"It's amazing for a guy his age. It seems like he's on base almost every at-bat, and when he's not, it's a shock. He struck out the other day and everybody was shocked that he actually struck out."
"He's a natural, an absolute natural at his position. He has all the action down very well. You can see he has ball sense. He knows how to play guys, when guys are off a little too far. Instinctively, he gets over there."

"A guy like him, with his age . . . I said early on in camp that some things like this could happen with him. We just didn't want him to go back out there. We wanted him to get some treatment."
"Just talking to the doctors last night, he's just not going to have the fluids in him. No matter how well he feels today we'd be a little concerned about when he'd hit a wall out there."

"In talking with the doctors last night, he's not going to have the fluids in him. No matter how well he feels today, we'd be a little concerned about when he hit a wall out there. So, it's not the right thing to do."

"He threw fastballs to both sides of the plate, and he was pitching with confidence."

"It was a tough conversation to have with Casey."
"He threw a lot of fastballs early -- it was both sides of the plate -- and he was pitching with confidence. We didn't have too many good swings, and he pitched great. We got behind and didn't take many good swings at all."

"I wouldn't have double-switched and taken Hudson out of the game right there if we didn't have confidence in him. That was big for Andy, because he's the one guy that hasn't gotten a start. He feels like he's a contributor now. He feels a little more part of it."

"He's got a lot of deception to everything he does. You don't see a delivery like his. He's compact, yet he jumps at you. His rhythm is a little slower. Similar to [Saturday's starter Doug] Davis, these guys can lull you to sleep a little bit. Their delivery is a little bit longer and then the ball is on top of you. They're a little bit random where they throw the ball. It's tough to get a read on both those guys."

"He shows good plate awareness, goes the other way, doesn't try to do too much. With two strikes, he would shorten up a little bit and try to put the ball in play the other way -- a lot of things you don't see in an 18-year-old kid. I think he goes down to the Minor League camp with a lot more confidence, not that he didn't have any, but to know already that he can hit here, I'm sure will serve him very well."

"We got down so quick, double digits it certainly doesn't make for a lot of enthusiasm when you are up there trying to battle. He (Estes) got his pitches up and his balls were running off the plate a little bit. Their guy threw a lot of cutters today. that was his pitch today."

"He's got a little bit of an issue that might actually even be more important than baseball. He might be going back and forth, depending on how she is. That drive can get old, but he's got a little incentive to do it."

"After the worst three innings of baseball I've ever seen, I think, at the big league level, I mean that was just awful. But to our credit we didn't die. We came back, we had a lead, had our closer in the game. Can't ask for much more than that."
