  • My system had a difficult time choosing a Giants UTR pitcher to be my 2017 “One to Watch”. My formula narrowed it down to Grant Watson, Domenic Mazza, D.J. Myers, and a 17-old year in the DSL, Johan Herrera. Watson is currently on the DL, Mazza just threw a perfect game (system on-track?), and Myers’ pro debut last season should have  made him the obvious choice. Menez also made his debut last season and advanced to San Jose, holding his own in five starts. His stats across three levels didn’t compare to Myers, but my system scored him very close (to Myers), thus getting the OTW nod. Last nights outing was his third solid start and first time hitting double-digit K’s, setting a career high.

  • Jimenez makes his first start of 2017 due to the brutal schedule this week. The Shorebirds manager gave the ball to the reliever to rest his rotation, with three doubleheaders in seven days. Jimenez has been in the Orioles system since 2011 and spent two full seasons in the DSL before hitting the GCL in 2014. The 22 year old made 26 appearances with 20 starts in 2016, finishing with a 9-9 record, 4.27 ERA, and a 1.26 WHIP over 128.2 innings.
