Found May 21, 2013 on Brewers Bar:
Yesterday, I did a short piece about a feature that minor league analyst/writer/scout Nathaniel Stoltz published in Big Leauges Magazine that focused on some Nashville Sounds players. As it turns out, Nathaniel has a nice youtube channel featuring some plate appearances and pitching performances by the Brewers Triple-A players, as well! Really nice clarity, here, for seeing movement on the pitches, and swings taken by batters. Here's a video of Sacramento River Cats LHP Andrew Werner pitching to Sounds outfielder, Caleb Gindl. The fun thing about this is that Stoltz noticed Gindl looks quite a bit like Matt Stairs! Referring to body-type, of course...no one is Matt Stairs. I still wish Stairs hadn't retired : / There are a lot of really fun prospects to watch. Check out Sonny Gray, the former Vandy pitcher drafted in the 1st round of the 2011 draft by the A's. Here, he's striking out Khris Davis. And Josh Prince... - can't wait to watch Gray in the future...

Brewers, Gallardo look to build off positives despite loss
