|2015 Panini Elite 69/75|
Mike Foltynewicz made his second Spring start today and looked really good by all accounts. I wasn't at the game nor was it televised but he had a solid line.
He didn't report early with the rest of the pitchers due to having to rehab from surgery. At the end of last season he had a blood clot in his shoulder and had to go for emergency surgery, having a rib removed in the process. I'm excited to see what Folty can do in his first full season this year. There's no radar gun at the Astros Spring stadium but according to the Braves radio guys his fastball looked sharp and he got a couple guys looking on the curve.

For a guy that can hit 100 I think the lack of radar may have been good for him to get feel back for his pitches as he gets stretched out in anticipation to be the Braves 5th starter. They won't need one until April 12th so it looks like he should be ready by then.
Well I've already written this much about the guy may as well make this the official 2016 Folty Hype Post. Here's the rest of my Folty autos.
Here's his full career stats from 2016 Opening Day.
Anyone your looking forward to seeing play for your club this year, or returning from injury? Thanks as always for reading my ramblings.
