I didn’t watch all of it, but what I saw was bad. It looked like a HS team.

Good piece on Casey Mize at the SBNation Detroit Tiger's site...

https://www.blessyouboys.com/2019/2/13/18223004/detroit-tigers-prospects-casey-mize-mlb-pipeline-spring-training-2019

quote:

Even more tantalizing was Chris McCosky’s piece for the Detroit News on Mize’s embrace of data and technology in his training. After three seasons of pitching for an Auburn program that has invested in analytics, Mize showed off a fine grasp of the concepts behind using spin rate, spin axis, and video to develop pitches and refine his mechanics. In his offseason study, he used that data to make a major adjustment to his slider, trying to add more horizontal break.

quote:

“The numbers are right there in front of you. You can see the flight of the ball, the path of the ball. You know how it’s playing off your other pitches. With the slow-motion cameras, you can see the last thing the ball touches out of my hand.”


He referred to the new breaking ball as a hybrid slider-curve, and appeared to be using a spike curveball grip on it. Further examination will be required to confirm that. The slider is the pitch some had pegged as his weakness coming out of the draft. Currently, FanGraphs gives it a 50 grade, or major league average, with a ceiling of 55 (above-average). If he has some kind of frisbee slurve ball now, those assessments may change in a hurry.

SIAP but per autigers07 on the bunker looks like Davis Daniels is out through the first two conference series.

Yeah, we've got 4 guys I trust to pitch during a conference series right now in Burns, Anderson, Owen, and Greenhill. Hopefully some of these freshman lefties grow up in a hurry.

Good news is we should only lose Holland, Daniel, and maybe Woley and Anderson leave this year.

Burns just pitched one hell of a game. Gave up only 2 hits and had 15 strikeouts.

Butch updated Daniel's status a couple days ago...

Daniel timeline pushed back
Bryan Matthews • AuburnSports.com

AUBURN | No. 18 Auburn will be without its No. 1 pitcher for a little bit longer than expected.

Junior right-hander Davis Daniel, who had to leave his opening day start with forearm tightness, won’t return until well after the start of SEC play March 15.

“I just think it will be more in that six-week range before we have a feel. So I’d probably stack a couple of weeks on there,” Auburn coach Butch Thompson said. “I would think that we would start a throwing program in three weeks so that’s backed our projection up a couple of weeks. Hopefully he’ll be there but that’s a little deeper in SEC play, maybe the first month into SEC play before he might be available to us.”

Davis returned to Auburn for his junior season after being drafted in the 11th round by the Milwaukee Brewers last summer.

“Davis has chosen Auburn University twice — out of high school and then last year to return,” Thompson said. “I think Davis Daniel wants nothing more than to help Auburn. The coach, myself, I want him to do nothing but help Auburn. At the same time, he’s chosen us to not only develop him, but to protect him.

“This will take a very measured, patient approach to getting him back and making sure he’ll be 100 percent before he steps on that mound. That he’s comfortable, his family’s comfortable, we’re comfortable before we do that.”

Daniel lasted just 2.0 innings in his start against Georgia Southern Feb. 15. He struck out three batters in the first inning before feeling discomfort and giving up three hits in the second.

“When you wake up on an opening day, it’s one of the most exciting days of your young baseball career and before the sun goes down it’s not. But I think he’s doing much better this week,” Thompson said.

With Daniel out, sophomore right-hander Tanner Burns has taken over the No. 1 role and will pitch against Cincinnati on Friday. Thompson will start sophomore left-hander Jack Owen Saturday and go TBA on Sunday, with an eye on freshman left-hander Carson Skipper to get his first weekend start.

“Jack Owen, Carson Skipper are a couple of guys we really feel like will be rewarded by how they’ve attacked the strike zone,” Thompson said. “If you’re a position player on our team and liking how somebody works in rhythm and quickness, those two lefties have done an admirable job of just getting us on and off the field, pounding the strike zone and making the opponent beat you.”

Double header today due to the shit-tastic weather we'll have all day tomorrow.

And Tanner Burns was ridiculous yesterday.
