Fraley did some damage versus lefties in this one:

Fraley was far from done:

No. 18 Carter Bins, C
FRI: 0-1, 3 BB, SO
2019: 8-31, 2 HR, 10 BB, 12 SO.


No. 24 Austin Shenton, 3B
FRI: DNP
2019: 12-for-35, 2-2B, 2 BB, 8 SO

Shenton was removed after a diving play in the fourth inning Tuesday and hasn’t played since.

2019: 60.1 IP, 76 H, 24 BB, 52 SO

UR Kelvin Nunez, RHP
FRI: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 2 SO
2019: 15.1 IP, 16 H, 5 ER, 5 BB, 11 SO

The 19-year-old Nunez is very interesting. He’s about 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, but the arm action is easy and there’s natural sink to the fastball. He could end up being a ground ball rotation candidate.


UR Robert Perez, 1B
FRI: 1-5, 2 SO
2019: .219/.298/.404, 4-2B, 3B, 4 HR, 12 RBI, 8 BB, 37 SO

Arizona Mariners (R) — Arizona Rookie League

No. 19 Juan Querecuto, SS
FRI: DNP
2019: 1-11, 3 BB, 5 SO


No. 23 Levi Stoudt, RHS
FRI: DNP
2019:


No. 13 Isaiah Campbell, RHS
FRI: DNP
2019:

In 18 starts for Arkansas, the right-hander went 12-1 with a 2.13 ERA. He rung up 125 strikeouts versus 22 walks in 118 1/3 innings of work.

I’d be surprised if he throws more than a few innings somewhere this summer — which was the plan for Logan Gilbert last summer before he became ill. It’s entirely plausible Campbell will not make his pro debut until next spring.


No. 29 Brayan Perez, LHS
FRI: DNP
2019: 15 IP, 13 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 11 SO


No. 31 Ty Adcock, RHR
FRI: DNP
2019:


No. 33 Adam Macko, LHS
FRI: DNP
2019:


UR Tyler Driver, RHP
FRI: DNP
2019: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO

The Mariners’ 18th-round pick pitched well in his pro debut and despite the stat line, was again impressive in start No. 2.


UR Danny Chang, LHP
FRI: DNP
2019: 8 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, BB, 15 SO


UR Blake Townsend, LHP
FRI: DNP
2019: 5.1 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 0 BB, 8 SO


UR Luis Veloz, OF
FRI: 2-4
2019: 2-12, 7 BB, 2 SO

There’s leverage to be had and enough bat speed to projected big-league power. He may have the best strike zone judgment in the Arizona League and at 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds there’s physical projection on which to dream.


UR Edwin Gil, 3B
FRI: 1-5, 2B, 2 SO
2019: 17-64, 7-2B, 3B, 2 HR, 10 RBI, 2 BB, 22 SO

Gil will be 20 in July and is an under-the-radar player that’s producing with the bat in Arizona after six games in the DSL. He already has seven doubles in 15 games combined at both spots and hit homers Wednesday and Thursday.


DSL Mariners (R)

No. 8 Noelvi Marte, SS
FRI: DNP
2019: .321/.371/.513, 4-2B, 2-3B, 2 HR, 13 RBI, 8 BB, 19 SO, 6 SB

Marte has had some defensive issue at shortstop — rushing transfers and throws — but he’s the best combo of impact speed and raw power in the system.

Marte will not be 18 until October, so like with Julio Rodriguez last year Marte is on pace to hit the states for full-season ball in 2020.


UR Ortwin Pieternella, C
FRI: 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, BB
2019: .316/.480/.526, 3-2B, 3B, HR, 8 RBI, 12 BB, 7 SO, 3 SB

I know very little about Pieternella, but he’s 20 years old, a catcher, and has one of the more intriguing 14-game stat lines in the DSL.

Not only does the slash look good (small sample, yes), but he has 12 walks against seven strikeouts, plus three stolen bases and a triple. My second question to Lat Am scouts will be: Can he run, too?
