Around the Minors: April 27th 2013

Al Messerschmidt

Oh, everybody's talkin' about the Birds.

Delmarva: 4 Greenville (Red Sox): 5 (10 innings)

Strikeouts and groundouts are typically a winning combination, but not so on this night for the Shorebirds. Brady Wager went 5.1 IP, allowing 6 H and 1 BB which lead to 3 ER. Along the way he managed to K 6 and induce 10 groundouts to 0 flyouts. 3 bullpen arms combined for 4 IP, 5 H, 2 BBs, and 2 ER while K'ing 8. After striking out the side (all swinging Ks) in the 9th, 23 y/o Haitian product Williams Louico yielded the winning run in the 10th via a BB and a pair of line drive singles.

Not much to write about on the offensive ledger. (SS) Adrian Marin, (3B) Joel Hutter, and (1B) Christian Walker combined to go 0-14, w/ 1 BB and 2 Ks. Roderick Bernadina went 1-4, w/ 1 run and 1 K.

Carolina (Indians): 4 Frederick: 5

University of Virginia product Tyler Wilson took the bump for the Keys tonight and was impressive in a disappointing way. 6 IP, 8 H, 1 BB, and 2 R (1 ER), w/ 11 groundouts to 5 flyouts is a nice start to a line, but 0 Ks is disconcerting. He's failed to K more than 2 in each of his past 3 starts now after posting 12 in his first 2 starts.

With no Delmonico or Brenden Webb in the lineup, there is a dearth of offensive prospects currently in Frederick. Glynn Davis remains intriguing, and he went 1-4, w/ 2 RBIs.

Harrisburg (Senators): 4 Bowie: 3 (13 innings)

Unlike Frederick, Bowie has a number of interesting offensive players. (CF) XAvery continues his hot start, going 2-5, w/ 1 BB, though he did get picked off 1B once. (3B) Ty Kelly did what he is wont to do, going 2-6. Caleb Joseph wishes to put his name in the running for potential backup Catcher following the injury to Taylor Teagarden. He went 2-5, w/ 2 doubles, 2 runs, a BB and a K. He did, however, yield a SB to Destin Hood. (OF) Henry Urrutia: 0-5, w/ a BB and a K. (2B!) Zelous Wheeler returned from the D.L. and went 1-5, w/ a BB and an RBI while helping turn 2 DPs in the infield. Not sure why he was playing 2B and Kelly was playing 3B, but hey, whatever works.

Toledo (Tigers): 1 Norfolk: 2

Most interesting performance of the night goes to Jair Jurrjens. 6.2 IP, 6 H, 2 BBs, 1 ER, 7 Ks. Certainly his best results since his first start of the season. Over 30.2 IP so far, he's posted a 2.64 ERA with a 20:13 K:BB ratio while allowing just 1 HR. Not bad. He and Fredo are doing pretty much exactly what you want your AAA depth to do.

(2B) Jonathan Schoop continues to warm up. Another hit (1-3, w/ a double) extends his streak to 9 games. LJ Hoes went 0-3, w/ 1 BB and 2 Ks. He also had an OF assist, nailing a batter attempting to turn a single into a double. Jason Pridie and Russ Canzler had 1 basehit apiece.
