Good to see Ty Blach getting his due. Like Clayton Blackburn, he is not flashy, just effective. That part about not missing the strike zone gets some attention eventually. The Tom Glavine comps are looking better and better. I wouldn't mind seeing him in the bigs this year, except that means the Giants are likely out of the playoff hunt.
Expect Blach to make some noise in camp next year and possibly be a solid contributor by 2016.
from Bleacher Report:
Ty Blach, LHP:
2014 Season Stats: 18 GS, 7-4, 2.95 ERA, 22 BB, 63 K, 97.2 IP
The left-hander pitched another gem for Triple-A Richmond, going a full seven innings and allowing two earned runs. Blach added seven strikeouts and no walks and was truly dominant on the mound. It's the first time in 11 starts that Blach has lasted at least seven innings.
Among the Giants' top pitching prospects, Blach possesses the most control, as demonstrated by his last start. Unlike many minor leaguers, Blach simply doesn't miss the strike zone.
Blach has plenty of competition but plenty of upside.
