You have one thing to do all off season. Get out and jog 30 mins a day, get some throwing in and lift a few weights. It’s not hard for an 18 year old to stay in shape!

It’s a comparison of how the Pirates have handled guys at the same age in the past.

Keep this in mind: last year Tyler Glasnow pitched in the GCL at the age of 18-19. This year we’re talking about when Heredia will join West Virginia at the same ago. So I don’t think it’s a problem that he hasn’t played a pro game yet.

The fact that he and, to a lesser extent, Jhang have yet to play a pro game in 2013 seems problematic.

Or is it too early to tell and just enjoy that we have them both?

He threw 92-94, touching 96 last year, but lacked control. The lower velocity is mostly about command right now.

I had thought he was (or was projected) to have a mid to high 90′s fastball, but all reports I’ve seen this year have been low 90′s and high 80s. Has he regressed with respect to velocity or is this his expected standard? Is his velocity expected to improve as he gets older or did you base your ranking of him on a low-90s fastball?
