    Wednesday 9/07/11 Minor League Updates

    Ismael Guillon, who has a rough year to say the least, struck out the side in the first against Helena. Billings up to bat in the bottom of the first.

    Steven Selsky gets a one-out double that amounts to nothing. No score after one.

    19 players have played 15 games or more at Billings this season. 11 of them have an OPS over 820. Of those 11, five are 21 or younger.

    8 players have a slugging percentage of 500 or better.

    5 have an obp over 400.

    7 have a BA over 300, with four over 350.

    Last year's monster class that is now demolishing the Midwest League had four players over an 800 OPS, no 500 slugging percentages, one 400 obp, and four 300 BAs.

    Interesting to see how this squad performs next season in Dayton and above.

    Helena gets a run in the top half of the second. Billings gets singles by Dickinson and Waldrop to start the bottom of the second but nothing more materializes. 1-0 Helena.


    NOTE: They are playing tricks with the play-by-play. Dickinson and Waldrop somehow lost their base hits.

    Guillon pitches a 1-2-3 third. Five Ks so far.

    Hesitant to post this since Billings lost hits last time I did.
    Selsky walks. Scores on a Ryan Wright single and and an error.
    Wright scores on a Maddox single.
    Maddox moves to second on a wild pitch and is plated by a single by Waldrop.
    Three apiece.

    Very interesting stats. I wonder wonder how many of these guys will emerge as prospects. Other than Waldrop and Buckley, who looks the most promising?

    Two-out double by Juan Perez leads to nothing.

    Waldrop and Buckley are clearly the best prospects right now, but there are some really interesting guys here.

    IMO, Perez looks really interesting at SS as a 19-year-old. He's a LH hitter with good plate discipline and really solid pop for a middle infielder. Juan Silva is only 20, but he's shown good plate discipline as well, though he plays LF, a less premium position. Bryson Smith is old for the league (22) and needs to be challenged. He's clearly a monster in Billings, showing patience, power, and speed. Plus, he plays CF.

    Helena jumps back ahead 4-3. A very, very wild pitch on strike three puts a runner on second and a two-out single brings the runner home. Muhammad strikes out three in the inning and only gives up a single but still manages to let the go-ahead run to score.
