I know there’s been some clamoring for more info on Quad Cities pitcher Scott Schneider who is off to a great start with 15Ks and 0 BBs in 14 innings. Steve Batterson has a writeup on Schneider that touches on his offseason regimen as well as his college days.
Quad Cities is going to have it’s game broadcast on the MLB Network on Monday, May 3rd at 11am. By my tally, that should be a Joe Kelly/David Calhoun start. I hope that MLBN sends some of their own camera crews there. When I watched some of Steven Strasburg’s first start at AA on ESPNews, the camera angles were absolutely awful. I’m partial to the CF camera during every AB. Until the ball is hit, that’s really the only view I care much about.
Brian Walton touches on some of the top pitchers in the system at the Globe-Democrat. Lance Lynn continues to look overrated to me in most rankings. (FR rankings here.) Adam Ottavino is one I might have been a bit too down on as the early outings for Ott in spring training and the regular season have been quite positive.
