fantasybaseballcafe right here top prospects has Slowey at #61 and saysBuilding off of a low 90s fastball, Slowey’s change-up and curveball balance out his repertoire.
are his change-up and curveball not major league pitches?
First off, his fastball PEAKS around 91, but is consistently in the 89-91 range.
Second, as I posted earlier in this thread, the Baseball America profile of him this year states that he throws approximately NINETY percent fastballs. He may have other pitches, but they aren't developed and he obviously doesn't use them very much.
I think the Twins are taking the correct approach with Garza. When he finally does get the call, he'll have had several months to work on and improve his secondary pitches, and with his heat, that's going to help to make him a tremendous pitcher.
