In other news, Schaum
(scroll way down) is speculating that Montgomery may give up on his curveball, in favor of a slider/cutter.
edit: this is one of those things that barely merits a mention since we tend to sign a zillion latin teens in the hopes that a few will pan out, but what the hell. This might be the first and last time you'll ever see the name Sandy Garces. We signed him today
from the dominican. He was trying to make it as both a CF hitter and/or a pitcher. His bat wasn't working out, but he's got a curve and a 91 mph fastball, so the Royals decided to sign him as a lefty pitcher.
Does this mean he'll be in the pen in the big's?
