Final Thoughts

Vince Velasquez has been a major disappointment in his second season with the team.

Velasquez through eight starts has only provided two quality starts. He’s allowed three runs or less in only four appearances. He’s allowed less than three runs in only one.

Velasquez is ERA is just a shade below 6.00 at 5.98. It’s still early in the season, but he just hasn’t been able to get himself into a groove through the first month and a half. on Facebook
