KEVIN SLOWEY BACK TO AAA

Recommended Posts

kaz2611

Twins sent slowey back to AAA. I'm not surprised. They hit the nail on the head when they compared him to LONG BALL radke. I the kid credit he stays around the plate but he serves up meatballs when he is ahead in the count. I think he also has to slow his pace down on the mound.I dont feel that he really thinks through what pitch he should throw next he just gets the ball and fires it in. I'm glad the twins gave him a shot though and he does show some promise and I think he will be called back up end of august.

He was sent down because MN has 4 games in the next three days and he is not scheduled to pitch for another 10 days with the all star break. They need another pitcher for the upcoming series and because they went deep into the bullpen Slowey's last start. Also will give Slowey a chance to pitch a few games instead of sitting during his 10 days. Yankees make a lot of pitchers look bad. Even the good ones.

That is part of the reason that he was sent down, but IMO he is not ready to pitch at the MLB level just yet.

Let's be honest, his stuff is not that good. All throughout the minors it was said that he has excellent command and throw a few different pitches and that is how he gets hitters out. It didn't look to me like he had very good command at all. He definitely needs to work on that because when he leaves his pitches over the middle of the plate, it is basically batting practice.

Not trying to give up or get down on the kid, but he cannot be right over the middle with an 88 mph fastball with minimal movement.

He had to go down. You don't want to keep sending him out there to get roughed up and destroy his confidence. And the Twins are in the race for the playoffs here...and young starters are just too inconsistent.

I hope Garza can get the job done this time around. He had some experience last year...maybe - just maybe - he is ready this time. Here's hoping he does better than he did last year...

That was a good outing by Garza tonight. The rap on him earlier was that he didn't mix his breaking pitches in enough with his fastball. He had a pretty good mix tonight. He probably just needs to listen to his catchers and maybe he can do all right...

That was frustrating especially against a stiff pitcher like that to get no runs.

Joe hit a groundball on a drawn in infield. Not exactly a smash but it did get the job done.

Cuddyer choked last night too. They needed to win that game. You aren't going to get pitching any better than that. Great game by Garza, looks good for the future.

P.S. Since this thread is about Slowey, he just pitched a nine inning shutout last night down in AAA.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
