  1. Transactions: INF Mike Brosseau recalled from Nashville as Andrew McCutchen hits the Covid IL. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 1, Norfolk (Orioles) 0 Box Score / Game Log 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: Turang's Late Base Hit Lifts Sounds Past Tides - Dylan File tosses five scoreless innings as Sounds toss fourth shutout of the year Runs were not going to be easy to come by against Baltimore stud starter Grayson Rodriguez, but Dylan File and the bullpen crew were more than up to the task in matching zeroes. File simply needs a full and productive 2022 in his 2nd option season, and he's on his way, as his 1.28 WHIP thus far matches the career mark that landed him on the Crew's 40-man roster in the first place. Brice Turang is a dude, everyone. Unfortunately, no video clip of the go-ahead knock, If Kolten Wong is counting on Milwaukee to pick up his 2023 option, well, he shouldn't be. Should Wong face any type of extended absence this summer, Turang's going to get his chance. Manager Rick Sweet and Pitching Coach Jeremy Accardo have a seemingly endless line of effective relievers they call on night after night. Year in and year out, the David Stearns/Matt Arnold combo prove just as adept at building a AAA roster as they are on the big-league level. A bit over two weeks ago, Voice of the Sounds Jeff Hem interviewed Accardo, in his first year in the organization, for the pre-game show (audio). I came away impressed with Jim Henderson's replacement. We link on our forums whenever Jeff releases his weekly collection of pre-game chats, hopefully you've been checking them out -- you can catch up on all of them here. Finally, going back to Wednesday's 4-2 Nashville win for a moment, the losing Tides relief pitcher was RHP Logan Gillaspie, the 2019 Timber Rattler who was a surprise cut by the Crew in September of that year. Gillaspie persevered, latched on with Baltimore (smart move), and may have been one of the bigger stunner 40-man roster adds in all of MLB last fall. He has a 1.61 WHIP in seven relief appearances thus far, but hey, great situation for him. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes via the Shuckers' Virtual Press Box Final: Montgomery (Rays) 3, Biloxi 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers' site, game details, please review: Pair of Homers Lifts Biscuits Over Shuckers 3-2 - Frelick Records Two Hits, Scores Two Runs Don't want it too, but the word underperforming is starting to sneak into our thoughts with this Shuckers squad. There was statistical evidence that the season-opening 7-0 run was a bit of a mirage, but few of us expected the performances we've seen as of late. First off, the Shuckers have played only 26 games. We're just under one-fifth of the way through the AA season. But since we can't quite write about circumstances come August, we're left to ponder performances through May 7th. Garrett Mitchell (not singling him out, but well, kind of) is 2-for-his-last-33. Joey Wiemer's .872 OPS through 26 games is pretty, but 36 strikeouts in 101 AB's included the golden sombrero on Saturday evening. Gabe Holt seems like he's lost all sorts of statistical mojo by not being a leadoff mainstay, evidenced by his .462 OPS. Thomas Dillard is fanning in nearly 45% of his at-bats. This isn't a very deep roster -- outside of the backup catchers, struggling small-samplers Noah Campbell and Ashton McGee comprise the Biloxi bench. We're never going to see thumping Southern League offensive figures (well, Prince Fielder-Rickie Weeks-Brad Nelson sure tried in 2004 for a 65-75 Huntsville Stars squad), but the league just isn't built that way, and we need to remember that. Here's hoping for some turnarounds soon. If you wish to sample the Biscuit home runs that did in the Shuckers, Lucas Erceg was victimized here and southpaw Andy Otero here. Let's end on a high note - Joey's Wiemer's bubble gum of choice is "Bazooka". Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes via their all-encompassing Virtual Press Box Final: Wisconsin 6, Fort Wayne (Padres) 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers' site, game details, please review: Wisconsin Tops TinCaps 6-3 - Gray homers and Smith earns first pro win Catcher Darrien Miller on base all four times up out of the cleanup spot. Young man just turned 21 in March. In case you missed it in our Minor League Forum or via my Twitter feed, be sure to catch this interview with the well-spoken and fun Miller. Via WSCO's "The Show with Leo and Balky: Timber Rattlers catcher Darrien Miller Six Rattlers reached base at least twice (first baseman Wes Clarke walked thrice). I failed to note yesterday that Tyler Black returned after missing just over a week of action - he had been sidelined after a collision at first base, Black quintupled his stolen base count in one game, going from one to five. Now that's a successful injury rehab! We could dig into the box score further, but it's tough to beat the combination of the Wisconsin media crew's You Tube highlight compilation and then be sure to listen in with Chris, Kyle, and their interview guests on the easily-digestible (meaning just the right length) postgame podcast. Also, this was an excellent interview, too, and after 6'9" Russell Smith's performance Saturday, a good take -- Via WSCO's "The Show with Leo and Balky: Timber Rattlers Pitching Coach Will Schierholz (go to the 14:00 minute mark) Among those discussed - LHP's Antoine Kelly, Smith and Brandon Knarr, RHP's Cam Robinson Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Augusta (Braves) 6, Carolina 5, ten innings Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats' site, game details, please review: Carolina Comes Up Short in 6-5 Loss in Extras - Arbert Cipion hit his second home run of the season in Saturday’s loss So the first thing we had to review was why prized shortstop Eduardo Garcia had to be pinch-run for after a line drive RBI 5th inning single. It comes at the 02:18 hour minute mark at the game archive here (for MiLB.TV subscribers). There is no video specific to Garcia running through first base or anything, and when you hear Voice of the Mudcats Greg Young Jr.'s account of the situation, it seems Garcia was not feeling well, something that was hinted at earlier in the game. That's not a definitive diagnosis, but let's hope that's all it was. Cheerio, Jackson Chourio! Two more hits for the precocious youngest player in full-season ball, because by law, the youngest player must be labeled as such, especially when the talent is shining right away. Catcher Jeferson Quero is 4-for-his-last-34, because this game is hard, folks. RHP Carlos F. Rodriguez (not to be confused with Wisconsin OF Carlos D. Rodriguez) made his 5th pro appearance ever, all this spring. He was the Brewers' 6th round pick out of Florida Southwestern State JC last July, and did not pitch in Maryvale after that draft date, The bullpen let him down on this day. We'll wrap up by sharing some positive offensive vibes -- Game start times range from noon Central to 3:33 Central Sunday (yes, 3:33, those cute folks in Montgomery). I hope everyone enjoys their Mother's Day, whether in person or in memories with their loved ones. Be sure to mix in Brewers organizational baseball!

  2. Big-time hits by Eduardo Garcia and Jheremy Vargas bring Carolina back from the brink. Wisconsin can’t hold an early lead. Biloxi’s offense continues to miss Felix Valerio. A rainout saves St. Paul from another defeat to Nashville. Our young Mudcats continue to show resiliency and savvy beyond their years, again coming out on top of a bleak game, this one a 6-4 victory at Down East in extra innings. Kudos to Coach Estevez and his young squad. Unfortunately, Wisconsin took the opposite tack, squandering a 3-0 lead against Peoria, while Biloxi continues to search for its offense sans King Felix. Game Balls go to SS Eduardo Garcia, RHP Miguel Segura, 3B Jheremy Vargas, LHP Andy Otero and LF Tristan Peters. Transactions: IF Mike Brosseau was optioned from MLB Milwaukee to AAA Nashville C Alex Jackson was optioned from MLB Milwaukee to AAA Nashville Though unofficial, prospect whisperer @ARobsBrewCrew noted after the game that OF Sal Frelick is expected to be promoted to AA Biloxi from High-A Wisconsin and that 1B Ernesto Martinez is currently out of Wisconsin’s lineup with a sprained wrist Game Action: Final: Carolina 6, Down East 4 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats’ website, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Garcia Leads Late Comeback in 6-4 Victory in Extras. his was a series between the Down East Wood Ducks and our beloved Carolina Mudcats, with all six games decided by two runs or less and our team coming out with a 4-2 series victory. Like Friday’s nightcap, the Mudcats faced a formidable deficit, this time down 4-0 entering the 8th inning. But let’s go back to the beginning and acknowledge the work of RHP Miguel Segura, who gave up just three walks and three hits, including an RBI single in the second inning and an RBI double in the fifth inning. Though the Mudcat offense wasn’t ready to produce just yet, Segura was assisted defensively by CF Hedbert Perez throwing out a runner at second base and C Jose Sibrian catching an attempted base stealer in the fourth inning. Trailing 2-0, Segura handed over to RHP Carlos F. Rodriguez, who started poorly (triple, wild pitch, home run) but retired six of the following seven batters to keep Carolina within striking distance, down 4-0. Now back to the heroics. Walks by Sibrian and LF Arbert Cipion brought SS Eduardo Garcia to the place. Despite an 0-2 count, Garcia planted the next pitch over the left-field wall to cut the Wood Duck lead to 4-3. Still down 4-3, this time with two outs and nobody in the top of the ninth inning, 3B Jheremy Vargas came to the plate, hitless to this point in the night. Facing Down East stud 22-year-old LHP Destin Dotson (0.00 ERA, 0.48 WHIP, 14.8 K/9 in 10 1/3 innings entering the contest), the 18-year-old Vargas blasted a 1-0 pitch to center field to knot the contest at 4-4. HP Jakob Brustoski put in his best work of the year, striking out two in the eighth and working around a hit-by-pitch, stolen base, and walk in the ninth inning to bring the game to extra innings. In the tenth, a double by Cipion brought Garcia to the plate with 2-on, 1-out. This time, Garcia again ripped a ball to left field, a 2-run double to deliver Carolina its first lead of the game, 6-4. RHP Trevor Tietz then handled the tenth with aplomb, striking out three hitters around one walk to not even allow Manfred’s ghost to score. That’s Tietz’s 3rd save and fourth straight clean inning. Performances of Note: Eduardo Garcia – 3-5, HR, double, 5 RBIs, SB Arbert Cipion – 2-4, double, walk Jheremy Vargas – 1-4, HR, RBI Miguel Segura – 5 innings, 2 runs, 3 hits, 3 walks, 4 Ks Jakob Brustoski (Win) – 1 2/3 innings, no runs, 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 HBP, 4 Ks Trevor Tietz (Save) – 1 inning, no runs, no hits, 1 walk, 3 Ks Next week’s outlook: Our 11-10 Carolina Mudcats return home for a six-game series against the 12-9 Augusta GreenJackets. Expect RHP Brannon Jordan (3.38 ERA, 1.31 WHIP in 16 innings) to start the opening game, though we’re still wondering about the status of RHP Jefferson Figueroa. Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Peoria 6, Wisconsin 4 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, game details: Peoria Powers Past Wisconsin Down 4-1 in the series, Wisconsin and LHP Russell Smith needed a strong game and initially appeared on course, up 3-0 in the fourth inning. After Smith worked out of two-on situations in the first and third innings, the Timber Rattlers put together two doubles (Sal Frelick, Zavier Warren), a single (Joe Gray Jr.), a walk (Wes Clarke), two stolen bases (Gray twice) and a sacrifice fly (Carlos D. Rodriguez) to take a 3-0 lead. However, Smith wasn’t quite able to work out of a three-on situation in the bottom of the fourth inning. Two walks and an infield single had loaded the bases for Peoria’s 20-year-old SS Masyn Winn, who hit the first pitch, a three-run triple to tie up the contest at 3-3. {Note: We’d have to see the video to understand whether the ball fell between three defenders in shallow right and rolled to the wall or exactly what transpired.} Our shell-shocked Timber Rattlers then called upon RHP Zach Mort, who’d had an excellent month of April (0.00 ERA, 0.63 WHIP in 8 innings) but will want to forget this appearance immediately: Home run to right field Fly out to left field Home run to right-center field Home run to right-center field The Rattlers’ appeared close to finding their inner Mudcat in the 7th inning, with a left field Tristan Peters triple bringing home 2B Ethan Murray with one out. However, the team couldn’t drive him home and fell 6-4 for a crushing series loss (one win, five losses). As much as we emphasize the positives, it’s also important to note possible areas of concern. It is in this vein that we mention that the Chiefs stole another 4 bases in this contest, with nobody caught stealing. That brings Miller’s 2022 stats to an anemic two runners caught vs. 26 stolen bases. Obviously, this will be an area of focus for improvement going forward for the 21-year old. Unfortunately, we’re lacking many video highlights for the good guys this night, so let me post this one of IF Ethan Murray hitting home runs in previous games: Performances of Note: Tristan Peters – 2-4, triple, RBI Joe Gray Jr. – 2-5, double, 2 SBs Sal Frelick – 2-5, double Zavier Warren – 1-4, double, RBI Russell Smith – 4 innings, 3 runs, 3 hits, 5 walk, 1 balk, 2 Ks Zach Mort (Loss) – 1 inning, 3 run, 3 hits, 1 walk, 1 K Robbie Baker – 2 innings, no runs, 3 hits, 1 K Cam Robinson – 1 inning, no runs, no hits, 1 walk, 2 Ks Next week’s outlook: The 12-9 Wisconsin Timber Rattlers return to Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium to take on the 11-10 Fort Wayne TinCaps. RHP TJ Shook (1.37 ERA, 0.86 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings) is the expected starter for the first game, perhaps tag-teaming with RHP Max Lazar. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Pensacola 4, Biloxi 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers’ website, game details: Shuckers Fall in Sunday’s Game 4-1 LHP Andy Otero did his best to keep his team in the contest, only yielding one run (unearned) before exiting after issuing a full count walk with one out in the sixth inning. Unfortunately, Otero has to wear that unearned run however, as it was on the back of his own fielding error and two walks to load the bases with nobody out in the third inning, escaping with a run-scoring double play and a strikeout. Offensively, some solid Shuckers’ chances came and went early in the contest, with CF Joey Wiemer and DH Luis Urias stranded at second and third after a Wiemer double (first inning) and LF Noah Campbell left at second base after his 1-out double (third inning). Down 1-0, Otero handed over RHP JT Hintzen, who gave up a two-run homer to his first batter, then another double and single to leave Biloxi in a 4-0 hole. The team clawed one run back in the bottom of the 8th inning on a Urias RBI groundout to score 2B Gabe Holt (who’d singled), but that was all the offense could muster on this night. In all, Biloxi can be pleased with its pitching in the 3-3 series tie, giving up just nine runs in the last five games of the week. To balance out the Sunday video highlights, here’s Holt making a nice play in the second inning: Performances of Note: Noah Campbell – 1-3, double, walk Joey Wiemer – 1-3, double Gabe Holt – 1-3 Andy Otero (Loss) – 5 1/3 innings, 2 runs (1 earned), 3 hits, 3 walks, 1 WP, 3 Ks Nash Walters – 1 inning, no runs, 1 hit, no walks Zach Vennaro – 1 inning, no runs, no hits, no walks, 2 Ks Next week’s outlook: The 12-9 Biloxi Shuckers head out for the week to face the 9-11 Montgomery Biscuits. RHP Tyler Herb (1.96 ERA, 1.20 WHIP in 18 1/3 innings) is expected to start the first game in the series. Nashville Pre-Rain Media Notes Final: Cancelled due to wet grounds. Game will not be made up Via the Sounds’ website, rain details: Sounds Finale in St. Paul Canceled Due to Wet Grounds Next week’s outlook: First place Nashville (16-7) will be home this week, taking on the 12-12 Norfolk Tides. We’ll see which of RHPs Luis Perdomo, Jason Alexander (2.70 ERA, 1.30 WHIP in 20 innings) or RHP Josh Lindblom gets the honor of starting the opening game.

  4. There is one number that stands out above all others for this year’s Carolina Mudcats. It isn’t their 6-4 record or their 5.21 ERA. It isn’t Eduardo Garcia’s OPS checking in at .969 thus far or Hedbert Perez’ being at .510. It isn’t Jeferson Quero’s .344 batting average or Hendry Mendez’s 25% walk rate. It isn’t Israel Puello’s 6:1 strikeout to walk rate or the fact that 11 members of the roster are still to young to legally drink. No. the most important number regarding the Mudcats is simply 15, the number of the Brewers’ own Latin American signings on the team’s opening day roster. ------ When the Brewers dipped their toe back into the Dominican Summer League by sharing a team with the Orioles in 2009, to say the team was devoid of prospect star power would be an understatement. The most successful Brewers alum off that team was probably Leonard Lorenzo, who was notable for actually reaching full season ball, even if he did post a 6.13 ERA in Wisconsin in his sole season there. The following year wasn’t much better, with the best being a couple of guys like Jose Pena or Rolando Pascual who ended up topping out in High-A (and one, Rigoberto Almonte, who spent time in High-A before being demoted to the DSL). It wasn’t until the 2011 debuts of Orlando Arcia, Angel Ventura and Jorge Ortega that the Brewers actually had a member of the DSL team who ended up reaching AA. At least, though, there was progress. Then, however, it stagnated. In 2013 only two of the Brewers’ top 20 prospects on MLB Pipeline were from the Brewers’ own Latin American signings. By 2015, it was three of the top 30 and by 2017 had fallen to just one of the top 30, the already falling Gilbert Lara. And it was hurting the Brewers in relation to their NL Central peers. In 2017 the Reds and Pirates had five of their top 30 prospects from their own Latin American signings, but more noticeably, the Cubs and Cardinals had 10. The number of Latin American signings making the low-A opening day rosters ticked up slightly as the years went on, rising from three or fewer from 2010-2014 to, with the exception of two spikes, four or five from 2015 to 2021. Even in the two spike years – nine in 2015 and eight in 2018 – it felt slightly hollow. None of those players were listed on MLB Pipeline’s top 30. ---- This year’s Carolina roster feels different. Sure there are a few guys filling end of the bench or middle relief roles, but they are far from the majority. In what might be a first for any full season squad in the organization’s history, the first six spots in the batting order in the first two games were filled by the club’s own Latin American signings. And it’s a group that includes plenty of prospect star power, with Quero and Perez typically found among the organization’s top 10 prospects and Mendez and Garcia among the top 20, with Jheremy Vargas getting occasional mentions as well. Miguel Segura, Alexander Cornielle and Edwin Jimenez also have a chance to become the first group of three of the Brewers’ Latin American signings to start 10 games at the Low-A level since the reintroduction of the DSL squad. Only twice have there been even two, and in one of those cases (2017 with Victor Diaz and Nattino Diplan) both of the pitchers were 23-year-olds in one of their final seasons of team control. Based on their youth and rookie ball success, you could argue that of those who came through the DSL complex, only Miguel Diaz and Abner Uribe entered full season ball with stronger prospect credentials than this trio. All in all, the Brewers currently have 11 of their own Latin American signings among their top 30 prospects. It feels as if the hope of where they could get to when they reopened the DSL facility is finally within sight. ----- Now comes the tough part: Make sure this isn’t an anomaly. The numbers should stay high both because of the shorter draft and the strong performances by some of the recent signings. A mass substitution in a late spring training game that saw Jackson Chourio, Eduarqui Fernandez, Jadher Areinamo, Daniel Guilarte and Beyker Pastran enter with recent draft picks Quinton Low and Jace Avina seemed like a “say hello to the 2023 Carolina Mudcats event.” It wouldn’t be surprising to see Stiven Cruz, Domingo Mejia, Yujanyer Herrera and potentially a few others in the 2023 Mudcats rotation either. But the goal isn’t just numbers, it is development success. And in that area, hopefully this season is just the beginning.

Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Carolina 13, Fredericksburg 6 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats' website, game details, please review: Garcia and Cipion Homer in 13-6 Road Win - The Mudcats scored seven runs in the eighth to seal Wednesday's series-tying victory It is time to start having 'Top Ten' conversations about toolsy and tantalizing prospect Eduardo Garcia. In the recent past, shadowed by the press and excitement for fellow Low-A prospect Hedbert Perez, it seemed as though Eduardo was an under-the-radar by-line or afterthought - perhaps, a player too young to garner serious attention in those hallowed one through ten slots. I know it is extremely early in the 2022 season, but when a player flashes what Garcia is flashing daily, something needs to be said to push this conversation. To date, Eduardo typically finds himself ranked in that 10-20 range in most publications. I will get out ahead of the crowd: He is top ten. Today. There is too much swagger, skill, athleticism, and 'It' in this young man to relegate him anywhere outside this upper echelon. We've seen more than one web gem in the field (including a first-inning put out today to first - from his knees, beyond second base, on a scorched liner that one-hopped off his chest) in the five games to date. After stabbing yet another well-hit ball his way deep in the hole between shortstop and third base to claim the first out of the bottom of the second, Joey Zanaboni (Nats' primary broadcaster and MiLB.TV voice) asked: ***(If you are an MiLB.TV subscriber, tune in to the 1:25:19 mark of today's recorded game cast.)*** And, can I get a: "Hey Now!"? Eduardo has shown range, incredible explosive leaping and timing ability, and an absolute cannon for an arm with accuracy to pair with it. We see a free and easy swing, capably recognizing and mashing breaking balls out of the park while simultaneously splitting the gap for doubles when taking heat. Is the next great Brewers shortstop nipping at the heels of higher-level candidates like Freddy Zamora? I say this is a worthy question to ask. It is too early to tell, but warning flares are being sent quite high and with visibility into the partly cloudy skies of lofty projections and hopeful aspirations. I can see a future 'Big Club' infield featuring Biloxi's Felix Valerio manning the dirt between first base and second base while a maturing and even more refined Garcia is deftly handling duties at shortstop. Time will clearly define this current unknown, as it always does, but if there is one player to tune in for at Low-A Carolina, I would be hard-pressed to say any player's name outside 'Eduardo Garcia.' And, I would be remiss if I did not add: there are several compelling young players to watch on a day-in and day-out basis. More to follow as the season progresses. Final Viewing Notes: Oh, to be young! A tip of the cap to Jeferson Quero is in order. He deserves recognition when any catcher mans the backstop in consecutive outings with shortened rest - an evening to midday. As mentioned in the Fredericksburg broadcast, it would not be surprising to see Jeferson get a rest day tomorrow or man the DH spot. Will we see Jose Sibrian or Jesus Chirinos filling in as catchers tomorrow? Stay tuned. The Fredericksburg Nats' batters have taken 44 walks in 5 games this young season. This is, um, noteworthy. Yes, that's the word. Miguel Segura faced some trouble early in his debut at the Low A level - he spent 2021 dominating his DSL and ACL outings. He struggled a bit in inning one as he walked a runner on four pitches after allowing a run to score on a House single. In the ensuing at-bat, he grabbed some luck as House, hugging the second base, was uncertain if Bello was under the fly ball to deep left. He was not. The ball hit midway up the deep left-center fence and one-hopped to Bello while House held at third. Nabbing a much-needed strikeout on his best breaking ball of the early inning, he then managed to induce a hard but tricky chopper to Vargas between the pitcher's mound and the third baseline. Vargas adeptly and miraculously charged the ball, bare-handed it, and in one motion rifled an accurate throw to nab the runner at first base. Out of a rough first inning, he settled down for two more while limiting any further damage. He left the mound after three in full allowing three hits, two walks, punching three k's, and allowing the one earned run. Micah Bello continues to see the ball and is swinging comfortably and under control. His 1st inning opposite-field two-run single on a pitch up and in was not an easy hit. But, he saw the pitch, liked what he saw, and executed a highly effective inside out swing to line it to the RF grass. This is the maturation we hoped to see. Micah struggled last season at the plate: a 33.5% k rate and a near 6.6K:BB ratio. This was not ideal and, understandably, he was left off most pre-season 'Top 30' prospects lists as a result. As I consistently mention, and it truly does need to be said as the sample size is much too small, it is early. But, I am also one to celebrate small victories in hopes they will lead to stacked successes. In the early going Bello has seen that strikeout rate drop to the low 20's, albeit in a mere 18 at-bats, and his K to BB ratio dip to 2:1. He is hitting to the tune of an unsustainable 0.444 with an OPS of 1.222 (5 doubles). Here's hoping a corner of some kind has been turned. Your 2022 Carolina Mudcats have a penchant for early inning success. If you are considering tuning in, do so early or you may risk missing some meaningful output. This is two games in a row where they've jumped on the starter from the get-go and put runners on, smoking balls, and sending runners across home plate. Yesterday, the bases were loaded from the start and two runners crossed home plate by the inning's end. Today, it was 4-0 and the second and third outs were on well-hit fly balls. Tune in early. Tune in often. Arbert Cipion deserves mention as a prospect who is playing with more discipline in all facets. Like many young players, Arbert was drafted at the 21st pick of the 2018 ninth round clear out of Passaic County Technical Institute (the only player ever drafted from the school), Arbert struggled to find his footing as an offensive player in the earliest days of his professional career. COVID certainly didn't assist in any on-field growth or playing time and added a year of development missing from his belt. He's always been a solid defender with range. Originally drafted as a centerfielder, and today playing right field, Arbert showed arm strength to hold a runner on 3rd with the game still not broken open. But, he has shown more with his bat in this young season than he has in quite some time. It would appear, he is getting comfortable. Take a look at his calmness here as he crushes this home run to deep left field...over the fence, out of the stadium, and into the trees: Is Michele Vassalotti in for a resurgence with a shift to the bullpen? I don't know. But, after struggling with walked batters as a starter in Carolina last season, the early results are a bonus. Although he has hit one batter, he also hasn't walked a batter (the main culprit of his elevated 1.74 WHIP last season given batters hit to a tune of 0.237 in his 13 games started) and has struck out three in two innings pitched. *** Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Postponed For your viewing pleasure, here's a 40-second video segment proving it was indeed a postponed outing. And, so, the Timber Rattlers Wednesday game is pushed to Thursday where we'll have a double-header (see tweet above). Our very own @damuelle will be working double-time right off the bat in his first 'Minor League Report' of the young season. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Biloxi 3, Mississippi 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers' website, game details, please review: Shuckers Walk Off to 5-0 Start - Luna Allows 1 Over 5.1 Innings It was 'Bark in the Park' night in Biloxi for the only remaining undefeated team in Double-A baseball: A certain pup was indeed making itself known in the top of inning one and again in the top of the third. While concessions employees and patrons alike were fearing the worst... * The author notes, no dogs or dog owners were injured in the crafting of this post* ...it was another facet of dog 'personality' menacing the ballpark. With two down and the batter in an 0-2 count during the top of the first, there was a yapping, resounding, and consistent choir of high-pitched barks resonating from said pup. 'Fido', if that is your name, you know who you are. On behalf of the fans, viewers, and players: Go take a walk! And, with that, the internet has spoken. On to more details of the fantastic Double-AA contest that took place at Biloxi's MGM Park: After surrendering a lead-off triple, Carlos Luna continued the top of the first inning with a breaking ball strikeout in the dirt and followed it with a breaking ball swing and a miss. After walking the dangerous lefty first baseman, Lugbauer (formerly, a third baseman and catcher for the University of Michigan college baseball enthusiasts may recall), on a questionable ball 3 call I might add, Carlos finished his first frame by inducing an infield pop-up to Freddy Zamora who calmly collected the ball. It's always good to work through the early hiccups when making your first appearance of the season. It is worth noting, Mississippi stacked the lineup with lefty batters to face Carlos with the lone right-handed hitter the red hot hitting Trey Harris in the Mississippi DH slot. Facing the Atlanta Brave's #9 (MLB Pipeline) overall prospect in Freddy Tarnok (a very tantalizing 4-pitch prospect featuring a 12-6 knee-breaking curve), things didn't start smoothly for the Shuckers as the young pitching prospect worked the order three up and three down - including a four-pitch strikeout on an unexpected changeup to young Joey Wiemer. Things continued through the third inning as Tarnok held the Shuckers hitless through all three frames. Ultimately, he only surrendered 1 hit, 3 walks, and a hit batsman after his last pitch to catcher Jakson Reetz grazed off his hands. After 4 2/3 innings, Tarnok would not qualify for the potential victory. Luna, on the other hand, made it through 5 1/3 efficient innings and called it a night. Further Viewing Notes: Freddy Zamora saw fly-ball action early and often. After collecting four pop-ups in the early going, he did not see much action the remainder of the evening. I await any improvements from his throwing accuracy in the games ahead. Shuckers Media Relations Manager and Broadcaster extraordinaire, Garret Greene's update on Garrett Mitchell: "He's in good spirits but he's getting the day," seemed to hint at the young outfielder just taking the rest needed due to his recent bad luck with the baseball. Well, to close this loop, Mitchell did indeed play the part of a pinch-runner in the top of the ninth inning after Jakson Reetz opened the closing frame with a base on balls. It would appear he is on the mend, and for good measure, he scored the winning run! It's a 'Walk-Off'! Have a beer Tristen Lutz: Jakson Reetz deserves some recognition in this young season. He is playing a very very solid back stop for his pitching staff. He has shown off a cannon to both second and first base. He is also a well-built young man and he's shown an ability in the early going to surprise at the plate with some discipline and decent AB's. As mentioned above, it was his lead off walk that got the ninth trending in the right direction. Joey Wiemer had an uncharacteristic 0-5 evening. This wasn't for lack of contact as several of his groundouts were absolutely smoked. What was uncharacteristic, if we consider these first five games, was the strikeout in the early innings. I would tip my cap to Freddy Tarnok here whose four-pitch mix kept all Shuckers batters on their heels. It appeared to be the changeup that was fooling the young prospect. Fine bullpen work from Harold Chirino, Nash Walters, and Arnaldo Hernandez. Hernandez may be new to many of you and this is because he was only signed to the Brewers organization as a minor league free agent in December of 2021. This is a young man who has been in professional baseball for 10 years and is still only 26 years old. He's had his ups and downs in all levels of the minor leagues but, to date, has definitively had noteworthy success at the Double-AA level. I enjoy his mound presence, and I look forward to seeing if he can continue to pound the zone in the weeks and months ahead. He picks up the win tonight moving his record to 2-0. Kudos to Cam Devanney knocking in the original tying run on a single to right field in the bottom of the seventh inning. Cam turned 25 years old on this beautiful Biloxi spring day. That hit had to have felt good! Cam, if you're reading, I got up from my chair; took a sip of hard cider; I might have made some indiscernible utterances of joy; and I clapped. And, I clapped again. And, I clapped loudly. This isn't the celebration you deserved but it was the celebration I could offer. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 7, Gwinnett 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' website, game details, please review: Sounds Erase Five Run Deficit for Another Comeback Win - Dahl's Two-Run Blast Puts Nashville Ahead in 7-5 Victory at Gwinnett I don't know what it is with the microphone set-ups or the acoustics at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Georgia, but let me tell you: every pitch, every bat struck, and every round of applause has a resounding volume unlike any other I've experienced, virtually at least, in the years of watching minor league baseball. It's truly uncanny. And, in the early going, it was easily the most exciting aspect of Sounds baseball. This was one of those games where the players seemed to be moving at half speed early. BUT, fear not, they picked it up late in this one. Things aren't always the way you want it from the get-go in life - sports remind us of this all the time. Dylan File (#24 on MLB Pipeline's Top 30) came out, as he always does, ready to pitch and ready to rapid-fire. Who needs pitch counts anyhow when Dylan is on the mound? After a clean first inning, Dylan found the zone elusive in innings two and three falling behind too many a batter 2-0. After getting a couple of fly outs, including a rip to the deep left-center warning track Corey Ray calmly collected, he was able to induce a broken-bat ground out to end inning two. There was trouble ahead in the bottom of the third, however, as Dylan again found a favorable pitcher's count elusive. Ultimately, after some seeing eye weakly hit singles, he saw his first run surrendered on yet another weak ground ball. Weston Wilson who was incapable of corralling the ball as he dove to his right saw no play at first and then saw the runner down the third baseline. The throw home, from his knees, was a second too late. With the bases loaded, Dylan gave up a deep double to left-center field and the bases were cleared and the Sounds trailed 0-4 after three. All told, Dylan's night can be summed up this way falling behind in the count, weak or seeing-eye ground balls, a bases-clearing double, and an ineffective uneven evening. Sometimes, it just isn't your night. He left the game after a walk and a hit batter to start the bottom half of the fifth. Further Viewing Notes: I continue to be impressed by Jon Singleton's approach at the plate. I said it yesterday, and I'll say it again today: this is a Big League hitter. We are seeing his early MLB pedigree starting to shine through. He has the strength to fight off pitches late over the plate. He also has the eye and discipline to lay off most questionable deliveries. He grabbed a savvy base on balls to get on base in the 4th inning. He tacked on a hit (a triple!) and added two RBI and a run to his night. But, let's also point out another aspect of Singleton's game: he is a much better fielder than given credit for. This isn't just a big and strong first baseman, this is a big and strong athlete. In the 4th inning alone, he made two very agile plays back-to-back nabbing a hard-hit line drive to his right a mere foot from the ground while casually doubling the runner off of first. In the very next at bat, Jon stabbed a hard hit grounder that brought him over the first base line where he smoothly went to his lower left, fielded it, and stepped on the bag. We are going to see this man on the Big League club. Mark my words. Congrats are in order for David Dahl. We all know he's shown he's a capable hitter. We also all know he would have liked a hotter start to his early season. Tonight, however, he showed his stroke with his first deep ball of his early season. Take a look as he turns his hips and ropes a bomb over the wall in right field: Let's hope he continues seeing the ball like this and we start seeing his suite of offensive numbers trending up. The strength of this Sounds team would appear to be their bullpen at the present time. Unsung MVP on the evening, Hobie Harris, was the first man out of the pen inheriting File's two-men on no out mess in the fifth. After walking his first batter on a slider off the plate loading the bases with zero outs, he limited the damage to one run inducing a double-play ball and snagging a hard-hit bouncer right over his head to close the inning. There were no runs the rest of the way for Gwinnett. Appearances side-armer Trevor Kelley, Miguel Sanchez, Luke Barker, and Luis Perdomo all went scoreless. Speaking of bullpens, Braves prospect Nolan Kingham (promoted to Gwinnett during the 2021 MiLB season) impressed me tonight. He may not be on any top 30 lists, but he is an effective reliever right now. I'll be curious to see if he grabs a cup of coffee at the Braves' big league club sometime this season. All-in-all, the word for this Sounds comeback victory is: scrappy. The hits were elusive through the 7th, but, they stuck with it and had a heck of a finish. They head into tomorrow's contest with a 5-3 record. That's a wrap Brewers and Brewer's Affiliate fans. My work this week is done. However, our teams play into tomorrow and the weekend. Please stay tuned daily as @damuelleand @Mass Haas reward us with their fine works as we sit back, watch games, and catch up on all news 'down on the Farm'. Thursday April 14th: Organizational Scoreboard including starting pitcher info, game times, MiLB TV links, and box scores
  8. Sometimes, as the Timber Rattlers showed us tonight: late means tomorrow. Sometimes, as the Sounds dramatically showed us: late means absolutely nothing doing through seven innings and then a dreamy seven-spot, take the lead and shut the door end to the night. I miss my opportunity to see and report on yet another tantalizing Timber Rattlers pitching prospect in one 6'7" 255-pound Russell Smith. Still, I also check back in my most recent 'up and comer' down in Zebulon in Eduardo Garcia. Enough of the introductions; let's get into the meat! Transactions: Jamie Westbrook (INF/OF) was traded to the Detroit Tigers organization for cash considerations. We wish Jamie the best at his new Triple-AAA affiliate in Toledo. Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Carolina 13, Fredericksburg 6 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats' website, game details, please review: Garcia and Cipion Homer in 13-6 Road Win - The Mudcats scored seven runs in the eighth to seal Wednesday's series-tying victory It is time to start having 'Top Ten' conversations about toolsy and tantalizing prospect Eduardo Garcia. In the recent past, shadowed by the press and excitement for fellow Low-A prospect Hedbert Perez, it seemed as though Eduardo was an under-the-radar by-line or afterthought - perhaps, a player too young to garner serious attention in those hallowed one through ten slots. I know it is extremely early in the 2022 season, but when a player flashes what Garcia is flashing daily, something needs to be said to push this conversation. To date, Eduardo typically finds himself ranked in that 10-20 range in most publications. I will get out ahead of the crowd: He is top ten. Today. There is too much swagger, skill, athleticism, and 'It' in this young man to relegate him anywhere outside this upper echelon. We've seen more than one web gem in the field (including a first-inning put out today to first - from his knees, beyond second base, on a scorched liner that one-hopped off his chest) in the five games to date. After stabbing yet another well-hit ball his way deep in the hole between shortstop and third base to claim the first out of the bottom of the second, Joey Zanaboni (Nats' primary broadcaster and MiLB.TV voice) asked: ***(If you are an MiLB.TV subscriber, tune in to the 1:25:19 mark of today's recorded game cast.)*** And, can I get a: "Hey Now!"? Eduardo has shown range, incredible explosive leaping and timing ability, and an absolute cannon for an arm with accuracy to pair with it. We see a free and easy swing, capably recognizing and mashing breaking balls out of the park while simultaneously splitting the gap for doubles when taking heat. Is the next great Brewers shortstop nipping at the heels of higher-level candidates like Freddy Zamora? I say this is a worthy question to ask. It is too early to tell, but warning flares are being sent quite high and with visibility into the partly cloudy skies of lofty projections and hopeful aspirations. I can see a future 'Big Club' infield featuring Biloxi's Felix Valerio manning the dirt between first base and second base while a maturing and even more refined Garcia is deftly handling duties at shortstop. Time will clearly define this current unknown, as it always does, but if there is one player to tune in for at Low-A Carolina, I would be hard-pressed to say any player's name outside 'Eduardo Garcia.' And, I would be remiss if I did not add: there are several compelling young players to watch on a day-in and day-out basis. More to follow as the season progresses. Final Viewing Notes: Oh, to be young! A tip of the cap to Jeferson Quero is in order. He deserves recognition when any catcher mans the backstop in consecutive outings with shortened rest - an evening to midday. As mentioned in the Fredericksburg broadcast, it would not be surprising to see Jeferson get a rest day tomorrow or man the DH spot. Will we see Jose Sibrian or Jesus Chirinos filling in as catchers tomorrow? Stay tuned. The Fredericksburg Nats' batters have taken 44 walks in 5 games this young season. This is, um, noteworthy. Yes, that's the word. Miguel Segura faced some trouble early in his debut at the Low A level - he spent 2021 dominating his DSL and ACL outings. He struggled a bit in inning one as he walked a runner on four pitches after allowing a run to score on a House single. In the ensuing at-bat, he grabbed some luck as House, hugging the second base, was uncertain if Bello was under the fly ball to deep left. He was not. The ball hit midway up the deep left-center fence and one-hopped to Bello while House held at third. Nabbing a much-needed strikeout on his best breaking ball of the early inning, he then managed to induce a hard but tricky chopper to Vargas between the pitcher's mound and the third baseline. Vargas adeptly and miraculously charged the ball, bare-handed it, and in one motion rifled an accurate throw to nab the runner at first base. Out of a rough first inning, he settled down for two more while limiting any further damage. He left the mound after three in full allowing three hits, two walks, punching three k's, and allowing the one earned run. Micah Bello continues to see the ball and is swinging comfortably and under control. His 1st inning opposite-field two-run single on a pitch up and in was not an easy hit. But, he saw the pitch, liked what he saw, and executed a highly effective inside out swing to line it to the RF grass. This is the maturation we hoped to see. Micah struggled last season at the plate: a 33.5% k rate and a near 6.6K:BB ratio. This was not ideal and, understandably, he was left off most pre-season 'Top 30' prospects lists as a result. As I consistently mention, and it truly does need to be said as the sample size is much too small, it is early. But, I am also one to celebrate small victories in hopes they will lead to stacked successes. In the early going Bello has seen that strikeout rate drop to the low 20's, albeit in a mere 18 at-bats, and his K to BB ratio dip to 2:1. He is hitting to the tune of an unsustainable 0.444 with an OPS of 1.222 (5 doubles). Here's hoping a corner of some kind has been turned. Your 2022 Carolina Mudcats have a penchant for early inning success. If you are considering tuning in, do so early or you may risk missing some meaningful output. This is two games in a row where they've jumped on the starter from the get-go and put runners on, smoking balls, and sending runners across home plate. Yesterday, the bases were loaded from the start and two runners crossed home plate by the inning's end. Today, it was 4-0 and the second and third outs were on well-hit fly balls. Tune in early. Tune in often. Arbert Cipion deserves mention as a prospect who is playing with more discipline in all facets. Like many young players, Arbert was drafted at the 21st pick of the 2018 ninth round clear out of Passaic County Technical Institute (the only player ever drafted from the school), Arbert struggled to find his footing as an offensive player in the earliest days of his professional career. COVID certainly didn't assist in any on-field growth or playing time and added a year of development missing from his belt. He's always been a solid defender with range. Originally drafted as a centerfielder, and today playing right field, Arbert showed arm strength to hold a runner on 3rd with the game still not broken open. But, he has shown more with his bat in this young season than he has in quite some time. It would appear, he is getting comfortable. Take a look at his calmness here as he crushes this home run to deep left field...over the fence, out of the stadium, and into the trees: Is Michele Vassalotti in for a resurgence with a shift to the bullpen? I don't know. But, after struggling with walked batters as a starter in Carolina last season, the early results are a bonus. Although he has hit one batter, he also hasn't walked a batter (the main culprit of his elevated 1.74 WHIP last season given batters hit to a tune of 0.237 in his 13 games started) and has struck out three in two innings pitched. *** Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Postponed For your viewing pleasure, here's a 40-second video segment proving it was indeed a postponed outing. And, so, the Timber Rattlers Wednesday game is pushed to Thursday where we'll have a double-header (see tweet above). Our very own @damuelle will be working double-time right off the bat in his first 'Minor League Report' of the young season. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Biloxi 3, Mississippi 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers' website, game details, please review: Shuckers Walk Off to 5-0 Start - Luna Allows 1 Over 5.1 Innings It was 'Bark in the Park' night in Biloxi for the only remaining undefeated team in Double-A baseball: A certain pup was indeed making itself known in the top of inning one and again in the top of the third. While concessions employees and patrons alike were fearing the worst... * The author notes, no dogs or dog owners were injured in the crafting of this post* ...it was another facet of dog 'personality' menacing the ballpark. With two down and the batter in an 0-2 count during the top of the first, there was a yapping, resounding, and consistent choir of high-pitched barks resonating from said pup. 'Fido', if that is your name, you know who you are. On behalf of the fans, viewers, and players: Go take a walk! And, with that, the internet has spoken. On to more details of the fantastic Double-AA contest that took place at Biloxi's MGM Park: After surrendering a lead-off triple, Carlos Luna continued the top of the first inning with a breaking ball strikeout in the dirt and followed it with a breaking ball swing and a miss. After walking the dangerous lefty first baseman, Lugbauer (formerly, a third baseman and catcher for the University of Michigan college baseball enthusiasts may recall), on a questionable ball 3 call I might add, Carlos finished his first frame by inducing an infield pop-up to Freddy Zamora who calmly collected the ball. It's always good to work through the early hiccups when making your first appearance of the season. It is worth noting, Mississippi stacked the lineup with lefty batters to face Carlos with the lone right-handed hitter the red hot hitting Trey Harris in the Mississippi DH slot. Facing the Atlanta Brave's #9 (MLB Pipeline) overall prospect in Freddy Tarnok (a very tantalizing 4-pitch prospect featuring a 12-6 knee-breaking curve), things didn't start smoothly for the Shuckers as the young pitching prospect worked the order three up and three down - including a four-pitch strikeout on an unexpected changeup to young Joey Wiemer. Things continued through the third inning as Tarnok held the Shuckers hitless through all three frames. Ultimately, he only surrendered 1 hit, 3 walks, and a hit batsman after his last pitch to catcher Jakson Reetz grazed off his hands. After 4 2/3 innings, Tarnok would not qualify for the potential victory. Luna, on the other hand, made it through 5 1/3 efficient innings and called it a night. Further Viewing Notes: Freddy Zamora saw fly-ball action early and often. After collecting four pop-ups in the early going, he did not see much action the remainder of the evening. I await any improvements from his throwing accuracy in the games ahead. Shuckers Media Relations Manager and Broadcaster extraordinaire, Garret Greene's update on Garrett Mitchell: "He's in good spirits but he's getting the day," seemed to hint at the young outfielder just taking the rest needed due to his recent bad luck with the baseball. Well, to close this loop, Mitchell did indeed play the part of a pinch-runner in the top of the ninth inning after Jakson Reetz opened the closing frame with a base on balls. It would appear he is on the mend, and for good measure, he scored the winning run! It's a 'Walk-Off'! Have a beer Tristen Lutz: Jakson Reetz deserves some recognition in this young season. He is playing a very very solid back stop for his pitching staff. He has shown off a cannon to both second and first base. He is also a well-built young man and he's shown an ability in the early going to surprise at the plate with some discipline and decent AB's. As mentioned above, it was his lead off walk that got the ninth trending in the right direction. Joey Wiemer had an uncharacteristic 0-5 evening. This wasn't for lack of contact as several of his groundouts were absolutely smoked. What was uncharacteristic, if we consider these first five games, was the strikeout in the early innings. I would tip my cap to Freddy Tarnok here whose four-pitch mix kept all Shuckers batters on their heels. It appeared to be the changeup that was fooling the young prospect. Fine bullpen work from Harold Chirino, Nash Walters, and Arnaldo Hernandez. Hernandez may be new to many of you and this is because he was only signed to the Brewers organization as a minor league free agent in December of 2021. This is a young man who has been in professional baseball for 10 years and is still only 26 years old. He's had his ups and downs in all levels of the minor leagues but, to date, has definitively had noteworthy success at the Double-AA level. I enjoy his mound presence, and I look forward to seeing if he can continue to pound the zone in the weeks and months ahead. He picks up the win tonight moving his record to 2-0. Kudos to Cam Devanney knocking in the original tying run on a single to right field in the bottom of the seventh inning. Cam turned 25 years old on this beautiful Biloxi spring day. That hit had to have felt good! Cam, if you're reading, I got up from my chair; took a sip of hard cider; I might have made some indiscernible utterances of joy; and I clapped. And, I clapped again. And, I clapped loudly. This isn't the celebration you deserved but it was the celebration I could offer. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 7, Gwinnett 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' website, game details, please review: Sounds Erase Five Run Deficit for Another Comeback Win - Dahl's Two-Run Blast Puts Nashville Ahead in 7-5 Victory at Gwinnett I don't know what it is with the microphone set-ups or the acoustics at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Georgia, but let me tell you: every pitch, every bat struck, and every round of applause has a resounding volume unlike any other I've experienced, virtually at least, in the years of watching minor league baseball. It's truly uncanny. And, in the early going, it was easily the most exciting aspect of Sounds baseball. This was one of those games where the players seemed to be moving at half speed early. BUT, fear not, they picked it up late in this one. Things aren't always the way you want it from the get-go in life - sports remind us of this all the time. Dylan File (#24 on MLB Pipeline's Top 30) came out, as he always does, ready to pitch and ready to rapid-fire. Who needs pitch counts anyhow when Dylan is on the mound? After a clean first inning, Dylan found the zone elusive in innings two and three falling behind too many a batter 2-0. After getting a couple of fly outs, including a rip to the deep left-center warning track Corey Ray calmly collected, he was able to induce a broken-bat ground out to end inning two. There was trouble ahead in the bottom of the third, however, as Dylan again found a favorable pitcher's count elusive. Ultimately, after some seeing eye weakly hit singles, he saw his first run surrendered on yet another weak ground ball. Weston Wilson who was incapable of corralling the ball as he dove to his right saw no play at first and then saw the runner down the third baseline. The throw home, from his knees, was a second too late. With the bases loaded, Dylan gave up a deep double to left-center field and the bases were cleared and the Sounds trailed 0-4 after three. All told, Dylan's night can be summed up this way falling behind in the count, weak or seeing-eye ground balls, a bases-clearing double, and an ineffective uneven evening. Sometimes, it just isn't your night. He left the game after a walk and a hit batter to start the bottom half of the fifth. Further Viewing Notes: I continue to be impressed by Jon Singleton's approach at the plate. I said it yesterday, and I'll say it again today: this is a Big League hitter. We are seeing his early MLB pedigree starting to shine through. He has the strength to fight off pitches late over the plate. He also has the eye and discipline to lay off most questionable deliveries. He grabbed a savvy base on balls to get on base in the 4th inning. He tacked on a hit (a triple!) and added two RBI and a run to his night. But, let's also point out another aspect of Singleton's game: he is a much better fielder than given credit for. This isn't just a big and strong first baseman, this is a big and strong athlete. In the 4th inning alone, he made two very agile plays back-to-back nabbing a hard-hit line drive to his right a mere foot from the ground while casually doubling the runner off of first. In the very next at bat, Jon stabbed a hard hit grounder that brought him over the first base line where he smoothly went to his lower left, fielded it, and stepped on the bag. We are going to see this man on the Big League club. Mark my words. Congrats are in order for David Dahl. We all know he's shown he's a capable hitter. We also all know he would have liked a hotter start to his early season. Tonight, however, he showed his stroke with his first deep ball of his early season. Take a look as he turns his hips and ropes a bomb over the wall in right field: Let's hope he continues seeing the ball like this and we start seeing his suite of offensive numbers trending up. The strength of this Sounds team would appear to be their bullpen at the present time. Unsung MVP on the evening, Hobie Harris, was the first man out of the pen inheriting File's two-men on no out mess in the fifth. After walking his first batter on a slider off the plate loading the bases with zero outs, he limited the damage to one run inducing a double-play ball and snagging a hard-hit bouncer right over his head to close the inning. There were no runs the rest of the way for Gwinnett. Appearances side-armer Trevor Kelley, Miguel Sanchez, Luke Barker, and Luis Perdomo all went scoreless. Speaking of bullpens, Braves prospect Nolan Kingham (promoted to Gwinnett during the 2021 MiLB season) impressed me tonight. He may not be on any top 30 lists, but he is an effective reliever right now. I'll be curious to see if he grabs a cup of coffee at the Braves' big league club sometime this season. All-in-all, the word for this Sounds comeback victory is: scrappy. The hits were elusive through the 7th, but, they stuck with it and had a heck of a finish. They head into tomorrow's contest with a 5-3 record. That's a wrap Brewers and Brewer's Affiliate fans. My work this week is done. However, our teams play into tomorrow and the weekend.
