2017

The speed at which Bowman acclimated to the majors came as a pleasant surprise as he was coming off a subpar go-around at Triple-A Memphis in 2015. While his 3.46 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 18.5 percent strikeout rate may not jump off the page, Bowman was excellent at retiring batters via the groundball -- he rounded out the season with a 4.00 GB/FB ratio. As he continued to progress, St. Louis opted to use Bowman more frequently in high-leverage situations. He picked up eight holds over his last 15 appearances and finished the season with 13, which was good for third on the team. Heading into his second season, Bowman will look to add something to his strikeout rate and solidify a prominent role the bullpen.
