Check out this nice article by Bill Whitehead of TCPalm.com where he talks with St Lucie Mets Pitcher Darin Gorski who is having a nice season racking up the strikeouts.

Thanks for posting this!
A couple things from the article stand out. First, he’s throwing harder than he did when he was drafted at age 21. That’s awesome. Second, his slider is a plus-pitch for him. There’s nothing wrong with a lefty that has a plus slider.
Gorski has always had a great strikeout/walk ratio, but this is the first year his strikeout/innings pitched ratio has been above 1. He’s split time between starting and relieving, but eventually he should end up in the bullpen. A fastball & slider lefty that misses a lot of bats has a real chance to find himself in a major league bullpen one day, even if its just as a LOOGY. Gorski is definitely a guy to keep an eye on, among others capable of fulfilling a similar bullpen role someday.

Darin Gorski? Who the heck is Darin Gorski?
Kudos to this site for keeping us up to date on potential prospects down on the farm. Gives us some hope for the future.
