Foltynewicz will pitch in Greeneville all season

Bob Sutton's Appalachian League notebook features Astros 19th overall pick Mike Foltynewicz, who better get used to eastern Tennessee.

"I'm just going to get my feet on the ground the whole season. This is real comforting knowing what I need to do."

Manager Ed Romero:
"We're going to go slowly with him and build him up."

No kidding. Sutton says he'll make his debut Saturday night, throwing 25 pitches, and moving up from there. He should be ready for his first 100-pitch game in June 2041.
