Ellis:

Ryan Buch has maybe the most powerful arm in the ‘pen. He hit 96 on the stadium gun but struggled with his control, walking two and punching two out. His stay in Kannapolis will be dictated by his K/BB ratio…

Greenhouse @ THT:

Baseball America on Dan Hudson and others

Badler:

Prospect Star Of Camp: Dan Hudson is what he is, solid but not spectacular. The 23-year-old righthander came into camp showing exactly what he showed in breezing through four levels of the minor leagues en route to Chicago in 2009, flashing a low-90s fastball, a solid-average changeup and an inconsistent slider with average tilt at times and more sweeping action at others. All of Hudson’s stuff plays up because of his advanced feel for pitching, and it shouldn’t be too long before he returns to Chicago after opening the year with Triple-A Charlotte.

He also touches on Sergio Santos, and Dayan Viciedo.
