Tressler Making Remarkable Transition

Aaron Tressler was not supposed to be in this role. When the 24 year old right hander broke camp with the Lansing Lugnuts in April, it was to continue his development as a reliever. However, when an injury arose to A.J. Wideman, Tressler was asked to be the guy to step into a starter's role, something that he had not done since his college days at Penn State.

"Unfortunately (A.J.) Wideman got hurt and I got an opportunity," stated Tressler. Tressler has taken the ball and ran with it since entering the rotation. In 22 appearances this season, Tressler has an 8-4 record and has a team low ERA of 1.90. Amazingly enough, the ERA is eerily close to Tressler's 2.06 mark from last year when he joined the Lugnuts rotation at the midway point of the season... Recommended Stories
