    Jim Callis today:

    "I've enjoyed three days of Arizona Fall League action as I write this, and so far the most impressive prospect I've seen is Yankees right-hander Albert Abreu. Acquired from the Astros in the Brian McCann trade last offseason, Abreu displayed three plus pitches -- including a fastball that reached 98 mph -- in a Tuesday duel with Pirates righty Mitch Keller."

    Keller is the #18 overall MLB prospect, FWIW.

    From the game link in that article:

    Abreu has the potential for three plus pitches, and all three were working against the Desert Dogs. Of his eight strikeouts, three came on fastballs, three on breaking balls and two on a changeup. He threw 33 fastballs, 19 for strikes, averaging 96 mph and never dipping below 94.

    Abreu was very efficient at locating his secondary pitches, delivering 15 of 21 breaking balls and seven of nine changeups in the zone. He generated five swings-and-misses with breaking balls and four with changeups, compared to three with his fastball. He's known for throwing both a curveball and slider, and most of his 82-84 mph breaking balls against the Desert Dogs had curve shape.
