Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/30

Rochester 1, Gwinnett 2

  • B. Jones 1-4 2B
  • B. Barton 1-1 HR(6). 2 BB
  • T. Redmond 7IP 6H 1R 1BB 7K

Look at Todd Redmond getting back on track. His one run allowed was of the unearned variety when Gregor Blanco missed a ball in the OF which led to Rochester scoring their only run of the night. Brandon Jones actually has 5 XBH in his last 7 games. What has gotten into him?

West Tenn 3, Mississippi 0

  • F. Freeman 2-3
  • R. Reynoso 7IP 5H 2R 1BB 0K

You know it can't be easy to get a quality start without striking out any batters, but Ryne Reynoso pulled it off. Too bad the offense was shut down by Steve Bray. Even Jason Heyward went hitless with 2 K. (Don't worry he still has almost twice as many BB as K in Mississippi and more than twice as many XBH).

Kinston @ Myrtle Beach - RAIN


Asheville 8, Rome 4

  • L. Sumoza 3-4 2B, RBI
  • A. Milligan 2-4 3B, RBI
  • JJ Hoover 5IP 8H 5R 2BB 7K

This one probably constitutes JJ Hoover's worst start of the season which isn't too bad in my estimation. I wonder if he isn't getting a little tired though as he is having his worst month of the season. His control has still been superb and as you can see he is still getting his strike outs. Asheville is the best hitting team in the league so for now I will chalk it up to that.

Danville 3, Burlington 1

  • LV Ware 1-5 2B, SB(17)
  • B. Rauh 1-3 2B, SB(4)
  • J. Teheran 8IP 2H 1R 1BB 11K

There really hasn't been anything from Julio Teheran that hasn't been impressive this season. He is getting Ks, he is pitching deep into games (7 or more innings in 4 of his 7 starts), he gets ground balls and he doesn't walk a ton of people. I really want to see him move up a level and show us what he can do. Obviously he has all the time in the world being only 18 years old.

GCL Braves 6, GCL Blue Jays 10

  • A. Odreman 2-5 RBI, 2K
  • C. Bethancourt 2-5 RBI
  • D. Falcon 2-3 2B, 3B RBI

The very young Christian Bethancourt keeps on hitting the ball to the tune of .314/.362/.465. He has shown good doubles power so far and a K rate that isn't horrible. I hope everyone has him on their lists at the end of the year.
