Real life got in the way of yesterday’s post. So consider it a rainout and today’s DFR the makeup double header.

Games of Monday April 10th

Triple A: Memphis 7 - New Orleans 6

  • Harrison Bader (CF): 0-4, 2 R, BB
  • Tommy Pham (RF): 2-5, R, 2B, 3 RBI
  • Luke Voit (1B): 2-5, R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 3 K
  • Rowan Wick (RP): 0-1, K
  • Paul DeJong (SS): 2-4, 2B, K
  • Breyvic Valera (2B): 0-2, 2 BB, CS
  • Pat Wisdom (3B): 0-2, K
  • Josh Zeid (SP): 4 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 3 HR
  • Rowan Wick (RP): 2 IP, 2 H, R, BB, 2 K

Tommy Pham is one of 4 big league caliber outfielders on the 40 man roster, he’s playing very well for Memphis...Rowan Wick was able to add strikeouts to both sides of the box score, it will make these much more enjoyable if Memphis lets him bat regularly.

Double A: Midland 5 - Springfield 1

  • Jose Adolis Garcia (CF): 0-3, BB, 2 K
  • Eliezer Alvarez (2B): 0-4, 3 K
  • Bruce Caldwell (3B): 1-3, 2B, CS
  • Blake Drake (RF): 1-3, R, HR, RBI
  • Oscar Mercado (DH): 0-2, BB, SB
  • Matt Pearce (SP): 4.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 4 K
  • Daniel Bard (RP): 1 IP, 1 H

The impeccably named Blake Drake...Daniel Bard’s line doesn’t jump off the page, but as long as he is healthy and pitching I’ll take it.

Class A Advanced: Palm Beach 4 - Charlotte 3

  • Magneuris Sierra (CF): 1-3, R, RBI, 2 BB, K, SB
  • Edmundo Sosa (SS): 3-5
  • Chris Chinea (1B): 2-3, 2B, RBI, 2 BB
  • Jeremy Martinez (C) : 2-4, 2 R, 2B, BB, 2 K
  • Randy Arozarena (RF): 1-3, RBI, Picked Off
  • Jake Woodford (SP): 4.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, K
  • Brennan Leitao (RP): 2.1 IP, K

rb’s been a big Jeremy Martinez guy since the day he was drafted and so far that’s looking pretty good. The USC product has hit well in rookie ball last year and has hit the ground running after an aggressive placement in Palm Beach.

Class A: Quad Cities @ Peoria - PPD, Rain

Games of Tuesday April 11th

Triple A: Memphis - Colorado Springs

  • Harrison Bader (CF): 1-3, R, HR, RBI, BB
  • Tommy Pham (RF): 0-3
  • Luke Voit (1B): 2-3, 2 R, 2B, HR, RBI, BB, SB
  • Pat Wisdom (3B): 1-3, 2B, BB, K, CS
  • Carson Kelly (C): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, K
  • Paul DeJong (SS): 2-4, K
  • Daniel Poncedeleon (SP): 5.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 3 HR
  • Mark Montgomery (RP): 1.2 IP, 1 H, 4 K

Bader Bomb, and all kinds of bombs, really...Carson Kelly had 2 more homers yesterday than he did all of last year in Memphis...Lou Voit is hitting .556/.667/1.278 on the young season, he’s even tied for the team lead in stolen bases with 1...Tom Pham was 0-3, but friend of the DFR, tbender, was in attendance last night and tells us he flew out twice at the track...tbender also let us know that Daniel Poncedeleon was sitting 95 and touching 97 on the Autozone park gun...Mark Montgomery was sitting in the low 90s, but no walks is a fantastic outing from him, the 4 strikeouts are a nice bonus.

Double A: Springfield 2 - Midland 1

  • Oscar Mercado (CF): 1-3, 2 BB, K, CS
  • Bruce Caldwell (DH): 0-4, 4 K
  • Jacob Wilson (3B): 0-4, 3 K
  • Blake Drake (RF): 2-4, R
  • Jack Flaherty (SP): 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 4 K

Oscar Mercado looked like a genuine leadoff hitter, slapping a single, drawing walks and playing center field...The two erstwhile slugging second baseman, Bruce Caldwell and Jake Wilson, had a rough night combining to go 0-8 with 7 strikeouts...Jack Flaherty has a 10:1 K:BB ratio through his first 13 IP.

Class A Advanced: Palm Beach 12 - Charlotte 6

  • Magneuris Sierra (CF): 3-5, 2 R, 3B, 2 RBI, BB, K
  • Edmundo Sosa (SS): 2-5, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K
  • Chris Chinea (1B): 2-6, R, 2B, RBI, K
  • Jeremy Martinez (C) : 1-4, R, BB
  • Randy Arozarena (RF): 2-3, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB
  • Austin Wilson (DH): 1-3, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB, K
  • Connor Jones (SP): 5 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Magneuris Sierra is also off to a great start. Surprisingly he’s already drawn 4 walks on the year, which is almost a quarter of the 22 he worked last season.

Class A: Quad Cities 2 - Peoria 0 (7 Innings)

  • Tommy Edman (SS): 0-3, K
  • Dylan Carlson (RF): 0-3, 2 K
  • Andrew Knizner (DH): 1-3, K
  • Brian O’Keefe (C): 0-1, 2 BB, SB
  • Nick Plummer (CF): 0-1, BB, K, CS
  • Danny Hudzina (3B): 0-3, 3 K
  • John Kilichowski (SP): 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K

Peoria 3 - Quad Cities 2 (7 Innings)

  • Andrew Knizner (DH): 0-3
  • Ryan McCarvel (C): 1-2, R, HR, RBI, BB, K
  • Nick Plummer (CF): 1-3, R
  • Danny Hudzina (3B): 0-3, 3 K
  • Tommy Edman (SS): 2-3, 2 RBI, K

I was a bit surprised that Nick Plummer didn’t start the year in extended spring training after missing all of last year, but here we are. It may be a while before we know how he’s taking to A ball pitching, the Midwest League is a pretty brutal hitting environment in the early spring.
