Buffalo is next up on our report. Stuck in Northern New York, Buffalo has found a way to keep Dunn Tire Park full and happy. Let's see who is making noise in the farm systems.
1. Earl Cook. Earl in in Low A and doing a very good job. He is a Catcher with decent power, splits, and a very good batting eye. He has a very good arm, thus the reason he is throwing out 50% of would be base stealer's ( 22 of 45). Earl has 16 doubles, 15 homers, 59 RBI'S, while walking 35 and fanning 38.
2.Nick Hardy..... Nick is a switch hitter with the ability to place the ball in the gap very often. He has so so splits, but he gets the job done. He has 35 doubles, 1 triple, 5 homers, 46 RBI'S in just 69 games. He has walked 24 times, while fanning 49, and supports a .428 OBP. With time and patience he could even make that better in his minor league career.
3.Hamlet Knight. Hamlet is in Low A this season, and he is not acting. That was bad, sorry. He has average splits, and he does manage to hit the ball around the field. He is hitting .341, with 30 , 3 triples, 15 homers, while driving in 73. He has walked 37 times, while striking out 45. He is also 9 for 10 in stolen base attempts.
4.Otis Barry ..... Otis will probably not make it far in the minors, due to his splits, etc. When a pitcher is 7-0 in Low A he deserves to be mentioned. He has an ERA of 3.34. In 56 innings, he has given up 52 hits, 1 homers, 21 walks, while fanning 35. He has 5 pitches, only 1 above 50, low splits, good stamina, and decent control.
5. Thurmond Sanford......Thurmond is in High A and he is doing a great job. He has very good control, good splits, 2 very good pitches, and he is using them well. In 20 innings, he has given up 11 hits, 2 homers, 8 walks, while fanning 14. He is 0-1 with 10 saves in 13 chances, and his ERA is 3.15
6.Harry Silva.....Harry was in AA in the Bison farm system. He was 6-3 with a 2.63 ERA. He had pitched 68 innings, gave up 63 hits, 7 homers, 20 walks, while striking out 65. He was just re3cently traded to Detriot. He has great stamina, good control, very good splits, and 4 pitches to employ.
7.Sidney Miles......Sidney was doing such a great job in AA, he got promoted to the Big league level recently. In AA he was 13 for 14 in save chances, sported a 1.89 ERA, had given up 13 hits, 1 homer, 8 walks, while fanning 21 in 20 innings.He has decent control, very good splits, and 2 pitches to have fun with.
8. Wiki Salinas........Wiki is going to be a good Major leaguer in the upcoming seasons. He has decent power, good splits, very decent contact, and a respectable batting eye. He is currently in AA and teaaring it up down there. He is hitting .378, with a lofty .430 OBP. He has 25 doubles, 2 triples, 14 homers, while driving in 54. He also has 24 walk, while fanning 39 times in 270 at bats.
