They’re highly controlled. Players are removed mid-inning if they reach their pitch count, then thrown back out there the next inning. After getting two quick outs, they’ll throw a runner on second base to force the guy to pitch in a situation. If a guy gets three quick outs, they’ll leave him out there for an extra out or two, just to get work in.

I won’t have any updates on the extended guys until they reach the short season leagues, just because there wouldn’t be much of a point to the updates. Without actually being there to see the story behind the numbers, the numbers are useless.

He’s not hurt so he must be pitching. Any information on recent outings from him?
