Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/11

Gwinnett 5, Charlotte 4

  • R. Gorecki 2-4 2B, BB, K
  • C. Burke 2-3 BB, 2 SB(4)
  • T. Redmond 7IP 5H 2R 3BB 6K

Todd Redmond has been pretty bad this year but I am guessing it is almost completely because he has been incredibly homer prone. He has given up 17 HRs in 93.2 IP. I think he has probably been a little better than his raw numbers indicate, but he is an extreme fly ball pitcher so he doesn't have a whole lot of room for error.

Mississippi 3, Birmingham 4
  • W. Cabrera 2-4 RBI
  • JC Boscan 3-4 2B, RBI
  • J. Lyman 6.1IP 5H 3R 1BB 3K

Jason Heyward is away for the Future's Game and probably won't be back till Monday at the earliest. It has been an eventful week for him. The offense didn't really step up with him out of the lineup with the 1-4 hitters going 0-15. Sweet.

Myrtle Beach 6, Frederick 12

  • M. Fisher 2-4 2B, RBI, 2K
  • C. Johnson 1-3 RBI, BB, K
  • C. Kimbrel 1IP 0H 0R 1BB 3K

Craig Kimbrel has strung together 4 consecutive games without allowing a run, his longest such streak while pitching for Myrtle Beach. This guy can just be filthy and I can't wait to see him rise up a couple more levels. David Francis, a fringe top 25 prospect for me, got rocked pretty hard in this one and hasn't been very good in his few games in the Carolina League so far.

Rome 1, Greenville 4

  • C. Shehan 2-4 2B, K
  • D. Delgado 5.2IP 7H 4R 2BB 9K

So here is a question, who is the better prospect: Dimaster Delgado or Randall Delgado? Randall was better known coming into the season and he is a full year younger but Dimaster has been better in about half as many starts as Randall. I'll be honest I don't know much about Dimaster outside of his stats this season and at least I have seen some scouting reports about Randall. I'd take Randall right now, but will keep a special eye towards Dimaster. They aren't far apart on my list.

Danville 7, Burlington 5

  • LV Wate 1-3 2B, BB, SC(10)
  • M. Jones 2-5 2B, RBI, K
  • RSF 1-4 HR(5), 2 RBI, BB
  • T. Stovall 5IP 4H 1R 3BB 6K

Ho-Hum, another game and another hit for RSF. His AVG did drop down to .451 in this one though. LV Ware has been killing the ball for Danville with 10 XBH so far and a 10/11 in SB. The problem is that he is 22 and is in his second run in the Appy League. He started the year with Rome but just couldn't cut it, but has been murdering baseballs since the Appy season started. Time to put up or shut up in Rome. Tyler Stovall has been wildly effective so far for the Braves. If the guy can get his walks under control he could be frightening to face.

GCL Braves 1, GCL Phillies 2

You know, looking at this game there just wasn't anything worth writing about.
