A Few quick thoughts-

I see you!

When Fangraphs added Ortiz to the Top 15, I wasn’t impressed. I went as far as to say he wouldn’t have been my choice for the spot (that said, I’d still have Lopez there over Ortiz).

But he has looked really good since he slid into that group. Over his last three outings he’s been fantastic. In those three games he’s thrown 17 innings, striking out 18 on his way to a good slash line of-

ERA 2.65 FIP 3.53 0.71 WHIP K-29% BB-4.8%

Really nice work, keep it rolling Luis!

Kyle Nicholas. After a scorching hot start followed by a cold front, Kyle has been pitching better as of late and had a solid week.

Mike Burrows had a really nice week. I get the surface numbers don’t look at all like fans had hoped, but if we dig a little deeper the line is much better than most think. Why? In his second and third start in AAA, he gave up 10 runs in 8.2 innings. Looking at the other 26.2 innings he has an ERA of 3.12. He’s made some good adjustments, but those 10 innings loom large. The sample size here is small either way, but all in all he’s thrown better than most think.

Batter you than me-

Hudson Head and Connor Scott swapped hot-cold spots here. Head, who had been really killing the ball, cooled off and had a pretty rough week while Scott, who had been down and out found himself red hot.

Keep on truckin’

It’s one week, I get that. But man, Endy just keeps trucking and has started at AA right where he left off in A+. His bat, approach, and swing just continue to wreak havoc! As I mentioned a few weeks ago, there is still room on the Endy Bandwagon. Grab a seat before they’re gone.

  1. FINALLY they promoted Endy! Man, that took too long.

    Fraizer and Peguero need to have good Septembers, important to finish strong after underwhelming results through the bulk of the season.

    I am concerned for Swaggerty and especially Head at this point. Things look rough.
