Down on the Farm: 4/29/2013

AAA  Tacoma Rainiers topped the Fresno Grizzlies 4-2:

Gary Brown(CF)- 1 for 2, 2 BB, SB(1).  BA= .212
Chris Dominguez(3B)- 2 for 4, 3B.  BA= .258.
Yusmeiro Petit(RHP)- 6 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 0 BB, 13 K's.  ERA= 6.23.

That is the type of line we need to see more often from Brownie.  Petit gave up a 3 run dinger to Liddi in the first inning and a solo shot to Eric Thames later.  In between, he was dominant.

AA  Reading Fightin' Phils vs Richmond Flying Squirrels postponed.

High A  Inland Empire 66'er's spanked the San Jose Giants 7-1:

Shawn Payne(DH)- 1 for 3, HBP, SB(6).  BA= .310.
Myles Schroder(3B)- 1 for 3, 2B, BB.  BA= .313.
Jeff Arnold(C)- 2 for 4.  BA= .200.
Ty Blach(LHP)- 6 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K's, GO/AO= 9/4.  ERA= 1.59.

I liked what I saw of Schroder in the first game of the series.  He's got nice size, athletic looking, switch hits, nice approach at the plate.  I wasn't able to make it to the game last night. I would like to see Blach in person. The line is typical of a soft-tossing LHP.

Low A  Augusta Greenjackets vs Kannapolis Intimidators postponed.


  1. A farm report from the future.

    What do you think the future holds for hector if Susac develops into a viable MLB starter?

    1. Way too early to speculate about that. Either one or both could become a starting catcher, career backup or traded. Given the choice I would say bet on the guy who already has had some success at the MLB level.
