    Peoria is 3-3 going to the sixth. Cordero is through 5 IP only 60 pitches. DPerez is 3 for 3.

    Poor Delvin is hitting .290…but with one extra base hit and only 5 walks on the year, his OBP and SLG are barely hovering above his average.

    Very good pitching by Gonzalez tonight. 11 K’s. He has only given 1 or 2 homers in his short career. Lots of ground ball outs too.
    ALso, I did not realize Whalen is only 21, and Perez 20. Whalen is enjoying a breakout year, and Perez is hitting better than expected. The only downside is Perez’ 5 errors already. Quite a few for someone who is said to be good glove, no bat.

    As noted on another thread, Delvin is neither walking nor getting extra base hits. Singles are better than outs, but it isn’t a solid profile.

    Someone needs to take Perez to Jim’s Steak House a couple times a week and fill him up and out.

    It’s impossible to know for sure, but it sure seems like Delvin benefited greatly from whatever he was taking before he was drafted. Other than that first year in GCL, he’s had virtually no pop in his bat. It’s a shame, because even if he had Pete Kozma level bat skills he could probably carve an MLB career out, given his defensive upside.

    Alas, he’ll have his draft signing bonus to fall back on, which is more than any of us could say at age 20/21.

    I think Delvin still has a chance at a Kozma type of career. A punch and judy hitter that can hit .250 or better with an excellent glove can at least be a utility player.
