Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-11-18

Have you guys gotten any updated scouting info on Keegan Thompson? His outing drops his AA and composite season ERA's below 3. Over his last 8 starts, 5 have been shutout outings. 5 earned runs spread out over 8 starts is pretty good work. Thompson, Rucker, and Swarmer have been in a pretty outstand...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-10-18

Keegan T might also fall in that not-much-stuff but has been competitive in AA. 2.91 over last 10 starts, 3.03 at AA, 3.13 on season. Think he's been making some adjustments in how he works. Seemed to come out as a throw-strikes/challenge guy (13 walks in 68 Myrtle innings). But at Tenn, he's ~ doub...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-10-18

Bailey Clark: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K. Wonder if the AFL is in the offing for him. There are a few injured guys who could use the innings - Alzolay, Steele and Clark. Hultzen also had another scoreless inning with 2 Ks. Probably too late for him too meaningfully contribute to the big league team ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-3-18

I noticed today that Jeremiah Estrada is 7th on FanGraphs' list. He was a personal favorite in the 2017 draft as a potential impact reliever with command of a good fastball and his changeup, and am really curious to see how he comes back post-TJ. He's hard to rank because of the TJ, though I think ...

https://twitter.com/billazbbphotog/status/1023795534962642945 I've never read "plus raw power" in the future for Brennen Davis in any scouting report. He is super athletic and 6'4", but he's a skinny dude. He's listed at 175 lbs. right now. He might develop power down the road, but I...

Herron 3-4.
OBP up to .457, although not as good as Cole at .500 and Davis at .600. :)
2K in his 9 games.

Weber 0-4 1K, his first game without multi-K.

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

A 6-foot-1, 195-pound college performer, Mort struck out 8.31 batters per walk this spring while posting a 2.48 ERA through 105 innings in 15 starts. He has average stuff across the board and gets his fastball up to 93 . Other than the stats, I think this is the only scouting info that was posted i...

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

Mort with a good line, 4K/3IP, single and a walk. Tiny sample, but 8K/1BB/7IP, and a 5.0 GO/AO ratio in his three outings. Had really good numbers as a 20-year-old junior (8:1 K/BB), so he's still quite young. I don't recall reading much if any scouting info on him in draft threat. Is his fastball s...

Roederer HR Man, what an exciting start. I know, premature and everything, but sometimes if you've got it you've got it. Draft thread, there were some questions about wisdom of the two HS kids, were they overdrafts, how low is the success rate with HS hitters, why didn't they shoot for higher ceili...

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

17 ABs, 12 Ks, 1 hit. A single.


Walker improved to only 2 K's last night.

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

Also, Andy Weber has had about as rough a beginning as I remember a college bat having. After a K in the 1st tonight, he’s 1 for 12 with 8Ks. I'd been thinking exactly the same thing after checking box score and before popping over here. He's added a couple more K's in his 2nd and 3rd AB as well. 1...

This is a thing with promoting young players really aggressively. If they do great while being really young, it's "Wow", and you know something is terrific. But if they stink, as Ademan has done, it's hard to evaluate. Does he stink because he doesn't have it and never will? Or can we excu...

Watched the Little game last night. What was most improved was his location. Was spotting the FB on the outside corner to lefties quite well. He left it up a bit too but it didn't hurt him. The Lugnuts announcers said his FB had late life. It was difficult to see much movement from their CF camera ...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

The max they can offer a player outside the top 10 rounds is $208,955. Well, looks like they spent all they could. Americaan is a JC guy, but he's not young. Full 21-year-old, just like a college junior would be, and he's older than many of our top-ten college guys (Hoerner, Richan, Weber, Roberts,...

What do we know about Reindl? Does he have big-league potential, or would he just be an organizational filler even if he does sign?

There has been interests/speculation regarding Parker, 28th-round HS pitcher who came to Wrigley. Two rounds prior was another HS guy, outfielder Julian Boyd. In between was a JC pitcher who I believe has signed. Do we know anything about Boyd, and think he might be signable? My recall is that he wa...
