Happened yesterday, but little word around the Halosphere about this one.
Hurtado: the 6'3" right-hander from the Dominican turns 19 later this month, and this is already his third season with the Angels in the DSL. Season over season, his groundball tendencies have increased, while his walk rate has decreased. He's 5-0 this season across his first nine starts with a 1.50 ERA, and .193 average against, and has two complete games.
Not enough can be said about the Angels' Dominican franchise this year. The DSL Angels are 32-8, holding the best record of 33 teams in the Dominican Summer League. They have the best staff ERA (1.99 -- the nearest rival is at 2.59) and lowest WHIP of all teams. Their offense has scored more runs than any other team in the League, and has the second-highest OPS to boot. We need more DSL news, because something special is happening on the island for the cherubs this season.
