MiLB 8/31

Not sure who all is going tonight, but I wanted to briefly mention Nick Tropeano, who is pitching tonight.  I liked this fifth round pick from my home team, and he's making me like it more with a 56 strikeouts, 19 walks, and a 2.61 ERA in 48 innings in the NYP this year.


Reports prior to the draft were that his fastball sat in the upper-80s with good movement, but his manager said yesterday that it's in the low-90s range.  I'm not sure if that's true, but if so, that coupled with his quality secondary  pitches, command, and pitchability seems like a nice package and could elevate my view of him from a high-floor back of the rotation type to one who could potentially become a MoR arm.

A guy to keep an eye on, anyhow.
