Not ‘incredibly raw’. I saw Glasnow in High School (the same HS as Bob Walk) and he had the best pitching coach and is ‘incredibly advanced’ along with his training in Bradenton. Like Bob Walk, he is a player’s player. Popular with teammates and coaches. His high school coach believes he is on his way to greatness. He will turn 20 Aug 23 2013 and is growing stronger. Prospects lists him at 6-8 220. Tim will have to see him pitch and access his size.

I still really like Taillon. I’m also not sure if Machado can play short. He’s at third right now, mostly due to JJ Hardy. It was never a guarantee that he’d stick at short.

He’s consistently 90-96.

It would have been easier for Dickerson to go to first and Lambo in RF. I guess they want each player learning new positions.

I don’t think I’ve seen many so far this year. Is he able to consistently get into the mid-90′s range now?

It’s exciting to see a pitcher, while still incredibly raw, that is able to do the things he’s doing right now. That’s all while having his pitch selection controlled radically, I’m sure.
