Arizona Fall League: Joely Rodriguez named pitcher of the week


Here's the latest from the Arizona Fall League. The pitchers come first this time, because they've been more interesting.

-P- Joely Rodriguez pitched four innings Saturday, allowing one run, striking out three and walking none. Rodriguez was also named the AFL pitcher of the week based on that outing and an even better performance last Monday. He's now pitched 13.1 innings and has 13 whiffs and three walks, surprisingly good numbers given his middling performance at Altoona this year. It would be great to see him turn a corner, but obviously, it's tough to tell what four good AFL starts mean.

-P- Tyler Glasnow made his last start Friday and was dominant, striking out six batters and walking one in three innings. Since his rough first outing October 7 (and remember, he was probably just shaking off the rust then), Glasnow has 12 strikeouts, three walks and no runs allowed in nine innings.

-P- Tom Harlan gave up five runs last Wednesday, then struck out seven and walked none while allowing two runs Tuesday. He's allowed 11 runs, nine earned, in his first 10 AFL innings.

-P- Adrian Sampson has only pitched once in the past week, picking up two scoreless innings Friday.

-P- Elias Diaz had a nice week, going 4-for-12 with a walk and a double. He's now hitting a fine .267/.377/.400.

-P- Dan Gamache had two multi-hit games of his own, and he's now at .237/.375/.395.

-P- Josh Bell had three straight 0-fers before Tuesday night, when he went 1-for-3 with a walk and a double against Surprise. He's hitting .226/.317/.340.
