Ya, thats definately a good assesment. He's a real battler on the mound. Your right though, this is probably his last year off the radar, cause if he can kick butt in Winston Salem the rest of hte year (and of course stay healthy) then he'll be in Bham and thats when he really can start making a name for himself.

Even more impressive than his poise on the mound is his control. I don't know if that's a function of the fact that he's not afraid to challenge hitters and doesn't nibble, or that he just has an uncanny ability to locate the ball. His current BB:K ratio is 2:21, that's just sick.

Damn right it is. He can throw his fastball wherever he wants to and is getting to that point with the changeup he just started throwing heavily this year.

He has a good cutter as well, no?

Damn, Whisler continues to throw well. 6 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 5 K's. McCarthy had a nice outing too.

Very, Very nice to see. Wes has been great so far and as for bmac his numbers are just ridiculous, he has basically pin point control and loads up on those k's.

Whisler doing well is a great sign, considering this guy has 4 plus pitches and is a lefty. His problem was just putting it all together, which it looks like he has done so far...

McCarthy's outing was 6 IP, 4 H, 1 BB, 7 SO, 2 ER. The start leaves him 3-0 with a 3.30 ERA at W-S, while Whisler is 3-0 with a 2.76 ERA for Kanny.
