  1. Dang. That was thorough.

  2. that 9K 2BB performance you got to see was followed by a 13K 2BB performance that especially considering his early struggles had to feel good. Hopefully this kid can harness his potential now that the Rockies have seen the error in playing with his mechanics

  3. The title missed out on a great opportunity- 2011 Proves Rocky for Rockies *Rookie* would have made it somewhat more impressive. Yeah, he’s not a rookie yet technically, but the assonance and alliteration is to great to pass up.

  4. I was actually in attendance for the 5 K, 3 BB performance @Rome.

  5. Would be impressive for the English scholars, but crummy for SEO!

  6. Very Good, your conclusions are a bit vague does he still profile as a TOR starter after this up and down year?

  7. YooHoo, it’s nearly impossible to tell what Matzek will be right now based on his not being all the way back. I left things vague because they are vague. 3 months ago, Matzek was fighting for his career. 2012 will really be a telling year.

  8. “your conclusions are a bit vague”

    As is appropriate. This idea that evaluators can (or should) determine a player’s ultimate outcome is a dubious one. Players, especially pitchers, do not develop in a linear fashion, and as a 19- and 20-year-olds what they are today is almost certainly not what they’ll be in three, or five, or ten years.

  9. The Rockies have another highly touted LH pitcher, Christian Friedrich, who is also fizzling out as a prospect, only at the AA level.

  10. I did not read this article at all just interested in Tyler for personal reasons. If you notice he steps across his body a little more on his slider and has an inconsistent release point. He needs to straighten his drive line out and stop pulling across his body. I do love his hip rotation thought. He does a good job rotating his hips and shoulders through release. Keep up the good work Tyler. Continue with the WW/IB they will get you where you need to go.
