.300 .375 .620 .995 in September (.379 BABIP)
4 homers, 4 doubles, 12 rbi
K rate is a bit high, and BB rate is lowish, but I think that is part in due to trying to do the power stuff.

Interesting analyses he has though for what is expected of him, and how he approaches pitchers/expectations.

Rosario since August 18
.314 .342 .443 .785 (.385 BABIP)

If both finish strong, I'd say they have met expectations. Wish we would have seen both earlier.

Other good news
Plaw (since return).306 .393 .510 .903 (.310 BABIP); 5 Ks, 6 BBs
Nimmo (since playing every day) .287/.407/.448/.856 (30 games)

Reyes since July 1
.293 .359 .495 .854 (.314 BABIP)

Just looking for some silver linings!

I think there's going to be a lot of skepticism around several of those guys and September numbers should always be taken with a grain of salt.

Still, . . . A lot of next seasons success will depend on how the kids step up. Nimmo, Plaw, Dom and (obviously) Rosario could all play big roles for the team next year. If they step up it could be fun.

Man it's just so hard to really take their results right now and just pencil them in. I think Dom is legit....But have Wilmer split time and LR matchups at first.

Amed is awesome, and yes he has trouble with the zone but that comes with time. I think his skill level is great.

I think Plaw is legit too...Not what he's doing legit but I wouldn't be upset with Plaw and TdA tandem. Nimmo I think is great as the backup 4th OF who has very good plate discipline.

C Plaw/ TdA
1B Dom/ Wilmer
2B Wilmer/ TJ/ AsCab
SS Amed
3B Moustakas/ AsCab
LF Yo
CF Nimmo/Lagares
RF Conforto/ *don't really care for Aoki but I'll put him here.

I agree on them playing roles on the roster.

Dom, backed up by Wilmer & maybe TJ means we're OK at 1st base (no Matt Reynolds please).

Nimmo/Lagares & Conforto in a pinch means we're OK at CF. (Not sure how Nimmo looks in CF, but worth a try.

and Plaw might even steal the starting catcher job from d'Arnaud.

It's at least a bit of positive going into next season that they could fill in respectably.

The pitching is still a big question mark after the top 2 though.

I'm really happy with how all three of Rosario, Smith, and Nimmo have looked. Plawecki as well although I'm less sold on him right now compared to the other three. Really pleased with the youth right now.
