Seeds are sown for Sowers

Rookie Jeremy Sowers had one bad inning Sunday afternoon, but showed great composure and poise for a kid his age. He has cruised through the minor leagues and looked like he was going to do the same against the Reds until the fourth inning. Sowers may not have dominant stuff and he may only top out at 90, but he as the ability to spot his pitches and has excellent command of the strike zone and he showed that Sunday. He is the type of pitcher that can work both sides of the plate with ease and can make hitters hit his pitch, even if he doesn’t throw hard. Sowers and the Tribe lost the game, but if nothing else, the young kid has a lot to build on and seems to have a bright future with the club.

“You never know what to expect when it’s a guy’s first start,” manager Eric Wedge said. “But his composure was fantastic. He repeated his delivery and threw well.”

The Indians’ pitching coach is equally as impressed.

“I was impressed with the way he handled himself,” Willis said. “That’s what’s going to allow him to move forward. It’s something inside that’s hard to learn.”
