Another Pitching Prospect!!

He looks a little old to still be in Double-A, but this Pettitte guy looked pretty damn good to me last night.

4 shutout innings, only 2 hits allowed, no walks, and 4 Ks.  That'll get the job done 25 hours a day, 8 days a week.  His fastball lived in the high-80s, but he can locate it well to both sides of the plate, and his cutter and curveball can also both be thrown anywhere at any time to induce weak grounders and swings and misses.

It was the first I've heard of this Pettitte character pitching for Trenton this year, but something tells me if he keeps pitching like that he's definitely got a future in the Yankee organization.
