Down on the Farm: 6/6/2018

AAA  Oklahoma City Dodgers pounded the Sacramento River Cats 9-3:

Steven Duggar CF- 1 for 4, 3B, BB.  BA= .273.
Kelby Tomlinson SS- 1 for 4, BB, SB(1).  BA= .222.
Tyler Beede RHP- 5.1 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 6 BB, 4 K.  ERA= 6.08.
Ray Black RHP- 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 4.35.

All I can do is look at Tyler Beede's line and sigh.


AA  Richmond Flying Squirrels quieted the Trenton Thunder 5-1:

Miguel Gomez 2B- 2 for 5, 2B.  BA= .305.
Ryan Howard SS- 2 for 2, 2 BB.  BA= .279.
Dylan Davis DH- 3 for 5, 2B, BB, SB(3).  BA= .260.
Garrett Williams LHP- 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 5.84.
Dillon McNamara RHP- 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 0.90.

This was Garrett Williams' most effective game in quite awhile but the peripherals are still ugly.  He's got 36 BB's in 44.2 IP on the season.


A+  Stockton Ports crushed the San Jose Giants 11-1:

Jalen Miller 2B- 1 for 4, 2B.  BA= .305.
Orleny Quiroz LHP- 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K's.


Low A  Greenville Drive blanked the Augusta Greenjackets 2-0:

Jason Bahr RHP- 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 4 K's.  ERA= 2.34.
Ryan Koziol RHP- 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 3.21.
John Timmins RHP- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 6.75.


DSL  Giants outscored Colorado 15-6:

Jean Pena 3B- 2 for 5, HR(1), BB.  BA= .333.
Luis Toribio DH- 1 for 4, HR(2), 2 BB.  BA= .300.
Samuel Jorge 1B- 2 for 5, 2B.  BA= .389.
Enoch Watts SS- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .333.
Robert Gomez RF- 1 for 4, 2B, BB.  BA= .143.
Jesus Gomez LHP- 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 4.00.
Josdeiker Marcano RHP- 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 0.00.

Pena, Toribio, Gomez and Gomez are all 17 yo and in their first pro season.  Marcano is 18 yo and in his first pro season.


  1. All I can do is look at Ray Black's line and ... drool!

  2. If Hanson plays everyday, maybe the Giants won't need a pinch hitter!

  3. Beede needs a rest or something.

    And what is Ray Black doing in AAA still? With Blach taking over long relief, I'd gladly see whether Black can improve over Johnson's mop-up duty, or maybe the G's bullpen is just too strong right now and you don't mess with a good thing if it ain't broke..?

    Wow, that's a situation I don't think we predicted when the season started..!! Well done Bobby Evans!!!

    1. black won't be up until september, barring injuires. the pen is pretty much set now.

    2. You think Holland and Gearrin will survive their marginal performance? Right now there are 12 pitchers, so there's sort of room for 1 more, plus 1 or 2 will be gone when Samardzija and Cueto are back.
      Holland has been bad but kind of unlucky, Gearrin is just bad.

    3. Maybe Black’s promotion to AAA this year, for the first time, suggests that he may be “freed” to San Francisco. He pitched 10 innings for Richmond in 2018, with one bad outing, and ten for Sacramento, with two successive bad outings. Otherwise he has been pretty untouchable, and in fact gave up more than one hit only once in any of those twenty innings. His K rate has been, of course, spectacular, and his BB rate acceptable—20 IP, 40 K, 9 BB.

  4. time to pull the plug on beede being a starter, he should pitch out of the pen for the rest of the year. this may be his only way to earn a september call up at this point.
