Now Commenting On:

I've been a little remiss on the box-score diving with respect to Kingsport the last two days, but I wanted to point out a few things.

- C Tomas Nido can hit. The 18-year old had two hits both Sunday and Monday and is up to .310/.383/.452 with five walks against eight strikeouts in 13 games. He has a long way to go as a receiver, but owns an average or better arm.

- Two Arms to WatchTwo guys who will have a really good chance to appear in the back half of my off-season Top 41 prospects list, Corey Oswalt and Chris Flexen made solid starts for the K-Mets this week.

Oswalt: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K.  Oswalt, is a recent convert from the infield, but even in his first few starts had scouts thinking he could stick at the back end of a rotation with a fastball that was approaching average and some projection on his curveball.

Flexen: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 6 K. I really like his arm as I wrote about here.
