- #Rockies Nolan Arenado at .381/420/.548 to start his "Sally" career. He turned 19 about a month and a half ago. Pretty impressive.
- Will be shooting plenty of video of him and Matzek. Not much to watch on that team other than the two of them.
- Had to come out for Nolan Arenado. Matzek in the stands with the radar gun. #Rockies
- Looks like Matzek goes Thursday in Savannah. I'l be there with bells on whatever that means. #Rockies
- Arenado's swing is built for lift. He really works his pull hand.
- #Rockies Arenado with a 390 Foot fly ball to straight away CF. Not often you see a guy this young show game power.
- #Rockies Nolan Arenado gets his hands extended on a double into the L-CF gap. Good, natural lift.
- Arenado's bat will have to carry him. He's not particularly athletic.
- Just booted a routine 5-4-3. RT @mikedeeez: @ScoutingtheSAL How athletic is Arenado? Will he be able to stay at 3rd?
- Arenado bounces one off the plate his first at bat. First impression is he will have a tough time at 3B.
- #Rockies Elizier Mesa is old for the Sally, but he's having a monster year and st smoked a leadoff HR.
- When Arenado makes hard contact, the crack of the bat makes a different sound than other guys at this level. #Rockies
