AFL Update : Quick stats on A's prospects in the AFL

You can read the article from the A's website here. The quick stats are below :

1B Daric Barton -- Barton went 6-for-20 (.300) with a double, a homer, five
RBIs and eight runs scored. The former first-round draft pick also showed
impressive plate discipline, drawing a team-high six walks.

OF Andre Ethier -- Ethier continued to mash the ball after winning MVP
honors in the Texas League. The former second-round draft pick went 9-for-23
(.391) with three doubles, a triple, a homer, six RBIs and a .739 slugging

RHP Shawn Kohn -- The 25-year-old right-hander compiled a 12.00 ERA in
three innings of relief, surrendering four runs on six hits while walking one
and striking out three.

LHP Matt Lynch -- Lynch went 1-0 with an 8.31 ERA in 4 1/3 innings out of
the bullpen. The 24-year-old Florida native allowed five runs -- four earned --
on seven hits and three walks while striking out three.

C Kurt Suzuki -- Suzuki hit .333 (3-for-9) with a double, five RBIs, three
walks and a .462 on-base percentage. The highlight of his week was a four-RBI
effort on Oct. 11 against the Peoria Saguaros.

Daric Barton is just Mr. Consistent, continuing to hit the ball well and drawing walks. Kurt Suzuki seems to be doing great and I think he could easily leapfrog over Jeremy Brown in the minor league depth chart. Expect to see him in an A's uniform within the next 1-2 seasons. I really like Andre Ethier, let's hope he continues his hot hitting into next year, if he keeps up this pace he could find himself on a major league roster soon.
