Pitching Notes: Jacob deGrom, Tyler Pill, Steven Matz and Rafael Montero

1. RHP Jacob deGrom was promoted from Savannah to the advanced-A Florida State League Thursday. Yohan Almonte was sent down from St. Lucie to Savannah. Despite his age (24) deGrom is a real interesting prospect. I hope to have more up on him this afternoon.

2. RHP Tyler Pill was removed after only two innings from Thursday’s start in the FSL with tightness in his upper forearm.

3. LHP Steven Matz was supposed to throw Thursday to test his tight shoulder, but the KMets were rained out, and so everything was pushed back a day.

4. Baseball America has Rafael Montero on their weekly Prospect Hot Sheet at #13 after his 7.2 innings of no-hit baseball.
