Re: Reds cut ties with some Minor Leaguers
This is a very informative thread. Thanks.
I have two questions. Is it uncommon for pitchers to add 2-3 MPH to their fastball in their early 20's? I would think that a large framed pitcher would have a better shot at doing so.
Second, I was disappointed in Alex Buchholz's season. I know he was injured early on, and then there is always the Sarasota factor. Still, there was little improvement during the last month of the season when I would have expected that he would be figuring the league out. Can you comment on any issues affecting his progress?
