Thursday, March 28, 2002

We ended our Spring Training schedule today with a 5 to 4 loss at the Padres' Training Complex. We finished with 12 wins and 18 losses. Worse than last year's 14-16. Washington had the best Spring record at 21-9. Cincinnati and Baltimore brought up the rear at 10-20. We did not have the worst record in our division; that belonged to the defending PCL Champions, the Los Angeles Angels, who went 11-19.

Two players were hurt, who we were planing on having on our roster: SP Roger Lerer (28-L), who pitched well this Spring, and rookie RP Roy Huls (21-R). Huls will only be out a week. Lerer will be out until May, when he will just get hurt again...

Next up: Meet the Beavers!

Shannon Kuchta
24 year old second baseman who bats and throws right-handed from Mt. Rainier, Maryland (a suburb of Washington, DC). 6' 2" 200 lbs. (+9) We hope that was 9 lbs. of muscle he added. $50,00. Acquired in a trade with Boston in January, 2001. He was selected in the 2nd round of that year's B Leagues Draft. Below average range and an arm that excludes him from playing on the left side of the diamond, but has good hands. Can also play 1st and left field. Decent runner, but not a base stealer and not very smart on the base paths. A very hard worker. Hit .292 with an .625 OPS this Spring.

2001 (A): .290/.353/.356 in 303 AB with 4 HR and 31 RBI and 15 SB for Providence (6 G) and Vancouver (99 G)

Rich Cruz
30 year old shortstop who bats and throws right-handed from Santiago, the Dominican Republic. 6' 4" 220 lbs. $50,000. Acquired in a trade with Seattle in January. Almost a clone of Risinger as a fielder, though I guess Risinger is a clone of him, since Cruz is older. Can play excellent defense anywhere in the infield. He is a hard worker and a bundle of energy, but not too bright. A smart fellow who was 6' 4", 220 lbs and athletic as Cruz would figure out how to hit the ball hard... A good runner and will steal a base occasionally. A good bunter. Hit .279 with a .621 OPS this Spring.
2000 (A): .247/.313/.348 in 462 AB with 3 HR and 52 RBI and 11 SB for Tacoma

Outfielders
Kim Springer

21 year old left fielder who bats and throws left-handed from North Westport, Massachusetts (12 miles southwest of Fall River). 6' 5" 196 lbs. Rookie. Selected in the 1st round (5th overall) in this year's B Leagues Draft. Adequate fielder and runner, but will steal a base. Easy to get along with. We expect him to hit a lot of home runs once he files out his 6' 5" frame. Bit of a string bean right now. Hit .290 with 6 2B in 31 AB and an .862 OPS this Spring. Missed a week or so with back spasms. He will start versus right-handers to begin the season and hopefully end up playing everyday by the end of the year.

Don Neumann
32 year old left fielder who bats from both sides of the plate and throws right-handed from Brooklyn, New York. 6' 3" 226 lbs. (+8) $110,000. Acquired in a trade with Pittsburgh in January, 2001. His added weight has lowered his already below average range. He has a decent arm. Can play right field. Decent runner and will steal bases and is aggressive on the base paths. Gives an honest effort everyday. Hit .314 with 1 HR and an .804 OPS this Spring. He will begin the season as the starter versus left-handed pitchers.
2001 (MLB): .231/.307/.377 in 355 AB with 11 HR and 42 RBI and 3 SB for Portland

Brian Mitchell
20 year old (21 on April 9) center fielder who bats and throws left-handed from Detroit, Michigan. 5' 10" 169 lbs. (+2) Rookie. Selected in the 4th round of the 2001 B Leagues draft. Good range and a superior arm. Very hard worker. Very fast and will steal bases, but only if he can get on base. Good bunter. Hit .346 with an .818 OPS this Spring, winning a spot on the starting lineup versus right-handers. He tweaked his back diving for a ball and will have to sit for a dew days to begin the season.
2001 (MLB): .216/.259/.216 in 51 AB with 0 HR and 2 RBI and 2 SB in his 1st season for Portland
2001 (A): .290/.355/.349 in 490 AB with 0 HR and 38 RBI and 20 SB for Vancouver

Good Range and a very good arm. Very hard worker. Very fast and will steal a base. A good bunter. Hit .271 with a .751 OPS this Spring. After Mitchell's back is ready, he will start versus left-handers, but will end up playing everyday if Mitchell cannot cut it.
2001 (MLB): .250/.315/.329 in 516 AB with 2 HR and 39 RBI and 26 SB for Portland

Jose Julio
28 year old right fielder who bats and throws right-handed from Caracas, Venezuela (the same hometown as P Frank Flores). 6' 1" 191 lbs. $50,000. Acquired in a trade with Salt Lake City in December.

Soft spoken individual, but easy to get along with. HIt .185 with a .437 OPS this Spring, but missed 3 weeks with back spasms.
2001 (MLB): .310/356/402 in 174 AB with 3 HR and 25 RBI and 13 SB as a rookie for Salt Lake City

A very good bunter. Has a good move to first, but is a below average fielder. Was 1-2 with a 1.86 ERA this Spring, with only 13 H in 19.1 IP with 0 HR, until shoulder tendinitis put him out of action.

Was 2-1 with an 0.77 ERA in 11.2 IP with 14 SO, before going down with injury. He was diagnosed with acromioclavicular joint irritation, which means he has a sore shoulder and needs to rest s few days. He should be ready to go by the weekend and depending how everyone else in out Bullpen is doing at the time, will determine whether he joins the Beavers or joins the Mounties in Vancouver.

Prospects ranked by Baseball America in the top 200:
LF Kim Springer (#2)
See the Opening Day Roster above

RF Paul Moreland (#3)
20 year old (21 on April 13) right fielder who throws and bats left-handed from Riverside, California (in the Inland Empire region). 6' 2" 177 lbs. Rookie. Selected in the 3rd round of this year's B Leagues draft. Not a bad pick to get the #3 prospect with! The #1 prospect is P Mike McLane (24-R), who was the #1 prospect last year, but only pitched 3 innings for Sacramento. He's already hurt again this season and is out until August, so we really have the top 2 prospects in Baseball! In a couple of years, we are going to have a regular Murderer's Row with these two kids along with Mexicano and Snowden! (finger's crossed against injuries) He has good rang and strong arm. He is an average runner and will steal an occasional base. He hit .250 with a .568 OPS this Spring. He needs to learn to let a pitch go by every once in a while...
2001 (B): .272/.294/.425 in 600 AB with 11 HR and 72 RBI and 7 SB for Birmingham

Editor's Note: Well, I said immediately after the draft, that I was pleased with our haul of prospects, even though I did not get either of the two players I had earmarked for our first pick. But after Baseball America has ranked 4 of our picks as top 10 prospects, I am blown away! How very fortunate!

Jim Jaeger grounds one back to the mound for a game-ending double play, but P Frank Flores throws the ball into the dirt at 2nd, and everyone is safe... Al Lawson, to tie the game now with a home run.... He hit a double earlier. He strikes out! 2 down. Jeff Parrish, the All-Star, lines one hard to center, but Brian Mitchell is there and THIS Ball Game Belongs to the Beavers!!!!

Won - 3 to 0

A shutout for Frank Flores in his Major League debut!!

Frank Flores (W 1-0), in his Major League debut, went 9 shutout innings (CG), allowed 3 hits, 2 walks and struck out 3. At bat, he had 2 hits and a walk, scored a run and had an RBI.

Around the League:
The Milwaukee Brewers have hit 12 home runs in their first four games, even though last year's league leader, SS Greg Hobbs (28-R), who hit 46, is on the Disabled List. They do not expect him to make his season debut for another week.

We are in Sacramento to play the Solons a 3 game series over the weekend. They just split 4 games with the Brewers in Milwaukee. We were 9-5 against them last season, the most wins we had against any team. They are currently 8th in scoring in the PCL with 3.80 per game (Portland is 9th with 3.60). Both of those figures would have been good for last place last season. The PCL ERA so far this year is 3.35 and was 3.92 last year. The Solons are tied for 1st in fewest runs allowed with 2.70 per game (Portland is 12th with 4.20). The Solons are last in strikeouts by their pitchers. We are 2nd best.

Portland Beavers (4-6 .400 2 GB in 7th place in the PCL West) at

POR: Bobby Johnson (22-R 0-0 1.84) vs. SAC: Juan Sanchez (27-R 0-1 4.26)

We have won both of Johnson's starts so far, but did not score early enough to get him a win.

We beat Sanchez 4 times last year, but he beat us in his 5th try, on the final day of the season.

3B Duffy Bowermaster (29-L) has been sent to Vancouver (A) and C Rick Mansoor (28-R) has been called up. This is only because of the injury to C Jim Shippy (31-R) and not because we are unhappy with Bowermaster. Duffy will be back at the first opportunity.

Jack Hinckley is feeling ill....

We are in Seattle to play a short 2 game series. The Rainiers lost 2 of 3 here to the Padres over the weekend. We were 5-9 against them last season. Seattle is 8th in the PCL in scoring with 4.00 runs per game (Portland is 9th with 3.92). They are tied for last in fewest runs allowed with 5.23 per game (Portland is tied for 5th with 3.54). Since we lead all of Baseball with 15 errors, our team ERA is 2nd best in the PCL at 2.83!

Portland Beavers (7-6 .538 1 GB in 4th place in the PCL West) at
Seattle Rainiers (4-9 .308 4 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West)

POR: Frank Flores (22-R 2-0 0.53) Rookie vs. SEA: Marty Becker (36-L 0-2 10.61)

Flores had allowed 5 hits in 17 IP to start his Major League career. He currently leads the PCL in ERA! We have no illusions of that staying that way.

Becker was 0-2 in 3 starts against us last year, but pitched well twice.
