Minor League Recaps: 6/4

New, 6 comments

Richmond 8, Durham 1

  • D. Hernandez - 3-5 HR(3)
  • S. Thorman - 2-5 2 HR(9), 2 K
  • J. Perry - 2-4 HR(2)

I don't know if Chuck James was on a pitch count or if he got hurt again but he came out after 3.1 IP and allowing only 1 hit. Scott Thorman continues to beat the ball into submission in the new month and is trying to prove to someone he is a major league hitter. I'm not really sure he is, but he is a pretty good AAA hitter. He still needs to cut back on his Ks some. Richmond is now back in 1st in the division.

Birmingham 3, Mississippi4

  • J. Schafer - 2-4 HR(1)
  • K. Kaaihue - 3-3 2B, 2 RBI
  • M. Gonzalez - 1IP 1H 0R 1K

Jordan Schafer seems to be shaking the rust off pretty well. He has 6 hits on the season and 3 of them are for extra bases. In his 3 games back he is 5-13 with a double, HR, 4 RBI, 2 BB and K. Definitely solid production. I can't wait to see him get back in the swing of things and start producing and judging from the circumstances surrounding his suspension I think he is going to have a chip on his shoulder. In other news Kala Kaaihue is doing a poor man's Scott Thorman impersonation. He just doesn't quite have it yet.

Winston-Salem 2, Myrtle Beach 4

  • T. Flowers - 2-2 2B, RBI, 2 BB
  • R. Marcial - 3-4 2 RBI
  • S. Diamond - 6IP 6H 1R 2BB 7K

I am really encouraged to see that Tyler Flowers has been hitting better at home recently. His home road splits are abysmal, but really everyone hits for crap at the Beach. That makes it all the more impressive that this team leads the league in HRs. Scott Diamond has really asserted himself this season as a solid pitching prospect. I don't know much about him yet, but I intend to find some reports about him. He is now 6-1 on the season between Rome and Myrtle Beach

Rome 5, Charleston 2

  • J. Heyward - 2-4 RBI, K
  • M. Fisher - 3-4 2 2B
  • C. Rohrbough - 6IP 4H 1R 3BB 5K

Always good news to see Rohrbough throwing a good game. I was a little worried there for a couple of games but I will just chalk it up to him being rusty or something. I haven't ever been sold on Cole being a top of the line type prospect but we obviously can't discount his stats from last year. I would still probably rank him behind Hanson, Morton and maybe Locke. Maybe. I've been a big Locke fan the past couple of seasons but his struggles this year remind me a bit too much of Beau Jones and Jeff Lyman.
