2021 Instructs, 9/30/2021

2021 Instructs continued through today.  I went to the Complex on Wednesday and Thursday and watched for a few hours.

It looks like the guys here for Instructs are doing work indoors and out.  When they come outside, the position players are working in small groups with multiple coaches/instructors.  Pitchers groups are a little bigger, but they tend to separate into different size groups depending on what they are doing.  They do tend to gravitate back into a larger group for PFPs with many coaches/instructors.

The rehab group is becoming more apparent.  They come out en masse later than the others and run through stretching and agility drills.  Their workout ends with those who have reached the throwing portion of their rehab doing so if scheduled to throw that day.

I have put eyeballs on some more players and can correct some of my earlier observations.  I had reported a bullpen by Baker, Bell, and maybe Segovia on Tuesday.  I have learned that it was Abel, Baker, and Armenta,  The last two days, I’ve seen Rumfield, Luis Garcia, Simmons, Cristian Hernandez, Carlo Reyes, Ash, De Freitas, Wingrove, Nicolas Torres, Minyety, Mejia, Azuaje, Schulze, Andrew Brown, Phelan, Lehman, Martinez, Cesar, Barber, Aldeghari, Pina, Aparicio, and Valadez-Acuna.

That brings participants up to 79 players.  Here is an updated list in alphabetical order.  This does not include the 6-7 DSL players who will arrive when their season ends this weekend.  Still seems to be short catchers with only 3-4 listed and one not healthy (Nava).

  1. So how does the fall instructs invites work? Are player invitations limited to certain levels of minor league? For example would invitations be extended to triple A players?

    1. Normally you will not see a 23/24/25-year old player from Triple A…unless they have missed a sizable portion of their Triple A season and are rehabbing back from an injury.
      From the list above..LHP Nick Fant …turning 25 in a few months…jumps out….he has not been healthy for the last 3 years. He needs the work or the rehabbing ……and sadly, this may be his last hurrah
