  1. We are now about six weeks into the season, and several players (hitters and pitchers) have really stood out. This is the time of year when we will start seeing more and more merit-based promotions (and potentially demotions) beyond transactions for injury-related purposes. As the day goes on, the Brewers’ affiliates will be making those announcements. Also, remember that several full-season minor league leagues are comprised of two half-seasons. The season essentially starts over at the halfway point and a couple of playoff spots will be up for grabs. That is something we’ll need to pay attention to over the next month. TRANSACTIONS Nothing is official yet, but there will be several player promotions announced on Tuesday. RHP Cristian Sierra has been released. RHP Fernando Olguin promoted from the Arizona Complex to Carolina. RESULTS Last week’s Week in Review (5/3-5/9): Chourio Debuts in Carolina, Rattler Pitchers Continue to Dominate Tuesday: Break out the Brooms, It’s a 4-0 Affiliate Evening Sweep! Wednesday: T-Rats Win Ensures Affiliates Avoid 0-4 Night Thursday: Nashville and Wisconsin Lead the Way Once Again Friday: Shuckers and Mudcats Avoid Any Friday the 13th Voodoo Saturday: Thirty-Five Runs Power a 3-1 Night Sunday: It’s a Four-Game Affiliate Sweep, Including Stiven Cruz’s Sterling Debut and Team-Record Six Biloxi Home Runs! WEEK IN REVIEW Triple-A: Nashville Sounds Week: 4-2 @ Jacksonville Season: 24-11 overall, 1st place in the International League West. They are 1/2 game ahead of Columbus and 4 1/2 games ahead of Toledo and Memphis. Nashville just continues to play great each week. In Jacksonville, they outscored the Jumbo Shrimp 40-28 over the week, largely due to a 10-1 win on Thursday. Ethan Small made a start and gave up one run on four hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out nine batters. Five Sounds relievers pitched twice last week without allowing a run. Connor Sadzeck led the way with five strikeouts in three innings. Obviously when he was optioned, Keston Hiura had to be disappointed. However, he didn’t let it affect how he performed. In four games with the Sounds, he went 7-for-15 and hit .467/.556/1.067 (1.623) with three home runs and nine RBI. Two of those homers came against Marlins’ pitching prospect Max Meyer. Hiura did miss the final two games of the week with a minor injury. Mario Feliciano played in just three games. He went 7-for-11 (.636) with a double. Mark Mathias played in four games and went 7-for-16, hitting .438/.471/.625 (1.096) with a home run. On the other side, Tyler White had a rough week. He played in four games and went 1-for-17 (..059) with seven strikeouts. What’s Next? The Sounds will return home to take on Louisville. Pitching Probables (RHP Caleb Boushley, LHP Ethan Small, RHP Dylan File, RHP Jason Alexander, RHP Josh Lindblom, TBD) Double-A: Biloxi Shuckers Week: 4-2, hosting Birmingham Season: 16-17 overall, 2nd place in the Southern League. They are 2.0 games behind Pensacola. A week after they lost all six of their games, the Shuckers were back on their winning ways. After winning the first game, they lost the next two. However, they won the final three games by a combined score of 30-10. This week, it was the offense that carried their success. Joey Wiemer played in all six games. He went 10-for-24 and hit .417/.500/1.083 (1.583) with one home run and five RBI. Jakson Reetz played in five games and went 7-for-17. He hit .412/.524/1.000 (1.524) with a double and three homers. Thomas Dillard played all six games. He went 7-for-20, hitting .350/.500/.650 (1.150) with three doubles and a home run. He also walked six times. Felix Valerio played in six games. He went 8-for-25. He hit .320/.393/.680 (.1.073) with three home runs. Noah Campbell played in four games and went 5-for-14 (.357) with two doubles. He added three walks. Victor Castaneda went six scoreless innings in his first start last week. He gave up two hits, walked one and struck out ten batters. He pitched three innings out of the bullpen on Sunday. Overall, he gave up two runs on five hits and two walks. In nine innings, he had 16 strikeouts. Tyler Herb had another terrific start. He tossed six scoreless innings. He gave up four hits, walked two and struck out three batters. Five Sounds relievers worked at least two scoreless innings during the week. What's Next? The Shuckers will travel to Mississippi to take on the Braves. Pitching Probables (LHP Nick Bennett, RHP Justin Bullock, TBD, RHP Victor Castaneda, RHP Noah Zavolas, LHP Nick Bennett) High-A: Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Week: 5-1, @ Quad Cities Season: 22-11 overall, 2nd place in the Midwest League West Division, 2.0 games behind Cedar Rapids. The Timber Rattlers went 5-1 for the week, but they were unable to make up any ground to the Cedar Rapids Kernels. These two teams are likely to remain at the top of the division, and after the upcoming week hosting South Bend, the Rattlers will head to Iowa to take on the Kernels. The pitchers have really led the way for Wisconsin much of this season, but last week, the offense really had a big week. It started with a 17-4 win, and over the six games, the Rattlers outscored the Bandits 49-24. Tyler Black played in all six games and went 11-for-25. He hit .440/.500/.800 (1.300) with a double, a triple, two homers, and 11 RBI. He also walked three times. Tristan Peters also played all six games. He went 9-for-24 and hit .375/.467/.833 (1.300) with two doubles, three triples, and a home run. He also walked five times. Zavier Warren played six games and went 7-for-24. He hit .292/.433/.583 (1.016) with four doubles and a home run. He also walked five times. Darrien Miller played in five games and went 8-for-21. He hit .381/.480/.524 (.1004) with a double and a triple. Cam Robinson recorded saves in both of his appearances last week. In four scoreless innings, he gave up one hit, walked one, and struck out five batters. Kent Hasler pitched twice and gave up just a walk over 3 1/3 scoreless, hitless innings. He struck out nine batters. Brandon Knarr made two starts for Wisconsin. He went 2-0 and gave up just two runs. He gave up eight hits, walked two, and struck out 15 batters in 12 innings. Antoine Kelly gave up two runs (1 earned) on three hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out two batters. What’s Next? The Timber Rattlers return home to take on the South Bend Cubs. Pitching Probables (LHP Antoine Kelly, RHP Ryne Moore, RHP Justin Jarvis, TBD, TBD, TBD) Low-A: Carolina Mudcats Week: 3-3, @ Fayetteville Season: 17-16 overall, tied for 3rd place in the Carolina League North Division with Salem, 1/2 game behind Lynchburg and 2 1/2 games behind Fredericksburg. As you would expect from a 3-3 week, the teams were very closely matched. In fact, Carolina was outscored 27-28 for the week. Four of the games were settled by two runs or less. As you’ll see below, the Mudcats got a nice, long start, but it was the relief corp that really got the job done. In his start, Ryne Moore gave up one run on six hits over seven innings. He walked one and struck out six batters. Stiven Cruz pitched three innings in his bullpen appearance. He gave up just one hit and walked one, and he struck out eight batters. Edwin Jimenez also worked three scoreless innings out of the bullpen. He gave up one hit, walked one, hit one and struck out four batters. Michele Vassalotti finished two games and went 2-0. In four innings, he gave up only an unearned run and struck out six batters in four innings. Carlos Rodriguez pitched just once, four innings in relief. He gave up an unearned run on two hits and a walk, and he struck out seven batters. Christian Tripp worked three innings over two relief outings. He gave up no runs on two hits. He walked none and struck out five batters. Herbert Perez played in five games. He went 5-for-19 and hit .263/.391/.474 (.865) with a double and a home run. He also walked four times. Jesus Chirinos played in all six games. He went 5-for-19 and hit .263/.417/.421 (.838) with a home run. He also walked five times. Of players with more than seven plate appearances, no one had an OPS higher than .626 What’s Next? The Mudcats will be hosting the Down East Wood Ducks.

He played all six games. He had ten hits including a double and five home runs. He also walked three times and showed his speed with a couple of stolen bases. Weimer was a star at Bedford High School in Michigan. Beyond baseball, he was on the varsity football team four years and the basketball team two seasons. He was a three-year starter at the University of Cincinnati before the Brewers made him their fourth-round pick in 2020. He began his professional career last year with 75 games in Carolina before ending the season with 34 games in Wisconsin. Combined, he hit .296/.403/.556 (.958) with 18 doubles and 27 home runs. He was also 30-for-36 in stolen base attempts. He did as much damage with the Rattlers in half the number of games. After the season, he played in the Arizona Fall League where he hit .467 with a 1.234 OPS. Wiemer is a fantastic prospect who has both power and speed. The 23-year-old will likely play mostly in the corner outfield spots, and his power has a chance to be really special. Consider he’s already got 12 doubles and nine home runs in just 33 games in Double-A. Pre-season, Baseball America named him the #100 prospect in baseball. Pitcher of the Week: LHP Brandon Knarr, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Here we are again, a Timber Rattler is the choice for Brewers Minor League Pitcher of the Week. For the second time, that pitcher is left-hander Brandon Knarr. Last week, he made two starts and went 2-0. He posted a 1.50 ERA. In 12 innings, he gave up two runs on eight hits. He walked two and struck out 15 batters. Possible it is his last start in High-A? Knarr has a career that has been quite circuitous to get to this point. The Pennsylvania native was a star at Eastern York High School. He started his college career at Notre Dame before transferring to the College of Central Florida. In 65 2/3 innings, he had 86 strikeouts. From there, he went to the Division II baseball powerhouse at the University of Tampa. In six starts before the season was shut down, he went 4-1 with a 2.55 ERA. He had 64 strikeouts in 35 1/3 innings (16.3 K/9). Knarr went undrafted in the Covid-shortened, five-round 2020 MLB draft. As you recall, teams were able to sign non-drafted players for up to $20,000. Knarr had many options, but the Brewers offered the opportunity to work as a starter. He signed and has taken advantage. Last year in Carolina, he went 7-2 with a 3.84 ERA in 75 innings. He struck out 103 batters (12.4 K/9). He ended the season with five starts in Wisconsin, where he struggled some but also struck out more than a batter per inning. Knarr has worked hard to get to this point in his career. He stands less than 6-0 tall. He doesn’t throw real hard, but he is incredibly competitive. His fastball sits between 88 and 91 mph. He has a split-finger pitch that is sitting in the 72-76 mph range. He’s got two breaking balls, a slider in the low-80s and a slower curveball in the mid-70s. He works fast and really commands the zone. He’s known to ask questions and is always working to learn more about his craft. Feel free to discuss the Brewers' prospects and their affiliates in the COMMENTS below.
  2. Transactions are coming today. Some very exciting promotions at that. Check back throughout the day for more and do discuss those moves. Nashville remains in first place after a 4-2 week. Biloxi returned to their winning ways with a 4-2 week. Wisconsin went 5-1 again. Carolina played at .500. Several top prospects had huge weeks. How might an updated Brewers top prospect ranking look? We are now about six weeks into the season, and several players (hitters and pitchers) have really stood out. This is the time of year when we will start seeing more and more merit-based promotions (and potentially demotions) beyond transactions for injury-related purposes. As the day goes on, the Brewers’ affiliates will be making those announcements. Also, remember that several full-season minor league leagues are comprised of two half-seasons. The season essentially starts over at the halfway point and a couple of playoff spots will be up for grabs. That is something we’ll need to pay attention to over the next month. TRANSACTIONS Nothing is official yet, but there will be several player promotions announced on Tuesday.

As you would expect from a 3-3 week, the teams were very closely matched. In fact, Carolina was outscored 27-28 for the week. Four of the games were settled by two runs or less. As you’ll see below, the Mudcats got a nice, long start, but it was the relief corp that really got the job done. In his start, Ryne Moore gave up one run on six hits over seven innings. He walked one and struck out six batters. Stiven Cruz pitched three innings in his bullpen appearance. He gave up just one hit and walked one, and he struck out eight batters. Edwin Jimenez also worked three scoreless innings out of the bullpen. He gave up one hit, walked one, hit one and struck out four batters. Michele Vassalotti finished two games and went 2-0. In four innings, he gave up only an unearned run and struck out six batters in four innings. Carlos Rodriguez pitched just once, four innings in relief. He gave up an unearned run on two hits and a walk, and he struck out seven batters. Christian Tripp worked three innings over two relief outings. He gave up no runs on two hits. He walked none and struck out five batters. Herbert Perez played in five games. He went 5-for-19 and hit .263/.391/.474 (.865) with a double and a home run. He also walked four times. Jesus Chirinos played in all six games. He went 5-for-19 and hit .263/.417/.421 (.838) with a home run. He also walked five times. Of players with more than seven plate appearances, no one had an OPS higher than .626 What’s Next? The Mudcats will be hosting the Down East Wood Ducks.

He played all six games. He had ten hits including a double and five home runs. He also walked three times and showed his speed with a couple of stolen bases. Weimer was a star at Bedford High School in Michigan. Beyond baseball, he was on the varsity football team four years and the basketball team two seasons. He was a three-year starter at the University of Cincinnati before the Brewers made him their fourth-round pick in 2020. He began his professional career last year with 75 games in Carolina before ending the season with 34 games in Wisconsin. Combined, he hit .296/.403/.556 (.958) with 18 doubles and 27 home runs. He was also 30-for-36 in stolen base attempts. He did as much damage with the Rattlers in half the number of games. After the season, he played in the Arizona Fall League where he hit .467 with a 1.234 OPS. Wiemer is a fantastic prospect who has both power and speed. The 23-year-old will likely play mostly in the corner outfield spots, and his power has a chance to be really special. Consider he’s already got 12 doubles and nine home runs in just 33 games in Double-A. Pre-season, Baseball America named him the #100 prospect in baseball. Pitcher of the Week: LHP Brandon Knarr, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Here we are again, a Timber Rattler is the choice for Brewers Minor League Pitcher of the Week. For the second time, that pitcher is left-hander Brandon Knarr. Last week, he made two starts and went 2-0. He posted a 1.50 ERA. In 12 innings, he gave up two runs on eight hits. He walked two and struck out 15 batters. Possible it is his last start in High-A? Knarr has a career that has been quite circuitous to get to this point. The Pennsylvania native was a star at Eastern York High School. He started his college career at Notre Dame before transferring to the College of Central Florida. In 65 2/3 innings, he had 86 strikeouts. From there, he went to the Division II baseball powerhouse at the University of Tampa. In six starts before the season was shut down, he went 4-1 with a 2.55 ERA. He had 64 strikeouts in 35 1/3 innings (16.3 K/9). Knarr went undrafted in the Covid-shortened, five-round 2020 MLB draft. As you recall, teams were able to sign non-drafted players for up to $20,000. Knarr had many options, but the Brewers offered the opportunity to work as a starter. He signed and has taken advantage. Last year in Carolina, he went 7-2 with a 3.84 ERA in 75 innings. He struck out 103 batters (12.4 K/9). He ended the season with five starts in Wisconsin, where he struggled some but also struck out more than a batter per inning. Knarr has worked hard to get to this point in his career. He stands less than 6-0 tall. He doesn’t throw real hard, but he is incredibly competitive. His fastball sits between 88 and 91 mph. He has a split-finger pitch that is sitting in the 72-76 mph range. He’s got two breaking balls, a slider in the low-80s and a slower curveball in the mid-70s. He works fast and really commands the zone. He’s known to ask questions and is always working to learn more about his craft.

  3. Keston Hiura (2) and Mark Mathis (1) hit three home runs over the first five innings to give Ethan Small plenty of cushion in a Nashville 10-1 rout in Jacksonville. The Timber Rattlers produced a similar scoreline 10-2 in Quad Cities, though the runs came late and without any long balls. I’m sure Wisconsin’s Tristan Peters and Tyler Black enjoyed some rest after recording a combined three triples in the game. By contrast, Biloxi and Carolina missed several chances to knock in runs, with each dropping their second consecutive game of the week. Game Balls go to Hiura, Mark Mathias, Ethan Small, Peters and Black.

In this one, the Mudcats stranded five runners over the first three innings and six more over the final three innings, going 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position in their loss. RHP Alexander Cornielle took the loss after yielding two runs in the first inning and then giving up a two-run jack to .194-hitting Victor Mascal in the 4th inning to fall behind 4-2. However, let's take strong encouragement from his eight strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings, which looks like a sign of progress for the young hurler. That Woodpecker lead steadily grew to 7-2 by the 7th inning before the Mudcats loaded the bases with one out in the 8th inning. Credit must be given to Fayetteville’s Ian Foggo, who escaped that jam in his first appearance of the season, striking out six Carolina batters over the final two innings of the game. Performances of Note: Oswel Leones – 2-5, double Arbert Cipion – 1-3, triple, BB, RBI Hendry Mendez – 1-3, 2 BBs, SB Alexander Cornielle (Loss) – 4 2/3 IP, 4 R (3 ER), 5 H, 2 BBs, 1 WP, 8 Ks Junior Montero – 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 3 Ks Friday’s outlook: RHP Miguel Segura (5.21 ERA, 1.79 WHIP, 6.2 K/9 in 19 innings) is scheduled to start, as Carolina needs a win to tie up the series at two games apiece. However, let’s be on the lookout to see whether newly-promoted RHP Stiven Cruz gets his first full season action. Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Wisconsin 10, Quad Cities 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, game details: Timber Rattlers Take Sixth Straight Win Although the final score suggests a blowout, Wisconsin actually trailed 2-0 after three innings in this one before the bats came to life in a big way. Kudos to Joe Gray Jr. and Ethan Murray for gunning down a River Bandit at third base to end a first inning threat. OF Tristan Peters collected Wisconsin’s first clutch hit, a triple in the 4th inning to score Zavier Warren (who’d walked), which 1B Wes Clarke followed up with a sacrifice fly to knot the contest at 2-2. An infield single by 2B Tyler Black accompanied by a Quad Cities throwing error gave the Timber Rattlers a 3-2 lead in the 5th inning, with RHP Justin Jarvis ultimately earning the win, though supported by RHP Robbie Baker's excellent 2 2/3 innings of scoreless work. Still tight heading into the 7th inning, Wisconsin opened the gap via an Alex Hall RBI-double, run scoring wild pitch and then a Tyler Black sacrifice fly to extend the lead to 6-2. In the bottom half, another solid defensive play (this time OF Micah Bello throwing out a River Bandit at home) wiped out another Quad Cities threat. The 8th inning saw Peters (another triple), Clarke (run-scoring single) and Tyler Black (3-run triple) again combine to put the game out of reach. Performances of Note: Tristan Peters – 3-5, 2 triples, RBI Tyler Black – 2-4, triple, SF, 4 RBIs Alex Hall – 2-3, double, BB, RBI Carlos D.

Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Birmingham 5, Biloxi 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers’ website, game details: Biloxi Falls To Birmingham Despite 11 Hits The return of RHP Justin Bullock, an early 3-1 lead and usually-solid RHP Carlos Luna on the mound for the middle innings looked like perfect ingredients for a Shuckers’ victory, but it was not to be on this day. Bullock hadn’t appeared in a game since leaving his first start on April 8th early, so the team must have been excited to have their dependable starter back on the mound. Bullock was limited to 35 pitches over two innings, exiting tied at 1-1 thanks to a Felix Valerio solo shot. Luna looked to have things in hand with a clean 3rd inning, followed by a two-run double by Jakson Reetz in the bottom half of the inning to score Garrett Mitchell and Joey Wiemer (who’d both singled). However, five consecutive Baron hits opened the top of the 5th inning to re-knot the game at 3-3 before Birmingham’s Jose Rodriguez produced a two-run, two-out single to take a 5-3 lead which held up the rest of the way. Credit goes to JT Hintzen, though, for entering with the bases loaded and one out, then stranded all three runners (soft infield line out, strikeout). Unfortunately, Biloxi was unable to match that clutch hitting, failing to score despite a one-out single (Brent Diaz) in the 6th inning and leadoff 7th and 8th inning singles (Noah Campbell, Thomas Dillard respectively). In addition to Hintzen, Nash Walters and Luis Contreras must also be recognized for giving their offense a chance, as the three relievers gave up zero runs over the final 4 2/3 innings. Performances of Note: Joey Wiemer – 2-4, double Garrett Mitchell – 2-4 Felix Valerio – 1-4, HR, RBI Jakson Reetz – 1-4, double, 2 RBIs Brock Holt – 1-4, SB Justin Bullock – 2 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 BBs, 0 Ks Carlos Luna (Loss) – 2 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 1 K JT Hintzen – 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 1 K Nash Walters – 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 Ks Luis Contreras – 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 2 Ks Friday’s outlook: Biloxi is counting on LHP Andy Otero (2.86 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, 9.2 K/9 in 28 1/3 innings) to come through win a dominant effort to end their two-game skid and tie up this week’s series with Birmingham at 2-2. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 10, Jacksonville 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds’ website, game details: Small Shines, Hiura Homers Twice in Sounds Victory If anyone needed a reminder that 2B Keston Hiura can hammer right-handed pitching, they certainly got it in this Nashville blowout. After LHP Ethan Small once again avoided big hits despite struggling with walks (two in the first inning, one to lead off the second inning), the Nashville offense blew up the game in the 3rd inning, starting with Mark Mathias’ 3rd homer of the season. Then after young prospects Mario Feliciano and Brice Turang each singled, Hiura pulled a two-out, 0-1 pitch out to left field for a three-run blast, his first since recently being optioned to AAA. Unfortunately, Hiura helped give a run back with a throwing error in the bottom of the 3rd inning, but he made up for it with a two-out, full count homer the other way in the 5th inning, scoring Weston Wilson (who’d doubled) and effectively putting the game out of reach at 6-1. With Small striking out nine batters in just five innings, the Sounds were comfortable on this evening. However, even with that large cushion, RHP Zack Brown and Luke Barker still took their work very seriously, combining to throw four hitless, scoreless innings to close it out. Performances of Note: Keston Hiura – 3-4, 2 HR, HBP, 7 RBIs Mark Mathias – 3-4, HR, RBI Weston Wilson – 2-5, double Mario Feliciano – 2-4 Brice Turang – 1-3, 2 BBs Ethan Small (Win) – 5 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 3 BBs, 1 WP, 1 balk, 9 Ks Zack Brown – 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 K Luke Barker – 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 2 Ks Friday’s outlook: RHP Dylan File (3.95 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 6.3 K/9 in 27 1/3 innings), will try to replicate his last start, in which he gave up only three hits and no runs over five innings, as Nashville aims for a 3-1 series lead over Jacksonville.

  4. Keston Hiura drove in seven runs as Nashville cruised. Clutch hitting (including three triples) turned ten hits into ten runs for a Wisconsin victory, while Biloxi produced only three runs on 11 hits in a loss. The frustrated Mudcats left 11 men on base in their defeat. Keston Hiura (2) and Mark Mathis (1) hit three home runs over the first five innings to give Ethan Small plenty of cushion in a Nashville 10-1 rout in Jacksonville. The Timber Rattlers produced a similar scoreline 10-2 in Quad Cities, though the runs came late and without any long balls.

Performances of Note: Joey Wiemer – 2-4, double Garrett Mitchell – 2-4 Felix Valerio – 1-4, HR, RBI Jakson Reetz – 1-4, double, 2 RBIs Brock Holt – 1-4, SB Justin Bullock – 2 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 BBs, 0 Ks Carlos Luna (Loss) – 2 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 1 K JT Hintzen – 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 1 K Nash Walters – 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 Ks Luis Contreras – 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 2 Ks Friday’s outlook: Biloxi is counting on LHP Andy Otero (2.86 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, 9.2 K/9 in 28 1/3 innings) to come through win a dominant effort to end their two-game skid and tie up this week’s series with Birmingham at 2-2. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 10, Jacksonville 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds’ website, game details: Small Shines, Hiura Homers Twice in Sounds Victory If anyone needed a reminder that 2B Keston Hiura can hammer right-handed pitching, they certainly got it in this Nashville blowout. After LHP Ethan Small once again avoided big hits despite struggling with walks (two in the first inning, one to lead off the second inning), the Nashville offense blew up the game in the 3rd inning, starting with Mark Mathias’ 3rd homer of the season. Then after young prospects Mario Feliciano and Brice Turang each singled, Hiura pulled a two-out, 0-1 pitch out to left field for a three-run blast, his first since recently being optioned to AAA. Unfortunately, Hiura helped give a run back with a throwing error in the bottom of the 3rd inning, but he made up for it with a two-out, full count homer the other way in the 5th inning, scoring Weston Wilson (who’d doubled) and effectively putting the game out of reach at 6-1. With Small striking out nine batters in just five innings, the Sounds were comfortable on this evening. However, even with that large cushion, RHP Zack Brown and Luke Barker still took their work very seriously, combining to throw four hitless, scoreless innings to close it out. Performances of Note: Keston Hiura – 3-4, 2 HR, HBP, 7 RBIs Mark Mathias – 3-4, HR, RBI Weston Wilson – 2-5, double Mario Feliciano – 2-4 Brice Turang – 1-3, 2 BBs Ethan Small (Win) – 5 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 3 BBs, 1 WP, 1 balk, 9 Ks Zack Brown – 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 K Luke Barker – 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 2 Ks Friday’s outlook: RHP Dylan File (3.95 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 6.3 K/9 in 27 1/3 innings), will try to replicate his last start, in which he gave up only three hits and no runs over five innings, as Nashville aims for a 3-1 series lead over Jacksonville.

  5. Transactions: Jandel Gustave (RHP) was optioned to Triple-A Nashville, JC Mejía (RHP) was recalled by the Milwaukee Brewers, Brandon Ramey (RHP) was released by the Carolina Mudcats, Ernesto Martinez (1B) was placed on the IL retroactive to May 8th, Yeison Coca (INF) was transferred from Wisconsin to Nashville, Ashton McGee (3B/1B) was transferred from Biloxi to Wisconsin. Before you get started digesting the sweet tastes of four victories, take a moment to read up on our Minor League Players and Pitchers of the Month in Micah Bello, Brice Turang, TJ Shook, and Peter Strzelecki; all four young men were much deserving of these honors. Congratulations! Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Carolina 2, Fayetteville (Astros) 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats' site, game details, please review: Mudcats Open Trip with 2-1 Victory in Extras - Eduardo Garcia Broke a 1-1 Tie in the Eleventh with a Go-Ahead Single Before this contest started, the Brewers Fanatic Minor League forum was abuzz with talk of young and exciting prospect Jackson Chourio (OF). He continued his torrid pace and discipline at the plate on this fine evening with a 2-5 outing and zero strikeouts yet again. This young man appears to be something else. For those simply reading these reports at home, please feel free to check that forum link and take a peek at what Baseball America is saying of our youngest and extremely talented prospect - you won't be disappointed. For the record: Chourio joined the Mudcats on May 3 and has totaled six doubles and five multi-hit games in just seven games overall. He has now hit safely in five straight games, with at least two hits in each of his last four games. He singled and scored in the fourth on a throwing error by Santos. This young man is about as exciting as it gets in Low-A. Ryne Moore took the hill tonight, and the young hurler pitched an absolute gem: a career-high seven complete innings of one earned run, six-hit, one walk, and six strikeout ball. What a night for the youngster. He handed the ball off to Christian Tripp and Michele Vassalotti for four scoreless innings. Michele will make special kudos as he stranded two straight 'Manfred Men', allowing no additional baserunners and striking out three. I'll keep saying it: Michele has taken his transition to the bullpen and run with it. What a godsend he's been on the backend. Further Notes: We send our best of luck in future baseball and life endeavors to now-former Mudcat, Brandon Ramey. Thank you for your time and commitment to the Mudcats and Brewers organizations. The two teams combined for a 1 of 27 output with RISP. That's going to lead to many an extra-inning affair. We're lucky our Mudcats came out on top, but we certainly won't complain! The Mudcats home run streak ended tonight in Fayetteville at four games. It was a good run. Here's to more long balls tomorrow! Appreciating the true youth movement in Carolina: At just over 18 years old, Jackson Chourio is now the youngest player in the Carolina League (as of 5/3). With Chourio's addition, and at just a smidge under 18.5 years old, Hendry Mendez is now the second-youngest player in the league. By average age (21.37 as of 5/3), the Mudcats are the second-youngest team in the Carolina League. Happy Birthday is for Mudcat Jheremy Vargas (INF), who turned 19 today (5/10/2003 birthday). To be that young and playing professional baseball is something else. To be that young and playing professional baseball but knowing you are older than some of your teammates? That's a whole other can of worms. What a season in Zebulon! With Fredericksburg's 3-2 loss to Kannapolis, the Mudcats have pulled within 2.5 games of first place. *** Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes via their all-encompassing Virtual Press Box Final: Wisconsin 17, Quad Cities (Royals) 4 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers' site, game details, please review: Rattlers Win Big at Quad Cities - Rattlers 17, River Bandits 4 In another showdown of tantalizing Low-A logos, the Rattlers and talented lefty Brandon Knarr took on the Quad Cities River Bandits for their second series of the young season. The game-time temperature in Quad Cities Modern Woodmen Park was 90 degrees - um, that's not a typo. The mere mention of these temps had me sweating in my swivel chair. Get me some ice water! These rising temps certainly aided some equally hot Rattler bats as they scored in every inning but the sixth and totaled 16 hits overall, including four home runs. No batter was more impressive than the consistently performing Tristan Peters and his 2 of 2 night with four walks (!!) to boot. If there is a more pleasantly surprising player in our lower levels, I am unsure if I can name him. Tristan has played a fantastic glove in the outfield (zero errors in 124 1/3 innings of combined left and right field ball), and his plate presence has been steady as they come through 28 games. With the four walks and his second home run of the season in the fifth innings, Tristan knocked his season OPS north of 0.900. This young man is still just a young 22 years old (February birthday). With output like this, he might find himself promoted for a shot at Double-A come summer. Further Game Notes: It's another one of those "Just look at this box score!" kind of nights. I said it last week - in forums and in passing in reports - but it is worth mentioning again: Joe Gray Jr. is back to his more comfortable position in center field, and he is simply getting more comfortable in every aspect. Since his April 30th low point and coming off an 0-4 day, Joe has hit safely in seven of eight games and gone 9 of 25 in that span. Here's to more of this, Joe! Brandon Knarr finished his evening after five complete innings. He allowed five hits, one walk, and two earned runs with five punchouts. It wasn't a completely dominant performance like we've seen from Brandon. Nonetheless, he did Knarr-like things in limiting damage and giving his team a legitimate chance at victory. Wes Clarke added two more walks to his lead-leading 24 walks on the season. He now has 26 total walks in 2022. He walked ten times in the most recent series versus Fort Wayne. Wes is sneakily having a very nice season even though a first glance at the peripherals wouldn't give you this story. A tip of the cap is for the scoreless three innings of work from Joey Matulovich. It's nice to see quality mop-up work when your team is up 15-4. Three strikeouts and a lone walk on the short stint with zero hits allowed. That's a good way to seal the 'W.' *** Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes via the Shuckers' Virtual Press Box Final: Biloxi 7, Birmingham (White Sox) 6 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers' site, game details, please review: Valerio Walk-Off Single Snaps Shuckers Skid - Castañeda Strikes Out Career High 10 Batters Victor Castañeda came to the mound ready to deal early. He completed his first inning with two strikeouts on 11 total pitches. He opened his second inning with a punch-out on quite an excellent splitter and ended it with another punch out on yet another splitter. In addition to the splitter, his slider was getting several swings and misses. The stalky bowl-legged right-hander was dealing. Victor ended his night going a great six innings of two-hit, one walk, with 10 (!!) strikeouts. The ten strikeouts were both a season and a career-high for Victor. It was beautiful to watch. And, sadly, a theme is seen all too often in this young Shucker season (Tyler Herb, I see you) reared its head again: Victor lost a chance at victory as things started unraveling. I've discussed certain facets of Shuckers' play that have beleaguered the team throughout the early going. I've talked about hitting with RISP, and I've talked about the bottom of the order's struggles. Unfortunately, it's time to bring a dim spotlight to the other day-to-day struggle: Fielding. The Shuckers led the entire Southern League in fielding errors with 35 in 27 games, coming into our Tuesday night tilt. Unfortunately, they added five more to the total tonight - several of which played critical roles in the Barrons' six-run 8th inning. When you are managing to take and possess a lead in 25 of 28 games played in a young season, the tell-tale signs of why you are somehow a sub .500 club tend to rear their heads. With our beloved Shuckers, it's pretty simple: if they field and throw the ball cleaner, improve the plate discipline and efficacy with men on, and find more consistency in the deeper parts of the lineup, they'll see more positive outcomes. If and when these things come to fruition, a winning ball club (and, despite their current record and struggles, I would argue this is very much a winning ball club) will start winning. The talent is there. The precision, at the current moment, is not. And honestly, this is just the nature of sports. There is plenty of season left to reverse some of these trends—May the young men soldier on and find the finer-tuned baseball moments in the games ahead. Keep on Shuckin'! Further Viewing Notes: Joey Wiemer blasted the fifth home run of his season. The young man is an extra-base machine. Before going 0-4 this past Saturday, Joey had an extra-base hit in his six previous games (five doubles and one home run). He added a single earlier in the contest and finished his evening 2 of 3 at the plate. A note about tonight's errors: Gabe Holt and Cam Devanney played alternate positions - third and first base, respectively. Let's roll with that. Gabe misplayed a couple of tricky ground balls in the fateful eighth, and he compounded this with a wild throw to the dirt in second. An inning to forget. Unfortunately, we've seen too many of those through 28 games. Thomas Dillard knocked in two rbi's on the evening, including this bottom of the seventh left-center field double to the wall. Dillard also took another walk - his 20th free pass of his season How fast is Garrett Mitchell? He's this fast. Wow. Let me also take a moment to mention the calming influence of Felix Valerio. This game-winning walk-off single aside, he is a pleasure to watch at the plate. Felix is a disciplined batter. Now that he has a few games under his belt returning from injury, I anticipate the OPS and OBP to continue rising. Kudos to Taylor Floyd for getting out of his seventh-inning two-men on jam. He had men on the corners - from two absolute dribbler infield hits (one I would argue was simply a missed foul call over the third base foul line) - by inducing an excellent 6-4-3 double play to exit his inning of work. Ending a seven-game losing streak is cause for celebration. Here's to better results ahead! Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 3, Jacksonville (Marlins) 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, please visit and review: Sounds Rally in Ninth Inning to Sink Jumbo Shrimp - Jonathan Davis Gets Go-Ahead RBI Single, Mario Feliciano Cracks Four Hits in 3-2 Win I recently discussed the AAAA prowess of our very own 34-year-old Josh Lindbolm. He entered the bottom half of the sixth inning with a legitimate chance at a no-hitter. However, it was clear that he was likely facing his final outs within one pitch. A 1-0 lead vanished as he relinquished a first-pitch line-drive double to deep left-center field. A triple and a single later; it's 2-1 Jumbo Shrimp. Nonetheless, Josh completed the inning and grabbed another out in the bottom of the seventh before departing. Another fine outing of mound work from a Nashville Sounds starting pitcher. Rinse and repeat. It's clockwork in 2022. Further Game Notes: Mario Feliciano returned from a brief absence and had a splendid 4 of 4 (including his fifth double on the season) evening at the plate. He managed a good game behind the plate as well. It was nice to see him back on the diamond, and any lingering effects of his minor injury have passed. Apparently, all Jonathan Davis does these days is walk-off baseball games. Since returning from his COVID stint, he's been fantastic and is yet another excellent 2021 free-agent addition playing lights out in Nashville. What a luxury to have so many competent Triple-A players on the roster. 2 2/3 more scoreless innings from the Sounds' bullpen. Tonight's master class was put on by Trevor Kelley, Peter Strzelecki, and Hobie Harris. Speaking of Trevor Kelley, he has not allowed an earned run since April 7 against Durham and has a 0.79 ERA (11.1 IP/1 ER) on the season. On Thursday, Kelley earned his first win and has allowed only nine hits and three walks to go with his 13 strikeouts. Hobie Harris is unscored upon in over ten innings of bullpen work. Manager Rick Sweet earns his 2,122nd managerial victory tonight. WOW. He has now moved into a tie with Bill Clymer at eighth overall in the history of the Minor Leagues. Can you say: legendary? Brice Turang and Mark Mathias continued their hot hitting ways with two hits apiece on the evening. It's hard to find two steadier infielders than these two right now in the International League. I hope both get their shot with the big club this season to discover whether their hot play in Triple-A can translate to the majors. That's a wrap for me on this fine 4-0 evening of May 10th. Please tune in for tomorrow's games and report. Additionally, please visit our daily Minor League game threads (pre-report) to partake in the discourse of the games - @damuelle and I are often quite active in those threads.

  6. Four affiliate victories on the evening made for an exciting evening and a joyous recap. Wisconsin with the lone blow-out while Carolina and Nashville pulled out late victories.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
