last 5 games: .600/.652/1.300 in 23 PA. 3bb/3k, 2 2 doubles, 2 triples, 2 HR.
In his first 329 PA, he had 13 doubles, 2 triples and 0 HRs. He slashed .242/.380/.314 with 59bb/62k.
For the year, he now sits at .268/.398/.384 with 62bb/65k. 24 xbh/2HRs. 18sb/5cs. 18.5% K%, 17.6% BB%.
This is why he's a binky of mine. I love me an outlier. He doesn't hit for power so it's not like he's drawing walks out of pitchers being overly cautious. As a reference: Kavadas had a 27.6% k%/21.3% BB% in Salem over 254 PA but he had an ISO of .322 compared to Bonaci's .116. He's 3y9m older, too. Struck out far more often as well.
I've mentioned this before but I have friends who go to a lot of Salem games. They start conversations with scouts when they are around and Bonaci gets mentioned a lot for a guy ranked 20-30. "The sum is greater than the individual parts." "Classic overachiever." "Baseball player."
He's obviously going to have to hit for more power but there's a chance he grows into some. He just turned 20 on 7/9.. He's also been moved off of SS to 2b which doesn't help his cause. Careers have been made off of less than average+ contact skills, good plate discipline and average defense at 2b though. I'd say Luis Castillo
but he had the whole speed thing and was also in the Majors at 21 years old. Post Florida version, maybe.
last 7 games: 1.11 era, 32.1 ip, 24h, 7r/4er, 4bb/38k. Hitters are slashing .209/.240/.270 on a .299 BAbip. 31.4% K%, 3.3% BB%,
Dobbins last 5 games: 0.74 era, 24.1 ip, 17h, 5r/2er, 3bb/34k. Hitters are slashing .198/.231/.244 on a .308 BAbip. 37.4% K%, 3.3% BB%,
First 5 games: 66% strike %, 17% StL, 8% StS, 54% GB%.
Last 4 games: 73% strike%, 21% StL%, 14% StS, 51% GB%
Again, coming off of TJS. He's not even rated on the Sox prospects top 60 yet but he'll probably enter in the top 30.
Luis De La Rosa
(acquired in Benny deal) has a 2.45 era, 11.0 ip, 9 hits, 3r/3er, 2bb/12k in Salem. He is the youngest pitcher in Salem atm, having turned 20 on 7/7.
For the year, he has a 1.78 era, 25.1 ip, 14 hits, 5r/5er,, 11bb/32k. As someone noted on the main board, he hits a lot of batters. He has 9 hbp in 52.0 ip stateside. Luckily for hitters, he tops out at like 93. There is some projection for him to add velocity, and he will have to to have an MLB career.
If you ignore his 0.2 ip, 4 hit, 6er performance last year, the rest of his 2021: 1.04 era, 26.0 ip, 15 hits, 3r/3er, 8bb/21k.
continues his overlooked season: .273/.389/.455 in 54 PA at Greenville. 8bb/15k.
For the year: .272/.420/.495 in 236 PA. 47bb/54k. I shouldn't say it's completely overlooked. He has found himself on the Sox Prospects top 20.
