Danny Rosenbaum Named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week

Danny RosenbaumOn the strength of his four-hit complete game on last Wednesday, Danny Rosenbaum was named the Eastern League’s Pitcher of the Week for the period of April 16 to 22.

Rosenbaum walked none and struck out nine for the game, throwing just 95 pitches — 71 for strikes — to earn his second win in three starts for the Harrisburg Senators. The 22nd-round pick of the 2009 draft leads the Eastern League with a 0.65 WHIP and is fourth in ERA with a mark of 1.25.

The complete game was Rosenbaum’s second nine-inning effort in less than a calendar year, as the 24-year-old tossed a shutout last June against the Wilmington Blue Rocks, a three-hit, one-walk effort.

    1. Looks like Peacock made it as well. Have to see how Rosenbaum does in AAA. I expect that’ll be around June?

  1. Roughly, but that’s presuming 1-2 of the older arms at AAA have moved on. New world order with a 1st-place parent club w/ lots o’ pitching…

    1. Byron Kerr had a good post about Jeff Mandel as well as Danny Rosenbaum. And I read Ryan Tatusko latest blog post about XST with interest.

      Do you know why they are alternating Erik Arneson and Jeff Mandel between Syracuse and Harrisburg? Do they have plans for those two or are they just Org guys at this point?

      Do you think they will give Rosenbaum a chance to compete for the fifth starters spot next spring?

      1. They’re using Arnesen and Mandel as OGs so it’s tough to deduce plans beyond that. As we’ve seen from Kerr’s reports, it’s tough to get anything of substance from Nats officials; it’s not unlike what I used to hear from HS coaches where everyone was “a good athlete” or had “a live arm.”

        As for next spring, I think it might be prudent to wait until the 2012 season finishes at a minimum before filling out the 2013 Opening Day roster.

  2. Our friend Brad Peacock got lit up last night in Reno and not in a good way, going 4 1/3 and giving up 10 hits and 7 runs.
