  • Brewers Minor League Link Report (7/18): Recapping Two Dominican League Games

    Jim Goulart

    The Crew's minor league system enjoys a respite as the Maryvale games don't resume until Thursday, while the four-full season clubs return to action on Friday.

    In the sunny Dominican Republic, however, rookie complex league games will be played each day this week.

    Final: DSL Tigers #1 Squad 5, Brewers #1 Squad 3
    Box Score / Game Log

    Team Uno falls to 11-18 with this loss, falling despite winning the hit battle, nine-to-three, though all nine hits were singles. Brewers #1 led 3-1 after six innings, but the Tigers got a clutch two-out three-run double in the 7th to take the lead. A home run in the 9th provided the Detroit kids with the insurance run.

    As @damuelle posted on our Minor League Forum, his comments in this report are italicized -

    16-year old RHP Manuel Rodriguez has entered the radar: 4 IP, 1 R (0 ER), 1 H, 1 BB, 4 Ks in today's game. His season ERA is now 3.44 and WHIP is 0.87, although the 13 strikeouts (in 18 1/3 innings) and .212 BABIP should temper our enthusiasm for now. 

    Rodriguez is a native of Mexico and turns 17 on August 8th.

    18-year old 1B Arnys Rodriguez (.796 season OPS) reached base three times (single, walk, HBP) and also stole three bases. The switch hitter is the Brewers' 4th-oldest position player in the Brewers' chain at the DSL level, so perhaps he could be looking at a move stateside soon.

    Arnys Rodriguez turns 19 August 12th. 4th-oldest, crazy.

    Jhonny Severino, the 17-year-old baby bonus signing last January, had two hits but also two errors at shortstop, where he has struggled often. Now with nine errors in 17 games at short, and five errors in six games at third base. Plenty of time to get settled in that regard.


    Final: DSL Phillies White 9, Brewers #2 Squad 7
    Box Score / Game Log

    Phillies committed seven (!) errors but their pitchers limited the damage to two unearned runs. Brewers #2 fielders added three errors of their own (one unearned run).

    Big 2022 signing 17-year old 3B Johan Barrios had a triple, double and three RBIs, but departed in the 7th inning of a then 5-4 contest. Hopefully that was a planned exit / sharing of duties.

    There were four HBP's in this game, two on each side. Phillies attempted nine stolen bases, successful on seven.

    Add up all that activity and game time was 4:01, as we have not seen evidence of a pitch clock on the island.

    18-year-old Venezuelan native first baseman Yeison Perez was on base twice (single, HBP), and his OPS sits at a cool 1.143 through 67 at-bats, including seven round-trippers prior to Monday's game.

    Team Dos drops to a still respectable 17-14.


    We will post another report Wednesday AM, but with just one game, as the two Dominican clubs face each other in another morning affair in the Caribbean weather.
