Video: Cade Cavalli vs. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre


A quick review of Cade Cavalli's start at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday. The final line for NGN's top-rated Nats prospect: 6IP, 3R, 8H, 4K, 5BB.


Pros

  • He didn't have his A stuff, but somehow managed a quality start against a good lineup.

  • Half of the hits he allowed comprised of a bunt single and THREE choppers over the infield, because apparently this game was played on concrete.

  • He finished stronger than he started.

  • Glove-side command was pretty good.

  • They were clearly working on arm-side fastballs, a noted issue, and he barely threw any changeups if any. It seemed like a day to work on weaknesses, so the final line is not surprising.

Cons

  • Five walks in six innings is bad no matter how you slice it.

  • Didn't throw the breaking ball for strikes as often as he has been recently.

  • Got bailed out with two outs recorded on 3-0 pitches, plus another wiped out on the bases thanks to Donovan Casey's rocket arm.

  • Was behind in the count so regularly that he barely got to use his secondary stuff.
