    Kevin Russo, nothing more than a super utility player right? Right-hander off the bench?

    this is sort of related but that kid tazawa from japan wasn’t selected in their draft so hes now free to sign with an american club. Abe claims that he can hit 97 but i think thats a little overblown. I think he can hit 94 or 95 and sits in the 91-92 range. At least thats what it says on the site that follows japanese baseball whose address escapes me. Basically hes a 22 yr old releiver who throws 91-92. Pass

      Not exactly. He is just as raw as anyone coming out of high school and maybe a little more advanced. He is basically a person that you would draft nothing like someone who would just join the ML team. Probably start at A and advance to at least AA in teh first year. He isn’t like established so they could fix him.

        At 22 he would be a senior in college so most of the physical development would be finished. They could tweak his delivery and add a pitch but theres not a whole lot of projection. He is what he is.

    When does Brack start again

      Should be soon, tomorrow or the next day. There were some rainouts that messed with the schedule over the weekend, so the rotation is a bit out of whack right now.
