Default 1st quarter organization report - Low A

The hitting star for the Intimidators has been Josh Hansen. He leads the team in HR (10), RBI (34), Runs (21, tie with Berry), and SLG (.568). Nobody else has more than 4 HR (Cook and Kelly) or 16 RBI (Castillo). Delossantos leads the team with a .301 AVE, but has shown no power (0 HR), little speed (1 SB), and sketchy D (11 E, mostly at 3B).
Ricks leads the team in BB (24), giving him a respectible OBP despite a miserable .210 AVE. He's played all over the diamond, including behind the plate.
Castillo and Hernandez have struggled early.

The pitching has been an entirely different matter.
Gonzalez was rested recently but has been pretty dominant (1.37 ERA, 45:11 K:BB in 26.1 IP, .165 BAA).
Liotta is a notch below Gonzales (2.98 ERA, 41:10 K:BB in 48.1 IP, .258 BAA).
Egbert recently was promoted to the rotation, in light of his early success (1.96 ERA, 32:6 K:BB in 41.1 IP, .186 BAA).
Russell is a work in progress but has shown signs of becoming a very good pitcher (3.79 ERA, 23:16 K:BB in 38 IP, .232 BAA).
Harrell and Grant Hansen have struggled a bit thus far.
Zaleski (1.77 ERA, 6 saves, 15:3 K:BB) and Moat (2.05 ERA, 20:5 K:BB) have been effective in relief.

Off topic, but is there something about the hitting background in Kannapolis that really helps the K:BB ratios of pitchers -- particularly lefties? Kanny always seems to have a lefty or two who is tearing it up.

It might say something about the free-swinging nature and inexperience of the hitters at that level. Most of those guys probably have never faced a lefty with stuff like Gio.
