First Pitch: How About Those Future Aces?


I’ve spent the last two nights watching two of the top pitching prospects in the system show why they’re two of the top pitching prospects in the system. I’d write more about it here, but I’ve already written a ton about each guy. So for now, check out my articles on Gerrit Cole and Luis Heredia, with their names linking to their articles.

I’m writing this at 1:15 AM. It’s the second night in a row I’ve left the press box after 1 AM. So the links are all I’ve got left in me tonight.
