Finally, some good news. Looks like big ticket 2009 draft pick Zack Von Rosenberg is finally back to flashing the stuff that made him seem like a potential steal last year. Most encouraging, his velocity seems to be back up from the 85mph meatballs he was throwing for the first few weeks. John Sickels did a nice little write-up on him yesterday at www.minorleagueball.com:
**Zack Von Rosenberg Watch: He's been much better in his last two outings for State College in the New York-Penn League, throwing 10 innings, with a 9/2 K/BB, just seven hits and two runs allowed. His ERA is down to 4.85 with a 17/6 K/BB in 26 innings; not bad at all given how badly his first three stats went. Best of all, velocity is reportedly back to what was originally expected after being down in spring training. NY-P sources report he's made some mental adjustments and is adapting rapidly to the pro environment.
