He may end up being the steal of the draft. Very impressive. ked29 August 12, 2018 He reminds me of Alberta Almora, hits for avg. scores runs and strong defense Norwood Nate August 12, 2018 I googled FSL HR record. It appears two players have hit 33 HRs in a season in the FSL. Edward Levy did it in 1951 and James Fuller did it in 1971. Isabel now has 29 in the FSL. It’ll be an interesting August to see if he will approach that number. Certainly doable for a guy with Isabel’s power. SteveLV August 12, 2018 Anyone have thoughts on whether Isabel is a prospect to watch? Strikes out “too much” but that doesn’t seem disqualifying with his power. Walk rate and OBP look ok. How is he at first base? Realize the ultimate answer comes when he moves up to AA next year. Joe August 12, 2018 I think if he can repeat wat he doing this yr next yr in aa then I think he’ll b a good prospect to watch even with th Ks. He has to be a legit 70 on power scale I would say Doug Gray August 12, 2018 He’s certainly a guy to watch, but he’s also a guy who has a massive amount of work to do, too. The power is literally top of the scale. It’s a rare, rare thing. But, he’s also striking out 36% of the time he steps to the plate in A-ball. That’s got to come down. Way, way down. MK August 12, 2018 For all those here who have been calling for the release of Mitch Piatnik, you got your wish today. All I can say about him is I never saw him give less than 100%, like many others before him he just didn’t hit enough. Cooooop August 12, 2018 Anyone know why Mustangs SS Rivero was tossed in the 8th… in the field? I was listening online in Cali then lost it in the 8th. Wonder why he lost it! LOL.
