minor lines, 4/7/06

AAA: Fresno lost to Las Vegas 9-2

Fresno: RF Todd Linden: 0 for 2, 2 BB, 2 SO
Fresno: 1B Chad Santos: 1 for 3, HR, BB, GiDP
Las Vegas: RF Andre Ethier: 4 for 5, 2 2B
Las Vegas: 1B Joel Guzman: 2 for 3, HBP, SF, 2B, SO

Fresno: RHP Brian Cooper: 4.2 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 0 HR
Fresno: ??? Anderson: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 0 HR--1 HB

The rest of the Fresno offense was a couple singles by Fred Lewis and Brian Cooper.  The Grizzlies need more offense right now.  Ethier was the prospect traded by the A's for Milton Bradley.  Guzman is an even better prospect for the Dodgers.

An unimpressive start for minor league veteran Cooper.  Was that 2005 draftee Brian Anderson pitching in relief after being promoted from San Jose (when Correia was promoted from Fresno)?

AA: Connecticut defeated Portland 4-2

Connecticut: 2B Derin McMains: 1 for 3, BB, 2B, SO, SB
Connecticut: SS Jake Wald: 1 for 2, BB, 2B

Connecticut: LHP Pat Misch: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB 3 K, 0 HR--1 HB
Connecticut: RHP Joe Bateman: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 0 HR

The Defenders offense was led by the middle infielders, who are fringe prospects at this point, i.e., really too old to be prospects with much upside but performing well enough to be solid non-roster invitees to spring training.

Another solid pitching performance for the Defenders, as only R.D. Spiehs struggled.  A save for Bateman in a perfect 9th inning.

A+: San Jose hosting Visalia postponed by rain
(Doubleheader tomorrow at 5:00pm.)

A-: Augusta defeated Charleston 3-2

Augusta: DH Alex Requena: 2 for 4, BB, 2 SB
Augusta: 3B Pablo Sandoval: 3 for 4, 2 E
Augusta: 2B Anthony Contreras: 2 for 3, BB, GiDP

Augusta: RHP Dan Griffin: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 0 HR
Augusta: RHP Wayne Foltin: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 0 HR

The rest of the Greenjackets offense was a couple singles, a walk and a hit batter.  Contreras was the 9th round draft choice last year and seems to be an often overlooked member of the 2005 draft class.  Sandoval may be the best hitting prospect in Augusta (even ahead of Ben Copeland), although there are questions about his defense and ability to hit for power.  Last year minor league free agent Requena gave Marcus Sanders a good battle for the organization stolen base title.

At least according to the box score, a really nice start for Griffin, the 5th round selection last year.  Foltin was a late round selection, but he may have as much fastball velocity as Griffin (up to 94 mph).  A multi-inning save for him Friday night.
