Last night was the first chance I got to see Curtiss pitch. Even though he gave up the HR, he bounced back for a quick 3 pitch K, and another K after that. He's got filthy stuff. I hope he can take over the role we wanted Pressly to be this year (6-8th inning high leverage)
That was a great example of why I think it's important to bring guys up and let them work in low-leverage situations before working up to higher leverage situations... Curtiss has dominated all season with great stuff, but even his great stuff can be hit out of the part by some MLB hitters. So he had to bounce back and he did. He will have to figure out how his stuff will play and how to get hitters out. It was a good position to do that. I think eventually he could be a closer candidate.
