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.
Dane Myers – Miami Marlins
Myers proved himself mortal this past week, following a pair of three-hit games with four hitless performances. The relatively cool streak, given his hot start, dropped his average from .444 to a still robust .308. He’s run into some bad luck of late, but remains a mainstay for the Marlins in center field.
Through July 25, Myers is hitting .308 with three extra-base hits, one walk and 13 strikeouts. His OPS is .725 and he’s collected eight RBI.
J.T. Chargois – Miami Marlins
Chargois made two appearances this week, the first a scoreless sixth inning against the Cardinals, registering one walk, one strikeout and no hits. His second outing was less pristine, allowing two runs on two hits (one a home run) in a 4-3 loss to the Rockies. He was charged with a blown save.
Through July 25, Chargois has a 3.91 ERA with a 1.130 WHIP. He’s averaging 7.0 strikeouts per nine innings.
Glenn Otto – Texas Rangers
Ottow went more than two weeks in between appearances but finally got back on the mound on Saturday in a blowout game against the Dodgers. He surrendered two home runs and was charged with five runs against his ledger, part of a 16-3 loss to the visiting squad. It was Otto’s toughest result of the season to date, although he’s only appeared in four games.
Through July 25, Otto has a 10.80 ERA with a 1.800 WHIP. He’s averaging 9.7 strikeouts per nine innings.
Anthony Rendon – Los Angeles Angels
Rendon remains on the Injured List after fouling a ball off his leg and suffering a shin contusion earlier this season. He’s eligible to return whenever he’s deemed healthy, but there has been no indication as to when that will be.
Through July 25, Rendon is hitting .236 with eight extra-base hits, 25 walks and 27 strikeouts. His OPS is .678 and he’s collected 22 RBI.
