Hamels nearing his planned pitch count in his first game in nearly a year

I guess that's it.

We don't know that.  We just know that when he was first promoted he went several days without pitching and then only came in in a mopup situation.  There was speculation on here that Hyde "didn't want" to use him in a high leverage situations.  But that was assumption based on his usage.  I don't think there was ever a quote of Hyde's to that affect.

I think he said 1-2 things but I always take that stuff with a grain of salt.   

From August 28:

“For us right now, Keegan fits in our bullpen the best,” Hyde said today in his Zoom conference call with the media.

“I might not even use him as a long guy. I might use him as a one-inning guy here, too. But I think that long-term, is he a rotation piece? Is he a long guy? I think that’s something we will find out. But at this moment right now I’m going to try to win games and utilize Keegan the best way we can.”

Three days later, Akin started a game.    Of course, Tommy Milone had been traded in the interim

John Parrish, Dave Ford, and Sammy Stewart all Kd a bunch in their debut games, I believe.

For any rookie?  No idea but I'll bet someone like Moose or Palmer or McNally hit double digits as a rookie.

Mussina struck out 10 in his 3rd major league game.  Not sure if that’s our record.

Nope.   I just figured out that Mike Boddicker struck out 12 in 1983.   He was still a rookie though he’d also gotten into games in 1980, 1981 and 1982.  

There could be someone who topped Boddicker, but I’m not going to spend any more time looking.

Well I said I wasn’t sure I remembered correctly, and I know he bounced up-down-back up with only a coup relief innings to show for it, but I thought Hyde said he’d be used in relief.

regardless, I’m glad he’s where he is.

Severino is now tied for the league lead in passed balls (with Mike Zunino).

Hey, he's tied with a former #3 overall pick, pretty impressive.

And those are the ones that were called passed balls.

At one point, Akin retired 11 consecutive batters before Austin Riley reached on an infield single in the 5th inning.

At one point, Akin threw 14 consecutive Strikes.

Not a single Braves base-runner went beyond 2nd base while Akin was in the game.

I wonder what Freeman's total time base to base was on that trip around - he only passed jog on the 2nd to 3rd bit.

Skimmed Bedard's game log for rookie peaks and he maxed out at 10.

Iglesias capitalizes on the Tomlin BP routine to get to 48-for-126 on the year.

Ben just dropped a wonderful tidbit I never knew that he and Albert Belle were LSU teammates.

Gutsy send of Severino.

Sevi being punished for the PB's?  😉

    • Yeah...in the minors. I don’t know anything about the guy, but if his defense is bad, he’s not really a utility guy, because utility guys by definition are glove-good at multiple positions. If he hits really well, he’s a 1B/DH type, and if he doesn’t hit well, he’s nothing. I just checked his stats at BBR and his D at both positions is poor.
    • What constitutes blazing? .400 OBP AND ~.900 OPS each of the last two years is pretty good. 
    • Me either but I voted Rom and Smith.
    • Does anyone know where to get minor league team home and away splits?  A quick perusal of Ashville hitters 2019 splits only reinforced the idea that Vavra 's 2019 numbers were possibly inflated due to a favorable home park.
    • Who are the #17 and #18 Prospects
    • You are right about the hours played each day. It is a big part of the culture on the islands. I have been coaching kids for the last 15 years in Central Florida. Like Drungo said, kids have more options and distractions in the US. It can be tough to get a kid to put the work in away from the field when we only practice two days a week in the younger ages. The higher end travel teams do not practice in the high school years, not at all. They can't because their kids are from all over the state, or even the nation. They show up and play for a week to ten days and go home until the next tournament. Meanwhile, the DR kids are at a Baseball Academy year round for 2-3 years before they sign a contract. It really isn't a level playing field, developmentally. There are a few places where you can go to a high school that is a baseball academy, TNXL is one here in Altamonte Springs, Florida. TNXL is run by the Scorpions organization.  More kids in Florida play baseball than many Northern states, but the burnout rate is high in Florida as well. Year round baseball, or any sport for that matter, is not a good thing long term. Overuse injuries, such as all of the elbow and shoulder issues for pitchers are a direct result of this. College coaches all want to know what other sports a kid plays. The three sport stars are discouraged from playing three sports. Football is still king in Florida. Baseball also does not develop athleticism, although it demands it. So you have to play explosive movement sports, and/or train at a complex to develop the athleticism. That gets expensive, along with everything else you have to do to have a chance. My son worked out at the same place that Ryan Mountcastle and Blake Bortles worked out at. Excellent results.  The gap is closing with the proliferation of indoor facilities. Kids can work on their skills year round now. Seeing more kids from Pennsylvania in recent years who play the game at a very high level. That is a very good thing IMO.
