Brendon Little struck out 2 but walked 2 in a scoreless first.

Eugene got 3 in the bottom of the first. Austin Filiere hit a 2-run HR.

Watching the game. It's good one. Assad has looked great with a tight slider and his mid-90s FB.

He's absolutely shut down Vancouver going 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB and 9 Ks.

McCloud has done a great job with the inroads into Mexico.

IIRC the scout that signed most of those guys - Sergio Hernandez - was recognized as the org's scout of the year in 2015 and/or 2016. He's scouted a nunber of guys who went on to perform well early and a few that even have high ceilings between Sepulveda, Paredes, Albertos, Assad, Carrera, Kevin Zamudio, and probably those couple ranked IFAs they signed this year.

I like what Javier Assad's done so far as a pro. Seems like he has some similarities physically to Rucker, but is closer to half a decade younger than not. Good on him to get out of the short season levels in two years, mostly as a teenager, with some competent looking numbers.

Had the good fortune to sit about right behind home plate last night in the 2nd row. Much like the final line shows, Little was incredibly inconsistent. His mechanics were all out of whack. He did manage to drift back into his proper form with men on base. He flashed some pretty impressive pitches, but also spent much of the first two innings (including warm-up pitches) spiking balls 10 feet in front of the plate. Obviously a work in progress. Can't wait to hear reports out of instructs.

Assad was a completely different story. The stadium gun was out of commission so I can't give you velocity readings, but there was no other pitcher in the game that had the glove pop that he did. His stuff was as impressive as the line showed. Looking forward to seeing him in full season ball.

Filiere and Jered Young swung the bat well. Amaya was incredibly spry behind the plate. He received the ball a lot better than I thought he would. He's another standout that will take time to develop, but he's exciting. He looked sluggish at the plate, however.

Also as a complete aside, my wife and I competed in the Carl's Jr burger making contest on the field. We had to wear the bun and run back and forth with "toppings" before belly flopping. Walked out of there with a free burger so we had that going for us, which is nice. Classic minor league fun.
