  • RHP Robert Coello: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 0/1 GB/FB. Has a .51 ERA at this level. He has 24 k and 10 BB. Really picked up his value after a terrible spring training.

  • RHP Bryan Mitchell: 3 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 6/1 GB/FB. Only threw 48 pitches as he is working his way back from elbow inflammation. No walks is a positive sign, but I have no idea how hard he was hit. Overall was having a good year.
  • Graham Stoneburner: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 7/4 GB/FB.            

Hi-A Tampa lose 7-5 to Brevard County. Faced Jed Bradley who was once considered a top prospect.

  • CF Jake Cave: 2-4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  Average up to .322.

  • RHP Rafael DePaula: 2 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 0/3 GB/FB. Yay no walks I guess… All 7 runs came in one inning, and he was hit hard. Second really bad start of the year.
  • RHP Alex Smith: 2.0 IP, 2 H, zeroes, 4/1 GB/FB.         
  • RHP Nick Rumbelow: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 0/1 GB/FB.

Lo-A Charleston crush Hickory 17-10.

  • CF Dustin Fowler: 3-6, 1 R, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 2 K.  Narrowly missed a homer, but a triple out of it. He has really turned it on after going 0-12.
  • 1B Jackson Valera: 1-5, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K.            
  • RF Aaron Judge: 3-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI. 5th homer of the year, seems to be hitting for a lot more power now, and should be called up soon.   
  • DH Mike Ford: 4-5, 4 R, 4 HR, 5 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K.  Wrote about him in an individual piece, he’s really been impressive.
  • 3B Miguel Andujar: 0-5, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K.         
  • SS John Murphy: 2-4, 3 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB.             
  • C Kale Sumner: 2-5, 1 R, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K.        
  • 2B Gosuke Katoh: 0-4, 1 R, 3 K.
  • LF Brandon Thomas: 3-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI.  Really needed a game like this, his OPS on the year is less than .600. That’s unacceptable for a college player.
  •   RHP Luis Severino: 3.1 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1/2 GB/FB. Got a lot of weird bloops and weak hits off him, before giving up the one big hit.  Josh Norris said he was throwing 94-98 with a ton of changeups. So there is some positives to take away from this start.
  • RHP Angel Rincon: 3.2 IP, 3 H, zeroes, 3 k, ¾ GB/FB. Easily his best appearance at the level. 
  • RHP Cesar Vargas: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 0 K. 2/3 GB/FB.
