Prospect Reports: Breaking Down Nick Kingham’s Stuff Against Akron

Follow @CTD_Sypien It was a tale of two Nick Kingham’s on a cool spring Saturday night in Akron, Ohio. Kingham dazzled with consistency during the first three frames, working ahead in the count, repeating his delivery, and working quickly. During his final two frames, Kingham saw diminished control and got out of his quick rhythm on the mound. On the night Kingham threw three pitches to a line up which featured top Indian...

Andy Oliver Dominating, But Still Has Questions With His Control

For former top prospect Andy Oliver, the only thing that is keeping him out of the Major Leagues is control, or lack there of. While he led the International League in strikeouts with 138 in 2013, he also blew away the competition with his league leading 112 walks. In fact, Oliver had more walks than hits allowed. He only allowed 99 hits in his 124.1 innings. Though on the surface, it doesn’t appear that Oliver has seen much...

The sinker is working early for Casey Sadler

Though Casey Sadler admitted that he was trying to “refine the craft and get better as the year goes on,” getting better may be a tough one for the sinker ball throwing right-hander. In four starts, Sadler has a 1.67 ERA in 27 innings in Triple-A. In his last outing, Sadler was just dominant, allowing just four hits in seven shutout innings. He walked two and struck out six.

What the future holds for Andrew Lambo

On Sunday, Andrew Lambo started in left field in Indianapolis. Though it is his natural position over first base, unfortunately it shows what we already knew – how the Ike Davis trade would impact his future with the club. Lambo, who was given every chance out of Spring Training to take over the platoon job against right-handed pitchers at first base, had a dreadful Spring Training and was demoted to Triple-A. However, a hot start to...

After tough start, Phil Irwin is sent to the bullpen

The season has gotten off to a rough start for Phil Irwin, resulting in the right-hander being designated to the bullpen in Indianapolis. The move coincides with the addition of Jeff Locke to the squad. After dealing with some setbacks from tendonitis in his elbow in the spring, Irwin saw only three innings in two games in Florida. Following his assignment to Indianapolis, Irwin allowed 11 earned runs in just six innings over a pair...
