"At this point, he's still stretching out. We need him built up in his pitches and the percentage of quality pitches. He's making great progress," Stockstill said. "There is no rule that said if we needed him, that he couldn't be in the big leagues his next start, that's always a possibility. There are no plans now to send him to Triple-A."

Still isn't going deep enough into games. They already knew he was going to pitch well in Double-A, he did so before he got hurt.

Shutout through 4. 3 hits, 5 k's, 0 walks. How much more does he have to do to get up here? He's been incredibly consistent and dominant.

The heck with Patton. ;) Let's talk about bringing up Snyder. He's hit his 7th HR tonight. The kid is incredible.

Good news. Hopefully Mike will give some info about his velo and the shape of his pitches.

Fastball around 86-88 MPH

Changeup around 77-79 MPH

Slider around 79 MPH

According to one source I spoke to, Patton's fastball velocity has gradually increased since spring training. Of course, prior to his surgery, he was sitting around 91-92 MPH. Encouraging stuff from Patton, I have to say. Another solid outing.

He's done now. Fredy Deza is in.

Why such a short outing? What was his pitch count?

    • His glove is definitely ready. That’s what people are saying and since that is what Mateo is bringing the table, it stands to reason that he can replace him. Either way, Mateo is definitely not “too important” to trade.
    • Yes, they do.  And clearly they've come to a differnt conclusion than you.  I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt; not random posters on the OH- no offense to random posters on the OH.  I'm a random poster on the OH.
    • That would require me to read your entire post and we both know I can only handle maybe two sentences at a time when it comes to your posts.  😉
    • No, acting like Ortiz is DEFINITELY ready is the only thing that is untrue.  This is a discussion that could be had but it isn't had in good faith.  There are posters who KNOW he's ready, when of course, you can't possibly know that.  But judging by historical and current norms, 120 ABS in AAA is nothing.
    • Yes, IF you have sufficient runs being scored by the rest of the team.  Unfortunately last year we had too many black holes in the lineup, and to this point we haven't done much to fix that this year.  Thus the additional black hole of Mateo is more evident.  Sure, a good offensive team can carry a all glove, no bat guy or two in the lineup, but we aren't currently constructed that way.  
    • So every time they advance a level they throw out all the old data? It's weird, as much as folks here talk up the front office it also seems like they sometimes underestimate them.  They should have a lot of data to draw from.
    • So?  We know the glove will play, and since that's pretty much all he'd be replacing, Mateos glove, then more time in AAA really isn't going to make a difference.  Now if you want to factor in team control and stuff like that, then that adds to the equation.  But to suggest that Ortiz needs more time in AAA to be able to adequately replace Mateo isn't really true.  Sure, his bat could likely use more time adjusting to AAA and then the majors, but since he's replacing a terrible bat in the lineup I'm not sure it's as large of a deal as folks are making it out to be.  It's not like we are bringing up a guy to replace Santander, or Mullins or Adley.  It's all glove, no bat Mateo and Ortiz seems very capable of doing so now, even with only 25 AAA games under his belt.  That's largely because of how bad Mateo is with the bat though.
