Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/28

After being discounted by most, Steve Marek has done nothing but dominate this season.

Gwinnett 3, Rochester 1

  • F. Freeman 1-4, 2B, .289 AVG
  • B. Canizares 2-4, 2 RBI, .315 AVG
  • S. Diamond 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 4 K, W (1), 3.94 ERA
  • S. Marek 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K, 0.82 ERA
  • C. Kimbrel 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 K, SV (13), 1.85 ERA
  • Barbaro Canizares may never make an impact in the Major Leagues, but he's been a great AAA player, hitting .305 with a .809 OPS in 1625 at bats over 4 seasons. Scott Diamond allowed 6 earned run in his first AAA start, but since then he's only allowed 1 earned run in 13 innings. Steve Marek hasn't allowed a run in July, tossing 12 scoreless innings over 11 appearances.

    Mississippi 0, Huntsville 6

  • M. Gomez 2-3, BB, .270 AVG
  • J. Teheran 4.2 IP, 5 ER, 6 H, 6 BB, 3 K, 9.64 ERA
  • T. Collins 1 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 1 K, 1.50 ERA
  • Julio Teheran didn't have much success in his AA debut, as he allowed 12 baserunners in just 4.2 innings. He came back strong with Myrtle Beach after a game where he allowed 8 earned, so hopefully he can do the same for Mississippi.

    Myrtle Beach 2, Salem 4

  • J. Kreke 2-4, .319 AVG
  • G. Rodriguez 1-4, 2B, BB, .229 AVG
  • LV Ware 2-4, 2B, 3B, .263 AVG
  • B. Oberholtzer 5 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 2 BB, 4 K, 4.73 ERA
  • Jordan Kreke continues his hot hitting for the Pelicans, and he's done almost all of it playing at second base for the first stretch in his pro career. He was a solid defender at third, so he has a chance to be a good one at second, and his bat would play much better there. LV Ware is on a hot streak as well, hitting .385 with a 1.102 OPS in his last 10 games. Brett Oberholtzer gave up 8 earned runs in just 4 innings his last time out, but held the Red Sox to just 1 earned in 5 innings tonight.

    Rome - Off

    Danville 0, Britol 4, Game 1

  • B. Kleinknect 1-4, 2B, .287 AVG
  • T. Stovall 3 IP, 1 ER, 5 H, 5 BB, 4 K, 2.70
  • The D-Braves only got 3 hits in the one, one of them a double by Barrett Kleinknect, who played second base in this game. Tyler Stovall had a 1:1 strikeout to walk ratio last season, and he's been close to that this year with 18 strikeouts and 16 walks in 16.2 innings.

    Danville 2, Bristol 1, Game 2

  • J. Terdoslavich 3-3, 2B, SB (2), E (10), .266 AVG
  • R. Pacheco 5 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 13 K, W (1), 7.03 ERA
  • D. Acord 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 2 K, SV (3), 3.86 ERA
  • The D-Braves only picked up 4 hits in the second game and 3 of those were by Joey Terdoslavich. Over his last 3 starts, Ronan Pacheco had allowed 13 earned runs in 9.1 innings, but he only allowed 1 earned tonight over 5 frames. He nearly doubled his season strikeout total, fanning 13 White Sox hitters.

    GCL Braves 0, GCL Blue Jays 4

  • E. Castillo 6 IP, 4 ER, 9 H, 1 BB, 3 K, 3.71 ERA
  • The Braves only picked up 2 hits in this game and starting pitcher Eduardo Castillo allowed too many baserunners.
