I have been stuck with the Thursday games this season. For my previews, I am going to look at scout-ish information for the major and minor league clubs. Stuff will probably be a little boring, but hopefully a little useful.
Velocity values (mph):
Shields (Kings of Kauffman go into detail on Shields first start)
He is throwing faster. Nice.
Luke is seeing a normal SP to RP velocity jump.
Santana (detail look at first start)
Some 1B speeds (time in seconds)
2013 (4/1, 7th inning): 4.4
He seems to have not lost or gained a step this off season.
2013: (4/3, 6th inning, 8th inning): 4.8, 4.7
Remember, Perez is slower than Frenchy.
Minor league games start this evening with the Omaha Chaser and NWA Naturals being shown on MiLB.com.
Omaha: Will Smith
NW Arkansas: Noel Arguelles
Notable prospects on each team
