Some insightful comments on various Lakewood BlueClaws on their blog today…(http://blog.blueclaws.com/) . Manager Mark Parent was interviewed and he commented on:
Jonathan Singleton: “Word is out on him, thats for sure…He is going to have to expand the zone or be more aggressive early in the count. They are going to pitch to him like a big leaguer rehabbing. He is a good hitter. His swing is simple and good. He will certainly adjust to whatever they are doing”.
Brody Colvin: ” He was already a big prospect but he has opened alot of eyes. When people get alot better in a short period of time, you never know how much further they can keep going.”
Matt Way: ” Way has come out where to, for me, he has pretty much done all he can do at this level. At his age, his stuff, we need to see if it transfers to a higher level. We have talked about that for a few weeks. There has to be an opening but he has been great.”
The Bullpen: “Wertz has stepped up. Lugo’s almost been perfect. Zeid, in my opinion, is a starter. Some people have the temperament where they can come in with other guys on base and even if they give it up, they can bounce a bad outing off him. He is a guy that has to prepare and work through his stuff. I think Zeid will do a great job as a starter.”
