Darwinzon is playing in his first full season league this year. He has a fastball in the 90-93 range that has plus potential, a curveball that is average-plus and a fringe change up he is working on. He projects to be a 4-5 but he's added some velocity to his fastball and that could change.

In his first 2 starts, he has made quick competition of Greenville.

5ip 3h, 1er, 2bb, 7k
4ip 5h, 1er, 1bb, 8k.

Made 2 starts since the last update. In the first, he was cruising through 4 with a line of 4 ip, 2h, 1er, 2bb/5k. In the 5th, he gave up a single, hbp, walk, Grandslam to finish the game at 4.2ip, 4h, 5er, 2k/5k.

He followed that game up pitching 5 innings of no hit ball. He did give up an unearned run when he hit the first and only batter he faced in the 6th. 5ip, 0h, 1r, 0er, 2bb/5k and 2hbp.

His line for the year stands at an impressive 18.2ip, 12h, 25k/8bb, 2HRA. He has hit 4 batters. He currently has a K% of 30.9 and a bb% of 9.9%. Last year at a lower level, it was 25.9% and 16.1%.

I'd be really interested in seeing how hard he's throwing this year and how the curveball is coming along.

Punctuated equilibrium isn't uncommon in the low minors.

bosox79, I noticed you have taken on threads for a number of baby sox. Many thanks for doing so. I, and I am sure others, enjoy reading these updates.

He hasn't been very good since returning from the DL. 3 games, 12.2ip, 15h, 7er, 4bb/17k with 2 HRA. His last start was good though, having gone 5.0 ip, 3h, 5k.

28.5% K rate/12.3% BB rate for the year. Still an improvement over last years 25.9/16.1 but his control still needs some work.
