Another inconsistent outing for Cortes

Missed the first inning of the game, but innings two and three consisted of a lot of pitches, some sharply hit grounders/liners, a deep flyout and a Ryan Harvey HR. It looked like Cortes was throwing up in the zone. The fourth inning was easily his best. Cortes threw a high percentage of off-speed pitches down or below the zone for swinging strikes and K'd the side 1-2-3. The fifth inning consisted of a walk and very weak single to the right side when the second basemen went to cover the bag on a hit-and-run. The sixth inning was a struggle as Cortes walked the bases loaded with two outs and was lifted for Chris Hayes. Cortes was visibly frustrated and when he got to the dugout, slammed his glove and hat into the bench. When I was able to check, the stadium reading had his fastball anywhere from 89-92 mph and off-speed anywhere from 75-80.

Some Major and Minor Thoughts

These are just random observations I've had so far this year. Some from the big league club, some from the minor leagues. Thus the incredibly creative and clever title. I know, I should probably do...

• The numbers haven't been there for Royals righty Daniel Cortes in the AFL, as he's posted a 7.84 ERA in six starts despite striking out a batter per inning. Still, there's a lot to like about the 21-year-old's potential. He's been touching up to 96 mph on my gun with late tail, coupling it with a hard high-70s curve with good depth. Cortes has good arm action, and the velocity is easy, but he's been leaving his fastball up and still needs to show he can command it on the corners of the plate. Cortes has been primarily a fastball/curveball guy, and the organization sent him to the AFL to concentrate more on throwing quality strikes with his changeup, and in scouting parlance, he's "flashed" a few solid ones. There's some sink and a good angle there, but it's just not consistent. Though he hasn't thrown it much in game action, he's also been toying with a slider to see whether that could be a usable third offering. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?entryID=3708560&name=grey_jason
