What is Bryan Bullington up to?

This is what Bryan Bullington is up to.

This is why you don't call timeout

Call timeout on a former Ball State pitcher? That's a beanin'.

Now in his third year for the Hiroshima Carp, the former No. 1 overall MLB draft pick is 2-1 with a 1.45 ERA in five starts, striking out 23 batters compared to just five walks. And as the video demonstrates, Bullington struck this guy out too. He's only hit two batters this year — although this one doesn't count — but he did lead Nippon Professional Baseball in 2011 with 18 plunked hitters. Baseball-Reference's Japanese stats go back to 2007, and that's the most in a season since then.
