Clearwater (11-14) postponed. Alejandro Requena (1-1, 3.05) is scheduled to start Thursday. Kyle Young was scheduled to pitch on Friday, but has since been placed on the injury list. Perhaps newly promoted Colton Eastman gets the nod. Continue reading Threshers Recap – 5/1/2019
I visited the Complex today. There were 3 games being played, two against teams from the Detroit organization and one against a travelling team. I could only stay less than a couple hours before a recent injury started to bother me. I hadn’t been to the Complex in over a month and I spent a lot of time talking to old friends. Here’s what little I saw.
First, an Extended Spring Training Roster was available (2019 Extended Spring Training Roster).
I recorded who was playing with which coaching staff (Williamsport v. the GCL staffs) but I’m not ready to guess if these will become permanent assignments. Luke Miller hit a HR while I was talking to one security guard. I watched Jake Kinney pitch an inning. His FB was 88-91. He threw a slider and showed a CB on the last pitch I saw. I cut short a conversation with one of Clearwater’s finest when Jaylen Smith took the mound on Roberts. He pitched well. His FB range was 86-89. Curtis Mead came to bat while I was there and with a shift on purposely poked a ball through the 3-4 hole into RF. I got into a discussion with a scout from Baseball Prospectus. He told me that Kyle Glogoski was shipped to Lakewood. I haven’t seen the transaction, but I think he was charting during the Lakewood game. That’s all, intrasquads tomorrow, but it’s my 20th anniversary.
