In the spirit of high school draft picks, I chose Clayton Blackburn to interview last week. The Giants No.11 prospect came off a great season in 2012 with Low-A Augusta and is now part of a stacked pitching rotation in San Jose.
The kid had a great April, but a rough May. Find out why and what new pitch he's looking to really nail down in the near future: "Ten Minutes or Less" with San Francisco Giants No.11 prospect Clayton Blackburn
Here's some footage of him pitching on May 31 against Stockton. Not his best outing, but his curveball looked nice and lots of swings and misses on his two-seam / changeup combo.
Another interview coming in the next few weeks. What would you guys like to see? Fresno? or San Jose. Please feel free to comment with suggestions for players and specific questions you'd like to have asked.
Happy Orange Friday.
