Minor League Recap: Sierra, McDade, Marisnick hit homers, McGuire does well.

Las Vegas (5-3 win):

Scott Podsednik: 1-for-2, double, two walks. .220/.373/.366, 10 BB to 6 SO.

Brett Lawrie: 1-for-4. .342/.383/.550, has cooled off a bit, 5 BB to 24 SO.

Travis Snider: 2-for-4, double. .524/.630/.619, is doing everything but hitting home runs. How often will you see Snider having a higher OBP than SLG? 6 BB to 2 SO.

Dewayne Wise: 1-for-2, 2 walks. .372/.417/.558, 3 BB to 7 SO, homered the day before (which I didn't recap).

Eric Thames: 3-for-4, triple. .336/.413/.545, 9 BB to 22 SO, if we don't count the intentional walks.

Adam Loewen: 0-for-2, walk, strikeout. .247/.296/.449, 7 BB to 28 SO, homered the day before.

Luis Perez: 7 IP, 3 ER, 3 BB, 3 SO, lots of groundballs. I liked the idea of making him a reliever.

New Hampshire (10-5 win):

Anthony Gose: 0-for-3, 2 walks. .224/.296/.265, 9 BB to 20 SO, which is okay, but hits the ball on the ground too often.

Moises Sierra: 1-for-4, home run, strikeout. .303/.345/.474, 4 BB to 9 SO, has 4 homers but just 1 double and no triples!

Michael McDade: 2-for-4, home run, (intentional) walk. .351/.388/.526, 5 uBB to 21 SO, has been on a tear lately.

John Tolisano: 2-for-5, double. .220/.324/.322, 9 BB to 17 SO, hasn't gotten as many at bats as the regulars.

Dunedin (3-1 win):

Deck McGuire: 6 IP, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 SO. Only 26.7% (4 of 15) groundballs though, something that remains McGuire's biggest weakness. It's not that flyball pitchers can't survive in the majors, but it's pretty tough in the AL East.

A.J. Jimenez: 2-for-4, triple, strikeout. .344/.379/.500, 5 BB to 20 SO.

Aaron Hill: 1-for-3, hit by pitch, strikeout. Seems a bit old for the level at 29. Hope he's back soon.

Ryan Goins: 0-for-1, 2 walks. .238/.297/.381, has drawn 3 walks in the last 2 days, after he had drawn 4 in all of April.

Lansing (4-12 loss):

Jonathan Jones: 0-for-2, 2 walks. .255/.375/.319, 8 BB to 5 SO

Gustavo Pierre: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts. .193/.260/.261, 8 BB to 25 SO, homered, doubled and walked on wednesday though.

Jake Marisnick: 2-for-4, home run, strikeout. .344/.434/.563, 11 BB to 22 SO, well on his way to becoming a top 100 prospect!

Marcus Knecht: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts. .274/.366/.452, 7 BB to 18 SO, hitless in May (5 games) with 9 Ks in 17 ABs.

Michael Crouse: 0-for-3, 2 strikeouts. .235/.330/.519, 8 BB to 16 SO, homered and doubled on wednesday. 14 SB to just 1 CS, he's a real toolsy guy.

Casey Lawrence: 5.1 IP, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 SO. Bad start for him. Unlikely to make it as a starter, given the depth of pitching prospects in the system.
