Akeel Morris has shown flashes of brilliance this season. On Sunday, Morris had his best outing this season allowing just one hit over six shutout frames. Morris walked three and struck out four.
The 18-year old Morris leads the Appalachian League with 40 strikeouts and a K-rate of 12.13 K/9. He is third in the APPYL with a strikeout % of 30.3 and second in opponents batting average of .179.
On the downside, Morris is last in the APPYL with a BB% of 12.9 and his 5.16 BB/9 is second worst in the league.
Effectively wild or dominant stuff? I would say it is a combination of the two.
Craig Missigman (37th round) was outstanding in his first professional start. The 17 year old Missigman pitched four scoreless innings, giving up only one hit, one walk, and struck out three.
