Nunez got plenty of playing time in 2010 as he led the CT-Tigers in at-bats, however, it wasn't the most successful season from a productive standpoint. His average was low but his BAbip was still strong, he walked little, struck out a lot, and only hit for a fair amount of power.

Despite being a high potential first baseman with a lot of excitement about his power, Robbins posted an ISO just barely above .1, leaving much to be desired from a power hitter without a great walk rate or strong average. To top it off, Robbins struck it out more than once every three at-bats, leaving him as a hitter that got hits when he put the ball in play, but he didn't put the ball in play enough to post a strong average.


Ryan Enos - Age: 22

The undrafted Enos stepped into the team and emerged as one of the team's most reliable hitters. He posted a solid average, a solid walk rate and hit for a good amount of power while not striking out too often and swiping bases at a good clip. He's not a top prospect, but was a quality contributor for Connecticut in 2010.

P.J. Polk emerged as a threat at the top of the order for Connecticut in 2010 with a strong average and walk rate to go with excellent speed on the base paths. With his smaller stature, Polk wasn't a big power threat, but was able to use his speed to get extra bases on gap shots.

Ashenbrenner was even less of a power threat than Polk was, but he also posted a strong average and walk rate to help create 24 runs. He didn't hit for much power, especially for a corner infielder, but rarely struck out put together a productive 2010 thanks to it.

The defensive-minded catcher was still able to post respectable offensive numbers on a team that was a bit offensively challenged. Rodriguez was able to post a solid average without an unsustainable BAbip and hit for a bit of power. He's still a defense-first catcher, but holding his own at the plate will make him all the more valuable behind it.

Matt Perry wasn't a highly regarded draft pick, being selected as a late round pick out of Holy Cross to help fill a hole on the Connecticut roster. Perry posted a solid average that was helped with his BAbip with an excellent walk rate but almost no power.


Brett Anderson - Age: 19

Brett Anderson spent much of the 2010 campaign playing for Connecticut, but couldn't finish the year above the Mendoza Line as his average finished at .199 for the year, obviously not an ideal place for anyone to be. His walk rate was respectable, and he did for a bit of power, but without being able to hit better (and his BAbip wasn't necessarily the culprit for the incredibly low average), it will be a tough road ahead.
