  • Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/24): Nashville Rolls at Home, Wisconsin Rallies on the Road

    Jim Goulart

    You'll notice our headline focuses on two of the four Milwaukee affiliates, and you'd be correct in assuming things didn't go quite as well for their counterparts as Biloxi and Carolina fell. There are always individual performances to highlight, however, and you'll see that happen throughout this latest version of our daily recap. Here we go!

    It's our daily review of the Brewers' minor league system, but these major league rehab assignments are of importance. As was noted in the game summary you just reviewed:

    Luis Urias went 0-for-4 in his first game on rehab assignment and made a great sliding play at third base. Luke Voit reached three times in the fourth game of his rehab assignment. Voit is hitting .100 (1-for-10) with a .500 on-base percentage for Nashville.

    Seven walks and a HBP get Voit to the .500 OBP.

    In 19 games this month, Jon Singleton's line is .284/.398/.554 (.952 OPS). Singleton's status in the organization remains hinged on Rowdy Tellez' health, but he'd be a very suitable fill-in if needed, 40-man roster spot necessary. 

    It hasn't been glamorous, but OF Blake Perkins' Nashville tenure has been subtly effective through 30 games, .292/.377/.425 (.802 OPS).

    RHP Pedro Fernandez celebrated his last day of being 28 years old with the quality start. A reminder that his only professional regular season outings between 2019 and 2022 were 13 Mexican league games (unaffiliated) in 2019, a very unique success story this season.

    LHP Clayton Andrews has a strong rooting following among Brewers' prospect-watchers, but there's such a long line of 40-man roster relievers at this time, and Andrews isn't among them. The Brewers still have another year of control in 2024 over the plucky and talented southpaw.

    Final: Montgomery (Rays) 7, Biloxi 3

    A reminder to frequent the archived pre-game interview page - Development Coach Christian Correa and OF Tristen Lutz are recent additions. LHP Nick Bennett's chat will be added by end-of-day Thursday.

    Biloxi bats fanned 16 times, and we all look forward to the return of traditional muddied baseballs in the season's second half. So frustrating not being able to get accurate scouting reads on both sides of the ball.

    There are six players on the big-league 40-man roster by way of the 60-day IL, including fairly-soon-to-return Luis Urias. That means players will have to come off the 40-man as players return, and RH reliever Cam Robinson is not aiding his own cause in making sure his spot is secure. Robinson's performance prompted a bit of discussion posts within our nightly gameday thread.

    Despite just one walk and one HBP, Biscuit batters drove RHP Justin Jarvis' pitch count to 97, limiting him to five innings.

    RH reliever Robbie Baker's age 28 season has been strong through 12 appearances.

    Jackson Chourio is 0-for-14 (three walks) in his last four games, .675 OPS on the season.

    Final:  Wisconsin 4, Cedar Rapids (Twins) 2, ten innings

    Everyone in the starting lineup reached base at least once. Catcher Alex Hall singled twice and walked.

    All four hurlers were effective as the box (and final score) indicate. This was a much-needed performance for 21-year-old RHP Alexander Cornielle, flashing the form from a few of his April starts. It is so easy to overlook just how young the international signings still are when they make their way to full-season affiliates.

    RH reliever Brannon Jordan turns 25 in July and should have no difficulty moving into the closer role vacated by promoted Kaleb "Bo" Bowman. Jordan (2021 9th round, University of South Carolina) has a sub-1.00 WHIP and was among the Crew prospects in Australia this past winter.

    Final: Down East (Rangers) 5, Carolina 4

    Early Error Proves Costly in 5-4 Loss to Down East - Jose Sibrian hit his first home run of the season in the loss

    Box Score / Game Log

    The Wood Ducks are the Mudcats' Lex Luthor. Our playoff-starved affiliate needs to bounce back in this series to avoid losing ground in the first-half division race.

    Switch-hitting 18-year-old CF Luis Lara doubled, singled, and walked, and as one of our thread posters astutely noted, has an eye-popping K-to-BB ratio, or as we should note, BB-to-K ratio.

    If you rundown that position player lineup in the box score, you'll see that once again (harking back to 2022), nine are natives of Venezuela. RF Kay-lan Nicasia was born in the Netherlands and drafted out of a Florida high school.

    Of all the healthy position players currently on the Carolina roster, only 3B Luke Adams and OF Jace Avina were born in the U.S. On the flip side, among the 15 healthy pitchers, only five are products of the international scene (three Dominican Republic, two Venezuela).

    Eight oft-injured years in the system for catcher Jose Sibrian (includes losing the pandemic season), yet the defensive stalwart is only in his age-24 campaign. This was career home run #7:

    It's all about young guns on the mound Thursday - Robert Gasser for Nashville, still-just-24-year-old Tobias Myers in Biloxi, Edwin Jimenez and his shiny Midwest League ERA for Wisconsin, and Jacob Misiorowski before the home crowd in Zebulon. We're going to welcome back our @Joseph Zarr for the next two evenings after a brief stint on the inactive list (he's fine, his internet wasn't!). Have a great Thursday, folks!
