Robbie Weinhardt more successful second time around

Every weekday between now and mid-November, we'll be looking closer at a Tigers player. For more information on the series, including a schedule, please check this post out.

Robbie Weinhardt didn't exactly have the best start to his major league career. His entire first set of games started off OK, but he struggled to go more than a few games at a time without allowing any runs to score. By August, he couldn't strike out anyone and batters were just teeing off. Fourteen runs -- thirteen earned -- scored during just six innings on the mound. The Tigers sent him to Toledo on Aug. 20.

Fortunately, after a short stay back in the minor leagues, he settled in when he returned to the team in September and gave up just three runs  while pitching 11.2 innings from Sept. 1 until the end of the year. He also struck out 10 and walked just two during that period.

Hopefully we can just chalk the first appearances up to some level of nerves and the Weinhardt to be expected in the future looked more like the one who threw in the final month of the season. But we just haven't enough games to go on either way yet.


I'm going to totally leave out what 2010 tells us about 2011, because 29 innings is just not enough to tell us much of anything.
