Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 5/14

Gwinnett @ Buffalo - Postponed

 

Mississippi 2, Jacksonville 6

  • M. Young 2-4 2B
  • J. C. Boscan 2-4 RBI
  • S. Diamond 7IP 6H 1R 0BB 6K

Scott Diamond comes out with his best start of the year and then the bullpen gives up 5 runs to screw him out of a win. Specifically Rafael Cruz gave up 5 runs in the bottom of the 9th. J. C. Bsocan has been in baseball since 1997 and all but 2006-2007 was with the Braves. The guy has never really hit well but he has a .483 AVG in his first 29 ABs with Mississippi this season after starting the year with Gwinnett hitting .250. Take my word though, it is the most hollow .483 in history.

Myrtle Beach 6, Frederick 7 - Final 11 Innings

  • D. Linares 2-6 HR(4), 4 RBI
  • J. Heyward 1-2 HR(6), 3 BB, K
  • F. Freeman 2-5 2B
  • C. Johnson 1-5 2B, 2K

Two games lost in the bottom of the final inning. Heyward has a lower AVG this month than last month but nearly every other stat is already equal or higher than last month. His OPS is back up to .888 and I love that his power is starting to bloom. Freeman is also turning it around, though slower than Heyward. His OPS is sitting at .801 right now and his K rate is solid though his BB rate could see some improvement. Johnson is Johnson. Our old friend Jake Stevens popped up in this game too closing it out for Frederick in the 11th to earn the win. I wonder if he punched anyone in the face.

Rome 3, Asheville 2

  • L. Sumoza 1-4 2B, RBI, K
  • S. Shults 1-4 2B, K
  • Z. Spruill 8IP 7H 2R 0BB 5K

Zeke Spruill must have a Webb like sinker. He instigated 13 ground balls to 4 fly balls tonight. WOW. His record on the season is now 6-0 which has to be the best in the minors and his ERA is 1.91. If he can get his Ks up he could be one of the best pitching prospects around this time next year.
