Cove Chatter 100: #49

Rando Moreno | 2B, 21 yo, 5-11, 165, BR, TR | IFA DR 2011 | (A) 13 G, 37 PA, .353/.371/.500, 871 OPS, 0 HR, 4 RBI, 2 SB, 2 CS, 1 BB, 6 K | (AZL) 28 G, 130 PA, .342/.403/.453, .856 OPS, 0 HR, 18 RBI, 10 SB, 4 CS, 12 BB, 18 K

DSL graduate finished an impressive season in Augusta after a nice early-year run in the AZL. Can hold his own defensively all over the infield; adds some speed and a good plate approach. He’s an intriguing player with a good skillset, but he doesn’t offer much in the way of power. Not much of a paper trail on him yet, so a full season at Augusta (or higher?) next year could give us a better idea of what he offers.

They said it: “Augusta got its first look at Rando Moreno…showing an aggressive swing with good bat speed. Moreno also had an outstanding pivot and throw to first base to turn a double play, flashing a solid arm and release.” ~ David Lee, Augusta Chronicle

  1. Interesting guy, I noticed him playing but didn’t really look into him. One note: if you could include SB/CS instead of SB that’s helpful (Moreno had 6 CS’s over 2 levels). Also, combining levels is good for convenience, but with prospects it can be a big difference in competition, you might want to break them out. Cheers.

    1. I agree with Shankbone’s points on presentation. Guys who have a lot of CS will eventually be not allowed to run on his own, and his SB will go down drastically. And separation of performance by level is key as well, as that combining hides his accomplishments he might have had on one level, as it is not that unusual to struggle at a new level, as they adjust. So his numbers might look ordinary when he actually did well at one level, then struggled.

      I would also give the traditional batting line: BA/OBP/SLG/OPS. I would also add BB% and contact rate (or K% if you prefer that), instead of the raw numbers. The raw numbers don’t tell you much. And for pitchers, definitely include K/9 and K/BB ratios.

      I love the “They said it”, that is very unique, keep up the good work.

      1. Thanks for the tips, I will see what I can do to change a few things. Glad you like the quotes… I thought that would be a nice add-on for the top 50.

I'd love your feedback!
