AFL Recap 10/25: Grossman’s 6th HR, Inman PITCHfx

Robbie Grossman continued his hot hitting in the Arizona Fall League today, going 1-for-4 at the plate with his sixth homer of the year.  The home run came in the third inning with one on, tying the game at 2-2 at the time.  Mesa would go on to lose 8-6 in ten innings.  Grossman’s six homers is tied for the league lead.  He also leads the league in slugging and OPS out of all batters with 50+ at-bats.

Jeff Inman pitched an inning today, his second in the AFL.  Inman saw a runner reach on a fielding error, advance to second on a stolen base, and move to third on a ground out.  Inman got the runner out at home on a fielder’s choice play at the plate, after a ground ball to third.  He finished off the inning with a ground out to second, his fourth ground out of the inning.

Inman needed just 12 pitches to get through the inning.  11 of those pitches were fastballs, and Inman was 93-96 MPH with the pitch.  He hit 93 once, on the first pitch, hit 96 once, and averaged 94.5 MPH with his fastball.  He threw one curveball a 79 MPH.

Mesa plays tomorrow at 3:35 PM EST, with Gerrit Cole taking the mound for his third AFL start.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.
