Very meh stuff, stayed off the barrel for the most part, but he'll have to be sharper with his command if he wants that stuff to play especially after the book on him gets out.

What’s his typical repertoire?  Seemed like he threw a lot of fastballs. Maybe with the nerves of his first start he didn’t have a feel for his breaking stuff?

Also he'll likely be able to pace himself better in the future. He threw 93 in the first, which I've never seen or heard of him touching before, adrenaline I'd guess. Then was topping out at 89 in the 4th and 5th inning. Maybe he'd be able to hold 90-91 if he paced himself.

He threw 62% FB, which seems a little high, but not weirdly high. He threw a change, slider, and curveball as well. Maybe a 2S mixed in. His changeup was really poor IMO, and his curveball wasn't nearly an average pitch either. The slider was good at times and his FB has enough armside command that he was able to keep it off barrels. I don't know if the secondary stuff is going to get much better, it's going to be about command for him.

He had 5 swinging strikes good for 5.9% there are 2 qualified major league starters or relievers lower than that, out of 223. 

He hasn't been much better in AAA, 7.4% and 8.2% respectively. Those numbers usually go down as you move up. He'll need some Bleier magic IMO. 

Great summary. That really puts things into perspective. At least he wasn’t out there walking everyone. If he stays up, his next start would likely be in SEA so that would help him.

I was lucky enough to have real good seats last night somewhat close to home plate. 

Looks real tall on the mound. Clearly he was pumped up in the 1st. The lack of swing and misses is concerning. Wasn’t able to finish off Smoak and then the HR.  

Not sure how many more innings he gets in this year but hope to see him some more. Looked like from my seats he mainly pitched up in the zone. Of course some of his misses may have been too juiced up.

I would hope/think except for Cobb and Cashner Buck backs off some of these guys and perhaps goes to a 6 man rotation. It happens everyear it seems. Curious if any other starters get called up.

I expect to see his curveball become much better than what we saw last night.  I think its a good to plus pitch for him.  He seemed to be losing it high and arm side quite a bit last night.  In his presser after the game, Buck mentioned some struggles with the different baseball used in MLB versus MiLB.  He implied that there were some struggles there with getting the feel on his off speed stuff.   Buck went on to mention how ridiculous it is that they use different balls and says he thinks it will get addressed this offseason.

I spoke to a college pitcher that pitched in the CAA and he was telling me how much different the ball was when they played in a game at an ACC stadium (using the ACC ball vs the CAA ball).  He kept a ball to show me the difference in the seams and it was unbelievable.  The ACC ball seems were considerably more raised.  He said his off speed stuff all had considerably more movement but it took him his whole bullpen plus part of the game to get comfortable with trying to control the pitches much less hit spots with them.

Not a bad first start.  Unfortunately I had a late night and didn't get to see it.  Keep running him out there.

Agreed. Looks like a low end 5th starter/swingman kind of guy based off that stuff. Nothing was too impressive but he did bear down nicely in the 5th inning to get out of that jam and earn the win. Seems like a guy who can maximize his stuff due to makeup. Still, I'd like to see him a few more times before making too much of a judgement call on him.

I thought the ball difference was a factor. Everything he threw was in the upper half of the zone and with his skill set he will get destroyed pitching above or near the belt. I wasn't overly impressed with his stuff, but I would be willing to give him a couple more chances to see if it was nerves or the baseball

I agree about the command, but if he’s been generating weak contact in the minors I’m guessing he has some deception. It’s hard to tell on tv, but some of the few swings and misses (inside FB to Travis) were well placed and didn’t seem to be plus pitches. His CH is below average and the slider command is spotty. Hitters having trouble picking it up? He does have the type of delivery that looks like he’s jumping at the hitter.

The ball could be a legitimate issue for the first start, but the command definitely needs to improve. The HR allowed to Smoak was a good example of bad command without movement.

Roch predicts one more start from Rogers before shutting him down for the season:

Quote

* I wrote yesterday that left-hander Josh Rogers will get one more start with the Orioles after winning his major league debut on Tuesday. They’re expected to shut him down because he’s already reached 144 2/3 innings with three teams.

    • He could just be sick of being on a chit team.
    • Yikes.  6 runs allowed in just 0.1 innings. Guess he's allowed a clunker on occasion......but yikes.

    • For Immediate Release: July 20, 2019   BULLPEN SHUTS DOWN HILLCATS CUMBERLAND CLUBS GO-AHEAD HOME RUN TO LIFT KEYS LYNCHBURG, VA – A strong bullpen effort and a late two-run home run from Brett Cumberland gave the Frederick Keys (10-20, 39-60) a 3-1 victory in a tight game against the Lynchburg Hillcats (14-16, 46-51) on Saturday night at City Stadium. The bullpen was called upon early in the second inning after Ofelky Peralta left with an injury and they delivered eight shutout innings for the Keys. Juan Hillman was outstanding for the Hillcats as he struck out a career-high 10 batters over seven innings, but Cumberland struck in the eighth with a two-run blast to lift the Keys late in the game. Up 3-1 in the ninth inning, Tim Naughton (S, 4) came in to relieve Zach Matson (1-0), who pitched three scoreless innings and retired nine of 10 batters he faced. Naughton looked sharp to start, striking out Will Benson on four pitches but things turned slowly. Mitch Reeves was able to poke a double down the right-field line and Jonathan Laureano was hit-by-a-pitch which put the tying run on base. Naughton then struck out Jodd Carter looking but he walked Gavin Collins on four pitches to load the bases. Naughton though got ahead 0-2 to Steven Kwan, who flied out to right field to end the game. The Hillcats lone run came in the first inning when they loaded the bases against Peralta with one-out. Will Benson lifted a fly-ball to centerfield and Cole Billingsley fired a dart to third base to nab Wilbis Santiago for the third out of the inning. Tyler Freeman, however, tagged from third base and scored on the fly-ball to give Lynchburg a 1-0 lead. The Key wasted no time getting the run back. Cumberland singled to lead off the second and Cadyn Grenier walked to put runners and first and second with one-out. Hillman then induced what looked to be a groundball double-play, but Luke Wakamatsu threw wide of first base on the relay throw, allowing Cumberland to score and tie the game at 1-1. In the bottom of the inning, Mitch Reeves lined a pitch right back at Peralta which hit the starter’s throwing hand and knocked him out of the game. Scott Burke was called upon out of the pen and stranded Reeves at second to end the inning. Burke went on to throw four scoreless innings. He stranded two runners in scoring position in the fourth inning but only allowed three base-runners in his outing. Hillman was outstanding for the Hillcats. The southpaw through seven innings and struck out a career-best 10 batters. He allowed one unearned run on five hits. Riley Echols (3-1) took the loss after allowing the two-run home run to Cumberland. Cumberland clubbed the first pitch he saw beyond the right-field wall to give the Keys a 3-1 lead. It was his first home run in a Keys’ uniform. The Keys and Hillcats square off in a late afternoon game on Sunday, July 21. RHP Brenan Hanifee (6-9, 4.40) takes the mound for Frederick in his first start since he threw a complete-game shutout. First pitch for game one is scheduled 3:00pm, with pregame coverage starting at 2:45pm on frederickkeys.com and the Tune In radio app.  The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.

    • McKenna Walks Off Curve, 7-6, in Extras Baysox win 13th straight series with win.   BOWIE, Md. – Ryan McKenna grounded a bases-loaded single in the 10th inning to complete a 7-6 comeback win over the Altoona Curve in front of 4,381 at Prince George's Stadium Saturday night.   After Dillon Tate tossed a scoreless 10th inning during his key 2 2/3 relief innings, Mason McCoy laid down a bunt in front of catcher Jason Delay. Pinch-runner T.J. Nichting beat the throw to third base, which set the stage for McKenna after an intentional walk to Cedric Mullins.   With the bases loaded and no one out, the left fielder grounded the first pitch from Curve pitcher Mark Eckelman through the right side of the drawn-in infield to seal the 13th straight Eastern League series victory.   McCoy got the Baysox (23-6) off and running with a run in the third inning to take a 1-0 lead. Jesse Valentin led off with a double down the right field line and advanced on a Stuart Levy single to left field. With one out, McCoy beat out a potential double play to drive in his 22nd run of the season.   The offense knocked Altoona starter Beau Sulser from the game with four consecutive hits in the fifth inning. Rylan Bannon led off with his eighth home run of the season and second in as many games. The opposite-field shot under the scoreboard in right-center field added an insurance run and increased the score to 2-0.   Preston Palmeiro hustled into second base two batters later with the second double in as many at-bats, scoring Valentin on RBI No. 31. Bowie has scored 10 runs in the fifth inning during the four-game series, and they tacked on one more run two batters after Palmeiro's double.   The second pitch of the night from reliever Blake Cederlind skipped to the backstop, allowing Palmeiro to score the third run of the frame. The hosts tacked on a fifth run in the sixth inning, thanks to the third double down the right field line from Valentin that plated Yusniel Diaz. The three doubles for Valentin tied a franchise record for most doubles in one game.   Altoona (15-13) scored four runs in the seventh inning and two runs in the eighth inning to take a 6-5 lead, but Diaz quickly shifted the momentum once again with solo rocket deep to left field. The team-leading 10th home run of the season for the right fielder was the first since July 4.    Despite the late rally effort, Alex Wells turned in another quality start in a no-decision. The lefty held the Curve to five hits and struck out a quartet over six scoreless innings for his 10thquality start, lowering his league-leading ERA to 1.83 in the process.   The series and homestand finale between the Curve and Baysox gets underway at 1:35 p.m. Fresh off his Tuesday night no-hitter, RHP Michael Baumann (2-1, 0.33 ERA) takes on LHP Sean Brady (3-8, 4.42 ERA) in the third game of the season as Los Cangrejos Fantasmas de Chesapeake.   Sunday is Salsa Sunday at the ballpark, where fans can learn how to dance the Latin American genre and take in live performances from local salsa dance troupes, thanks to Chesapeake Insurance.
