Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/1

Gwinnett - Off


Mississippi 6, West Tenn 5

  • M. Young 3-4 2B, 3B, BB, K
  • W. Cabrera 2-4 2B, RBI, BB, K
  • C. Rodriguez 1-3 3B, RBI, 2 BB

Mat Young fell a homer short of the cycle in this game and continues to be a spark plug at the top of the order for Mississippi. His OPS is up over .800 for the season now and is coming off a month where he hit .323 with a .455 OBP. Willie Cabrera quietly had an excellent month of June posting a .290/.387/.450 line for the month. I wouldn't be surprised to see him start to come on in the second half of the season.

Myrtle Beach 6, Kinston 5, - 10 Innings

  • D. Linares 2-5 RBI, K
  • J. Sucre 2-5 2B
  • C. Rohrbough 5.2IP 9H 5R 3BB 6K

Cole Rohrbough just doesn't want to be the Braves top pitching prospect. He keeps flashing some of that ability we know is in there somewhere but he is walking too many guys and giving up too many hits. Frederick Freeman and Jason Heyward combined for 1 hit. Heyward is actually in the middle of an 8 game hitting streak right now, but it has been mostly singles. He hasn't really flashed a whole lot of power since he came back to the team, but I'm not supa worried. Jesus Sucre has also hit pretty well since he got called up from Rome.

Bowling Green 6, Rome 1

  • D. Delgado 7IP 4H 6R 2BB 6K

Consecutive bad starts for the Delgado boys. Delgado gave up all of his runs in the 4th inning and made a mistake that ended up being a grand slam. He induced a ton of groundballs (11 vs 4 fly outs) and was victimized by an error and a passed ball in the 4th as well. He really did pitch better than his numbers would indicate. And even those look good without the runs (which are of course the most important).

Kingsport 2, Danville 4

  • A. Milligan 2-4 BB
  • RSF 4-4 2RBI
  • T. Stovall 4.1IP 1H 0R 5BB 7K

Do you love or hate this outing by Tyler Stovall? I guess I am ok since all total he only allowed 6 baserunners, and those Ks do look really nice. But 5 walks will always raise a miature red flag. Some people think that Stovall will be the best pitcher we took last year because of his projectability. RSF is hitting .538 in his first 8 games of the season. Thats stupid, even if it is just 8 games.
