As expected, RHP Chance Adams has officially been promoted to Triple-A Scranton. Shane Hennigan says Adams has been added to the active roster. RHP Brady Lail was sent to Double-A Trenton to clear a roster spot.

Triple-A Scranton (12-2 win over Syracuse)

  • 2B Tyler Wade: 4-6, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 K — first homer of the season … 23-for-66 (.348) in his last 15 games … now hitting .321/.375/.427 on the season
  • RF Dustin Fowler: 2-6, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K — he’s 26-for-73 (.356) with five doubles, five triples, and three homers in his last 16 games
  • LF Clint Frazier: 1-4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 BB — he has 12 singles and 17 extra-base hits this season (12 doubles, five homers)
  • 1B Ji-Man Choi: 3-4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K — up to .353/.438/.506 on the season
  • DH Rob Refsnyder: 3-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 3 RBI, 1 BB — remember his slow start? he’s up to .293/.381/.457 on the season … we know he can hit Triple-A pitching though
  • CF Mason Williams: 1-4, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
  • 3B Abi Avelino: 1-4, 1 R, 1 HBP
  • LHP Daniel Camarena: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 7/2 GB/FB — 46 of 78 pitches were strikes (59%) … RHP Chad Green was originally scheduled to start today, so the fact Camarena got the ball instead likely means Green is coming up to be the 26th man for tomorrow’s doubleheader
  • RHP Ben Heller: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1/3 GB/FB — 25 of 42 pitches were strikes (60%) … 18/6 K/BB in 15.1 innings

Double-A Trenton was rained out. They’re going to play a doubleheader tomorrow.

High-A Tampa (6-4 loss to Clearwater)

  • SS-3B Kyle Holder: 1-5, 1 R
  • CF Jeff Hendrix: 1-2, 1 R, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
  • DH Tito Polo: 2-5, 1 RBI, 3 K, 1 SB — he’s up to .326/.387/.484 on the season … he came over from the Pirates in the Ivan Nova trade
  • LF Trey Amburgey: 1-3, 1 R, 1 BB
  • RHP Jhalan Jackson: 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 K
  • RHP Domingo Acevedo: 7 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 Balk, 4/5 GB/FB — 75 of 101 pitches were strikes (74%), plus he picked three runners off first (three!) … the 4.57 ERA is unsightly, but the 52/9 K/BB in 41.1 innings is dead sexy

Low-A Charleston (6-1 win over West Virginia)

  • CF Estevan Florial: 1-3, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 SB — got picked off third (!)
  • SS Hoy Jun Park: 1-4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 K
  • 3B Angel Aguilar: 2-5, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K — 21-year-old is now hitting .314/.373/.448 … of course, this is his third season with Charleston, so yeah
  • DH Isiah Gilliam: 3-4, 1 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K — 18-for-35 (.514) with six doubles and one homer during his ten-game hitting streak
  • 2B Oswaldo Cabrera: 0-3, 1 RBI, 2 K
  • RHP Nick Green: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 1 WP, 9/6 GB/FB, 1 E (fielding) — 55 of 93 pitches were strikes (59%) … he started his season by allowing ten runs in 6.1 innings in his first two starts … he’s allowed eight runs in 31.1 innings in five starts since
  • RHP David Sosebee: 3 IP, zeroes, 4 K, 1/3 GB/FB — 22 of 31 pitches were strikes (71%) … 30/5 K/BB in 21.1 innings for the 2015 28th rounder
