Wrapping up the Spring

M’s finished Cactus League play at 16-9, second place behind the A’s

from my AZ trip last year

Their offensive percentages were pretty impressive ~ M’s rankings for all of MLB this spring…
~1st in BA
~1st in OBP
~1st in OPS
~2nd in SLG

The actual number of runs, hits, doubles triples and homers wasn’t too impressive, but…
the fact that they played about 7-8 games less than most teams contributed to that

Then there was the pitching …
a scattering of good individual performances but, short of Felix, needs a little polishing

Individuals that shone in the springtime sun (rankings includ Cactus AND Grapefruit Leagues)…
~Kawasaki 1st in BA .455
~Kawasaki 2nd in OBP .489
~Seager and Ichiro 8th and 10th respectively in OPS (1.116, 1.113)
~Liddi was named the Peoria Sports Complex Rookie of the Year
~Montero, Kawasaki and Peguero tied for the team lead in RBI (13)
~Felix 4th in WHIP 0.86

As for the M*A*S*H unit…
~Adam Moore went 0/3 with Tacoma in his first game action since rehabbing his wrist
~Carp and Guti are continuing their rehab in Arizona and appear to be on schedule
