Ran across the following in a Fay article in the Enquirer a few days back:
“He’s really thrown well,” O’Brien said. “We’ve never seen him throw with this velocity.”
Belisle, 24, has gone from throwing 88 to 90 mph to hitting 92 consistently. Belisle already had good movement on his fastball and an above-average breaking ball.
If Belisle has just finally regained his velocity from his back injury that caused him to miss the 2001 season, he could make a big jump forward this season. At just 24, he’ll be someone to keep an eye on this season at AAA Louisville.
