Here are both parts of a two-part chat with Rick Tomlin, minor league pitching coordinator for the Sounds’ parent-club Milwaukee Brewers. Tomlin took over his current post over the winter, replacing Lee Tunnell, who was promoted to Brewers bullpen coach. Tomlin has been in pro ball for over two decades has worked for several organizations, including the Twins, Yankees, Nationals and Mets. In our chat he discussed getting acclimated to all over the Brewers’ hurlers, his first impressions of the system, his thoughts about the Sounds’ young pitching staff, including pitchers Tyler Thornburg, Hiram Burgos and Johnny Hellweg and some of the pitchers he worked with in previous organizations, such as Mets phenom Matt Harvey.
