@TjSweens - Trust me, that article is wrong. During season he sat 94 per synergy and when he went to the Cape he sat 96 and was hitting 97/98 multiple times. I am confident he will dominate A ball, AA is where we will obviously see what he is but with what i have heard and seen he should be successful.

First of all, welcome and keep posting.

I hope your right about the kid. There are multiple scouting reports on guys in the top 250 and they will tell a slightly different version of velo and spin rates. It wouldn't surprise me if his velo has continued to increase as he moves farther from TJ. According to MLB, his fastball sits mid 90s (92 +) and doesn't have a lot of swing and miss to it. That again may be something that is improving with time after TJ. 100 mph might be a little challenging for someone with a 6'2" frame. If he can touch 98, that's plenty good. I wouldn't want him to need a second TJ due to a quest to reach 100 mph.

What I like is that the Twins drafted a kid like this where you should draft him. TJ before even being drafted is a big red flag. The Twins took a flyer on Conner Prielipp in the second round last year. He is heading in for his second UCL surgery after 6 2/3 IP. So, I like Pasquato just fine and I like where the Twins drafted him. I wish him well.

All indications are that this was the right pick to make. Hopefully it bears fruit.

Thanks and I am excited to be here, I hope you aren't taking my posts to be argumentative.... I just know a little more about his situation from scouts and people around him so I wanted to add that in. 100%, he doesn't need to hit 100 especially since his CH makes his fb look much faster obviously but seeing his velo ascend so quickly especially after Tj paints the picture that he could reach that velo and knowing he is is one of those extremely athletic fast twitch kids makes me think it's def there but obviously would not want that at the cost of a blowout again. The Fb did get an excessive amount of foul balls which really hurt his K rate but watching him throughout the season he had most batters 1-2 or 0-2 so that is encouraging. Just needs to put them away now and with the Cb coming back I think that would def help with that. He also is a winner and his team usually gets up for him (Cal won 10 of 14 games he pitched and 1 or 2 of the losses were 1-0 games I believe so thats another +). Like I said in an earlier post, I am unfamiliar with the Twins pitcher development program and how they build pitchers but from what I have read they help a lot of guys with the FB and that could push him over the edge where he needs to be. I am sure you know more about the developmental side of their system than me so let me know your opinion on that. He had a lot more life pre injury but like I said the numbers are just a little deceiving due to his injury happening early in that freshman season and pitching with the injury for more than half the season. I saw him pre season that year in the scrimmages and bullpens and thats where you really could see his potential with the fb/cb so thats kind of what I am basing everything off of. The best news is the CH is still there after and his feel for it has gotten even better so thats exciting and it's truly a bugs bunny ch. Thanks for the welcome, let me know more about the developmental side of the Twins system if you don't mind. Look forward to this class, I really think all around it was a strong draft for us.

Seem to remember another pretty good Twins pitcher with a good fastball and one of the best changeups in baseball.
Santana.
Hope the kid stays healthy.

Hah, We could only hope!

Thanks, some more little stuff that is plus on him that I forgot to mention....

Since High School and including his Club seasons with the San Diego Show where he had one of the best summers you could have with an era under 1 and even throwing a no hitter with 11 k's against the Alabama feeder team and earning all pitching team in every pg tourney and elite pitching team at Worlds that whole summer, he has only given up 26 xbh with 700 bf. He is a great gb pitcher and gets tons of db opportunities and is a phenomenal defensive player (played SS, 2b, and OF his whole life so makes sense). Hasn't made an error in over 3 years and made some extremely impressive defensive plays both years in college. That should be the last of the fanboying haha but just some more good info on him. Praying for the healthy seasons for him and the others as well. If anyone has more info on the pitching development methods of the Twins org please chime in, I am very interested in learning more about their process and methods.

Our goal is to avoid arm amputations, and at that we are usually successful.

Brooks Lee has been promoted to St. Paul. He got off to a bit of a sluggish start in AA, but his slash line is now up to .292, .365, .476, .841. In July he hit .365. Since June 1, he is carrying an OPS of .901.
