Farm Stats & Stuff – 6.15.06
Posted by Jason A. Churchill on June 16, 2006
RHP Edgar Guaramato has a 1.73 G/F… RHP Lance Beus at 1.60 and LHP Justin Thomas (Wis) was at 1.87 before his promotion… RHP Jason Snyder leads all M's pitchers with 15 wild pitches.
RHP Mark Lowe posted a 2.15 G/F ratio at Inland and LHP Eric O'Flaherty put up even better tendencies at 2.06 groundouts per flyouts…Lowe held righties to a ridiculous .101 average in the Cal League. Wow. O'Flaherty limited left-handers to a .154 BAA while in Inland… RHP Stephen Kahn, on the other hand, sits at 0.92 G/F but RH bats hit just .096 — yikes.
O'Flaherty is at 2.60 G/F in AA so far and LHP Cesar Jimenez posted a 2.27 at SA and has just a 1.02 in Tacoma. Go figure.
LHP Adam Pettyjohn is at 1.58 G/F through last night's start… RHP Clint Nageotte is still at 2.18…
In smaller samples in the Venezuelan Summer League…
RHP Victor Duarte has fanned 12 in 7 2/3 innings and has a 10.00 G/F and a .154 BAA… might be something to watch there… RHP Miguel Marquez — 31-8 K/BB, 1.74 G/F, .208 BAA… nice.
OF Casey Craig is hitting just .163 versus LHP with 12 Ks… But IF Ron Garth, all-star starter Ron Garth, excuse me, is hitting .350/.435/.600 versus lefties…
Oddly, the left-handed bat of 2B Luis Valbuena is hitting .327 against southpaws but just .241 against righties…
Just call him Charlie Manson because SS/3BMatt Tuiasosopo murders left-handed pitching to the tune of a .397 average…And if Tui is Manson, I guess OF Mike Wilson is the Hillside Strangler and the Green River Killer all rolled into one… Wilson is hitting .331 with a .595 SLG versus LHP…
Another oddity, 1B Thomas Hubbard is hitting .236 against RHP but .290 with power versus lefties… LHP Robert Rohrbaugh is nothing if not consistent — he's limiting righties to a .229 average and lefties at .231…
LHP Shawn Nottingham has trouble versus righties at .295 BAA but owns the lefty stick — .163. Where Nottingham makes up for it is that RHB have a .388 SLG against him… So many singles.
LHP Travis Blackley is back to making lefties look silly… .171 BAA — while righties are slugging just .419 despite a .271 average.
At AA San Antonio, 2B Michael Garciaparra hit just .238 versus lefties but .321 versus RHP. In Triple-A Tacoma, it's a reversal — .450 in 20 ABs versus lefties, and a strong .300 versus RHP… but, shhhh! Don't tell Mike.
OF/DH Chris Snelling's inconsistencies can be traced to the righty-lefty factor as he's hitting just .232 against RHP. That won’t last long.
