Minor League Update -- 11/01/09

Typical slow week in the minors. The offseason sucks--especially before the stove heats up, as it were.

Arizona Fall League

 

Luis Exposito: 4-12, 2B, BB -- .259/.310/.407

-Expo is getting in a good rhythm since starting slow. Gotta love the lack of strikeouts.

Jose Iglesias: 2-17, 4 K -- .216/.293/.324

-Ok, so the honeymoon period is over. But seriously, no freaking out. He's not quite 20 yet and playing in the elite fall league for AA/AAA competition. Besides, we knew the bat was gonna need some work.

Ryan Kalish: 2-12, 2 BB -- .256/.311/.282

-It's a little less excusable for Kalish, though. The more pessimistic of us will start worrying about if he can reproduce his late '09 numbers at AA to make the move up.

Casey Kelly: 3-7, 2B, 3B, BB, K -- .250/.400/.438

-I honestly don't know whether to be happy that Kelly is at least showing that if he does choose to be a SS he may well have some upside, or pissed that this could steer him away from pitching when he's clearly shown favoritism towards playing shortstop all other concerns (abilities, money) being equal.

 

Richie Lentz: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K – 1.04 ERA, 9:1 K:BB, .57 WHIP

Chris Province: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K – 3.52 ERA, 6:3 K:BB, 1.04 WHIP

Dustin Richardson: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 HR, 2 BB, 1 K – 6.75 ERA, 10:5 K:BB, 2.10 WHIP

-A really bad day for Richardson on the 26th, giving up a walkoff grand slam. ERA of 108 on the day.

 

Columbian Winter League

 

Reynaldo Rodriguez: .263/.423/.421, 1 HR, 19 AB

-For those who don't remember, Rodriguez is the guy from the independent GBL. It's difficult to get game-by-game numbers on the CWL, so I'll just give you the updated slash line. So far, he's displaying some good patience, as that's 6 walks in 26 plate appearances.

 

Dominican Winter League

 

Mark Wagner: 3-10, 2B, 2 BB, 2 K -- .346/.455/.615

 

Venezuelan Winter League

Jose Alvarez: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 K – 3.86 ERA, 6:3 K:BB, 1.43 WHIP

Yeiper Castillo: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K – 3.86 ERA, 3:2 K:BB, 1.72 WHIP

Leandro Marin: .1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K – 5.40 ERA, 2:0 K:BB, 1.80 WHIP

 

Sox Farm Director Hazen Interviews with the Padres

Mike Hazen interviewed with the team for the position of assistant GM. The GM he would be assisting is, of course, former Sox executive Jed Hoyer, who left his position as Boston's director of player development on Monday to join the Padres. It's unsurprising that Hazen would bring a few guys with him, but I'm sure the Sox would rather avoid having to replace quite so many executives responsible for their impressive farm system.
