Obviously not the results you want, but what a beautiful seeing from Vera. Very quiet, fluid. Good extension, good bat speed. I can see why he got the bonus he did.

that is a pretty swing.  just timing.  he was late on every pitch.

even Chuck gets the ads lol...I thought with that membership you could avoid ads...

I have to see all of the ads to make sure they're working and not causing problems. I see them all with the exception of the gnarly video ads, though I check on my other browser which is viewing as a guest account.

Real exciting to see how this class progresses. 

Brandon White had a nice season at Orem.

Erik Rivera is a two-way player? For some reason he missed my attention.

I realize that Stallings has limited upside, but he could be a real sleeper as a depth starter in a couple years.

Kochanowicz and Paris seem to be the highest upside players.

He is, not much to show for yet. 
 

William Holmes though...he’s gonna be one to watch next year...

.326/.431/.488/.920 with 4 XBH, 7 BB, 15 K in 51 PA and a 5.18 ERA in 24.1 IP with 20 BB, 38 K (K/9 of 14) and a .224 BA...some exciting indicators.

I agree - I'm very excited about Holmes, but also trying to curb my expectations.

nice to see a fairly objective source with some nice things to say about Wilson.  

some number behind a few of these guys (DNP = did not pitch):

1. Wilson - .768 ops at orem but missed a fair amount of time.  They may have just slowed him down toward the seasons end in that between NCAA and pro he'd gotten almost 500 PA in 100 games.  

2. Paris - only 13 pa toward the end of the AZL season.  .862 ops with 3bb/4k and a double.  Couple errors at SS in 3 games.  

3. Kochanowicz - DNP - mentioned for his big 11-5 curve.  

4. Erik Rivera - didn't pitch.  .577 ops in 83 PA for AZL Angels.  9bb though.  

5. Stallings - DNP 

6. Zach Peek - DNP - mentioned for his change up

7. Davis Daniel - DNP - he was considered one of the most intriguing because of his 'prospect pedigree'.  Not sure what that means

8. Kyle Brnovich - DNP - describe as tremendous depth and consistency on the breaking ball 

9. Zach Linginfelter - DNP 

10. Chad Sykes - started in rookie Orem and got knocked around a bit but moved to Burlington and posted a 1.35 era in 20 innings with 23k.  

11. Brent Killam - DNP

12. Jack Dashwood - DNP

13. Edwin Sanchez - DNP

14. Zac Kristofak - 26.1 ip for Orem.  36h, 24k, 6.15 era

15. Greg Veliz - 29.1ip betwen orem and burlington.  3.68 era with 36k.  all in relief.  

16. Dakota Donovan - DNP

17. Brandon White - .749 ops with 22b/44k in 224 PA.  11 SB/5 CS.  

18. Ryan Smith - 25.2 ip for Orem.  37k, 5.26 era.  

19. Garrett Lawson - DNP

21. Andrew Blake - 8.72 era with 32k, 18bb in 21.2 ip.  

22. Morgan McCullough - Orem .742 ops in 181 PA.  Burlington .578 ops in 49 pa.  

24. Shane Kelso - 2.18 era in 20.2 ip for Orem and Burlington. 34k/15bb

25. Anthony Mulrine - .820 ops with 16bb in 159 pa for Orem in addition to the defense mentioned above.  

26. Kyle Molnar - DNP

Yes but what are you going to do to celebrate Adell's HR vs. Whitley?
