  1. i was at the reading game last night and was impressed by rossman. he was at 97 and blowing away the batters but also showed some good off speed pitches. muzziotti and rojas also looked capable. rojas still needs to improve his plate discipline. he is an out of the zone chaser. morales has a great slider but erratic control. i have tickets for sunday but a lot of family stuff may prevent me from going.

  2. I guess I’m just gonna lead the Andrew Schultz hype train. He got back on track last night after having a few walks in his previous 2 innings.

    That puts his numbers since May 1 to 19IP, 3 ER, 34 Ks and 7 BBs. I hope he gets a call to Reading soon.

  3. Might be a sleeper for the MLB but watch LH Taylor Lehman, he had – 2 perfect IP – 2 K’s – 23 pitches – 15 strikes ( FB, slider, curve – top velo – 94 mph ) last night with Clearwater on a rehab assignment.

  4. Four youngsters in the FCL that intrigue me and may prove to be top prospects in a few years…Jordan Viars, Lou Helmig, Ricardo Perez and Yemal Flores.
    Flores has good size with power, and right now too much swing and miss, but maybe he will get that under control as he moves up the ladder.

    1. Flores has been so bad between this year and last in the DSL that I don’t really register him as much of a prospect. He hasn’t even had that many at-bats but the strikeouts are at such a high level that it sets off an alarm. K rate is near 50% right now.

      Viars, not sure. He’s been dealing with injuries so he mostly gets a pass but I hope he locks in soon and gets to Clearwater. I was high on him coming into the season.

  5. This is now 2 years in a row where Rojas struggles at his current level, gets promoted and then hits like crazy.
