Down on the Farm: 5/24/2017

AAA  Memphis Redbirds outscored the Sacramenton River Cats 9-5:

Kelby Tomlinson CF- 3 for 5, SB(6).  BA= .274.
Ryder Jones 1B- 2 for 4, BB.  BA= .273.
Austin Slater RF- 2 for 4, BB.  BA= .318.
Jae-Gyun Hwang 3B- 2 for 5, 3B.  BA= .280.
Joan Gregorio RHP- 7 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 1 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 3.02.

Is Kelby a super-utility player or the Giants CF of the future?  Apparently Boch is high on his CF potential.  Anybody else wonder what's going to become of Jae-Gyun Hwang?  Gregorio eats some innings.


AA Game 1  Binghampton Rumble Ponies(Rumble Ponies?) edged out the Richmond Flying Squirrels 1-0:

Sam Coonrod RHP- 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 4.76.
Reyes Maronta RHP- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 4.11.

I mean Flying Squirrels are an actual species of animals, but Rumble Ponies?


AA  Game 2  Binghampton Rumble Ponies blanked the Richmond Flying Squirrels 5-0:

Jose Flores RHP- 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 1.25.


High A  San Jose Giants outslugged the Lancaster Jethawks 11-7:

Ryan Howard SS- 4 for 5, 2B.  BA= .326.
Bryan Reynolds CF- 2 for 5, HR(2).  BA= .284.
Heath Quinn RF- 2 for 5, 2 2B.  BA= .361.
Dillon Dobson 1B- 2 for 5, HR(7).  BA= .263.
Gio Brusa DH- 2 for 5, HR(8).  BA= .234.
Jonah Arenado 3B- 3 for 5, 2 2B.  BA= .229.
Daniel Carbonell LF- 3 for 5, 2B.  BA= .298.

Lancaster is always a good place to pad the old stat line.  Howard makes headlines with his 4-hit game. Arenado has a 5 game hit streak in which he is 9 for 22.  Brusa stays hot.


Low A Augusta Greenjackets vs West Virginia Power cancelled X 2 due to rain.  I think that is 3 consecutive idle days due to rain for the GJ's.


  1. With Arroyo falling below the the dreaded Mendoza line, a couple 3Bmen are hitting better in Sacramento. Of course, so did Christian -- a lot better.
    Note that Núñez has the 2nd best BA on the the Giants active roster. If he keeps that up, maybe SF could get an OFer for him?

  2. So are there any reviews on how Kelby has actually looked in CF?

  3. For what it's worth, Hwang has 7 errors at this point. He has two at 1B and five at 3B. In the games I've watched he's bobbled a number of balls at 3B but was able to make the play. I know he willingly accepted a AAA assignment, but I believe he has an opt-out clause in his contract for July 1 if the Giants fail to promote him to the big leagues by then.

  4. Re: Jae-Gyun Hwang
    I would like to see the Giants trade Aaron Hill, send down Arroyo for more seasoning and give Hwang a go as 3B. Keep Nunez in OF for time being.
