Perusing things today, here are a few things that caught my interest:
Charlie Morton is throwing a sinker again. Or more to the point, Kerrigan told him to stop throwing his sinker. Maybe this is old news, but it's the first I've heard, and I find it significant. First of all, it dovetails neatly with what WHYGAVS has pointed out a lot, which is that Effective Charlie Morton™ is a groundball out machine. Secondly, unlike most of the in-the-best-shape-of-his-life kind of Spring Training nonsense, getting back a sinker (assuming it was originally an effective pitch) seems like an awfully major change.
From yesterday, KG at Baseball Prospectus ranks the Bucs system #17. (free) In a different article, one of the BP writers put Matt Wieters on a list of the most disappointing prospects of all time, which should make us feel a little better about Dan Moskos.
On a similar note, KLaw reports today on twitter that Tanner Scheppers' velo and arm speed are way down, 88-91. Might just be a tick, but Law sounds like it could be a serious problem, exp. given the bum shoulder.
