Daily Farm Report: Tyrell Jenkins Makes His 2014 Debut and Throws 6 No-Hit Innings

Tyrell Jenkins - Brad Barr-US PRESSWIRE

Memphis was rained out, but the system went undefeated as Springfield slugged their way past Tulsa, and Palm Beach and State College routed their competition.

Memphis @ Salt Lake PPD



Springfield 6 - Tulsa 4

Notables:

Notes:

  • Tulsa took the lead in the bottom of the 1st after a runner reached on a 2 out error by Jacob Wilson and was subsequently doubled in. Wilson was apparently injured on the play and left the game. Springfield struck back with a 4 run 3rd inning capped off by a Patrick Wisdom home run, and would keep the lead the rest of the game.
  • Kurt Heyer had a solid start to the season before hitting a very ugly stretch starting around the end of April. He gave up 22 runs (19 earned) in his last 4 AA starts (16.2 IP) and walked more men than he struck out, before being called up to Memphis to shore up the Redbirds rotation. His results in Memphis weren't particularly encouraging either. Since coming back down to Springfield he's struck out 15 and walked 3 in his 3 Texas League starts and allowed 6 earned runs.
  • Springfield hitters put a lot of balls in play. The S-Cards drew only 1 walk and struck out only 3 times, and the lone walk and 1 of the strikeouts came courtesy of Kurt Heyer (who also picked up a hit).
  • Patrick Wisdom's homer was his 8th of the season, good for 2nd on the team behind James Ramsey.

Palm Beach 9 - Jupiter 0

Notables:

Notes:

  • Tyrell Jenkins made his 2014 debut last night for Palm Beach. Jenkins is coming back from a shoulder injury he suffered last year, and is the 2nd Cardinals pitching prospect, along with John Gast, to come back from shoulder surgery this month. Oh yeah, he didn't allow a hit either.
  • Sam Tuivailala struck out 4 batters in 2 innings and kept the no-hit bid alive. Corey Baker came in to pitch the 9th and retired the 1st 2 batters he faced (including a rehabbing Jarrod Saltamacchi) before Colin "Get A Brain" Moran singled to center.
  • 101 plate appearances into his Florida State League career Luke Voit is hitting .356/.426/.544 and walking at a 10% clip.
  • Every Palm Beach position player save for catcher Dante Rosenberg, who was making his FSL debut, scored a run.

State College 8 - Batavia 0

Notables:

  • Robelys Reyes (2B): 1-5, 2 RBI
  • Leobaldo Pina (SS): 0-3, R, 2 BB, K
  • Adam Erlich (DH): 1-4, 2 R, 2B, BB, K
  • Nick Thompson (LF): 0-2, R, RBI, 2 BB
  • Rowan Wick (RF): 3-4, R, HR, 2 RBI, K
  • Alex De Leon (1B): 0-4, RBI
  • Brian O'Keefe (C): 1-3, R, RBI
  • Ronnierd Garcia (3B): 1-4, R, 2B, K
  • Jhohan Acevedo (CF): 1-4, R, K
  • Luis Perdomo (SP): 6 IP, 6 H, 0 ER, 6 K
  • Kyle Grana (RP): 1 IP, 2 K
Notes:

  • The Red Baron said Rowan Wick was a "name to watch" back in February. Five games into his New York-Penn League career he has 5 home runs and an OPS over 2. You should probably watch him.
  • State College was already up 3 runs in the 5th when Batavia walked home a run, the Spikes followed up with an RBI single and a sacrifice to open up a 6 run advantage.
  • State College is leading the NYPL in runs and home runs. Rowan Wick has as many home runs (5) as the team in 2nd.
