Other Notes :


Today I watched some of the extended spring training scrimmage at Carpenter Complex … pitchers I saw throw today were RH Josh Gessner, RH Mark Potter, LH Anton Kutnesov and RH Victor Lopez. Potter went two innings while Kutnesov went three frames. The others went an inning each. Good to see Mark back on the hill on his way back from a brief injury setback. RH Chi-Ling Hsu was warming up when I left, I got hungry and had to go to Chick Fill-A for a samitch 🤓.
