Some notes from my weekend in Los Angeles after seeing UC Irvine's Andrew Thurman and San Diego's Kris Bryant, two likely first-rounders.

• Thurman pitched a gem against Hawaii on Friday night, only running into trouble in the ninth inning after eight superb frames in which he commanded his fastball and showed four weapons. The right-hander was 91-93 with his fastball early in the game, slipping a little to 89-92 by the sixth inning, and worked very well side to side with the pitch, making up for the fact that it didn't have a ton of life.
