    Dustin Moseley runs record to 5-1 with complete game victory

    SALT LAKE CITY – Salt Lake Bees starting pitcher Dustin Moseley showed the power of the ground ball on Sunday afternoon.

    Moseley recorded 15 ground-ball outs – with just four fly-ball outs – while pitching a complete game five-hitter as Salt Lake defeated Tacoma at Franklin Covey Field, 8-2.

    Moseley (5-1) became the first Pacific Coast League pitcher to reach five wins this season. After allowing four singles and a run in the first three innings, Moseley allowed one hit the rest of the way – a Todd Sears home run in the seventh inning.

    “Moseley mixed his pitches well and kept us off balance,” said Tacoma manager Dave Brundage. “He moved his fastball in and out, and he worked ahead in the count.”

    Moseley was a top prospect for the Cincinnati Reds when he was traded to the Los Angeles Angels for pitcher Ramon Ortiz prior to the 2005 season.

    Moseley struggled through shoulder problems for Salt Lake last season, but now that he is healthy he has emerged as a top starter in the PCL. He became the first Salt Lake pitcher to toss a nine-inning complete game since Chris Bootcheck in August 2004. Moseley threw 111 pitches, 70 for strikes.

    For a while, Tacoma starter Clint Nageotte (3-2) looked like he was going to match Moseley.

    Nageotte was perfect through two innings, but a leadoff walk opened the third. After a couple of singles, Reggie Willits lined a double to right field, scoring a pair of runs to give Salt Lake a 2-1 lead.

    Nageotte allowed three more runs in the fourth inning. Salt Lake slugger Dallas McPherson hit two home runs against Nageotte – solo shots in the fourth and fifth innings.

    “He left some breaking pitches in the zone when he was trying to bury the hitter,” said Brundage.

    McPherson has homered in each of the first three games of the series. The third baseman has hit eight home runs this season – five of them against Tacoma. McPherson is tied with Justin Leone of Portland for the league lead in home runs.

    Tacoma (16-12) now trails first-place Salt Lake (18-11) by 11/2 games in the PCL North.

    You know if he were with the Reds last season instead of having arm troubles his arm would have probably fallen off. Also remember that he has not made his MLB debut yet as well as the fact that LAA called up a AAA starter last week and it wasn't Dustin.

    Mosely might be doing well in AAA but I just cant see him projecting as anything good in the majors. He doesnt have the velocity anymore. Think Dave Williams in terms of velocity.

    one notable difference is that Williams is a FB pitcher while Moseley is a GB pitcher.

    Maybe we could get that McPherson guy and put him at first. He has zero future with the Angels because there is no place to play with the likes of Kotchman, Morales and Wood.

    now that is an intriguing thought. I thought he was supposed to be the future at 3rd originally??

    it was. The Reds could have a player that could play both. He is effectively blocked in Anaheim and at his age(25 soon to be 26) needs a change of scenery

    maybe they would take Cody Ross, or would you give up Denorfia for McPherson?

    I saw Moseley pitch here in Portland a few weeks ago. He lost that game. His fastball topped out at 88 during the first 3 or so innings and by the fourth it was at 83-4. His breaking stuff was in at around 75-78 so he is changing speeds and he does seem to keep the ball down. Neverthess, I'm just not sure he'll ever make it in the majors, at least as a starter. (I hope I'm wrong though)

    Another thing of note that I noticed when I saw him pitch is that Salt Lake City(Angels AAA team) plays some pretty good defense and has some good all around players. Howie Kendrick looked really good in particular.

    Why do you go after Mcpherson? We have Votto who should be ready soon and is coming out of his slump right now and on fire. He is back up to .294/.356/.479 with 7 doubles and 5 home runs. At third you have Edwin. Both are younger than is Mcpherson and have arguably better upside.

    Votto isn't considered that good of a prospect and certainly is not a sure thing. There is nothing remarkable at all in Votto's minor league numberss. He just gets attention because the system is devoid of position prospects.

    Dallas McPherson career Minor League Numbers:

    .308 BA/.395 OBP/.575 SLG- .970 OPS

    Since arriving from The Citadel in 2001, McPherson has played exactly one full minor league season in which his OPS finished under the 1.000 mark (2002- .808). More upside than that really doesn't exist. Unfortunately for McPherson, the Angels pretty much refuse to allow their best positional prospects any sort of learning curve at the MLB level. The result is a bad offense manned by old guys they can't quite will themselves to let go.

    Timing is perfect to grab McPherson. Plop him in at 1B and let him hit.

    Steel, I know his stats, I have actually been a big fan of his for a while, but I guess I addressed my question wrong. If you do go after and get him, what do you do with Votto? Hang him out there for a trade? Let him sit around and rot?

    I think Votto should spend next year in Louisville, so that gives McPherson two years to prove he's worthy of being the future guy. If you can get McPherson for cheap, then why not?

    Well that makes some sense, but I would think lots of teams have been calling on him. He is good and he is still with the Angels. Maybe they want way to much in return for him and that is why he is still there?
