Jason has a career Major League record of 55-98, 4.99 and pitched in Japan last year. He won in double figures in 2001 and 2003 and led the American League with four shutouts in 2004.
He was signed as a free agent by the Pirates in 1992, drafted by Tampa Bay from Pittsburgh in 1997, traded to Baltimore in 1999, granted free agency in 2003, signed by Detroit, granted free agency in 2005 signed by Cleveland in 2006, purchased by the Red Sox in 2006 and released, signed by Cincinnati in 2006 and released after the season. He then signed with Los Angeles as a free agent.
Stephen was selected by the Dodgers in the 13th round of he 2005 draft. After striking out 86 with Ogden in 2006 he was recruited for an emergency appearance with Jacksonville and worked two innings, retiring all six he face in order. Three days later he pitched another inning and 2/3 without allowing a run
He has an excellent feel for the craft probably because he's been schooled well by his father, former major league pitcher Dave, who pitched in 53 games for the Orioles 1974-75 and Twins from 1977-78 who now conducts a baseball school in addition to working on Oriole telecasts.
Steve doesn't get people out with mid to upper 90's heat. Rather, he relies a lot on a sinking fast ball that usually hovers around 90 and also throws an advanced change.
In 2007 he started strongly with Great Lakes, missed much of the middle of the season with an aching arm, then impressed the Dodgers so much down the stretch he was sent to extended spring training where he again dazzled.
Between the two of them, Jason is 8-3 for Las Vegas and Steven is 7-2 with Great Lakes. Jason ranks first in starts (t13), third in innings pitched (69.2), fourth in strikeouts (58) and sixth in strikeouts per nine innings. Steven is first in WHIP (walks plus hits per nine innings) with a 1.17 mark, second in hits per nine innings (7.62) and eighth in strikeouts (46).
On the batting side of the ledger, John Lindsey of Las Vegas leads the system in batting average (.327), slugging (.585) and OPS (on-base + slugging) with a 1.008 mark. Andy LaRoche tops the charts in on-base percentage.
