Phil Miller wrote a really nice article on Zack Granite last night after the game. In our post game scrum with manager Paul Molitor, he really sang the praises of Granite and what he's seen from him.
Here are some more phrases that I transcribed from the manager.
“Shows no fear.”
“Strike zone knowledge.”
“He’s thrown the ball well.”
“He’s gone to get it.”
“There’s a lot of people, but I was looking forward to watching him play.”
Molitor is clearly impressed with Granite and sees a place for him on the roster. Granite survived the first cuts today. It's still most likely that he starts the season in Rochester, but he's made a very strong impression with his speed and his baseball acumen and instinct.
