RHP Trevor Bauer, the third overall selection in last June’s draft, has quickly risen to the top of the minor leagues with his promotion to AAA on Thursday. After a solid spring in the Diamondbacks’ big league camp, Bauer has been dominant in eight starts with AA Mobile of the Southern League.
After a stellar career at UCLA, Bauer signed quickly with Arizona and got his first minor league start on July 30th of last year. In seven starts between hi A Visalia and AA Mobile, the righty showed big-time skills despite his 1-2 overall record and 5.96 ERA.
Following this year’s impressive Spring Training, Bauer reported to Mobile and has put up flashy numbers. Over 48 1/3 IP, he has allowed 33 hits, 26 BB and 60 K’s. Opponents are batting .192 against Bauer, who leaves AA this season with a record of 7-1 and a 1.68 ERA.
