nobody here is talking about Andrew Vasquez though.. The guy has 63 K's in 40 innings. last year 51k's in 38 innings.. 0.89 ERA this year and 1.41 last year. I think this is a guy we have to push up to AA and possibly give this guy a september call up if he keeps it up and rips through AA. looks like he's legit outa the pen


I posted something about him last week, he's been awesome.

You don't check here often enough then :)  I literally just posted within the week videos of him throwing since being drafted.  Vasquez pitches off his breaking balls (2 "different" sliders - one looks like a curve and the other a soft slider) instead of his fastball. He's maybe 30-40% FB for his pitch percentage.  It's the model, thanks to trackman etc, that many pitchers are going towards of throwing your best pitch more often than your fastball.

can't see everything I guess :D
