This will be the fourth affiliate Teufel plays for this season; he’s also spent time with Binghamton, Savannah, and most recently Brooklyn. He’s split 30 appearances and 36 innings between those three teams, and the 27-year-old has thrown to a combined ERA of 3.25. Half of his appearance came in Eastern League action, and he struggled to a 4.26 ERA with 20 walks and 21 strikeouts in 19 innings pitched. He performed better in Savannah (2.79 ERA, 4 BB, 11 Ks in 9.2 IP) and was at his best on Coney Island (1.23 ERA, 1 BB, 9 Ks in 7.1 IP).
Congratulations to Shawn for heading up to High-A! I’m sure that makes Tim proud.
