Minor League Spring Training :

Mental performance, defensive drills, batting, side bullpens and weight training were the practice sessions of the day.  There were also two three inning simulated games.

Batting Practice :

Micah Yonamine is having a very good hitting camp thus far, was tattooing the baseball again today in BP.

Side Bullpens :

Six pitchers threw side bullpen sessions on the seven mounds in front of the David Montgomery Training Center, pitchers who threw today - Andrew Baker, Griff McGarry, Francisco Morales, Jaydenn Estanista, Matt Osterberg & Estibenzon Jimenez

Simulated Games :

Roberts  Field :

Pitchers : James McArthur ( 2 innings ), Alex Garbrick, Chase Webster, Carlos Francisco & Eiberson Castellano

My notes :

James McArthur was strong, had good break on secondaries and giddy up on the express.  Alex Garbrick also pitched well in his inning.  I continue to be impressed with Eiberson Castellano - big arm stuff and also has a slow hook that comes out of same arm slot.

Ashburn Field :

Pitchers : Wesley Moore, Malik Binns, Jose Pena,  Alex McKenney, Andrew Walling & Cam Wynne

My notes :

Lefty Andrew Walling ( un-drafted free agent signed 8/1/22 from Mississippi State ) impressed, mid nineties fastball with swing and miss movement.

Malik Binns threw a perfect inning with one strikeout.  He had really good command and snapped off a knee buckling bender to end the frame.

Lefty Wesley Moore struck out two of the three batters he faced.   Jose Peña had good life on his fastball and produced a swing and miss strikeout with his splitter.

Malik Binns pitching to Justin Crawford

Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
