Rays prospects and winter leagues: Hulsizer smashes competition

New, 10 comments

After a long slump, Niko Hulsizer dominated over the weekend in Australia.

I decided to move every player in the Caribbean leagues to the finished section. I think all the leagues are in the postseason now, and the stats are too hard to track at that point.

There was some Twitter buzz Saturday when Rob Friedman tweeted a brief clip of Brent Honeywell throwing at Tropicana Field. I haven’t seen any updates on him this offseason regarding where he is in his recovery process, but this is still a good sign:

After five straight games without a hit, pitchers were lucky if they were able to get Hulsizer out over the weekend.
