Ryan Horstman – LHP

Ryan Horstman is likely the least recognizable name in this slideshow, but he has done a nice job so far in Arizona. The 23-year-old southpaw has hurled 4 shutout frames for the Javelins while striking out 1 and walking 2. Horstman is one of only three Peoria pitchers who have yet to allow a run this year.

The Mariners selected Horstman out of St. John’s University in the 4th round of the 2013 draft. Injuries have limited him to just 16 career appearances in the minor leagues. However, Horstman has been dominant when healthy, going 3-0 and registering a 0.40 ERA though 22.1 innings.
