Diamondbacks’ prospect Brandon Pfaadt continues impressive spring

Pfaadt Keeps Pressure on in Battle for Final Rotation Spot

Pfaadt spoke about his developing rapport with Kelly. He pitched to him when Kelly went to Hillsboro for rehab in the past. Kelly has been catching all of Pfaadt’s bullpens and both his starts this spring as well. “He’s been awesome back there”, Pfaadt said. “He’s somebody I can rely on. I didn’t shake him off too much today. I trust his game plan too, trusting mine, putting them together”

Kelly is impressed with Pfaadt. “He’s got that unique four pitch mix, and the ball gets on guys. He’s got a good heater. We’re working on the breaking ball, landing more of those. He’s got a good head on his shoulders and knows what he needs to do. He prepares well. It’s really a joy to catch him.”
