Bridwell – Over 140

With 13 games left in the 2013 season, Parker Bridwell leads all Orioles minor league pitchers with 131 strikeouts.  He will likely get 2-3 more starts with the Shorebirds which will leave him with a good chance of being between 140-150 K’s this season.

Who is the last Shorebirds pitcher to fan 140 batters in a single season?

The answer is Cole McCurry, who struck out 145 in 2009.
