Hernandez turned 23 today.

So tell me guys, is this kid for real or what?

His K rate is over 11...His command rate is great. His BB rate is a little high, as his HR rate.

His age is probably slightly over the average in AA but if it is over, its close.

His K rate has always been very good...His numbers suggest he may be the real deal but the excitement isn't surrounding him as much as other prospects...So, what gives?

Tony??

He's improved his pitching from the stretch this year and has stayed away from that meltdown outings he;s been known for. I was hoping to see him tonight but couldn't make it.

I said he had to prove he could get Double-A hitters outs before he would shoot up the prospect chart and he's done just that. If he keeps this up, that prospect love he's been missing out on will start pouring in.

So this part I don't understand. David is currently the 4th youngest player on Bowie's roster and I know that there is a handful of 22yr olds playing in the majors, but does that make him old. I know there was a thread on the average age of minor leaguers last year and I thought the ave. age was around 23 so basically David is still ahead of the game, sort of:confused:.

Looks like we might have a sleeper on our hands.

Man, the competition for the rotation in Baltimore is going to be THICK soon.

I never ever thought we'd have so many arms in our minors. It seems like they all came out of nowhere, too.

I can't wait to see Tony's list. When are you going to come out with that, Tony?

Talked to David and he said that the first guy who hit the HR, hit a good pitch, which was a fastball, low at the knees and on the outside corner, so another words he hit a good pitch and the other guy, he just served it up!!:eek::(:mwahaha:. Also like the fact that he didn't walk anybody today.:clap3:

The avg age in 'AA' is more like 26, but that's inflated by all the minor league veterans. See Julio Manon (34), Brian Peterson (29), Jeff Nettles (29). I guess you could describe Hernandez' age:level as neutral for a legit prospect (so it's a non-factor for now, but he's not on pace to be in the majors at 22).

No, since he is already 23.

Missing bats huh? Do they keep this stat for MiLers?

Groundball pitcher?

By misses bats, I'm sure Frobby means he strikes guys out. I don't think we can find a stat that says he gets a lot of swings and misses...somebody that has watched him could probably tell us that.

However, he is an EXTREME fly ball pitcher...in fact, I think he is at a point right now where he couldn't go any lower. His GB% is 26%, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but he is definitely going to give up his fair share of HRs.

Like you said, it might be a bad thing, as long as they are solo HR's;)
