Minor League Update

AFL Recap for Games of October 31

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Day: Jacob Wilson, 2B, Cardinals (Salt River Rafters): 2-4, R, HR. As a senior sign out of college, Wilson has had to battle to overcome the stigma that comes with that label. Continuing to hit against better competition will help him to do just that. He has good pop for a second baseman, hitting 15 home runs in 97 games in the Midwest League this season. He also has a decent eye at the plate. That combination will help him as he faces better pitching, but it’s probably not enough to make him a major-league regular.

Pitcher of the Day: Vidal Nuno, LHP, Yankees (Scottsdale Scorpions): 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K. Nuno worked as both a starter and a reliever in his brief stint in the majors this season, but this was by far his best AFL start. His role in the majors still hasn’t been determined, but it’s good to see him have success a second time through the lineup, even if it is against minor-league competition.

Seeing it Well
