  1. The Dbacks patience with Skaggs and Bauer could also be attributed to their desires to probably not only have them for an additional year of control, but also avoid them being eligible for Super Two status.

  2. I saw last night that Skaggs pitched only 2 innings. Is that in anticipation of a call up?

  3. I believe it was a rainout

  5. Yep.

  6. Yes, and that would be acceptable as well. It only becomes a topic of conversation if the guy is trolling the minor league ripening on the vine. Bauer and Skaggs are still adding polish and neither is unquestionably ready for the show.

  7. In my mind, these types of posts are really one of the highlights of FG. I love watching and reading about this kind of stuff.

  10. I am a bit surprised that Bauer’s groupies haven’t flocked here to protest the fact that this article was merely approving rather than a complete tongue bath. lol

  11. “Later on, the pitch featured late tail on the hands of right-handed hitters, with identical arm action to his fastball.”

    That is definitely not the action you are looking for in a R on R change.

  12. Yes it is. Guys with good running changeups (verlander, Felix, etc) usually only throw their changeups armside and they let it almost act like a left handed slider.

  13. Hey Mike,
    In a keeper league with unfortunately shallow benches, do you suggest grabbing Bauer and stashing him, or Detwiler?

  14. eerie similarities to Lincecum

  15. I really hope he isn’t stubborn about the high fastball thing, seems unnecessary given how nasty he can be.

    Thanks, this article made me feel better about him actually, I’m always worried about pitching prospect busts and I love to be assured otherwise. :) But I still can’t shake the feeling that the Dbacks’ pitching-heavy farm is going to backfire somehow. :(
