I actually would sorta like to see Rollie Lacy get the bump up if he continues pitching well, and let Abbott and others develop in South Bend a bit longer. I still wonder if Lacy might be better off in the pen utilizing the 2 seamer with his slider, but he's showing well enough. The arms in South Bend are performing well enough that they could force some decisions to be made on upper level guys if they keep performing.

I'm not entirely convinced Lacy's stuff plays well at the higher levels as a starter (strikes me as a middle relief arsenal), unless that slider is much better than anticipated, but I wouldn't be surprised if he just continues to mow down Low A kids. Will be interesting what the decision-making is for some of these guys when "bump" time comes. Assuming some of the Low A guys continue to perform well, I'd like to push some of the college guys up and challenge them, while giving time to the younger guys.

Swarmer threw 4 pitches in the 7th before coming out of the game. After the 3rd pitch, with his arm down by his side, he lightly shook it like you might if you were experiencing either some numbness or some tightness. He did the same after the 4th pitch. The manager then signaled for the catcher, PJ HIggins, to go out to the mound. After a brief conversation, Higgins motioned for the manager and trainer to come to the mound. They did. The trainer never examined Swarmer's arm. Didn't even touch him, actually. He was just asking him questions and Swarmer was answering. Matt never appeared to be in any pain. He walked off the field chatting calmly with the trainer. He showed no emotion, certainly didn't seem upset or even disappointed.

Can't draw any conclusions from any of that, but there ya go...

I'll take it! Especially considering I always assume blown UCL or labrum until I'm told otherwise. That way you aren't disappointed any further.

I'm glad I don't hate his delivery. The combo of health, spin, and better than expected control and command keep me optimistic about Lange's summer velocity.

It was just one game, but his change was consistent throughout. It wasn't just a few good ones. Every one he threw that night looked great. I was like,"where'd this come from?!"

Cool. Are you getting that info from somewhere other than the currently listed pitcher for that game on milb's scoreboard?

I believe he got it from the radio broadcast.

On Thursday, the pitching parade continued as Matt Swarmer went 6 scoreless with 7 Ks before leaving in the 7th with a tired arm. He should not miss a start.
