Thank you for the feedback you provided in the comments yesterday. We have been kicking around some different formatting ideas and appreciate your suggestions. One of the ideas we've discussed is an affiliate spotlight to go with the weekend post. We'd take a look at one of the full-season clubs every weekend so that they'd all get hit once a month, which seems like a long enough interval. If you have any other formatting suggestions or have an opinion on the affiliate spotlight idea feel free to weigh in below. On to the prospects.
- (SP): 5.1 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 3 BB, 3 K, 2 HR
- Harrison Bader (CF): 4-5, R, 2B, 2 RBI
Darren Seferina's start has been disappointing. His walk numbers remain solid, but he is striking out at an alarming rate, and even the gap power he showed last year has abandoned him. He has still been able to do damage with his legs when he gets on base, but the K% is dragging his average down right now, which limits his chances to run...This is what a Jacob Evans start looks like when things are working for him, he pounds the zone, limits walks and works deep into the game.
- Eliezer Alvarez (2B): 1-5
- Edmundo Sosa (SS): 4-5
(CF): 3-5, CS
- Chris Chinea (DH): 1-3, R, 2B, BB
- Vaughn Bryan (RF): 1-4, R
- Sandy Alcantara (SP): 0.1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Disaster start for Sanday Alcantara, who needed 32 pitches to record one out...Magneuris Sierra's line looks much better than his first exposure to full-season ball last year, but he still isn't walking much and is striking out too often, and hasn't shown off the power to offset those deficiencies. Right now the singles are falling, but that .310 batting average is being buoyed by a .384 BABIP.
