The 2022 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 had a routine off day on Tuesday, piggybacking off a scheduled off day on Monday for a two-day break. The short time off meant he only appeared in three games since the prior update, collecting three hits, one of which was a double.
Through May 25 Rendon is hitting .239 with 14 extra-base hits, 20 walks and 31 strikeouts. His OPS is .742 and he’s collected 22 RBI.
J.T. Chargois – Tampa Bay Rays
Chargois suffered a setback in his rehab process this week and was placed on the 60-day IL pushing his return to the mound back by several weeks.
Through May 25, Chargois has a 0.00 ERA with a 0.000 WHIP. He’s averaging 13.5 strikeouts per nine innings.
Tyler Duffey – Minnesota Twins
Duffer was extremely active this week, appearing in three games and earning two holds and his second win of the season. His most recent outing against the Tigers was his best, striking out two of the three batters he faced to preserve a 2-0 lead in the eighth inning before ceding to Jhoan Duran who earned the ninth inning save.
Tyler Duffey since blowing a save in the #MNTwins second game of the season: 2.76 ERA, .222 batting average against, and 15/3 K/BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings.

Through May 25, Duffey has a 3.63 ERA with a 1.096 WHIP. He’s averaging 8.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
Lucas Luetge – New York Yankees
Luetge was saddled with his first loss of the season last Thursday, allowing a walk-off home run against the Orioles in what had been a tied ballgame in the ninth inning. He bounced back with a scoreless inning against the White Sox three days later and record an out against the long better he faced against the Orioles on Tuesday.
Through May 25, Luetge has a 5.56 ERA with a 1.500 WHIP. He’s averaging 10.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
Glenn Otto – Texas Rangers
Otto made his fifth start of the season last Thursday, going six innings against the Astros while allowing just two earned runs. Despite the quality start, he was handed a loss thanks to a meager one-run showing from his lineup in response. Otto is 1-2 this season.
Through May 25, Otto has a 5.55 ERA with a 1.479 WHIP. He’s averaging 6.7 strikeouts per nine innings.
