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
Everything is coming up roses for Dane Myers in his debut season as a major leaguer. Following a 3-for-4 performance on Monday (his second three-hit outing of the week) that pushed his average up to an incredible .444 he might just force the Marlins to find a way to keep him in the lineup for the foreseeable future, not just as an injury fill-in. And it’s not just empty numbers, Myers has delivered some And it’s not just empty numbers too!

Through July 18, Myers is hitting .400 with three extra-base hits, one walk and eight strikeouts. His OPS is .940 and he’s collected eight RBI.
J.T. Chargois – Miami Marlins
Chargois has been busy since the All-Star Break, appearing in three games this week in the span of five days. He combined to work 2.2 innings, allowing one hit and one walk with two strikeouts. He was able to strand a pair of inherited runners on Saturday, but allowed two to score on Monday.
Through July 18, Chargois has a 3.50 ERA with a 1.095 WHIP. He’s averaging 6.9 strikeouts per nine innings.
Glenn Otto – Texas Rangers
Otto has not made any appearances since the All-Star Break.
Through July 18, Otto has a 7.11 ERA with a 1.105 WHIP. He’s averaging 8.5 strikeouts per nine innings.
Anthony Rendon – Los Angeles Angels
Despite early optimism Rendon would be able to return early after the All-Star break he was officially placed on the Injured List this week. It’s more bad luck for Rendon, who is headed to the IL for his third stint this season, this time for a shin contusion suffered after fouling a ball off his leg. This stint is retroactive to July 11, so he’ll be eligible to return fairly soon if he’s able.
Through the All-Star Break, Rendon is hitting .236 with eight extra-base hits, 25 walks and 27 strikeouts. His OPS is .678 and he’s collected 22 RBI.
