SF Giants Minor Lines 5/18

New, 19 comments

I don't know what it is, but seeing Perez and Ishikawa with big hits just make me happy somehow.

I might think that in hiring Dan Jennings to be a major league manager, that maybe a good idea would be to find him a highly experienced bench coach, who had maybe some credibility with the players from having played in the majors himself, and had a strong recent track record of making in game decisions in real time of a major league game.

But hey! yeah, good luck with that Mike! Hope it goes well for you.

HIGHLIGHTS: Juan Perez had 2 HRs, 1SB, and 5 RBIs. Carlos Triunfel had 2 doubles and a HR.

Sacramento won at Albuquerque (Rockies), 12-5

RiverCats go BOOM! in this one with a good ol' fashioned PCL explosion. They had 18 hits, including 7 XBH to completely overwhelm the Isotopes. Four different Sacramento hitters had 3 hits on the game, but the big bat was JCP, who was on base 4 times, had his 8th SB of the year, and hit his first two HRs.

Carlos Triunfel also had a big day with two doubles and his 1st HR of the year.  Sacramento scored in five separate innings (including four multi-run innings) and got out to such a big lead that Albuquerque's five run 4th only momentarily put them back in the game.

Ty Blach had one very bad inning in which he allowed 7 hits and all 5 of his ER, but he weathered that thanks to his offensive support, and was nearly perfect the rest of the game. He did allow a walk though (bad, Ty!, Bad!). His 3.83 ERA is about a half run below league average. Okert and Hall retired all six batters they faced.

Hoo boy, did this one take a left turn on the way to good. It started out very promising as Devin Harris keyed a 5-run explosion in the 2nd inning:

Oh hey, video evidence!

<iframe src='http://www.milb.com/shared/video/embed/embed.html?content_id=121654583&width=600&height=336&property=milb' width='600' height='336' frameborder='0'>Your browser does not support iframes.</iframe>

But from the 3rd through the 6th the Squirrels only got one additional hit. A leadoff single in the 7th was wiped out by a DP and a leadoff double in the 8th was left stranded.  In the end, a nice offensive night was wasted by poor pitching (and an uncharacteristically tough fielding night from Delfino). Every Richmond starter had at least one hit, with a 12-hit attack overall, including 6 XBH.

Given an early big lead, Lujan handed it right back and couldn't manage to get out of the 5th inning. Lujan's 5.59 ERA is supported by an almost equally high FIP at this point. His K rate is a bit below league average and his BB rate is right at league average, and at the moment the lefty is looking like he's plateauing at AA. We'll see if he can adjust to the level as the season goes on. Edwin Quirarte's second appearance was no more effective than his first, and frankly, I really question what the purpose was in bringing him back into the org.

Though they did manage to win one game of the set, SJ's frustrations with Visalia continue as the Rawhide has totally dominated the Giants for most of the last two seasons. SJ had 12 baserunners on 9 hits, including 2 doubles. But four of the hits, including both doubles, were clustered together in the 2nd inning (when they scored all three runs) and the rest of the game they were seldom able to press offensively and string together baserunners.  The top four hitters in the lineup, which has been the strong core of the offense, had 8 Ks in this game with 2 Ks each.

Ryder Jones is now hitting .226/.250/.302 in May with a 22% K rate, 5% BB rate and .076 Iso.

This was easily Chase Johnson's worst start in the Cal league this year as he failed to even come out for the 4th inning. He also allowed his most Runs in a game this year, surrendered his first HR of the season, and tied for his lowest K output in a game. He also tossed in 3 WPs. Just couldn't get in rhythm. The game was 5-3 by the time he departed and then Luis Ysla came in and gave up two more, allowing three hits including a double and a triple in his first inning of work. He settled down after that but didn't show the swing and miss stuff he featured in his first relief appearance.

Ben Turner was Joe Ritzo's guest on yesterday's pre-game show, and he talked a bit about the wacky game on Sunday.

Lastly, injury rehab news for Tyler Horan (h/t to Grant)

With a two-run top of the first, it looked for a bit like the road magic was going to perk the Augusta offense back up, but no such.  Fargas' disappearance from the lineup has coincided with the first serious cold stretches for both Arenado and Riley, and with Ewing's continued struggles and Garcia's only slightly improving struggles, there's a bit of bite missing from the Greenjacket lineup. Over the last 10 days Arenado's hit .185/.207/.222 and Riley has hit .136/.208/.182.  It all adds up to a team-wide slump. Can't help but think that Johneshwy's return would help somewhat, but it's also worth noting that the team is, like the Padres, extremely unbalanced to the RH side. Steven Neff's arrival gave the roster only its second LHH and the other is backup C Jared Deacon.

On the pitching side, Nathanael Santiago's follow up to his 10 K performance wasn't quite as dynamic, though he was throwing a perfect game entering the 5th. However, once he allowed his first hit he seemed to unravel and he never got out of the inning. Before he left he walked three, allowed another single and balked, and his replacement, Montero, walked two more before the inning was done, essentially gifting all 4 Savannah runs and the game.  For the season however, Santiago's 30% K rate and 10.5 K/9 are still among the best of the pitchers on this team, slightly above even Jose Reyes.

Good day for starting pitching as Clayton Blackburn, Kyle Crick, and Keury Mella all take the mound, along with Matt Gage for Augusta.
