Winter League Update-Thole Continues to Excel

We are going to take a look how some of the more interesting prospects are fairing in winter ball:

Hitters

VWL

Name AB H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K .AVG .OBP .SLG .OPS
Chris Carter 76 23 4 1 2 7 9 11 .303 .376 .461 .837
Jose Coronado 67 23 4 1 0 9 10 8 .343 .423 .433 .856
Josh Thole 84 35 8 0 1 14 20 7 .417 .533 .548 1.080
League AVG .284 .363 .428 .791

Josh Thole continues to hit, hit, hit. He continues to lead the league in BA and OBP….What impresses me the most about him, is that he does not deviate from his line drive approach, as opposed to trying to hit for more power. His BB/K rate is outstanding. Coronado and Carter are also doing well. They are just above average in all categories. The VWL clearly looks like a hitters league.
AFL

Name AB H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K .AVG .OBP .SLG .OPS
Ike Davis 72 23 7 0 4 14 6 18 .319 .367 .583 .950
Nick Evans 28 5 1 0 1 2 1 11 .173 .207 .321 .528
Reese Havens 29 8 2 0 1 3 6 7 .276 .400 .448 .848
Ruben Tejada 53 13 3 0 1 8 4 9 .245 .317 .358 .675
League AVG .278 .355 .436 .791

Ike Davis has continued to hit for power, and Reese Havens shows the ability to control the strikezone with a .400 OBP despite a .276 AVG. Ruben Tejada looks to be wearing down after a strong AFL start. The 20-year old Tejada has played a lot of baseball this year. Nick Evans has had a rough Fall, just continuing a disastrous year.
DWL

Name AB H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K .AVG .OBP .SLG .OPS
Francisco Pena 39 7 3 1 0 4 1 10 .179 .200 .308 .508
Jordany Valdespin 19 6 0 0 1 2 0 2 .316 .316 .474 .789
League AVG .260 .327 .359 .686

Francisco Pena has struggled early on with 10k’s in 12 games. While Valdespin is off to a solid start.
