Minor League Catch-All 2021

Recommended Posts

Really stupid question for which I'm too lazy to look up the answer: if the Blue Jays are playing in Buffalo, where is Buffalo playing?

Adley rutschman has really turned it on in AA. After striking out like 35% in the first week his K rate is now down to 18% (15% since game 7) with a 20% walk rate and 8 homers with a 293 avg. 

 

He is looking really good right now but for the orioles that is a bit uncomfortable as they kinda try to slow cook their prospects and bring up all the guys together which will be hard to Justify if he keeps that up another 2 months

So who can tell me what's going on with Elijah Tatis ? He should be 19 now. Has he filled out a little bit ? Is he playing anywhere ? Is he also having "visa" issues ?

Pretty sure he is in Arizona. Plenty of pictures of him on Twitter. Hector Gomez tweets about him a lot.

I don't think there were any expectations of his playing on a full season team, right?  Probably destined for the AZ half  season team.

I'd like to think they would want him in full season ball asap. He is already 19 and 20 in September.

Fernando Tatis, Jr. is still only 22 made it to AA when he was 18 . The hype we have heard from Tatis Sr. is he thinks Elijah is more talented than Fernando, Jr. I know less teams makes it harder but he is one of the more interesting names I'd like to follow and to see him in full season ball.

Where's Henzman?

He was assigned to BHam and immediately put on the IL at the start of the MiLB season.

Nolan Gorman has 3 HRs tonight and 7 in his last 5 games. If he can even pretend to play 2B he's going to be a lot of fun.

When did Tatis Sr. state that? I assume that it was before Jr. became a super star.

I think Sr said elijah had more physical talent but not quite the work ethic of his brother. 

Not sure how much we can give on that though. 

We probably shouldn't expect that outcome with any prospect though, if he becomes an mlb regular that would be a success story.

I agree, and if Elijah could be become half the player that Jr. is, it would be a great signing. However, I would still find it interesting to know when Sr. made that statement. After all, if he thought that Elijah had more talent, before he himself realized that Jr. was to become a phenom, the statement would be far less impressive.

Maybe that was a bit of fatherly motivation to his still-teenage son.

Cade Cavalli promoted to double AA. Dude might be the best starting pitching prospect in baseball in short order. He has been nuts.

Some local good Samaritans will probably help out.  Hope so.

What is the context here?  Why did this just all of the sudden happen in the middle of the season?  I thought most guys had apartments in the towns where they played?
