Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 5/16

Seems like a lot of big performances from our big players tonight. I am ok with this.

Gwinnett 4, Lehigh Valley 1 - Final 8 Innings

  • B. Jones 2-4 2B, RBI
  • B. Conrad 1-2 HR(5), BB
  • T. Hanson 7IP 2H 0R 1BB 7K

Ho humm, just another outing by Tommy Hanson. The good thing is he is getting a litte more efficient with his outings. He threw 94 in this one and maybe could have gone a couple more innings. Medlen threw 1/3 of an inning in this one giving up one run but the game was called due to rain. I guess he was just getting some work before he actually gets his start in Atlanta.

Mississippi 12, Montgomery 1

  • G. Hernandez 3-5 2B, 2RBI, BB, CS(5), PO
  • W. Cabrera 3-6 2B, 5RBI, K
  • JC Boscan 3-5 2 2B, 3RBI, K
  • C. Rodriguez 3-5 HR(1), 2RBI, K

This is the kind of offense I expect from this team! It was all kind of bunched up between these 4 guys though. Hernandez is having a great season but he really needs to learn the bases a little better; two outs on the paths is just unacceptable with his speed and talent. Also, Jorge Campillo made a rehab start going 2 scoreless innings.

Potomac 2, Myrtle Beach 6

  • R. Marcial 2-4 HR(1), 2RBI
  • J. Heyward 2-4 HR(7), 2RBI
  • C. Johnson 1-4 2B, 2K

Jason Heywar has pushed his OPS back up over .900 on the season and has homered 3 times in his last 4 games. Remember last year he only hit 11 on the season. At this rate he will have that by the middle of next month, if not sooner. He also played CF tonight which tells me his hammy is probably feeling better.

Rome 4, Greenville 0

  • G. Rodriguez 2-4 2B, RBI
  • JJ Hoover 8.1IP 7H 0R 1BB 5K
  • C. Kimbrel 0.2IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K

There really are some talented arms in the Rome rotation this year. Hooever might have the best combination of stuff and control. He only has 3 BB on the season and he induces groudballs consistently to go along with a solid K rate. Tonight was his best start of the season and his ERA is sitting at 2.27. He and Spruill at the very least give us a couple of solid arms at this level.
