    August 2012 Minor League Thread

    I think Cote has been moved to the 60 Day DL. Hoping for it to be a paper move as they work some pitchers from this year's draft into the remaining four weeks of GCL action.

    the crazy thing is that he's outperforming robertson's MiL numbers - they have almost identical walk rates, but his K rate is superior, and he's doing it at a younger age than robertson was... insane

    i really hope they give him a spring invite and he sticks, making some bullpen pieces expendable in a deal

    Craig Kimbrel: 2012 K/9: 15.08 -- mL K/9: 14.4
    Kenley Jansen: 13.6 -- 15.3
    DRob: 13.5 -- 12.6

    Far too lazy to go ahead and compare guys like Clippard, Marmol, McGee, etc. Also, both Kimbrel and Jansen walked over 5/9; Montgomery's at 14.6 and 3.4 respectively. Always seems like these type of prospects are the easiest to project.

    Outfielders like Kruml, Cust and Curtis released while Mesa is getting promoted to SWB.

    I doubt that happens next spring training as the Yankees aren't the type to put that much faith in a rookie pitcher that hasn't been above AA.

    Same here. If they give him a fair shot in ST 2013, he can stick, and make guys like Eppley (righty 'roogy') expendable.

    Good for Mesa. Maybe he will produce in AAA and get a shot in RF next year. Defensively, he is ready, and he has the arm for it. Offensively, his power is up this year over last year, his K rate is significantly down. Even his average is up.

    Maybe he will be a late bloomer. He does have all the natural 'tools".

    Anyone heard any update on Gumbs? Is he done for the season?

    Heathcott

    .273/.360/.488 in high A

    It seems that people have forgotten him. He's still only 21 and his ceiling is comparable to Mason Williams.

    I agree, but he could go to ST, impress, and put himself in a position to be called up in early summer

    I know what you mean, although it's probably because he's spent so much time on the DL. I'm pulling hard for Heathcott. I liked the pick at the time and still think he has a lot of potential.

    If we're talking about ceiling in isolation, I think most of the information out there points towards Slade having a clearly higher ceiling than Mason.

    Again though, this is ignoring everything other than the actual ceiling - no injury history, no results, etc.

    If Slade makes it, it would take some of the sting out of just missing out on Trout

    The Angels had back to back first round picks so who's to say if they didn't have ours that they wouldn't have chose Trout with their first pick which was their first round pick ahead of the Yankees. They took two outfielders with those two picks so it's conceivable that Trout might have been the pick if they only had one pick to use that first round.

    Mason Williams is having surgery on his non-throwing shoulder to address the problem he's been battling all season long with it popping out after landing on it. I think that has happen 3 times this year and I thought he might have done it last year at SI too. Anyhow, he's done for the year.

    There was a "what-if" article (ESPN?) where an Angels' official said they would have taken Trout if they only had the one.
