Spring Farm Report - 3/30/13

Heading to Memphis? Who me? Not for long ... - Chris Trotman

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

This will be the last spring farm report for 2013. On Thursday, the Cardinals four full season minor league teams -- Memphis, Springfield, Palm Beach and Peoria -- will start their season. Each day we'll provide you with a recap of the action, the probable pitchers and some afternoon analysis about the minor league system and its players and personnel. Stay tuned ...

Memphis 1, New Orleans 0

  • Shelby Miller struck out 7 in 4.2 innings of work. He allowed 1 walk and 4 hits. I'd say that's a pretty good final tune up before the MLB season.
  • Eric Fornataro struck out 2 in a scoreless inning.
  • Jermaine Curtis was 2-for-3 with the games only RBI. (That might be the first time I've mentioned RBIs all spring.)

Springfield 10, Jacksonville 6

  • John Gast struck out 4 in 5 innings. He also suffered a hit parade for 2 runs on 8 hits.
  • Kevin Seigrist was lit up for 4 ER on 3 hits and a walk in just 0.2 innings pitched. He struck out 1.
  • Michael Blazek struck out the side in his inning.
  • Chris Swauger doubled twice and walked in a 3-for-4 outing.
  • Tommy Pham was 2-for-5 with a pair of triples. This is quintessential Pham. Taunt us all spring training with superlative numbers and performances. Break our hearts in the regular season.
  • Audry Perez was 2-for-5.
  • Starlin Rodriguez was 2-for-5 with a double.
  • Adam Melker doubled and walked in a 2-for-4 outing.
  • Xavier Scruggs was 1-for-3 with a double and two walks.

Palm Beach 9, Jupiter 4

Peoria 5, Greensboro 3

  • Joe Cuda allowed 5 hits in 5 innings striking out 3.
  • Zach Petrick struck out 2 in 2 innings and walked 1.
  • Patrick Wisdom was 3-for-5 with 2 doubles. In the Wisdom/Kelly race, I'm betting on Wisdom this season.
  • Breyvic Valera singled and walked.

Extended ST Red 4, Extended ST White 1


  • Anthony Ferrara had a wild final outing with 7 Ks in 6 innings. He walked 3 and allowed 4 hits.
  • Thomas Lee pitched a perfect frame.
  • Jesus Montero was 1-for-2 with a home run. Happy Easter, Jesus.
  • Carson Kelly was 1-for-3 with a home run.
  • Ronald Castillo and Brett Wiley both doubled in a 1-for-2 outing.
