Melancon impressive

Just watched Mark Melancon face Derek Jeter, Robbie Cano, Austin Jackson and Austin Romine.

Wow. 30 pitches and there were four swing and misses. He also broke Cano’s bat. There were two balls put in play, singles by Jeter and Romine.

Melancon’s fastball was as advertised. He also threw five curveballs and all but one were strikes. It’s a big curve, too.

After his TJ surgery, the Yankees used him carefully last season. But he’s ready to be unleashed now.
