Daily Farm Report: Vaughn Bryan Makes His Full Season Debut

Memphis Starter Zach Petrick - Stacy Revere

The bats went cold last night, only Springfield was able to put together much offense. Despite strong starts from Petrick and Hald the system went 1-3.

Colorado Springs 1 - Memphis 0

  • Zach Petrick cruised through his 7 innings. It was his longest outing in the PCL and also his only scoreless start at AAA to date.
  • There was little in the way of highlights for the Memphis offense. They squandered an opportunity with the bases loaded in the 2nd, and had Randal Grichuk at the plate with runners on 2nd and 3rd in the 5th but couldn't push a run across. They had 1 final opportunity in the 9th, with 2 on and 1 out Luis Mateo grounded into an inning ending double play.
  • Oscar Taveras's double was his team leading 12th. Scott Moore added his 11th double to remain right on his heels.

Springfield 6 - Arkansas 2

  • Mike O'Neill (LF): 1-3, 2 R, 2B, RBI, BB
  • Jacob Wilson (3B): 1-3, R, RBI, BB
  • Cody Stanley (C): 2-3, R, 2B, RBI, BB
  • David Popkins (RF): 1-4, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K
  • Patrick Wisdom (DH): 1-4, RBI, K, SB
  • Greg Miclat (2B): 1-2, R, 2 BB
  • Kyle Hald (SP): 7 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K
  • Lee Stoppelman (RP): 1 IP, BB, K
  • Joey Donofrio (RP): 1 IP, 1 K


  • Arkansas jumped on Springfield starter Kyle Hald early, scoring a run in each of the 1st 2 innings. Hald settled in after that shutting the Travelers out and striking out 7 batters over the next 5 innings.
  • Just as Hald was settling in the Springfield offense got to work on Arkansas starter Mark Sappington. The S-Cards picked up 6 hits and scored 5 runs in the 3rd and 4th innings to take the lead for good.

Tampa 2 - Palm Beach 0

  • Breyvic Valera (2B): 0-3
  • Starlin Rodriguez (RF): 0-3, K
  • David Washington (1B): 1-3, 2 K
  • Nick Martini (CF): 0-2, BB
  • Nick Petree (SP): 4 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 6 K
  • Kyle Barraclough (RP): 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, O ER, BB
  • Sam Tuivailala (RP): 1 IP, 2 K
  • Josh Lucas (RP): 2 IP, 1 BB, 1 K
  • There weren't any offensive highlights for Palm Beach. They could only muster 1 hit and 1 walk as 4 Yankee pitchers combined to shut them out.
  • Nick Petree only allowed 2 hits and 1 run, but he walked 4 and struck out 6 of the batters he faced and was only able to make it through the 4th.
  • Josh Lucas made his 2014 full season debut. He threw 2 scoreless innings and combined with Sam Tuivailala to blank Tampa for the final 3 frames.

Clinton 8 - Peoria 2

  • C.J. McElroy (CF): 1-4
  • Vaughn Bryan (DH): 1-3, BB, K
  • Juan Herrera (SS): 1-4, RBI, R
  • Ronald Castillo (RF): 0-3, BB
  • Carson Kelly (C): 0-2, 2 BB
  • Jimmy Bosco (LF): 0-4, R
  • Richy Pedroza (2B): 0-3, R, BB
  • Alex Reyes (SP): 3.2 IP, 4 H, 8 ER, 6 BB, 4 K, HR
  • Chris Perry (RP): 4.1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 9 K
  • The beginning of the game was a disaster for The Chiefs. Alex Reyes needed 87 pitches to get through 3.2 IP, and walked 6 and hit 2 men along the way. He was on the hook for all 8 runs, although 3 of those men came in to score after he had already been removed.
  • Peoria manager Joe Kruzel was ejected in the bottom of the 4th.
  • Chris Perry continues to be used in a multi-inning relief role, and thus far the results have been encouraging. He has struck out 37 and walked 9 in 26 innings. Last year as a starter he walked 20 and struck out 55 in 70.2 innings across two levels.
  • Monday night was also the full season debut for Peoria outfielder Vaughn Bryan. Bryan, you may remember, was a surprising entry on Baseball Prospectus writer Jason Parks' list of the Cardinals top 10 prospects. For a refresher you can read Jason Parks' article (subscription only) at Baseball Prospectus or read fourstick's writeup here at VEB. Jason Parks was good enough to make an appearance in the comment section of the VEB article to share his thoughts on Bryan.
