Memphis Mayhem "down on the farm"

Next up is the Memphis Mayhem. We searched high and low, and we finally found some players that were actually causing "Mayhem" in the system.

1.Matt Javier.... Matt is in AAA and so far he is doing well. He has good stamina, very good control, below average splits, to go along with 4 pitches. He is 5-2 with 5 saves in 6 chances. So far in 33 innings, he has given up 34 hits, 3 homers, 10 walks, while fanning 26. His era is right at 3.00.

2.Sherry Simpson.....Simpson got promoted to ML recently, and is currently supporting a monthly bus pass between AAA and the ML. Simpson has had a few chances in the ML, but being inconsistent, has propelled him to get occasional bus rides between levels. He was 0-1 and 8 for 9 in saves before this promotion. His ERA was 1.32, and in 14 innings, he gave up 15 hits, 0 homers, 4 walks, while fanning 16. He has good control, good splits, and 2 decent pitches.

3. Harry Foster..... Harry is in High A, and despite his 4-7 record he is doing well down there. In 89 innings, he has given up 98 hits. 9 homers, 23 walks, while striking out 69. He may never reach the big leagues, but he is really poised to be a fine pitcher in the minor leagues. His 2.83 ERA, decent control, low splits, and sub par 4 pitches will keep him at bay in the minors.

4.Deivi Armas...... Armas has started his minor league career with a bang. He has pitched 38 innings, giving up 35 hits, 0 homers, walking 5, while striking out 38. He is 9 for 11 in saves with a 1.66 ERA. He has good control, 4 decent pitches, good splits, and could be a sleeper in the future seasons.

5. Sadie Pride.... Sadie "don't call me Charley" Pride is currently enrolled in Low A this season. He has hit .338 with 17 doubles, 4 triples, 4 homers, while driving in 68. He also has 33 walks, and a .406 OBP.

6.Rich Russell.... Rich is in AA and doing a wonderful job down there. He has hit .353, with a very good .420 OBP. He has 26 doubles, 18 homers, 75 RBI'S while walking 36 times. He has only fanned 48, in just over 330 at bats. He has good power, very good contact, decent splits and a very good batting eye.

7. Alex Encarnacion.... Alex is hitting .321 in AAA so far this season. He has 22 doubles, 3 triples, 8 homers, while driving in 61. He has walked 17 times, while fanning 61. The strike out are a little alarming, but he is young and should improve. He has decent power, control, batting eye, and above average splits. He could make the major leagues pretty soon.
