Ryan Dull, right-handed pitcher formerly of the 2011 Mat-Su Miners, has put the Midwest League on lockdown to start the 2013 minor league season.
Dull has logged a 1.56 ERA over 17.1 innings of relief. He’s struck out 26 of the batters he’s faced while walking a paltry two. Opposing batters are hitting a pathetic .153 average against him.
Since being drafted in the 32nd round by Oakland last year, Dull has made steady progress from the short-season leagues up to Single-A ball. On his professional career, he’s gone 6-2 with a 2.20 ERA and has a 13.49 strikeout/walk ratio. If Dull continues to do well and earn respect as a prospect, the next stop for him could be the Stockton Ports of the Class-A Advanced California League.
With the Miners in 2011, dull fashioned a 2.75 ERA with 18 strikeouts and 6 walks on 19.2 innings of work. His performance was good enough to earn him an All-Star appearance.
