Vincent Payne Video Recap

Payne had a strong start to his pro career in 2010.

Vincent Payne was selected in the 12th round of the 2010 draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates out of the JuCo ranks.  He signed quickly, and went to the Gulf Coast League, where he dominated with a 2.43 ERA in 37 innings, along with a 21:9 K/BB ratio.  At the end of the season he was moved up to State College, where he pitched 5 innings, with a 1.80 ERA and a 3:2 K/BB ratio.  This was all after Payne pitched 19 innings in the JuCo ranks, struggling with a 7.58 ERA, and an 18:22 K/BB ratio, making his success in the lower levels a surprise.
