2019 Arizona Fall League Thread

Recommended Posts

Dean Kremer pitched last night, allowing 3 ER on 7 hits in 5 IP, striking out 6.    All the runs and 5 of the hits came in the 4th and 5th innings.   Prior to that, Kremer had been pretty dominant, striking out 5 in the first 3 frames.    He also picked off two runners who reached on singles during his outing.   
 

Kremer should be available for the championship game on Saturday, if needed.

Maybe I am remembering incorrectly but I always thought the Championship game was on MLB Network. I don’t see it listed this year.

Perhaps because the game is being played while the World Series is ongoing, unlike past years where the AFL chsmpionship was in mid-November.   Though I don’t remember if the championship was televised previously.    The All Star Game certainly is.

I thought that as well but it looks like the game is at 1pm eastern. Oh well. 

I did some research and MLBN did air it previous years.

It’ll probably stream on the MLB fall league site, I’m guessing.

Alex Wells threw two shutout innings tonight, allowing three hits and striking out two.   He entered the game with two on and nobody out in the fourth inning, and struck out the first two men he faced and induced a ground out to escape the jam.     In the fifth, he allowed three singles but benefited from having a runner thrown out at the plate for the second out before inducing a fly out to end the inning.   
 

That’s probably it for Wells in the regular season, though he probably could toss an inning in relief in the championship game if needed.  He posted an 0.57 ERA and 1.09 WHIP this fall, only allowing one run in 15.2 innings, and striking out 15 as against 2 walks.   Great job by Wells.

    • Life has really been showing me lately that I am old. I used to post a bunch at one time. Now I usually just read what posters have to say. I am in the process of moving from Florida to Wisconsin complicated by having a heart problem a week ago. When I get settled up there I will renew my long overdue subscription. I will probably never post like I used to as I coach football and in Florida that is basically year round.  I do really miss the conversations with bunch of guys on here that I used to participate in. Just haven't felt like I had kept up well enough to contribute much. But this is the best site on the Web I'm and has been for decades.
    • Tony:  Let me add that I would be willing to contribute more to keep the site going.  I know it is not completely a financial decision but if it will help I am willing to contribute.  I also there could be a creative way to keep it going in some form or another.  
    • Just take 2020 off and come back fresh when the O’s are respectable again.
    • I've been a member of this site for 12 years now, and before that I lurked for quite awhile.  This was the go to site for me.  Through this site I learned so much over the years, and the shared experiences I had here are priceless, and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.  Tony (and the staff), thank you so so much for everything you've done throughout the years.  I hope that this site can continue and wouldn't mind at all a raising of the plus membership price if it means the site could continue.  If it doesn't, I will understand Tony.  You've brought me and countless other users knowledge, joy, and companionship.  For that we are very blessed.
    • Here's a series of brief notes on the DFAed players with significant team control remaining. In order of preference for the Orioles...(top 5 would be a clear back of the 40 man upgrade IMO, although Cotton and Greene are projects rather than immediate improvements) Luis Escobar 23yo, mid 90s, overpronated fastball with big horizontal, makings of two quality but low spin offspeed pitches Montana DuRapau 27yo super premium spin guy, 4 pitch 5'11" righty, needs to use curveball more, better. Jharel Cotton 27yo 5 pitch former top prospect, led by a elite changeup, been injured, reclaimation project, maybe in the pen Justin Shafer 27yo, solid pitch mix including above avg spin mid 90s FB, slider, hard cutter (90mph), rare change. Strikethrower, but lacks command Conner Greene 24yo righty, big stuff, mid-rotation or late inning, has never been able to throw enough strikes Nick Dini 26yo Bat first catcher, but not an everyday bat. fringe average catch and throw, questionable framing, better than Wynns maybe Drew Gagnon 29yo super low spin 4S FB, uses it up when he shouldn't, good changeup. Could be useful, limited upside Williams Jerez 27yo Mid-90s lefty, low spin FB, that he elevates and gets crushed, quality split, and a usable slider, poor command Taylor Guerrieri 26yo with premium curveball spin and solid command who lost the zone in 2019. Nestor Cortes Jr 24yo command and deception lefty, good k/bb, flyball pitcher hurt by juiced ball CD Pelham 24yo hard throwing lefty reliever, has t100, couldn't throw strikes in 2019 Arnaldo Hernandez 23yo righty, good changeup, hasn't been used in relief, doesn't work as a starter Dario Agrazal 24yo blah command based sinkerballer without a strikeout pitch Jorge Bonifacio 26yo plus run, fringe average glove COF, hit a little, but not enough Nick Martini 29yo LF with some bat control but without LF power
    • On first look it looks like a lot of outfielders were left unprotected.
