Spring Training Game 2: Nova, Killer B’s, Sanchez

It’s here, televised baseball. While it might not feel the same, it’s a milestone. Weather is changing, spring is coming, everyone loves Arod again, and real baseball is only a few weeks away. For now we get to watch the guys we haven’t seen in months take bats, and the guys we’ve never seen at all shutout Jimmy Rollins. The weather might not indicate it, but today feels a little closer to summer, a little closer to summer baseball.

  1. I like what I’m seeing from Banuelos so far. Can’t tell velocity, but he’s moving the fastball around and showing a good change. Haven’t seen any curveballs yet.

  2. Betances is in. Nice movement on the fastball, but has no idea where it’s going right now. Gary Sanchez catching him probably isn’t helping matters either.
