Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 9/4

Arodys Vizcaino may have re-injured his ailing right elbow.

Gwinnett 2, Charlotte 9

  • M. Young 1-3, RBI, 2 BB, SB (39), .301 AVG
  • C. Sammons 2-4, E (1), .163 AVG
  • D. Nelson 2-4, 2B, .500 AVG
  • S. Diamond 4 IP, 7 ER, 8 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 3.36 ERA
  • Scott Diamond found the hitter friendly confines in Charlotte didn't agree with him, as he had his worst AAA start since his first one. Matt Young reached base 3 times and stole his 39th bag of the year. One more steal and he'll have his second straight year with 40 or more steals. Clint Sammons had a 2 hit game, but more impressively he made his first error of the whole season. Dan Nelson continues to destroy AAA pitching.

    Mississippi 10, Birmingham 5

  • My. Jones 2-6, SB (1), .217 AVG
  • M. Gomez 3-5, 2B, RBI, .279 AVG
  • C. Colonel 2-4, RBI, .346 AVG
  • LV Ware 2-5, 3B, 2 RBI, .389 AVG
  • M. Daniel 1-5, HR (3), 4 RBI, .248 AVG
  • C. Miles 1-3, 2 BB, .222 AVG
  • J. Teheran 5 IP, 2 ER, 5 H, 0 BB, 5 K, 3.38 ERA
  • R. Sullivan 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 4 K, 5.09 ERA
  • After an 11 day hiatus, Julio Teheran returned to the mound, capping off his season with a solid start. For the year he had a 2.55 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 6.7 H/9, 3.9 K/BB, 10.1 K/9, and 2.6 BB/9 in 137.2 innings between Rome, Myrtle Beach, and Mississippi. LV Ware has been hot in AA, with a .389 average and 1.000 OPS in 5 games. Christian Colonel was a nice pick up out of Indy ball, hitting .346 with a 1.077 OPS in 9 games since joining the organization.

    Myrtle Beach 3, Lynchburg 4

  • J. Kreke 2-4, 2B, .224 AVG
  • G. Rodriguez 3-3, HR (13), 2 RBI, BB, .254 AVG
  • P. Clemens 6 IP, 4 ER, 9 H, 0 BB, 5 K, 3.69 ERA
  • Gerry Rodriguez has averaged a homer every 24 at bats, which is much less than the one every 19 at bats he averaged last year with the Pelicans. He's also had a lower average, on base percentage, slugging percentage, and OPS than last year, and is striking out in 35% of his at bats this year compared to 32% last year. Paul Clemens had a so-so start, allowing a few too many hits. But, on the positive side, he didn't walk anyone.

    Rome 0, Lexington 6

  • J. Terdoslavich 1-3, 2B, BB, 2 E (4, 5), .315 AVG
  • R. Hefflinger 2-3, BB, .245 AVG
  • A. Vizcaino 1.1 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 1 K, 2.39 ERA
  • R. Weber 5.2 IP, 5 R, 2 ER, 8 H, 0 BB, 5 K, 4.98 ERA
  • T. Stovall 1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 K, 9.00 ERA
  • Joey Terdoslavich has now made 5 errors in 16 games at third base for Rome, after making 5 in 18 games at third for Danville. He's made an additional 11 errors in 33 games at first base, so with a combined 29 errors in 65 games in the field (he's been the DH 3 times) you have to wonder if he's going to hit enough in the future to make up for his lack of defensive ability. Apparently Arodys Vizcaino left the game in the second with an injury to his arm, so hopefully this is just a minor aggrevation of his previous injury and not a new, more catastrophic one. Ryan Weber gave up a few too many hits, and had some poor defense played behind him, but he managed to get out of things without giving up too many runs.
