Creath pitched in Batavia and Quad Cities last season with some mixed success. He completed the season with a 4-5 combined record with a 3.38 ERA. He appeared in 37 games without a start. In 50 innings he gave up 44 hits and only one home run and walked 22 while fanning 64. This is a good ratio and should project well for a reliever. Opponents batted .234 against him in 2012.
Many times overall record is not a concern in the minor leagues, particularly with a relief pitcher. His ability to keep people off base will bode well for him. (FULL STATS HERE) Creath is 6’3” 200 lbs and throws right handed and bats right handed. He is from California and attended Embry-Riddle College.
He is projected to start the season at Class A Peoria Chiefs in 2013.
