Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/7

Just a little suggestion for everyone that will be helpful. Now that mobile commenting is available for your choice of pocket internet one of the options that I think everyone should start to make use of is the 'Jump' space that appears when you start a new Fanpost. Using the 'Jump' space makes it easier to browse the mobile sites Fanpost section because it will only show what is above the jump when browsing and then show the whole post when you click on it instead of just showing the title of the Fanpost like the regular site does. Basically it just saves some scrolling time, but also gives readers a quick snipet of what you r post will be about; a sort of prologue. Thanks, and I hope this helps.

Gwinnett 3, Durham 8

  • R. Gorecki 2-3 2 2B, BB, K
  • B. Canizares 1-3 2B, 2 RBI
  • J. Reyes 2IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K

A nice comeback start in this game for JoJo Reyes, who has been on the DL for over a month now. He is another guy that gives the Braves some of that much needed starter insurance. Who would like to see Reid Gorecki get a shot in RF for the Braves? What is the worst that could happen?

Jacksonville 6, Mississippi 0

  • B. Hicks 1-3 2B, BB, K
  • J. Heyward 1-3 2B, BB
  • F. Freeman 1-4

Jason Heyward got his 4th XBH in 4 games with Mississippi and he now has a .921 OPS on the year between A+ and AA as a 19 year old. Just wow. What we are looking at with him is really something special. I mean what is the low end of his ceiling? Garrett Anderson when he was good? High end? Manny Ramirez from the left side? I'm not trying to incite mass hysteria but he really might be the best hitting prospect we have had since Andruw Jones. (Lets not mention Andy Marte).

Potomac 10, Myrtle beach 1

  • G. Rodriguez 2-4 K
  • C. Rohrbough 2.2 5H 6R 5BB 3K, WP, HBP
  • C. Kimbrel 1IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K

Cody Johnson is only hitting .190 in July but still has an .870 OPS for the month. Thats kinda crazy. There has to be something wrong with Cole Rohrbough, that or he was ridiculously overhyped. Craig Kimbrel appears to have finally calmed down in Myrtle Beach. He posted his third straight scoreless outing tonight and his first inning in A+ where he didn't allow a baserunner.

Rome 0, Lexington 1

  • Z. Spruill 8IP 3H 0R 0BB 10K

Easily the best start of the season for Zeke and probably the best start by any Braves farmhand this season. Zeke had a no hitter going into the 6th and almost gave up a run on a double and a single but Adam Milligan gunned the runner at the plate to end the inning. Too bad the offense couldn't get things going. Maybe it was because Danville was having all the fun.....

Danville 23, Pulaski 7

  • M. Jones 3-4 HR(1), 3 RBI, BB, K, SB(4), PO
  • C. Harrilchak 5-7 4 RBI, SB(3)
  • RSF 3-5 2B, RBI, 2BB, K
  • R. Hefflinger 2-5 2B, HR(6), 5 RBI, 2BB, 3K
  • D. Wiley 2-6 2 HR(2), K

Good lord that is a lot of offense. You know it was funny at first because it was just a few games, but I really think they need to move RSF up. The guy is still hitting .474 through 14 games, which doesn't seem like a lot, but anyone that hits like over a span of 3 weeks deserves to get bumped up.

GCL Braves 1, GCL Blue Jays 0 - 7 Innings

  • R. Pacheco 3.2IP 0H 0R 2BB 4K
  • D. Alvarez 2IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K
  • J. Hayes 1IP 0H 0R 1BB 0K

Yeah thats right, this trio of Braves pitchers no hit the Blue Jays team for 6.2 innings. Not bad guys. The Braves offense only mustered three hits, but there were enough errors to get them one run around.

GCL Blue Jays 3, GCL Braves 4 - 8 Innings

  • L. Hiller 2-4 HR(2), 4 RBI
  • K. Farrell 5IP 2H 1R 1BB 4K

Nothing really special in this other half of a split squard game. Hillers 3 run shot was most of the offense and then he delivered the walk off hit in the bottom of the 8th inning.
