The latest from the Low-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, the Fresno Grizzlies
The always-exciting Grizzlies weren’t as flashy as they’ve been this season. Part of that has to do with the fact that the team had six games with the Modesto Nuts cancelled due to COVID-19 testing and pre-cautions.
Drew Romo: 18 PAs, .571/.556/.643, 204 wRC+, 1 2B, 2 BB, 0 K, 5 SB 🔥🔥🔥
Zac Veen: 27 PAs, .261/.370/.304, 92 wRC+, 1 2B, 4 BB, 7 K, 5 SB
Bladimir Restituyo: 24 PAs, .318/.348/.455, 110 wRC+, 1 HR, 1 BB, 4 K, 3 SB
Mateo Gil: 27 PAs, .292/.370/.500, 127 wRC+, 2 2B, 1 HR, 2 BB, 7 K
Julio Carreras: 26 PAs, .238/.385/.286, 96 wRC+, 1 2B, 4 BB, 3 K, 4 SB
Robby Martin: 30 PAs, .250/.367/.333, 95 wRC+, 2 2B, 4 BB, 7 K
Warming Bernabel: 23 PAs, .227/.261/.273, 43 wRC+, 1 2B, 1 BB, 3 K
Drew Romo couldn’t be stopped. His bat just kept finding the ball and those balls kept finding grass. His development and proclivity to adjust this season has been remarkable.
Zac Veen finally cooled down a tad after having one of the best teenage minor league seasons in years and certainly in the Rockies organization. His still high-OBP as of late stands to show how advanced of a hitter he already is.
The speedy Bladimir Restituyo along with the handsy Mateo Gil have both carried their weight so far this month with each going yard once and getting on-base with frequency.
Julio Carreras and Robby Martin both drew four walks each but didn’t find their power strokes.
The recently 19-year-old Warming Bernabel hasn’t had an ideal start to his full-season affiliate debut but the tools are there to warrant patience. Keep an eye on him as he likely repeats the level next year.
Tony Locey: 5.2 IP, 1.59 ERA, 4.07 FIP, 4 BB, 8 K
Anderson Amarista: 5.0 IP, 3.60 ERA, 2.04 FIP, 1 BB, 7 K
Gavin Hollowell: 2.0 IP, 0.00 ERA, 4.24 FIP, 2 BB, 3 K
Case Williams: 4.1 IP, 10.38 ERA, 6.09 FIP, 2 BB, 2 K
Tony Locey has continued to thrive since being converted to the Fresno rotation. His control has been sporadic at times but he’s been hard to catch up to when he’s in the zone. Anderson Amarista has been leading quite the resurgence on his season with four of his last five starts being quite good.
