Prospect tidbits: Bard’s slider, Fuentes, Kelly, Tazawa

Daniel Bard credits his recent lights-out-ness to a change of grip and approach on his slider.

Reymond Fuentes is being aggressive and having fun in the Gulf Coast League. He’s been able to show some hitting ability and athleticism down there, but has been caught on 4 of 10 steal attempts. Hot dog.

The same article cites Casey Kelly and Junichi Tazawa as among the best fielding pitchers in the Red Sox farm system. That’s a nice plus. Kelly has been switched out from pitching into a positional role for the rest of the year at Single -A Greenville.
