  1. Phil Wunderlich also has 10 homers.

  2. has anyone see CJ Refeinhauser pitch? He has statistically looked very good and consistent this year. Without reading any first hand reports he has soared up my prospect list for the Rays.

  3. I have seen C.J. pitch all of his home games this year. I am not a scout or a talent evaluator but here is my take.
    C.J. throws a fast ball, sinker (two-seam fb), slider and a change. He has very good command of all four pitches and mixes them up to keep hitters off balance. His fastball usually sits at 89 and the max on the B.G. scoreboard gun has been 91. He does not have the velocity of Romero or Lara but he knows how to pitch. Just watching him work it appears to me that his fastball is faster than it registers because he mixes his pitches so well.
