DotF: Green dominates, Fowler snaps out of slump in AAA win

Sunday Open Thread
Game 12: A St. Louis Sweep?

RHP Ben Heller is working on his slider with Triple-A Scranton, specifically making sure he uses the same arm slot as his fastball, writes Shane Hennigan. When he does that, the pitch dives down rather than sweep to the side. Either way, I’m sure we’ll see Heller back in the Bronx at some point this year.

Triple-A Scranton (3-1 win over Buffalo)

  • 2B Tyler Wade: 1-4, 1 K
  • RF Clint Frazier: 1-4, 1 RBI, 2 K — one two-hit game, five one-hit games, and three no-hit games so far
  • CF Dustin Fowler: 2-4, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 K — came into the game 4-for-32 (.125) on the season
  • 1B Rob Refsnyder: 2-4, 1 3B, 1 RBI
  • LF Mason Williams: 0-4, 3 K — off to a 4-for-23 (.174) start
  • SS Ruben Tejada: 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K — 9-for-23 (.391) with seven walks and two strikeouts in the early going
  • RHP Chad Green: 7 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 7/4 GB/FB — 62 of 92 pitches were strikes (67%) … Chad Green dominates Triple-A hitters, news at eleven
  • LHP Chasen Shreve: 1 IP, zeroes, 2 K, 0/1 GB/FB — seven of 12 pitches were strikes (58%)
  • RHP Ben Heller: 1 IP, zeroes, 1 K, 1/1 GB/FB — ten pitches, seven strikes

Both Double-A Trenton and High-A Tampa had scheduled off-days. An off-day on a Sunday? Weird.

Low-A Charleston (8-0 loss to Rome)

  • SS Hoy Jun Park: 2-4, 1 SB — 9-for-17 (.529) in his last four games … he’s repeating the level, so if he continues tearing the cover off the ball, I imagine a midseason promotion to Tampa is in the cards
  • 2B Oswaldo Cabrera: 0-4, 1 K
  • CF Blake Rutherford: 1-4, 2 K
  • 3B Angel Aguilar: 0-3, 1 BB
  • RF Isiah Gilliam: 1-4, 1 E (fielding)
  • DH Leonardo Molina: 1-3, 1 K, 1 SB
  • RHP Nick Nelson: 3.1 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 3/1 GB/FB — 49 of 81 pitches were strikes (60%)
  • RHP Adonis Rosa: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 2WP, 2/1 GB/FB — 36 of 51 pitches were strikes (71%) … 13 strikeouts and no walks in 10.2 innings so far
