(Patrick Brewer did a good comparison of Miguel Diaz and Luis Perdomo the other day over at EVT, but what the heck. I’ve got a streak to protect here.)

It’s really easy to compare Luis Perdomo and Miguel Diaz. Both are right handers of similar size, both are Rule 5 picks plucked out of A-ball, and both struggled big time upon entering the major leagues. Take a look at how similar Perdomo and Diaz performed through May of their rookie seasons:

Player Innings Hits ERA HR/9 K% BB%
Perdomo 26 47 10.04 1.4 14.8 12.0
Diaz 22 2/3 21 7.15 2.0 16.0 12.0

Perdomo was actually worse, somehow, but if you just focus on the peripherals, they’re really similar. Let’s back up a bit further and compare these guys in the minors:

Player Innings Start % ERA HR/9 K% BB%
Perdomo 316 92.4 4.10 0.5 19.4 6.7
Diaz 236 48.6 3.61 0.4 22.0 8.9

The numbers are close again. Both guys suppressed homers while posting solid strikeout and walk numbers. Important to note that Perdomo was almost exclusively a starter in the minors, whereas only about half of Diaz’s appearances came as a starter. Also, Perdomo was pushed a bit more rapidly through the minors, so more of his performance came against slightly tougher competition. Still, similar profile.

In the second inning, Javier Baez singled to score Anthony Rizzo and Willson Contreras was thrown out trying to take third base for the third out. Winning pitcher Brad Hand and Brandon Maurer pitched two perfect innings of relief.

Jake Arrieta (5-4, 4.60) allowed one run on five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in six innings pitched. Ryan Schimpf hit a solo home run in the second inning. In the eighth inning, Yangervis Solarte‘s ground ball drove in Franchy Cordero, who had tripled, with the go-ahead run.
