AFL Update: October 13, 2011

Scottsdale was doubled up 10-5 for its second straight loss.

Sammy Solis was knocked around for four runs on six hits and a walk over his four innings of work, giving up a pair of runs in the first and third innings. He threw 63 pitches, 42 for strikes while getting six outs on the ground and three flyouts.

Derek Norris was the designated hitter and went 0-for-2 with a run scored. He walked twice and struck out once.

As mentioned earlier this week, winter leagues in Mexico, Venezuela, and the Dominican are starting up this week. The editorial plan is to feature the AFL on a daily basis, but check in on the other Nats on a weekly basis. As expected, just one Nat farmhand is playing in the Mexican League (Pat McCoy) while roughly a dozen or so are in the Venezuelan League.

  1. Saw Solis pitch last night. It was an off night for him but 5 of the 6 hits were ground balls that found holes. One thing that is good to see is that the sink on his pitches induces a lot of ground balls, with 6 outs coming on ground balls (versus 3 fly balls). His GO/AO ratio has been very good all year at 1.58. He seems to be a ground ball machine and I think it will serve him well in his career. As his breaking pitch improves, he will become a lot more effective.

  2. In the Venezuala League the following are playing for Aguilas de Zulia:
    Sandy Leon
    Carlos Maldonado
    Seth Bynum
    Adrian Sanchez
    Seth Bynum had a good night last night 3/5 2b, hr and 6 rbis
