Watching video’s of him pitching, you have to say he has nasty stuff.

Thinking he will be moving onto different top prospects lists at their midseason updates, thoughts?

Priester better get healthy or Burrows is going to steal his spot in Pirates rotation.

Believe me, there are spots available for both.

Movin’ on up!

TINSTAAPP. There Is No Such Thing As A Pitching Prospect. Every starting pitcher at every level is a ticking time bomb for injury and/or bust. Keep moving them up to the point of failure because you have no idea how long you’re going to get this kind of performance from them.

In other words, get Burrows to Indy quick. They’ll make room for him in the rotation.

Yep, time to move him up.

A pitcher who throws strikes…what a wonderful concept…
