Recapping The Minors: Weekend Edition (May 24-26)

The Houston Astros and Oklahoma City RedHawks both had 0-fer-weekends, whereas the rest of the organization combined for an 8-2 record. Let’s take a look at the notable stat lines from this weekend.

 

Roster Moves:

From EST to CC – Sergio Escalona

From EST to QC – Brian Holmes

From QC to EST – Jesse Wierzbicki

 

Oklahoma City (27-23) 0-4 over the weekend

Jonathan Villar – 3/15, 1 HR (4), 1 3B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 6 K, 2 CS (6)

Jake Elmore – 3/12,  5 BB, 1 K, 1 SB (9)

Brett Wallace – 1/12, 1 HR (8), 3 RBI, 2 BB, 4 K

Brandon Laird – 2/5, 1 HR (3), 1 RBI, 1 K

Marc Krauss – 4/10, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 4 BB, 2 K, 1 Error (2)

Brad Peacock (L) – 5.2 IP, 4 Hits, 5 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, 1 HR – 27 K in 21.1 IP at OKC

Asher Wojciechowski (L) – 5.1 IP, 7 Hits, 5 Runs, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Brett Oberholtzer (L) – 5.1 IP, 4 Hits, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 1 HR

Philip Humber – 4 IP, 4 Hits, 3 Runs, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR

Bullpen (L) – 7.2 IP, 5 Hits, 3 ER, 7 BB, 7 K, 2 HR

Notes: The RedHawks struggled this weekend as evidenced by their 0-4 record. The pitching was pretty solid, but some errors proved costly in a few of the games. The RedHawks lineup is filled with potential major league players like Marc Krauss, Jonathan Villar, Austin Wates, and Jake Elmore, as well as former Astros like Brett Wallace, Brandon Laird, and Fernando Martinez. They should break out of this cold streak, as the talent is there to be one of the best in Triple-A.

 

Corpus Christi (29-20) 2-1 over the weekend

George Springer – 2/8, 3 RBI, 5 BB, 3 K

Domingo Santana – 2/10, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 CS (1)

Max Stassi – 2/10, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K – Playing well as of late

Jiovanni Mier – 3/9, 4 BB

Michael Foltynewicz – 5 IP, 0 Hits, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 K – 0.86 ERA in 21 IP for CC

David Martinez (W) – 4 IP, 1 Hit, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K – 8 wins on the year

Ruben Alaniz (W) – 5 IP, 6 Hits, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Jorge De Leon – 2 IP, 1 Hit, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Sergio Escalona – 1 IP, 1 Hit, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 HR

Pat Urckfitz – 1 IP, 1 Hit, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Carlos Quevedo (L) – 3 IP, 8 Hits, 4 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 2 HR

Andrew Robinson – 1.1 IP, 4 Hits, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

Josh Fields – 1 IP, 3 Hits, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Matt Heidenreich – 2 IP, 0 Hits, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Notes:  Since starting the season late due to an injury, Max Stassi has been putting it together lately. Stassi is now hitting .288 thanks to a 11-game hitting streak* which ended on Sunday. Stassi is now part of a pretty good group of catcher’s in the farm, but may be the best one of the group. Stassi will likely continue at CC for the time being, and may get a shot at OKC later in the year.

Theron Geith – 2 IP, 1 Hit, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Kyle Hallock (W) – 4 IP, 5 Hits, 4 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 3 HR

Jonas Dufek – 1 IP, 0 Hits, 1 Run, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Notes: Of course we all know about Preston Tucker and Andrew Aplin, but one player who many haven’t heard of is Joe Sclafani. The 14th round pick in the 2012 draft, Sclafani batted .270 in his first 70 games at Tri-City in 2012. He started 2013 at Quad-Cities, and made his way up to Lancaster earlier this year. Since Nolan Fontana has been on the DL, Sclafani has taken advantage of the playing time. After hitting his first home run Sunday, Sclafani is hitting .393 in 15 games. He has also shown a knack for getting on base with his .507 OBP. We can expect some regression in those numbers, but Sclafani is positioning himself to be a sleeper prospect if he continues to put up good numbers the rest of the year.

 

Quad Cities (26-23) 3-1 over the weekend 

Teoscar Hernandez – 1/11, 2 BB, 5 K, 1 SB (14), 1 CS (2)

Carlos Correa – 4/13, 1 3B, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 2 K, 2 SB (5), 1 Error (7)

Terrell Joyce – 2/6, 1 HR (2), 7 BB, 3 K – Love the walks!

Jordan Scott – 5/10, 4 BB, 1 K, 1 SB (12)

Lance McCullers – 5 IP, 4 Hits, 3 Runs, 2 ER, 4 BB, 2 K

Daniel Minor (W) – 4 IP, 2 Hits, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

Colton Cain (L) – 4.2 IP, 4 Hits, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K – Good line in losing effort

Richard Rodriguez – 1.1. IP, 0 Hits, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Mike Hauschild (W) – 5 IP, 7 Hits, 5 Runs, 4 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Cameron Lamb (S) – 2 IP, 3 Hits, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Brian Holmes – 3 IP, 3 Hits, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Gerardo Sanchez (W) – 2 IP, 1 Hit, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Jordan Jankowski (S) – 4 IP, 1 Hit, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

Notes: After losing six in a row from May 17th-23rd, the RiverBandits finally put together a win on Friday, and another two more over the four games this weekend. Even in minor league baseball, losing streaks can be tough on players and it was important to snap the streak. The pitchers had a pretty good weekend, and the offense did enough to get some wins!

 

Today’s Scheduled Starting Pitchers (According To Team Website):

OKC – Ross Seaton (8.21 ERA)

CC – Nick Tropeano (3.59 ERA)

LC – TBD

QC – Vincent Velasquez (3.80 ERA)
