LHPs Jimmy Gobble and Joe Saunders pitched as expected this spring after being ranked as the top two prospects in Virginia entering the season. Gobble added velocity and threw in the low 90s while averaging more than two strikeouts an inning. He's more projectable than Saunders, who doesn't throw quite as hard and didn't pitch as well as a year ago. College is not a major factor for either.
