    Anderson with 6 walks in 3 innings tonight. What is it with our pitchers and control?

    Got make at least a brief mention of Claudio Custodio, who threw four hitless innings for Mississippi tonight.

    When signed, he initially was sent to Rome, where the 28-year-old clearly outclassed his opposition (two games, two wins, four innings, two hits, no walks and five strikeouts).
    Promoted to Mississippi, he has now worked five games, 11.1 innings, five hits, no runs, two walks, eight strikeouts.

    He is only 5-10, 155, so he is obviously not a big flame-thrower.

    Anderson"s control issues are getting a little alarming. A BB/9 over 7 on the year now.

    It could possibly be they are having him work on other pitches. Itís really hard to tell. Sometimes they take away a players best pitches in a game to work on secondary stuff. Heís normally not had these problems, so itís a tad early to worry about it....yet.

    I heard 13 of Riley’s homers were off guys who were working on things. Maybe he isn’t as good as we thought.

    Point being, we throw this “working on things” around a lot and it just starts to become an easy excuse for being bad. How many of our other prospects who were just working on things finally made it. What Fried maybe and his success was from the pen by his own words.

    And maybe Anderson is working on something. But honestly I think it is just poor control right now and he should be dinged for it. I would tell all my starters in the minors. You have 2 consecutive starts with 4 or more walks then we skip your next two turns and you can pitch out of the pen for that time.

    i think he could be hurt. he's never displayed anything near this bad, but i'll still give it plenty of time to work out. he improved on it a lot from 17 to 18 so this is kind of odd.

    Probably not a coincidence they sent him down and lined his start date up with Folty.

    It was mentioned in passing that he was tipping pitches. If that was the issue, then no doubt he got lit up. Stuff was legit earlier on... just was having trouble locating.

    Much more likely to happen in AA than AAA. Iím not saying it isnít just bad control....but that could at least be a possibility.

    I think that Anderson struggling with an injury is more likely than him working on something. The excuse of working on things is thrown around way too much.

    I honestly don't expect Anderson's BB rate to stay at over 7 per 9 unless he's hurt. Right now he's had back to back outings where he's walked a lot of guys so we're looking at it when it's artificially high. He's due a regression to the mean and should see his walk rate drop.

    That being said, his continued struggle with command is becoming more and more of a concern. He's now walked 132 batters in 277.2 IP in his minor league career. That's 4.28 BB/9 for his career. For context, among qualifying SP last year, only 3 had a BB/9 higher than 4.28. They were Julio Teheran (4.30), Sean Newcomb (4.45), and Lucas Giolito (4.67).

    You can't write up a 4.28 BB/9 over nearly 280 IP as due to him "working on something". You can't, as Kiley suggested a while back, write it off on bad minor league umpires. Anderson has a walk problem that could severely limit his potential.

    Riley hit a grad slam, dropped the bat, and walked off the field saying "later b*tches".

    Wright was not executing pitches at all in his brief MLB stint. I expected him to grab hold of that rotation spot and run with it, but he clearly needed to be sent to AAA.

    There's still some BP risk with Wright, but he hasn't reached that point yet.
