Hey, I'm back. Let's dive straight into the notables from yesterday's minor league action.
Brett Lawrie: 3-for-5, double, triple. .373/.413/.618
Chris Woodward: 3-for-4, double, strikeout. .333/.377/.561
Jonathan Diaz: 0-for-2, 2 walks. .222/.371/.259
Danny Farquhar: 1.1 IP, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 SO.
Adam Loewen: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts. .225/.273/.350
The Other Notables:
Travis Snider: 1-for-3, walk, strikeout, stolen base. Balls in play were a groundball single and a flyout. So not that positive considering it's Moonraker in the PCL.
Brett Cecil: 6.2 IP, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO. Only 30% of the balls he allowed in play were groundballs, but he induced a very high number of popups: also 30%.New Hampshire:
Adeiny Hechavarria: 1-for-5, home run. .227/.244/.330. First home run of the season. Hopefully a turning point.
Moises Sierra: 3-for-4, strikeout. .328/.380/.469 and his line drive percentage (before this last game) was 29.1%. He might've been one of our best prospects if he hadn't been injured for so long.
Michael McDade: 2-for-4, double. .326/.356/.453 and so far he's struck out at lower percentage than last year in Dunedin, so that's impressive considering the difficulty of the jump to AA.
Zach Stewart: 6 IP, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 SO. Got 68.4% (13 of 19) balls on the ground, so that's a good outing even though we'd like to see lots of strikeouts as well.
Alan Farina: 1.2 IP, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 SO.
Jack Murphy: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts. Recently promoted from Lansing, this was his first game at AA after just 12 at bats above rookie level. Backing up Yan Gomes while d'Arnaud is on the DL.
Chad Jenkins: 6 IP, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 SO. Got 50% of the balls hit in play against him on the ground, so a very good start.
Justin Jackson: 4-for-7, home run, strikeout. .347/.441/.469
Brad McElroy: 2-for-6, 2 walks, 2 stolen bases. .256/.370/.436
Brad Glenn: 2-for-7, home run, walk, 2 strikeouts. .264/.309/.473
Sean Ochinko: 1-for-8. .145/.213/.217
Ryan Goins: 0-for-7, 4 strikeouts. .205/.244/.333
Carlos Perez: 2-for-4, 2 doubles. .329/.383/.452
Jake Marisnick: 3-for-3, double, walk, stolen base. .350/.447/.575. Has 10 stolen bases, caught stealing 3 times.
Michael Crouse: 1-for-3, walk, strikeout, 2 stolen bases (10 SB, 1 CS on the year). .239/.342/.522 With 8 BB, 12 SO, lots of power but few line drives at just 9.3% so far.

Marcus Knecht: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts. .347/.418/.571
