AFL 2019, Week 5: Bret Boswell and Antonio Santos finally break out

New, 8 comments

Arizona Fall League prospect news and updates from October 14-20, 2019

Infielder Bret Boswell has struggled in the Arizona Fall League so far, going 0-for-13 to start the season. However, the tide finally turned for him this week and he went 4-for-19 in five games this week. He started with a two hit game, and he had two single hit games as well. Boswell was drafted in the eighth round of the 2017 draft and made it all the way to Hartford in 2019. He struggled a bit in Hartford, slashing .219/.290/.397 with 15 home runs, but missed time in June and July with two separate stints on the Injured List.

RHP Antonio Santos also seemed to hit his stride this week, posting back-to-back scoreless outings for the first time this AFL season. He also only gave up one hit in each outing, his lowest of the season. This lowered his ERA from 10.80 to start the season down to 3.09. Some of his struggles might be due to bullpen assignments rather than starting for the first time in his career, but hopefully this is a sign that Santos is starting to settle in to his new role for the future.
