Ryan Helsley Makes His Springfield Debut

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals-Media Day
Memphis Utility Man Breyvic Valera
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Triple A: Reno 10 - Memphis 5

  • Breyvic Valera (LF): 3-5, R, HR, 3 RBI
  • Nick Martini (RF): 1-4, BB
  • Alex Mejia (3B): 2-4, R, BB
  • Aledmys Diaz (SS): 1-4, R, 2B, RBI, K
  • Patrick Wisdom (3B): 2-4, 2B, RBI, SB
  • Jose Adolis Garcia (CF): 1-4, R, 2 K
  • Matt Pearce (SP): 4 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HR
  • Mike Mayers (RP): 2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 4 K

Breyvic Valera has as many walks (27) as strikeouts this season. I realize he homered last night, but he’s pretty close to a Zero True Outcomes player...Aledmys Diaz has still only walked once in AAA this year...Patrick Wisdom’s wRC+ actually dipped down below Velera’s for the season...Mike Mayers has 11 strikeouts and 0 walks in 10 innings since converting to relief pitching.

Double A: Tulsa 5 - Memphis 4

  • Randy Arozarena (LF): 0-4, K
  • Oscar Mercado (CF): 1-4, R, HR, RBI
  • Darren Seferina (2B): 0-4, 3 K
  • Andrew Knizner (C): 1-4, RBI, K
  • Tommy Edman (SS): 1-4, 2B, RBI, K
  • Magneuris Sierra (PH): 0-1, K
  • Ryan Helsley (SP): 4 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 6 K

Oscar Mercado has 2 homers in his last 3 games to push his wRC+ up to 112, before Sunday his last home run had been in June 29th...Tommy Edman is starting to claw his way back up to a decent batting line after a brutal start in AA, and his K% is starting to look more like his Peoria number than the 22% he posted in Palm Beach...Ryan Helsley needed 92 pitches to get through 4 innings in his Texas League debut.

Class A Advanced: Palm Beach 7 - Bradenton 4

  • Blake Drake (CF): 0-4, BB, 2 K
  • Thomas Spitz (RF): 1-4, R, BB, K
  • Chris Chinea (C): 1-4, R, BB
  • Andy Young (DH): 0-4, BB, K
  • Jose Martinez (SS): 1-3, 2B, RBI, BB, K
  • Jake Woodford (SP): 3.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 4 BB, 1 K

Chris Chinea is posting K, BB, and power numbers similar to his solid seasons in rookie ball and the Midwest League, but his BABIP is 55 points lower than it was last season in Peoria. His game is contact driven so he’ll need to keep running high BABIPs as he climbs the ladder...Jake Woodford was almost as inefficient as his Springfield counterpart. He threw 84 pitches, but was unable to escape the 4th inning.

Class A: Peoria 9 - Wisconsin 3

  • Nick Plummer (DH): 0-3, R, 2 BB, 2 K
  • Stefan Trosclair (1B): 1-3, 2 K
  • Kramer Robertson (PH-SS): 1-1, R, HR, RBI
  • Danny Hudzina (SS-3B): 1-2, 3 R, 2 BB
  • Juan Yepez (3B-1B); 3-5, 2 R, 2B, RBI
  • Dylan Carlson (CF): 0-2, R, 2 BB
  • Frederis Parra (SP): 6 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
  • Yeison Medina (RP): 1 IP, 1 K

Class A Short-Season: State College 5 - Auburn 3

  • Edwin Figuera (SS): 2-5, 2 R, 3B, K
  • Scott Hurst (CF): 2-5, R, HR, 3 RBI
  • Josh Lopez (C): 1-3, BB, K
  • Bryce Denton (LF): 1-4, K
  • Jonathon Mulford (SP): 5.2 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 4 BB, 1 K

Rookie: Pulaski 6 - Johnson City 5

  • Carlos Talavera (CF): 3-5, 2 R, HR, RBI, K, CS
  • Delvin Perez (DH): 1-3, BB, K
  • Luis Bandes (1B): 2-4, R, K
  • Walker Robbins (LF): 0-4, 2 K
  • J.D. Murder (2B): 0-3, R, BB, 2 K
  • Jacob Schlesener (SP): 0.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 1 K

Rookie: DSL Cardinals 2 - DSL Mets1 0
