I was completely disappointed with Ward last night. I had expected much, much more from him. He only hit 90 one time and was working mostly at 86 MPH or so and he had all sorts of control problems. He doesn't appear to hide the ball very well either, you can pick it up very early.
While he is tearing through A ball pretty well, I really have to question if he is going to be able to hold that type of domination as he advances. Based on the one outing I have seen, I'd say fat chance.
bummer. Nobody wants an A ball pitcher coming off of a bad outing. Sounds like now we'll have to keep him and trade somebody else.
