The GCL was rained out this afternoon. The Threshers were rained out tonight. So, I went looking through the org rosters and happened upon Julsan Kamara. He’s the young kid we signed out of Germany who started in the DSL after graduating high school. Kamara went 2-3 today and pulled his average up to .204 for the season. No big deal until you realize started the season 0-21. He followed that up with an 11-33 in his last 10 games.
Kamara is 18-years old (he turns 19 in December). He’s 6’3 and weighs 205 lbs. His slash is .204/.386/.259/.645. He has 9 walks and 21 strike outs in 54 at bats, only 2 XBH among his 11 total hits. He also has 10 RBIs, all in the last 10 games.
Just thought I’d share this info on one of our international signings.
A light night on the schedule, as GCL was rained out and all the other stateside leagues were on scheduled off-days or All-Star Breaks. What a comeback to the SAL for Yoel Mecias – three walks, two hits and seven strikeouts in five scoreless innings, plus he got five outs on the ground. Dylan Cozens hit two home runs, (12, 13) to make a pretty good night of it himself – he was 4-5. And I guess I’ll recognize that Mitch Walding had three doubles, giving him 10 in this last 10 games. The man’s got it going on right now. Maybe time to push him to CLR and let Zach green get back to playing third every day.
And speaking of Green – this one falls in the “hmm…really” category – Zach Green stole his seventh base, and so did Carlos Tocci. Tocci’s played in almost twice as many games, and been caught nine times. Green’s been caught once.
