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.
Ford Proctor – San Francisco Giants
Proctor made his MLB debut on September 24 against the Arizona Diamondbacks, picked up his first major league hit the following day and added his first major league RBI this week, as well. He’s now appeared in four games. A third round pick of the Rays in 2018, Proctor made it to the Show after five minor league seasons, almost entirely with the Rays until he was traded at the deadline to the Giants this year.
That would have been enough for a debut week, but Proctor didn’t stop there. On Thursday he mashed a grand slam, his first career home run.

Through September 29, Proctor is hitting .200 with one extra-base hits, one walk and threestrikeouts. His OPS is .750 and he’s collected five RBI.
Anthony Rendon – Los Angeles Angels
On Wednesday Rendon was activated from the Injured List and began officially serving his five game suspension. He’s expected to be available for the team’s final three game series in Oakland.
Rendon left off his season hitting .228 with 15 extra-base hits, 23 walks and 32 strikeouts. His OPS is .707 and he’s collected 24 RBI.
J.T. Chargois – Tampa Bay Rays
Chargois saw action in two games this week, earning his third hold of the season along the way. On Sunday he worked a scoreless inning against the Blue Jays, following it up with a scoreless inning on Tuesday against the Indians.
Through September 29, Chargois has a 2.79 ERA with a 1.034 WHIP. He’s averaging 6.5 strikeouts per nine innings.
Lucas Luetge – New York Yankees
Luetge posted an interesting box score in his lone outing this week. He closed out the seventh inning and opened the eighth for the Yankees against the Red Sox and was credited with both a blown save and a win, his fourth of the season. He allowed one inherited runner to score, but was not charged with any runs on his ledger.
Through September 29, Luetge has a 2.78 ERA with a 1.364 WHIP. He’s averaging 9.5 strikeouts per nine innings.
Glenn Otto – Texas Rangers
Otto worked 5.2 innings against the Guardians this week, allowing one earned run before being lifted in the fifth inning. He was one out away from recording another quality start.
Through September 29, Otto has a 4.73 ERA with a 1.342 WHIP. He’s averaging 6.9 strikeouts per nine innings.
