Scouting report on Bubba Derby from Jason Pennini:

Seems like a fringe guy. Given the lack of regard many here have for Zach Davies (who's stuff is better), I don't see this guy with his stuff being a prospect most would embrace.


Agreed. Plus command and fringy stuff simply doesn't cut it at the MLB level.

Regardless of this report in November, his fastball is typically 88-91 as a starter but in a strict pen role he'll sit 93 consistently with some movement. His change is above average and seems to be his second best offering followed by his curve, which seems to be decent and usable as a 3rd pitch. He's always had really good control and can pitch multiple innings. Whether it's here or elsewhere he's a MLB pen arm

Friday 11/9:

"Right-hander Miguel Sanchez lowered his ERA to 1.29 and earned his first AFL win after tossing two scoreless frames out of the bullpen. He surrendered two hits, walked one batter and struck out a pair."

Reminder daily winter league season-to-date numbers for all Brewers, across all leagues, are here, bookmark this page.

In other words, a middle-relief role - a bridge to the back end of Jeffress/Knebel?

Latest box score captures AFL season in a nutshell -- Keston Hiura still raking (video evidence), Wes Wilson putting himself squarely in a future Hernan Perez replacement role, and Trent Grisham with a very long fall campaign, now 6-for-50 (all singles) with 19 K's (11 walks).

Hiura now 7-for-9 in SB attempts after going only 15-for-26 in attempts during the 2018 regular season.

Rare run allowed by RHP Jon Olzcak, who has been stellar --

Surprise Bottom of the 9th

Pitching Change: Jon Olczak replaces Matt Walker.
Santiago Espinal walks.
Yanio Perez flies out to center fielder Ian Miller. Santiago Espinal to 2nd.
Bryan Reynolds grounds out, shortstop Ray-Patrick Didder to first baseman Braxton Davidson. Santiago Espinal to 3rd.
Will Craig singles on a sharp ground ball to center fielder Ian Miller, deflected by shortstop Ray-Patrick Didder. Santiago Espinal scores.
Khalil Lee flies out to center fielder Ian Miller.

Box Score -- More goodness from Wes Wilson and Daniel Brown on Monday, and credit where it's due on a good Trent Grisham day, too.

Told by an American League scout regarding #Brewers Keston Hiura, "We all talk about the bat of Vladdy, with obvious reason, but outside of Vladdy, I'd call Keston the purest power bat I saw out in Arizona. He's just a special, special kid."

I like special, special kids with pure power bats.

I'm very excited to see Hiura's performance next season.

Especially at the 2nd base position. Cannot wait for June to see him in a Brewers uniform.

Yes, I think he's absolutely a middle reliever. He's a guy who can give you 3 innings too if there's an injury to a starter early in the game or if someone is getting rocked in the 3rd-4th innings and needs to come out. I don't think he's ever going to be a great middle reliever but I definitely think he can be a contributor in that role.

Looks like Trent Grisham is heating up.
https://twitter.com/MLBPipeline/status/ ... 7858507776

Looked like a solo shot.

I wonder if he can put together enough of a hit for average tool to go with his OBP skills.

Hiura: 2-4, 2B, HR, RBI
Grisham, 1-4, HR, RBI
M. Sanchez: 3 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Olczak: 1 IP, 0ER, 1 BB

Takeaways:
GRISHAM DID SOMETHING
Keston is good
Sanchez had a rough outing, but he’s had a really solid fall.
Olczak just keeps chugging along

Every time I have seen him play, he just hits the ball hard. His outs make you feel good. His bat most reminds me of a young Ryan Braun.

In Sat.'s televised Fall League Championship, opposing starting pitchers will be former Brewers Jordan Yamamoto (traded to MIA) and Miguel Diaz (lost on Rule 5 to Padres). OF Monte Harrison (MIA) starts for Salt River, as will 2B Keston Hiura for Peoria.

We all known Hiura can hit--but are there more scouting reports out there that describe his fielding at 2B in 2018? (just read the report from above from 20-80 baseball).

I'll be watching the AFL championship today to see what they have to say about Hiura's fielding.

The only question has been his arm, not if it is accurate or strong enough to play 2nd, but if it would fall off and require surgery due to the elbow soreness that kept him from playing the field most of his collegiate career. Him getting through 2018 without any sort of setback related to arm issues due to throwing is huge, even moreso than validation at the plate that he had the best hit tool in his draft. He would have likely been in the conversation for being taken 1st overall if his arm health wasn't a question 2 years ago.

Unfortunately, in the profile on Hiura by Jim Callis his only reference to defense at 2B was that "it's a work in progress."
