Took in a doubleheader on the 30th and have more notes from the Scottsdale @ Peoria game then the Surprise @ Salt River game. Below is what I saw:
RHP Robert Cassevah (Angels) - Still is what he is, working with a plus sinking FB at 89-93, up to 94 and showed 2 below avg secondaries in his CT/SL and splitter.
LHP Robbie Erlin (Padres) - First look at the small, athletic left hander and he is a significantly better fit for Petco then Texas, as he is a true finesse lefty without a plus pitch. He features a solid avg FB at 88-90, up to 92, and paired it with 3 other offspeed pitches, a CH at 79-80 that had gd armspeed and was an above avg weak contact pitch, a SL at 78-81 that was solid avg and a big downer CB w/ gd spin at 71-77 that isn't a strikeout pitch. Repeatable delivery w/ feel for moving the FB around, he profiles as a back end starter. He gets high marks for pitchability and will throw any pitch in any count. Solid lefty.
RHP Michael Tonkin (Twins) - First look at the XL tall, athletic righty who comes at hitters from a L 3/4. He came at them with a moving FB at 93-95 that had above avg life and paired it with a SL that he threw once and didn't have a lot of break to it. Has been throwing the ball well here, so hope to catch him again.
OF Slade Heathcott (Yankees) - Swung a real good bat on this day, going 4-5 with 2 triples. He features a line drive oriented approach with the ability to hit gap to gap. Getting a clearer look at him and he profiles as a solid avg regular.
RHP Trey Haley (Indians) - Not as electric the last time I saw him, but was 94-96 with life and paired it with a hammer CB at 85-86 when he didn't get around it. Big time stuff.
RHP Victor Black (Pirates) - Black was the same guy I have seen, electric stuff (96-98 w/ FB, 83-84 w/ power CB) but no command.
From the night game, got looks at 2 pitchers I hadn't seen:
RHP Ryan Rodebaugh (Rangers) - 89-91 w/ an avg SL at 81-83. Pretty conventional righty reliever profiles as org depth from this look.
RHP Malcolm Culver (Royals) - 90-94 w/ run and sink and paired it with a short SL at 80 and a CH with a little fade at 82. He got pissed after giving up the go ahead HR and got up to 94 at that point. He piques my interest a bit.
