Minor League Recaps: 8/15

Toledo 7, Richmond 2

  • J. Anderson 1-4 BB, 2 K
  • B. Lillibridge 1-4 2B, BB
  • B. Canizares 5-5 RBI

Josh Anderson is currently riding a 22 game hit streak that has seen his average rise from .284 to .313 which is good for 4th in the International League. He leads the league in total hits and has really been on a torrid pace as of late. I've never been overly impressed with him because he just seems like another version of Greg White that doesn't walk as much. Well I guess they can give him a shot.

Mississippi 5, Mobile 7

  • M. Young 4-5 2B, K
  • K. Kaaihue 2-4 2B, BB
  • J. Schafer 1-3 2B, 3 RBI, BB

Deunte Heath got lit up in this game giving up 7 runs in 5 innings. The amazing thing for me though is he didn't walk anyone. I'll call it a draw for him.

Potomac 4, Myrtle Beach 3

  • W. Cabrera 2-5 HR(16)
  • E. Mejia 3-4 2B
  • S. Diamond 6IP 5H 2R 1BB 6K

Little known fact: Willie Cabrera has hit around .340 since the beginning of June. He had an abysmal April (hit .191) that dragged his stats down for the entire season. A closer look at his stats reveal he is someone we might want to keep an eye on. He just turned 22 so he isn't way too old for the league, maybe a little, but not alarmingly so. His lefty/righty splits are pretty much even and he has an .845 OPS on the season hitting in that cave they call a stadium tacked onto his bad start. He could be put on the 40 man next season and might get a midseason call up next year if some pieces fall right.

Lake County 1, Rome 4

  • J. Heyward 1-4
  • F. Freeman 1-4 3B, RBI, 2 K
  • C. Johnson 1-4 HR(22), 2 RBI, 2 K
  • R. Sullivan 5IP 5H 1R 1BB 4K

Jason Heyward is still getting hits and Cody Johnson is hitting homers and striking out. All is right in the world! Richard Sullivan has been pretty good this year. I don't know anything about him though.

Danville 2, Elizabethton 6

  • M. Kennelly 2-4 HR(4), 2 RBI
  • J. Teheran 2IP 2H 1R 0BB 1K

Teheran didn't get rocked this time around, but I think they are probably treating him with kid gloves right now and honestly a 17 year old in professional baseball shouldn't be able to get anyone out.

Brave 3, Yankees 2 - Game 1

  • C. Culver 1-3 3B, 2 RBI
  • C. Maddox 1-2 HR(4), BB
  • J. Ortegano 1IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K

Like I said, anytime we beat the Yankees I am happy.

Yankees 0, Braves 3

  • C. Maddox 2-4 2B, RBI
  • Z. Spruill 5IP 7H 0R 1BB 1K

A good game for our top draft pick this season. And a sweep of a a team organized with the Yankees. WOOT!
