It is hard to go by the pop in the catcher’s mitt. Other notes his delivery is still violent and not smooth. With is his size he really looks like a man among boys.

From what I’ve heard, he’s been in the same range this year.

He looked pretty well going 6 innings and giving 3 runs including a solo home run against Salem. I wasn’t keeping score but I believe he struck out 6 walked 3 while giving up 5 hits. The stadium did not have a radar gun display butting judging from the pop in the catcher’s glove he seemed to have good velocity and mostly kept the ball down.

Tallion is sinking fast, WVA can’t pitch, Bradenton can’t hit, and Altoona can’t do a darn thing.

Well, here’s to a successful season and getting back on the horse. If he does well enough, maybe even see some trigger time in Pittsburgh in September
