Indians 4 game series against the Norfolk Tides.

 

I work for the Norfolk Tides and we just finished up a series with the Indians. Just to let everyone know I'm no scout and unfortunately I'm not able to sit and watch every pitch but these are my main impressions. First off Lincoln looked great constantly got ahead of hitters had about 6 or 7 ks. Very efficient for 6 innings of work. I am not able to watch every pitch of the game so I cannot talk about his off speed stuff but he really seemed to fool the Norfolk hitters and get a lot of weak fly balls and ground balls. Presely really impressed me he seemed to have 3 hits every game was all over the place hitting multiple doubles and a triple and stealing a few bases. Gallagher really struggled here could not get ahead and seemed to leave many balls over the plate and got hit really hard giving up a few home runs. Justin Wilson has been throwing good all year but really struggled in his start here. Also being hit very hard and was run out of the game early. I am not really a burress fan but he really threw well. Went deep into the game and just shut down the Tides. Chase D’arnaud really looks smooth in the field playing 2 games at short and 2 at second. Seemed to be streaky at the plate would hit a ball hard then roll over for an easy ground ball. Dusty brown and Jason jarramilo split time one as the DH and one catching, both looked really good at the plate getting multiple hits or hitting the ball hard. Gorkys hernandez really disappointed me he can’t seem to find anything at the plate rarely hit the ball hard once in the 4 game series. Lambo also struggled at the plate but with him a see more potential he smoked a few balls for out and had a few hits still not great but I can see the possible developement. Pedro ciriaco really was disappointing as well he had such a good spring and now is hitting around .175 in AAA. He just looked okay in the field as well also playing short and second nothing spectacular but also nothing bad. This is my main take away from a 4 game series here in Norfolk.
