Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 4/14

Gwinnett 0, Durham 1

  • T. Hanson 5.2IP 2H 1R 2BB 7K
  • B. Jones 2-3

Gotta say it sucks that Tommy didn't get the win for this game. He pitched well, just running into his pitch count (95 it looks like) in the 6th inning. The only player to have multiple hits was Swagga and no one had any XBH for the Braves.

MIssissippi 4, Huntsville 5  Final in 13 Inn.

  • G. Hernandez 4-6 2B, 2K, 2 SB
  • K. Kaaihue 2-4 2B, RBI, K
  • W. Cabrera 1-4 2B RBI, BB, K

Remember when I said this infield would strike out 500 times this year? Well the team struck out 18 times in 13 innings tonight. Brandon Hicks and Travis Jones had 7 between them. Bleh. They were up against Jeremy Jeffress who throw like 100 MPH but they didn't ease up much after he left. One bright spot is Gorkys though. He has been walking some and it looks like his speed is finally back after last year's hammy injury so he might bounce back to being an elite prospect again which would probably make him trade bait.

Frederick 10, Myrtle Beach 5

  • J. Heyward 2-4 2B, 2K
  • F. Freeman 1-4 HR(2), 2 RBI
  • C. Johnson 2-3 2B,HR(4), BB, K

The big three did their thing in this game combining for 4 XBH. Cody Johnson leads the minors in homers (unless someone hit 3 tonight) and so far all of his hits are for extra bases this short season. He also leads the team in walks and at this point he and Heyward have the same number of Ks. He is impressing so far this season; could he hit 40 homers? The Pelicans were also facing super prospect Brian Matsuz in this game.


Savannah 6, Rome 7

  • D. Ross 2-4 HR, 3 RBI, K
  • G. Rodriguez 3-4 K
  • S. Sime 2-3

David Ross' rehab assignment went pretty well at the plate and behind it as he threw out a potential base stealer. My boy Chris Shehan (he was my orgnizational sleeper pick) i 0fer the season so far. So I'm a fool 5 games into the season. Also I feel obligated to mention Samuel Sime (even though I don't consider him much of a prospect) since he is batting .500 right now. Sure it is only 4 games so far but he deserves to be mentioned.
