withit or if I liked starting better. He
said they had given some consideration
in moving me to the starting rotation.
"But right now I'm the only
lefthanded pitcher in the bullpen, so
as far as my team goes, that's where
they need me now. So definitely for
this year I am in the bullpen."
Newton has excelled in his spe-
cialized role, leading the Jammers
in ERA with a sparkling 2.05, while
carrying a 3-2 record and 26
strikeouts in 31 innings. And al-
though he will certainly be a fixture
at Jamestown for this season, his
performance and the fact that he is a
lefty could move him rapidly
through the Tigers' system.
"I think you have to be optimistic,"
Newton said. "Ithink if you're not, you
can become frustrated in not coming
up. There is not a ton of lefthanded
pitching in the organization, so in that
regard I think I am off to a good start."
One thing that Newton hopes will
make him an even more promising
commodity is learning to toughen up
against lefthanded hitters - although
as a lefty he is already inherently at an
advantage against other southpaws.
"I would say the pitch makeup is
there, but the one thing we've worked
on a little bit this summer is throwing
sidearm to lefthanded hitters,. which
makes it especially difficult to hit,"
It is also beneficial to Newton's
career that the Tigers' system is hardly
chock-full of pitching prospects. And
so if Newton can perfect his setup role,
one day he could be pitching not too far
from where he played his college ball.
"I went to Tiger games when I was
in school and Tiger Stadium is a great
place to see baseball and to play base-
ball," Newton said. "So ending up
there would definitely be exciting."
