Corey Black, plus more Staten Island guys
Went out for another look at Staten Island last night, this time to see Corey Black, the Yankees' fourth-rounder from this year, and some more of guys like Claudio Custodio and Ravel Santana.
On one view, it's pretty easy to see that Black has a future as a pretty darn good reliever. He worked from 92-95 miles per hour for the first three innings before his velocity dipped to the 89-91 range.
He also showed off a tight if inconsistent slider, and flashed a very nice change-up with both fade and run. You can see the change-up on first pitch of the at-bat against Anthony Vega below.
Of course, Black wasn't the only player I shot. I also got some more of Santana, Taylor Dugas, Matt Snyder and Evan DeLuca. You can see all those videos below.
