Hey guys, I’ll be making my 1st trip of the season tonight to McCormick field in Asheville to see the Tourists take on the Lexington Legends.
The Tourists are a Rockies farm club and they’ll have Parker French on the mound. I saw French last week in Greenville. He throws a high 80’s 2 seem fastball that runs in on righties and a slider. He also threw a few pitches at 93-94 I think they were 4 seemers.
The Legends are a Royals farm club, and they’ll be throwing high profile lefty Foster Griffin, he was taken at the end of the 1st round in the 2014 draft. Griffin had a bumpy 1st full season, but he pitched better in the 2nd half and he’s off to a pretty good start in 2016. This will be my 1st look at him.
I’ll be live Tweeting throughout the game @AshevilleSoxFan and you can expect a Griffin write up in the next couple of days,
