Trevor Hurley

Trevor Hurley is making his LowA debut in relief of Matt Thompson as I type this: 3 quick perfect innings, 4 SO. He wields a very heavy sinker or sinking FB, wipeout slider with very sharp late break, and what seems to be a good change. He's one to watch IMHO and a developmental success story for the org as a fringy late draft pick with zero command turned rotation prospect. I'll be very curious to see if TX will move him into the rotation soon. Here is a scouting report on him from last season.

Matt Thompson had an impressive outing as well: 5/7/1er/0/7, 7-0 g/a.

Kyle Ocampo is wielding a wicked wicked slider/slurve in this outing as well. Hitters completely overmatched and can't even make contact with the pitch. Hurley, Ocampo and Thompson with some of the best breaking balls in the system. Ocampo gets out of a bases loaded bottom of the ninth jam with no one out, saved in the end by a great diving catch by Christian "Pudge" Santana in shallow LF to send the game to extra innings. Cool stuff.
