I feel like Cox should hit better.
It looks Cox is in way over his head. I mean, obviously 17 ABs is no sample size at all, but Cox is getting straight dominated so far. Hopefully he starts figuring things out.
Eh yeah…I guess. A couple scouts I know ignore the first 100 at bats for someone at a new level, good or bad. This whole fall is just prep work for Cox to get those atbats out of the way.
that’s one way to look at it, but I’m never in favor of ignoring anything, especially in the minor leagues where you’re just making small sample sizes smaller.
The AFL is aimed at guys like Cruz and Chambers who have completed AA ball and are looking to improve for the step up to AAA. Cox and Swaggerty have not even played A ball. If they do not perform well, its no surprise.
Exactly. In my head, I was hoping that Cox could hit the ground running at AA but maybe A+ or even Quad Cities would be a good starting place.
Cox should be assigned to Palm Beach in April 2011.
Having to carry Cox on the 40 roster in 2011 really blows.
Isn’t this Cox first game action since his college season ended? Bound to be some rust on him, plus he is facing better competition in the AFL.
Completey agree. He’s just starting to hit against game-competition pitching again. Let’s see what he’s doing at the end of the AFL season.
nah, he played in the PCL toward the end of the season
He had 15 AB in the Gulf Coast League according to MILB .
He tore it up, but that is no surprise as the GCL is not the same level of competition as the AFL .
Yeah, I meant GCL. Get those mixed up all the time.
This is off topic- but I was wondering if we could put together a “depth chart” of our minor league talent.
I remember there being one on the .com version of this site and I really liked it.
I also like that idea.
Are you talking about something like a depth chart based on prospect ranking or by proximity to the majors?
I have a feeling he is referring to rankings but I’m not 100% sure.
Why not both?
A depth chart based on proximity to the majors sounds like a helpful tool. It’d help paint a clearer picture of our major roster in the coming years, so maybe including the current major league roster wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
I’d like to see it too, and it would also be nice to have the same thing for the previous couple of years. One reason is that I don’t think the chart really helps “paint a clearer picture” for the coming years (since even in the Tampa Bay or other top systems, many prospects get traded rather than appearing with the team that signed them), as much as it enables a later look back, to try to figure out what the franchise is really doing. If we’d had this capability in 2008, for example, it might — might — have enabled a clearer retrospective on whether the K-Greene deal was really a good idea. How close was Gregerson to major-league ready? In hindsight, the answer is “VERY close,” but I’m honestly not sure whether that was knowable at the time. A depth chart to go back to might shed light on things like that.
Thanks to Brian Walton, a depth chart exists. Look here
Cox is not there to set the world on fire, rather to get in some work.
