Weekend Farm Report: Jack Flaherty rattled, Matt Pearce throws solid outing, Magneuris Sierra rakes

Looking back on the weekend of farm action

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Prior to Sunday night’s series finale with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Busch Stadium, the Cardinals made a trio of roster moves, including recalling outfielder Randal Grichuk, who had been in the minors since early June. Right-hander Mike Mayers was also recalled, accommodating the placements of Dexter Fowler (heel spur) and Kevin Siegrist (spine) on the 10-day disabled list. The third move was a first-time promotion, as Luke Voit’s contract was purchased; Chad Huffman was optioned to Triple-A.

Grichuk/Mayers/Voit to St. Louis, Huffman to Memphis, Fowler/Siegrist to DL

With that, here are some notes from the weekend on the farm:

-In his start on Sunday, Jack Flaherty did not fare well in his start against the Storm Chasers. Flaherty lasted 3 13 innings, allowing five earned runs on eight hits and three walks with four strikeouts along the way.

-Recently promoted to High-A Palm Beach, Andy Young went went 2-for-9 over the weekend with a double, his first with Palm Beach.

-Ian Oxnevad picked up just his second win in nine decisions on Sunday, tossing five innings of two-run ball against the Burlington Bees.

-Bryce Denton crushed a home run for the State College Spikes on Saturday, his first long ball of the season.

-Matt Pearce turned in a quality start in Friday’s contest, lasting seven innings with two runs allowed on five hits and two walks. Pearce is 7-5 with a 2.98 ERA in fourteen starts for Springfield this season.

-Redbirds infielder (and occasional designated hitter) Breyvic Valera went 3-for-8 with a home run and two runs batted in over the weekend.

-Palm Beach outfielder Blake Drake had a decent weekend at the plate, going 3-for-13 with a pair of doubles.

-Peoria Chiefs backstop Ryan McCarvel had three hits in six at-bats, with a couple of two-baggers and three runs driven in.

-Springfield slugger Adolis Garcia had four hits over the weekend, including two more doubles.

-Magneuris Sierra went 3-for-9 this weekend for Springfield, legging out a double, stealing a base, and driving in and scoring a run.
