Fall / Winterball Week 5


Just to give forewarning, this will not be a well researched post because I live in the prc and right now, the government is restricting a lot of sites because of their upcoming power transfer. So sites like google are blocked. The result will be a sparse post
The Roberto Clemente Puerto Rican League kicked off last Thursday so we are now seeing stats from players like Kenny Vargas, Eddie Rosario and others. Ortiz, Vargas and Rosario are playing for the Indios de Mayaguez. Rosario looks to be playing OF as I have yet to see a box score where he is at 2B. I don’t know if this is an indication for next year or not but I hope the Rosario 2B experiment is not over. I am actively looking to see if Berrios will pitch in Winter Leagues or not. It would be surprising to me if he does not, but maybe the Twins want to limit his innings. Angel Morales has seen action in 2 games and he continues his trend of hot starts where he is sporting a 1.23 OPS. Next year is beyond crucial for him. After his stinker in 2012 he must show the Twins something early. Otherwise he going to find himself passed by and in another organization. He still young enough to turn it around if he can stay healthy for a whole season and avoid the long slumps that have plagued him his whole career.

Over in the Australian league things are progressing at a snail’s pace. I have yet to find out why Hendricks is not pitching in the Australian league. I have heard he was supposed to pitch for the Perth Heat but I don’t see any stats from him. I suspect he is injured but can't verify this. Tyler "The Giant" Herr came in out of relief again and pitched well. Also Sam Gibbons made his 2012 Australian debut. Sam is an interesting prospect because he turns 19 in December and he is already in his 2nd year of Winter Ball. As a 18 YO pitching for the GCL he had a respectable 2.29 ERA in 6 Starts with 4 other games coming in relief. He seems to be a fly ball pitcher and opponents batted .228 off him. In 35 Innings, he struck out 22. So he could miss more bats. Hopefully he will get an opportunity to progress to E-Town next year. But repeat at GCL would not be out of the question for this youngster. Another just turned 19 year old is Jacob Younis. He is a second baseman out of Sydney. He has started his young season out with a .913 OPS. Jacob hit a paltry .364 OPS in 36 AB in the GCL in the 2012 campaign as an 18 year old so I would expect him to repeat. He is very young for his level so hopefully he can keep it going in an area of obvious need for the organization.


Over in Venezuela its more of the same. Oswaldo Arcia hit his 3rd HR of the year and he continues to mash LH pitching. He is only hitting .753 OPS so I would like to see some better results from him especially against RH pitchers. Aaron Hicks on the other hand is really looking poor. He hasn’t played since Nov 4, so I am not sure if he is hurt or what. Angel Mata continues to be a driving force in the bullpen. He is giving up a decent amount of hits but I am pleased that he is getting a lot of SO. In 11.2 Innings he has 14 with 5 walks. Relief pitcher, Dakota Watts has brought his ERA to a respectable 2.53 after a horrible start. He has not given up an earned run over his last 12 innings. His 9 SO seems low to me but he has been getting a lot more SO over his last few outings so I expect this to improve as he is now getting regular outings out of the pen. In 2009 he was ranked as having the best FB in the organization so its good to see him progress after he floundered in the beginning of his career. Expect him to end the season in AAA next year and have a shot to win a Burnet’s bullpen spot in 2014 and if injuries hit the 2013 MLB club, he could get a shot.

Over in the Mexican league its Slama all the time. With 11 games, 12.2 innings pitched he has 4 Saves, 16 SO and 4 walks….why oh why won’t the twins give him a chance….

In Arizona Nate Roberts continues his outstanding run. He has really put up great numbers and made a name for himself this winter. The season is winding down so it would take a disastrous slump to knock him off the leaderboard. He has walked 10 times but SO 5 times. He has 53 AB, and has been Hit by a pitch 7 times. So he has been on base 17 times without getting a hit. THIS is how you have an unreal .577 OBP. He is the definition of "gamer," Too bad he doesn’t play SS because if he did, Gardy would disown Toby and Adopt Nate. I still hold to prediction that he is not a top prospect but my god, what he is doing is AMAZING. Gibson had another so-so outing and I officially don’t care. As long as he doesn’t get hurt and keeps putting innings on that surgically repaired elbow I am happy.


Last but not least we see Miguel Sano making in an impact in the Dominican league. He hit 2 HR this week and is now sporting a .930 OPS. Go Miguel! On the opposite side of the spectrum is Pedro Florimon who is just not hitting well at all.
