Live Chat w/ Casey Janssen- Wednesday Jan.25
Janssen began the season with the Lansing Lugnuts, receiving the nod as the opening day starter. The UCLA product picked up the victory as he tossed seven hitless innings, issuing just one walk and striking out seven hitters. In his second start the right-hander once again shut out the opponent tossing six scoreless innings. Five more starts, and Janssen was 4-0 with a 1.37 ERA in seven games. He had issued just four walks in forty-six innings, and had opponents hitting .174 off him.
Janssen made his first start with Dunedin of the Florida State League on May 14, and continued pitching well. He allowed one earned run or less in each of his first six starts in the FSL and posted a 4-0 record with a 1.18 ERA in six starts with Dunedin through June 9. Janssen had four more starts left with Dunedin and received a promotion to Double-A on July 5. He finished 6-1 with a 2.26 ERA with Dunedin.
On July 10, Janssen made his first start with New Hampshire, and to nobody's surprise he threw seven innings of scoreless ball against the Portland Seadogs - the leagues top hitting team. The 24-year-old suffered a slight setback during his second start of the season as he was hit in the right hand by a line drive, but missed just ten days. Overall Janssen made nine starts with New Hampshire and went 3-3 with a 2.93 ERA. In forty-three innings he issued just four walks, and recorded forty-seven strikeouts. The bottom line was that Janssen proved he can locate his pitches at that level and throw all his pitches for strikes.
The LIVE CHAT will take place on the InsideTheDome.com Message Board
