Wilfredo Boscan has quietly turned in a dominant campaign as a member of the Indianapolis Indians rotation. The right-hander is the Tribe’s lone starter featured among the top-10 ERAs in the International League this season (eighth), and with a 9-3 record as of Aug. 29, is currently tied for his career-high mark in victories from 2008 and 2010 in the Texas Rangers organization.
Here’s a few notes on Boscan:
YES WE BOS-CAN!
Wilfredo Boscan makes the start on Aug. 29 with a streak of limiting opponents to two or fewer earned runs in 12 straight appearances and 11 straight starts … He has won all but one decision in that stretch, combining to go 6-1 with a 1.81 ERA (13er/64.2ip) since June 14.
IN AWE IN AUGUST
Indianapolis’ righty has allowed just three runs in four starts this month, and enters Saturday ranked third in the IL with a 1.07 ERA during August … He has compiled this month’s ERA over an impressive 25 1/3 innings of work, and trails only the top Tribe prospect Tyler Glasnow (0.81) and Syracuse starter AJ Cole (0.84) for the league’s best mark during August.
IN IT TO WIN IT
Boscan has gone unbeaten in each of his last 10 appearances and in nine straight starts following his outing on June 22 at Gwinnett … He is 5-0 with a 1.63 ERA (second in the IL) during the unbeaten streak and joins Jarrett Grube (7-0 record with Columbus) as the IL’s only two pitchers with five or more wins and no losses in that time.
