Lansing's Chase Lirette arrives

Selected in the 16th round of the 2006 draft, 24 year old RHP Chase Lirette played in the GCL for the Jays last season - after taking a year off due to injury - but did nothing to impress. This season is entirely different, as Chase has come on strong even if he is slightly older for LoA pitching and is showing why he may be able to make some headway. He has yet to allow more than 2 earned runs in 6 starts and has struck out 24 in 33 innings pitched while only walking 8. He is 3-0 with a 1.87 ERA and could get a promotion in the near future since he has proven dominant so quickly. He's one guy to keep an eye on in Lansing and should draw some attention from BAs 2010 rankings.
