Here’s the affiliate scoreboard from MiLB.
Bonus coverage – Franklyn Kilome threw 40 pitches in a 3.0 inning appearance in XST. He threw 30 fastballs. Of the 30 fastballs, 25 were 93-94. He touched 95 three times, and 92 twice. This was against the Yankees and the same gun that showed that he touched 97 a couple weeks ago. He threw one pitch at 88, and 9 off-speed pitches at 77-80. These looked like curve balls. The 5 he threw at 77 were not near the strike zone.
Mitch Guellar came out to pitch next. Most of his pitches were 85-86 again. I think he may have touched 89-90 once. I went over to the other field to see if there was anything interesting there. The kids were lining balls all over the place in the one inning I watched. Guys like Arauz, Brito, Cuicas, Alastre, and others were making hard contact. Some of the new, young LA kids like Luis, Mendoza, Reyes, and Santana have some good size to them – a little taller and meatier than some of the kids from recent years.
