Velocity was a bit down for the previous start. Touching 94. I've yet to see anything yet on last night. He might be a guy who... again moves to the pen.

from the SALY had him 92-95 "early" during his previous start and dipping in the third. Not bad but also not the extreme velocity he's shown previously.

Couple of notes from recent Mets extended spring games:

RHP Christian James has looked very good, tons of upside here as heís been hitting mid-90s with fastball and mid-80s with slider.

Infield Yoel Romero has looked good with bat and defensively. He had .903 OPS last year.
A ton of buzz on James

A name to keep an eye on

As I said the other night, Fermin is off to a monster start for a slap hitter who canít run... I think he even stole a base last night.
Just wondering

Whatís the love affair with Viall here? Seems like every couple days heís a topic of conversation.
Did I miss Drew Smith's call up to Vegas?  
Eric on Li : 4/17/2018 11:32 am : link
or is that a different Smith.

Frame and overstated velocity reports.

Size and stuff have always led to high strikeout numbers and making it difficult to hit against, but like many big pitchers he can't repeat his delivery which leads to high walk numbers. If he ever can get it all moving in right direction consistently he has a lot of upside.
Iím familiar with him

Just wondering what the love affair is about every couple days around here. He seems to be the most asked about prospect here.
Viall - ( New Window )
i've been asking  
CMicks3110 : 4/17/2018 12:31 pm : link
about him. Not sure who else has been. I like his upside.
