    Confidan must have really strong hands and wrists. His first homer seemed like he just flicked his wrists

  2. Michael Wilson

    Looks like he likes the ball down in the ol’ wheelhouse. Wonder how he does on the balls up in the zone?

  3. Jonathan

    is Sammy Stafura stock raising? Fangraphs was very low on him. The walk rate is really good and nice to see the pitch recognition this young

    • Michael Wilson

      Has had a couple of four hit games, walks almost equal strikeouts, OBP pushing .500. It’s early but he seems ready for a bigger challenge.

  4. The Duke

    Sal Stewart has 25 walks in 33 games, compared to only 24 strikeouts. The raw power is there, he just needs to be a little more Sally Long Balls and a little less Sally Singles without sacrificing that excellent plate discipline. If he does, watch out, his plate discipline is Votto-esque.

  5. Laredo Slider

    Glad to see success for Confidan, good prospect.

    Timpanelli with a High A save.

    • Mauired

      He’s only 21. So he’s got time to breakout. What’s the average age for low A ball?

      • Doug Gray

        The average age of a hitter in the FSL right now is 21.0. Confidan is 21.5.

  6. Mauired

    Daytona for the second year in a row has a loaded offense. Cabrera, Duno, Almonte, Pitelli, Confidan are all legit prospects. I thought Pineda was going to be part of this group but unfortunately he’s taken a big step back but plenty of time for him to get hot too.
