Brewers at Giants – Scottsdale, AZ – Giants Training Complex at the intersection of Hayden and Camelback Road
Braden Webb (RHP) Milwaukee Brewers – I have seen Webb twice and came away with similar thoughts each time. The raw stuff is tantilizing. The fastball sat easily around 94-95 and touched 96. His slider was in the 84-87 range with above above average movement. The same could be said for his mid 70s curveball. The problem is his command causes everything to play down. Even the fastball command was sporadic.
Marcos Diplan (RHP) Milwaukee Brewers – I was let down by Diplan. I first became aware of him in 2015 when I read an optimistic and glowing report, which said he touched 97-98 with a 60 potential slider. This fall, he was in the 92-94 range (touching 96), and he looked to have no idea where it was going. He was unable to find the strikezone with any consistency. His 85-87 slider was equally inconsistent. It’s a bad look at the moment.
