Farmstros '09 in Review- Part 1- Lexington's Arms in April


With two of Houston's top draft picks from 2008 (Jordan Lyles and Ross Seaton) in the rotation, expectations were high for Lexington's pitching coming out of Spring Training. Those expectations were met, especially in the first month. Four of Lexington's five starters ended the month of April with at least three starts and an ERA under 2.00. In addition, one reliever got started on a solid season with the Legends and another was so dominant that he earned himself a call-up all the way to AA Corpus Christi in May.

Ironically, Lyles, the starter who struggled the most out of the gate, ended the season as the ace of the staff and the top pitching prospect in the minor league system.
