TWISP Notes #16

December 10, 1988

Pitcher-of-the-Month honors for April went this week to San Francisco’s Bob Knepper and Milwaukee’s Mike Caldwell. Caldwell (4-1, 1.43 ERA for April) had five complete games and three shutouts, and also threw Statis Pro’s first one-hitter, against Boston April 26th. Knepper also concluded the previous month with a 4-1 mark, and topped the majors with an incredible 0.49 earned run average.

Atlanta, hoping to bolster an overwhelmed pitching staff, today sent starting pitcher Tommy Boggs to their International League club in Richmond and called up pitcher Larry McWilliams to fill the fourth spot in the starting rotation. Boggs was 1-5 with a 5.81 ERA in seven appearances. McWilliams will make his first start May 13th against the Expos…
