26-year old lefty starting pitcher Dallas Braden has been awesome so far this season for the A’s. Braden has started 3 games for the A’s this season and he is 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP. Braden has really been aggressive in the strike zone as he has only walked 3 batters in 20 innings this season. He is also missing bats as he has 16 whiffs and he has only allowed 12 hits this year. The A’s are one of the surprise teams of baseball so far this season and Braden is a big part of that.
