New Hampshire Fisher Cats

Roemon Fields, 25-yrs-old

Fields soared through the Jays minor league system, starting the year in Advanced-A Dunedin and finishing in Triple-A Buffalo. After staring in Vancouver’s OF in 2014, skipping over Lo-A Lansing was surprising for the speedy outfielder.

In 119 games Fields played 112 games in CF he posted a 2.56 RangeFactor and .990 Fld%, while collecting 11 outfield assists and committing 3 errors.

Fields put up awful wOBA numbers at NH and Buffalo and below average wOBA numbers in Dunedin. In Triple-A he posted .276 wOBA and 70 wRC+, while in Double-A he put up .291 wOBA and 81 wRC+. In Dunedin, Roemon posted a .313 wOBA and 101 wRC+.

Launching pad- Splitting time in CF with Pompey in Buffalo

Ian Parmley 25-yrs-old

The 7th rd pick in 2012 split 2015 between Dunedin and New Hampshire playing 30 games in CF, 25 games in LF, and 16 games in RF. He posted the highest RangeFactor in RF with 2.81 and the highest Fld% in CF of .987. In 71 games, Ian had 4 OF assists, 3 errors and finished with 2/46 RangeFactor and .983Fld%.

Parmley played much better at the higher level in New Hampshire than at the lower level in Dunedin. He hit for more power in .083 ISO versus .017 in Dunedin. He produced an average .319 wOBA and 101 wRC+ in New Hampshire.

Overall Ian Parmley hit .278/.331/.361 with a .692 OPS, 4 doubles, 2 triples, a HR, 16RBI, 7.5BB%, 14.3K% and .321BABIP for the Fisher Cats.

Launching pad- Expect Parmley to get more time in LF and RF than CF with the prospects coming up. Ian should start the year in New Hampshire.
