Down on the Farm: 6/3/2016

AAA  El Paso Chihuahuas outscored the Sacramento River Cats 7-6:

Gorkys Hernandez CF- 2 for 4.  BA= .276.
Mitch Delfino 3B- 2 for 4.  BA= .291.
Grant Green 1B- 4 for 4, 2 2B.  BA= .298.
Joan Gregorio RHP- 6 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 5 K's.  ERA= 4.71.

Gorkys is hitting .407 over his last 10 games.  Someone asked about a timetable for Gregorio.  I would think the Giants want him to spend the full rest of the season in Sacramento with a September callup.


AA  Game suspended after the top of the 3'rd inning with Harrisburg Senators leading the Richmond Flying Squirrels 4-1:

NTSH.  Kyle Crick allowed 4 runs in 3 IP.


High A San Jose Giants defeated the Visalia Rawhide 8-4:

Ronnie Jebavy CF- 1 for 4, HR(4).  BA= .240.
Steven Duggar RF- 3 for 4, HR(8).  BA= .289.
Ty Ross C- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .247.
Robbie Garvey LF- 2 for 4.  BA= .286.
Jason Forjet RHP- 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 11 K's.  ERA= 4.30.

Jebavy is hitting .300 over his last 10 games.  All 4 of his HR's have come in 13 games starting May 20.


Low A Augusta Greenjackets edged out the West Virginia Power 3-2:

Lucius Fox SS- 1 for 4, 3B.  BA= .208.
Miguel Gomez 3B- 2 for 4.  BA= .333.
Matt Winn C- 1 for 3, 2B, BB. BA= .236.
Jean Angomas LF-RF- 1 for 2, BB, SB(7).  BA= .204.
Michael Santos RHP- 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 2.91.
Tyler Cyr RHP- 4 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 4 K's.  ERA= 2.48.
Conner Kaden RHP- 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K's.  ERA= 4.79.

Per Covechatter's twitter feed, Santos left the game after getting hit by a comebacker off the bat of the first batter of the 3'rd inning.  He appeared to escape serious injury.  Kaden's ERA is inflated by a single disaster appearance on May 15.


DSL starts today.


  1. At the start of the year I'd thought that G. Hernandez was going to be the OF yo-yo this year, filling in when needed, so that Williamson got constant AAA playing time, such as the Giants several times said he needed. But in fact, it's Williamson who has lost AAA playing time for MLB bench time, getting neither game experience nor a chance to establish a big-league rhythm. I'm always certain that Bochy et al know what they're doing infinitely better than I know what they should be doing; but this decision puzzles me. Hernandez has MLB experience, plays all three OF positions ably (or at least did so in ST), and is expendable in that he's not central to the Giants' future plans, unlike perhaps Mac Williamson.

    1. I don't disagree with you here, Campanari. Most likely the problem is with the 40 man roster as either Hernandez or Green would need to be added whereas Williamson is already on.
