a fall report

Three weeks into the Arizona Fall League season, three candidates for the 2012 Mississippi Braves’ roster are faring quite well. First baseman Joey Terdoslavich is hitting .373 with a home run and seven RBIs for the Surprise Saguaros, catcher Christian Bethancourt is at .350 with two homers and eight RBIs (in 11 games) and switch-hitting outfielder Todd Cunningham is batting .326 with 11 RBIs. Also of note: Lefty Sean Gilmartin, Atlanta’s top pick in June from Florida State, is 2-0 with a 3.43 ERA in five starts. Gilmartin isn’t likely to make Double-A next season but it may not be long thereafter. Southern Miss product Brian Dozier, a rising prospect with Minnesota, is hitting .294 with a homer, 14 RBIs and 14 runs for the Mesa Solar Sox.
P.S. Former Southwest Mississippi Community College standout Jarrod Dyson, a Kansas City Royals outfielder, has left the Venezuelan Winter League because of a minor shoulder injury. He was hitting just .227.
