With the Arizona Fall League about a third of the way complete, I thought I would look at how each Cardinal representative is looking so far this fall. Stephen Piscotty Piscotty has played in 8 games for the Salt River Rafters and has hit safely in the last six. While he has yet to hit a home run, he is hitting .414 with a 1.091 OPS. He is third in the league with 5 stolen bases, one behind the co-leaders. After striking out twice in each of his first three games, Piscotty has not K’d in his past 5 games. While the power numbers aren’t there yet, he is still hitting for extra bases with two doubles and two triples (tied for first in the league). James Ramsey Ramsey has played in 6 of Salt River’s 10 games thus far and like Piscotty, he is off to a roaring start. He has collected 8 hits in those 6 games for a .364 average. Ramsey also has two doubles and a home run to go along with four runs batted in and six runs scored. Something that I thought he needed to work on this fall was his strikeouts, and while it is still early, he has struck out five times in his six games. Ramsey does have three stolen bases so far. Jacob Wilson Wilson has only appeared in four games for the Rafters, with his last being his most successful. On Saturday, Wilson had two singles and also drove in two runs. On the short season, he has three hits in 13 at-bats with three RBI’s. Wilson struggled after getting promoted to Palm Beach, so seeing the increase in competition will be a good thing for him. Sam Gaviglio The Cardinals representative in the Salt River starting rotation, Gaviglio has made two starts. In his first start on October 11th, he allowed three runs on six hits over four innings. His latest start on October 18th was more successful, as he allowed just one run on four hits over 4 innings with four strikeouts. He has allowed 10 total hits and has recorded 7 strikeouts in his 8 innings thus far. Lee Stoppelman Stoppelman, one of the Cardinals fastest risers through the minor league season, has appeared in just two games this fall and has yet to allow a run in 2 1/3 innings. In those two appearances, he has walked three, allowed one hit, and struck out two. After throwing 66 innings this season, his innings will be limited in the fall. Anthony Ferrara Ferrara has pitched in three ball games this fall and has yet to allow a hit in three innings of relief. He has walked two and struck out four. Ferrara struggled this season with the Springfield Cardinals, as he had a 5.84 ERA and walked 54 batters in 98 innings. A focus on control will be what he is working on this fall. Dean Kiekhefer Kiekhefer, the third lefty the Cardinals have in Arizona, has appeared in three games and has allowed a run on six hits over four innings of work. He has struck out five batters and has yet to allow a walk. Kiekhefer had a solid 2013 between Palm Beach and Springfield. Limiting hits may be an area of focus for him as opponents hit .282 against him in the regular season, about 20-30 points higher than his career average. The Salt River Rafters return to action on Monday with a 4-6 record and have 21 games remaining. Things I am looking for including home runs from Piscotty, low strikeout numbers from Ramsey, and continued domination from Stoppelman. Follow me on Twitter @CardinalsFarm or on Facebook.
