Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 4/17

Norfolk 7, Gwinnett 4

  • G. Blanco 2-5 2B
  • B. Jones 3-5 2 2B, RBI
  • B. Canizares 2-5 HR(2), 2 RBI
  • C. Morton 5IP 8H 3R 1BB 5K

Brandon Jones shows a little swagga in this game and getting his AVG up to .276 on the season. Canizares continues to hit the ball well as he is hitting .389 on the season with 6 XBH in 36 AB. Morton wasn't nearly as sharp this time around, though I can't expect much of an improvement over last game.

Mississippi 6, Huntsville 7

  • G. Hernandez 0-4 BB, 3K
  • P. Britton 2-4 2 2B, RBI
  • K. Cofield 6IP 2H 2R 3BB 4K

Everyone had a hit except for Hernandez and Hicks who both struck out 3 times. In case you were keeping up that is 16 in 35 AB for hicks. Not really all that good unless you are trying to set a record or something. Cofield put up good numbers last season, but his walk rate is really high (66 in 116 IP last year) and I am not convinced he can keep Russ Ortizing his way through games. Also Stephen Marek gave up 2 runs in the 9th to lose the game. Do we have any bullpen arms anywhere that are doing well?

Myrtle Beach 7, Potomac 5

  • D. Linares 2-4 2B, 2 RBI, K
  • F. Freeman 1-2 RBI
  • C. Johnson 1-4 2B, 2K

Freeman came out of the game in the 4th inning. I don't know what for but I'll do what I cn to find out. Cody Johnson now has 8 hits this season and 7 of them are XBH. I'll take that with his Ks. And he isn't even striking out half as much as Hicks. Nothing doing for Heyward tonight.

Charleston 4, Rome 5

  • J. Campusano 3-5 HR(2), RBI, K
  • S. Sime 1-3 BB. K
  • C. Shehan 2-4 2K

It is hard for me to get excited about anyone that carries a bat to work on this team. They have 3 homers as a team and one of those is from David Ross when he was rehabbing. The other two are obviously Mr. Campusano up there. I feel it will be a long season for Rome unless their pitching is spectacular.
