest he’s not too far away from making his return to the lineup.
Through June 28, 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 made his third rehab appearance this week, throwing four scoreless innings, his longest outing to date. He gave up three hits and one run while striking out seven. He now has 14 punchouts across 10 innings pitched during this rehab stint with a 2.70 ERA as he works toward a return to the major league rotation.
