  • Brewers Minor League Link Report (7/29): Sigh of Relief in Appleton; Sounds and Shuckers Win as Well

    Jim Goulart

    The full-season affiliates took three of four contests Friday night, with the Timber Rattlers victory especially sweet coming off a rough ten-game slide. Freddy Peralta and Jake Cousins continued successful (so far, knock wood) rehab stints. Prepare for the Sal Frelick era in Milwaukee, hopefully commencing as early as May or June of 2023 (the cynic would say once he clears the "Super-Two" arbitration calendar bar). Regardless, it was a pleasant evening, let's kick things off.

    RHP Connor Sadzeck was outrighted to Nashville. As a previously outrighted player (October 2019 by Seattle), Sadzeck has the right to refuse the outright and become a free agent. We'll await word as to if he indeed formally accepted this assignment back to the Sounds.

    RHP Jack Cousins had his rehab assignment moved from ACL Brewers Blue to Nashville.

    Final: Nashville 4, Charlotte (White Sox) 2

    Via the Sounds' site, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine:

    For everything from Freddy Peralta to Dylan File to Jake Cousins on the mound, fine infield defense, and photos from Tim Dillard's big Bobblehead and Jersey Retirement Night, please check out the Sounds' Twitter Media feed this morning.

    Roster observation: catcher Alex Jackson yet to play since his activation from the IL on July 17th. With three catchers on the big league level, and four catchers at AAA - Jakson Reetz got the start here, with Mario Feliciano, Brian Navarreto and Jackson listed on the Sounds bench.


    Final: Biloxi 10, Montgomery (Rays) 9, ten innings

    Frelick Walk-off Hit Salvages 10-9 Win in Extras - Shuckers Register 10th Walk-Off Victory

    Pre-Game Media Notes / Box Score / Game Log

    Biloxi's own Twitter Media Feed has offense from Thomas Dillard, Noah Campbell, and of course, the Sal Frelick game-ender

    Yes, it was 8-0 Shuckers after five. Wild night, be sure to dig into the summary and the links above.

    Stat observation: With Frelick reaching base five times in this contest, his OBP in 50 games with Biloxi this summer is now .391. His OBP in 21 games to start 2022 with Wisconsin? .391.

    Final: Wisconsin 4, Cedar Rapids (Twins) 0

    Rattlers Shut Out Cedar Rapids to Snap Streak Jarvis pitches six scoreless with eight strikeouts in 4-0 win

    Pre-Game Media Notes / Box Score / Game Log

    AUDIO via the Soundcloud Rattler Radio Podcast: "The streak is over! The Timber Rattlers shut out the Cedar Rapids Kernels 4-0. The victory ended Wisconsin's ten-game losing streak. Chris Mehring & Kyle Lobner go over a few of the turning points and stats. Justin Jarvis, Tristan Peters, and Joe Ayrault have some comments from the clubhouse."

    Via WSCO's "The Show with Leo and Balky (Thursday): Wisconsin Hitting Coach Nick Stanley (go to the 11:45 minute mark) - also Voice of the Timber Rattlers Chris Mehring (go to the 39:00 minute mark)

    Fitting that Justin Jarvis is the subject of Kyle Lobner's Latest "T-Rat Talk".

    Alumni observation:

    Final: Fayetteville (Astros) 2, Carolina 1

    Late Error Proves Costly in 2-1 Loss in Fayetteville The Carolina offense struck out a combined 17 times in the 2-1 loss in Fayetteville

    Thank you, Greg Young, Voice of the Mudcats for this addition to the game summary you just read -

    NOTE: Jheremy Vargas took a pitch to his helmet in the seventh and was forced to leave the game. His helmet absorbed most of the contact and Vargas is reportedly doing well.

    The fateful decider - only error #7 on the season for Zack Raabe:

    Likely over-worrying lineup observation: Catcher Jeferson Quero was the designated hitter Tuesday but has since sat out the last three games.

    Final: ACL Brewers Blue 4, ACL Guardians 0
    Box Score / Game Log

    Combined two-hitter for the three Blue hurlers. fanning 13 while walking three, nice!

    Final: ACL Brewers Gold 10, ACL Cubs 7
    Box Score / Game Log

    Gold with more walks (eight) than hits (seven). Three of the seven were two-baggers.

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

    Ugly, seven errors, so be sure to see how many earned runs were allowed by Brewer pitchers during their nine innings on the mound.

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

    Clean defense in this one, but a four-run Phillie 8th bumped a one-run Brewer deficit to five.

    Good place to remind everyone considering the need for this particular report to be a bit more streamlined this morning, that on a daily basis, we kick off a preview and an "as the games are being played" discussion thread on our Minor League Forum. Now please be aware that its volume of content will vary quite a bit from night-to-night, depending on the availability of our minor league gurus and contributions within from our posters, but you'll nearly always find noteworthy tidbits. Here's Friday night's thread.

    On Saturday, all four full-season affiliate games are in the evening, so you'll be able to sample after the mid-afternoon big-league Brewers game. The Maryvale youth play their traditional Saturday morning game against each other. Both Dominican squads will be in action as well. Hope you all have a fine start to your weekend.

    My weekend kicked off very well, sitting among so many others - for those of you who will also be in attendance at Fenway Saturday and/or Sunday, keep up the great work.

    Taking a real quick peak for our Brewers Minor League affiliate fans:

    It would appear last year's Hunter Renfroe trade darlings, INF's Alex Binelas and David Hamilton, are both playing for Boston's Double-A affiliate the Portland (Maine) Seadogs:

    • Binelas has struggled, it would appear, in 95 AB's since his promotion: 0.147 BA, 0.274 OBP, 0.368 SLG, 0.642 OPS, 38 K (33.6% adjusted k rate), 16 BB, 6 HR, 17 RBI, 1 2B, 1 3B. The Sox have him primarily at 3B with some games at 1B as well.
    • Hamilton has spent his entire season at Double-A. After a red hot April he has cooled considerably but his speed wil always play (47 steals in 51 attempts ?). 317 AB's to date, 0.230 BA, 0.326 OBP, 0.379 SLG, 0.695 OPS, 85 K (27% k rate), 35 BB, 8 HR, 9 2B, 7 3B (impressive), 30 RBI, 49 R. The Sox have essentially evenly split Hamilton's time between SS and 2B - an interesting development with a classic dash of CF (2 games). 

    Anyhow, a little update for anyone interested. Best of luck to both these young men!
