We are going to take a look how some of the more interesting prospects are fairing in winter ball:
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.
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.
Francisco Pena has struggled early on with 10k’s in 12 games. While Valdespin is off to a solid start.
