On cue, Walter with another great outing: 6ip 7k/0bb, just 4h and 1er. Also noteworthy—11go/1fo.

I was looking at Jetes' numbers. He's been in 21 games.WooSox win 10-6 today.
Casas 2-4 with a homer (5) and double (5). He's at .262/.388/.500/.888 for the season with 19 BB and 23 K in 103 PA.
Downs was 2-4 with a homer (5). He's at .241/.344/.482/.826 for the season with 13 BB and 34 K in 96 PA. Also 3 doubles, 1 triple and 3-5 in SB attempts. That .826 OPS is day and night from last year's .605. Despite that, SoxProspects dropped Jet from 13 to 16 in its rankings.
Duran was 0-4 with a walk and a strikeout. For the season he's at .360/.458/.560/1.018 with 9 BB and 13 K in 59 PA; 3 doubles, 2 triples, 1 homer and 7-8 in SB attempts. He missed about 10 days with Covid from 4/6 to 4/17.
Darwinzon Hernandez started and went 1.1 somewhat wild innings. He threw 50 pitches, 25 strikes and 25 balls. Struck out 4, walked 3, gave up 2 hits and 3 runs. (He might not be ready yet to go back to Boston.)
Good question. Usually players get dinged quite a bit for repeating levels... but he also skipped over AA. He's not exactly young for a prospect in AAA, but he's not old either.I was looking at Jetes' numbers. He's been in 21 games.
Through 10, he was at a .717 OPS with 21 K against 4 BB in 47 PA. That's a 45% K rate.
Since then, in 11 games, he has a .938 OPS with 13 K against 9 BB in 49 PA. That's a 27% K rate. How long does he need to keep this up before he regains prospect status?
Definitely a fan of caution here -- I just hope the prolonged absence isn't because he needs more than simple rest.I think my non-expert answer to that question would be "not yet".
It's only two weeks in the grand scheme of things, and it isn't like they expect him to get promoted twice this year. For now, I expect caution is the right answer for him and the organization, and he should only be playing when fully healthy, especially with something like a wrist, that can't really be "protected".
I’m sure there’s some disappointment in the organization about the slow start, but I doubt there’s any concern yet. It’s a small sample size, prospects sometimes take time to adjust to new levels, and he started slow last year, too. He did also just homer for the first time this year so perhaps that’s the beginning of something? Bottom line is that, for now, I think it’s safe to assume it’s just a slow start.
He had a line of .177/.250/.190 through his first 20 games last year. He hit .365/.452/.602 the rest of the year.
A lot of NY's best prospects aren't hitting much yet either, let's not forget how hard the whole lockout bullshit must have been for minor leaguers too.I would add Blaze Jordan to the early season disappointments. One of our top power prospects but barely breaking .a 500 OPS. In addition to SSS, there's the young age so it might just be that.
You might not be wrong but there's literally no reason for them to rush things. Given it's a wrist, playing it very slowly would be wise.It'll be two weeks tomorrow since Marcelo Mayer last played. I'm now officially worried that there is more than wrist soreness going on. Someone please tell me why I'm wrong.
Of course. But Speier wrote that he was expected back for the series that Salem just played, and he wasn't. I at least need a "Mayer has felt improvement but they are just being cautious and do not view this as a long term deal" to keep the irrational panic at a minimum.You might not be wrong but there's literally no reason for them to rush things. Given it's a wrist, playing it very slowly would be wise.
It's impossible to actually know, but I'd say if it were the playoffs, Nomar would be playing. It's a wrist injury. Even if they aren't serious, you don't rush them.If it was the regular season, Nomar would be playing, right?
I've mentioned it a lot, but his 2021 is masked by 2 really bad starts. In those 2 starts, he combined for 7.2 ip, 17 hits, 17 runs/15er, 2bb/12k, 4 HRA.39/1 k/bb ratio.
I love WALTUH!
Exactly. TJ cost him a year and a half, and I believe he pitched for four seasons in college because he wasn’t as highly regarded then. So he’s a little old for AA, but everything I’ve read suggests he has the potential to stick as a starter, and if not he’s on track to be a high-leverage reliever. He and Bello are quite a pair of prospects.I've mentioned it a lot, but his 2021 is masked by 2 really bad starts. In those 2 starts, he combined for 7.2 ip, 17 hits, 17 runs/15er, 2bb/12k, 4 HRA.
The rest of the season: 1.54 era, 81.2 ip, 50 hits, 25r/14er, 18bb/120k, 2 HRA. 0.88 WHIP.
His career minor league numbers now sit at 2.49 era, 151.2 ip, 110 hits, 56r/42er, 8 HRA, 29bb/210k. 0.916 WHIP. 34.4% K rate, 4.8% BB rate, 1.3% HR rate.
The obvious 1 red flag is he's 26 in September but nothing about him is traditional anyway.
Yeah. In the early going, there's maybe 3 disappointments. Jordan has been bad. Yorke hasn't hit for much power yet but has 10bb/18k in 84 PA. And Groome has been Jekyll and Hyde.This thread is why I haven't gotten to bent out of shape about the way this season is going. There is so much to be excited about.
