Prospect update!

I looked at some of the current statistics of some of the big-name prospects in our minor league system:

Johermyn Chavez (Brandon Morrow trade): .288/.380/.463

Carlos Triunfel: .256/.309/.349
Dustin Ackley: .139/.292/.215

Dan Cortes (Yuniesky Betancourt trade): 23.1 IP, 6.54 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, 22/13 K/BB
Mauricio Robles (Jarrod Washburn trade): 23 IP, 3.91 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 25/11 K/BB

Michael Saunders: .159/.224/.174
Greg Halman: .188/.328/.417

Luke French (Washburn trade): 32.0 IP, 1.41 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 19/9 K/BB
Steven Shell: 23.2 IP, 2.66 ERA, 1.1 WHIP, 17/7 K/BB

The good:

Luke French and Mauricio Robles, both coming from us trading Jarrod Washburn, are having decent seasons to start. The outlook of that trade was that French would be available to help the team immediately (he did, but ended up getting regulated to bullpen duty and was optioned to the minors at the end of Spring Training this year), and Robles would be helping the team out in the future. This looks to be holding true. Robles seems to be progressing pretty well, and we should hope to see him in a Rainier uniform next season, or sooner.

The slightly troubling:

– Dustin Ackley and Carlos Triunfel are having some rocky patches. Ackley seems to be hitting a lot of ground balls, so hopefully that will normalize soon. Overall, the season has just started, and horrid numbers like these aren’t t anything to freak out about, but if it becomes a seasonal trend of suck, then that’s when things might start to get worrisome.

Also, I have no idea where Derrick Saito (the other part of the Yunibomber trade) is winding up in the organization for this season, but he put up promising numbers in A-Ball last year. He’s definitely on my list of prospects to follow.
