Garrett Mitchell makes his first start since August 27th, stolen base king David Hamilton now has 51 on the season and Noah Zavolas strives to keep his good form going (2.76 ERA in last 32.2 innings with 31 Ks), as they Shuckers try to make it three victories in a row:

 

1 - Hamilton - SS

2 - Howell - LF

3 - Mitchell - CF

4 - Palma - DH

5 - Longo - RF

6 - Dillard - 1B

7 - Devanney - 2B

8 - Cantrelle - 3B

9 - Rios - C

X - Zavolas - P

Good start for Zavolas…..Mitchell 0-3 with 3 ks

 

I drove an hour to watch this game primarily to see Mitchell and he was terrible. Looked like he had a hole in his swing and broke the wrong way on a ball to center that dropped in front of him. At some point my wife asked if he was really the reason we drove out :) Although I should add that I love that Pensacola stadium and it was a good time.

Unfortunately, this seems to essentially be turning into a wasted year for Mitchell. He had a really interesting Spring Training. Then the injuries. A promotion but he's never gotten anything going. The hole is his swing comment is a tad worrisome given Keston's might struggles of late. I sure hope he regains his form.

Zavolas has really had a nice past couple of months after a slow start. He's gone at least 6 innings in 11 of his last 12 starts, and 7 innings in 5 of them.

 

Hiura's last six games: 0-21 with 12 K's. Whatever the plan is at this point, it's not working.

 

I don't get it. Before when he was scuffling at the MLB level, he would at least go down to Nashville and rip it up. Now he can't touch a ball in Nashville either. Dude is broken.

 

I don't know what the answer is, but continuing to send him out there to fail in AAA games surely isn't going to do anything for his confidence level. It is far past time to simply chalk up this season as a loss for Hiura, and move on to preparing for 2022.

Garrett got it going to the tune of a 359/508/620 triple slash at Wisconsin with 12/1 SB/CS.

 

Sure, the injuries are frustrating, but even making it to AA (where he is 2.5 years younger than the average player) in his first pro season is a pretty significant accomplishment.

 

MLB had Mitchell at #65 & BA had him at #91 entering the season. I would guess he ends up in the same range entering 2022, so more of a hold serve season than a wasted one.

Joey Weimer was another young hitter who many predetermined to "have a hole in his swing." As he's proven so far, that can be corrected. Hopefully Mitchell can finish with a flourish and head into 2022 on the right foot. An Arizona Fall League assignment may not be a terrible idea as well, especially considering all the time he's missed with injuries this year.

I'm worried about Mitchell's inability to actually be on the field more than his lack of production on the field. He raked in Appleton earlier in the year and has definitely struggled at the plate in Biloxi, but the guy just hasn't been able to stay healthy enough during his time in AA to really make too much of a judgement.

To tell you the truth, that was one issue I was worried about with Mitchell, considering he's a Type 1 diabetic. I'm a type 1 myself, and one of the side effects for many, unfortunately, is taking longer than normal-bodied people to recover from soft-tissue injuries, typically because Type 1s, even when well controlled, don't have the blood circulation of a normal person. I dealt with my share of nagging stuff when I was an athlete in high school and college, and recovering from them was always an extra challenge. Granted that was 20+ years ago, so I would hope that things have improved on the athletic training front to counteract that.
