This picture screams “mad hops,” doesn’t it?
Jays prospect Dan Norris– who… I like the look of this guy– will start 2013 at Lansing (per the Jays’ minor league roster list at Batter’s Box) despite turning in an fugly-looking season last year in stops at Bluefield and Vancouver.
That… uh… that might be because Norris, who is listed at 6’2, appears to be a touch more athletic than your average hat-wearing bearded guy– not that I would know anything about that. Or, at least, that’s what it appears like from one of the most recent photos on his Instagram page. So maybe the Jays think he’s going to be able to work through whatever issues he had with command and delivery (reports were that his stuff was still terrific).
Check it out below the jump…
The caption reads “Right handed. In Chuck Taylors.”
Now I’m no Michael Jackson, but that seems like some impressive vertical in a pair of Chucks, no?
