Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/12

Gwinnett 2, Charlotte 7

  • K. Johnson 0-4
  • B. Jones 1-3 HR(1), BB
  • J. Reyes 3IP 2H 1R 2BB 1K

Holy CRAP! Brandon Jones hit a freaking home run! It only took him 66 games. Kelly Johnson didn't do anything in this rehab start and JoJo Reyes wasn't in the game very long, but he hasn't been bad in in his two starts since coming off the DL.

Mississippi - Off

 

Myrtle Beach 4, Frederick 5

  • D. Linares 2-4
  • E. Mejia 1-4 2B, RBI, K
  • G. Rodriguez 2-4 2B, 2 RBI
  • L. Sumoza 2-4 2B, CS

Cole Rohrbough looked pretty solid in his first three innings in this game but then imploded in the 4th to give up 4 runs. He just doesn't seem to be able to get through a game lately without having one bad inning. A couple other things to note here. Ernesto Mejia is now back with Myrtle Beach after being out for most of the first half with a knee injury. Mejia is an XBH machine and if he can knock the rust off he should be fun to watch. Also Gerry Rodriguez appears to have adjusted nicely to Myrtle Beach with a .964 OPS through his first 9 games here. This team might have just replaced the production they lost with Heyward and Freeman getting promoted.

Rome - Off

 

Danville 6, Burlington 3

  • RSF 1-5 RBI, K
  • R. Hefflinger 1-5 2B, 2 RBI, K
  • R. Gress 2-4 RBI, K

Yeah, look at Randy Gress getting it done! He is actually hitting a robust .304 and has nearly an .800 OPS. Why hasn't he taken Chipper's job yet?

GCL Braves - Off
