Spring Farm Report - 3/14/13

A daily recap of the minor league happenings in the Cardinals farm system.

Just a reminder - the stats are courtesy of the Cardinals coaching staff and front office. Any editorializing is the author's.

A rather subdued day on the farm. David Medina makes a splash and Tyrell Jenkins sees some action.

Memphis 6, New Orleans 7

  • Scott McGregor pitched 2 innings allowing 2 runs on 2 hits. He struck out 2.
  • Deryk Hooker walked 3 in 2 innings of work but escaped unscathed.
  • Heath Wyatt was tagged for 4 runs on a grand slam in his inning of work. He struck out 1.
  • Tommy Pham -- who is still in the organization -- walked and scored a run.
  • Jermain Curtis had two hits and a walk.
  • Starlin Rodriguez doubled.

Springfield 12, Jacksonville 7

  • Seth Blair pitched 2 innings with 1 hit and struck out 3. It's rather self-evident but the walk rate will be the leading indicator of Blair's potential this year.
  • Ryan Sherriff allowed 3 unearned runs on 3 hits in 2 innings pitched. He struck out 1.
  • Willy Paulino struck out 3 in an inning of work allowing 1 hit and 1 walk.
  • Adam Melker was perfect at the plate going 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles.
  • Patrick Wisdom was 1-for-1 with a walk. Wisdom played last season at Batavia after being drafted. Quad Cities would be the logical next step but it would be interesting to see him jump to Palm Beach.
  • James Ramsey was 1-for-3 and provided excellent leadership.
  • David Medina had himself a day. The first baseman hit 2 home runs and went 3-for-5 with 5 RBIs.
  • Michael Swinson was 3-for-4 with a walk.
  • Nick Longmire walked and had a solo home run.
  • Tyler Rahmatulla walked twice.

Palm Beach 3, Jupiter 0

  • Tim Cooney threw 2 innings allowing 2 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 2.
  • Control artist Kyle Hald struck out 2 and allowed 2 hits in 2 innings of work.
  • Jonathan Cornelius pitched 2 perfect innings and struck out 2.
  • Dixon Llorens struck out 4 over 2 innings allowing 1 hit.
  • Converted shortstop Yunier Castillo struck out 1 and walked 1 in 1 IP.
  • Breyvic Valera singled.
  • Carson Kelly walked.
  • Roberto de la Cruz went 2-for-2 with a double.
  • Ildemaro Vargas doubled.

Peoria First Team 2, Greensboro 2
