We're now a quarter of the way through the 2011 MLB season and some MLB relievers (and 1 starting pitcher) still haven't allowed an earned run, meaning they have squeaky clean 0.00 ERAs. The following is a list of pitchers with at least 10 innings pitched and nary a run surrendered.
0.00 ERA Club:
Sergio Santos/CHW - 16 G, 20 IP
Pedro Beato/NYM - 11 G, 17 IP
Johnny Cueto/CIN - 2 GS, 13.2 IP
Brad Ziegler/OAK - 16 G, 12.2 IP
Scott Downs/LAA - 11 G, 10 IP
*Beato is a Rule 5 pick that was just activated from the DL and has yet to pitch since his return.
*Another Rule 5 pick, Joe Patterson of the Diamondbacks has made 17 appearances and still has a 0.00 ERA, but has only pitched 8.2 innings.
*The Phillies Jose Contreras also sports a 0.00 ERA and will soon be ready to return from the DL.
*The Pirates Daniel McCutchen finally allowed an earned run last week, thus excluded him from the exclusive club.
