Suttle finally gets a hit


HWB Honolulu (10-4 win over Waikiki)
Ajax: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 1 K – 10 hits & 6 RBI in his last 6 games
Bradley Suttle: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K – sighs of relief all around…he’s now 1 for 25 in Hawaii
George Kontos: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 3-6 GB/FB – knocks that ERA down to 4.50

    It’s nice to see Kontos back on track. How much do you think this slump is hurting Suttle’s prospect status? Any chance he starts lower next year? Maybe Charleston instead of Tampa?

      Slumps like this are nothing, he’s had something like 32 at-bats as a pro. I’m more concerned about the fact that he’s never hit well with wood bats, whether it be as a pro or in summer leagues in college.

      No idea on the Tampa or Charleston situation, Hilligoss has to start at Tampa, doesn’t he?

    I think Hilligoss moves to second base next year. It’ll be interesting to see how things shake out

      Maybe even catcher. With that bat, Hilligoss would be a great prospect as a catcher.

        He’d really have to pick it up quickly. As a catcher he’d need all the experience he can get before he’s called up to the show (if he even got that far). The only place he’d stick with a major league club is second or catcher, and he’s not playing second for the yankees any time soon.
