WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Mendoza has pitched mainly in relief so far.

2011
VSL:  1-0-0, 5.08 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 33.2 IP, 4.3 BB/9, 6.4 K/9

In his first season, Mendoza struggled a little.

2012
DSL:  1-0-0, 2.48 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 32.2 IP, 3.9 BB/9, 6.1 K/9

Mendoza got better results, but his walk and K rates remained mediocre.

2013
DSL:  2-0-5, 3.03 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 32.2 IP, 1.9 BB/9, 7.4 K/9

Mendoza’s ERA went up, but his other numbers were much better.

Mendoza opened with Jamestown in 2014.  He’ll turn 22 by the time the season starts, so his chances of being more than an organizational player are probably limited.
