Prospect of the Day:  The Starting Pitchers

Yovani Gallardo may have struggled for the big league squad, but the minor league system featured a quartet of pitchers who found significant success in their 2012 debuts.

The combined K/BB ratio between the four pitchers was 26-to-7 with exactly four runs allowed over 20 innings of work. Thornburg and Nelson were the main course, but Gagnon and Fiers proved to be the true delicacies of the evening. Specifically, Gagnon’s changeup was reportedly strong. Scouting reports suggested that he featured a plus changeup coming out of college, so that should not be overly surprising.

It has only been two days in the minor league season. We have seen, however, exactly what we expected to see from the farm system. Solid pitching and absolutely no offense. It will be an issue all season, and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers could experience significant troubles scoring until the return of Nick Ramirez and Max Walla later this season.
