How does he compare with Jerry Sowers?
Billings is up 2-0 in the 7th.
Keltavious Jones is 1-3 with a double.
Kevyn Feiner is 1-2 with a solo HR.
Enerio Del Rosario has gone 6 scoreless with 3 walks and 3 hits.
The problem is, at higher levels, batters are less likely to swing at breaking balls out of the zone. Most guys with fringe stuff are pinpoint control guys, like Kevin Slowey and Jeremy Sowers, and scouts even question their success at higher levels. For a guy with an 86-89 MPH fastball, even for a lefty, I think he’s going to need to really refine his control at the higher levels, or he’s going to hit a wall quickly.

The Chattanooga announcer was very impressed by the fact Maloney threw so many stikes. He talked about his curve and slider a lot , fastball he never gave a gun reading on so no idea how hard he was throwing.
Sowers's k/9 fell apart in AAA. If he can keep his k/9 above 8.00 in AAA that would be a good sign.
Guy Chattanooga just brought in to pitch is Dushen Ruzic - 6'8 277 from Australia. He's 25 , even bigger than Harang
Ruzic pitched last night too for the Lookouts. He pitched pretty well in Sarasota before his promotion.
Matt Maloney suffers a 1-0 loss in debut , but was very impressive. May have got a decent prospect for Lohse.
Sam Narron is Jerry's nephew
