Spring Farm Report - 3/15/13

A daily recap of the Cardinals minor league action in spring training.

A surprise player takes the mound for Peoria and Mike O'Neill gets back to hitting all of the baseballs.

Memphis 4, Las Vegas 2

  • Boone Whiting struck out 4 in 2 innings of work. He allowed 2 hits and 1 walk.
  • Jorge Rondon allowed a hit and a walk for an unearned run in 0.2 innings pitched. Rondon has the pure stuff to be a good reliever but lacks the command to place it consistently in the strike zone. This is still the kind of arm you give lots of second chances to, however.
  • Barrett Browning struck out 4 in 2 innings of work. He allowed 1 hit and 1 walk for 1 ER.
  • Dean Kiekhefer allowed 3 hits in 2 innings but escaped unscathed striking out 1.
  • Chad Huffman, an outfielder who has spent the last two seasons with the Indians AAA ball club, hit a 3 run home run in the first inning and would later add a double and a walk to his tally.
  • Mike O'Neill was 3-for-4 with a double.

Springfield 3, Binghamton 6

Palm Beach 7, St. Lucie 7

  • Kurt Heyer struck out 2 allowing 1 unearned run on 2 hits in 2 innings.
  • Stalyn Lopez held them scoreless in his 2 innings allowing 2 hits and striking out 1.
  • Danny Miranda was roughed up for 3 runs on 3 hits and a walk. He struck out 1 in 2 innings.
  • Jeremy Schaffer was 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles.
  • Breyvic Valera was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk.
  • Steven Ramos was 2-for-4.
  • Gerwuins Verlazco, who is making this report mainly so I can practice typing his name, was 1-for-2.
  • Carson Kelly was 1-for-3.

Peoria 5, Savannah 7

  • A 3-run home run in the 9th undid a Peoria lead.
  • Dail Villanueva struck out 3 allowing 2 hits in 2 innings.
  • Garrett Wittels allowed 4 ER in 2 innings pitched. He walked 2 and was tagged for 2 hits while striking out 1. Wittels recorded a plate appearance at 4 different levels of the system last year. This is the first I've seen mentioning his conversion to pitching from shorstop/third base.
  • Jeff Rauh allowed 3 hits and a walk during his inning of work. He was roughed up for 3 runs.
  • Luis Perez went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple.
  • Reggie Williams was 2-for-4.
