Mustelier makes a brief return in the AzFL


AzFL Phoenix Desert Dogs (8-7 loss to Salt River) Saturday’s game
Rob Segedin, LF: 3 for 4, 1 R, 1 RBI – up to .324/.425/.441, but it’s an extreme offensive environment
Chase Whitley, RHP: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 HBP, 2-0 GB/FB, 1 E (pickoff) – 14 of 23 pitches were strikes (60.9%)
Preston Claiborne, RHP: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 1 WP, 3-0 GB/FB – half of his 24 pitches were strikes … three walks and two strikeouts in four innings

AzFL Phoenix Desert Dogs (7-4 win over Scottsdale) Monday’s game … remember, they don’t play on Sundays
Ronnie Mustelier, 3B: 0 for 3, 2 K – first appearance since leaving a game with an apparent injury twelve days ago … he played five innings before being lifted, possibly by design
Corban Joseph, 2B: 1 for 3, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 E (missed catch) - that’s his second homer in eight games out here after hitting just five in 131 games with Double-A Trenton

    In re: Segedin, I ain’t gonna be excited by an ISO of .106 in the desert. I mean, if a pitching prospect allows that ISO out there, you get excited.

    Didn’t Noesi start today in the Dominican? Will you have his update tomorrow?

  3. EvilleHomeofDonnieBaseball says:

    Why is it such a extreme offensive environment? Short fences? Hitters more advanced than pitchers?

    • mbonzo says:

      Plenty of young pitchers, throwing in short spurts, away from their usual regimen. Add that the air is hot and dry, you’ve got some long balls in order.

      Stadium dimensions are pretty standard.

    Just wondering if anyone knows the contract situations of a few players? R.Pena,Cervelli,Golson,Russo,Maxwell,Kontos,Wordekemper,Whelan,E.Nunez,Colin Curtis. Thanks!

    Are you going to have the other Winter Ball updates? All I know is Chato Vazquez just crushes everywhere! His first week was pretty productive! .368/.455/ 1.053/ 1.507 with a double and 4HR in 5 games!! AND, he walked 3 times!!!
