Short Minor League Recap: June 10

I know most of you like the written out analysis more than just the listed results, but they do cost a lot of time. Instead, I expect to do separate analysis articles from time to time. On to the performances..

Las Vegas (won 10-1)

Travis Snider: 2-for-5, home run, flyball single, 2 flyouts, popout. With Travis finally hitting another homer I thought he deserved top spot. No groundballs or strikeouts, either. Last 10: .231/.318/.410

Eric Thames: 1-for-5, double, 2 strikeouts. Last 10: .216/.286/.378

David Cooper: 4-for-5, double, strikeout. Season: .400/.457/.582. Okay, it's the PCL, but hitting .400 is going to get you noticed. Trade piece or legitimate Brett Wallace type prospect?

Brad Mills: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 5 BB, 8 SO, 38% GBs. Unusually wild for him, but then he did get the Ks. His ERA is 2.87 on the season.

Danny Farquhar: 1 IP, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 SO. Has now strung together 10 scoreless innings in his last 9 games with 8 Ks and 2 walks.

New Hampshire (won 6-2)

Henderson Alvarez: 6 2/3 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 6 SO, 67% GBs. Two of the few balls that were hit in the air went for home runs. Very nice start for the kid who's now known as "he who hit 101 (mph)". Is likely to take the spot of top pitching prospect if he keeps this up, pitching in AA at just 21 years of age.

Moises Sierra: 2-for-2, double, 2 walks. Perfect day at the plate, was not retired. Last 10: .211/.302/.474

Darin Mastroianni: 2-for-4, strikeout, 2 stolen bases. Last 10: .395/.467/.553

Travis d'Arnaud: 1-for-4, double, strikeout. Last 10: .278/.333/.500

Anthony Gose: 1-for-4, 2 strikeouts. Last 10: .162/.225/.297 with 3 BB and 14 Ks. (hyped too early?)

Adeiny Hechavarria: 0-for-3, walk, strikeout. Last 10: .119/.196/.286 but with 3 (u)BB and 8 Ks.

Michael McDade: 0-for-4, strikeout. Last 10: .205/.233/.308 (free swinging ways catching up to him?)

Dunedin (won 10-8)

Nestor Molina: 4 2/3 IP, 11 H, 7 ER, 1 BB, 5 K. Molina was far too hittable yesterday, and it shows up in his groundball numbers: just 38%, which is uncharacteristic for him. He still struck out 20% of the batters, but we were getting used to him K'ing 30%. It's not unlikely that with so many hits falling in, his defense didn't do him any favors either.

Justin Jackson: 2-for-5, 2 strikeouts. Last 10: .275/.383/.375 (striking out a lot lately)

Kevin Nolan: 3-for-5, home run, strikeout. Season: .328/.434/.513 (Lansing/Dunedin combined, though has hit a bit better in Dunedin)

A.J. Jimenez: 0-for-3, 2 walks. Last 10: .212/.297/.333 (good BB/K ratio at 4/5)

Lansing (lost 2-5)

K.C. Hobson: 1-for-2, 3 walks. Last 10: .156/.341/.156 (BB/K ratio great at 9/6)

Marcus Knecht: 2-for-3, walk, strikeout. Last 10: .459/.535/.703 (time for a promotion?)

Jake Marisnick: 2-for-4, strikeout. Last 10: .308/.349/.436 (BB/K ugly at 2/11)

Michael Crouse: 0-for-5, 3 strikeouts. Last 10: .194/.268/.222 (I want the Crouse from April back)

Carlos Perez: 1-for-5. Last 10: .162/.261/.270 (BB/K decent at 5/6)

Gustavo Pierre: 1-for-4, triple. Listed because that's about as good a day as you can get from Pierre. Well he did make his 33rd error. Ouch.

Daniel Webb: 3 1/3 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 2 SO, 67% groundballs. Was coming off a 9 strikeout game where no balls left the infield (100% GBs), but obviously couldn't command his stuff this time.
