Biggest disappointment: Lucas Harrell
This one was a tough choice — because there have been so many. I could have gone with Philip Humber because he was so incredibly ineffective after getting off to a nice start in his first three games. Brett Wallace also comes to mind. But he has shown signs of life lately.
After a breakout season in 2012 much was expected from Harrell in 2013. Harrell has great stuff and there was no reason to believe that 2012 was a fluke. But, despite a few good starts here and there, the 28-year old has struggled mightily. His ERA is up more tha a run from last year and an inflated WHIP has led to a 5-8 record at the halfway point.
