Daily Farm Report: Wong, Grichuk, and Ramsey provide the offense, Cooney tosses another gem, Heyer struggles

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Only two games on the docket for Mother's Day, so hopefully everyone in the low minors was able to call their mom today. If not -- shame on you, boys, what ELSE did you have to do today anyway?

Memphis 5 - Round Rock 1

Notables:
Notes:
  • Wong stole his 5th base in two weeks; he's slashing .327/.373/.436 since being sent down and has reached base at least once in all 13 games with AAA Memphis.
  • Grichuk picked right up where he left off before his inaugural sting in the majors, stroking a two run dinger in the 1st inning and following up with his 9th and 10th doubles of the PCL season later on in the contest.
  • Tim Cooney threw 5.2 innings of solid baseball, inducing 7 ground ball outs in addition to his 4 K's, but still struggled a bit with control in walking 3 and uncorking a wild pitch as well.

Northwest Arkansas 9  - Springfield 8

Notables:
Notes:
  • James Ramsey provided a good chunk of the offense for the second straight day and pushed his OPS to .932 with a great weekend at the plate. He'd probably be in AAA for any other organization given his age and talent, but the logjam in Memphis will continue to keep him in Springfield unless he figures out how to play second base.
  • Don't look now, but Cody Stanley is jumping back on the prospect radar: .318/.347/.455 so far this season in AA including a .463/.500/.707 tear in his last 10 games with both of his home runs coming in that span. He's also 5 for 5 stealing bases and is a left handed hitting catcher who is solid defensively. The organization certainly needed some catchers to emerge a bit this year and both Stanley and Audrey Perez at Memphis have played very well the first 6 weeks of the season.
  • That's three bad outings in the row for Kurt Heyer: 13 ER, 14 H, and 4 HR in his last 13 IP. Perhaps he's just struggling a bit lately, but when you rely on deception and pitchability like Heyer does and don't have any plus stuff, these are the kind of spurts of inconsistency you're going to have.

Probables for Monday, 5/12/2014:

Round Rock (McCutchen) v. Memphis (TBD)

Springfield (Hald) v. Tulsa (R. Castillo)

Dunedin (Graveman) v. Palm Beach (TBD)

Peoria (Alex Reyes) v. Cedar Rapis (Montanez), Game 1

Peoria (TBD) v. Cedar Rapids (Mildren), Game 2
