Re: Wednesday August 21st Minor League Updates
3rd-round pick Mark Armstrong made his AZL Reds debut tonight. He pitched a 1-2-3 first, striking out one. Armstrong is 18 years old.
Scouting report on Armstrong:
Armstrong is a strong, athletic right-hander from just outside Buffalo. While his present stuff is good, it isn't as enticing as his upside of having three at least Major League-average offerings. Armstrong's fastball sits around 90 mph and he mixes in a hard, downer curveball and changeup. Scouts think he has the potential to improve thanks to clean mechanics and his 6-fooot-3, 200-pound frame. Despite playing football and hockey in addition to baseball and not having as much game experience as his Southern counterparts, Armstrong already earns high marks for his pitchability. He is committed to Pittsburgh.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
