Twins Spotlight: Episode 42 (Cade Povich)

Left-handed pitcher Cade Povich was the Twins third round pick this summer out of the University of Nebraska. Fair to say that he made a strong first impression with the organization. Join us live today at 12:00 pm (central) and send us your questions on the Twins Daily social media platforms, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube pages. 

Cade Povich grew up in Bellevue, Nebraska, a city on the south side of Omaha. He went to South Mountain Community College for his first year of school. He went 10-1 with a 1.52 ERA. In 2020, he returned to Nebraska, heading southwest down I-90 to Lincoln. He made four starts for the Cornhuskers that year due to the COVID shutdown. However, in his 21 1/3 innings, he struck out 26 batters and walked just two. 

He spent that summer playing for the infamous Savannah Bananas

He returned in 2021 as the team's ace. He made 15 starts and tossed 81 1/3 innings. In that time, he walked 22 and struck out 88 batters. Following the season, the Twins used their third-round draft pick on the southpaw. 

Upon signing, he went to Ft. Myers. He made one, two-inning appearance in the FCL and then pitched in three games for the Mighty Mussels. Combined, he walked two and struck out 19 batters in 10 innings. He gave up just one earned run. After the season, he impressed more people at the team's Instructional camp. 

Join us as we go live at 12:00 pm central time. We will discuss his baseball background, talk about his pitch mix, and get to know him a little bit. You can also participate by sending your questions. We'll cover a ton of topics over about 20-25 minutes.

Sounds like this kid could be a good one, Seth.  But then he was a third round pick and it would be nice to have him make it, big!

One correction to your post, Lincoln is an hour southwest of Omaha on I-80, not I-90.  Curious how he enjoyed his summer in Savannah, one of the nicest cities I have ever visited?

Just finished watching another great interview, Seth, thanks.

Sounds like he has been improving a lot each year, and growing, since leaving high school.  Went back to look at this past summer's draft while listening.  See that they took tall lefties with the second, third and fifth picks.  Wouldn't it be fantastic if one of them turned out to be that guy everyone is looking for?  Who knows, maybe it will be Cade.

The one thing I did notice and it could have been the camera angle, but his hands looked really big.  Having never thrown a pitch in my life I don't have a clue, but would that help with his grip?  Thanks again, Seth, love these.
