AFL Weekly Recap: Santos is Hitting Well, While Curry is Struggling

  • emjayinTN

    Crumpton has proven his worth since being drafted in the 9th Round out of Georgia Tech a few years ago. An innings-eater who keeps the ball down, he had 160 IP in AA this year – 27 starts, 12-11, 3.84 ERA, .232 Average Aagainst. Still only 23, he will probably start at AAA and could be a mid-year possibility in 2013 either as a SP or a RP.

    Hard not to like Santos, drafted in the 22nd Round the same year as Crumpton. Strong bat, great patience/OBP, but no real position. Played middle infield in college, OF so far in the minors.

    I watched Santos in the Az. League a couple of weeks ago at 2B. The ball jumps off his bat but he is one of the worst Defensive players I have seen at a high level. He has a really weak and inaccurate arm and every play (which he made them all this day) look extremely difficult even when they were hit right at him. he snow coned 2 GBs and all of his throws were weak and well off the bag. Their is hope but nothing is natural here. Its going to take a tremendous amount of work before he has a shot at Pitt.. I did love his bat speed and the way the ball came off his bat. Currys bat looked really slow. Gif looked smooth at short but somewhat over matched at the played though he did generate good bat speed. None of the pitchers threw while I was their. what I took away from this is none of these guys will likely have an impact in Pittsburgh.
