Ty Buttrey

Round 4 by Red Sox in 2012


* Round 4: Ty Buttrey, RHP, Providence High (SC): Considered one of the top 40 players in the entire draft, Boston gladly scooped him up in the fourth after he slid due to signability concerns. A highly projectable 19-year-old, Buttrey's fastball already hits 96 miles per hour. He complements his heater with a very good knuckle curveball and a developing changeup. He had been committed to the University of Arkansas.

I am really excited about this kid. Obviously, he's a long way off, but he's probably my favorite pick of this year's crop. I'm looking forward to watching him develop.

I'm bumping this because I was wondering if anyone knew anything about his potential debut? SoxProspects has him on GCL roster, MiLB.com backs it up. Hopefully we get to see him soon because I am intrigued by anyone who can throw 96 at age 18.

Funny story about Buttrey being banned from HS graduation ceremonies because of the draft: http://sports.yahoo....-165707585.html

Of course, 24 hours later, after the story got traction, the school principal wisely realized she was about to be embarrassed on national TV (as James Roper might say), and reversed her decision: http://sports.yahoo....-180126408.html.

Buttrey debuted for the GCL affiliate on Aug 1, pitched one inning in relief striking out 2, walking none, hitting a batter and giving up no hits. I am not sure why but he has not appeared again in a game.

That seems like relatively good news.  It was a bit of a bummer that he didn't make a full season team, but placing in Lowell rather than the GCL suggests they feel he is advanced enough to go against the college draftees and GCL graduates who mostly populate the NYPL.  Perhaps his failure to make a full season team stemmed from a minor but persistent unreported injury or just a desire to limit his innings rather than being a sign that he wasn't ready for the jump.

Buttrey has been making some noise lately.


From soxprospects.com


Lowell never trailed in its 5-2 victory against the Brooklyn Cyclones (NYM). It was another excellent outing for right-hander Ty Buttrey (pictured), who allowed just one hit in five shutout innings, striking out three and walking one. Buttrey earned his third consecutive win and lowered his ERA to 2.79 in the process. Matt Maloney, making his way back from June 2012 Tommy John surgery, threw a scoreless inning of relief in his first rehab outing for the Spinners. The Lowell bats pounded out seven hits, including a pair by Kevin Mager. Aaron King went 1 for 4 and has now hit safely in all nine games since joining the Spinners.

Buttrey currently has 41.1 innings pitched over 9 games started (just over 5 IP per game) and is sitting pretty with a 2.61 ERA, 22 K and 15 BB.  The K rate is brought down by his early starts in which he struck out only 3 in his first 14.1 innings, but that walk rate is solid.  If he can get the strikeout up consistently, he'll be making some noise over the next year.
