    It's beautiful to watch. K rate and BB rate are trending in the right directions.

    Since he's been back in AA, he has a 17.5% BB rate, and a 10% K rate. A nice little 9 game stretch he's on.

    Eddy O should definitely be on that list.

    They put Pannone at #21, lets be honest these two guys are lottery tickets but you really couldn't expect more.


    Scouting grades: Fastball: 50 | Curveball: 55 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 55 | Overall: 45
    A 33rd-round pick by the Cubs in 2012 out of the Rhode Island prep ranks, Pannone was a two-way player at the JC of Southern Nevada in 2013 before signing with the Indians for $120,000 as a ninth-rounder. He took off after making some delivery adjustments last year, and then continued to climb the ladder in 2017, moving up to Double-A and becoming an Eastern League All-Star. Pannone's progress caught the eye of the Blue Jays, who acquired him and second baseman Samad Taylor for Joe Smith at the Trade Deadline.

    Pannone can run his fastball up to 92-93 mph but usually sits more in the 88-91 mph range. Though not overpowering, Pannone's heater plays above its velocity on account of his deception, allowing him to induce whiffs inside the zone. He has good feel for his curveball, showing the ability to throw it for a strike and also bury it in the dirt when vying for whiffs, and he's adept at adding and subtracting with the pitch as needed. His changeup gives him a third average-or-better offering, albeit one he uses sparingly, and he has good command of all three pitches.

    Because he lacks a plus pitch and thrives based on deception, Pannone will have to prove himself at each level. He has handled every challenge so far, and while he's not a top-tier prospect, the left-hander has a legitimate floor as a backend starter in the Major Leagues.

    I'll take that any day of the week as the return for Joe Smith.

    Bo...4-4 with a walk...4 runs, double and 2 stolen bases

    Vlad...2-4 with a walk...1 run, 3 RBIs

    Combined they had 3 infield singles...not sure how this keeps happening unless the scorers are way too generous down there

    After seeing his backstory, Rowley seems like an easy guy to root for. Seems like he deserves a look in Sept. if he continues to produce in Buffalo.

    Bo had 2 SBs, 18 on the season now. The dude is a beast, back to hitting .400.

    No kidding. For a guy who was brought in with no thought of being anything other than rookie ball roster filler, the fact that he's still a starter, at AAA, after serving 2 years in the armed forces and with all that development time lost... is amazing.

    And both SB were 3rd base. He's got some pretty good speed for someone who was often referred to as kinda stocky.

    Follows up an 0 for 6 showing with 4 for 4 and a walk to get back to .400.

    Kid is an absolute monster.

    Vlady Jr. with a nice game too, he seems to be starting to heat back up. Gotta love this!

    Anyone know much about this Ryan Gold kid in Bluefield? Catcher hitting around .300 with a .370OBP and is 19years old which seems age appropriate for the level. He seems to have a high BABIP, so I can't figure out if he's been lucky in his first two seasons or he's just squaring up the ball for hard singles. Anyone know anything about his defense and if he could be a legit prospect?

    I think it's too early to tell. I think there's some talent in there with Gold, but I don't put much credence in what a player does until he gets to full season ball.
