AFL Weekly Update: Ward Stays Hot, Alcantara Highlights Pitchers’ Success

Updated: October 24, 2016

After two weeks of Arizona Fall League action, Halo prospects have settled in with the Scottsdale Scorpions. Six of the seven prospects have played in at least three games for Scottsdale with the exception of Grayson Long. This week, Angels prospects improved on their fairly decent first week.

For Halo hitters, Taylor Ward took the helm this week for the Scorpions, going 4-for-10 with two RBIs. The catcher raised his average to .353 and his OPS to .824. The only cause for concern is the fact that Ward has yet to draw a walk.

CF Michael Hermosillo cooled down after a hot start to the season, going 2-for-11 with an RBI and a stolen base. SS David Fletcher has struggled and has one hit in his last 10 at-bats. His lone hit this week was a triple. They are hitting .25o and slugging .391 collectively.

Halo pitchers improved greatly after an abysmal first where they held an 11.74 ERA. This week, they held a 3.00 ERA. Victor Alcantara threw two innings of hitless ball this week, a huge improvement on his five run outing in the first week of action.

Grayson Long gave up one run in his lone start this week. He struck out four and walked none in three innings. Adam Hofacket gave up one run on two hits in 2.2 innings of relief. Eduardo Paredes gave up one run in 1.1 innings. As a group, Halo pitchers struck out eight, walked three, only gave up one home run.

All stats as of 10/24
