Trending Down: Harold Arauz, RHP, Reading

Arauz opened the year with 5.0 shutout innings against Erie and entered mid-May with a sub 3.30 ERA. Since then, it has been downhill for the 23-year-old right-hander.

Since May 13, Arauz has given up at least four earned runs in five of his seven starts. His last time out on June 14 was his worst start of the year. In that game, Arauz lasted just 4.1 innings and gave up nine hits and nine runs, seven of which were earned.

Overall, Arauz is 3-4 with a 5.17 ERA in 13 starts. He’s given up 74 hits in 71.1 innings pitched and opponents are hitting .270 against him.

He’s still young and it is his first full year in AA, but Arauz has pitched poorly this year and has plenty of room for improvement at just23-years-old.
