Arrieta vs. Rangers tonight

A lot of you out there will have split allegiances tonight when the Orioles and Rangers meet up in a battle of teams tied for the best record in the Majors.  Taking the mound for Baltimore will be former Horned Frog Jake Arrieta, now in his third season with the O's.  Personally, I hope Arrieta throws 6 or 7 strong innings, and then that the Rangers tear up the Baltimore bullpen worse than Chris Partlow beat up Michael and Bug's step dad.

Being that a lot of us will be watching Arrieta tonight, I figured it was as good a time as any to update everyone on what the former TCU players in the Major Leagues are doing so far this season:

-Jake Arrieta, Baltimore Orioles:
So far, Jake is 2-2 with 3.52 ERA in six starts.  He has struck out 33 batters, walked just 9 and held opposing hitters to a .209 batting average.  He's coming off of his best start of the season when he spread 5 hits, 9 strike outs and 0 walks over 8 scoreless innings against the Yankees in New York last Wednesday.

-Matt Carpenter, St. Louis Cardinals:
After earning a spot on the Redbirds' opening day roster due to his second consecutive strong spring, Carpenter has appeared in 27 of the team's 29 regular season games so far.  That includes 17 starts at first base and 2 in the outfield.  In 76 at-bats so far, he's hitting .263 with one home run and 14 runs batted in.  He's also hit 5 doubles and a triple.

-Andrew Cashner, San Diego Padres:
After having been a starter in his brief stint with the Cubs, Cashner was converted to the bullpen after being traded to San Diego this winter.  He opened the season as the set-up man, but not all has gone according to the plan for the Padres, who at 10-20 have the third-worst record in the bigs.  Closer Huston Street went down with a shoulder injury recently, so Cashner may have a chance to close a few games.  In 15 appearances this year, he has an ERA of 3.95, and has walked as many batters as he has struck out. 

-Scott Atchison, Boston Red Sox:
The Sox have had a rough go of it so far in 2012, but Atchison has been one of the few bright spots in the Boston 'pen.  He's thrown 20 innings in 13 appearances, and carries an ERA of 1.35.  He's held opposing hitters to a .197 batting average, and is currently on a scoreless streak of 8⅓ innings that stretches back to April 29th.
