WATCH LIST UPDATE: MIDSEASON
I last did this on June 16.

Erick Aybar
SS, AA Arkansas

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 325 93 18 6 4 17 34 286 338 415
Then 247 70 13 4 4 13 27 283 342 417
Erick appears to have settled into a rather solid performance.

Alberto Callaspo
2B, AA Arkansas

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 333 100 9 0 9 27 16 300 350 408
Then 252 83 7 0 7 24 13 329 386 440
His hot streak cooled off, and he's reverted back to slap-hitting and punchless. If he can maintain that line as he ascends the system and play a good defense at second, that would be great. The downside? Gary DiSarcina.

Nick Gorneault
OF, AAA Salt Lake

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 304 88 16 8 15 28 74 289 346 543
Then 209 64 14 6 9 22 53 306 368 560
Aside from the homers, all his numbers are down over the past few weeks. Could he be a throw-in in a trade for a starting pitcher?

Howie Kendrick
2B, A Rancho Cucamonga

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 257 95 21 5 11 14 39 370 409 619
Then 177 66 11 4 9 9 30 373 406 633
Coming off a DL stint for a strained oblique, Kendrick responds by -- ho-hum -- continuing to hit .370.

Baltasar Lopez
1B, A Rancho Cucamonga

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Then 151 38 9 0 0 16 44 252 320 311
He's been injured. From the drug suspension forward, it's been a half-year to forget for a guy who has a lot of people ahead of him on the organizational depth chart.

Warner Madrigal
OF, A Cedar Rapids

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 251 57 12 1 11 15 60 227 274 414
Then 186 41 8 0 9 9 45 220 261 409
Well, the strikeout-to-walk ratio has improved. A little.

Jeff Mathis
C, AAA Salt Lake

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 261 74 19 2 12 27 58 284 351 510
Then 178 48 13 2 8 19 36 270 340 500
A nice little bounceback from the future backstop.

Kendry Morales
1B, AA Arkansas

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 82 21 5 0 4 5 15 256 299 463
Then 11 0 0 0 0 1 3 000 083 000
One you take off that 0-11 start, you see some delicious numbers: 296/342/535.

Morales played in the Futures Game Sunday afternoon. He went 1-2; I missed his second at-bat, a flyout, but in his first at-bat he took a thigh-high fastball on the outside corner from Justin Verlander and dispatched it posthaste to the left-center gap. It was a nice bit of hitting off of what is, by definition, a major-league fastball (Verlander was hitting 95 and above in his inning of work).

Kendry was a bit stockier than I had realized from photos and other clips I've seen -- Bob Starr would undoubtedly refer to him as a "burly fellow." He looks a lot more like a first baseman than a left fielder, just making a really silly conclucion from his body type. He looked comfortable around the bag at first (on the plays I saw), though he wasn't really challenged at any point; the one hop he had to pick out of the dirt was a long hop, so no real problem there.

Mike Napoli
C/1B, AA Arkansas

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 262 69 17 1 16 59 85 263 404 519
Then 206 61 16 1 11 44 64 296 427 544
I think 8-56 qualifies as a slump -- though five of those eight hits went over the fence. Still solid numbers overall. With Mathis heating up ahead of him, is Napoli potential trade bait? Or the next Shawn Wooten?

Sean Rodriguez
SS, A Cedar Rapids

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 268 71 17 3 5 48 48 265 389 407
Then 213 57 13 3 3 42 35 268 402 399
He had been bringing that average up after a slow start, though he's leveled off for a few weeks, as you can see. Brandon Wood obviously started the season just a bit ahead of S-Rod on the depth chart, and has just obviously taken a humongous leap this season. But Rodriguez is still quite young, so it's definitely not panic time -- especially with his plate discipline and the possibility that Wood gets moved off of the position.

Drew Toussaint
2B/OF, A Cedar Rapids

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 233 67 17 2 12 28 71 288 368 532
Then 155 44 13 1 7 21 46 284 376 516
Toussaint may be on his way to becoming my favorite prospect that no one's ever heard of. I don't know anything about his defense, but that's solid production for a guy in his first full professional season.

NEW ADDITION!
Mark Trumbo
1B, R Orem

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 78 23 10 0 2 5 22 295 337 500
The Angels performed a great public good by keeping Trumbo out of U$C. Will he repay the Angels with good play? The strikeouts are scary, but otherwise this is a good start; remember, it his his first exposure to pro ball and wooden bats.

Reggie Willits
OF, AA Arkansas

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 285 88 16 4 0 39 38 309 390 393
Then 209 66 11 4 0 28 28 316 391 407
Nothing has changed.

Brandon Wood
SS, A Rancho Cucamonga

When?  AB   H   2B   3B   HR   BB   SO   AVG  OBP  SLG
Now 338 100 28 3 28 30 74 296 357 645
Then 261 82 23 2 21 20 59 314 365 659
A tiny bit of a slump, but he's drawing more walks as he gains further respect from Cal League pitchers.

Wood was the other Angel to play in the Futures Game. He was 1-1 on an infield single up the middle -- he was actually out at first, it looked from the replays, but the ump (apparently) thought the first baseman had come off the bag.

Wood's a lanky kid. He's listed at 6'3''-185, which seems roughly correct. He still has a lot of filling out to do, and if this is his power now ... watch out.

Wood allowed an infield single on a slow chopper with a fast runner, but looked pretty smooth defensively. His arm was impressive; it seems like if he gets moved off of short third base would be his destination, though I know some might salivate at the potential for a Jeff Kent on the keystone. He has enough development in front of him that these questions don't have to be resolved for a few more seasons.

NEW ADDITION!
Nick Adenhart
SP, Arizona League

When?   W   L   SV   G  GS    IP    H   HR   SO   BB   ERA
Now 0 0 0 4 4 8.7 5 0 9 9 1.04
Adenhart is coming back from Tommy John surgery, so this is his first competitive pitching in awhile. That brief line is indicative of good stuff but lackluster command, which is to be expected from someone coming back from an injury.

Steve Andrade
RP, AA New Hampshire (Blue Jays org)

When?   W   L   SV   G  GS    IP    H   HR   SO   BB   ERA
Now 1 2 1 16 0 22.7 9 1 28 10 2.78
Then 1 2 1 13 0 19.0 6 0 22 7 1.89
Our boy hit a rough patch coming off the DL, but he's still way too good for AA. FREE STEVE ANDRADE!

Daniel Davidson
SP, AA Arkansas

When?   W   L   SV   G  GS    IP    H   HR   SO   BB   ERA
Now 7 4 0 18 16 97.0 110 11 63 31 4.64
Then 5 3 0 13 12 71.3 44 7 51 22 4.54
The hits just keep on coming. (Obviously, the "44" I had before was a typo.)

Abel Moreno
Has not played.

Steve Shell
SP, AA Arkansas

When?   W   L   SV   G  GS    IP    H   HR   SO   BB   ERA
Now 5 6 0 17 17 93.7 105 16 72 39 5.00
Then 3 4 0 13 13 70.7 81 12 54 30 4.84
The vaunted Arkansas rotation has really had some problems since the promotion of Santana.

Von Stertzbach
RP, AA Arkansas

When?   W   L   SV   G  GS    IP    H   HR   SO   BB   ERA
Now 3 4 10 36 0 41.3 45 6 39 21 4.79
Then 3 3 8 28 0 31.3 36 4 27 16 4.60
The Travelers are just having problems with that hill in the middle of the infield.

NEW ADDITION!
Jered Weaver
SP, A Rancho Cucamonga

When?   W   L   SV   G  GS    IP    H   HR   SO   BB   ERA
Now 2 1 0 5 5 20.0 21 3 28 4 5.85
He had the one really rough outing, but, aside from that, seems to be getting things in order. That SO:BB ratio is marvelous.

Bob Zimmerman
RP, A Rancho Cucamonga

When?  W   L   SV   G  GS    IP    H   HR   SO   BB   ERA
Now 4 7 7 29 0 33.0 34 2 41 17 4.36
Then 3 6 6 23 0 26.0 27 2 32 16 4.50
So at least one pitcher on this list has been doing well of late.

Comments:
Zim looked pretty shaky the night that Weaver died, but the announcer in the booth next to me (didn't catch his name, pity) said Zimmerman had been recently converted back to relief after an abortive shot at starting. BTW, Weaver's first two games were bad. (I actually remembered his third game was bad, but I guess not.
