Prospect of the Day:  RHP Kyle Heckathorn

After being unequivocally praised on Baseball Prospectus for his solid work to begin the season at Double-A, Heckathorn really struggled in his next couple outings. He surrendered twelve earned runs in his 6.2 innings immediately following the increased attention, which obviously made many wonder if Heckathorn really deserved the platitudes.

He bounced back on May 25 with a five inning outing, in which he gave up two runs (one earned) and struck out six. Things improved even more on Thursday evening, as the 6-foot-6 righty only allowed one run and one hit through six innings of work. His strikeouts did not tick up, but his game will be pounding the strike zone and inducing weak contact … likely in the bullpen as his development progresses.

Scouts really believe that Heckathorn has a future in the big leagues. His ultimate role is disagreed upon, but his lanky frame adds deception to his delivery, which helps his stuff play up just a bit. Can he hold his own in the rotation, or will he be forced to the bullpen? It all depends on his ability to throw his three pitches — fastball, slider, changeup — for consistent strikes in any count. If not, he will become yet another fastball/slider pitcher in the mid-ranks of a big league bullpen.

    “Can he hole his own in the rotation?”

    IDK I’m hoping he can pitch pretty well if he’s in the rotation…..heheh

    On another note. Why the hell is Bianchi still at AAA?
