I'm hearing that Double-A will be using the Triple-A ball this year. Unless MLB changes the baseball construction, expect a huge boost in homers at Double-A in 2020. Korea went in the opposite direction last year, going to a "dead ball". Homers were down, off the top-of-my head over 40% from the prior year. What was interesting was the time per game also dropped, and I believe it was around ten minutes per game. Maybe Manfred doesn't need to tinker with relief pitching to get his desired results?

"Huge step forward" is an understatement. We are showing what he did in Double A in 2018. I don't know why we haven't scooped up his stats in Triple A this year but here they are: .334/.429/.520  in 344 AB; 12 stolen bases in 17 tries.

Rotowire slots him at No. 7 among Padres prospects -- not bad, considering he's not on the top 15 list of Rays prospects in last year's 2019 Minor League Analyst.

But how do front offices adjust for the baseball that was used in Triple A this year? That's the question.

Fangraphs review of Pham/Renfroe trade

Cronenworth, the second part of the Padres’ return, bears more explanation.  He’s a 25-year old shortstop with enough glove to stick there, with the arm and fielding motions to handle any position across the infield in at least a utility role. His real appeal is with the bat, where he took a huge step forward in 2019.

Jake Cronenworth, up from the depth and headed to the Padres.
