It was a mixed night on the farm, four wins and three losses. New Hampshire, Lansing and Bluefield had big wins. Vancouver needed a ninth inning home run to send the game to extra innings where the C's picked up a walk-off win. Buffalo and Dunedin lost. Otto Lopez picked up three hits, the good Justin Dillon pitched and Bo Bichette stole home.

Buffalo 8 Charlotte 3

Reading 1 New Hampshire 9

Dunedin 2 Palm Beach 4

Lansing 8 West Michigan 0

Everett 4 Vancouver 5 - 10 innings

Pulaski 2 Bluefield 7

GCL Jays - Scheduled Day Off

DSL Orioles 10 DSL Blue Jays 5


Here are some things I noted from Thursdays games:


Andrew Sopko came over in the Russell Martin trade. He started the season in New Hampshire, pitched well and was promoted. He has not mastered AAA yet. This was his first start after a stay on the IL but he just lasted three innings with four runs allowed. The runs were unearned due to Bo Bichette's ninth error. A couple of walks around the error loaded the bases and a double cleared them.

Sopko was followed by Taylor Saucedo who had been pitching well. Like Sopke he gave up four runs and he has come off the boil recently. Cancel the call-up.

Bichette led off the game with a double and scored on a steal of home as part of a double steal. It would be nice to see that in Toronto.

Two hits for Jonathan Davis including his 15th double. Davis's bat is heating up.

Justin Dillon started for NH and pitched six shutout innings. Dillon has made four starts for NH, two shutouts and two where the conceded 14 runs. Its a night or day performance from him, I am not sure why.

Forrest Wall hit his ninth home run. His OPS by month is 817, 924, 592, and 853. One bad month. However his strikeouts are up in July, to around 30%.

Two more hits for Cal Stevenson. His OPS by month is 587, 832, 742 and 880. I assume he will stick in Dunedin this season and play in the playoffs. He will be in AA next season at age 23.

A double and two RBI's for Alejandro Kirk. Where does he start next season at age 21?

A hit and a walk for Samad Taylor. His second half improvement is still holding.

Gabriel Moreno homered. Emily Walden from The athletic was there and tweeted "379-foot laser off the bat of #BlueJays Gabriel Moreno (5'11, 160 lbs.), his 8th of the year with @LansingLugnuts. Easy power for the 19-year-old. Moreno signed with the Blue Jays in August, 2016." Moreno also doubled but was thrown out stretching it at third.

Fitz Stadler had one of his best starts, five shutout innings.

Otto Lopez had three hits, his average is back over .300.

Griffin Conine ended his hitless spell with two hits. He also K'd twice.

Miguel Hiraldo picked up a hit to keep his average over .300. Hiraldo has the third best OPS on Bluefield, at age 18, behind two guys who came down from Vancouver, Davis Schneider and Ryan Sloniger.

The C's got a home run from Brett Wright with two out in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game. Ronny Brito then singled in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth. Brito came to the Jays in the Russell Martin trade last winter. He had a good season last year in the Pioneer League at age 19. This year he has not really advanced in his age 20 season.

Will Robertson hit a three run home run. As I said in a previous report, Robertson's swing needed a rework. I wouldn't judge him until next season.

Joseph Reyes in Bluefield is in his third season and he hasn't done much. But he did hit a three run home run on Thursday, a three run shot. Reyes still has a batting average under .200.

The two best starters in Vancouver in terms of WHIP and ERA are Grant Townsend and Nick Fraze, 34th and 22nd round picks. Both had WHIP's under one before Thursdays game.

Cesar Izturis Jr. played for Everett against Vancouver. He hit fourth and played shortstop. He is 19 years old.

Age matters in the DSL. Juan Pizarro has an OPS of 756 and is 17 years old. Francisco Fajardo has the second best OPS in the lineup on Thursday but he is already 19. Fajardo was 3-3, Pizarro 2-4. Pizarro had his average up to .333 three weeks ago before seeing it slide down to .289. The season can be long for young players.

Anyone have any updates on Groshans or O. Martinez? Groshans been out for a long time. Martinez hasn't played in quite a while either. Conine has great power but isn't going anywhere with a 40% K rate. Needs to cut down/fix his swing. Manoah supposed to make his Vancouver debut Saturday but I imagine will not pitch much this year. Probably throw a few games and if he looks good, can start in Dunedin next year.

Arden Zwelling had an awesome system-wide injury update this week. Wording on Groshans is pretty vague, but he sounds like there is no imminent return soon Tweet

With no August trade deadlines, things are moving a lot slower than I would have expected.
This is looking at lot like the offseason, with teams waiting at the last moment to be sure they're not overpaying rather than trying to acquire the best players available.

Do we know yet if Otto likes to get Blotto?

That's been ringing in my damned head ever since I saw the title of the post.
Mike Green - Friday, July 26 2019 @ 10:34 AM EDT (#377853) #
In answer to Gerry's question, Kirk starts next year in New Hampshire and Moreno in Dunedin. 

The Blue Jays are doing a clever thing with Kirk and Moreno- they are letting them DH a lot.  You don't want them to catch too many games in the minor leagues because of wear and tear on the knees.  And you don't want them to advance too quickly because Danny Jansen is a fine young player.  One year a level, catching about 1/2 time and DHing about 1/3, allows them to get plenty of PAs but not too much mileage on the knees.

Iím not sure Conineís problems are swing or approach related. I think he has Woodmanís disease (is pitch recognition issues), but time will tell.
Mike Green - Friday, July 26 2019 @ 11:11 AM EDT (#377856) #
There is a Woodman's disease- an inflammation of part of the lung associated with cutting live tries.  Don't think that Conine's K problem has its origin in the lung, but it might have something to do with treating the bat like an ax. 
Nigel - Friday, July 26 2019 @ 11:29 AM EDT (#377858) #
Thatís what I love about this site. I get educated on topics other than baseball:). Given itís an actual disease, Iíll refrain from using the term in that manner.

Oh,Conine, you poor sap. We've been pining fir you to spruce up your game and quit making an ash of yourself. It first appeared that you had Woodman's disease, but now it appears that you just can't see the Forrest (Wall) for the trees. I pity you, you poor son of a beech!

I think Drury demonstrated that moving Guerrero to first wouldn't necessary improve the defense.
dan gordon - Saturday, July 27 2019 @ 03:55 AM EDT (#377912) #
In Perez' last 3 starts, covering 19 IP, he's only allowed 2 runs, but he's still walking too many, with 10 BB over that span. At least he's making positive strides. Pardinho walked 4, but only gave up 2 hits, and struck out 6 in 5 IP.

Mentioned Addison Barger being placed on the Restricted List on the 13th. Marc pointed out that probably means PED suspension. Except it's 2 weeks later and milb has announced 5 suspensions in the meantime, but not Barger, who's still listed on the RL.

The full updated MLB Pipeline list:

3. J Groshans
4. A Manoah
5. E Pardinho
6. O Martinez
7. G Moreno
8. M Hiraldo
9. A Kloffenstein
10. S Reid-Foley
11. K Williams
12. A Kirk
13. K Smith
14. L Jimenez
15. G Conine
16. TJ Zeuch
17. P Murphy
18. D Brown

24. C Stevenson
25. T Morris
26. R McGuire
27. S Taylor
28. R Adams
29. J Murray
30. R Noda

For me this is an improvement over their previous list but it still has some oddities. Too high on all the 2019 picks that arenít Manoah, and on SRF. Low on Stevenson. Big miss in leaving out Otto Lopez.
scottt - Saturday, July 27 2019 @ 09:19 AM EDT (#377917) #
Otto isn't even one the guys would got pushed out by the new draftees.

On the top 100:

Bichette is still 8th.
Pearson is up to 14th.
Groshans is 73rd. He hasn't played much this year...

Manoah is the only one of the top 12 2019 draftees who doesn't make the top 100. They have him as a 50.
The don't have a lot of love for Pardinho. They give him a 65 fastball, a 60 curveball, 55 control. 50 on the slider and the changeup and yet, the sum of all that--they even say the most impressive is his ability to execute his pitches as part of a plan-- is just an overall 50 score.

Note: The have the Yankees' Devei Garcia at 66th.
Spencer Howard from the Phillies and Jordan Balazovic (82 overall)  from the Twins are 2 potential targets.

Gerry - Saturday, July 27 2019 @ 07:25 PM EDT (#377941) #
Nine K's in 5 innings for Joey Murray in AA today.

Two more hits for Kevin Smith, he's hot!
dan gordon - Sunday, July 28 2019 @ 12:05 AM EDT (#377946) #
Smith then went 0 for 3 in game 2 today. Still, he's hitting .371 with 3 HR's in his last 10, and is on a pace for close to 30 HR's in a 155 game season. He was 4 levels lower 2 years ago, and has a minor league career OPS of .802. Still deserves that spot in the top 30, IMO.

One who I don't have in the top 30 is Leonardo Jimenez. He hasn't hit much at all so far. Sure, he may be a very good defensive SS, but I want to see some indication he can hit before I'd have him in my top 30. His numbers look very similar to another top defensive SS in the system, Kevin Vicuna. Vicuna's consistently produced OPS numbers in the mid .600's for 5 years now, and is showing little sign of developing into a respectable hitter. Jimenez is right there with him so far. At least Vicuna steals some bases. Jimenez has 1 steal and 0 HR's in 255 pro AB's.
Kelekin - Sunday, July 28 2019 @ 12:13 AM EDT (#377947) #
Perhaps Addison Barger has been restricted for smoking too much of the devil's lettuce.
jerjapan - Sunday, July 28 2019 @ 11:27 AM EDT (#377953) #
Dan, I do see Vicuna and Jimenez as comparable - with a guy like Jimenez, in his second pro season with all of 255 career ABs, it's just harder for us to know how good his glove is, his makeup, how he looks to the scouts and development people.  Vicuna has over 1400 ABs, and while his glove might carry him to the bigs as a D first SS - I've heard him described as the best defender in our system, although he committed his 19th error yesterday - it's just easier to project Jimenez as more than that.  Vicuna is tiny, and was called 'frail-looking' at the time he signed - he may never hit. 

Both guys are interesting, but I have Vicuna at 40 on my personal list, Jimenez at 20.  I previously commented on his lack of steals - that one pro steal you mentioned only came yesterday, but Fangraphs has his run tool at 55.
Joey Murray is becoming a legit prospect to me, despite his pedestrian at best stuff.  Jay Blue thinks he must have an elite spin rate, but I will confess to not having much understanding of the stat or how to apply it to fringe prospects like Murray.  What is this 'inivisiball' he throws that's getting all these Ks?  These pitchability types can move fast through the low minors, so it's encouraging to see he's continuing to strike everyone out at AA.  Impressive for an 8th rounder in 2018.
Where the heck does the phrase 'devil's lettuce' come from?
Mike Green - Sunday, July 28 2019 @ 11:49 AM EDT (#377954) #
Lane Thomas hit 3 homers last night in Triple A. From the milb.com article, it seems that the Cardinals did two things to help him. The first was,  to me anyways, obvious- stop pissing around with him in the infield. They also made a slight adjustment to his batting stance.
uglyone - Sunday, July 28 2019 @ 11:58 AM EDT (#377956) #
There were 2 things that for me made jimenez a better prospect than vicuna - 1. That from the sounds of it his glove really is elite, while vicuna's defensive reviews have never kept up with the initial projection; 2.jimenez has had significantly better plate control numbers....well he did last year, and to start this year up until recently. Those numbers have been deteriorating and at the moment don't look very good, so yeah he may well end up on a vicuna path in the end. We'll see.
Nigel - Sunday, July 28 2019 @ 02:01 PM EDT (#377967) #
Two more hits today for Stevenson and a HR for Taylor. They would both be in my Jays top 20.
Gerry - Sunday, July 28 2019 @ 04:12 PM EDT (#377988) #

dan gordon - Sunday, July 28 2019 @ 10:29 PM EDT (#378076) #
"he must have an elite spin rate, but I will confess to not having much understanding of the stat"

jerjapan, the higher the rate of spin, the more the ball moves. A fastball has backspin on it (the top of the ball is rotating away from the plate, and the bottom of the ball is rotating toward the plate). This creates lower drag on the top of the ball as the air flow over the top of the ball as it travels through the air toward the plate is in the same direction as the spin. Conversely, there is higher drag on the bottom of the ball, as the spin is in the opposite direction of the air flow, and this creates lift. Not enough to make a "rising fastball" as people used to claim decades ago, but enough that the ball does not drop as much as it normally does due to gravity and air resistance, and the batter will tend to swing under the ball or hit the bottom of the ball and pop up. The faster the spin, the greater this effect. A classic 12 to 6 curveball has spin in the opposite direction, and will drop more than normal on the way to the plate, because there is greater drag on the top of the ball, creating higher pressure there, and forcing the ball down. Again, the higher the spin rate, the bigger the curve.

I highly recommend the book, "The Physics Of Baseball" for any serious baseball fan. One of the best books I've ever read.
ISLAND BOY - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 07:46 AM EDT (#378084) #
Thanks, dan gordon, for this explanation of why spin rate is important and how it works. I've only heard the term the last few years and while I understood a higher spin rate was more effective, I was ignorant on the mechanics of it.

I would guess that the backdoor slider, as they call it,would work in the same way, only the spin is sideways thus the drag forces the ball in a right-to-left or left-to-right direction.
Mike Green - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 08:57 AM EDT (#378090) #
Among Stevenson's hits was his 5th homer.  In the FSL, that's a decent number.    He hit .192/.286/.301 in April, but since then he's been great.  It looks like the club will probably keep him and Alejandro Kirk in Dunedin this year, and start them in New Hampshire next year. 
uglyone - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 09:26 AM EDT (#378092) #
Kirk is young but Stevenson should really be bumped up to AA imo. No reason to keep an older college pick in A ball all year when he's playing like this, with such an advanced approach at the plate.

I hope they're not keeping him down there due to the logjam of likely non-prospect OF at the higher levels:

AAA - Alford, Brito, Davis, Fields, Patterson
AA - Palacios, Wall, Lindquist, Espinal
Gerry - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 09:30 AM EDT (#378094) #
Dunedin are in the playoffs, NH are not. Is playoff experience more valuable than a month at AA?
uglyone - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 09:35 AM EDT (#378096) #
Fair point.
Mike Green - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 09:46 AM EDT (#378098) #
In fairness to the club, they skipped two levels for Stevenson in 2019 and they might start him off in Buffalo in 2020. 
uglyone - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 10:24 AM EDT (#378101) #
though when I think about it, i think i'd probably lean towards a month of AA being more valuable than A+ playoffs.

but maybe not.
hypobole - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 10:29 AM EDT (#378103) #
Is Forrest Wall a non-prospect?

137 EL position players have had 200+ PA's. Wall's 134 wRC+ ranks 16th in that group, but he's younger than all but 2 of those ahead of him. NH does favour LHB's, but he's hit better on the road (.294/.393/.492) than at home (.255/.324/.383).

His CF defence is seems to have gone from minus to plus, both by Davenport's numbers and the scouting reports last year vs this year.



85bluejay - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 10:39 AM EDT (#378105) #
If his defence is now a plus, then Wall is a definite prospect IMO.
bpoz - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 10:41 AM EDT (#378106) #
There is a definite trend in the drafting and development of this FO.

They draft a lot of older players and promote them aggressively. Biggio is a good example. His 1st full year was Dunedin and he did not dominate. At Dunedin and NH he struck out a lot. In Buffalo he adjusted V fast all his good numbers were still good as far as I can see. His bb/k ratio vastly improved. Now with the Jays his strikeouts are high again. He also has a terrible BA.

jerjapan - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 10:54 AM EDT (#378110) #
Wall is a streaky player, but it appears that he is a solid CF, which makes him a legit, if fringy, prospect in my books.  Uglyone has definitely opened my eyes to a number of elements of prospect evaluation and has a consistently informed opinion on the matter, but Wall strikes me as exactly the sort of prospect he'd be down on.  Definitely the sort of guy who should be promoted to see if he can handle AAA - frankly, I'd like him to get a shot in TO by the end of the year to decide if he is worth a 40 man spot, but Im guessing the FO wants to keep him off the 40 man to preserve roster spots and would rather risk losing him in the rule v.  Gerry noted this elsewhere, but I do hope the prospects we acquire in the next few days are not roster-crunch types again - what's the point in acquiring a Forest Wall-type if you lose Forest Wall?  I know it's not a big loss - but I'd like to join the chorus calling for young lottery-ticket prospects. 

Dan gordon, thanks for the explanation!  I fear I'm not the type to read a book on physics, although if there was to be one exception, your recommendation would be it.  Either way, your answer was informative for me. 


Mike Green - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 11:12 AM EDT (#378112) #
BP's FRAA metric has Wall at precisely average so far in 2019 and below average in 2017 and 2018.  He has 9 homers, 42 walks and 94 strikeouts in 409 PAs.  He turns 24 in November. 
hypobole - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 11:35 AM EDT (#378113) #
Not sure what your point is, Mike. Wall's 1 yr older than Stevenson and one level higher. Has a 134 wRC+ vs Cal's 141.

The below average defence last year is probably one big reason why he was left unprotected and not taken. His reads and routes were not good, but he was also shifted from 2B to CF only a couple of years ago. If his defence has improved, which all metrics point to, I don't see how Cal is an excellent prospect and Wall a non-prospect.
jerjapan - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 11:42 AM EDT (#378115) #
Stevenson has certainly come a lot further a lot faster than Wall, and Wall has all those Ks.  Stevenson's K% and BB% are very impressive.
But you are right that Wall hasn't been a CF for long, which gets me wondering - is there evidence about the impact playing the wrong position has on your offense?  I hear that idea often in regards to Vlad moving to 1B, but I don't know if anyone has measured this.  
Also, is there any evidence as to how long it takes to make such a transition defensively?  In other words, is Wall's apparent defensive improvement simply a matter of reps?


Shoeless Joe - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 11:55 AM EDT (#378119) #
Stevenson has better plate control, but Wall has more power. I was thinking that its far enough in the season to consider Wall a prospect again, albeit more like as a 4th outfielder/utility type.
uglyone - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 11:59 AM EDT (#378120) #
If Wall's defense has actually become a plus, instead of his Ben Revere-like defensive projection before, that changes his profile for me for sure. I can't find much to love about Wall's hitting line - needs a lot of babip for just an ok average, and strikes out quite a lot without much power. and old for the level of course. definitely a hitting line that needs plus defensive projection imo. I admit that I've been assuming his defense is sub par based on perhaps outdated scouting reports.


Stevenson's hitting line looks much more promising to me - the guy just doesn't swing and miss much (~4% swinging strike rate in milb so far), walks plenty, and keeps his average up near his babip. the only weak spot is his lack of power. And i was under the impression that he was a plus-defense potential prospect, though again those might be outdated scouting reports.

and stevenson probably gets bonus points for having much less pro experience, too.
Shoeless Joe - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 12:14 PM EDT (#378123) #
Stevenson hits the ball on the ground 53.1% and Wall has a ground ball rate of only 35.0%. It hard to hit for power if you don't put the ball in the air, so Im not sure that will ever be part of Stevenson's game. However I think players with great contact skills flame out a much lower rate that someone with just average plate control like Wall.
Marc Hulet - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 12:31 PM EDT (#378125) #
Woods-Richardson has been promoted with the trade, up from Low-A to Dunedin. Kay is in AAA as expected.
Mike Green - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 12:35 PM EDT (#378127) #
Hypobole, you had said that Wall went from minus to plus this year.  He hasn't, and (to the extent that minor league defnesive stats have any value), I would use two or three year stats.  Wall seems to be a slightly below average defender and Stevenson a considerably above-average one. 

My larger point is all about what makes for success offensively.  In my view, the combination of excellent plate control, good speed and enough pop to keep a pitcher honest (Stevenson's) is a winning offensive combination, while medium range power and tolerable strike zone control (Wall's) is less so, particularly for a somewhat older prospect.  Your mileage may vary.
uglyone - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 12:35 PM EDT (#378128) #
18yr old in A+ is impressive. I mean, as long as he pitches well.

I heard the Mets had actually promoted him to A+ already, though he had yet to pitch there.
Mike Green - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 12:40 PM EDT (#378129) #
Incidentally, Wall pops up an awful lot and has always done so.  Stevenson doesn't pop-up much at all. 
hypobole - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 12:46 PM EDT (#378134) #
Yeah, even without the power, Stevenson's the better prospect. Just don't think Wall is a non-prospect. He should move up to AAA and Cal to AA.

As for the Dunedin playoffs, can't Cal get promoted and still go back once the AA season is over? I'm sure I've seen promoted players do that.
scottt - Monday, July 29 2019 @ 12:49 PM EDT (#378136) #
Wall is a contact hitter and was never known for his power.
Stevenson is a guy who doesn't chase, but has very little power.
They're both left bats.

I think we'll see slow progression from now on.
Guy will have demolish a level, AAA included to get a call, unless it's to replace someone on the IL.
