In those two starts he threw a total of six scoreless innings and allowed just one hit, walked one while striking out ten batters.

Since joining the Indians organization he is 0-0 with a 2.31 ERA in four starts having allowed five hits, three walks, and piling up 18 strikeouts in 11.2 innings. He is on a three inning or 50 pitch count every outing, whichever comes first, and this restriction will carry through until the end of the season.
