Lots of prospects to update you on so let's get to it.
Matt Wieters -
5/1 - 2/4 with 1R and 2BBs. Good day for the OBP, that's for sure.
5/2 - 0/4 with a K. About that OBP, fella...
5/3 - 2/5 with a double. 1R, 1RBI.
5/4 - Off-day
5/5 - 1/3. That's all she wrote.
Wieters isn't hitting for a whole lotta power so far this month. It's a bit disconcerting. His season line triple-slash is .290/.363/.377. Those first two numbers are good, the SLG is what concerns me.
Sweet Jesus Montero -
5/1 - 1/4 with a solo HR. 1RBI, 1R
5/2 - 0/3 with a BB and a K.
5/3 - 1/4 with a double; 1 RBI and 1K.
5/4 - 0/2 with a walk and a K.
5/5 - 1/3 with a double, a walk and a K.
Season line: .312/.379/.548; OPS of .927. That's just filthy.
Sir David Price -
5/2 - 3.2IP, 4H, 2ER, 3BB, 1K. Dude is just biding time til he gets called up. He's on a pitch count limit and everything. Call his ass up already and get it over with. He's wasting away. Cheap bastards.
The Man the Myth Neftali Feliz
5/3 - 5IP, 6H, 4ER, 2BB and 7Ks. That's a lot of Ks; the ER are a bit high. This would be a good time to read a scout's evaluation of the game. Unfortunately I can't find one of those. Thanks Obama.
Andrew Brackman -
5/5 - 4IP, 2H, 1ER, 3BB and 3Ks. Still having control issues, but the K rate is nice!
2009 MLB Amateur Rule IV Draft 1st Pick of 1st Round -
5/1 - 8IP, 3H, 0R, 0ER, 2BB, 12Ks. It's losing the shock value at this point. How about the season line:
10-0. 78IP. 13R. 12ER. 15BB. One Hundred and Forty-Seven Strikeouts. K/9 rate? 17.01 strikeouts per nine innings. K/BB ratio? 9.8Ks for every 1 walk. Folks, it don't get much better than that. For fun, I present to you this:
