Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 6/5

Myke Jones has a 1.212 OPS during his 8 game hitting streak.

Gwinnett 1, Scranton-Wilkes Barre 2

  • J. Schafer 1-5, 2B, .217 AVG
  • F. Freeman 1-2, RBI, 3 BB, .264 AVG
  • B. Hicks 2-3, BB, .203 AVG
  • C. Resop 6.2 IP 2 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 2.10 ERA
  • J. Lyman 2.1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 4.71 ERA
  • Freddie Freeman played in his first game in a week and a half and collected a single and 3 walks. The only real knock on his season so far has been his surprising lack of walks, so it's nice to see him get back in the lineup and take some free bases. It took him 2 months, but Brandon Hicks has climbed over the Mendoza Line. Chris Resop continues to be effective, despite taking the loss.

    Mississippi 2, West Tennessee 4

  • D. Linares 3-4, HR (8), 2 RBI, .265 AVG
  • S. Diamond 5.1 IP, 4 ER, 9 H, 2 BB, 2 K, 4.45 ERA
  • B. Beachy 1.2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 K, 1.36 ERA
  • Donell Linares plated both Mississippi runs by driving in Antoan Richardson and himself with a home run. As much as I love Wes Timmons, I think it's worth moving Linares up to AAA to see what he can do. Realistically, he's 26 yeras old, he can either hit at the higher level and maybe help you in the Majors or he can't. Either way, it's worth finding out. After a few good starts, Scott Diamond has had a pair of bad ones, allowing 8 earned runs in his last 11.1 innings.

    Myrtle Beach 4, Salem 6

  • D. Nelson 2-3, RBI, 2 BB, SB (3), .254 AVG
  • L. Sumoza 2-4, E (1), OF Assist, .203 AVG
  • J. Teheran 5 IP, 2 ER, 6 H, 0 BB, 4 K, 1.04 ERA
  • Julio Teheran is human. Which is to say that he's not always amazing. If 2 earned runs in 5 innings is the worst things are going to get for him, then I think we'd all be very pleased.

    Rome 5, Charleston 6

  • M. Jones 3-5, 2B, HR (6), 3 RBI, .266 AVG
  • O. Marval 2-4, RBI, .226 AVG
  • C. Masters 5.1 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, 4 BB, 5 K, 1.88 ERA
  • Another Braves affiliate loses to another Yankees affiliate as Chris Masters has maybe his worst start of the season. He uncharacteristically walked way too many, and even allowe more hits than he usually does. Myke Jones is on a 8 game hit streak that has seen him go 13-31, that's a .419 average, with 2 doubles, 3 homers, and 9 RBI in that span with a 1.212 OPS. Not only has he played well enough to dig himself out of a seemingly inescapable hole, but I think he's played well enough to earn a promotion to Myrtle Beach.

    DSL Braves 1, DSL Rangers 2

  • E. Salcedo 0-3, 2 K, .091 AVG
  • E. Castillo 5 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 3 K, 1.80 ERA
  • So every Braves affiliate lost tonight. 19 year old Eduardo Castillo pitched well, allowing just 1 earned run, but his team didn't score any runs for him. I'm not sure if the game ended early because of rain, or if they just do whatever they want in the Dominican, but the game was completed after just 6 innings.
