AFL Week 2: Tyler Nevin shines, Ryan Castellani struggles

New, 3 comments

Arizona Fall League prospect news and updates from October 15-20, 2018

Rockies infield prospect Tyler Nevin (no. 12 PuRP) continues to shine in the Arizona Fall League, recording four more hits in three games this week. He currently is in the middle of a five game hitting streak in five games played thus far. Nevin was a late addition to the AFL roster after Brendan Rodgers was scratched to rest his shoulder this offseason, but so far he has proven that he deserves his roster spot.

Pitching prospect Ryan Castellani (no. 7 PuRP) pitched two quite different games for the Rafters this week. His first on October 15 was a gem — 3 23 innings of no-hit baseball with three walks and two strikeouts. But he struggled in his second appearance and was lifted for Jesus Tinoco (no. 21 PuRP) after giving up four hits and stranding two runners after 1 ⅔ innings. Castellani would eventually be charged with five earned runs after Tinoco gave up back-to-back singles to bring the runners around. Tinoco himself would be charged with three hits and one earned run in 1 13 innings.
