Astros top pitching prospect throwing heat for Hooks

Posted: Updated:

Astros top pitching prospect Forrest Whitley will get his second start of the season Wednesday at Midland.

He appeared almost flawless in his season debut last week.

He told KRIS 6 sports director Alan Harwell that playing in the Texas League is very unique.

"In a way, it's almost easier than the lower levels because it's guys just not going up there hacking and swinging at everything," said Whitley.

"Players in this league actually have a process, and that helps as a pitcher. You can kind of pick up little things and being able to see that helps me at this level."
