Hernandez struck out 4 in 2 with 2 BBs if anyone is curious. I really look forward to this group of pitchers in Eugene hitting full season ball. Just like this wave of arms much better than the first (which doesn't mean much, no one's a true standout yet).
Eugene pitchers that should see full season ball next year:
Kellogg - 6'5" LHSP, 88-91 on the fastball, 93 peak, improved his curveball in his last year at ASU, good changeup
Twomey - 6'3" LHSP, 88-92, has hit at least 94 if not 95 in college, good changeup, needs a breaking ball
Morrison - Carlos Villanueva/Shaun Marcum kind of arm if things go well, I think. 87-91, uses his secondaries.
Steele - Listed 6'2" lefty that looks more like 6', solid build, 89-91 t93, confident, aggressive, pitches up and looks to get hitters to change his breaking ball. I think he's a reliever similar to former Pirates LHRP Justin Wilson.
de la Cruz - I comp him to Ivan Nova of the Yankees. 89-93 now, hoping for more. Good curveball at it's best.
Sands - Some size, but I saw him 86-91 with bad spin. Bonus baby is still healthy, young, and LH so infinity chances.
Paulino - Might be the hardest thrower in the group. 6'2" long and lean 20 YO LHP also has a slider and a changeup. More of a prospect than I think gets acknowledged, arguably the most interesting between him, Sands, and Steele as a SP.
Brink - Averaged sized RHRP with long limbs and an athletic build, good breaking ball, can hit 96.
Aruajo and Efreuga are performing well, but I don't know who they are. Jared Cheek had a good college career, but I don't know much about him either.
