Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 4/12

Hopefully I can shed some light on the dark day that was.

Durham 4, Gwinnett 2

  • B. Canizares 2-2 2B, RBI, BB
  • F. Freeman 0-4 K
  • B. Hicks 1-4 2B, RBI, K
  • J. Venters 4.2IP 2H 0R 1BB 3K
  • C. Kimbrel 1IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K

Gwinnett couldn't deliver a win from what appears to be a pretty shaky offense in the early going, but they had some solid individual performances especially from the bullpen. Mike Dunn chipped in 1.1IP and recorded all 4 outs via the K. Cory Gearrin also has a scoreless 1.1 innings before Craig Kimbrel finished the game out. Scott Proctor got lit up for the second straight appearance allowing 4 runs in less than an inning of work. At this point I would expect Kimbrel (or even Gearrin) to get the call before Proctor. 

Tennessee 4, Mississippi 5

  • D. Linares 2-4 HR(1), 2 RBI
  • C. Johnson 1-4 2 RBI, K
  • R. Sullivan 6IP 6H 4R 2BB 5K

Donell Linares is another personal favorite of mine even with my brain knowing he will probably never be a major leaguer. I just like his bat and think that he could tap into some power this year and be a solid infielder for someone if just for a couple of seasons. I am pleased with Richard Sullivan's first start of the season even if it wasn't spectacular. The guy generates groundballs with the best of them and if you pair that with a good defense you have yourself something nice.

Myrtle Beach - Off Day

Rome 5, Greenville 4

  • K. Rose 2-4 2B, RBI, K
  • RSF 2-4 2B, 2 RBI
  • C. Bethancourt 2-4
  • D. Hale 5IP 6H 4R 3BB 2K
  • C. Rasmus 1.2IP 0H 0R 2BB 3K

Kyle Rose reads this blog, understands what we want and delivers. Just a day after claiming he needs to add some doubles power he manifests it gloriously! Christian Bethancourt continues to make baseballs pay for their impunity and RSF is going to drive in 100 Runs this year just because Harrilchak and Rose will be on base ALL THE FREAKING TIME in front of him. Still undefeated.
