What do you think about Luis severino?

Looking for a third pitch, oldest story in the book. Problem for me is I'm not sure which is his second pitch.

As someone who has been following the Pirates system for years, it often seems like our prospects developing a change-up has been that last hump before they're deemed major league ready. My question is, is this something that might just be an organization development specific thing or is that a pretty common barrier for a lot of pitchers, and if so, why is that?
Eno Sarris
12:40
It's hard for a breaking ball guy to learn a change and vice versa, it's just something about mechanics. To me, the knuckle curve and the split finger are the answers to that question, because they are thrown like fastballs, but the splitter makes teams nervous.

Folty is the next Eovaldi, right
Eno Sarris
12:41
oh yeah totally

Heard some talk that Boston might consider something like Moncada and Benintendi for Sale. Am I being a prospect hugger, or is this a depressing possibility as a Boston fan?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Sale is the business, don't worry about the scissorhands.

Success tip! Get to know druids well enough so that you can tell which ones can actually talk to animals and trees and which are just making stuff up for easy money.

what are your thoughts on skaggs?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Surprised that after a stretch of 22% swinging strikes in the minors that he didn't get a lot of whiffs in first start. Still, he has three good pitches. Good velocity. Has improved command.

Ddi you know Chen Ming Wang is pitching in the Major leagues in 2016?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Yes! And he's an inspiration to Chi-Wei Huh!
Mike

Trading Miley would be "selling low" on him, right? That seems to go against everything Dipoto has done since arriving.
Eno Sarris
12:44
Not if you've seen enough to think that maybe this is it.
Pat
12:44
Really want my Rangers to get Archer. Is that realistic?
Eno Sarris
12:44
That contract though.
Grego
12:44
If I were to direct fangraphs the movie, who should be cast as eno
Eno Sarris
12:44
God these days probably TJ Miller
Grego
12:44
Rangers: do they make any more moves
Eno Sarris
12:45
They need a starter, and I can't believe it's Harrel.
Merv Throneberry

Might Joe Smith be closing in St. Louie by next week?
Eno Sarris
12:45
No that would surprise me greatly.

You think Blackmon sticks in COL because of his contract? Not a lot of incentive to lose that good a deal.
Eno Sarris
12:45
Yeah.

Ketel Marte seems like the most recent in a stretch of Mariners SS who is just a shade or two over replacement level, all coming from their system. Not thematic either - Miller skewed bat, Taylor field, Marte who knows. Is it particularly hard to develop SS, or is it a Mariners problem, or just coincidence?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Prospects will break your heart.

Michael Saunders--fluke or late breakout? The Blue Jays have done it before, but I honestly don't know what to make of him
Eno Sarris
12:46
Finally healthy, in good power park, made one adjustment, I believe.
Brack

Say something nice about Jon Gray--he's a ginger, he could use some love.
Eno Sarris
12:47
Love that fastball and the cutter and the slider! Has a real chance at fantasy #2dom.

I need to drop two from Cueto,Foltynewicz,Moore,Shoemaker,Skaggs,Maeda,C.Martinez,H.Santiago,Taillon, ?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Folty Santiago

How the hell has Jay Bruce not been traded yet? He's been on MLBTR more than any player I can remember for like three years.
Eno Sarris

Have you ever talked to any players who bristle at playing for a team strictly due to the logo/mascot?
Eno Sarris
12:49
No! But there's a 'it's not your life' thing with baseball players, so I think they'd shrug and try to advocate for change somehow that didn't get them in trouble.
NYTT

How do you get that Folty's fastball is straight? The movements numbers on both his 4 seam and 2 seam say otherwise, don't they?
