With the Kansas City Royals crowned World Series Champions and the Toronto Blue Jays without their GM for the past 6 seasons, it’s time to turn our attention to the future and that means Fall and Winter baseball. We’ve got some Blue Jays minor league hands playing on several teams this off-season. Fall and Winter Baseball leagues have already begun in Arizona, Mexico, the Dominican, Venezuela and the Australian Baseball League.

A lot has happened since our last update, so let’s get to it.

Arizona Fall League

Salt River Rafters (4-4)

Rowdy Tellez

The burly power hitter collected 6 hits, 2 long balls and 4 RBI in his last 3 games. Tellez has done a great job of adjusting to better pitching with no strike outs and one walk during this time. In 11 games, Tellez is hitting .318 with 3 HR, 13 RBI, and .909 OPS. Tellez has hit RHP really well, hitting .394, but struggles against LHP with a .214 batting average.

Emilio Guerrero

Guerrero is hitting .219/.286/.281 with a .567 OPS in 9 games. Guerrero had two good games this past week going 2-for-4 with a double in both games; unfortunately, Guerrero is striking out too much which has always been his weakness.

Roemon Fields

Fields is hitting .205 in 12 games with a double, 2 triples, 4 RBI, 7BB, 8K, and 7-for-11 in stolen base attempts. Fields’ showed his speed game the past two games going 1-for-3 with a triple in one game and 2-for-4 with a walk and two SB in the other. Not bad for a guy that started the year in Hi-A ball.

Chad Girodo

Girodo hasn’t been used very much with only 3 appearances. Making the most of his limited playing time, Girodo has yet to allow a run in 5IP.

Jeremy Gabryszwski

After two sub-par starts, Gabryszwski turned in a solid start on Oct 30th. He allow a one run (HR) on 2 hits over 5 IP while walking one and striking out 4. Jeremy is sporting a 1-0 record with 4.76ERA, 4 BB, and 5 K’s.

Justin Shafer

Shafer has allowed one run in 4 appearance, good for a 1.29ERA. Justin has walked 2 and struck out 8 over 7IP while holding the opposition to a .269 average.

Brady Dragmire

Dragmire hasn’t been used too much, only pitching 5IP over 4 appearances. Brady has struck out 7, walked 3, and has yet to allow a run.

    David Harris 

    The 24-year-old from Houston, Texas continues to swing a hot bat for the Calvary, hitting .444 with 3 walks, 2 strike outs, 2 stolen bases, and 2 home runs. Harris has scored 8 runs and driven in 8, not too bad for a leadoff hitter. In a Halloween double-header, Harris went 2-for-3 with 3 runs scored, a home run, 2 RBI and two walks in game 1 then went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a K in game two.

    Jason Leblebijian

    In 8 games, Leblebijian is hitting .313 with 3 home runs and 8 RBI. Leblebijian went hitless for the first time this season versus Melbourne in a 3-1 loss, Canberra’s 2nd defeat of the season. Jason had a 5 RBI’s in game one of Canberra’s Halloween double-header, which also saw him hit his 2nd home run of the season. Leblebijian has done a good job as the Calvary’s everyday shortstop.

    Derrick Loveless

    The 22-year-old Loveless has struggled the past couple games, going hit-less in 3 of the last 4 games, 1-for-14 during that span. Loveless’ only hit was a solo shot on October 30th. He is hitting .190, with 2 HR, 4 RBI, 6 BB, and 8K while manning RF and CF.

    Colton Turner

    The 24-year-old Tuner only saw action in one game since the last update. He threw 47 pitched over 3 innings, 27 strikes, walking one and striking out 3. Turner allowed one hit and one run in that outing. The LHP is now 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA.

    Phil Kish

    Kish got rocked in his last two outings, allowing 5 runs on 6 hits over 2 IP. He is 0-0 with a 16.88 ERA with a 3.38 WHIP. Small sample size but definitely not what Phil was hoping for.
