Olson out of Control
Garrett Olson got his fourth start of the season and his struggles with his control continued. He threw less than 50% of his pitches for strikes (36 of 74) and last only 2 2/3 innings. He walked 4 and struck out only one, brining his total to 18 BB in 18 1/3 innings so far this season. It's a very small number of innings, too small to draw conclusions from, but the lack of control from a guy who didn't have those types of problems in the minors is discouraging.
