Daily Farm Report - 4/30/13

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

Do yourself a favor and turn back now. The farm system goes a wretched 0 and 4 on the night. It's ugly.

Memphis 7, Albuquerque 13

  • Kolten Wong was 1-for-5. Did the Cardinals move Wong too quickly? After an impressive half season at Quad Cities, Wong has been underwhelming offensively. He didn't show any of the typical left handed power increase we expect at Springfield and he's off to a slow start in 2013. It could just be that they expectations for his offense need to be revised but Wong does not look like a compelling prospect on paper. Scouting reports differ.
  • Jamie Romak was 2-for-3 with a home run and 2 walks.
  • Chad Huffman was 2-for-3 with a home run and 2 walks.
  • Oscar Taveras was 1-for-5.
  • Travis Tartamella was 2-for-5 with a home run.
  • Tyler Lyons seems determined to make me regret my pre-season ranking of him. He struggled through 5 innings allowing 5 runs on 9 hits. Lyons struck out 2 and walked 2.
  • Marc Rzepczynski allowed 2 runs on 3 hits and struck out 1 in the 6th.
  • Keith Butler allowed 4 runs in the 7th and Sam Freeman allowed 2 more in the 8th.

Springfield 0, NW Arkansas 4

  • Adam Melker was 2-for-4 with a walk.
  • Juan Castillo was 2-for-4 with a double.
  • Xavier Scruggs was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk.
  • Springfield's lineup struck out a whopping 13 times on the night.
  • Boone Whiting had a mixed outing with an error by his shortstop (Jake Lemmerman) not helping. He would be responsible for 4 runs (3 earned) in 4.2 innings on 6 hits. He struck out 5 and walked 2.
  • Ramon Delgado pitched 3.1 innings allowing 1 walk while striking out 5.

Palm Beach 4, Daytona 11

  • Nick Longmire was 0-for-3 with a pair of walks.
  • Stephen Piscotty was 1-for-5 with his 5th home run.
  • Matt Williams was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk.
  • Chris Corrigan allowed 5 runs (4 earned) in 3 innings on 4 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 2.
  • Jonathan Cornelius and Iden Nazario would both be touched up in relief for 4 and 2 runs respectively.
  • Only closer Ronnie Shaban would escape the night unscathed with a perfect 9th striking out 1.

Peoria 0, Bowling Green 8

  • Peoria's offense was terrible recording just 4 base runners: 2 singles, 1 double, 1 walk. That left them 3 for 29 on the evening.
  • Jonathan Lucas allowed 6 runs on 9 hits in 4.1 innings. He walked 2 and struck out 1.
  • Casey Rasmus got to close out the game with a 2 run 8th. He allowed 2 hits and 2 walks. One of those save the bullpen kind of outings for the catcher.
