Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 8/22

Charlotte 2, Gwinnett 3

  • C. Burke 1-4 2B
  • B. Conrad 2-3
  • B. Jones 1-4 2B

Win, Win, WIn for the G-Braves! JoJo Reyes went 5 strong innings (only 86 pitches) though his K rate is still lower than it has been in the past. Brandon Jones is still OPSing close to .900 for the month and more than half his hits have gone for extra bases. Kind of amazing he hasn't been called up at all this season, though he has been pretty mediocre for most of the year.

Mississippi 7, Chattanooga 1

  • M. Young 2-3 2B, 2 BB, CS(15)
  • J. Heyward 1-5 3B, RBI, K
  • C. Rodriguez 2-5 2 2B, 2 RBI, K
  • T. Gustafson 7.2IP 5H 1R 2BB 6K

Mississippi has been pretty good recently too, but they really don't have a shot of making the playoffs. Jason Heyward looks like he might be leveling off a little bit, but he still hasn't come completely out of his funk. Concepcion Rodriguez has also been a bit better this month (and last month to a certain extent) as he has been hitting over .300 and OPSing over .800. The one thing though is his power has completely disappeared this season. Tim Gustafson has been pretty good as a starter in Mississippi. I wonder what his future is?

Frederick 6, Myrtle Beach 2

  • D. Linares 1-3 HR(11), 2 RBI, K
  • C. Johnson 0-4 4K
  • J Sucre 2-4
  • R. Sullivan 6IP 8H 0R 0BB 4K

Well that was a nice start by Richard Sullivan that was ruined by the bullpen. Also, I don't know if Cody Johnson has struck out 4 times in a game this season, and that is saying something. Also, Donell Linares continues to be the best hitter on the team for the month.

Savannah 7, Rome 4

  • Y. Campusano 3-5
  • A. Milligan 2-4 BB, 2K
  • L. Sumoza 1-3 2B, 3 RBI

Randall Delgado got H A M M E... ok, you know what? He gave up a lot of runs. 7 in just 2.1 innings pitched. Probably his worst start of the season. The bullpen was great, coming in and pitching 6 innings of 3 hit ball. Also, if anyone was wondering, Adam Milligan is still hitting like a man.

Greeneville 4, Danville 5 - 10 Innings

  • LV Ware 2-5 2B, K
  • RSF 2-5 2B, 3 RBI
  • C. Rasmus 2.2IP 5H 3R 4BB 3K

Win, Win, Win for the D-Braves! Danville is up on the division by 10 games right now and are sporting a .707 win pct. That is pretty solid. Cory Rasmus did allow his first hits in two games.Aslo, RSF has fallen off a little of late. He still has an OPS of .810 in August, but that has fallen pretty far from the .958 in July.
