Audio: @MBraves Pitching Coach Dennis Lewallyn on Alex Wood
Leading up to Alex Wood’s start on Sunday afternoon, Kyle Tait caught up with Mississippi Braves pitching coach Dennis Lewallyn to talk about Wood’s progression as a prospect (and a bonus question on how Luis Ayala’s rehab has gone so far). Hear his thoughts below:
How is Wood’s curveball developing?
What was the difference between his last start (3 R, 2 ER over 6 IP against Huntsville) and his previous seven starts (2 ER over 38.0 IP)?
Do you think he’s ready to pitch in Atlanta?
What more does Wood need to learn with the M-Braves before making the jump?
(Wood actually grew up in North Carolina and went to Georgia. Close enough, he just averaged them out)
Is Luis Ayala ready to return to the Atlanta bullpen after his two rehab appearances with Mississippi?
Listen live today to Wood’s start against the Suns beginning at 12:30 PM on 103.9 WYAB and online at MississippiBraves.com.
