Big Performance: Brent Honeywell is a repeat featured player on 'Heels Watch', turning in another stellar performance this week for the Charlotte Stone Crabs. Through 6 shutout innings Friday, he allowed just one hit and a walk, striking out 6. The Rays top pitching prospect spoke about the start later that night:
Relied on: 'The Fastball. That's the pitch the pitcher has to rely on. But I was in and out, so all of my offspeed stuff played off of it.
More Comfort with Curveball? Yeah, I am. Especially last night. It was the best it has ever been in my eyes.
I was in control all night long. And I always feel good because I'm doing what I have always wanted to do. I just want to pitch. And it always feels like Christmas every fifth day.
First hit: On Saturday, Pinstriped Prospects tweeted that Trey Amburgey (@amburgey_trey) had his 'first base hit' with the Staten Island Yankees (he'd previously played in the Gulf Coast League). The Yankees 2015 13th round pick hit an RBI double.
