23-year old righty starting pitcher Vincent Velasquez is off to a blazing start for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2016! He has started 2 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.60 WHIP. He has tossed a complete game shutout this year and he has only allowed 6 hits and 3 walks in his first 15 innings this year while whiffing a very, very impressive 25 batters! Velasquez was part of the return for righty reliever Ken Giles in the Phillies’ big deal over the winter with the Astros! He pitched in 19 games (7 starts) for the Astros last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 1-1 with a 4.37 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. Kudos to the Phillies’ front office and scouting staff for seeing through the stats that Velasquez put up last year!
