Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 4/10

Charlotte 1, Gwinnett 5

  • M. Young 2-4 2B, RBI, SB(1)
  • F. Freeman 0-4 K
  • T. Redmond 7IP 3H 1R 0BB 6K

This was a fantastic start for Todd Redmond who just completely shut down Charlotte's lineup. You don't see many guys go 7 innings in their first start of the year, but he threw just 89 pitches. Matt Young sparked the lineup from the second spot by swiping his first bag this season and knocking a double. Freddie Freeman has struggled a little early but not like Mitch Jones who is still without a hit for the year.

Tennessee 7, Mississippi 3

  • W. Cabrera 2-5 2B, HR(1), RBI, K
  • C. Johnson 1-3 BB, 2K
  • S. Diamond 5IP 8H 2R 1BB 5K

Scott Diamond, one of my preferred pitchers in the organization, pitched OK in his season debut, though a little more hittable than I like. Willie Cabrera is my two years running breakout candidate and I am praying he doesn't make me look the fool again this season. Cody Johnson has now struck out in every plate appearance in which he hasn't reached base.

Wilmington 4, Myrtle Beach 6

  • G. Rodriguez 1-3 2B, 2BB, RBI, K
  • J. Sucre 3-4 2RBI
  • Z. Spruill 5IP 5H 3R 1BB 4K

The Braves must be preaching patience pretty hardcore at The Beach this year because they are taking a lot of walks. The team took 11 total in this game with Yoel Campusano taking 3 himself after only 28 in over 400 PAs last year and Gerry Rodriguez has 3 this season after just 27 in nearly 500 PAs. Whatever it is I'll take it, too many guys on this team have plate discipline issues.

Rome 6, Kannapolis 3

  • K. Rose 3-4 CS(2)
  • M. Jones 2-4 2 2B, 2 RBI
  • B. Oberholtzer 4IP 5H 0R 2BB 1K
  • R. Lopez 2IP 1H 1R 0BB 2K
  • C. Rasmus 1IP 1H 0R 0BB 2K

This Rome team is going to be tough to beat. They  have pitching for days and the offense is solid if not dynamic in some aspects (speed). Mycal Jones is going to rack up extra base hits, its just what he does. Robinson Lopez made his full season debut without and looked good. The only thing I worry about with this team is they have only taken 4 walks in 3 games.
