Ole Miss Baseball: MLB Rebels Fight Through some Early Season Struggles

Mitchell Layton

In a surprise this spring, Aaron Barrett made the Washington Nationals Opening Day roster as part of their bullpen. Not only that, he got credited for the win in the first game on Opening Day (not to be confused with the Opening Series or Opening Night). So far, he has the one win and one hold for a 1-0 record with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.69 WHIP so far on the young season. He has struck out 6 in 4.1 innings pitched and walked 2.

Zack Cozart has started off slow at the plate for the Reds, with a .105/.150/.158 slash line (average/on base percentage/slugging) through 11 games played. His glove along with few other options will give him continued playing time in Cincinnati.

Lance Lynn struggled a bit in his first two starts, but managed to pick up the win in each before settling in to shut down the red hot Brew Crew last night - no runs in 7 innings and 11 K. On the season, he is now 3-0 with a 4.00 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. He has struck out 22 and walked 4 in 18 innings.

Alex Presley has also started off slow for the Astros. He is in the mix for them at outfield, playing and starting in 9 games so far with a .139/.139/.306 slash line.

Drew Pomeranz made the Oakland bullpen, and is in line to pitch in long relief or perhaps make an occasional spot start for the A's. Drew picked up a win in extra innings, and is 1-0 on the young season with a 1.00 WHIP and 2.25 ERA. In 4 innings pitched, he has struck out 2 and walked 2.

Seth Smith hit an Opening Night pinch hit home run off of Brian Wilson to tie the game in dramatic fashion. (Not to be confused with the Opening Series or Opening Day). So far he has ,231/.333/.436 for the San Diego Padres with 2 HR and 4 RBI while appearing in all 13 games for the Padres so far.

I will try and keep an eye on things and update again later, and check in and see how the former Rebels are doing in the minor leagues as well maybe.
