5/5/5 in low A ball!
Matt Purke, LHP, Nationals (Low-A Hagerstown): 5 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 BB, K. Official pro debut; stuff was way off with 86-90 mph fastball and little command.
The 2011 "thrilling" draft not looking good at this moment. I realize there is a long time to go before these guys truly crap out, but...be nice to see something out of them before 2012 is over. Impatient, i guess.
You cannot act like Strasburg and Harper are normal draft picks. They are considered by some two be the two best draft prospects in a generation (I'm holding back on hyperbole).
Matt Skole has been very good and Goodwin and Meyer have both flashed promise. Kylin Turnbull had a very good start in his last outing. Even Caleb Ramsey has played well. Taylor Hill has been decent.Way too early to call the class a bust, even if Purke and Rendon haven't done anything yet.
Intriguing start by Purke tonight:4.2 IP 5 H 2 ER 3 BB 8 K
any word on his velocity or how his shoulder felt?
@bkerr32: Hagerstown's Matt Purke placed on 7-day DL with shoulder stiffness #Nats
