    Seth Stohs got a reaction from roger in Twins Daily 2022 Short-Season Hitter of the Year: Jose Rodriguez   
    Mercedes was my #1 (with Rodriguez #2) because of the speed numbers to go with the power. 
    I can't tell you a lot about the defense of those others.

    I think it's incredibly impressive. He's very young, but there are several 18-20 year olds in this league still, so yeah... It'll be good to hopefully see him in the FCL next season. The K and BB numbers are good. But it's the power numbers that are amazing.

    I have corrected this... The BRef links are done with an automated process that typically amazes me with how it's able to distinguish between players with the same names... but they got this one wrong. Thanks for pointing this out!!

    Imagine if they had done nothing! 
    Paddock is different than Mahle, as they paid very little for him because of the risk. People seem to forget that

    I was really worried about that when the Twins hired Wes Johnson. As much time as they spend working on mechanics and studying the video of arm angles and release points (and all that has helped keep Bailey Ober's arm healthy, and probably others)... I also worry about the focus on velocity. It's a tough thing because its' clearly really important in the game, but it isn't natural for an arm. There have been arm injuries, but (without looking) I don't think there have been more than before. 
    But yes, I do think that the whole medical staff and training philosophy needs to be analyzed... and I have no doubt in my mind that has been an ongoing study as well. How many of the injuries were freaky, can't do much about it kind of things (broken bones, hit by pitches, etc) and how many are soft tissue, muscle types of things.

    Of note, the fourth affiliate, the one that didn't make the playoffs, is the Saints... and there are no Triple-A playoffs. Also, there is such a turnover on that roster that it would be impossible to find any consistency to compete. Even just this past weekend, Rodriguez was supposed to start on Saturday, he got called up Saturday morning. Henriquez was supposed to start Sunday. He got called up Sunday morning. "Excuses?" Sure... also just the reality of a feeder affiliate. 
    Varland and Festa... Headrick. Nowlin... Traded Povich and Hajjar (with Steer and CES) to get Lopez and Mahle. They're developing pitching prospects. Those prospects now just need to make that final step. Guys like Ryan, Ober, Winder, Varland are a pretty solid starting point.

    Depressing. 
    Martin- As long as he keeps the OBP up I don't care about the power. How many times have the Twins had runners on first and third with no outs and then walk away with nothing because guys struck out while swinging for the fences. The bigger issue with Martin is where does he fit on defense.
    Canterino- I don't have his medical records and I'm not a doctor. But yeah, one has to wonder if this situation could have been handled differently. 
    Balazovic-In 2000 at AA Kyle Lohse went 3-18 with a 6.04 ERA. He went on to have pretty respectable career. Sometimes you have to struggle to find and toughen yourself.
