    Yeah, he's hitting .414/.553/.552 in his last 10 games... Mostly singles, but also 9 BB's to 7 K's.

    It doesn't? Why? Because since that season he has struggled? That's not relevant at all to the argument I'm making.

    They put him in Fort Myers after that draft because of his perceived...

    This year sure. But I consider Burdi to be a different type of prospect, and should be treated as such. He's a pure reliever, and has big-league stuff right now.

    (for reference about starting...

    I'm a bit disappointed Burdi was sent to CR, but as you say, I don't expect he'll be there long if he shows dominance right out of the gate.

    I'd hope they would take the same approach at Fort...

    Good to see Nate Roberts back! He's always one of my favorite guys to follow when he's playing. Wish there was something they could pin down for the reasons he's always been hurt. He's definitely...

    Well, I think the reason player's don't, is that most of the guys who these shifts are done for are guys like Dunn, who's offensive game is built around their power.

    If they take this...

    Definitely. Though Berrios might not be first in the promotion pecking order.

    But the Twins always talk about consistency with pitchers when determining promotions, so if Berrios hasn't been...

    Because he was cruising.

    9, 13, 12, 21, 9, 13, 13, 13, 17.

    That's how many pitches he threw per inning. That is by no metric you could possibly think of, a "harsh" workload. If he had...

    "Stewart was asked if the doctor visit is indicative of problems with his diabetes:

    “No, no, no. It's just you're supposed to see a doctor every three months now and I haven't seen one since...

    Van Steensel is getting a second chance with the organization, this time as a reliever. He has definitely looked good so far!
  16. Just a lot of pitches early in the game. It's my...

    Just a lot of pitches early in the game. It's my opinion a lot of pitches per inning, is much worse than high pitch counts for a game. "Chased" probably would have been a much better word, haha....

    Alex Wimmers opened in Fort Myers.

    I'd be really disappointed with the Twins if Burdi is sent to E-town or Cedar Rapids to start. He needs to be put straight to Fort Myers, at a minimum. Personally, I'd shove him in AA right away. ...

    Almost always the number thrown out is the guys "peak." Rarely is it where they "sit."

    Berrios will sit low low-to-mid 90's, but obviously can crank it up a bit if he wants to as shown here. I...

    I'd maybe put Dozier in the 3-hole, but not cleanup. There is a psychological factor here as well. Even if a guy is playing "loose," it's a different approach batting fourth than second like he...

    Sure, but this is also a pitch that is not even close to necessary to have success as a RP/Closer, especially when big heat is paired with a wipeout slider coming in hot as well. Examples exist...

    I know, just saying what I'd do! But Burdi is also a different case. He's not a starter and was universally touted as the most MLB-ready player of the draft, with a lot of those same people saying...
