    Fairel: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 11 K

    This is his third double digit strikeout performance in his last five starts.

    I know its still early but I think Fairel is way too much for the Low A hitters.

    Just got back from the Bats - Bulls game. I got there late but only several hard hit balls off of Homer that I saw. Unfortunately, two went out of the park. Didn't see any obvious concentration problems. Velocity was great - would have to go to my toes to count the number of times he hit 95 or 96 on the gun, and even saw 98 on two pitches, one for a 3rd out strikeout with runner on third base. Seemd to have all his pitches working. Overall pretty good tonight - really fooled a lot of Bulls batters.

    Fairel now has a ratio of 16 walks to 49 K. Can anybody tell me what sort of pitches he throws, and what the velocity and movement is on them?

    Is that now 4 or 5 times they have struck out the side this game?

    From snooping around on the web a little it is posted that he throws 87-89. So he may touch 90. I have also seen that his change up is his strike out pitch and that he relays on control. I have read someone comparing him to Matt Maloney. It would appear that he is more finesse than power. (not that there's anything wrong with that) I have never seen him pitch so take the preceding with a grain of salt.

    Was Fariel a HS pitcher headed for UF? If so, I think there's a chance he adds a couple more MPH over the next couple of years.

    Fairel is actually 21 already (22 in July). He pitched at FSU. He's 6'3" 203 lbs. according to milb.com, so he has a good pitcher's frame.
