    Haven't watched video on him before so I'll take your word for it. It just seems to be below 3/4 standard which is what all the scouting reports say. Maybe just that game or just the video angle.

    I have to agree that it's definitely a low 3/4 delivery. Vague terminology will result in differing scouting reports though.

    So is there any chance we see Borucki in September if Sanchez doesn't return? Just started AA which means he would be rushed. But he's also 23 so not that young and a late pick so it's not like the team has invested a lot in him. Might be good to try to catch lightning in a bottle while there is lightning to be caught like they did with Hutchison. He projects a 5 ERA/FIP which is not going to be any worse than Valdez or whatever scrap heap pitcher they use to fill out #5 otherwise.

    Well he is on the 40...

    Borucki should be starting in Toronto Wednesday night instead of Valdez.

    Nothing wrong with leaving him down in AA for the rest of the season. No reason to rush him. Let him start next year in AAA, and he's an injury away from being called up.

    It might be 3 weeks early. I would be concerned if his command was wonky. But throwing strikes has not been an issue for him. Its an agressive move but they had been extremely conservative with him through A-Ball.

    With Valdez going on the DL. Hes a logical move if they are considering him in September anyway. Otherwise we're just going to see another AAA scrub get hammered.

    I kinda get the feeling that we'll see Chris Rowley on Wednesday, with the recent Sportsnet feature on him and his decent results in AAA.

    I don't think he's on the 40 man but there are a number of names on there that could be bumped with no consequence.
