The Outfield Fly Ruling

Becherer was drafted just 2 months after undergoing Tommy John Surgery, which is why he is yet to make his professional debut. In his first year at Rend Lake College, he pitched 48.1 innings, struck out 51, walked 28, and sported a 2.61 ERA. He was even better in the spring of 2016, striking out 43 in 27 innings before the elbow went kaput. Atlanta hasn’t discussed what their plans are for Becherer, but he could be a quick riser through the system once healthy if he is slotted into a relief role, where some think he could flourish with mid-90’s heat.
