Jose De Leon dominates again while waiting for his chance
As the Dodgers turn to Bud Norris, Ross Stripling, and Brett Anderson over the next three games, they all better be on their game because Jose De Leon is putting everyone on notice.
He’s ready for his chance.
On Wednesday night Jose pitched another strong seven innings, striking out ten without a walk while giving up two earned runs. That is four straight starts of at least six innings, and never more than two runs given up. In total over those four starts, 27 innings, six earned runs, four walks, and twenty-three strikeouts.
Jose De Leon, rhp, Dodgers. The Dodgers’ No. 2 prospect at midseason, the former Southern ace is positioning himself to help the big club later this season. He struck out 10 Wednesday in Triple-A Oklahoma City’s 3-2 win over Albuquerque (Rockies). De Leon allowed just six hits and two runs in six innings, walking none. De Leon has a fastball that sits 92-93 mph and touches 95 with a great spin rate. He throws a tight slider but the difference-maker is his double-plus changeup.
