I think it is time to add Clay Schraeder to this list. In his last 6 outings, he has been simply un-hittable. Over those 6 outings, covering 13IP Clay has given up 3 hits, while walking 3 and recording 27K. No, not a typo, 27K in 13IP.

Fastball is solid sitting in the low 90's with some late movement, but the breaking stuff has been just falling off the table. Late and hard break.

Too bad these 6 outings go back over a month. Like to see him worked a little more often.

I'd have Schrader at Frederick ASAP.

Almost Prospects, Part 2: Five more to keep an eye on

I like the "Almost Prospects" list, great picks & great analysis.
A quick glance (through July 30) shows some nice #'s for most of the guys. Of the position guys, it seems Kelly (a mid season All Star) has been the most productive, and as you pointed out, quit the Super-utility guy. I think he's played like 7 positions. Is anyone else that versatile? He kinda reminds me of some other multi position guys in our organization - Blake Davis & Buck Britton. He also reminds me of an ex-big leaguer, Bill Mueller (also a switch hitter with similar size) who was a 3b/2b, hit .291, with nearly equal BB's to K's, and averaged less than 8 hr's/yr in 11 years in the big leagues. Their numbers are very similar.
I'm surprised Kelly hasn't gotten an opportunity in Frederick. Any thoughts?

Schutz in the SAL had amazing #'s. Is the Carolina League that much better? What are your thought their?

I have been waiting for a Kelly promotion for quite some time. It's clear he's figured out the Sally League and needs to be tested at higher levels. He can play multiple positions, but he's just average all around.
