A quick run through the schedule on the farm last night. Mageuris Sierra had the standout performance on the farm for Peoria, homering and hitting a triple. Paddy Wisdom, Brian O'Keefe and Ryan McCarvel homered as well. Jake Woodford struck out 7, but had a rough night.

Triple-A: Iowa 7 - Memphis 2

  • Breyvic Valera (2B): 0-5
  • Harrison Bader (CF): 1-4, RBI, BB, 3 K, SB
  • Jose Martinez (LF): 1-4, 2B, 2 K
  • Mike Ohlman (C): 0-4, K
  • Patrick Wisdom (3B): 1-4, R, RBI, HR, K
  • Kurt Heyer (SP): 5.1 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 3 BB, 3 K, 1 HR
  • Thomas Lee (RP): 2.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 K, 1 HR

Breyvic Valera continues his quest to BABIP his way back into relevance...Patrick Wisdom has had a rough go of it in his first exposure at AAA. Of particular concern is the disappearance of his home run power, his homer last night was only his 4th of the year.

Class A: Wisconsin 8 - Peoria 7

  • Magneuris Sierra (CF): 2-5, 2 R, 3B, HR, 2 RBI
  • Jose Martinez (SS): 1-4, R, 2B, RBI, K
  • Eliezer Alvarez (2B): 2-5, R, RBI, K, 2 SB
  • Brian O'Keefe (PH): 1-3, R, HR, RBI, 2 BB, 2 K
  • Jose Godoy (C): 2-5, R, 2B, K
  • Jake Woodford (SP): 3.2 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 1 BB, 7 K, 1 HR
  • Tyler Bray (RP): 2.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 5 K

Hey Mageuris Sierra is back! Baseball Prospectus had a piece on him last Friday (free article)...Mags Sierra, Jose Martinez, Eliezer Alvarez and O'Keefe/Godoy/Chinea is a pretty nice group of up the middle players...Woodford had a bit of a rough start last night, and his numbers this year don't blow you away, but he is holding his own for a guy who will spend all of his age 19 season in A ball.

Class A Short Season: Mahoning Valley 4 - State College 2

  • Tommy Edman (SS): 1-4, R, 2B, K
  • Vince Jackson (DH): 1-4, RBI, SB
  • Ryan McCarvel (C): 1-4, R, HR, RBI, 2 K
  • Elier Rodrieguez (1B): 1-4, 2 K, SB
  • Carson Cross (SP): 5 IP, 7H, 4 R, 3 BB, 4 K

Rookie: Johnson City 5 - Kingsport 3 (7 Innings)

  • J.R. Davis (2B): 1-3, R, BB
  • Allen Cordoba (SS): 1-2, R, BB, K, SB
  • Matt Fiedler (LF): 2-4, 2 R, RBI, K, SB
  • Andrew Knizner (C): 1-3
  • Hunter Newman (1B): 1-3, R, HR, 2 RBI, K
  • Bryce Denton (3B): 1-2, RBI, BB
  • Daniel Castano (SP): 5.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Bryce Denton is putting up a roughly league average line in the GCL, but the lack of power is a bit concerning, since power is supposed to be his carrying too.

Rookie: Kingsport @ Johnson City - PPD (Power Outage)
