Anyone know how Lavarnway is defensively?

He is having a great season and was just named best power prospect in Baseball America's best tools survey.

Will he remain a catcher when he reaches the majors?

Matt Moore made his 5th start with AAA Durham this evening. He went 6 innings allowing no runs on 2 hits, 2 walks and he struck out 10. Unfortuantely, the bullpen blew his chances at a win, but he's been lights out. Over his 5 starts, here are his stats.

IP: 30.2 SO: 49 ERA: .88 H:16 BB:7

Below average.

Had a good year with the stick. Raking at AAA. Projects as a DH type in majors, very good power, he was originally an outfielder. Federowicz appears to be he future behind the plate along with Salty. He's the complete opposite of Lavarnway.

Sox did draft a catcher early this past draft (yet to sign him I think) but catchers take their time developing.

D-backs signed their 10th rounder Kyle Winkler. Top-2 rounds talent that fell because of an injury. For 240K that's a major coup.

The only good thing about the Twins this year maybe 3B/SS/DH Miguel Sano in rookie ball.

He's had a terrific year in rookie ball.

EDIT TO ADD:

To put it into perspective, he's had 30 XBH in less than 200 AB, which is terrific in any level.

He's terrible defensively, atrocious even.

Pedro Alvarez sent down again.

He and Travis Snider are like in the same boat at this point.

Hopefully their careers go the way of Alex Gordon and they eventually figure it out.

Yesterday, Strasburg's line:

1.2 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, and 2 BB. He K'd 3. He faced 11 batters.

Do not ****ing call him up in September. Let him stay in the minors.

Also, Noah Syndergaard is impressing a lot of people.

He apparently hits high 90's regularly with his FB, has a great feel for his curveball and a change which is coming along (helps he's in the Jay's farm system which teaches anyone who is willing to learn a MLB average change up).

EXTREMELY excited for Syndergaard, threw five hitless innings today. Another guy that intrigues me is Nestor Molina, who threw five scoreless innings for AA New Hampshire, striking out nine and walking none. In two AA starts his K:BB ratio is 17:1 and in A Dunedin it was 115:14 in 108 innings, absolute incredible control.

5 innings with 5hit/8Ks/3BB/3ER for Trevor Bauer today. Arizona could call him up and use him out of the pen when rosters expand.

2nd AA start.

They could, but I'd leave him there.

He'll always K alot, but he needs to give out less BB's. Still, great prospect. Could be better than Cole.

Matt Moore is dealing again. 6IP, 6 hits, 1BB, 6K and 0 runs. His AAA ERA is now under 1. Most likely his 2nd last start for Durham.

Will be a top-5 pitching in the MLB within 5 years imo.

He doesn't get a lot of attention because the rest of the farm system kind of sucks but Wily Peralta needs to get some top 100 consideration at the very least from BA next year.

Should be in I reckon.

BA ranked them as the worst farm system when they did their rankings early this year. Bradley and Jungmann will help but there isn't much there after these 3.

Yup.

Our pitching depth in the minors is Liam Hendriks......and that's it.

Bright spots are there:

Sano
Rosario
Arcia
Benson

All had seasons ranging from good to very good to absurd(Sano).

Some twins news:

- Australian pitcher Liam Hendriks gets the call to start tomorrow after Brian Duensing got injured today.

- Alex Wimmers throws a 7 IP no hitter. What's remarkable about this is, for the majority of the year, he was suffering from 'the thing'. It's referred to as 'the thing' because no one knew what on earth was wrong with him, and the Twins didn't release any info about it. He lost his control (worrying if your a control pitcher like him), his velocity was reportedly down, he could barely go an inning without giving up a run. Then the kid throws a no-hitter.

I've heard that Humber - Swarzak and Stewart - Diamond will be starters for a double header tommorow.

Good for Hendriks though. Hughes and Hendriks were team mates in ABL.

Willin Rosario making his debut tonight for Rockies. That now makes Jays D'Arnaud the best catcher in minors. Also Drew Pomeranz is up with the big club.

Nice! D'Arnaud hopefully is a top 20 prospect next season, I have high hopes for him.
