St. Louis Cardinals Prospect Report: Tilson Has A Big Night and McKenry Homers For Memphis

New, comments
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Charlie Tilson had a big night for the Redbirds, but it was a tough night for the system overall as all of the full season affiliates lost.

Triple-A: New Orleans 8 - Memphis 7

  • Charlie Tilson (LF): 3-5, 3 R, HR, RBI, SB
  • Michael McKenry (C): 1-2, 3 R, HR, RBI, 3 BB, SB
  • Randal Grichuk (CF): 1-5, 2B, 2 RBI, K
  • David Washington (1B): 0-4, BB, 2 K
  • Alex Reyes (SP): 3.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR
  • Kurt Heyer (RP): 2.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 5 BB, 4 K
  • Corey Littrell (RP): 1.2 IP, 1 K

Chuck Tilson's big game has him flirting with a league average line in the PCL. He is also posting career bests in BB%, K%, and ISO...This was the bad version of Alex Reyes again, he needed 85 pitches to retire 11 batters.

Class A Advanced: Fort Myers 3 - Palm Beach 2

  • Darren Seferina (2B): 1-4, 3B, R, K
  • Blake Drake (CF): 1-4, R, RBI, BB
  • Casey Grayson (1B): 1-4, 2B, RBI, K
  • Oscar Mercado (SS): 0-3
  • Ian McKinney (SP): 5.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 4 K

Casey Grayson has the 3rd best wRC+ on the team and it is mostly being buoyed by his 17% walk rate...Oscar Mercado's struggles continue, but without anybody in Peoria beating down the door, the organization may continue to let him struggle for a bit longer.

Class A: Beloit 4 - Peoria 3 (12 Innings)

  • Mageuris Sierra (CF): 2-6, R, K, 2 CS
  • Edmundo Sosa (SS): 3-4, R, K
  • Eliezer Alvarez (2B): 1-4, 2B, BB, K, CS
  • Chris Chinea (1B): 3-5, 2 2B, RBI
  • Juan Perez (SP): 4.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 6 BB, 4 K
  • Nick Frey (RP): 2.1 IP, 3 H, 3 K

The Peoria offense hasn't been great this year. Most of the hitters have put up fairly average lines, the only three standout offensive performances so far have been from O'Keefe, Alvarez and Chinea.

Class A Short Season: Brooklyn 6 - State College 2

  • Tommy Edman (2B): 0-4, K
  • Ryan McCarvel (DH): 1-4, K
  • Danny Hudzina (3B): 1-3, K
  • Carter Cross (SP): 5 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Rookie: Johnson City 2 - Elizabethton 0

  • Allen Cordoba (SS): 1-3, 2B, RBI, 2 K
  • Bryce Denton (3B): 0-3, 2 K
  • Andrew Knizner (C): 0-2
  • Shane Billings (CF): 0-2, BB
  • Matt Fiedler (LF): 0-1, K
  • Daniel Castano (SP): 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Rookie: Johnson City 3 - Elizabethton 1

  • Allen Cordoba (SS): 1-3, 2B, RBI, 2 K
  • Bryce Denton (3B): 0-3, 2 K
  • Andrew Knizner (C): 0-2
  • Shane Billings (CF): 0-2, BB
  • Matt Fiedler (LF): 0-1, K
  • Daniel Castano (SP): 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Gulf Coast League: GCL Cardinals 5 - GCL Astros 1

  • Delvin Perez (SS): 1-5, K
  • Dylan Carlson (LF): 1-1, R
  • Carlos Talavera (CF): 2-3, R, 2B, 2 RBI
  • Alvaro Seijas (SP): 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 3 K
