Luis Noel may need time to recover from his surgery, no? Wirsch and Coffey at least were pitching to finish out this season...

Did he have surgery? I don't remember seeing anything about it.

Can't begin to guess who or how it would happen, but with John S. being so aggressive with young guys, it wouldn't shock me to see him send some of the younger kids up the ladder and make room for the better ones up the chain.


Next year Viola and Tanaka (finally!) should move to the bullpen and to Norfolk.

The 2S is going to be his bread and butter anyway, he's got better movement in the same direction and better control with it. Makes the velo issue make a little more sense since the 2S is a couple MPH less.


Makes sense. I don't think he'll be a so called "strikeout" pitcher going forward but he should put up a decent strikeout rate with good GB numbers.

Will do.

I added him on there a few hours ago. Should be good to go as a starter for this season. Looking forward to seeing him in the rotation, I was impressed when I saw him in the GCL.

Berry's curveball looked real nice in the video you posted. If he adds 15 pounds, oh boy, kid has a lot of potential.
