Daily Farm Report: Germano cools off Memphis, Springfield hitters stay hot, and Joe Cuda's snowman

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

Affiliates go 1-2 on the day with Peoria getting rained out at home against the Cedar Rapids Kernals. The game will be made up as a doubleheader in Cedar Rapids later in the season.

Round Rock 6 Memphis 2

Notables:

Notes:

  • Oscar Taveras was back in the lineup after missing a game due to a turned left ankle.
  • Justin Germano scattered 6 hits over 7 innings for Round Rock while striking out five.  The sole run was unearned due to an Alex Buchholz error.
  • Whiting had his first poor outing of the season, giving up 4 extra base hits in his 4 innings of work.

Springfield 8 NW Arkansas 2


Notables
Notes:
  • Diaz got a night off in the field and continued to rake at the plate. Two singles and his fourth stolen base on the season.
  • Wisdom committed his 7th error in the first month of the season. For a guy who came into the season with a ton of praise for his defense, he's certainly not looked it thus far in the year -- and he's not hitting either.
  • The Overlord's sleeper pick of the year, David Popkins, is currently hitting .147 in April.

St. Lucie 15 Palm Beach 5

Notables:

Notes:

  • Matt Williams continues to play himself into the lineup with his bat -- between he and Valera, they'd make one heck of a set of utility players
  • Valera was hitless for just the second time all season.
  • Anthony Garcia, my pick to break out this year, is currently hitting .171
  • Robert Stock was excellent in relief of Cuda and the only guy who did a decent job of holding off the St. Lucie bats. He now has 16 innings in 7 appearances, with 15 walks to just 10 strikeouts -- not exactly what you're looking for in a relief pitching prospect.

Today's Probables (Cardinal affiliates in bold):

  • Memphis (Castro) @ Round Rock (Feierabend)
  • Springfield (Heyer) @ Arkansas (Sappington)
  • Palm Beach (Lee) @ Fort Myers (Berrios)
  • Quad Cities (Emanuel) @ Peoria (Reed)
