The Spirit added two lefties yesterday- Craig Snipp and Melvin Alvarez.
Snipp is coming off four years pitching at Kentucky. The SEC is a good conference so you don't have to take his numbers with as much of a grain of salt as you do with many guys coming out of college. With that said, his numbers weren't that great:
7-5, 3.48 ERA
83 SO/25 W
4-5, 5.29 ERA
38 SO/17 W
2-8, 7.62 ERA
56 SO/20 W
The best thing I can say is that he really improved this year, and has had good K/BB ratios.
Alvarez, 24, had limited action in the Gulf Coast league in 01 and 02 but hasn't pitched since.
