26-year old lefty reliever/starter Cory Luebke came into this season as the Padres’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America. He started the season in the bullpen and he pitched well. But he has been moved into the starting rotation recently and he has been brilliant. Luebke is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.45 WHIP in his first two starts of the 2011 season (his last two games). Luebke only has given up 3 hits and 2 walks in 11 innings in his first two starts of the year and he has 13 whiffs as he has been downright nasty. Luebke has now pitched in 31 games (2 starts) overall for the Padres this year and he is 2-2 with a 2.52 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP. He has only given up 27 hits in his first 50 innings this year and he has 56 whiffs, which shows how nasty he has been this year. The future looks really bright for Cory Luebke.
