Watching the game on milb.tv, and I must say Train *might* (I said might!) be back. Wish I could see his velocity, though.

Great pitching for Dayton tonight, in a 4-1 win, from Daniel Tuttle (6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 K); Chad Rogers, whom I'm not familiar with (2 IP, 0 H, 1 BB, 3 K); and Blaine Howell, who is unscored upon for the season (1 IP, 0 H, 2 K). The big hit was Devin Lohman's 2-run double.

Bakersfield won 6-4. They are now 8-6 on the season.

Finally got to see Daniel Tuttle pitch in person tonight and was kinda surprised to see that he is essentially a side-arm pitcher, which is a bit refreshing to see from a starter

I would say Tuttle is more 3/4 then side arm... but this Rogers kid is one i would like to know more about if anyone has something on him. (MPH, Type Pitches, Starter, where did he come from)

The only thing I know about Rogers is that he missed playing time after being bitten by a shark.

Here's a recent article from the DDN about Rogers:

Stephen Hunt homered for Bakersfield in his first game of the season.

Bakersfield leads the California League in runs, hits and OPS by a fairly considerable amount. My question: We all know that the California is a renowned hitters league, but is the Bakersfield park more pronounced than most in that respect?

(FWIW, the Blaze are middle of the pack in home runs.)

Bakersfield plays quite hitter friendly compared to all of the minor leagues, but here is how it plays compared to the entire California League:


TM R H 2B HR BB K
Bakersfield 1.02 1.00 1.09 1.10 1.01 0.99
High Desert 1.20 1.09 1.06 1.31 1.05 0.99
Inland Empire 0.89 0.96 0.89 0.80 0.99 1.01
Lake Elsinore 0.92 0.98 1.03 0.79 1.01 0.99
Lancaster 1.11 1.05 0.99 1.22 0.97 0.94
Modesto 0.96 1.00 1.09 0.77 0.99 1.02
Rancho Cuca. 0.95 0.98 0.95 0.95 1.00 1.00
San Jose 0.94 0.97 0.98 1.01 0.94 1.04
Stockton 1.00 0.98 0.94 1.16 1.01 1.03

Thanks, Doug. Assuming that's over some period of time (as opposed to just this year), we can take from it that the current Bakersfield team is, indeed, producing very well offensively. At least, at this early stage of the season.

That was the most recent three year park factor (2008-2010).
