Dellin Betances, Others Bounce Back In AFL

Dellin Betances was rocked in his first start down in the Arizona Fall League, which was not much different then what happened to him all season long. It was his first start since being placed on the disabled list with shoulder fatigue and inflammation so it was not exactly how you would like to see him bounce back. He took a step in the right direction last night thought for the Scottsdale Scorpions as he threw two scoreless innings with 4 K's while hitting 95 mph on the gun. Dellin also reported that he added a slider to his collection a couple of weeks ago in the Instructional Leagues so if he can harness that it would give him four pitches to work with.

Slade Heathcott, David Adams, and Austin Romine have all been hitting the ball well down in the AFL as well which is very encouraging. They are all hitting the ball well, taking their walks, and staying healthy which is more important then anything for guys like Slade and Austin especially. Slade was eve seen playing in RF for the first time ever because he is a CF by trade. David Adams also made an appearance or two back at 2B after being moved to 3B this season for defensive purposes, to get him on the fast track to the majors, and not that they would ever admit it but to have insurance for Alex Rodriguez if he can find a way to possibly decline any faster.
