I'll be at the South Bend game tonight. Hopefully Assad can replicate the performance I saw from Alzolay earlier in the week.

Assad is 89-91 with his fastball. Struggling with his control.



And... he just gave up a bases-clearing double.

Man, I need to get out there sometime. Let me know the next time you decide to go Duke!

How does Miguel Amaya look? He's playing today right? They say he's pretty advanced defensively and I wonder how advanced his catching skills are. Like how does his pitcher framing/receiving look like from where you're sitting. It's kinda hard to tell during a game or from a bad angle. Is he good at blocking balls that bounce in the dirt/limiting wild pitches? Does he have a cannon for an arm like Contreras?

I think Miguel Amaya will be our #1 ranked prospect by the end of the year so I'm really curious about how he looks in person.

Amaya didn't really have many opportunities to show me anything. They didn't try to run on him, seeing as how it was a 10-run game most of the game. He had a single but that was it at the plate. He took some good hacks and was pretty patient. He fought off some pitches. He didn't really drive the ball or anything. He hit one ball hard but it was a routine ground out.

I didn't get a good read on his framing because I was right behind the plate. But he looked pretty athletic back there. I thought he did a nice job of receiving. He got low in his crouch and gave a good window for the ump. He looked smooth -- wasn't really stabbing at the ball from what I could see. But I couldn't tell much, other than that he looked pretty natural.

South Bend is really bad, though. Almost completely devoid of talent, other than Amaya.

Thanks!

Yeah, it kind of sucks when you go to a game to watch a highly-rated prospect(s) and they don't really do much or pitch poorly. I'm happy his receiving and actions looked good behind the plate. Were there any scouts or execs there? I know Jed and even Theo would occasionally go to games when they had that awesome group of Baez, Bryant, Soler and Almora. I doubt they go to very many games now.

There were quite a few scouts there last night. As for the Cubs' contingent, there were three really young guys and Brendon Little was sitting with a notebook next to the guy with the radar gun.
