Phelps rights the ship in Arizona

Open Thread: Rained Out
Chavez would "deeply consider" a return to the Yankees in 2012

Apparently Colin Curtis is going to play winter ball in Venezuela this year, or at least that’s what this tweet seems to imply. He’s not on any of the VWL rosters, but that doesn’t mean anything. We’ll just have to wait and see. Curtis missed the season after needing surgery for a severe shoulder injury he suffered in Spring Training.

AzFL Phoenix (4-3 loss to Salt River)
Corban Joseph, 2B: 0 for 4
Rob Segedin, LF: 1 for 3, 2 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB – six walks and four strikeouts in his last eight games
David Phelps, RHP: 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 1-4 GB/FB – 39 of 54 pitches were strikes (72.2%) … easily his best start out here
Dan Burawa, RHP: 1 IP, zeroes, 2-0 GB/FB – eight of 13 pitches were strikes (61.5%)
Preston Claiborne, RHP: 1 IP, zeroes, 3 K – nine of his 16 pitches were strikes (56.3%)

AzFL Phoenix (7-6 win over Peoria)
Ronnie Mustelier, DH: 2 for 5, 1 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 K – four straight two-hit games and five multi-hit games in his seven contests
Rob Segedin, LF: 1 for 5, 1 K
Chase Whitley, RHP: 1 IP, zeroes, 1 K, 1-1 GB/FB – eight of ten pitches were strikes

    Isn’t Phil Hughes going to Venezuela too?!/PhilHughes65/status/129022609076666368

      I think that’s him replying to Colin Curtis. Hughes is too high to go to Venezuela.

        So it was the chronic after all.

    Noesi=Warren>Phelps? Would any of them have a Nova type impact in the rotation next year or would they all have ERA’s over 5?

    • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

      Noesi>Warren=Phelps. At least right now.

    I read this as “Phelps’s rights shipped to Arizona.” I’m still have wondering what we got back, which means I’ve definitely been awake for too long.

      *half – seriously, way too long…

      • Brian S.

        We got back Ian Kennedy. /sigh

  • Benk

    so infield pop fly outs are not included in the GB/FO ratio?


    Winter Report: This just in!!…Jorge ‘Chato’ Vazquez – In the Mexican Pacific Lg Chushing the ball. Three game winning HR’s already with the latest a grand slam BOMB the other day. In 13 games Chato has a .367avg, 6hr, 18rbi, .436obp, .755slg%, and 1.191ops. And the MexPac is very good this year. about 80% of the players have ML exp, and most of the rest is AAA. This is what he would have been doing in AAA if he wasnt upset from not being called up for a shot. Look how he started the year in Scranton. Just mashing, and then a couple callups that should have been him, and….slump. He is even much better than he looked in Scranton, and he still broke the franchize home run record. He will hit .280/30/100….. Now he is home, and appreciated. He is a superstar in Mexico! If he gets a shot in the bigs he could be an All-Star. He needs to get traded this winter, but I would rather him DH, and mix in on the corners, and Montero catch. That would be some lineup!!
