AFL Recap 11/11: Rough Day For the Pirates Prospects

The Mesa Solar Sox lost 7-6 to Salt River tonight.  Jarek Cunningham was one of two Pittsburgh Pirates prospects to play.  He started at second base, and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout.  Cunningham also recorded an error on the field, missing a catch.  Jeff Inman pitched an inning, allowing a run on two hits, blowing Mesa’s one run lead at the time.  Inman was touching 95 MPH with his fastball again.

We learned today that Robbie Grossman fractured his hamate bone and will require surgery, which will end his AFL season.

More Pirate bad luck with Grossman!

As for Inman, I thought he was impressive, he did give up  a run, but a couple of those hits were ground balls that got through the infield, he was not hit hard.
What I was impressed with was the fact that he can average 94-95 with a lot of movement on his fastball with a very smooth delivery, not much stress or strain. He kept the ball down for the most part, thus the ground balls, still needs a couple years in the minors and IMO If he can stay healthy, he might be a good one.
