My guess would be that his stuff is probably around this every start.

I haven’t seen Heredia yet, I’m hoping he is in Lakewood when they come back in 25 days. Glasnow is probably a little ahead of Heredia now with the success he has had in low-A, but you have to remember that Heredia is a year younger than Glasnow, so with a good showing once he gets to WV, he could regain that advantage he had earlier. They both have high ceilings, just Glasnow is a step closer to reaching it at this point.

I certainly was not questioning the quality of data in the report. I was merely stating that people at baseball america have a different take on Glasnow’s raw stuff.

What is your opinion on how heredia and glasnow compare?

The only one that was off in the series was the ones I gave for Joely Rodriguez. Everyone had him 2-3 MPH higher, which I noted in Friday’s recap. All the other speeds matched up with others there

Eshelman’s report on his last start of 2012 had him 92-94 and hitting 96 a couple times. So it seems like 92-97 is his typical velo. Eshelman also reported that he throws a 2-seamer as well as the 4-seamer, though, so maybe that’s what people are seeing in the low 90s range.

It might just be if you catch him on a bad day, and he’s a little down.

Their reports said he works more in the low 90s and occasionally hits as high as 95.

Seems like their reports on Glasnow are a little off. There is a huge difference between a teenager throwing low 90s and a teenager throwing consistently 95+ for 5 innings. Do folks on here feel Heredia is a better pitching prospect? Hard to believe at this point.

Good series of articles, I really enjoyed reading about the LowA club.
