Gus Schlosser improved to 5-2 on Sunday with seven strong innings against Winston-Salem.
The former Florida Southern star allowed only one run on four hits, with two walks and 10 strikeouts.
For the season, Schlosser now has an ERA of 3.95 in nine starts. He's allowed 62 hits in 57 innings, with only 10 walks and 44 strikeouts.
The Braves drafted Schlosser in the 17th round of last June's draft. He pitched in 19 games out of the bullpen for Rome last season. Schlosser had a 1.82 ERA, with 22 hits allowed in 29.2 innings, only four walks and 34 strikeouts.
Any pitching prospect with this type of control is worth watching, and now that Schlosser is having success as a starter, he's showing versatility as well.
Here is an interview I did with Schlosser in spring training:
