Adam Duvall...Can He Hit 40 at Fresno?


Hey All,

Fresno Grizzlies 3B/1B Adam Duvall now has 20 HR through 71 games and 226 ABs. The MiLB season is 142 games, so Fresno is at exactly the halfway mark, although Duvall has missed a dozen of them due to injury.

So the question is whether you think Duvall will become the first 40 HR hitter in the PCL since Dallas McPherson rapped 42 in 448 AB in 2008?

Now, the bad news is that Duvall's 3B defense has regressed a bit, but that may be due to the fact he's split his time this season between 3B and 1B...where he's had a grand total of 63 chances before 2014, 62 of them coming in 7 2013 games.

But hey...this post isn't about Duvall's glove work, it's about his HR swing.

What do you say? Yea or Nay on 40 for Duvall in Fresno?

Hey All,

I'm going to get to SEE Duvall with my own eyeballs this evening, when the Round Rock Express host the Fresno Grizzlies.

Duvall now has 23 HR in 247 AB, with a slash line of .296/.358/.632. He's actually kind of slumping, though, as he's only hit at a .262/.279/.571 pace over his last 10 games. A .571 SLG solves a lot of problems, though....;+)................

Tomorrow, I'll post my impressions of Duvall and the rest of the Grizzlies.

Hey All,

So I got to watch Duvall play against some decent pitching from the Rangers' affiliate last night, and I think he's going to be a workable talent at the MLB level.

Duvall didn't get a HR last night, but he did get a single to drive in a run, and then scored himself, then a double late in the game. He started at 1B.

Duvall isn't just swinging for the fences, which was kind of my concern about him. He has a well-balanced approach at the plate, and doesn't try to do too much with pitchers' pitches. His 3 K in last night's game were all off good sliders/change-ups from relief pitchers with high 90's fastballs.

Duvall isn't a big guy...he also doesn't look like a big fitness guy. He's not dumpy, but he doesn't strike me as someone who spends a lot of time trying to get bigger via the weight room.

He looks a little like all the corner IF/OF prospects the Cardinals bring up, which I count as a good thing.

Hey All,

Adam Duvall was called up today. If he spends any significant time in SF, then hitting 40 for Fresno probably goes out the window...

...and I couldn't be happier about it, as it would mean he has performed for the big club.

Brian Sabean...making injury lemons into MiLB call-up lemonade!

Let's go, Adam! Get you some!
