Prior to today’s game, the Pittsburgh Pirates reassigned Nick Evans, Jake Fox, Eric Fryer and Ryota Igarashi to minor league camp. Fox and Evans just didn’t do enough.
Igarashi has a live arm… he can strike batters out… But command is another thing all together. Damn, can he frustrate a team with all those walks.
We were pleased with how well Fryer played. He can hit the ball, and his defense has started to improve. It sucks to think about the amount of outs Mike McKenry will make this season while Fryer works on improving in the minors. We wonder just how close those two really are, or if we are imagining Fryer’s improvement?
