  1. Although promising nights turned sour for Carolina, Biloxi and Wisconsin on Thursday night, that means there were a number of solid performances as well. Hopefully the young men can take some inspiration from Nashville, which put men on base all night and eventually snatched victory from defeat. The stars of the night were Wisconsin’s exciting prospect LHP Antoine Kelly, who dutifully bounced back from his shortest stint of the season (3 IP on April 29th) to dominate the TinCaps for 5 innings and AAA Nashville’s bullpen which blanked Norfolk for 5 1/3 innings to give the offense a chance. Game Balls go to Kelly, C Jeferson Quero, 1B Thomas Dillard, RHP Trevor Kelley and OF Jonathan Davis. Transactions: C Jesus Garcia assigned back to ACL Brewers Gold from AAA Nashville (he’d been moved to Nashville 6 days earlier, but didn’t see any action) Game Action: Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Augusta 10, Carolina 5 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: Mudcats Waste Early Lead in 10-5 Loss Things looked rosy early in this game, as RHP Edwin Jimenez worked around a first-inning triple and walk, then six of the first seven Mudcats reached base in the bottom of the inning. The inning’s big hit was C Jeferson Quero’s first home run of 2022, a 3-run blast to score CF Jackson Chourio and 1B Jesus Chirinos. In all, Carolina led 5-0 after the first. Things looked rosy early in this game, as RHP Edwin Jimenez worked around a first-inning triple and walk, then six of the first seven Mudcats reached base in the bottom of the inning. The inning’s big hit was C Jeferson Quero’s first home run of 2022, a 3-run blast to score CF Jackson Chourio and 1B Jesus Chirinos. In all, Carolina led 5-0 after the first. Unfortunately, the Mudcat bats went to sleep from there and could not be awoken when needed, as the team failed to register any hits from the 2nd through the 9th inning, going 0-for-24 in that span. Meanwhile, Augusta clawed it back to 5-3 by the 5th inning and the dam burst against RHP Israel Puello in the top of the 7th inning, when 4 hits and 2 walks gave the GreenJackets a 7-5 lead which it would not relinquish. On some other positive notes, it was great to see RF Hendry Mendez back in action after departing Tuesday’s game early and LHP Jakob Brustoski threw a clean inning to put some early season struggles behind him. Performances of Note: Jeferson Quero – 1-4, HR, 3 RBIs Hendry Mendez – 1-3, BB Jackson Chourio – 1-4, double Jheremy Vargas – 1-4, RBI Edwin Jimenez – 5 IP, 3 R, 6 H, 2 BBs, 1 WP, 2 Ks Israel Puello (Loss) – 1 2/3 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 1 BB, 2 Ks Jakob Brustoski – 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 0 Ks Friday’s outlook: RHP Alexander Cornielle (1.56 ERA, 1.85 WHIP, 8.3 K/9 in 17 1/3 IP) is expected to make his 5th start, still searching for his first victory of 2022, as the Mudcats aim to take a 3-1 series lead at home against Augusta. Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Fort Wayne 4, Wisconsin 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, game details: TinCaps Hold Off Late Rattler Rally It was a classic pitchers’ duel in Appleton, as Wisconsin’s LHP Antoine Kelly and Fort Wayne’s LHP Noel Vela posted nearly identical lines: 5 innings each, zero runs each, 10 strikeouts each. The two young studs didn’t even throw a wild pitch or hit a batter, so the only difference was the 3 hits yielded by Vela and the 1 hit and 1 walk given up by Kelly. This left it to the bullpens and unfortunately the TinCaps had the advantage on this night, though Wisconsin certainly had its chances, leaving 10 men on base and going 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position. With Kelly’s exit after 5 innings, Fort Wayne quickly seized its chance, with the second batter (OF Corey Rosier) that RHP Miguel Guerrero faced hitting a first-pitch home run to right center field. Excellent work by RHP Joey Matulovich kept the game at 1-0 until the bottom of the 8th inning, when Wisconsin took 4 walks (the last a full count RBI walk by Miller) to tie it up. However, RHP James Meeker is still searching for his 2020/2021 form and hasn’t found it yet. He opened the 9th inning with a hit-by-pitch, then issued a full count walk and a gave up an infield single to load the bases. Meeker nearly escaped the inning by getting a swinging strike out for the 2nd out. Unfortunately, consecutive singles gave Fort Wayne a 4-1 lead and RHP Robbie Baker came in to strand the remaining two runners, which he successfully did. The Wisconsin half of the 9th inning actually mirrored Fort Wayne’s, with leadoff man Carlos D. Rodriguez reaching via a hit-by-pitch, then 3 walks and another hit-by-pitch bringing the game to 4-3, bases loaded with two outs, before Miller struck out swinging to end the interesting affair. Here’s a summary of the squandered chances on the night: A leadoff first inning single by OF Tristan Peters was wiped out by a strike-em-out, throw-em-out 2nd and 3rd, 2-out situations in the 4th inning and 6th inning both went for naught A bases loaded, 2-out chance in the 8th inning mustered only 1 run The game finished with the bases loaded, Rattlers' unable to get the key hit this time In other notes: It’s great to see Joe Gray Jr. keeping at it while he slowly rediscovers his bat. On this night, he recorded 3 walks, a single and his 7th stolen base of the young season Darrien Miller caught his 4th straight game, as Manager Joe Ayrault must have decided he can benefit from more consistent work behind the plate Recently promoted Micah Bello had a night to forget, going 0-for-4 with 4 strikeouts Performances of Note: Joe Gray Jr. – 1-2, 3 BBs, RBI, SB Darrien Miller – 1-4, RBI, SB Antonio Pinero – 1-3, BB Antoine Kelly – 5 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 10 Ks Joey Matulovich – 2 1/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 3 Ks James Meeker (Loss) – 2/3 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 1 BB, 1 K Friday’s outlook: RHP Justin Jarvis (7.91 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, 7.0 K/9 in 19 1/3 IP) seeks to get on track after yielding 5 earned runs and taking losses in each of his last two appearances, as the Timber Rattlers strive for a 3-1 series lead at home against Fort Wayne. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Montgomery 14, Biloxi 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers’ website, game details: Biloxi’s Early Lead Evaporates in 14-5 Loss Biloxi’s contest in Montgomery paralleled the events in Zebulon, with our squad jumping out to a 4-0 lead by the 4th inning and 5-4 lead in the 6th inning, before the Biscuit deluge. LHP Nick Bennett escaped a bases loaded, 1-out jam in the first inning by inducing a ground ball double play. Consecutive hits to lead off the second inning by OF Joey Wiemer (10th double of the season) and 2B Felix Valerio set up Thomas Dillard to smash his first home run of 2022, a 3-run blast. OF Sal Frelick added an RBI single in the 4th inning, as he continues to hit at every level, stretching the lead to 4-0, but Montgomery got to Bennett to even things up in the bottom half of the inning with 3 hits, a walk, a sacrifice fly and a fielder’s choice which couldn’t catch a runner at home. C Jakson Reetz continues to surprise, parking his 4th home run in just 44 at bats this year to help the club re-take the lead in the 6th inning, but RHP JT Hintzen wasn’t able to hold it in the bottom half. Reetz actually left the game before the bottom of the 7th inning with Biloxi down 7-5, so we’ll need to see whether this was an injury or just a case of Nick Kahle sharing catching duties on the night. After Hintzen exited, Montgomery didn’t let up against the Shuckers’ next three relievers, adding 7 runs to turn it into a rout. Performances of Note: Sal Frelick – 2-5, RBI, BB Cam Devanney – 2-4 Jakson Reetz – 1-3, HR, RBI Thomas Dillard – 1-4, HR, 3 RBIs Joey Wiemer – 1-4, double Felix Valerio – 1-3, BB Nick Bennett – 4 IP, 4 R, 5 H, 4 BBs, 3 Ks JT Hintzen (Loss) – 1 2/3 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 1 BB, 1 K Robbi Hitt, Zach Vennaro, Nash Walters – combined 2 1/3 IP, 7 R, 8 H, 4 BBs, 1 WP, 2 Ks Friday’s outlook: RHP Carlos Luna (2.12 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, 7.4 K/9, in 17 IP) takes his turn, as Biloxi seeks to halt its 4-game losing skid and win its first game in the series in Montgomery. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 4, Norfolk 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds’ website, game details: Sounds Walk Off on Jonathan Davis’ Base Hit The men in Nashville simply enjoy winning too much to give up on this one, with terrific bullpen work keeping the team in it throughout. After the Sounds stranded the bases loaded in the first inning, Norfolk grabbed the lead with a 2nd inning double and then 2-run shot by Rylan Bannon off Nashville starter RHP Caleb Boushley. Nashville tied it back up in the 3rd inning on a 2-run single by C Alex Jackson, plating 2B Mark Mathias and 1B Tyler White who had both singled. Boushley exited with 2-on, 2-out in the 5th inning, but JC Mejia gave up an infield single and walk to allow the Tides to re-take the lead. In the bottom of the 8th inning, Nashville loaded the bases with nobody out on two walks and a Jonathan Davis bunt, but only managed one run on a Brice Turang sacrifice fly. RHP Trevor Kelley was excellent, covering scoreless 9th and 10th innings, with Mathias throwing out Manfred’s ghost at home. xVictory came with Nashville’s own ghost (Weston Wilson) moving to 3rd base on a wild pitch, then scoring on a Jonathan Davis single to left Performances of Note: Alex Jackson – 2-5, double, 2 RBIs Mike Brosseau – 2-5, double Jonathan Davis – 2-4, BB, RBI, SB Caleb Boushley – 4 2/3 IP, 3 R, 7 H, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 3 Ks JC Mejia – 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 BBs, 2 Ks Luke Barker – 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 0 K Thomas Jankins – 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 Ks Trevor Kelley (Win) – 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 4 Ks Friday’s outlook: April’s International League Pitcher of the Month LHP Ethan Small (0.77 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 13.1 K/9 in 23 1/3 IP) makes his first May start as Nashville tries to build a 3-1 series lead at home against Norfolk.

  2. OF Jonathan Davis capped off Nashville’s comeback with an RBI single in extra innings. Sizeable early leads for Carolina and Biloxi couldn’t hold up. Antoine Kelly’s 10-K, 1-hit performance wasn’t enough for Wisconsin.

Hopefully the young men can take some inspiration from Nashville, which put men on base all night and eventually snatched victory from defeat.

  3. 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.
  4. Transactions: OF/IF Noah Campbell was promoted from High-A Wisconsin to AA Biloxi, providing much-needed depth after the recent Korry Howell and Hayden Cantrelle trades. The ultra-versatile Campbell was at Carolina for all of 2021 (.775 OPS), so for the moment at least, is bypassing the High-A level. 25-year-old LHP Scott Sunitsch was placed on the 10-day injured list at Biloxi. Sunitsch is apparently still working his way back from 2021 hip surgery, though it's possible this placement is unrelated. Due to the lost Covid season, Sunitsch last saw action at the two A-Ball levels in 2019 - 28 appearances, 26 of them starts. LHP Jakob Brustoski was assigned to Low-A Carolina, This will be Brustoski’s official organizational (and pro) debut, as the recently-turned-23-year-old had Tommy John surgery in December 2020, causing him to miss his junior year at Texas Tech. The Brewers signed him as an undrafted free agent in February 2021. Also, thanks to a poster's contribution link on the Minor League Forum, we got some clarity on the what the "Development List" is all about. *** Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 3, Durham (Rays) 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, please review: Jason Alexander Pitches Sounds to Win - Right-hander Tosses Five Scoreless Innings to Even Series We'll be up front with everyone, it's too long a season and too easy a reference, so for Jason Alexander's sake, you won't see Seinfeld/Costanza comments here very often. This fantastic feature article from last December is the definitive chronicling of Alexander's baseball journey. Since this was Alexander's Brewers organization debut, this is a fine chance to familiarize yourself with him. 113 MPH off the bat? How's the webbing in your glove this morning, Jamie Westbrook? The relief trio of RHP Luis Perdomo, RHP J.C. Mejia, and RHP Miguel Sanchez made their 2022 debuts. It will be interesting to see how long it is prior to Perdomo being stretched out. *** Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Biloxi 13, Pensacola (Marlins) 11, 11 innings Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers' site, game details, please review: What A Night! Shuckers Win Season Opener In Wild 11-Inning Affair - Valerio Homer Wins It For Biloxi First of all thank you Mets, for the January 2019 trade in which Keon Broxton turned into RHP Adam Hill (who was later flipped for Omar Narvaez) and a Dominican Summer League lottery pick in the 5'7" Felix Valerio. Hope you digested Garrett Greene's report just above, because where do we begin? Had the MiLB.TV video feed of the Pensacola broadcast on one device while synching (or attempting to) the Biloxi audio on another. It made for late-night fun for sure (game time 4:08). Check out the early-inning action here, you'll see a Garrett Mitchell triple, Joey Wiemer's first AA hit (plus showing off his cannon from right field), all which the Shuckers tweeted last night. But this video includes our only view of Tristen Lutz' HR as well. Might as well make your first AA knock ultra-productive, Freddy Zamora! Unfortunately, 3B Ashton McGee had to leave the game after a very awkward slide into home on this play. Total speculation, but that can't be good for one's shoulder. Here's hoping it's only a day-to-day, love McGee (.913 OPS in 2021) and the cleanup choice in a stacked lineup. By the way, 5'7" for Felix is being generous... Talk about immediate "Hello, Old Friend" - part of a 3-for-6 night: The Shuckers won despite committing four infield errors, they did eventually get to 18-year-old RHP phenom Eury Perez, but only after three dominant innings, and we haven't touched on the Shucker arms in this game. One of those wild nights where you just dig into the box and log and explore. Enjoy! *** Details on the Timber Rattlers postponement - Wet field conditions delay season-opener, juggles opening weekend schedule for Wisconsin *** Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Carolina 6, Down East (Rangers) 3 Box Score / Game Log We don't see an online version of the game summary quite yet, so we'll copy and paste the press release: Cipion Drives in Four in 6-3 Opening Night Victory The Mudcats defeated Down East 6-3 with 3,999 in attendance on Opening Night ZEBULON – Arbert Cipion matched a career high with four RBI, and Micah Bello scored three times as the Carolina Mudcats defeated the Down East Wood Ducks 6-3 in front of an Opening Night crowd of 3,999 on Friday night at Five County Stadium. Reliever Christian Tripp earned the victory and Michele Vassalotti earned his first career save. The Mudcats (1-0) originally fell behind 1-0 in the second before tying things at 1-1 thanks to Cipion’s first of two run scoring doubles in the game. Carolina then took a 2-1 lead when Jheremy Vargas singled and scored on a RBI single from Hendry Mendez. Bello made it 3-1 in the fourth when he doubled and scored on a Cipion groundout. The Wood Ducks (0-1) later bounced back with two runs off Carolina starter Ryne Moore to tie the game, but Carolina answered with two more in the sixth and one in the eighth to get the Opening Night victory. Cipion drove in both Carolina runs in the sixth with a two-run double, and Bello scored from third on a double steal (with Cipion taking second) in the eighth. Tripp (1-0, 0.00) earned the win after working through three straight scoreless innings. He entered in the sixth and retired eight straight before walking a batter in the eighth. He also followed Moore who had worked through five innings with three runs allowed on five hits. Moore’s only blemish was a game-tying two run single given up to Maximo Acosta in the fifth. TOP PERFORMERS - BATTERS: Bello, DH (Carolina): 2-for-3, 3 R, 2 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 0 RBI Cipion, LF (Carolina): 2-for-3, 0 R, 2 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 4 RBI Quero, C (Carolina): 2-for-4, 2 R, 0 2B, 1 3B, 0 HR, 0 RBI TOP PERFORMERS - PITCHERS: Moore (Carolina): 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 SO Tripp (W, 1-0) (Carolina): 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 SO Vassalotti (S, 1) (Carolina): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 SO Hey, way to go, Zebulon, couldn't fudge the number to get a 4,000th fan in the ballpark? Great turnout! He won't turn 22 until next month, but speedster Arbert Cipion is working on his 5th pro year (the lost Covid season counts for service time). He was the Crew's 9th round pick in 2018 out of a New Jersey high school. It's been a struggle (nearly 44% K rate), but it'd be neat if this was one of those development-of-raw-tool-stories. Two doubles and a walk for Micah Bello, who was the DH here. Now 21, folks may have forgotten that Bello was the 73rd overall pick in that same 2018 draft. Nice work by the two big RHP's in Ryne Moore and Christian Tripp. Tripp, the former Mets farmhand who was a victim of their Covid-era releases, just turned 25. Importantly, he only walked one in three innings, as control was an issue in 2021's Carolina debut (20 BB's in 25.1 IP). Keep that up and he'll be bumped to a more age-appropriate level soon. Folks, I did take in much of this game via MiLB.TV, and wow, nice first 2022 impression Jeferson Quero (2-for-4). The Brewers' prized catcher just exudes maturity, and his triple was a laser beam over the center fielder's head punctuated with an athletic slide into third. One bummer - Carolina's social media presence, at least in terms of within-game video highlights and such, is in a state of transition as of now. The Mudcats had one of the premier online entertaining identities in all of MiLB for the past few years, hopefully they can strive to regain at least part of that. *** We're not going to be able to make note of Brewers alumni each and every night (not even close), however it was quite a week thus far, particularly Friday night. From earlier this week, we missed David Fry's (J.C. Mejia trade) first home run in the Guardians' organization - RHP Evan Reifert (Mike Brosseau trade) made his AA debut in style last night, just 15 pitches to do this: Did we all see catcher Payton Henry (John Curtiss trade) made Miami's opening big league roster? Wonderful AA start to the season for Reese Olson (Daniel Norris trade). Third baseman Alex Binelas was 2-for-4 in his High-A Boston system debut Friday night. And his trade partner in the JBJ/Hunter Renfroe deal, David Hamilton, had a Red Sox AA debut for the ages, oh of course he stole a base, too. *** Saturday 4/9: Make note of the gametime starts as you plan your Brewers prospect Saturday!

  5. After allowing the AAA club to bask in their solo spotlight for a bit, it was time to peel back the curtain on a full slate of games for the Brewers' affiliates. Mother Nature had other ideas, but hey, an undefeated night is an undefeated night! Transactions: OF/IF Noah Campbell was promoted from High-A Wisconsin to AA Biloxi, providing much-needed depth after the recent Korry Howell and Hayden Cantrelle trades. The ultra-versatile Campbell was at Carolina for all of 2021 (.775 OPS), so for the moment at least, is bypassing the High-A level. 25-year-old LHP Scott Sunitsch was placed on the 10-day injured list at Biloxi. Sunitsch is apparently still working his way back from 2021 hip surgery, though it's possible this placement is unrelated. Due to the lost Covid season, Sunitsch last saw action at the two A-Ball levels in 2019 - 28 appearances, 26 of them starts. LHP Jakob Brustoski was assigned to Low-A Carolina, This will be Brustoski’s official organizational (and pro) debut, as the recently-turned-23-year-old had Tommy John surgery in December 2020, causing him to miss his junior year at Texas Tech. The Brewers signed him as an undrafted free agent in February 2021. Also, thanks to a poster's contribution link on the Minor League Forum, we got some clarity on the what the "Development List" is all about. *** Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 3, Durham (Rays) 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, please review: Jason Alexander Pitches Sounds to Win - Right-hander Tosses Five Scoreless Innings to Even Series We'll be up front with everyone, it's too long a season and too easy a reference, so for Jason Alexander's sake, you won't see Seinfeld/Costanza comments here very often. This fantastic feature article from last December is the definitive chronicling of Alexander's baseball journey. Since this was Alexander's Brewers organization debut, this is a fine chance to familiarize yourself with him. 113 MPH off the bat? How's the webbing in your glove this morning, Jamie Westbrook? The relief trio of RHP Luis Perdomo, RHP J.C. Mejia, and RHP Miguel Sanchez made their 2022 debuts. It will be interesting to see how long it is prior to Perdomo being stretched out. *** Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Biloxi 13, Pensacola (Marlins) 11, 11 innings Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers' site, game details, please review: What A Night! Shuckers Win Season Opener In Wild 11-Inning Affair - Valerio Homer Wins It For Biloxi First of all thank you Mets, for the January 2019 trade in which Keon Broxton turned into RHP Adam Hill (who was later flipped for Omar Narvaez) and a Dominican Summer League lottery pick in the 5'7" Felix Valerio. Hope you digested Garrett Greene's report just above, because where do we begin? Had the MiLB.TV video feed of the Pensacola broadcast on one device while synching (or attempting to) the Biloxi audio on another. It made for late-night fun for sure (game time 4:08). Check out the early-inning action here, you'll see a Garrett Mitchell triple, Joey Wiemer's first AA hit (plus showing off his cannon from right field), all which the Shuckers tweeted last night. But this video includes our only view of Tristen Lutz' HR as well. Might as well make your first AA knock ultra-productive, Freddy Zamora! Unfortunately, 3B Ashton McGee had to leave the game after a very awkward slide into home on this play. Total speculation, but that can't be good for one's shoulder. Here's hoping it's only a day-to-day, love McGee (.913 OPS in 2021) and the cleanup choice in a stacked lineup. By the way, 5'7" for Felix is being generous...
