Down on the Farm: 5/7/2018

AAA  Sacramento River Cats defeated the Fresno Grizzlies 6-3:

Dereck Rodriguez RHP- 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K's.  ERA= 3.45.

Maybe Pudge's kid is a prospect after all?  Fresno has a serious lineup.  3'rd QS in a row.  Take out his poor first start of the season and he has a 2.60 ERA with 26 K against 7 BB in 27.2 IP.  Factor in that it's the PCL?  Pretty impressive!


AA  Akron Rubber Ducks downed the Richmond Flying Squirrels 6-3:

Miguel Gomez 2B- 1 for 4, 3B, BB.  BA= .293.
Aramis Garcia C- 2 for 5.  BA= .233.
Ryan Howard SS- 2 for 4.  BA= .314.
Ronnie Jebavy CF- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .207.
Ryan Halstead RHP- 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 1.69.
Caleb Simpson RHP- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 0.79.

Garrett Williams gave up 5 BB's and 4 ER in 1.2 IP.


A+  San Jose Giants were idle.


Low A Delmarva Shorebirds edged out the Augusta Greenjackets 4-3:

Heliot Ramos CF- 2 for 5, 2B.  BA= .214.
Manuel Geraldo DH- 3 for 4, 2B, 2 SB(9).  BA= .295.
Logan Baldwin RF- 1 for 2, 2 BB, SB(12).  BA= .220.

Heliot Ramos was in a big slump.  Good to see he's healthy after a recent OF collision.  Manuel Geraldo has been a much stronger second half player up to now, so hopefully this is the season he gets over the Augusta hump.  I still have high hopes for him as an IF prospect.  He's hitting .349 over his last 10 games.


  1. Yeah, I was worried after Heliot's collision, so good to hear, yes, that he's healthy. But he looks built like a linebacker, so I felt more sorry for the guy he ran into. Since he's the CF, shouldn't he had priority on the ball? Didn't see where the collision happened, though.

  2. It's Duggar time -- draw straws between Curly, Moe, and Larry to see who gets DFA'd
