Barry Enright Primer

Jim thought it'd be nice to have a little primer on Enright before he pitches, so here I am with the goods. More after the jump.

Barry Enright (born March 30th, 1986) was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2007 draft. He signed quickly, and played for three teams in 2007 (Yakima, South Bend, Visalia) where he threw 15 scoreless innings with 17 strikeouts and 5 walks. 

In 2008, Enright was assigned to HI-A Visalia, where he threw 164.1 innings. He posted a 4.44 ERA (3.52 FIP) with 143 strikeouts and 35 walks.  In 2009, Enright was assigned to AA Mobile, where he threw 156 innings and posted a 3.98 ERA with 103 strikeouts and 37 walks. He also had a .930 OPS(14 for 34 with 2 doubles and 2 walks).

Assigned to Mobile again, Enright has had an excellent season, posting a 2.88 ERA with 83 strikeouts against just 15 walks in 93.2 innings. At 5.53, Enright has the  best K:BB ratio of any pitcher in our organization.  He's continued his hitting as well, with a .973 OPS(7 for 25, but 6 of his hits were doubles, and the other one  was a homer)

Enright is typical of the class of pitchers the Diamondbacks like to draft. He's a college-trained  innings eater. He has an average but workable fastball that sits in around 89-92 and mixes in a slider, curveball, and changeup. He throws strikes, but relies on his defense to support him.

Hopefully Enright does well in his major league debut today, and I wish him the best of luck. You can find more articles on Dbacks prospects at my blog, Diamond(backs) in the Rough.
