Several former Longhorns had a disappointing start to the Major League Baseball season while others fared better.
San Francisco’s Brandon Belt and Milwaukee’s Corey Knebel both had solid starts to the season. Belt hit 3 home runs, including a grand slam, and had 7 RBI to open up the season. Knebel pitched 3.2 innings of scoreless baseball out of the bullpen for the Brewers.
Meanwhile, two others are on the DL and one got demoted.
Huston Street started the season on the 10-day disabled list for the Los Angeles Angels and the Toronto Blue Jays placed J.P. Howell on the 10-day disabled list on April 9 with left shoulder discomfort. The Milwaukee Brewers demoted Taylor Jungmann to Double-A Biloxi on April 6.
