Trying to get himself back on the prospect radar.  5 shutout innings tonight, 1 hit 0 walks.  That's following 4 shutout innings in his first start.  That would be a nice surprise.

Spreadsheeting the High-A East pitching numbers for Grayson's farewell, it jumped out at me that Knight is 1st in Lowest BB%, followed by Stallings, and Rom a mere 4th among 25 SP.    Stallings and Rom it is a little bit batters very much like these strikes, but Knight is holding back Hits too.   Could easily be BABIP-luck in a month, but the Ironbirds' other SP seem to be doing great throwing strikes.

Made his AA debut tonight. (I’m assuming he is done for the night)

6 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 BB and 6 Ks.

66% of his pitches for strikes.

So promotion do happen?  We’ve had an overall good/great performance by our MILB’ers this season. Peralta, Knight, Bishop, etc...  Analytics?

Knight made his second start at Bowie tonight. 

5 innings, 82 pitches, 1 run, 3 hits, 7 strikeouts, no walks. Only run was a long home run by Will Toffey.

He was a prospect prior to his disastrous 2019 season. Could be working his way back into consideration.

The lead was the 1-2 switch in Tony's power rankings this week, but I did also notice Knight leapfrogging Lowther, Smith, Rom and Brnovich, a group of pitchers I have some hopes for whereas Knight's 2019 struggles were so deep he'd felt more like a lost cause.

Glad to see him back to pitching well.

I had not noticed that.   Personally I’m not ready to put him ahead of those guys yet.    But, I do recognize that Tony’s list is a power ranking, not necessarily a top prospect list.

Well, the story of that article was 1) he was good, 2) got all out of whack and 3) figured out what made him good and started doing it again.

Hopefully that happens with Lowther, et al too. I just have this bad feeling that the O's are using advanced data and trying to make guys into something that they're not. It will work for some, but might screw guys up in the transition. I don't know. Just a feeling. I have no real evidence to confirm it.
