Mike Connolly25歲,一個剛從小聯盟體系流浪到獨立聯盟Atlantic League的左投,

也是繼前年失敗的Yorkin Ferreras後,牛隊的第一個左投。

而從越高level越退步的成績也就能夠看出,M.Connolly之所以到現在還沒辦法上大聯盟的原因。

 

就查到的資料來看,Mike Connolly的球速並不快,大約在85-87mile137-140)間,

變化球有變速球、曲球跟滑球,控球的評價還算不錯。同時,他也是一個飛球型的投手。

 

至於關於這位曾經在2004年被BABaseball America)評為海盜隊第26號新秀的評論部份,

資料其實並不算多──至少比他的弟弟Jon Connolly還少XD

 

兩則在BA上面的評論:

A:  John Perrotto: Connolly and Harts both are talented enough to eventually pitch in the majors. They'll make it on different strengths, Harts on his lively fastball and Connolly on his command.

Connolly(與Harts)都有足夠的資質能夠最終在大聯盟中投球。他們有不同的長處,Hart是他很有尾勁的快速球,而Connolly則是他的控球。

Wayne from from Maine asks:

Is lefty Mike Connolly sneaking up on the prospect radar?

左投Mike Connolly悄悄的變成了值得期待的潛力新人了嗎?

A:  John Perrotto: He certainly is. The little guy knows how to pitch.

他當然是,這個小個子的傢伙懂得如何投球。

這是在他A+層級獲得的評價:

He a smallish lefty (listed at 6' 170#) but isn't a soft tosser. Don't get me wrong , he's no flame-thrower, but moves his fastball (I'd guess it's high 80's) in and out and gets a breaking pitch over. He had a really good year under the radar and I think he deserves to move into serious prospect status.

雖然他是一個小個子的左投(資料上是183公分77公斤)但不是一個軟投派投手。別搞錯了,他不是一個火球派投手,但是他在內外角移動著他的快速球(我猜大概是接近但不到90mile)然後再投他的變化球。他有一個表現非常良好的一年,我認為他值得被列入積極的潛力新秀狀態。

Connolly hasn't lost a game in over a month. He's one of those guys who might have some difficulty at AA because he relies a lot on movement and placement; he doesn't just blow guys away. We'll see what appens.

Connolly這一個月來沒有輸過任何一場。他是那種可能會在AA遇到困難的投手,因為他大量的依賴他的尾勁與進壘點;他並沒有完全壓制打者。我們會看看到時會發生什麼事。

這是他在2A被升到3A時,他2A的投手教練對他的評論:

"I think it's a 180-degree turn," Altoona pitching coach Ray Searage told the Altoona Mirror regarding Connolly's improvement. "The thing that Michael has is aptitude. He's very coachable. He can absorb information and apply it."

「我想這是一個180度的轉變,」Atloona投手教練Ray Searage提到關於Connolly的進步時說到。「Mike的性格(個性)很好。他非常的受教。他可以吸收資訊並且執行他。」

最後,來個不負責任的預測:

假使以他小聯盟生涯局數最多的2A來代表他的投球成績的話(樣本數越高一般來說越),

人手上有的「興農及統一在中職8-18年洋投的成績」數據來轉換計算,

他在中職的成績可能會是:

【後記】

Mike Connolly的手是有開過刀的,不過是在2004年時動的,是小手術而且後來恢復的狀況很好。

Double-A Altoona lefthander Mike Connolly had arthroscopic elbow surgery, but should be ready for spring training.

2A左投Mike Connolly動了肘關節鏡手術,但春訓應該沒問題。
