Slightly under the radar, LHP Darin Gorski has put together a solid season for the AA Binghamton Mets.
Overall, he is 9-7 with a 3.66 ERA (where league average is 3.90) with a 2.4 K/BB ratio (where 2.2 is league average).
In the first half, he had a 3.89 ERA with a 1.9 K/BB ratio (66 K/34 BB) in 88 innings. In eight starts after the All-Star Break, he trimmed his ERA to 3.26 while increasing his K/BB to 3.3 (50 K/15 BB) in 49.2 innings. Notably, he has improved on both sides of that key ratio: his strikeout rate has risen, from 18% in the first half to 24% in the second half, while his walk rate has fallen from 9% in the first half to 7% in the second half.
