First of all, I think it's worth noting that the collection of nationalities on this team is insane. They have 2 pitchers from India, a pitcher from Australia, and a 2B from South Africa in addition to the usual mix of Americans, Dominicans, Purto Ricans and Venezuelans. Must be an interesting clubhouse.
Team Stats are here:
From what I see the pitching is nothing to write home about so far, but the roster includes
Lastings Milledge just for some rehab, but at least he's showing power and taking walks. If he wanted he could swing away Pedro style and I'm sure he's seeing plenty of bad pitches.
Rinku and Dinesh showing some promise, as opposed to falling on their faces. Rinku gave up his first run last time out and Dinesh has yet to allow a run in his first 2 IP
Wes Freeman. 2008 Bonus baby is 19 years old and is 6'4" 215 Scouts said he had great tools when he was drafted and he is tearing it up so far with an OPS over 1000 and 2 HR inhis first 27 AB's
Does anyone know more about Ramon Cabrera, 18 year old catcher with an OPS over 1000 (only 13 ABs though)?
Gift Ngoepe, our 2B from South Africa has yet to draw a walk and has been caught 2 of 3 SB attempts, but he is hitting .333 Also 19 years old
Brooks Pounders got knocked around his first time out, but come on. BROOKS. POUNDERS.
Also Neil Walker is rehabbing there. Sorry "Pine-Richland's Neil Walker" is rehabbing there.
All in all there's some guys to be excited about and I look forward to following them. If anyone could fill me in with more about these guys besides just their stats through 10 games I would love to hear it.
