He's been a binky of mine for awhile. He added considerable velocity in 2019 and pitched much better in the 2nd half. This year, he's off to another great start. I think he's on the verge of climbing up the ranks in a hurry but his size could possibly limit him to a bullpen role.

He just turned 22 and is repeating the year in Greenville, though that makes some sense given his age and the time off.

Bello's last 10 starts in 2019: 10 games, 3.00 era, 54.0 ip, 9bb/59k, .235/.280/.363 against. 26.8% K rate, 4.1% BB rate. His best start of the year being a 6.0 ip, 5 hit, 0r/0er, 0bb/13k masterpiece.

So far this season, in 4 starts: 2.11 era, 21.1 ip, 4bb/30k. .192/.234/.274 38.9% K rate, 5.2% bb rate.


Last 75.1 ip, he has 13bb/89k. That's ridiculous.

Wow, that’s a helluva line. The K/BB ratio really stands out, especially at an age when a lot of high-K rate pitchers can also have trouble harnessing raw stuff.

Sox prospects updated their rankings and Bello jumped from 24 to 9.

He was also named their pitcher of the month for May.

Funny thing is, his BAbip against right now is .328, so he has been somewhat unlucky. On the year, hitters are slashing .217/.262/.322. 36.9% K rate, 5.7% BB rate.

He's always been a control pitcher, having gone into 2021 with a 6.2% BB rate against 779 batters. His K rate was 24.7%.

Anyway, going back to the 2nd half of 2019: 16 games, 2.73 era, 85.2 ip, 73 hits, 16bb/104k, 6 HRA. Hitters are slashing .229/.272/.348 with a .316 BAbip during that time, 342 Batters faced.

30.4% K rate, 4.7% BB rate. 1.8% HR rate. 6.5:1 K/BB ratio.

Well deserved promotion.
