2015 Record: 78-49
#55 Joe Blanton
Aug 27: Blanton struck out three in two scoreless relief innings Wednesday against the Marlins. The 34-year-old has surpassed whatever expectations Pittsburgh had for him, throwing 17 innings of one-run ball in a Pirates uniform since the beginning of August. Blanton has allowed only 11 hits while compiling a 23:5 K:BB ratio. It's unlikely the righthander maintains his current pace but he's already scarfed up three wins in relief and has given an overtaxed bullpen much-needed rest.
