*YW Kuo - looking good in BP

*CH Cheng 411: "Cheng doesn’t have the velocity to challenge hitters up in the zone, and Hillcats pitching coach Wally Whitehurst has repeatedly stressed that Cheng — and every Hillcat pitcher — attack the lower half of the zone.

“He’s got to understand who he is, and not what he thinks he is,” Whitehurst said. “Everybody likes to throw hard. Some people can and some people can’t. For the most part, he stays within himself and throws the ball down in the strike zone, and he produces a lot of weak swings. He needs to understand that and see that.”

Cheng hasn’t allowed a run in his last two starts. His future in the rotation is uncertain — LHP Bryan Morris continues his rehab in Florida and should be back with the Hillcats soon, and the Pirates’ brass will likely want to see what Morris, a former first-round draft pick, can do in the rotation.

*Indians C Chun-Hsiu Chen has hit 8 HR's so far in XST and is batting around .300
