Zack Von Rosenberg Video From Pirate City

Von Rosenberg

Earlier this week I posted a video of Jameson Taillon pitching against the New York Yankees’ farm system in a Spring Training game at Pirate City.  After Taillon pitched three innings, Zack Von Rosenberg came on to pitch the next four innings.  Von Rosenberg mostly sat in the 88-90 MPH range with his fastball, and got hit hard at times, as he mostly worked on fastball command.  He did display a nice curveball, getting a few strikeouts and swinging strikes with the pitch.

In the first, Von Rosenberg sat at 88 MPH, with a 78 MPH curve.  He allowed a double and a single to start off, then got a double play and another ground out to get out of the inning.  In the second inning he was sitting around 89 MPH, and had a nice strikeout on a 74 MPH curveball.  He topped out at 90 MPH in the third, but dropped to 85 MPH towards the end of the inning.  He allowed a bases loaded triple during the frame.  In the fourth he was again at 85 MPH, but again topped out at 90 MPH.  He was affected by two errors from his defense.

Here is the video of Von Rosenberg pitching during the outing.

    Is it just me, or does it look like he throws harder out of the stretch?

    That is a very nice curve. Not too loopy and had guys way out in front of it.
    Any chance that some of his low 80’s pitches were rudimentary changeups?
