4/17 Minor League Update

New, 5 comments

Richmond 1, Rochester 2

  • B. Canizares - 2-4 2B, K
  • S. Thorman - 2-4 K
  • C. Sammons - 2-4
  • F. Bueno - 7IP 9H 2R 0BB 4K
  • Bueno pitched a very good game here. I wonder what he will have to do to get himself on the 40 man roster. Anyways, two more hits for Canizares who was the International League Hitter of the week. Richmond is 4-2 in one run games this season. I wish they would pass some of that mojo upwards.

    Mississippi 5, Birmingham 6

  • G. Creek - 2-3 2B, HR(1), 4 RBI, BB, K
  • D. Hernandez - 2-4 K
  • J. Cuevas - 3.2IP 8H 2R 1BB 2K
  • You know the most impressive thing here for me is how Cuevas allowed nine base runners in less than 4IP and gave up only two runs. Amazing. Greg Creek is ripping the ball right now with a .344 avg in his last 10 with 6 XBH and 7/7 K/BB. Not bad at all. Also the Mississippi pitching staff will be getting a boost from Carlos Sencion, just a day after I wondered what they were doing with him. He will be replacing RHP Brad Nelson who was promoted to Richmond in place of retiring Mike Rozema.

    Myrtle Beach 1, Kinston 2

  • G. Hernandez - 1-4 HR(1), 2 K
  • R. Reynoso - 5IP 2H 0R 1BB 5K
  • Gorkys led off the game with a home run. It was the Pelicans first and last hit. Amazingly enough they actually held the lead until the ninth, but Butts blew it by loading the bases and giving up a couple of run scoring singles. Reynoso pitched well in only allowing three base runners. He has given up a few runs in his first couple of starts but he still has 18K in 12IP this season so he has some life in his arm. He is already 23 though so he needs to put it together quick to be a real prospect.

    Rome took the day off. They will have Savannah visiting them tomorrow with Steve Evarts taking the hill. Not much else tonight. I honestly am intrigued to see what Carlos Sencion will do at Mississippi. Has anyone seen him pitch and if so do you have any impressions, positive or negative?
