So Danny Hultzen will be making his first start today in Colorado Springs (great place for a soft landing) and I’ll be watching it via the MiLB.tv feed and live blogging about it here. This is my first venture in to MiLB.tv so this should be a good learning experience.
Hultzen has absolutely dominated in Jackson so far this year, and has really dominated after struggling with his control early. He hasn’t given up a run so far in June, and he’s averaging more than a strikeout per inning for the season, and has taken care of his walk problem to a large extent so far in June.
At the beginning of the season I called Danny Hultzen the Mariners No. 2 prospect. That’s still true, because Taijuan Walker has Felix Hernandez potential, but Hultzen will make the big leagues much sooner. I predict he’ll start a handful of games in Tacoma, and if all goes well he’ll be in the bigs before September.
