Michael Wacha

Michael Wacha, pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals was named MVP of NLCS.  Normally I’d post his career stats here but he’s a rookie so there’s just 2013.  Here’s his 2013:

Rank WAA BA/IP OBP/ERA PA/G RBI/W R/L Name_Tm BAT/PITCH
123 1.7 64.7 2.78 15 4 1 Michael_Wacha_SLN PITCH

Notice how few games and innings pitched. He spent most the year in the minors here.

Rank WAA BA/IP OBP/ERA PA/G RBI/W R/L Name_Tm BAT/PITCH
3 3.7 85.0 2.65 15 5 3 Michael_Wacha_Memphis_Redbirds_SLN_pcl PITCH

PCL is Pacific Coast League which is AAA.  He was ranked 3rd in the pcl league amongst pitchers  in 2013.  I do not have complete integrity checks on minor league stats so these numbers are preliminary.  Where do the Cardinals find these people?
