St. Louis Cardinals Daily Farm Report: Wong struggles to find adversity to deal with

Chris Trotman

In the meantime, James Ramsey had himself a multi-homer game, and Alex Reyes puts his debut control problems further in the rear view mirror.

Memphis beats Colorado Springs 15-2


It should be noted that this was at Colorado Springs, which has a similar altitude as Coors Field in Denver.

The Redbirds faced Tyler Matzek, who pitched against them in his previous start on April 30th. While he had solid K:BB numbers last time (7:1), he still picked up the loss thanks to 4 ER on 6 hits in 6.0 IP. This time his peripherals were not so strong. In 5.0 IP he allowed 8 ER, plus 3 "unearned", on 11 hits, including 2 homers, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts.

Springfield beats Tulsa 7-6


Ramsey is still striking out 20% of the time, but that's still down from 26% at AA last year, and his BB rate is still over 11%, similar to last year's 12.7%. He also leads the Texas League in home runs, and second in OPS. Teammate Jonathan Rodriguez is the leader in both OPS and Slugging.

Palm Beach loses to Jupiter 4-5


Colin Moran, recently ranked as the 67th best prospect by Jon Sickels, was just 1 for 5 in the game with 2 Ks.

  • C.J. McElroy (CF), 0 for 4

  • Carson Kelly (C), 0 for 4, Passed Ball, Threw out 2 would-be base stealers

The opposing starter was Dylan Covey , a former 1st round pick by the Brewers in 2010. He went to college after being diagnosed with diabetes, and was drafted in the 4th round by the Athletics in last year's draft. His professional track record hasn't been great but Jon Sickels ranked him as the 11th best prospect in the system, and Baseball America has him 7th.

After walking 12 in his first 8 innings this year, Reyes has walked just 4 in 15 1/3 IP. What's more, his K% in those first 8 IP was 27.5%, and in his last 15 1/3 IP it has risen to 36.2%.

Tonight's Starters:

Memphis: Tim Cooney

Springfield: Kyle Hald

Palm Beach: Joe Cuda
