Sanchez & Flores both double in losses


RHP Corey Black said he was scheduled to throw a side session today on his Twitter feed, so whatever is keeping him on the DL can’t be that big of a deal.

Triple-A Scranton was rained out. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on June 26th.

Double-A Trenton (5-4 loss to Binghamton)

  • CF Ramon Flores: 1-3, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 CS — seven walks and five strikeouts in his last ten games
  • DH Slade Heathcott: 0-2, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K
  • LHP Matt Tracy: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 BB, 6 K, 5/4 GB/FB — 53 of 101 pitches were strikes (52%) … had allowed four earned runs in his previous four starts combined, and all four came in the same game

High-A Tampa (4-0 loss to Palm Beach)

  • CF Mason Williams & LF Ben Gamel: both 0-4 — Gamel struck out twice
  • DH Angelo Gumbs: 0-3, 1HBP
  • C Gary Sanchez: 2-4, 1 2B — third straight games with a double, fifth in the last ten games
  • RHP Diego Moreno: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 4/0 GB/FB

Low-A Charleston was rained out by Tropical Storm Andrea. They will complete yesterday’s suspended game on Monday, and a makeup date for tonight’s regularly scheduled date is TBD.

    Wow, talk about a blah night down on the farm.

    Yeral Sanchez, the Cuban defector, debuted in Tampa. 0-fer with a walk. Could be another in the Adonis Garcia/Ronnier Mustelier class.

  • Curtis

    Besides G.Sanchez & DePaula, the rest of the farm seems like a wasteland. Man, what an awful year.

    • The Real Me

      The year is still young and with Austin and Heathcott making the jump to AA (said to be the hardest adjustment), they may just need more time. I’ll wait and see before passing judgement. It’s not looking great right now, but that could change (and hopefully will).

        You are right. You have to look at the monthly splits. Heathcott seems to be on a real good trajectory. Not seeing a lot of Austin in the lineup. I wonder why? As long as these guys hit over 300 from July on, then it will be a great year. It’s all about adjustments.
