Part of the return for Khris Davis from Oakland, along with catcher Jacob Nottingham, Derby gets his first taste of big-league camp. Like most pitchers, he didn’t put up good numbers at Colorado Springs (and is probably happy Milwaukee’s Triple-A team is now in San Antonio), recording a 4.49 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 118 1/3 innings with 96 strikeouts. Derby, who turns 25 in late February, is likely in camp for the innings but maybe as an audition for later in the year. Milwaukee did think enough of Derby to send him to the Arizona Fall League. In case you were wondering, his real name is Bowdien Henry Asa Derby.
