Listen: Memphis, Cardinals, Saint Louis discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac
"When the season is over even during the off season and you can find out all kinds of different things not not only the minor leagues but the Major League Club is well Ryan Good morning to you. How are things going on always bad. I enjoyed your piece this morning on Memphis emphas- they had a really strong finish which was gonNA dovetail into some of the things that I wanted to get into in terms of various players at whether there with the big league club now or or could be in the future. So what did you find out about Memphis in diving into the finish of their season through interesting Ganymede. Is We talked about through much of year. The Memphis redbirds were major disappointment two time winner of the Pacific Coast League title and and Folks Thought a lot of folks thought heyday could potentially get a third dirt and as we got into mid July Memphis was in terrible shape they were twenty one games under five hundred a win percentage that three ninety two last play like seventeen games out in you know just look like the season was just going completely nowhere and then thanks guarded to pick up the relief pitching especially especially improved from an IRA over five to under three the starting pitcher got better the offense number players went very strong and to the point that Memphis one thirty one of their last forty three games so they played oversight over seven hundred ball and they went into the final series of the season with then outside chance of actually coming back to win their division. They fell short but still it was premiered. His turnaround from the season was looked completely lost. How did they do it. What was the the main reason they were able to turn things around. Relief pitching was the key to improvement all aspects of the game but when you look at the at the pitching there were one starter Daniel Prostate Leone who really stood out and we talked about Daniel before because he was not only the pitcher of the month for the cardinal system but then he was also oh named the player of the month for the entire Pacific closely then including pitchers and hitters zero point nine three in his five starts but then the relievers three relievers who we know of Dominick Leone Mike Myers chasing tree to the three you're back with Saint Louis pissed extremely well. Myers had sick saved for Memphis and then the other two names of the pictures that stood out or young pitchers junior Fernandez who was Saint Louis had an era of two point eight in the last period through Memphis but there that we haven't talked about it all cody Whitley a twenty four year old from North Carolina who was drafted just in two thousand seventeen and the twenty twenty seven th round and cody. Riley began the year in Palm Beach moved up to springfield pitched extremely where that will there be are a around up to then came up to Memphis and locked at one point seven one point five year with over ten strikeouts per nine cody way at least one of the players. It's GonNa be going to the euro-zone. Foley and it looks like he could definitely be a relief. Fisher for Saint Louis in two thousand twenty so that's on the pitching side Brian. How about TAB MEMPHIS with some of their hitters in guys stood out that comeback from Memphis in its final forty three games is really driven by some strong performances across the entire offense inspect Randy Rhoads arena of course we've seen Saint Louis and John Gauss key first baseman both had opiates as well over a thousand answer the dose Garcia in even though it goes didn't get you called up he hit fourteen home runs and drove in thirty eight runs in his last thirty eight games so a tremendous part of the power and production they need Memphis Justin Williams and Ramona radius and it mood associated all social. WHO's of course we're seeing? Louis appears over nine fifty so the Memphis offense really got clicking in all gears as the relief pitching in Daniel Punsalan. Let the rotation I WANNA get into some of those individuals momentarily you mentioned Arizona. Fall like do we know who's headed to the Arizona Fall League at all. Yes the cardinals may go now eight minor leaguers going to fall league seven of whom of been named aimed and that does that starts a week from today. Wednesday September eighteenth in Arizona and runs through just finished just before Halloween and the cardinals typically think down one starter and for raw three or four relief pitchers and as well as the then of course catcher infielder outfielder Griffin Roberts who early pick in two thousand eighteen is going down. He was at Palm Beach and he was the player who is suspended in the season. Has An excellent slider is sliders orange his his claim to fame but he was very very consistent. Griffin Roberts was at Palm Beach. I really hadn't had a tough time this season so it'll be interesting to see how he performs wanted against that advanced competition accordingly the reliever. I mentioned before is going down as set eligible is another two thousand seventeen drafty who like Willie's move very quickly in his already reached Memphis in just a season and a half basically as a professional and then on the office side don't cost and everybody knows and your doc Carlson and already had over five hundred fifty played appearances during the season but he could get another hundred or so experienced against some good pitching in Arizona Alerts Montana the third basement had a had a really tough season because he had a Hemi own injury and so for him. It's about getting more at bats and you're trying to get his power back. Kramer Roberson infielder from Lsu that the cardinals drafter of years back bounce between Springfield and Memphis very good defensively hasn't really comfortable yet with the bat and then the second youngest pitcher in the Arizona in excuse me the second player in the Arizona Fall League nineteen-year-old Catcher Yvonne Herrera who has exceptional at got to open the season fish the year at Palm Beach and the cardinals have a lot of interest and excitement about young catcher Yvonne Guerrero who will also be among the cardinals group in Arizona Fall League more of a catch and throw guy or can he hit a little bit to Brian. Oh no he's got a very good bad over eight hundred even in his introduction at Palm Beach which is the exceptional in a in a hideously so I think they have a lot of hopes for him.
