    Donnie Joseph

    Sporting a 1.06 ERA with 29 K's in 17 IP at Lynchburg.

    Before that he posted an 0.78 ERA with 40 K's in 23 IP at Dayton.

    He has yet to give up a HR.

    Why isn't this guy being fast tracked?

    22 year old lefty with obviously good stuff. He should be promoted to double AA after the AS game in my opinion. Clearly he's proven himself at single A and high A ball.

    To work on specific things, so he can be ready to get out major league hitters quicker.

    Tom Brown seems to be the guy who is teaching everyone their cut fastball. Soto has been the go to guy for the change up. Not sure who the 'slider' guy is.

    You know, that brings up an excellent point. Tom Brown seems to be their real pitching guru of the minor leagues. He's the guy who last year transformed Ondrusek from nobody to somebody. He may have done the same for Del Rosario, although I'm less certain of that. That could be why Joseph is still in Lynchburg. They might simply want him to spend more time with Tom Brown.

    Mario Soto gets a lot of the credit for helping with Del Rosario.

    Just Wait til Joseph gets to Carolina and learns that Cut Fastball to throw RH. *shudders*
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Joseph rumored to be part of a Heisy for Marmol trade.

    Stay tuned.

    I hope not.

    If by rumored, you mean made up by someone who doesn't get paid, then sure.

    Can somebody give a scouting report on Joseph in terms of velocity/repertoire?

    Joseph reminds me of Zach Stewart. Pitcher picked in the third round out of college. Has good stuff and is putting up dominating numbers in the minors.
