Dbacks Prospect Watch: John Pedrotty
Today’s prospect includes yet another pitcher. I’m not discriminating… the Diamondbacks organization is chock-full of good up-and-coming arms. Left-hander John Pedrotty ranks No. 29 in BA and spent the 2011 season with the Yakima Bears in the Northwest League after getting drafted in the 13th Rd in June.
While there, he primarily started and appeared in 15 games (13 starts). He went 2-4 with a 3.04 ERA in 68 innings of work. He struck out 70 and walked just 29.
Pedrotty, at 6-4 220, does not have an overpowering stuff, but instead gets outs with good movement. His fastball sits 88-92 MPH with good sink… he also throws a change up, curve ball and slider.
Prior to pitching professionally, Pedrotty played college ball at Holy Cross (Mass.). BA has him pegged for South Bend in 2012.
For those wondering, there will not be an exhibition game with Notre Dame this season. There will, however, be a media day, and that is next Tuesday.
My efforts to draft former Silver Hawk Miguel Montero onto my fantasy team were thwarted. I have no further comment.
I have also included a few photos. The real boring photo is of the new carpet in our office. I understand it’s a rather pointless photo to include for many, because the average reader doesn’t have a reference point or anything to compare it to. Heck, neither do I.
I took a shot of the scoreboard yesterday during Holy Cross vs. Judson.
The other one is a view from the soon-to-be home plate suite which will offer the “best view in the house.”
