Dan McCutchen threw a complete game shutout last night for the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees. He scattered 5 hits, didn't walk anyone, and struck out 10 Syracuse Chiefs. It was McCutchen's second CG SO since his promotion to AAA. He struggled some overall immediately after the promotion, (frequently plagued by the "one big inning", that often ruined an otherwise nice performance) but has now given up only 1 ER over his last 15 innings, and has lowered his overall ERA to 3.36.
Given the way Darrell Rasner has pitched of late, and the fact that Sidney Ponson still sucks regardless of what uniform he's wearing, I have to think they need to give McCutchen a look. Sooner rather than later please. Really, what do they have to lose?
