I love this line about the "project" otherwise known as Veal's bid to make the team:
[The Pirates] did not fully grasp how much of a project until new pitching coach Joe Kerrigan and minor league pitching coordinator Troy Buckley began working with him
Also a keeper:
his control issue was easy to detect with the occasional ball flying well over the catcher's head.
The coaches are talking about a more mechanical approach to pitching, while Veal is talking about being less mechanical. Things are off to a great start.
