Bryan Woo - Aug 28th vs. OAK (6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K)

Game Score: 70

Similar to Miller, he made a big jump from Double A to the majors, although his 2.05 ERA on the Arkansas Travelers over 44 innings gave fans high hopes. Woo mostly delivered and crucially had his crowning moment late into Seattle's playoff push.

With five strikeouts and nine swings and misses, he helped lead the Mariners a 7-0 win over Oakland. His four-seam fastball almost touched 97.0 mph but mostly sat in the 94.0 mph range. He also used a cutter that was quite a bit slower and almost doubled as an off-speed pitch, hovering around the 85.0 mph mark.

He has great fastballs but a limited breaking ball arsenal, with his slider and changeup both accumulating negative run values. He threw the changeup just 52 times so he may seek to make further adjustments to his arsenal for the future.

Woo has been touted as a possible trade asset and he'd undoubtedly be valuable to many teams in baseball. Whether the Mariners choose to keep him or hock him in exchange for some improved bats, he'll be a major contributor to the team's success in the upcoming year.
