Here is some nice video cut by an LSB poster of the appearances by DGut and Schepp at the AFL future's game.
In that same thread, here is an excerpt from an interview that Jason Cole (Lonestardugout.com) did with Terry Clark, AAA pitching coach. All I can say is what I've been saying all along, police blotters don't lie (and say hello to your newest bullpen prospect):
Cole: How much of a focus with Gutierrez is his changeup right now, as he tries to get that third solid pitch?
Clark: I just talked to him today about making him throw his changeup more in the Fall League to obviously get him to get a feel for it. He’s had such good command on both sides of the plate, his response is, ‘Well, I don’t need it.’ And I’m like, ‘You might not need it now, but you’re going to need it later.’ That’s the big issue—making him throw his changeup at least five to six times to get him to get the feel for it.
For those who think he has what it takes to be a closer, think again. Of the 23 closers with 25 saves or more last year, not one relied on a curveball as his second pitch. I say again, not one. He will need to add a third pitch to succeed as a curveballin' closer, but then, if he was willing to work on a third pitch, we wouldn't be talling about the matter at all, would we? I should add, in passing, Tim Smith's BWC stats: 9g/8gs/29ab/.414/.471/.690/1.161.
