2020年9月20日

在独立联盟执教14个赛季后,Fran Riordan.他在2015年加入了运动家队,当时他被任命为队长贝洛伊特,这是运动家队在中西部甲级联赛的子公司。

After two seasons with the Snappers, Riordan then led Double-A Midland to its fourth straight Texas League championship in 2017 before overseeing the A’s Triple-A affiliate in Nashville in 2018 and then piloting the team’s top affiliate in Las Vegas to a first-place finish in the PCL South division last season, when he was named the Pacific Coast League manager of the year.

在小联盟季节取消之前,他全部设定返回拉斯维加斯。相反,他最终作为圣何塞的候补阵营的教练工作人员的一部分,结束了夏天,与这些团队最有前途的年轻球员合作。在过去的周末结束的备用阵营关闭并对整个经验以及一些最高前景中获得了洞察力之后,我们谈到了Riordan。williamhill博彩

AF:众所周知,这是一个相当奇怪的一年。您计划在拉斯维加斯而不是圣何塞度过你的夏天。但显然,最好在野外的地方更好。那么,这整个经历都是对你的,在圣何塞的候补营地度过你的夏天?

Fr:嗯,随着Covid-19的情况和小联盟赛季的暂停,每个人都在空中讨论我们将要做的事情以及我们将如何在棒球上度过棒球和远离棒球。So, when the alternate site opened up and there’s some coaches that got tasked with being there to monitor the development and make sure these guys were ready to help in the big leagues, it was a huge opportunity just to be on the field again and to be with the guys. We settled on San Jose as our alternate site, and it was quite an experience. Two and a half months of being with the same guys every day and going through the grind and just experiencing something that none of us had ever experienced before, either from the staff side or the player side, was just really interesting – and we had a great time.

AF:是的,这绝对是一件你必须在前进中弥补的事情,因为以前从来没有过像这样的事情。营地里的很多人都在你拉斯维加斯的3a名单上。这是球员进入大联盟前的最后一站,所以很多球员今年真的错过了一些关键的发展时间。但是你在那里有不同的环境。你认为他们今年所处的环境会带来什么积极的影响吗?

FR:我当然知道,这是工作人员经常谈论的事情。你有年轻的球员-罗伯特帕索森泰勒soderstrom.我们今年的第一轮选秀,Brayan Buelvas另一个孩子,只有一个半赛季在亚利桑那州的联赛,人每天都在老球员,要看到他们工作,要看到他们的习惯,要看到更好的投手,要玩要快得多的速度比他们在如果他们常规的小联盟的季节。我认为,由于这次经历,这些人将会进步得更快。还有一群其他的孩子,你可以把他们包括在这个群体里,我认为他们会从这次经历中得到帮助,而不是你典型的小联盟赛季。但我并不是说每个人都是这样。有些老球员确实需要一个赛季。有一些老球员可以使用500-600打数或110-140局。但我认为每个人,作为一个男人,都尽力了。

AF: Yeah, it does seem like some of the younger guys might be the ones to really benefit from it the most in terms of really accelerating their maturation process, being around the more experienced players and coaches they’ve had the chance to be around this summer. Like I mentioned, a lot of the guys there in the camp would have been on your Triple-A Las Vegas roster this year. And I know I was really looking forward to your starting rotation there at Triple-A this year. It would have been great to see great young pitching prospects like詹姆斯卡普里利亚daulton jefferies格兰特福尔摩斯在维加斯为你投球你有多期待看到这些人在今年为你投球?你能谈谈这个夏天你在训练营看到的那些人的表现吗?

FR:是的,特别是那三个人,他们很可能会和我们一起在拉斯维加斯开始这个赛季,如果有他们会很棒。在奥克兰的时候,我曾经和这些人在一起,或者管理过他们,我对这样的前景感到很兴奋。我知道里克·罗德里格斯我们的投手教练,对于能够和这些球员一起工作并帮助他们进入大联盟感到很兴奋,但是情况却不一样。和这些人在一起,看着他们成长,仍然是一种享受。你看到一些大发展的詹姆斯Kaprielian与他完全健康和拥有至少一个缩短的季节去年试图从受伤回来,看到的上升速度和看到他在向工作真正开始认真思考作为备用站点。然后是格兰特·福尔摩斯,我在2017年一直管理他,他经历了一些转变,变得更好了——他的东西比我在2017年看到的要好得多。所以,能再次和他在一起,看到他的东西真是太好了。道尔顿·杰弗瑞是我接触最少的人。我从来没有管理过他,我只是在今年的春训中看到他投了几次球。但是,伙计,作为投手,他表现得很出色,他表现出了伟大的东西和伟大的指挥能力,在好球区很有侵略性,总是攻击击球手,就像一个职业投手一样。所以,你刚才提到的三个人,我认为他们在投手丘上有非常非常光明的未来。

AF:幸运的是,Kaprielian和Jefferies都有机会在本赛季开始他们的主要联赛。这很有趣你提到了Jefferies'命令,因为他一直以他和他的精确控制的指挥而闻名。我认为他去年只走了九个击球手。然后他有机会让那个开始,然后走了几个人在第一次坐在那里挣扎着。Do you think it was just a case of nerves with him just being there in the major leagues for the first time, because he really didn’t look like the pitcher that those of us who’ve seen him pitch in the minor leagues are used to seeing?

FR:嗯,Daulton是一个非常酷的客户。我的意思是,他是一个让他的融合的人,并且当他在那只土堆时非常重视并且非常聚焦。但我不认为你可以低估在制作主要联盟首次亮相的情绪和神经中。而且我不在乎你是多么酷或组织你是多么酷,一旦你第一次出来,它会有所不同。我谈到了Daulton一点点关于它,他说他有很多乐趣。就他的能力而言,这不是他最好的脚,因为他刚刚获得无限的能力。但他有经验很棒。一旦你可以在腰带下获得第一个,我认为下一个更容易。所以,我期待着看到Daulton。

AF:是的,我们都是。第一次站在大联盟的投手丘上是件大事,这不是每天都能发生的。去年有一些人有机会与你一起创造自己的aaa处女作,但当他们获得第一个机会时却遇到了一些困难帕克Dunshee布莱恩霍华德.你能讲一下你看到的上个赛季,你认为占一些挣扎的他们在aaa,然后你看过他们今年夏天的营地和改进和进步你可能看到他们让这个夏天?

FR:好吧,我先从布莱恩·霍华德开始。在棒球比赛中,你每跳一次,你就会有挣扎,变得更难。你的对手是更好的人,更好的击球手,更好的投手。我只是认为,在短期内,他只是不能控制棒球,特别是他的快速球。然后他会落后,不得不把球投过本垒板,然后他被击中了。我在另一个工地看到的是一个不知疲倦的工人。他总是努力使自己变得更好。他总是在替补席上做工作,以便把棒球打得更好。他在尝试不同的手臂角度。他从不同的手臂角度混合了更多的双缝合线。 He’s so tall, and he’s such a tough look for right-handers and left-handers because of the length that he has. It appears with his new arm angle that it’s more deceptive, and anytime you can be more deceptive as a pitcher, I think everyone can agree that’s a good thing. And he’s really worked hard the last two and a half months to get to a point where he’s comfortable with a little different arm angle. I think he’s started to see some results, and I think it’s going to help him a lot moving forward. Parker Dunshee, I wouldn’t look at Parker’s season last year and say that it was a struggle, because he was one of our most consistent starters. He had a run of four or five starts where he got beat up a little bit. And again, going from Double-A to Triple-A, that’s going to happen. But he was able to make those adjustments on the fly and in high-pressure situations and improved after he figured some things out. Once he started to command the fastball better, his performance improved. And I always had a lot of confidence when Parker took the mound. This year, he came into spring training a little bit bigger, a little bit stronger and had a little uptick in velocity. He was running up to 93-94 miles per hour at the alternate site. And that’s something that he’s never really had. He hasn’t had big velo. He’s always relied on deception, and he’s always relied on fastball command and mixing and matching and doing little things that great pitchers do. But with the uptick in velocity, I think he’s got a little bit more confidence. And he pitched as many innings as he could at the alternate site and did a really great job for us, so I expect good things out of Parker as well.

af:另一个你知道的人Sheldon Neuse..显然,他在纳什维尔(Nashville)进入aaa游戏的第一年遇到了一些困难。去年在维加斯,他完全变了一个人。他可能是你去年在维加斯最稳定的击球手之一,然后他去年确实有机会在运动家队进行他的大联盟首秀。看来他今年又要回到aaa了今年和你一起在维加斯。我很好奇他今年是否能强行进入大联盟的花名册。但不幸的是,如果玩家没有机会每天在aaa游戏中体验游戏,他们便很难做到这一点,并创造出管理层无法忽视的印象。那么,你能谈谈你在谢尔顿·纽兹身上看到的发展吗?你在这个夏令营看到了他身上的什么?

FR:是的,就像我们讨论的好处对于一些年轻的孩子在这个网站选择场景中,有一些人,这场景不适合它,因为它不给他们一个机会把数字aaa,迫使大联盟球队的手如果一个机会来了。我觉得谢尔顿就是其中之一。但值得赞扬的是,他每天都在做自己的事情,每天都努力工作,专注于做得更好,指挥好球带,而不是走出好球带。他在这里的时候表现得很好,最近几周他开始变得热情起来。我知道,谢尔顿也知道,任何时候他都可能被召唤去帮助大联盟球队,我知道他已经准备好了。

Fran Riordan.

AF:看看他是否能够在明止春天推动他的谈话,看起来很有意思。今年在今年的某些情况下,这几个可能有机会在今年的一点上唱歌的外场,如果计划已经走了,而且今年夏天在营地里去过那里的那些家伙格雷格Deichmann路易斯·巴雷拉.它们可能是在系统的较高级别的几个更加迷人的外场。你可以在今年夏天谈谈你在那些人中看到的东西,如果你认为今年在营地里有任何改进或进展吗?

FR:绝对,我们在奥克兰系统中最令人兴奋的两个球员,肯定 - Greg Deichmann和Luis Barrera - 两个完全不同的球员,除了出局者,还是以自己的方式动态。You have Deichmann that’s a big strong-bodied kid, very physical player, left-handed power, has a very accurate arm from the outfield, runs well for his size, very disciplined at the plate, and put himself on the map with a great [Arizona] Fall League showing last fall, and just continued it in spring training into the alternate site and really never stopped hitting. Health has been an issue for him, and seeing him healthy and seeing him play hard and seeing him be able to do the things that his talents allow him to do on an everyday basis was a lot of fun for me, because this is my first exposure to him on an everyday basis. So, I would have loved to see what he could have done in Las Vegas. He’s going to be a very, very good major league player – and he’s definitely one of our most exciting ones here. Luis Barrera was excellent from the day he stepped foot in San Jose. He made a great impression in spring training. I know鲍勃·梅尔文真的很喜欢他扮演的方式,你无法与他击中的方式争论。他有一个伟大的春天,它刚刚继续。他得到了精英蝙蝠到球技能。他做得更好让棒球桶比这么多人更好。这只是一个你无法谈论的人才。他确实有一点力量。他真的很好。他真的很好地投掷 - 他是准确的。这是我认为要长时间扮演主要联盟的人,并且真的很好,真是太好了。当他们来到替代网站时,他令人印象深刻。 I think he ended up hitting around .450 in just under 90 at-bats, with a lot of extra-base hits and some stolen bases sprinkled in there and some great plays in the outfield. So that’s the guy that really took advantage of this time, this opportunity, to make himself better – and he was definitely our best hitter in this camp.

AF:就像你说的,他们是非常不同类型的球员,但都以各自的方式吸引人。还有一位年轻的外野手,他从去年出场的时候就一直吸引着我,他现在还只是个十几岁的少年Brayan Buelvas.所以,今年夏天,我必须问你在那里看到的那个孩子。

FR:看这个家伙每天工作真是一种享受。他是一个十几岁的孩子,有很多球员比他更有经验。他在亚利桑那有一个短暂的赛季,他表现出色。他所做的每一天,快乐,他把那块田和田间的能量,他带到田野,能够显示,不仅对员工组织中的其他球员,我认为会很长一段路,因为这个孩子年纪已经很大了——而你却在谈论他的职业道德,以及他在这里这么短的时间里所能做的事情!他还是个孩子,每天都去健身房。他可能在圣何塞的两个半月里增加了八磅的肌肉。我们在练习击球,他的小组甚至不应该在球场上乱搞,而他却在外面乱搞,跳来跳去。他只是一个看比赛很有趣的人。任何时候,只要你有一个像Brayan一样热爱比赛并愿意努力工作的人,你就会有一些特别的东西——我想这就是你在Buelvas所拥有的。

AF:作为一个青少年,他是去年亚利桑那联盟最好的击球手之一,所以我真的很期待看到他在今年投入行动。但我们绝对期待在2021年看到更多他的身影。在这一点上,运动家队的体系中有一个位置似乎是幸运的,那就是游击手。这里有很多有天赋的年轻游击手,他们中的很多人都在这个夏天的训练营。当然,还有尼克•艾伦, 有洛根戴维森,谁是去年的A的首选选秀权,然后是罗伯特帕索森他是运动家队去年最好的国际签约球员,而他还只是个十几岁的孩子。我很好奇你今年在营地都看到了些什么。我知道他们都在那里工作鲍比·克罗斯比这对他们来说显然是幸运的,但你能谈谈这三位游击手吗?

Fr:是的,一个伟大的三重奏,以及我们员工的角度来看,这是一个最令人兴奋的事情之一,只是为了看到每天工作的三个人。我必须把帽子提着向Bobby Crosby提示,因为他每天都在和他们一起去,并在小事上与他们一起工作,让他们进入他们创造巨大的联盟习惯的情况,这对年轻球员来说是如此重要。鲍比刚刚做了这三个人的梦幻般的工作。Puason是三个中最年轻的,他远远远远能够破解一个主要的联盟名单,但你可以看到他有能力。你可以看到他有本能和工具,它会看到他作为交换机击球手开发的很多乐趣。他有天赋的手,一个强壮的手臂,他努力工作,他致力于他的工艺。并从一天面对的那样看他的改善,就像我们谈过的那样,他没有面对的竞争我们有一个常规赛 - 这种改善与Puason戏剧性。然后你去洛根戴维森,去年的第一轮选择只是杰出的整个时间 - 另一个交换机击球,而是一个非常实物的球员,非常强大。他真的改善了他的行动,他的手段防守,努力从不同的角度投掷。我们从替代网站营的开头看到了如此多的改进。 And the guy can really hit from both sides of the plate…and with his strength and his discipline and two really refined swings, he’s going to be a really nice player. And then Nicky Allen – everyone knows about Nicky’s defense and how slick he is. But it’s not just the great plays; it’s every play. He’s a student of the game. He wants to know about positioning. He wants to know about pitch selection. He wants to know about angles. He wants to know about where everybody should be on every play, not just himself. And he is as good as it gets defensively at shortstop. But what really stuck out to me from Nick Allen was his offense and how he worked through at-bats and tried to match up what he was trying to do during at-bats with who he is as a player – and that’s a very difficult thing for a young guy to do. A lot of people say, “Well, I want to hit home runs. I want to drive the ball in the air. I want to do this.” Well, you better have the physical ability to do that, or else you’re going to be fighting an uphill battle. And Nicky was very committed to making his at-bats count and trying to do a good job during every at-bat that would match his physical skill set. For a young player to do that, it was pretty impressive, and his bat really impressed me this camp.

AF:就像你提到的,尼克-阿伦去年在斯托克顿取得了很大的进步。考虑到他在防守上的天赋,如果他在本垒上也能成为一个高效的球员,这将是一个相当有力的组合。我知道我真的很期待看到他今年在米德兰能做些什么。我想问的最后一个球员是大家都很感兴趣的人,那就是今年运动家队的状元,接球手泰勒soderstrom..我知道他还是个十几岁的孩子,但很多人都说他看起来很成熟。你能跟我们说说你在夏令营看到了泰勒·索德斯特伦什么吗?

FR:是的,首先,让我们记住他仍然是一个孩子,这实际上是我们最后叫他“孩子”。但你谈论一个非常先进的蝙蝠和先进的知识好球区,真的,真的,真的好主意他想做什么,当他走进击球位置,从有些人你看不到,更不用说在18岁。所以,了解他的挥杆和观看他击球是一件很有趣的事情,无论是击球练习还是在笼子里练习,或者是他在比赛中能够造成的伤害。我想他最终在两个半月的时间里,在与我们的现场比赛中打出了五六个本垒打。对一个18岁的小伙子来说第一次接触职业棒球真是令人印象深刻。从抓人的角度看,他还在发展中。他将不得不真正地磨砺和工作,并掌握这门手艺。他越早做到这一点,他就能越早进入大联盟,因为那根球棒会带着他走很远的路,他会成为一个非常非常特别的击球手。所以,观看他的比赛,了解他,见证他的职业生涯是一件很有趣的事情。

AF:我认为我们都希望明年希望在行动中看到他。对你来说几个最终问题。Because the nature of this camp is so different, you’re not playing other teams, you’re not playing really competitive games every day, you’re just playing intrasquad games, this summer left a lot more time for personal instruction, one-on-one instruction with players, that you probably wouldn’t have had the time for during a full competitive season. Can you talk a little bit about how these players might benefit from that one-on-one instruction that they’ve received in what really is almost like an extended, intensive instructional league that you’ve had there this year?

FR:是的,我们在这里有很多工作人员,他们专注于球员个人的事情,所以总是有事情在发生,无论是内野手、捕手还是打击教练,他们都在训练球员。正因为如此,我认为球员们能够从工作人员那里得到更多专注的工作,而球员们也能够从中受益。我想这更多的是玩家的问题,如果这是他们真正受益的东西,但这将是每个玩家可能会说,“是的,有这么多个性化的工作是很棒的。”

AF:我的理解是,营地最近关闭了,你们都回家了。但你能谈谈现在的情况吗?运动家队还有更多的常规赛要打,让我们希望他们还有更多的季后赛要打!那么大家会去哪里呢?如果他们需要替补球员,会发生什么?剩下的路要怎么走?

FR:嗯,是的,替代网站已关闭。并将有一个教学联盟开放9月底。所以,来自替代网站的一些球员将参加教学联盟。And then there’ll be a list of players that will go onto an expanded taxi squad that will be available to help Oakland out if needed, whether an injury happens or another scenario happens where Oakland needs players, there will be an expanded taxi squad – and some of the guys from the alternative site will be on that taxi squad. So, there’s two directions guys could go. Some guys were doing neither, so they were going home, and they were finished with their season. But yeah, there’s a lot of baseball to be played for some of these guys still.

AF:那将在那里的亚利桑那州发生教学联盟吗?

FR:是的,球员和员工将在亚利桑那州。

AF:所以,有些人会去亚利桑那,有些人会回家,还有一些人会和运动家队一起旅行。

FR:是的,绝对。

AF:现在你在圣何塞夏天后回到家里放松。但我相信所有人都会受益于您在那里并拥有您的见解和您的指导以及您的经验。这绝对是我们所有人的独特一年,你自己都是独一无二的。我只是希望我们能够在明年的制服中看到你的制服,在2021赛季播放棒球的方式,我们始终预期它会被播放。

FR:当然,我也希望如此,比尔!
