Recently, I ran across an interview with one of Mark’s favorite Cubs prospects, Donald Veal. Veal pitched great last year in A and high A ball.
In two minor league seasons, his numbers look like this:
12-8 with a 2.37 ERA in 37 starts. He has a WHIP of 1.13 and a K’s/9 IP of 10.30. The concern I have is the 4.73 BB / 9 IP, but hopefully that will continue to improve.
In the meantime, take a look at the interview from Project Prospect on Donald Veal. I’ll try to catch up with him this season, assuming he is pitching for the Tenn Smokies (AA) this season.
