Yep, it's nice to see him regain velocity.   With him and Norris both throwing harder I'm thinking maybe it's not all the organization's fault they lost it.

Careful. Don’t step on the narrative.

Didn’t see this posted, but Burrows had a nice line as well last night. He did throw 80 pitches in four innings though. 

4 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K

sportz was angry that they are playing Paredes at the same position as Candelario(3B) and not moving him to 2b yet.

He's just trying to follow in JV's footsteps.

I like Jeimer, but I wouldn't try to argue the jury isn't still out on his bat.

Brock Deatherage having a rough start. 0-12 with 10 K’s. Ouch. 

He must be watching Lloyd’s hitting videos.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t following more closely because of his name.

Fangraphs

Derek Hill, CF, Detroit Tigers
Level: Double-A   Age: 23   Org Rank: 22   FV: 40
Line: 3-for-5, 2B, HR

Notes
We’ve been all over the place on Hill because for a time, we thought he had made relevant swing changes that might enable him to hit for enough power to profile every day. After last year, that 2017 blip of production seemed like noise, and we again considered Hill a glove-first bench outfield prospect. If his first three games — 8-for-15, three extra-base hits — are a sign of things to come in 2019 then we’ll have to reconsider once again. We think the appropriate time to do this is about 50 balls in, or after about a month’s worth of games. Hill has clearly been passed by Daz Cameron in the eyes of the org (Daz is younger and at Triple-A), so even if he legitimately improves, it may be hard for him to find playing time with Detroit.

Comerica Park is he most spacious park this side of Yellowstone. If Hill and Daz can both hit MLB pitching, there's room for two plus gloves in the OF.  

Been a Tigers fan for decades...people were thrilled about the potential staff in the late 70's/early 80's...guys like Morris, Petry, Rozema, Mike Chris, Pat Underwood, Bruce Robbins etc...  I think this group we have now rivals that group.  It's also telling that of thoser names, only two became key members of a Championship ball club.  Pitchers...so fragile and mercurial

yeah, I don't worry about playing time when it comes to prospects.  If a guy can hit and field, they will find a spot for him.

I'm trying to understand what 50 balls in means if it equates to a month's worth of games.

I''m guessing 50 balls in play to evaluate his hard hit rate.

I remember when CoPa opened, thinking the Tigers should get a bunch of speedy OFers who can slash the ball to the gaps. It's crazy how few they've had in the last 19 years. Hill and Daz profile very well for this park.

Cold from this big storm system should be cleared out by next Wed. Hard to see anything else keeping Mize in FLA.
