Cubs 2012 Arizona Instructional League - Final Stats

Here are the final statistics from the Cubs 2012 AZ Instructional League (AZIL) season.

There is no official scorer at the games, so all stats are “unofficial.”

Stats from Instructs intra-squad games and “sim” game are not included.

19 AZIL games were originally scheduled, but four of the games were canceled to allow for additional “Camp Days,” and another game was canceled due to a mix-up in the schedule (the Cubs played an intra-squad game that day instead).

Just as a matter of context, the AZ Instructional League is approximately equivalent to half-way between Boise and Peoria (Kane County) -- so it is sort of “Boise-plus” or “Peoria/Kane-lite.”

FINAL RECORD: 8-6

  • trevor clifton (high-A) could be interesting in a couple seasons...could even become a high/middle rotation guy. he's got a lot of pluses in his pitching except control.

    eric leal's (high-A) progression through the minors should be worth watching even if only projects to be an mid/end-rotation starter.

    we also gotta keep a long-distance eye on guys like jose paulino (ss-A) and preston morrison (A).

  • As Johnny Bach used to say when it was time for the MJ Bulls to crank up the defensive pressure: "Release the Dobermans!", and Jordan, Pippen, Rodman and Harper would just suffocate the other team.

    I'd love to add Carl Jr. to that group - he's got the stuff.

  • Historically, the Moneyball guys have been great at identifying productive hitters. Not so much with pitchers.

  • Wow - Pierce Johnson with an ERA of 8.01 in 42IP!

    What a stud prospect! Must be pitching with a pierced johnson.

    Looks like Ryan Williams is the only legit prospect there. That is sad...

    I really like Lackey as a 6-inning pitcher.

  • ...and Familia with back-to-back blown saves. Blows a one-run lead vs. Rockies today, gets his 2nd consecutive loss.

    I am OK with the Mets missing the playoffs and suffering crushing losses at home --- just want them to beat St. Louis.

    He played with fire twice agains the Cubs -- unfortunately, the Cubs couldn't stop swinging.

  • I think Javy is learning--but he's learning to make contact, not learning to lay off pitches out of the zone. A quick glance at his plate discipline numbers on Fangraphs shows that his contact rate is up, especially his contact rate out of the zone, but his swing rate is up too, especially his swing rate out of the zone.

  • I definitely saw ballpark radar guns go up to 102 on Kerry Wood back when he was still a starter, but who knows how accurate they were.
