During his first start of the season with the Iowa Cubs, Adbert Alzolay showed some of the reasons why he might have had a bright future in the big leagues.

He also pointed out that he has a lot of work to do before he gets there.

Alzolay was struggling with his first trip to Iowa, giving up six races (five holes) in four working days in a loss to the New Orleans Baby Cakes at the Main Park on Friday night.

The friend turned right to surrender four hits, walked three and surrendered a pair of home dates. He also met Lewis Brinson, New Orleans, who hit one of the earlier hosts in the game from Alzolay. Alzolay struggled with his order at times, wearing 74 pitches including 44 for strikes.

"I felt like the first three innings, my changeup and my curling, when I was ahead in the count, it was working well," Alzolay said. "The fastball was also working well."

That was when he was working. The problem was that Alzolay was not always in his early season and who made his first start of the year in Tri-A. The good news is, there should be better days before Alzolay.

The 24-year-old created three Friday nights. He also showed a quick attire that emerged at 95 miles per hour. More importantly, perhaps, how Alzolay said that he felt after his first start.

"I feel good – in fact, well," Alzolay said. "I lost a few playing fields."

Perhaps that is the best news. Alzolay has already dealt with his injuries share over the past year. Alzolay lost the start of the season after a side injury to him during spring training. It closed for two weeks and began the season in expanded spring training. Alzolay did not start his first season until 12 May.

"It's like I said to the pitching coach, it's the first pitching with the intensity at this level," Alzolay said. "I just need to go back, practice it. So far, I look good."

The rest for Alzolay is also looking forward to. His first visit to the season, which came with Myrtle Beach, was a collection for Alzolay, which surrendered a race (five holes) on seven goals and four work inputs.

Staying healthy is the most important thing for Alzolay, which is ranked as the second best prospect in the organization and the fourth best in the system according to MLB.com. Alzolay lost the start of the last season with an ankle injury and then closed it after just eight initial due to lat pressure.

Alzolay understands that, while he is feeling good, it will take a little time before he begins to look like the biggest poker he showed to he could be at times of last season.

"As soon as I feel good, I know everything has to come together," Alzolay said.
