In contrast to a great outing on Monday, Martes coughed up three of the four runs that the East Fall Stars managed to plate, two of them coming on a no-doubt bomb. The other was a ringing RBI double off the bat of Jacob Nottingham (sigh). No cheapies here; he left some heaters in good spots and the AFL's top hitting prospects hammered them.

Paulino looked better the next inning, whiffing a pair of batters in a scoreless frame. He hasn't allowed a run in the AFL yet, though this was just his fourth outing, as they seem to be using him sparingly.

Martin keeps doing his thing when he's able to play. Gotta love the five walks against three strike outs in his six games so far. The OBP is a cool .500 at this point. I'd say it's a safe bet he begins 2017 in Double-A, and we could certainly see him in the Majors in 2018.

Better late than never for Tanielu, who has been one of the team's most solid hitters since arriving on October 22. He owns an .810 OPS in six games.
