2010 Overview


What happened?

Ordosgoitti is one to keep an eye on, even after only five starts in the GCL. Signed as an international free agent back in 2009, Ordosgoitti went straight to the GCL, skipping the DSL (probably because he's from Venezeula, anyway). Ordosgoitti was 0-1 on the year.

What went right?

We kind of hate doing these due to the sample size, but it at least puts him in the archive. However, home games were a major positive, and it's where he made four of his five starts, compiling a 2.29 ERA on 27H/7ER, 15K:4BB.

His first two starts. In 9.2IP to begin his pro career, Ordosgoitti allowed 12H/1ER, with 8K:2BB.

What went wrong?

Bases empty. Ordosgoitti's WHIP with runners on: 1.38. WHIP with the bases empty: 1.64. Four of his five walks and his one homer came with the bases empty. Obviously, it's much more preferable to do this with the bases empty than with runners on.

He didn't pitch after July 18 - and we can't find why. If it was on purpose, and they're easing him in, that's fine. It doesn't look like he was injured.

Ordosgoitti will be 18 when the season ends next year (Late September birthday), so Greeneville is a likely destination for him in 2011.
