Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/18

Light hitting infielder Matt Weaver has a .882 OPS in his last 10 games.

Gwinnett 1, Buffalo 2

  • N. McLouth 0-4, .258 AVG
  • M. Young 1-3, 2B, BB, .304 AVG
  • D. Hernandez 2-3, RBI, CS (1), E (4), .315 AVG
  • J. Ortegano 5 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 6 K, 6.12 ERA
  • L. Hyde 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 K, 0.00 ERA
  • Jose Ortegano picked up his 7th loss, but pitched well with a 5th inning Brandon HIcks error leading to an unearned run that was the difference maker. In his 3 games since coming back from Atlanta, Hicks has gone 1-13 with 7 strikeouts. The complete lack of playing time during his time in the Majors this season has been a true hinderance to his ability to get any kind of rhythm going.

    Rome 2, Hagerstown 7

  • P. Gosselin 2-5, 2B, RBI, .329 AVG

  • In his last 2 starts, Robinson Lopez has allowed 10 earned runs in 7.2 innings. June and July have been rough for him overall, as he's given up a 5.74 ERA and a 1.44 ERA. After playing right field last night, Matt Weaver got to play his natural shortstop tonight, and while he hasn't found much succes witht he bat as a pro, he's on a hot streak right now, hitting .351 with a .882 OPS in his last 10 games. Phil Gosselin has been hot over his last 10 as well, hitting .359 with a .919 OPS. And Joe Leonard has hit the cover off the ball in his 4 games with Rome, going 6-17 with 2 doubles, 2 triples, 2 homers, and 6 RBI.

    Danville 13, Pulaski 7

  • D. Rohm 2-6, 2B, SB (1), .385 AVG
  • J. Dalfonso 2-3, HR (1), RBI, SB (1), E (1), .304 AVG
  • E. Gattis 2-5, HR (1), 2 RBI, .333 AVG
  • J. Terdoslavich 2-3, 3B, RBI, 2 BB, .261 AVG
  • B. Rauh 4-5, 2B, HR (1), 2 RBI, .366 AVG
  • R. Pacheco 4 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 6.62 ERA
  • T. Stovall 3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 BB, 3 K, W (1), 1.35 ERA
  • The D-Braves got all over the P-Mariners, pounding out 15 hits, 7 of them for extra bases including homers by Jakob Dalfonso, Evan Gattis, and Bobby Rauh, the first of the year for all of them. Rauh had a great day, rapping out 4 hits and scoring 4 runs, and he's been great in limited time, hitting .366 with a .959 OPS in 41 at bats. David Rohm just keeps on hitting, getting 2 more hits, giving him 5 in 3 games with Danville. Last year Tyler Stovall allowed a walk for each batter he struck out; this year he's improved slightly, averaging 1.6 K/BB. If he can continue to cut down on his walks, and keep striking out more than a batter an inning, he could develop into a real weapon out of the bullpen.
