Pie impressing

Felix Pie drew a 12-pitch walk in the eighth innings of Saturday’s game off Rays’ lefty reliever Cesar Ramos that didn’t go unnoticed by manager Buck Showalter.

“That was a great at-bat,” Showalter said. ” In years past, Felix would have let him take him out of the strike zone with strike three not foul as many balls off. But he spit on that one. Hopefully, that’s a sign of maturity. I think he’s come a long way since he’s come to Baltimore.

Pie has started to hit his stride at the plate as of late, and hit his first spring homer during Thursday’s four-RBI afternoon.  Showalter also praised Pie’s great catch in centerfield during Saturday’s 7-2 win.
