Prospect Watch: Final Two Days for the Short-Season Teams

The full-season teams are off today. The short-season clubs wrap up their regular season tomorrow. All three are playing today, and the Pirates Black have a completion of a suspended game on the schedule as well. That game has no affect on the standings, so we will see if they actually play both games or not. The Pirates Gold will start the playoffs on Thursday.

Game Recap:

The regularly scheduled game was postponed, as the Pirates Black and Mets1 finished off a suspended game from last month (see below). The two teams meet tomorrow on the final day of the regular season, so it’s possible that they play two games, but not necessary for the standings.

Here’s the boxscore for the suspended game, which was finished before the regular game. All of the stats you see, such as RBI totals, averages, ERA, etc are all retroactive to the date that the game started (July 22nd).

I thought this Temarr Johnson can roll out of bed and hit? If he’s not a .330 hitter, then the pick is a waste.


The chances we see Henry Davis again this season are????


I’ll believe it when I see it. I’m guessing he and Nick are big candidates for the AFL?


Both of them plus priester should go imo, those extra games would be really nice


Why can’t they just let them play until the end of the month? Would that kill anyone?

I feel like this is where I’m supposed to yell something about these being young kids and they should be able to play three full 9-inning games in one day, 365 days out of the year.


Woot! Any idea where he went?

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

No idea lol I only know what the box scores show.


So what these guys do when the short season finishes? Do they all immediately go home? Do they hang around Bradenton a while?
