Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-20-18

Ho-hum. Another 2 plate appearances for Roederer, another two times on base... Pfft. 3 for 4 with a BB. But they were all singles. Bum couldn’t even get an XBH. I know, right? He had extra base hits 4 games in a row coming into that game (3 HRs, 2 doubles), why couldn't he have just made it 5? Dude...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-20-18

Our main man Brennen is back tonight. Davis got taken out around the 7th inning. He was DHing and was pinch hit for in the bottom of the 7th. Might've been planned that Davis not play the full game to ease him back in. His last at bat was in the 5th. He walked and was forced at 2nd base. Might have...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-20-18

Ho-hum. Another 2 plate appearances for Roederer, another two times on base... This guy horsefeathers Roederer has gotten on base in all 11 games of his pro career leading to a current OBP of exactly .500. Of those 11 games, 5 have been multi-hit affairs with a pattern of one every other game durin...

Chalk one more up. Not that it's a big deal, but looks like Tyler Duma was injured on a slide into 2nd tonight. Came out of the game.

Come on, it's not that bad. <checks stat line> No, it is. It's that bad.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-19-18

After going 2 for his last 28, King Kwon has been rightfully demoted to Mesa. 21-year-old Cuban catcher Alexander Guerra (signed for $300,000 last September) has struggled mightily. Reports were he was out of shape and looked bad behind the plate in ExST. I'll ask AZ Phil if he's slimmed down, but i...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-19-18

I know there were some reports on Erick Leal velo taking a jump before he got injured that were surprising to me. He was so young when they got him (and Castillo) for Tony Campana that he seems really old and irrelevant especially after being off the radar all last season, but, damn, what is going o...

Gotta be time for a bump. Maybe the Cubs want to keep him in Mesa to monitor him at the rehab center, but performance-wise, he's ready.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

He was already oldish when he broke out as a prospect and just suffered a season ending arm injury, but the absolute biggest reason this tarnishes his prospectness is he's lost a year of development. Wow, it's just one sentence, but you fit in three wrong statements- that's tough to do. 1- He wasn'...

Re: RE: Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

He hit 99 tonight as well. I think he's our best (at least most intriguing) pitching prospect at the moment. Gotta love the command and BB rates for a guy with his stuff. Wonder how aggressive they will be in pushing him? Oh my. If that is true that is massive. And he's throwing a high % of strikes...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

Fernando Kelli did his best El Mago impersonation in the 3rd inning. He leads off with a walk. Steals 2nd. Gets bunted over to 3rd. The pitcher then throws the ball away on a pick-off attempt and Kelli scores the tying run.

Neither Bruzual or Ocampo are on my radar at all, but I think Ocampo had TJS last year. Yeah, that was my recollection as well, but I couldn't remember ever finding confirmation. And no, neither of them are guys worth following at this point. There would have to be some huge jumps in development fo...
