PITTSBURGH (AP) - Mitch Keller is eager to prove his rocky rookie season in the big leagues was just a fluke.

The highly touted Pittsburgh Pirates pitching prospect went 1-5 with a 7.13 ERA in 2019.

While Keller was discouraged by the numbers, the analytics indicated Keller was a victim of bad luck at times.

Keller spent the break provided by the COVID-19 shutdown diving deeper into analytics hoping to become more efficient.

He says he’s trying to find a way to mesh the information available to him with the talent that helped him rise through the minors quickly.
