As most of you who follow the minor league thread already know, Callahan is struggling. These stats are missing yesterdays poor start, so these stats are a bit better than actual.
 
 
 

Jamie Callahan, RHP
Speaking of youth and inexperience, Callahan has had a rough go of things lately. While his peripherals look solid enough for the most part, he's been getting hit far too often for his own good, allowing nearly 13 hits per nine innings, resulting in nearly two baserunners per inning when you account for his 4.5 walks per nine. He's keeping the ball on the ground instead of in the air, so opposing hitters can only be hitting the ball so hard and so square, but it seems like everything the opposition makes contact with is turning into a hit.
Whether that's all from poor luck, or it has to do with Callahan learning the ropes of full-season ball slower than you'd like, is unknown. It could safely be argued, though, that he needs to work on not only throwing more strikes, but also throwing more quality ones when he manages to do so. The walks are likely a byproduct of an approach that induces grounders, but too many baseballs are likely being left up just enough for opposing batters to put a charge behind their grounder and get it through an infield hole.
