Chris Jackson of the Albuquerque Examiner tweeted to me and said that Dodgers left-hander Onelki Garcia hasn’t appeared yet in the Arizona Fall League because of an oblique injury, but he was unable to confirm it. If true, I wouldn’t expect to see Garcia play at all in the AFL, though he could still pitch in another winter league. —– Arizona Fall League Gorman Erickson – C 11 G, .276/.432/.345/.777, 2 2B, 8 BB Erickson is having a decent AFL campaign in his second year in the league. The power he displayed in his 2011 campaign (.204 ISO) is all but gone, as hi ISO at Chattanooga was .095 and it’s just .069 in the AFL. Joc Pederson – OF 9 G, .094/.171/.094/.265, 3 RBI, 2 SB Pederson had been out of action since Oct. 23, but he returned to the Solar Sox‘s lineup yesterday and promptly went 0-for-3. His AFL season has been atrocious, but he still got an invite to the Rising Stars game, which was held on Saturday. Someone mentioned that Pederson could be fatigued and I buy it. He played 110 games this season, then played in the World Baseball Classic qualifying tournament with Israel before heading to Arizona. I don’t think the jump in competition had this much negative impact on Pederson. Rafael Ynoa – 2B 18 G, .338/.365/.529/.893, 7 XBH, 7 SB Ynoa has been a stud for Mesa so far. He leads the club in hitting and is tied with Cubs prospect Matt Szczur in stolen bases. He’s also popped two home runs in the league — two more than he did in 421 Southern League at-bats. Ah, the rarefied air of Arizona. Eric Eadington – LHP 8.2 IP, 7.27 ERA, 2.19 WHIP, 11.4 K/9 Eadington was doing fairly well a couple weeks ago, but he ran into some trouble, as his high ERA and WHIP show. The positive: he’s striking guys out at an elite rate. Red Patterson – RHP 8.0 IP. 7.88 ERA, 2.25 WHIP, 3.4 K/9 Patterson started off the AFL great but has been awful in his last five innings. The positive: not much. But it’s just fall ball, so I wouldn’t be overly concerned about him at this point. Chris Reed – LHP 6.1 IP, 9.95 ERA, 2.68 WHIP, 8.5 K/9 Reed’s ERA is finally in the triple-digits, so that’s progress, I suppose. He’s also improved his strikeout rate. Not too hard to improve on zero, though. Andres Santiago – RHP 15.0 IP, 3.60 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, 8.4 K/9 Finally, a good pitcher! Santiago has held his own in the AFL and, despite the higher-than-desired WHIP, he hasn’t allowed a home run in his 15 innings. I’m eager to see what he does in 2013. —– Dominican Winter League Brian Cavazos-Galvez is 3-for-17 (.176). Looks like his Southern League numbers. Tim Federowicz is 2-for-20 (.100) with 11 strikeouts. Ouch. Dee Gordon is 14-for-43 (.326) with three triples in his first 10 DWL games. He’s only drawn two walks in 43 at-bats, though. Luis Vazquez has walked four batters in three innings. —– Venezuelan Winter League Alex Castellanos is 9-for-31 (.290) with two home runs and eight RBI. Luis Nunez is 18-for-72 (.250) with four doubles and nine runs scored. C.J. Retherford is 22-for-73 (.301) with three home runs and five doubles. Scott Van Slyke is 16-for-62 (.258) with seven home runs and 13 RBI. —– Mexican Winter League J.T. Wise is 4-for-17 (.235) with a home run. ===== Dustin Nosler is the founder of the site Feelin’ Kinda Blue. He also co-hosts the weekly podcast Dugout Blues.
