AFL lines, 11/1/05

Mesa and Grand Canyon tied 1-1 (11 innings)

Giants lines:
RHP Jeremy Accardo: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 0 HR--plus 1 WP and 1 IBB

Other Mesa lines:
2. CF Chris Denorfia: 1 for 3, HR, 2 BB, K
RHP David Aardsma: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 0 HR

Notable Grand Canyon lines:
RF Reggie Abercrombie: 2 for 4, BB, K, 2 SB
Travis Bowyer: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 0 HR

Accardo now has just 6 K, along with 4 BB, in 12.0 IP.  His ERA is 4.50.  Aardmsa had one of his best games, particularly in terms of BB/IP.

Cincinnati's Denorfia is now hitting .309/.420/.544 after hitting .310/.391/.505 with triple-A Louisville this year.  How does he fit in the Reds future plans?  Abercrombie with another fine game against Mesa.  The Marlins prospect has found hitting (for AVG and thus OBP) much easier in the AFL.  Bowyer is a Twins prospect, who lowered his AFL ERA to 8.76.  He had a fine season in triple-A, despite a moderately high BB/IP.

Elsewhere in the AFL:
Dodgers: 3B Andy LaRoche: 3 for 4, 2B, BB, K, CS
Athletics: RF Andre Ethier: 3 for 4, 2B, BB, K
RHP Clint Nageotte: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

In the Dominican Winter League:
SS Clint Barmes: 2 for 4

In the Venezuelan Winter League:
Orioles: 1B Walter Young: 2 for 5, HR, K

LaRoche and Ethier are now batting .380 and .373.  Nageotte has a low 1.64 ERA, which ranks 3rd best among the 10 pitchers with 20+ IP.

Barmes is hitting just .242. so far.  Was his rookie season a fluke?  Young is a barrel-shaped power hitter.  (I did see him steal a base against Matt Cain, though.)
