Graterol adjusted to high A and double a extremely well . if the twins are in contention(which I fully expect)come September I wouldn't be surprised to see graterol in the big league pen. Pensacola's roster has serious potential to impact the pennant race between him and AK

 

I hope they don't wait until September, if he's even close to this good for next two months.

It's IL now, btw, not DL.....

Romero would have been a good option the last two days in the Minneapolis.

It's true, he would have, for sure.

 

But I'm wondering if, after his spring struggles, they're keeping him around til he shows he can do the job consistently, and when they bring him up, he'd be up to stay, instead of being another cog in the Rochester shuffle.

Graterol has that King Felix vibe to his pitching. Love it.

Google Maps tells me they were born 95 miles apart! (Also 12 years apart :) )

 

Too bad Graterol's not on the King Felix timeline...

This is the obsessive attention to detail that I can only aspire to. Kudos.

I'm not so sure. Graterol's high for innings is 102. Barring injury, he'll probably be in the 140 range by September and they'll probably just shut him down.

 

Also, while Graterol adjusted well to high A relative to his age, I don't think his performance there stood out relative to the league.

 

Graterol: 8.8 H/9, 0.0 HR/9, 2.8 BB/9, 8.3 K/9

League: 8.6 H/9, 0.6 HR/9, 3.2 BB/9, 8.2 K/9

 

He's doing very well at AA right now, but also worth noting his AA league is off to a poor start hitting too: .646 league OPS, as compared to .701 last year. And Graterol's two standout stats so far this year are limiting hits and HR.
