Contreras Getting Called Up

Post by Dan_Stonerook »

Starting Wednesday. #6 prospect in the system. 96 mph fastball, with a good changeup and curve, and a solid slider. He dominated AA. He had a forearm issue and missed two months.

Can't wait to watch this one tonight. Not really sure what to expect. As long as he doesn't have a disaster for a start, I'll be happy.

Taillon went 8 and 6 this year with the Yankees to go along with his 4.40 ERA. He is injured again and questionable for post-season.
I like the fact that the Pirates received 4 top 30 prospects for him. Contreras is the main guy though.
