Scott Downs and Aroldis Chapman each surrendered earned runs this past week, leaving the winner of the last reliever standing as Rule 5 pick Lucas Luetge. He probably has no clue he won this "award", but congratulations to the Seattle Mariners lefty anyway. For those of you not in the know, Luetge is the only relief pitcher to have a pristine 0.00 ERA after starting the season on the Opening Day roster. Side note- he was part of a no-hit effort this past week against the Dodgers. The kid is enjoying life for sure.
Luetge 2012 Stats:
23 G, 15 IP, 14 K, 1 W, 4 HLD, 0.00 ERA, 1.27 WHIP.
Now let's see how long he can continue to string together scoreless appearances...
