Watch out for Zink, he just continues to get better and better each time we see him. He ran a 7 flat on a very slow track in Ft Myers, he's run much better times before. He threw 89 from the outfield and came back to throw 89 from the mound. He shows excellent hitting ability with power potential. He has a good athletic baseball body. There's not much he doesn't do well on a baseball field. As good a player he is, we might like him best on the mound. He projects to throw in the 90s. His arm works without much tension and its a quick arm stroke. His breaking ball spins well and shows lots of promise. And he has a good feel for the changeup. He's a very tough competitive athlete with a lot of talent. He likes to play and it shows. Zink could get some serious draft interest and he should because of his talent and projectability. He's going to just keep getting better. If not he will make someone a potential all-american college player.
