Since he is part of Most Glorious el Beisbol Cardinals, I will get more regular updates than I would otherwise. So far, so good:
— Andrew Knizner (Rd. 7, #216), the catcher prospect from NC State, has gotten off to a solid start at Johnson City, the lower-level short-season affiliate for the Redbirds. He’s put up a .269/.402/.388 line so far, with an 8.5% walk rate and very manageable strikeouts. (15.9% K rate) Weird part of his line: he’s been hit by eight pitches already in just 82 plate appearances, so getting on base via the Craig Biggio Lean-In appears to potentially be part of Knizner’s game. The Cardinals seemingly placed a lot of emphasis on polished hitters and excellent plate discipline this season, and guys like Martinez, Knizner, and Edman are perfectly emblematic of that.

Boys. I compiled an update on all active professional Wolves, but it got so damned oppressive in weather-world, that I just said “screw it.”07/31/2016 at 12:01 PM #105205
Well sh-t, I’ve been so caught up in me own shite for the past month, I’ve not kept up.
Kiz is one of those guys that just does so much well, I expect to see him with the big club within a few yrs.
