SCOUT'S REPORT: "Somebody with the White Sox [who traded Wells last December] is going to lose his job, because this kid can really pitch. He can command three pitches and has a sneaky fastball that catches a lot of hitters off guard."
WELLS ON WELLS: "I have a tendency to stay compact on the mound, but at the last second I want to put a little extra on my pitches. You have to hone your skills to the point where you can actually go out there, relax and do it."
JASON JENNINGS, Rockies
SCOUT'S REPORT: "He's not the kind of guy who blows you away. I keep hearing about his mound maturity. He's 23 going on 33. He knows how to pace himself, how to handle the pressure."
JENNINGS ON JENNINGS: "The key is this: Don't get rattled. Forget that you're facing Mike Piazza or Mo Vaughn. Once you aren't intimidated by pitching in a big stadium against the best athletes in the world, you'll be just fine."
VICENTE PADILLA, Phillies
