We've only got one real scouting report from the Smokies for April, but it was a really, really good one so I'm going to post it here pretty much as I received it. It makes for good off-day reading. It comes from David Catterton, and he saw the Smokies play at West Tennessee on April 22.
I will take this time to remind everyone here that we still need more reports like this one. If you talk to me ahead of time like David did, we can discuss what you could be looking for. With a team like the Smokies or Daytona, we're still pretty much blank slates, so we're looking for pretty much everything there. Iowa and Peoria can be more targeted.
I am going to add that David was going off the stadium radar gun, and I think I speak for him when I say both of us believe it was slow. Chen's not a hard-thrower, but he doesn't throw that softly, for example.
