After flying high in his first few starts of rookie ball, Alaska pitching ace Dylan Baker seems to be coming back down to Earth.
The hard-throwing right-hander has seen his ERA balloon to 4.12 in eight starts. His record is 0-1.
Baker, of Juneau-Douglas fame, was a fifth round draft pick of the Cleveland Indians in this spring’s Major League Baseball draft.
He turned 20 yesterday.
Baker has given up 24 hits in 24 innings. He has a 30 to 15 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
