Just a thought.

Pimentel is striking out more batters and not allowing as many hits. Yeah, you want fewer walks. I also heard some good reports on his pitching.
2. With Cunningham I’m looking more at what he’s done in the past. He had a .258 ISO in high-A. I guess I’m also thinking long-term. I don’t look at stats and expect them to stay the same as a player moves up. So I look at a .200 ISO and see that going down in Triple-A and the majors.

As for Wood, all of that information is in the Prospect Guide.

Allie wouldn’t be the next guy on the list. I try to include him most nights in the West Virginia section.

1) I wouldn’t call Pimentel’s latest start a ‘continuation of his recent strong starts.’ 4 BBs, in 5 IP, is more in line w/ his last couple of years than the early results this season.
2) Also, a .200 ISO (admittedly VERY early) *is* great for a MIF like Cunningham. In fact, it’s pretty special. Too bad he can’t make enough contact to realize his power.

Also, what is Wood’s ranking in the system? For all the guys I’ve followed, I probably know the least about him.

SInce Jin-De Jhang is in extended spring training. Might it be possible to move Pimentel up one and add Allie to the list. I am thinking Jhang will not be playing until either State College or Rookie ball starts. Might be wrong. I realize Heredia is also in extended spring training but I think he will end up at West Virginia eventually and is only being kept there to limit his pitch count and wait for warmer weather do you agree.
