Also he's just not talked about enough, angel ventura could be a real player for the Brewers. Guy throws heat and gets outs, wish his K rate was higher, but I could end up in Milwaukee this season yet

I liked zach brown out of Kentucky, felt like he and Braden Webb and Corbin burnes would all be fast movers. Burnes has been amazing and brown had been awful, but lately he has really turned it around. Tonight he just lowered his ERA to 3.50 and he's put together a solid string of starts. One to watch!

Brown was injured early in the season - thus the gap from April 6th to May 11th and only 2-inning stints May 11th and 16th, and thus why he was "awful".

Excluding those first three outings, his ERA has been 3.00.



He's been pretty darn good even with those outings. For a guy who was pegged as almost certainly moving to the pen almost immediately, he has done very well.

I was under the impression that he was a more of a right handed finesse pitcher.

I haven't heard his velo for 2 years, but in Appleton he was touchin 97 on occasion. Maybe he's pulled that back. I think his lack of Ks gives him a stats profile that looks like a finesse pitcher

Ventura has struck me as a Peralta later in milb career. Effective but K rates dropped off. Think they are similar build if I remember right. Velocity pitchers but may be like Wily with not much movement on it.

Anyone taking notice of the jump Pierre is taking this season?! That's really good to see!

Michael Choice. A former first round pick of Oakland, also the A's minor league player of the year in 2013. Currently at Biloxi. Pulling for him to succeed. Another Stearns pick up off the scrap heap perhaps.

That seems high from what I've heard about Angel in the past. Was it the stadium gun?

SBNationhad him at this (also 2 years ago)

On Thursday, Ventura worked at 90-92 while topping out at 94.

That was my perception of him. I'd be surprised if he was topping at 97.

And That has always been pretty high on Ventura in the Link Reports. Perhaps he has more recent info?

Yes kn the stadium, which you have to take with a grain of salt. Harder has never hit 90 on the gun all three times I've watched him, yet he's over 95 right now at miller park. And YES Pierre fjnally seems to be living up to the bonus pedigree, Mallen as well. McAllen has been slightly more consistent, but I was under the impression that Pierre had the higher ceiling and defensive profile, hopefully the powers comes too!
