Not-so-random prospect video

Larry profiled some of the low-level minor leaguers who are off the radar but worth keeping an eye on, which, in turn, reminded me that I never processed the video I shot of Nevin Griffith.
So, here’s video of Nevin Griffith (and here’s the brief scouting report from last month):

Friday’s minor league roundup:

  • Jacksonville 8, Birmingham 1
    • Dayan Viciedo went 2-for-3 with a walk and an error.
    • Jordan Danks went 0-for-5 with a strikeout; C.J. Retherford went 1-for-5 with a double.
    • John Shelby singled, walked and threw out a runner at the plate.
    • Clevelan Santeliz gave up two runs on three hits in an inning of work, striking out two.
  • Salem 6, Winston-Salem 4 (10 innings)
    • Brent Morel went 2-for-5 with two strikeouts.
    • Justin Greene went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts.
    • Seth Loman hit a solo shot; Dale Mollenhauer had two singles, a double and a walk.
    • Jacob Rasner pitched well: 6 1/3 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K.
    • Nathan Jones struggled, allowed two runs on two hits and a walk while retiring just one batter. He also allowed an inherited runner to score.
  • Billings 4, Great Falls 1
    • Jarrett Coker struck out 10 batters over 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on one swing.
    • Johny Celis went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
    • Trayce Thompson went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts.

Seem’s like he has a 3/4 arm angle like Hudson. From your scouting report, it sounds as if he only as 2 pitches (fast and curve). Sounds like he’s more suitable for the bullpen. Bring him up now, he can’t do any worse than Jenks, Thornton, Linebrink or Dotel πŸ™‚
Thanks for sharing the video!
