There was mention when the Twins acquired Jeremias Pineda that he will be pushed next year. I wonder if there is a chance he, or others, will head to E-town or Beloit.

:Not sure what happened to Dereck Rodriguez. He was sitting well above .300 for most of the season until a couple weeks ago. In his last 35 AB's, he picked up just 4 hits and struck out 17 times. Finishing the season with a .263 BA and 3 HR's.
:18 year old Felix Jorge(0-3, 2.34) from the DR did not have a great final start but had an overall good season. He struck out 37 and walked 12 over 34.2 innings.
:Randy Rosario(2-1, 1.64) is another dominican 18 year old who had a good year. His walk rate was a little high. He struck out 42 and walked 19 over 38.1 innings. He gave up just 19 hits.
:Taiwanese pitcher Kuo Hua Lo(2-0, 1.13) pitched the most innings(39.2) and had the best WHIP(0.78) on the team. 33 strike outs, just 7 walks and 24 hits allowed. Pretty good for his 1st year of pro ball in America.
:Last years 15th round pick out of Puerto Rico, Josue Montanez(2-0, 0.36) had the best ERA. He also had a good WHIP of 0.84. In 25 innings he struck out 30 and walked 8. He is 20 so a bit old for the GCL but pretty good numbers.
Local boy Austin Malinowski(3-2, 2.27) seems to have good numbers at 1st glance, but he gave up more hits(35) than innings pitched(31.2). That is not good especially in the GCL. This led to a high WHIP of 1.45.
Not much to speak of offensively on this team other than Aderlin Mejia. He hit .324 with a .788 OPS. At 20 he is a little old for the GCL. The most impressive stat for him is just 13 strike outs in 170 AB's. Thats almost unheard of.

Might even see a player or two to Fort Myers, or at least the Twins did that in the past after the GCL season, they promoted a couple players to Fort Myers.
