Minor League Update

AFL Recap for Games of October 24

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Day: Henry Urrutia, RF, Orioles (Surprise Saguaros): 3-6, 2 R, 2B, HR. We still don’t know how Urrutia’s game will translate against major-league pitching, but there’s not much else he can do to prove he can hit minor-league competition.

Pitcher of the Day: Jeurys Familia, RHP, Mets (Scottsdale Scorpions): 2 IP, H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K. Familia is in the desert to make up for time he lost this season after elbow surgery in June and because if that, he’s likely to have some inconsistencies. When he’s on, however, he has a great arm and on Thursday showed why he could be in the Mets plans for next season. The lost time won’t help with his need to develop his secondary pitches, but with a plus fastball and a future in the bullpen, he needs only an average second pitch to have a future as, at the very least, a middle reliever.

Seeing it Well

  • Jorge Soler, RF, Cubs (Mesa Solar Sox): 3-4, R, K. Soler went 1-for-something in each of his first five games, but broke out on Thursday and now has a nine-game hitting streak in the AFL. The Cubs are still waiting for the power to come out of a frame that looks like it should have a ton of it, but for now, it continues to come in the form of doubles.
