In 12 outings (six starts) prior to the break, the 19-year-old right-hander posted a 3-1 record with a 3.29 ERA, a .255 batting average against along with a 5.9 K/9 mark. In three appearances (two starts) following the mid-season mark, Pipkin has struggled with a 0-1 record, a 27.00 ERA, a .478 batting average against while walking five batters in 3 2/3 frames.

He spent time talking to me, answering Nine Silly-ass Questions, sharing some thoughts on music, profanity and so much more.
