Mitch Keller (1-2) took the loss Thursday against the Padres, allowing seven runs on nine hits and three walks in 3.1 innings. He struck out one.
Keller could not follow up his solid outing last week. He was in immediate trouble in this game, surrendering four runs in the first and allowing constant baserunners. Even more discouraging is his lack of strikeout numbers so far this spring. Keller's ERA sits at a rough 8.74 and his WHIP at 2.12. He lines up to take on the Tigers next week, where he'll look to get back on track.
