Meanwhile Fulmer blows up yet again.

Losing patience on him.

It's really hard to develop pitchers, as they get injured in much larger number than hitters. Going heavy on pitching year after year in the draft was foolhardy at best in my estimation.

He is a reliever.
Innings water. Valuable, but definitely not a top 100 prospect.

Problem is I think he's too wild to be a reliever.

Right. He definitely will need a bit more seasoning. He is still relatively young. One more year of AAA after this one will tell us if he is a career minor-leaguer or ready for the bigs. I am worried about him, too. I had high hopes for him. I am not sure if it's his delivery.

Still, overall, it has been a pretty crappy year for all of our top pitching prospects outside of Kopech. I really want to see Giolito and Lopez start dominating down there.

It only gets more difficult up here.

I've thought about this a few times as these guys continue to struggle, I wonder if it would serve the Sox well to probably put Coop on assignment down to Charlotte for one time thru the rotation to see firsthand if he can pick a flaw or two on these guys. Tape is one thing, but being there for both a bullpen (preparation) and in between innings might serve these guys well. There's really nothing Coop is needed for here in the big club for other than Rodon starts.

Just a thought.

That's smart. Not sure how they would go about something like that, but we really can't afford to have pitching prospects like that fail. It sets back our rebuild years.

He could always go on a little tour during the all star break. I would imagine that other teams do the same things with their coaches.

I believe that is Rich Dotson's role now. He was for many years the Charlotte pitching coach but I'm pretty sure I read that he was now in overall charge of minor league pitching and would be a roving instructor between levels.

I think we can all agree we'd rather have Coop getting involved here sooner rather than later, especially with the most prized assets on this team. No disrespect to Dotson.

This is the only part I'm a bit wary on with the rebuild. Player development. I'm starting to get much more confident with the scouting part of this. But my confidence is still a little shy with the folks working with these guys down in the farm.
