Today is my last day down here, but Tim, Kristy, and Wilbur will still all be down here for a little while. I got over to Pirate City at 9:30 a.m. to check out the action and see the intra-squad scrimmages.
Here's some quick thoughts on players that I saw:
* Yhonathan Herrand -- Herrand was sitting 92 and touching 93/94, but he had very little command of his fastball. He plunked Ferrell and buzzed at least 2 other hitters during his 2 innings.
* Luis Heredia -- Heredia was sitting 92 today and showed a sloppy curveball around 74 twice. Heredia covered 1B on a ground ball the 1B had to field. He was a little slow getting started, but moved well once he got going. He made the catch from the 1B in stride.
* Logan Pevny -- I didn't get a gun reading on him (Tim borrowed it for a minute and he is the boss) but he slings it at a 3/4 cross-fire delivery.
* Alex Lukashevich -- He was at only 83-84 on his fastball, but his curve was fantastic in the 76 mph range. He had a few hitters ...
