Nori Aoki leads home-run parade with grand slam as Royals rout Diamondbacks 12-2

In his first 85 games as a Royal, Nori Aoki interspersed patches of success with spates of disappointments and moments of slapstick. He fielded a foul ball with his groin. He swung at a pitch that hit him. He disappointed team officials with his defense, lost his spot at the top of the batting order and only recently regained his place there. During these tumultuous four months...

D-backs prospect Schultz nearing majors on unique track

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- When Bo Schultz signed with the independent league Grand Prairie AirHogs -- based just outside Dallas -- he did so with the belief it was his last hurrah as an athlete. "I thought that was going to be the end of baseball," Schultz said. It was 2011 and Schultz had been released by the Oakland A's after a rough start with Single-A Stockton. Schultz...

Arizona Diamondbacks promote Northwestern grad Bo Schultz

Thanksgiving dinner is likely to seem especially tasty for onetime American Association hurler Bo Schultz since news arrived Wednesday that he had been added to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 40-man roster after a strong showing in the Arizona Fall League. The 28-year-old righty and Northwestern journalism grad, who was mostly a bullpen contributor (4-3, 4.13 in 37 appearances) while...

The author has published each of the last four weeks (One, Two, Three, Four), in these pages, a statistical report on the Arizona Fall League not necessarily because such a thing is of great utility to prospect analysis, but more because, for those of us not currently present in the Greater Phoenix area, it’s one of the few ways to participate in that very compelling league. ...

Entirely Premature Statistical Report on the Arizona Fall League

It is “factually” “true” both that (a) the Arizona Fall League only just commenced yesterday and also that (b) AFL performances, even after having been regressed and adjusted for environment, are of questionable utility so far as evaluating prospects is concerned. (See, for example, Mike Trout‘s performance there in 2011.) That said, for those of us not currently present...

Arizona Diamondbacks give tryout to Northwestern Medill graduate

I became intrigued with Bo Schultz some time back, not entirely for his baseball talent because it was said he was not a major league prospect, but largely in that he came out of the prestigious Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern and was likely to become a baseball journalist.  It seemed writing might take center stage sooner rather than later because of his projected level...
