Can you believe, Dear Reader, that the Arizona Fall League has concluded already?
Well, it’s an honor to be selected to play there, so let’s look at how the three former Valley Leaguers pitched (because all three are hurlers).
- Max Povse (Staunton 2013) started 6 games for Peoria, and went 1-2, 4.56, with 28 hits, 6 walks, and 25 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings pitched. I can’t help but wonder if he was auditioning for a starting job with the 2018 Seattle Mariners… right now, rosterresource.com has Max listed at #7 for the rotation (2nd in AAA, with a mid-2018 ETA).
- Tyler Cyr (Waynesboro 2014) pitched in 8 games for Scottsdale, and was also named to the all-star team. He went 0-1, 5.63 in 8 innings, with 8 hits, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts.
- Ryan Meisinger (Staunton 2014) was assigned to Salt River after the season started. He appeared in 6 games, going 1-0, 0.00 in 6 innings, while allowing 1 hit, 2 unearned runs, 0 walks, and 0 strikeouts. It’s a little odd that he didn’t walk or strike out anyone.
