Arizona Fall League & Dominican Winter League Recaps: 10/30


Arizona Fall League

It was only Braves batters that got to play yesterday in AFL action.  Here are the lines:

  • Tommy La Stella – 0-3, BB
  • Robby Hefflinger – 0-4, 2 K
  • Kyle Kubitza – 0-4, 2 K

Tommy La Stella finally walked again, after a 4 game walkless streak.  But unfortunately for Tommy, his hitting streak finally came to an end. La Stella had at least 1 hit in all 11 games he had played in so far, but that streak ended last night with an 0-3 game. La Stella still has an outstanding slash line on the season of .325/.481/.575/1.056.  There was a really good article on Baseball America yesterday giving a bit of a scouting report on Tommy La Stella and how well he has been hitting out in Arizona.  There is also a nice little video with it of LaStella hitting in the cage and in some games.  Check it out here.

Robby Hefflinger and Kyle Kubitza both put up 0-4 games and struck out twice each.  Hefflinger is now in a 0-15 streak with 8 strikeouts.  Ouch.

The Scorpions are of course back in action today at 12:35 MST.  Check back tomorrow for the updates.

Dominican Winter League

Few different guys saw action yesterday in the DWL.  Here are their lines:

  • Edward Salcedo – 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 K, fielding error
  • Juan Cedeno – walked the only batter he faced
  • Wirfin Obispo – 1 IP, HR, 1 ER, 2 K

Edward Salcedo collected a couple of hits yesterday, but also made a fielding error.  Salcedo has always been known as a hitter and a weak fielder, and this game showed just that in a small sample size.  Cedeno only pitched to one batter and walked him.  Wirfin Obispo pitched a full inning and allowed a solo homer, but struck out 2.

Check back with us tomorrow to find out more updates on the DWL.
