Nick Neidert, RHP, Seattle (Profile) Level: Hi-A Age: 20 Org Rank: 3 Top 100: NR Line: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 8 K
Neidert is very advanced and will throw his breaking ball and changeup, both of which are already of big-league quality, in any count. He was 87-91 with his fastball in his final spring-training tune-up start and I wondered how his fastball would play in the Cal League but, at least last night, it didn’t matter. He was part of a combined one hit shutout of Stockton with righties Matt Walker and Lukas Schiradli, both of whom missed bats in the Midwest League last year, slamming the door over the final three innings.
