O's in the Hawaiian Winter League

Timothy Bascom (RHP): He had a very mediocre year in Frederick in 2008 but so far he's been decent in the HWL. He's had four appearances (all starts). In three of them he has pitched a total of 11 innings with 0 ER, 7 H, 9 K, and 2 BB. In the 4th he only pitched 1.1 inning giving up 7 ER.

Clifford Flagello (RHP):  I've never heard of this dude, but I haven't heard of too many Delmarva Shorebirds. As a reliever he's pitched in 6 games for a total of 8 innings. He's allowed 9 hits and 4 walks in 8 innings, but has somehow only allowed 1 run. He has allowed at least one hit in each of his outings, usually just 1 inning at a time.

Sean Gleason (RHP): Another Shorebird in 2008, Sean has made 4 starts in the HWL. In 18 innings he's given up 15 hits, 10 BB, 4 HR, and 14 ER. Ouch.

Brian Parker (RHP): Brian split time between Delmarva and Frederick this year, pitching as a reliever. In 6 relief appearances in the HWL, Brian has pitched 10.2 innings allowing 9 hits, 6 BB, and 4 ER. He has struck out 8. In 4 of his 6 appearances he allowed 0 runs and, like Tim Bascom, really had one outing that sort of ruins his stats in such a small time frame.

Chris Salberg (LHP): Chris is a left handed starting pitcher who split 2008 with the Ironbirds and Shorebirds. He was a starter for both of those teams but in Hawaii only one of his 8 appearances has been a start. Over 14 innings Chris has allowed 11 hits and 8 walks while striking out 13. He's allowed just one home run and his OBA is .212.

Wally Crancer (C): Wally Crancer is a funny name. Wally spent all of the 2008 season in Delmarva. In Hawaii, Wally pretty much sucks. He's 7 for 37 with an OBP of .268. Ouch! Luckily we don't need to care about some sucky catcher in Delmarva, even if he does have a funny name, because we have WIETERS.

Tyler Henson (3B): Tyler Henson and Tim Bascom are the only players on this list whose names I recognize. Tyler was also in Delmarva this year where he played 127 games and wasn't all that great.  He's doing pretty well in Hawaii, though. His batting average is just .246 (in 65 AB) but thanks to 18 BB and 9 2B his OPS is a decent .820. He only walked 25 times in 127 games in Delmarva and has walked 18 times in 19 games in Hawaii, so who knows what's going on there.

Hawaiian Winter Baseball runs through 15 November, and the players from the O's system are on the West Oahu Cane Fires.
