Starting Pitcher | Creston Kokanee
Birch can get into trouble with walks, and there's concern about him being able to maintain his stuff over the whole season. Sometimes I wish he'd just give up on throwing the changeup, it's like a BP ball! Never a hard thrower, Birch now has games when he can't hit 85 MPH with his fastball. He attacks lefties and righties with similar success.
Defense & Hitting
Birch does an average job of holding runners. Birch is agile on the mound, though he makes needless errors when his concentration wanders. Birch is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Birch has some pop in his swing.
