11/10/2011 - Arizona Fall Select Training - 2011 Silva is a strong right-handed pitcher and spends some time at second base as well. In the infield, he gets in a good fielding position and has a quick exchange with some life on his throws, but needs to create some pre-pitch rhythm and field the ball out in front of his body. At the plate, he has an athletic setup and fast strong hands, needs to create a consistent load and learn to minimize his stride. On the mound, he has a long arm action, keeps his head on the target, and pitches to contact. His abilities on the mound should continue to develop as he learns to utilize his lower half throughout his delivery. This week in Arizona, Silva displayed great hustle and a very coachable attitude.
