Minor Leagues: Flande A Find, Heating Up In Florida

Yesterday it was Mike Stutes. Today, here’s a new name for you: Yohan Flande.

Flande, 23, is a left-hander from the Dominican Republic who pitched two years in the Dominican summer league. After strong showings there, he was bumped to the Gulf Coast League, where he dominated with a 2.19 ERA last season. Now he’s in Clearwater, and he’s his current line: 18 IP, 0 ER, 12 H, 17 K, 6 BB. Yup, that’s a 0.00 ERA.

Obviously the K/BB rate isn’t Drabek-like, but it’s very good. And he’s too old for his level. But another couple starts should find him in AA Reading, where he’ll be greatly tested by the 21 and 22 year olds in the Eastern League. Hopefully they’ll see that … well … you don’t mess with the Yohan.
