Looking at Fraizer's stats, do they still feel he can stick at SS? He has played SS 55 times this year with SAR. with a .981 FP, with only 16 games at 1st (.980 FP) 10 games at 3rd (.926 FP) and 6 in LF (1.000)

And Yonder walks again.... 2-2 with 2 BB's

Yonder through his first 25 PA, and probably the end of the year. .316/.440/.368 .808 OPS to start his professional career

Stewart pitches a scoreless inning with 1 hit, 1BB, 1 K

Possibly start in AA as well.

Who gets to the show faster, Stewart or Yonder?

Brodie Pullen pitched a scoreless inning for Sarasota as well. I guess they are converting him to a pitcher.

Today was the last game of the season for Sarasota. Unlike Dayton, Chattanooga, and Louisville, they don't play tomorrow. It was nice to see Yonder and Frazier finish with good games.

My guess is Alonso and Stewart both begin next season in AA.

Possible, but very unlikely lol. As far as the earlier question, of Alonso or Stewart first, I think the main issue playing in Alonso's favor is he is on the 40 man, so he could get called up next September simply because of that, where Stewart isn't and will have to fully earn it. If things were equal, I would take Stewart, but they aren't so I will go with Alonso.

Zach Stewart finished with an impressive first pro season:

33 IP, 26 H, 0 HR, 14 BB/36 K, 1.46 GO/FO, 1.09 ERA

Very impressive numbers by Stewart. I loved the pick at the time and nothing has changed since. I think he'll probably get a spring training invite next year and probably begin the season in Double-A with a chance to reach the majors next summer.

I'm thinking that around July of next year he and Cozart will be making one mean middle IF for SAR.

Josh Beal throws a 1-2-3 8th inning but Billings trails 5-1 after eight innings. Beal has been very impressive with Billings: 24.2 IP, 22 H, 8 BB/37 K, 2.19 ERA. He's only 20 years old so keep an eye on him.

I'm curious - does anyone have splits for Billings? Is Buchholz hitting both lefties and righties well? I've been high on him since he was drafted but I try to keep in mind this is a short season league and a hitter's league - it isn't all that rare for a prospect to get hot and have a scary looking summer there.
