    Should we be concerned that Vic Black is getting pummeled despite his plus stuff?

    j: Based on his last few outings, and the fact that he faced 5 batters and only threw 16 pitches/11 strikes, I would be willing to bet that his management told him to pitch to contact. The two guys who had doubles off of him were Anthony Rendon and A kid from the WS by the name of Sanchez – both are batting over .300 and combined they were 8 for 8 yesterday. Sanchez made it from Hi A to AA and then to AAA in 2012.

      Yeah, I realize he’s playing some decent batters, but he appeared to be MLB ready after his Altoona season. It could be fatigue, but guys with high 90’s heat shouldn’t be all that hittable (and he wasn’t very hittable at AA).
