農場投手大物Carlos Martinez因簽證問題仍然留在多明尼加,尚未前往美國。JMo還不確定什麼時候簽證可通過,而Matheny原定想讓Martinez在春訓第一周出賽的計畫也因此可能取消,端看Martinez到美國後的身體和狀況。

假日曾在季後邀請Marco Scutaro加入紅雀。紅雀提供Scutaro兩年合約,而Scutaro決定接受舊金山巨人的三年合約。


左手牛Sam Freeman調整了投球機制,並且學習了新的變化球,彈指曲球。

Shelby Miller表示他今年大多數被打的全壘打都是球數落後時投快速球被打。他的快速球製造的揮棒落空比不上在低階的時期,更常被打到界外。連續投快速球都是被打到界外。因此用球量暴增,投球局數縮短。

Tyler Lyons升上3A,補上Joe Kelly上大聯盟後留下的先發投手空缺。Mike Shildt表示Lyons的曲球有很大的進步,能製造揮棒落空,有著更穩定的控制。


至於Lyons在2A的空位,目前還未決定。今天Carlos Martinez投了兩次15球的模擬情境,在明後天確定Martinez的手沒問題後,Shildt才會讓Martinez補上Lyons的位置。Shildt表示Martinez投球輕鬆自在,感覺很好,預期很快就可以出賽。

最近Scott Gorgen投球內容不佳,教練Mike Shildt認為他給自己壓力過大,Gorgen認為自己的快速球準度還是個問題

將近一個月前,堪薩斯市皇家農作物Wil Myers從德州聯盟升到太平洋灣岸聯盟。今天Myers的打席正式不符合德州聯盟打擊排行榜資格,Oscar Taveras成為德州聯盟打擊王。

2A右手牛Jorge Rondon從傷兵名單歸隊。

Farm Report

Posted by bosspresso 於 六月 10, 2012

克利夫蘭印地安人是全大聯盟唯一一支還沒輸過紅雀任何系列賽的球隊。先前六次系列賽,全是印地安人獲勝。

假日因為開賽前背部抽筋而臨時移出先發名單。原本的打線是假日改成第四棒,小摸打第三棒。假日明天能否上場還不確定。

小摸生涯第一次先發打第三棒。他是有過兩次打第三棒的經驗,不過都不是在先發的情況之下。Matheny認為小摸適合這位置,是最棒的打者。
不過我不喜歡這調動就是,從第六棒到第三棒,位置重要性變化太大了,我怕會影響到小摸的打擊策略。不過八局下Tribe竟然IBB小摸 XD

紅雀要求來了被德州遊騎兵放入揮棄名單的左手牛John Gaub,並把他放入四十人名單,指派至3A。Matheny表示他只知道Gaub有條強壯的手臂,僅此而已。除了遊騎兵,他近年來還待過坦帕灣光芒和芝加哥小熊。生涯只在去年於小熊有上大聯盟,只投了2.2局。

Shelby Miller原本在球隊今年可能升上來的名單上,但他失去的球速以及平均每場投不滿五局的表現,為這計畫蒙上陰影。John Vuch表示過去一直強調發展Shelby的變化球,這在1A、2A只是附加價值,但是在3A這是必要的武器。Vuch表示高中投手上到大聯盟的過程中常常會遇到球速變慢的情形。Shelby假使當年選擇上大學,那他現在只是個剛符合選秀資格的大學投手。Vuch說Shelby是有不錯的變化球和變速球,但七、八成時候投出好的變化球和變速球,跟只有五成機率是有差別的。

Tyrell Jenkins除了肩膀疲勞的原因進傷兵名單以外,他順便會在傷兵名單休息,降低今年的工作量。目前Jenkins已經投了43.2局,距離他去年的總局數只差了13局。這策略不是紅雀第一次使用。Shelby Miller的第一個完整球季,跟Jenkins一樣是在QC時,就休息過一陣子。Carlos Martinez在五月份也進入傷兵名單休息,他預計會在週二面對打者投球。假使情況良好,Martinez有可能在那之後一周內在2A初登板。

紅雀今年選秀時,每一個順位選完都要再次規劃,以填滿低階農場的位置。在選秀接近尾聲時,John Vuch會提醒球探還有那些洞要補。第一波簽約的球員將首先至佛羅里達邱比特的春訓基地報到,和其他延長春訓的農作物一起分配到Johnson City Cardinals和GCL Cardinals兩支新人聯盟的球隊。至於會在短期1A的Batavia Muckdogs選秀球員,會直接前往New York-Penn League的基地。去年選的兩位優質新秀C.J. McElroy和Lance Jeffries指派至Johnson City,今年三明治選的高中捕手Steve Bean也會加入他們,他在那會有大量上場時間。對於哇咖,目前考慮範圍是短期1A到高階1A的範圍。

Draft ’12: Cardinals’ Day First Picks

Posted by bosspresso 於 六月 5, 2012

附上BA球探報告,括弧內為BA排名。

19.

(8) Michael Wacha, rhp, Texas A&M

After the consensus top three college pitchers (Stanford’s Mark Appel, Louisiana State’s Kevin Gausman, San Francisco’s Kyle Zimmer) go off the board, Wacha could be the next one selected. He owns the best changeup in the draft, a pitch that can be devastating when he sets it up with a 90-93 mph fastball that peaks at 96. His command also is as good as any pitcher in this crop, as is his competitiveness. He also has an athletic 6-foot-6, 200-pound frame and delivers his pitches on a tough angle to the plate. The only thing keeping him from being considered on the top tier of college arms is the lack of a plus breaking ball. Wacha made progress with a slider last summer under the tutelage of Team USA pitching coach Rob Walton, and he also throws a curveball. Wacha generally sticks with whichever breaking pitch is working best on a given day. Both pitches can get loose at times and project as no better than average at the big league level. Despite that one shortcoming, he still could find his way into the first 10 picks. He may not have the ceiling of Appel, Gausman or Zimmer, but Wacha has a higher floor.

高中版Zack Cox。很多方面看起來很好,控球好,變速球好,耐操。但他沒有變化球。這個問題就夠讓人頭大了,使他只會是個輪值後段先發。

23.

(51) James Ramsey, of, Florida State

Scouts have called Ramsey the Tim Tebow of Florida State baseball, referring to his leadership, strong Christian faith and big-play ability, and Seminoles coaches don’t shrink from the comparison. The first player under 33-year head coach Mike Martin to wear a “C" on his uniform as team captain, Ramsey spurned the Twins as a 22nd-round pick last summer, turning down more than $500,000 from a club that wanted to shift him to second base. He has moved from right to center field as a senior and got off to a blistering start, and he was batting .401/.536/.731 to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference in all three categories. Scouts see Ramsey as much the same player he was last year, with average to above-average tools but no true plus tool. He’s an above-average runner who might be able to stick in center field, though some scouts question his instincts and doubt he could stick there in a larger home park. He has an average, accurate arm sufficient for right field. Ramsey has average power but may not have corner power. He’s a safe bet to be a big leaguer, with scouts split on just how much impact he’ll have. He has yet to play the infield, but another club might want to follow the Twins’ lead and try him at second in a Jason Kipnis redux.

車神二代。
