    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    Katie Sharp's article about Andujar's rookie season.

    *Entering Tuesday

    Not only does he hit the same whether its a scoring or non-scoring situation, but also he’s at his best in the biggest spots. He’s hitting an absurd .311/.357/.573 in 115 high-leverage plate appearances this season. The average major-leaguer has a .249/.323/.402 line in those same high-pressure situations. (Also noteworthy is the equally ridiculous high-leverage batting line by Torres: .356/.406/.622.)

    A final distinctive trait for Andújar is the fact that he’s unfazed by the count within an at-bat, and has been incredibly productive when falling behind. Here are his stats in at-bats that end in an unfavorable count (0-1, 0-2, 1-2) compared to the league average.

    BA

    OBP

    SLG

    wOBA

    Andújar

    0.272

    0.274

    0.547

    0.332

    League Avg

    0.198

    0.207

    0.304

    0.220

    *Entering Tuesday

    Not shown are the 13 homers and 36 RBIs, both of which lead the majors. Yes, he falls behind in the count (32 percent of pitches seen) slightly more often than the league average (29 percent), but his rate stats are still among best too. Among the nearly 300 players with at least 100 plate appearances ending in unfavorable hitters counts, he ranks third in slugging percentage, fifth in OPS and fifth in wOBA.

    I'm fine with Torres winning it. My problem with Ohtani is strictly being a DH in basically a platoon situation with only ten pitching appearances in which eight of them were in April and May.

    Othani is not being used as a platoon at all.

    Othani
    246 PA against RHP
    101 PA against LHP
    RHP/LHP ratio 2.42

    Andujar
    420 PA against RHP
    166 PA against LHP
    RHP/LHP ratio 2.53

    I'm happy if Andujar wins it. I just think Othani case is stronger and would not say Andujar gets robbed if Othani wins it.

    Btw are you fine if Joey Wendle wins it? An above average hitter (not as good as Andujar) who is also a good defensive middle infielder and could play the coner OF and 3B if needed.

    A nice player, but not an impact bat as I've seen Andujar have too many big at-bats.

    I think Ohtani is pretty much a lock.

    I dont see that happening. His injury and slump took care of that. Andujar is the best rookie on the team this season. FYI, Torres has almost as many errors at 2nd as Andujar has at 3rd. Both of them are young though, and I expect them to get better defensively as they age.

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    Not to mention, all the talk about Andujar being a free swinger, and he could be under 100 Ks on the season, half as many as Stanton and Judge (pace). Andujar is the real deal at the dish.

    So should Andjuar's "fielding".
    But don't forget Ohtani also has 50 pretty darn solid innings as a starter.

    How many Angel games do you watch? I mean I don't watch too many myself so I don't know if Ohtani has a lot of "big ABs" or not.


    I do know on rate adjusted stats Ohtani is well ahead of Andujar. Whether it is raw OPS, OPS+ or RC.


    That's not to say Andjuar didn't have a great season and a bright future it's just trying to take the Yankee bias out of the equation.

    I was talking about Wendle in that post. As to Ohtani, I do know that his at-bats in critical situations are below Andujar's based on Katie Sharp's article.

    GM Brian Cashman is trying something different by having two scouts “advance” his own team. The idea is to pick up flaws other teams may see.

    That's awesome.

    True. But in most cases, they were not major dollar FA signings. Especially from the A's.

    I'm more surprised that 2 teams made the playoffs carrying rule 5 draft picks all year.

    Can you identify these players? I looked at the 2017 Rule 5 draft and the player selected by the Astros (Anthony Gose) and Braves (Anyelo Gomes) were returned to the Rangers and Yankees respectively.

    It would appear, then, that these players obtained through the Rule 5 draft in a prior season. For example, if the Padres were in the playoffs and Torrens was on their roster, he was obtained through the Rule 5 draft, although in a prior season.

    Also, it is possible to obtain a player in the Rule 5 draft minor league portion and have that player ultimately make the ML roster - again, doesn't have to be on the ML roster all season, but the method of attaining the player was the mechanism of the Rule 5 draft.

    EDIT:

    Atlanta's player appears to be Daniel Winkler, who was selected from Colorado in the 2014 Rule 5 draft

    Houston's player appears to be Marwin Gonzalez, who was selected by Boston from the Cubs in the 2011 Rule 5 draft, then traded by BOS to HOU.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    Foley actually did OK. 5 Ks in 2.1 innings. And a below 4.00 ERA in that league is pretty good.

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    Foley is seven months older than Luis Severino, for a bit of context (on both of them, I guess).
