Winter League Update-Tobi Stoner Looking Good

Let’s look at some of the more interesting pitching prospects in winter ball:

Pitchers
VWL

Name W L IP H ER BB BB/9 K K/9 ERA .AVG WHIP
Lance Broadway 1 2 31.1 22 10 15 4.3 26 7.47 2.87 .196 1.18
Junior Guerra 1 1 18 19 7 12 6.0 16 8.0 3.50 .275 1.72
Chris Mason 1 1 24 26 12 6 2.25 12 4.5 4.50 .271 1.33
League AVG 3.86 6.54 4.85 .284 1.53

Though not considered a prospect anymore, Broadway has been effective this winter. Mason and Guerra have both struggled.

AFL

Name W L IP H ER BB BB/9 K K/9 ERA .AVG WHIP
Jenrry Mejia 1 3 11.1 19 15 11 8.74 13 10.32 11.91 .358 2.65
Scott Moviel
1 0 12.2 13 4 8 5.68 8 5.68 2.84 .271 1.66
Eric Niesen
0 0 3.2 8 10 3 7.36 2 4.90 24.55 .444 3.00
Josh Stinson
0 0 9.1 12 5 7 6.75 7 6.75 4.82 .343 2.04
League AVG 4.09 7.94 5.11 .278 1.55

While Mejia’s #’s are putrid, fans still have to be excited with the scouting reports. His stuff is ace quality (FB 94-98, 2-seamFB 88-91, CB 78-80), and his groundball rates (GO/AO 3.20) are still very solid. Mejia still needs to work on command and working ahead of hitters. Moviel started the AFL strong, but has struggled lately. Having never pitched past High A, Moviel has shown some promise. 2010 will be a big year in Moviel’s development. Niesen struggled before a strained oblique sidelined him. Stinson has been better over his last 5 outings.
DWL

Tobi Stoner 4 1 36 24 6 9 2.25 23 5.75 1.50 .190 0.92

Tobi Stoner has been very impressive so far this winter. His last start 7IP 0R 2BB 2K. Stoner has easily been the best Mets minorleague pitcher this winter.
