Down on the Farm: 7/6/2014

AAA  Tacoma Rainiers defeated the Fresno Grizzlies 7-6:

Adam Duvall(1B)- 3 for 5, 2 2B.  BA= .302.
Nick Noonan(SS)- 3 for 4.  BA= .251
Mike Kickham(LHP)- 6.1 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 3.61.

AA  Reading Fightin' Phils defeated the Richmond Flying Squirrels 6-2:

Matt Duffy(SS)- 2 for 4, HR(3), BB, SB(19).  BA= .338.
Jack Snodgrass(LHP)- 7 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 0 BB, 6 K's.  ERA= 3.39.

Snodgrass gave up 5 of the 6 runs in the 3'rd inning.  Add in the K's and BB's in the line and this looks like a BABIPing.  Matt Duffy's remarkable season rolls on.

High A  San Jose Giants outscored the Stockton Ports 8-4:

Chuckie Jones(RF)- 2 for 5, 2 2B.  BA= .267.
Brian Ragira(DH)- 2 for 4, HR(8).  BA= .244.
Ydwin Villegas(SS)- 2 for 3, SF, SB(4).  BA= .202.
Joe Kurrasch(LHP)- 7.1 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 2.12.

Low A  Augusta Greenjackets downed the Greenville Drive 10-5:

Cristian Paulino(CF)- 1 for 5, HR(2).  BA= .242.
Eric Sim(Catcher)- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .236.
Robert Ramer(RHP)- 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K's.  ERA= 0.00.

Ramer is a new FA signee out of indy ball.  He it 6'5", 198 lbs.  Played for Purdue then 1.5 seasons of indy ball.  That is all I know about him.

Short Season  Hillsboro Hops topped the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 11-9:

Christian Arroyo(SS)- 1 for 3, 3B, BB, SF.  BA= .300.
Will Callaway(3B-1B)- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .329.
Jonathan Jones(1B)- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .154.
Ethan Miller(RHP)- 5 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 6.85.

Rookie AZL  Giants were idle.

DSL  Giants were idle.


  1. Here is Ramer's profile page from Purdue.

    Richard in Winnipeg

  2. Giant Potential over on the left has a story about Ramer's signing with some more info. Apparently he's from the Bay Area and is excited to join his hometown team.

  3. Does anyone know what happened to Javier Herrera? I was really excited for him this year. Fresno website says 7-Day DL but he hasn't played a game since April. He did really well in a pitcher's league in Richmond and thought he would rake in Fresno. Wonder if he has a similar injury to Mac Williamson or ACL injury. Whatever the issue was he must be hitting his head against the wall because I am sure they would give him a solid look before Juan Perez if he was healthy and producing.

  4. Tyler Beede SIGNED! Let the nail-biting begin! Which Beede will we get? How about Door 1, 2, or 3?
