Down in Sarasota, the teams are REALLY trying not to pull anything, as according to milb.com, they have been warming up for their doubleheaders for going on 7 hours now

Alexis Oliveras was promoted from Billings to Dayton. He's in CF tonight and Fellhauer's in right. Kind of surprising.

Excellent first start by Wood. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt regarding his BB's tonight. It very well could have been nerves. He was a bit rough in the 7th, but one heck of a job! :clap:

Sucks for Wood not to get his first W in AAA

No wonder Oliveras got moved up. Yorman is playing CF tonight for Billings. Quite a move for a kid who's still 16.

And he singled his first time up.

Wow I wouldnt have expected that. I guess they are pretty happy with his eye and contact rates. Seems like a really big jump.

Is the Pioneer league a step up from the GCL?

Is the Pioneer league a step up from the GCL?

Absolutely. Its usually for older, more experienced college guys. Think High A (Sarasota) and Low A (Dayton) as a similar comparison. High Rookie (Billings) and low Rookie (GCL).

Grande Donkey
07-25-2009, 10:28 PM
Is the Pioneer league a step up from the GCL?Yes. A fairly big step too.

GCL is mostly raw high school kids that have just been drafted or young Latin signees.

Pioneer is mostly second year HS guys or raw college players.

At least how it always seems to me. If Yorman can hold his own in Billings then that is a great sign for his future success.

Gotcha, I always wondered what the difference was between the two.

I wonder who the youngest kid ever is in that league?

King Felix was in A Ball at 17. IDK if he was in the pioneer league before that or not though.

Grande Donkey
07-25-2009, 11:08 PM
Yorman is the youngest player in the Pioneer League by nearly a full year. There are only a hand full of guys that were born in 1991 in the league and Y-Rod was born in '92.

Grande Donkey
07-25-2009, 11:09 PM
and he just homered... solid debut for the young Y-Rod.

Crazy thing about 'ole Yorman making it to Billings. I was just thinking over the last few days that this kid could realistically be in Billings next season and be in Dayton OF next year by years end (@17). And now he goes and moves that timeline up on me. He could be (a bit of a stretch but) could be in the Futures game next year. This kid just moved up my own personal list a bit.

Dang! Any chance he starts next year in Dayton - at least til the short-season leagues start? I'm shocked he didn't finish he year in the GCL also. Was that his first pro HR?

How was C Mark Fleury ranked defensively going into the draft?

I am asking because he gave up his 8th Passed Ball Saturday

Im not blaming him 100% for all of the passed balls because he is new at working with all of these pitchers but something must something wrong in regards to his communication with the pitchers in terms of signals for pitches, his game calling or something else that I haven't mentioned

Anyone else have any thoughts?

Not saying 8 PBs is OK, but I can be pretty forgiving with a guy in his first season of Rookie ball - not too worried unless it continues into next year.

He's supposed to be solid behind the plate, and have a strong throwing arm.
