Sean's one sentence analysis:
Another small college senior with good peripheral numbers, but played well against the big boys in the College Collegiate League last summer.
Thoughts from the community:
"Mirowski cashed in on an 11-2 record as a starter for NAIA stalwart Oklahoma Baptist Univ. He averaged nearly a K per IP and had a 2.78:1 BB/K ratio, but both numbers fell while working in relief for Auburn. Whether that's a factor of fatigue or hitting his ceiling remains to be seen, but he pitched well in one of the premier collegiate wood-bat leagues (CCL) the summer prior so he may still stick with the organization in 2012." - Luke Erickson, Nationals Prospects (@nats_prospects)
Previous analysis and notes:
Mirowski is a senior from a small college that put up great K and BB numbers. He'll sign, there's little risk and there's a chance he continues to put up great K and BB numbers.
From Andrew of Summer Ball, 1/11/11: "My next top performer from the 2010 summer season is Richie Mirowski of the SLO Rattlers...this past Spring, Richie went 3-1, and had a great era of 2.14 in 43 innings pitched. He also fanned 55 batters during the season. Richie spent the summer of 2009 pitching for the SLO Rattlers, where he was an All-Star. He returned to the Rattlers for the 2010 summer season, and he didn't disappoint his fans with his performance either. While the California Collegiate League is filled with players from the "big schools", Richie proved that he could hang with them. He went 3-2, and had a league-low 1.54 era in 44 innings of work for the Rattlers. In 8 starts, he allowed just 38 hits and held opponents to a .230 batting average. He also had a great BB/K ratio of 10/53 this past summer."
Mirowski signed with the Nationals on June 16, 2011.
