2021 Affiliate Record Tracker (by Organization)

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2021 Affiliate Record Tracker by Organization. Over the past few years I have started and updated a discussion thread with this info & will try again this year. Again, I will only report on FULL SEASON minor league teams (A thru AAA). That way there is a consistent measurement of 4 affiliates for each organization.

While winning is secondary to developing players in the minors, winning is important in its own right as it develops a culture of success, helps to focus players and hopefully produce post-season appearances in the minors (which results in more learning opportunities & development of the players).

For this report I will list all 30 teams. In the future I will narrow the reporting (top 10, bottom 5, noting teams in the division if not already listed).  Updates with be bi-weekly thru the end of May before switching to weekly sometime in June thru the end of the season.

Here is the 1st report (with games ending 5/9/21). Enjoy

I somewhat expected Lynchburg to do well because they had a lot of talent that would have been shunted to EST and eventually Mahoning Valley under the old system. They're a deeply talented team all over except for maybe the outfield. I definitely did not expect them to hit this well, Meisel wrote up a column about how they've changed some things about how they approach developing hitters. Maybe this is early signs the change is working?

I did *not* expect Lake County to jump out like this. Their most talented players are way young for the level. You would think that would mean growing pains, but not so far. 

Akron is also a surprise to me. One guy I'm curious to see more of is Eli Lingos, who filled in for an injured Cantillo. In 8 IP over two starts, he's got 9 Ks, 2 BBs, just one run. For a guy who wasn't really a starter before this and has never been a notable prospect, it would be hard to boot him out of the rotation on this good run.

Baseball America posted an article today 5/18/21 (appears to be free content) regarding minor league organizations & individual teams
Linking it here so people can review it.

https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/mariners-top-milb-overall-standings-nationals-bring-up-the-rear/

 

They even noted runs scored/ runs against/ run differential for each organization & each team individually on their charts.

Enjoy...
