    Perez has 46 extra-base hits in 969 career minor league at-bats. Considering that, I wonder if it would be more beneficial for him to skip Palm Beach next year.

    Peripherals aren’t everything. Woodford reminds me a lot of Brad Keller with the Royals, especially as he’s made the transformation from sinkerballer to exclusively using four-seams.

    With Gorman expected to open at Double-A next season, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Montero move over to first base full-time, a move I think would also take pressure off his bat.

    Mikolas not looking very sharp this evening. His stuff has clearly backed up this season. Velocity down. Breaking ball doesn’t have the same depth as last year. Fortunately, he still has enough pitchability to get by as a back-end starter.

    Ponce has a high-spin fastball, so he has more room for error than most when he makes a mistake.

    Correction: three starts since returning to Memphis. He’s struck out 28 batters in 18 innings.

    Drew Sutton was the last player in the Texas League to accomplish a 20-20 season in the Texas League. He played for Corpus Christi in 2008. Alex Gordon also had a 20-20 season when the Royals were the Wichita Wranglers. That was in 2006.

    Burgos with his first stateside home run today for GCL Cardinals. He has 10 homers overall this season.

    Arozarena had an outstanding month, but the separator for me was run production. As Brian mentioned, Gonzalez had the upper-hand by a wide margin in that department. Donovan also had a dynamic month not to be overlooked.

    Whitley is a sleeper. I had one scout tell me he is one of the most improved players in the Cardinals system this year. Velocity up to 96. Ditched a slider he used to use and now throws a curveball as his primary secondary offering. Also throws a changeup. Potential to be a major-league middle reliever, I’m told.

    Matt Carpenter will continue his rehab assignment with Springfield on Friday. It appears he will be with the club until Tuesday.

    On Gonzalez, he is a very good organizational player who may hit his way to the big-leagues like Xavier Scruggs, Jermaine Curtis, etc.

    Regarding Mieses, his numbers at Memphis aren’t sustainable. Same with Capel, who went up and had similar success after struggling at Springfield. I talked to one scout about this, who said Mieses saw a steady diet of breaking balls when he saw him at Springfield and he had a lot of swing and miss and unproductive at-bats. The older pitchers at Triple-A and the big-leagues will challenge hitters with fastballs in hitters’ counts until they prove they can hit it. Capel and Mieses are decent fastball hitters but don’t have great ideas at the plate and haven’t shown the ability to adjust to secondary pitches.
