Laird draws some walks in Surprise losses


The Yanks pulled Austin Romine from the Arizona Fall League after he sustained a minor injury. They opted not to send someone to replace him, so the Rangers sent Taylor Teagarden.

AzFL Surprise (2-1 loss to Peoria Javelinas on Monday) three runs total in an AzFL game? wtf?
Colin Curtis: 3 for 5, 1 K – OPS’ing over 1.200
Brandon Laird: 1 for 2, 1 BB, 1 HBP
Grant Duff: 1 IP, zeroes, 1 K, 1-1 GB/FB – 6 of 11 pitches were strikes (54.5%)

AzFL Surprise (7-6 loss to Phoenix on Tuesday)
Brandon Laird: 0 for 3, 2 BB, 1 K

    Is the AzFL pitch f/x data available anywhere easily? I checked Brooks Baseball, but that tool isn’t working.

  2. Is it normal to pull players like that?

  3. PaulF says:

    When I first read these I always forget the name of the team and think that the loss or the win was surprising.

  4. Accent Shallow says:

    Not replacing Romine? Awful. DoTF just got less interesting.

    I’m really looking forward to him at AA next year.

  5. Accent Shallow says:

    Also, Mike, how much fun are you having coming up with “Surprise”-related puns?

  6. Christos says:

    I was gonna meet Austin on the 11-13 of next month too. Damn.
