Bobby Parnel may have started the season pitching extremely poorly but now he is red hot. In his last start Parnel got the win after going 7 strong innings allowing 2 runs on 5 hits. Parnel has received wins in all of his last 3 starts. His era might be a 5.27 but his last 3 starts might be an indication that he is on the fast track to the big leagues.
Jon Niese has had a good season with some high and low points. He has an era of 3.15 with 35 strikeouts, 16 more than Parnell. But in 2 of his last 3 games he has given up 4+ runs.
