Bowling Green Hot Rods - LHP Matt Moore: He seems to have the stuff, but he's showing none of the control he did with Princeton last season.


  1. Does anybody know what Jason Cromer throws? The best thing I found on him is a 89-94 mph fastball. I think he should be moved into the bullpen because of the depth of starters the Rays have and that he might fit into the role nicely.

    Also checked his splits during the past four seasons and he has pitched better as a reliever than as a starter.

  2. no telling, but him having a history as a reliever may explain why he was pitching from out of the stretch the whole night
