"We thought he had the tools in spring training and we've given him a shot here, but any young player, you look at all the good ones we have, it takes a long time to learn at this level," Crowley said. "It's not easy. If we were in instructional league or A ball or Double-A, I could tell him some things and he'd be able to take it right into the game. But pichers at this level don't allow you to get on a roll.
"He's coming around. He's hit some balls good. Unfortunately, they've caught them. That has a way of working on a young guy's mind.
"I'm not so sure he's going to be playing on a regular basis anymore. We might take a step back and let him get his feet on the ground. That's up to Dave (Trembley) and Andy (MacPhail)."
— Terry Crowley on Felix Pie. That was a pretty short leash.
