Danny Jansen. What a crazy year.

360pa, 8.9bb%, 9.4k%, .344babip, .326avg, .147iso, 147wrc+

and by all reports a solid defensive catcher and gamecaller. and he's gone from slightly old for A+ to slightly young for AAA now, and is still thriving.

he might be one of the best catching prospects in baseball.

but the craziest stat of all of his stats this year has to be the insane fact that he has only swung and missed at 3.3% of his pitches seen this year.


Can anyone else find a number like that for any other prospect? vlad and bo are amazing in their own right but have swst rate around 8-9%, which is great. the best i can find is mookie betts posting around a 4.0% rate at 21 between AA/AAA.

but 3.3%?

Or get vision tests.

Carlos Ramirez is in AAA. He threw two innings today, no base runners, four K's.

"Or get vision tests."

And not the online vision tests.

I mentioned DJ Davis a few days ago, and had another great game today, 3 for 4 with a HR, 2B, SB, 2 walks, 4 runs scored, 4 driven in. He's now got a .400 BA over his last 11 games with 2 HR's, 5 SB's, 5 BB's. If he's figured something out, he's back on the prospect scene. Or, maybe it's just a random hot streak. Dunedin scored 16 runs with only 10 hits, Bo and Vlady were a combined 3 for 11. Bit of an oddity in the game - Biggio, De La Cruz, Almonte and Sotillo were a combined 0 for 11, but they scored 8 runs. Rough game for Jordan Romano, 9 hits and 2 walks in 2 1/3 IP, 6 ER, but he actually left with the lead.

I'm really ready to watch for Carlos Ramirez in the game threads and not the minor league updates.

I also know it is to be expected, but it is encouraging to see Logan Warmoth to hit for both above average to great contact and power. I know it's nit picky to to point out his awful walk rate, but you'd like to see a bit more discipline.
hypobole - Thursday, August 10 2017 @ 08:32 AM EDT (#346698) #
Yeah, noticed that with Warmoth. But on the bright side, his 2 BB's the past 2 games have doubled his walk total.

wouldn't worry about the walks when he's hitting the ball this well, and not swinging and missing much (8.3%).

For me at age 21 I hope they move him up to full season ball before the end of the year.

ugly, where are you finding swing data for minor leaguers?
uglyone - Friday, August 11 2017 @ 04:55 AM EDT (#346774) #
fangraphs has them on their minor league stats pages. and you can customize the player pages so they show up there as well.
