hadn't had a chance to see him, was curious if his near 1.0 OPS in 200 or so minor league AB translated to AFL - can't tell from his stats since if went by those, answer might be that he is not even the next Troy Glaus.

Looks and plays much like his dad. Main differences are he's a switch hitter and patrols center field. In three AB from the left side, he slapped the ball on the ground (twice on the first pitch) and legged out a couple of hits. Batting right, he hit the first pitch to fairly deep center. Clearly, hitting .422 so far in the AFL, he's had major BIP success. That's not going to last (he hit .290 in Double A this year), but he well might double his current SB total of 12 (in 13 attempts). All of which is to say, he's hot, he's playing hard, and the many scouts gathered behind the plate probably were about as impressed as they were back in 2003, when the Rockies took him in the 30th round.

Hitting .300/.382/.466 in Double A this year may not be a fluke. He hit a hard double and a harder line drive that cleared the fence today in Phoenix. He failed to collect hits, though he hit the ball hard, in three other AB, dropping his BA at the midpoint in the AFL to .426.

Four K's in 4 AB today in Phoenix, the last on a ball that bounced in front of the plate.

Have you all seen Brett Wallace play this trip?

Pitched 5 very efficient scoreless innings yesterday in Mesa. A heavy guy (10 pounds heavier, for sure, than listed here) with a heavy pitch. Had a 2.92 ERA in 52 IP in the Florida State League this year, then 5.67 ERA in 94 IP in the Eastern League, then finished up with a solid start in the International League. All told, in 153 IP, 164 H, 16 HR, 42 BB, 106 SO. The Phillies' second-round pick in 2006.

Managed two hits and notched his fifth stolen base in Mesa today, while patrolling center field. And even so, was unimpressive. Fooled badly by breaking balls.

Put the binoculars on him today in Mesa. Managed only one hit (dropping his batting average to .463) but it was a rope to the warning track and, at least batting left, he has a classic swing. The only thing not to like about him is the not so small matter of his age.

Did he or did he not look like Luzinski on that swing and subsequent trot around the bases?

I thought they were going to have to tow him down the third base line.

A pitching genius indeed, a nimble fielder for someone his age, or any age, and not bad with the quotes. In the wee small hours of Sunday morning (I admit it, I fell asleep): "I think it exceeded every expectation or thought or dream."

The un-Longoria: no finish at all on his swing.
