His debut piece is a feature on O's pitching prospect Kenny Wise. Dan spent a week in Sarasota for ST and spoke with Wise at the Buck O'Neil Complex. Enjoy!
SARASOTA, Fla. — Every minor league spring training camp is filled with players trying to get noticed – mostly lanky young men attempting to convince scouts and evaluators of what they might one day become.
At 6’6″, 225 pounds, however, it’s difficult not to catch some attention. An imposing physical specimen, Orioles pitching prospect Ken Wise tends to stand out among his peers. The right-hander uses his massive frame to generate an impressive fastball/slider combination. Size and speed, however, were not always the pitcher’s forte.
