BRADENTON, Fla. - A year after his big breakout season, Oddy Nunez continues to show some promise.

The 6' 8" lefty has pitched in two games so far this year in his jump to Bradenton, although the early outings have been unconventional. His first start saw a long rain delay which limited him to one inning of work. The second start began in the second inning, pitching behind A.J. Schugel, who was making a rehab appearance.

The combined effort has seen him giving up one earned run in six innings, with six hits, one walk, and two strikeouts. It's not enough to say that he's going to handle the Florida State League with as much ease as he handled the South Atlantic League last year. But seeing Nunez in Spring Training, and seeing him briefly this year, he continues to look promising.
