Minor League Update

AFL Recap for Games of October 16

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Day: Stephen Piscotty, RF, Cardinals (Salt River Rafters): 2-4, 2 R, 2B, 3B, BB. Piscotty continues to be red-hot this fall and put together another strong day. He now has three straight multi-hit games.

Pitcher of the Day: Matt Heidenreich, RHP, Astros (Peoria Javelinas): 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 4 K. It’s a slow day in the AFL when the pitcher of the day walked three batters, but Heidenreich did limit the damage by missing some bats and limiting the hits. It was actually an abnormal start for Heidenreich, who doesn’t usually rack up the strikeout numbers but typically has very good control.

Seeing it Well

  • Japhet Amador, 1B, Astros, (Peoria Javelinas): 2-4, 2B, 2 K. Amador appears on this list for the second straight day, one day after hitting his first AFL homer. Amador reached base twice in this one, but was lifted for a pinch runner late, something he should become accustomed to, if he’s not already.
  • Max Kepler, 1B, Twins (Glendale Desert Dogs): 2-3, 2 R, 2B. The big German is still quite young (20-years-old) and is even younger for the AFL. He is still dealing with inconsistencies in his game at the plate, but his 6-foot-4 frame allows scouts to dream on him developing more power.
