  1. Is this the first time Freddy made the hot hitter list.

    Btw I was driving last night and listened to the Mets lose on a balk after blowing a two run lead in the ninth .Gotta listen to wfan today for laughs

      1. Yes. His foot was reported injured. Not much detail, as I recall, but did not sound super-serious. Much better news that the hammy again.

  2. Just a thought that I am sure has been brought up before but shouldnt HOT or NOT be an every two weeks thing….seems like a one week sample is not nearly enough to deem someone hot or cold

  3. I don’t know the appropriate place to put this:

    Sebastian Valle – Had a very positive writeup recently by Jason Parks at BProspectus. Mentions that he has very good contact skills and power(no surprise) but that he doesn’t take enough walks(also not a surprise). On the podcast they dig deeper though. Jason doesn’t seem that concerned about the walks saying that he might just be seeing the ball so well that he’s not walking cause he’s too busy hitting. They also talked about his defense being adequete with some room for improvement. They didn’t think he’d be a great defensive catcher but good enough to stay on the position basically.

    1. Interesting scouting report…….’.seeing the ball so well that he’s not walking cause he’s too busy hitting’.
      Could be swinging early in the count or just a bad-ball hitter. His ratio is an anamoly.

  4. Saw Colvin’s most recent outing at Dunedin. The scoreboard gun had his fast ball sitting at 92-93 and topping out at 95. He broke off some nice knee buckling breaking pitches . Just needs to work on his command and he will be fine. The next night Julio Rodriquez had a rough outing. If he misses his spots he gets hit hard. His fastball sat at 87-88. He had a nice sequence against rehabbing Blue Jays short stop John McDonald setting him up on a called strike with a 68 mph slow curve and getting him to ground out to second on an 88 mph fastball.

  5. An interesting (and hot) prospect is Herlis Rodriguez from the VSL. His triple slash over the last 8 games (and he’s only played 8 games) is .394/.444/.788 with an OPS of 1.232. He has 2 HRs and 8 RBIs. He turned 17 last week. I’m sure there will be the discussion about his “real” age but keep an eye on him.
