Henry Werland, Started Strong - 11

Originally published June 30, 2015
Henry Werland started this June 1991 outing strong. He ended the outing with a win, according to The Savannah Morning News.

Werland pitched three perfect innings before giving up his first hit, The Morning News wrote. He then left after five innings with a 1-0 lead. His Macon Brave relievers then went on to complete the seven-inning win and shutout.

Werland had that start in his second season as a pro. It was also his last season. He played just those two years, never making AA.

Werland's career began in 1990, signed by the Braves as a free agent out of the University of Texas at Austin.

He played his first season at rookie Pulaski. He got 14 outings, 10 starts. He went 5-2, with a 2.94 ERA. He picked up his fifth win in the home finale, a 13-1 Pulaski victory.

Werland moved to single-A Macon and high-A Durham for 1991. He played in 18 games, starting 16 at Macon. He went 10-3 there, with a 3.12 ERA.

At high-A Durham, he pitched even better. In eight outings, seven starts, Werland put up a 1.98 ERA and a 5-2 record. He started off with a loss in late July. Despite his seeming success, that second season was Werland's final season as a pro.
