Arizona Fall League Update: Robles Bests the Best
Hansel Robles pitched for the Scottsdale Scorpions today and gave up four hits while striking out one while keeping the league-best Mesa Solar Sox scoreless in four innings. Chasen Bradford pitched one scoreless inning, giving up one hit in the 8th. No other Mets played today for the Scorpions.

As you can plainly see about our hitters: They are all struggling. Vaughn has done the best hitting 3 of his 9 hits for extra bases, but his nature to strike out has been exposed. Aderlin Rodriguez has been struggling, mostly to make contact, and hasn’t drawn a single walk. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt because he shaking off the cobwebs after missing half the year while facing against elite competition. Cam Maron has proven his tool of plate discipline drawing almost three times as many walks as he has struck out. There is obviously need for improvement, which will happen as our players adjust to the league.
On the center of the diamond, pitching has been mostly thriving. Hansel Robles has been steadily improving from letting two runs in his first appearance over an inning, to letting one run in 3 innings the following start, and then pitching spectacularly in his third start. Chasen Bradford has proved why he was sent to the AFL, tossing up zeroes in all five and a third innings, as has Cody Satterwhite. Jeurys Familia has been struggling since his first appearance to get himself back together after having surgery during the season. He has the chance to turn it around however.
Look for more updates during the next few weeks, and an interesting tool to use to keep track of the Met’s players in the winter leagues by clicking here.
