By The Baseball Beginnings Guy

Here’s a fresh look at UCLA’s LHP Rob Rasmussen working in an inter-squad game recently at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Coming off his strong summer in the Cape Cod League, where Baseball Beginnings caught up to him for this Q&A and obtained this video of him pitching in the All-Star game a Fenway Park, Rasmussen looks like he has kept the ball rolling in the Fall. This was fastballs and change-ups only in these two innings. His fastball was 90-93 with plenty of 91s and pretty consistent command and life for this early in the season. The change-up worked at 81 with decent command. Rasmussen didn’t use his curveball, his main weapon. Good outing here for a guy with a chance to be a first rounder in 2010.
