Kramer Sneed


Recommended Posts

I just noticed that he's quietly putting up strong numbers as a starter so far at IE.

61 innings (6/start), 1.07 WHIP, 58/16 Ks/BBs, sub 3.00 ERA, only 4 HRs allowed 

 

What is his pitch repetoire?    Does he have a future in MLB?

Age 24 in the Cal League is older than average, but not prohibitively so.

He was just drafted by the Skanks in 2010.

 

And of course, he was acquired for Mr. Pop-Up Out Of Alignment, and is a lefty.

 

Also saw that the Skanks originally had him starting in 2010 and his control was solid. 

Then they made him a reliever in 2011, and for the next two years, his control suffered.

The Halos made him a starter again in 2013, and his control is solid again.

Weird how that can happen

The Angels went for undiscovered upside in the Wells trade because it was clear that with the money changing hands, top prospects weren't going to be on the table.  It was their plan to put Sneed in the bullpen actually.  He has a good FB for a lefty, sitting 92+ (average lefties are 89-90, average righties are 91-92) and an exceptionally hard slider which sits 84+.  

 

For whatever reason unknown to me, they decided to slot him back into the rotation.  From what I understand his balls moves quite a bit.  Plus he's tall and left handed, and as someone really smart once told me, if he's tall and left handed and pitches, all he really needs is a pulse and he'll be a major leaguer. 

 

It remains doubtful Sneed will be in a major league rotation, but I do think he'll be a major leaguer someday.
