The Arizona Fall League is a hitter's league; in fact, it's rare to see a pitcher post an ERA even below 5.00. So we need to regard AFL batting statistics with a heavy grain of salt, and focus more on the hitter's swing and approach rather than the actual results. That said, by either measure, San Francisco Giants second baseman Charlie Culberson is having a fine AFL campaign.
"I was just looking to come out [to the AFL] and see how I compared to the other prospects out here," Culberson said. "Seeing that good competition, and how I stacked up with them, and prove that I belonged here."
