Notes and Highlights on a Friday – October 24, 2014

Jonathan Mayo and Jim Callis take a look at the Brewers prospects in the Arizona Fall League with a special focus on former Timber Rattlers Tyrone Taylor (’13) and Clint Coulter (’13, ’14):

Glendale, the team with the Brewers prospects, are 7-6-1 and leading the West Division. Glendale hosts Salt River today at 2:35pm CDT. According to the scoreboard page, Mike Strong (’12, ’13) is a scheduled reliever for Glendale today. Click that link later today for the rest of the starting lineup.

I’ll have a more complete winter league update on Monday, but looking at yesterday’s action in the AFL saw Glendale win 2-1. Wei-Chung Wang (’14) earned the win. Tyler Wagner (’13) got the save.

Pitching Coach: Chris Hook

Glendale hosts the Mesa Solar Sox today at 2:35pm CDT.  According to this boxscore, Taylor will leadoff and play center and  Nick Ramirez will bat seventh and play first base for Glendale.

The Arizona Fall League will be used as a laboratory for the new Pace of Game Initiative.  Click that link to read the full story.  A few of the rules:

A hitter must keep one foot inside the batter’s box throughout his plate appearance. Exceptions include a foul ball or a foul tip, a pitch forcing the batter out of the batter’s box, a request for time out being granted, a wild pitch or a passed ball and several others.

Intentional walks will no longer include the pitcher lobbing four balls outside the strike zone. Instead, the manager will signal to the home-plate umpire and the batter will take first base.

Each team will be permitted three “timeout” conferences covering any meeting involving pitchers and catchers, managers, coaches and batters. Timeouts during pitching changes and those that result from an injury or other emergency will not be counted toward the limit.

More at the link.

As someone who had some experience with a pitch clock – many years ago in the Northern League -this is all well and good…But, it all comes down to enforcement.  And as someone who has experienced the “Keep One Foot In” rule….oh, brother…From Top Five Tuesday: Weird Endings…

1.) April 30, 2007 – Backstory: Before the 2007 began, Minor League Baseball tried to initiate some policies that would speed the game. Umpires, players, and coaches were informed before the start of the season that if a batter needed a little time between pitches, they could only move one foot out of the batter’s box. If a batter walked completely outside the box with both feet, a strike would be called. Now, let’s fast forward to the bottom of the ninth inning at Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium in late April of 2007.   Leury Bonilla, who had homered in the bottom of the seventh inning off Dragons reliever Pedro Viola, stepped to the plate with Wisconsin trailing 3-1. Bonilla was the tying run in the bottom of the ninth due to Ogui Diaz reaching first on a two-out error on Dayton third baseman Juan Francisco. Bonilla was down in the count 0-1 to start. Plate umpire Alex Ortiz called the next pitch from Viola a strike to run the count to 0-2. Bonilla thought it the pitch should have been called a ball. He decided to collect himself instead of saying anything to Ortiz. Unfortunately, Bonilla took a couple of steps out of the right-handed batter’s box as he walked up the third base line. Ortiz immediately called a strike on Bonilla. That strike just happened to be strike three. The final out of the game came on a called third strike that was never even thrown to the plate.

Yeah. Let’s NOT have that happen again.

I am going to be taking some time off from work.  I will be gone the rest of this week and all of next week.  The next post on the blog will be on Monday, October 20.  Some of the features on the website will be returning that week, too.

I, for one, welcome our new overlords – October 6, 2014

The Royals and Orioles completed sweeps in the ALDS setting up an ALCS matchup that is interesting.  Imagine, if you will, it’s 1976 to 1983.  Imagine how much fun an Orioles-Royals ALCS would have been in that timeframe.  But, they were never opponents.  The Royals won the AL West from 1976-1978 (losing to the Yankees each time), again in 1980 (Beating the Yankees), and in 1984 (Losing to the Tigers).  The Orioles won the AL East in 1979 (Beating the Angels) and 1983 (Beating the White Sox).

Hail, Royals

Hail, Royals

Adam Jones as a Rattler in 2004

Lorenzo Cain (’09) had a some great catches – again – to help the Royals move on with their Game Three win over the Angels:

Meanwhile, the Orioles beat the Tigers 2-1 to gain the ALCS.  Adam Jones (’04) loves it! BUT, he also realizes that they aren’t done yet.

In news involving more recent Timber Rattlers, The Baseball America Chat about their Top 20 Prospect for the MWL was held on Friday (Link is behind subscriber wall).  There was only one question involving a 2014 Timber Rattler and it was about pitcher Taylor Williams, who did not make the list:

Curious (Wisconsin): What did evaluators see that kept Taylor Williams off this list?

J.J. Cooper: He might have made the list in a thinner league. Just the depth of the league. He’s a future power reliever in a league where relievers have a real tough time making the list.


Clint Coulter is still making news in Instructional League:

In instructional league this fall, the Brewers have begun a long-discussed position change for Coulter. Director of player development Reid Nichols said Coulter has settled into right field and has also seen time at first base and third base.

One of Coulter’s best tools has always been his strong arm, which Nichols said is one of the reasons a switch to right field can work.

“He’s picked it up well,” Nichols said. “He gets good jumps on balls off the bat, which is unique for a guy going out there for the first time.

“He fits the best there of everywhere we’ve seen him.”

There is more at that link on some possible future Timber Rattlers players.

Here’s a look at Timber Rattlers Alumni who played in the NL West this year:

Adam Moore (’06): 9 games, 2-for-10, 2B, 0HR, RBI

Possible Future Rattlers – October 3, 2014

The Baseball America chats about their Top 20 lists for the Pioneer League and Arizona League happened earlier.  The Q & A of the Brewers farmhands:

Bill Mitchell on the Arizona League Chat:

Jacob Gatewood (Nearby): It’s my 19th birthday today. A spot on your top 20 list would have made for a nice present. Just sayin’. Anyway, do you see me being able to improve my plate discipline next year as Joey Gallo did this year?

Bill Mitchell: Jacob Gatewood, the Brewers compensation round pick, shows plus raw power at the plate and the potential to stay at shortstop. He’s got some swing mechanics to work on and needs to make better contact in order to get to his power potential. Definitely a work in progress. But I wouldn’t want to compare Gatewood to Joey Gallo at this point.

Ben (Leland Grove): Medeiros and Touki had their struggles in the AZL, from what I’ve read. Who would have ranked higher for you, and who will climb through the minors faster?

Bill Mitchell: Both first-round picks (Arizona’s Touki Toussaint and Milwaukee’s Kodi Medeiros) struggled at times in their pro debuts, mostly with commanding their pitches and trying to do too much out of the gate. I probably would have ranked Touki the highest of the two. While Medeiros will be given every chance to start, there are still a significant number of scouts that believe his future will be in the back end of the bullpen.

Dave (Appleton, Wi): How close were the Brewers other top picks Medeiros and Gatewood from making the list?

Bill Mitchell: I’ve already addressed Medeiros and Gatewood in previous questions. To clarify, Medeiros came up just a fraction of an inning short of having enough playing time to qualify for the list but likely would have ranked in the 11-20 range. Gatewood was on my 21-30 group of prospects this year.

Steve (Madtown): I’d love to hear your thoughts on the Brewers that you got a good look at not on the list. Medeiros, Gatewood, Denson (if you saw him on rehab), Lara? Thanks

Bill Mitchell: I’ll briefly divert from AZL discussion to address one name you mention— Gilbert Lara — primarily because I think he could be a player that we’ll be talking about on next year’s chat. Lara is a 16-year-old shortstop who signed with the Brewers for just over $3 million in July. He’s playing with the Brewers instructional league team right now and has been the talk of Arizona so far. Still very raw approach at the plate and the swing needs lots of work, but this kid has some serious pop.

Bill Mitchell also had the Pioneer League Chat:

Warren (New London): I liked Brandon Diaz last year in the Arizona League. He got off to an excellent start here and then tailed off quite a bit, and I’m wondering what Pioneer League observers think of him.

Bill Mitchell: Brandon Diaz just missed the list. The 2013 8th round pick is a nice centerfielder with twitchy athleticism who barrels up the ball. He has above-average speed with good instincts on the basepaths. Diaz projects as a fourth or fifth outfielder, and I like his chances to getting there.

Dave (Appleton): What were the differences for Devin Williams this year as opposed to last year?

Bill Mitchell: Williams, the Brewers 2nd round pick in 2013, improved his slider this year, but the biggest change came with maturity and understanding the professional game. It was a real up and down season for the right-hander, but results improved significantly in the second half of the Pioneer League season. He still has a lot of work to do, especially in improving the fastball command, but his performance in August is a positive sign.

Dave (Appleton): Better pitching prospect for the Brewers, Devin Williams or Kodi Medeiros?
Bill Mitchell: Definitely Medeiros. His stuff is better, although like many young pitchers he’s got to get better command. I said in my recent AZL chat that many scouts still believe he will wind up in the back end of the bullpen, but he’s a starter for now.

Dave (Appleton, WI): What happened to Tucker Neuhaus this year? From just looking at his stats this year, it looks like he really struggled.

Bill Mitchell: I didn’t get favorable comments from scouts on Neuhaus’ performance at the plate and his name didn’t come up in prospect discussions with the managers. He’s gotten too big to handle shortstop, so there will be much more pressure on his bat to develop as a third baseman.

In the AL Division Series games, last night, the Orioles won big and the Royals won in extra innings.

How about these catches by former Rattler Lorenzo Cain?

Former Rattler Chris Tillman (’07) was the winning pitcher for the Orioles and talks with the media after the game.

Here’s Tillman striking out the side first inning:

Looking at today’s playoff pitching matchups. There are a few of today’s starters who pitched against the Rattlers.

Yordano Ventura, who gets the start for the Royals tonight, pitched for Kane County in 2011. In two starts against the Rattlers, he did not allow a run on four hits and two walks over nine innings with 15 strikeouts. He did not have a decision in either game.

Clayton Kershaw starts for the Dodgers tonight. He was a member of the Great Lakes Loons in 2007 and made one start against the Rattlers on May 8 at Great Lakes. Kershaw got the win as he allowed two runs on five hits with two walks and eight strikeouts over 5-2/3 innings. The Rattlers scored two runs off Kershaw in the second inning, but the Loons scored five – two earned – in the fourth off Steve Richard.

Time to take a look at Rattler Alumni in the AL East:

Adam Jones (’04): 159 games, .281/.311/.469, 29HR, 96RBI

Brett Lawrie (’09): 70 games, .247/.301/.421, 12HR, 38RBI

Jake Odorizzi (’10): 31 games, 31 starts, 11-13, 4.13ERA, 168.0IP, 59BB, 174K

Oh, an Odorizzi pitching highlight?

Michael Pineda (’08): 13 games, 13 starts, 5-5, 1.89ERA, 76.1IP, 7BB, 59K

Rattler Alumni Update: End of Winter Leagues

I really just wanted to type the phrase “End of Winter” in the title because it’s -8 this morning.


The Perth Heat swept the Canberra Cavalry 2 games to none in the Australian Baseball League’s Championship Series with a 14th inning walkoff win in game one and a 2-1 win in game two.

No Timber Rattlers were involved, but former Brewers reliever Graeme Lloyd is the pitching coach for the Heat.

The Caribbean Series wrapped up with Mexico defeating Puerto Rico 7-1 in the Championship Game.  Three ex-Rattlers were on the team from Puerto Rico that made it through the Round Robin part of the tournament with a 2-2 record and beat Venezuela 2-0 in the Semifinal Game before losing to Mexico in the Final.

Joel Pineiro ('98) made his Winter League debut for the season with Ponce in Puerto Rico.

Joel Pineiro (’98) lost to Cuba in the round robin without allowing an earned run.

Puerto Rico (3-3):
Jeff Dominguez: 6 games; .143/.294/.214; 0HR, 0RBI
Martin Maldonado: 6 games; .174/.174/.217; 0HR, 2RBI
Joel Pineiro: 2 games, 2 games started; 0-1, 0.00ERA; 11.2IP, BB, 4K, 0.94WHIP

Timber Rattlers Alumni Report – Winter League games through 1/5/14

Here we are with the first post of 2014.  What does the field look like on my first day of work in the New Year?

This is what below zero looks like!

This is what below zero looks like!

Ugh.  I will do you a favor and not take a photo of any temperature gauges to post here.  Let me just say that it is really, really cold.

Instead, a look at the Rattler alumni playing in the winter leagues…where it is much, much warmer.

I thought so.

Rattlers Alumni Report – Through games of….

There appeared to be some issues in the Winter Leagues over the weekend with some stats not being reported…All of the Winter Leagues.  It appears these statistics are through games of either Friday or Saturday and several teams have only two or three games in the stats.

There are also some issues here in Northeast Wisconsin.  It’s cold and there’s snow on the ground and I’m sick of it already.
