Down on the Farm: 6/20/2016

AAA  Sacramento River Cats defeated the El Paso Chihuahuas 7-3:

Gorkys Hernandez CF- 2 for 4, BB.  BA= .280.
Ruben Tejada SS- 2 for 4, 2 2B, SF.  BA= .188.
Mac Williamson RF- 1 for 3, HR(9), 2 HBP.  BA= .274.
Rando Moreno 2B- 2 for 3, SF.  BA= .248.
Clayton Blackburn RHP- 6 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 4 K's.  ERA= 3.50.

Tejada plays his first game since signing a minor league contract with the Giants.  Mac may be getting back on the shuttle.  Clayton Blackburn sez Hey!  Don't forget about me!

Short Season  Salem-Keizer Volcanoes topped the Boise Hawks 7-2:

Zack Bowers 1B- 2 for 2.  BA= .462.
John Riley C- 5 for 5, 2 2B.  BA= .538.
Gustavo Cabrera LF- 2 for 3.  BA= .400.
Melvin Adon RHP- 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K's.  ERA= 0.00
Rayan Hernandez RHP- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 0.00.

Huge night for Riley.  Can he find some consistency? Melvin Adon was signed as a 20 yo in 2014.  He pitched last year in the DSL with a line of 4-0, 2.28, 75 IP, 22 BB, 60 K's.  This year, he skips the AZL and starts in Salem-Keizer.  He's 6'3", 195 lbs.  An eyewitness report via Covechatter's twitter feed had his FB at 98-100 MPH last night.  Hello!  Major sleeper alert!  He won't stay asleep for long when word of that kind of velocity gets out.

Rookie AZL  Giants stomped the D'Backs 6-3:

Mikey Edie CF- 2 for 4, BB, SB(1).  BA= .500.
Chris Denorfia LF- 1 for 3.  BA= .333.
Heath Quinn RF- 1 for 2, BB, HBP.  BA= .500.
Brandon Van Horn 2B- 1 for 2, 2 BB.  BA= .500.
Sandro Cabrera LHP- 2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 9.00.
Chris Falwell RHP- 4 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 0.00.
Caleb Baragar LHP- 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 0.00.

I believe this was a rehab game for Denorfia who came out after 3 AB's.  Falwell is a 6'7" RHP drafted in the 16 round this year.  Baragar was the 9'th round pick.

DSL  Giants edged out the Mariners1 3-2:

Jose Rivero SS(18 yo)- 1 for 3, 3B, BB.  BA= .245.
Ismael Munguia LF(17 yo)- 2 for 4.  BA= .448.
Angeddy Almanzar 1B(17 yo)- 2 for 4.  BA= .347.
Miguel Figueroa RHP(18 yo)- 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 6 K's.  ERA= 7.11.
Jesus Reyes RHP(19 yo)- 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 0.00.
Jasier Herrera RHP(18 yo)- 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 0.00.

  1. According to Bill Mitchell who's always been a great source of prospect info in the AZL (he also is the one taking charge of the BA AZL chat in offseason), Adon's in 96-98 MPH but still with wildness. It's nice to see him go 6 innings too, looking like he can sustain the velo as the game goes on. I hope he's something else!
