SF Giants Minor Lines, 5/31

New, 55 comments

Sadly, Tyler Beede didn't pitch this day. But Kyle Crick did!

Casey McGehee supposedly has a gentleman's agreement with the Giants, that he will be brought back to the Active Roster by the end of this week or else he can choose to become a FA. Will this be the last time we see this sight in 2015?

HIGHLIGHTS: Jarrett Parker and Cristian Paulino both hit two HRs.

Sacramento won at Colorado Springs (Brewers), 10-5
they finish their four game wraparound series this afternoon

The RiverCats knocked the humidor out of commission in this game, with an offensive attack that included 22 baserunners. Six of their 15 hits went for extra bases, including three HRs. Jarrett Parker did this twice, but I'm only going to show it once.

Every member of the starting lineup reached based at least once, including SP Robert Coello (who went 1 for 3). All but Ronny Cedeno had at least one hit, and six members of the starting lineup reached base multiple times.

Robert Coello was effective in the environment. He kept the ball in the yard and allowed only 2 XBH. Mike Broadway pitched a perfect 9th inning. For the season, he has K'd 37 of the 90 batters he has faced (41%) and allowed only 19 baserunners and 3 ER. He's basically done a bunch of this:

In Kyle Crick's last two starts he has thrown 98 strikes, 96 balls, and actually it took a pretty efficient 5th inning yesterday to get that percentage over 50% on the good side. He's also thrown 11.2 innings and allowed 1 run. He's a riddle wrapped in a conundrum wrapped in a fastball winged to the backstop.  He managed to work his way through 6 walks in this game, including in one inning a leadoff walk to the pitcher, and yet leave the game in the 6th leading 3-0.

However, Joan Gregorio wasn't so fortunate. The 40 man member entered in the 8th and walked the only two batters he faced (both on 3-2 counts), and then Pedro Rodriguez came in and poured gasoline all over the nice pile of kindling he found. When the inning was over, a pleasant 3-0 lead had turned into a 6-3 loss.

Richmond hitters managed only 4 hits in the game, but they added 4 walks, and 2 of the hits were XB so they managed to be efficient run scorers on a day when they struggled. Mac Williamson had a triple off a top Phillies pitching prospect for the second consecutive day, this one off LHP Jesse Biddle.

San Jose hitters went up against the Angels #7 prospect Victor Alcantara, who had a very nice appearance in the Future's Game last summer, and the Giants battled against the strong armed RHP. SJ hitters struck out 16 times in this game, including 9 vs Alcantara in the 5 IP, and they managed only 8 hits, 5 of which came from Christian Arroyo and Hunter Cole. But they supplemented with 4 BBs. Cole also provided the teams only XBH. Those two also knocked in all three runs for the team and three was enough. The winning rally came in the top of the 9th when Galindo walked, stole 2b, advanced to 3rd on a WP and came home on Cole's third hit.

Arroyo, in his little time in the Cal league this year (40 PA) has a .500 BABIP and a 35% K rate. I'd like to see the latter come down as the former surely will. Dylan Davis had a sombrero in this game to kick his K rate up over 20%.

Chase Johnson threw a season high 6.2 IP, and though he also surrendered a season high 8 hits, no walks and only one XBH (double) helped limit the damage to solo runs in each of the first two innings.  Chase now has a 23% K rate this year (just under 9 k9) and an 8% BB rate.

LHP Christian Jones made his first appearance since April 19, thowing one scoreless inning (and was ultimately credited with the win). Ian Gardeck made his save dramatic when he threw away a comebacker from the leadoff batter and then walked the second batter of the inning. But he came back to K the next 3 to nail down the 3-2 win.

The Greenjackets have really enjoyed the friendly hitting climes of Asheville this weekend, scoring 23 runs in just their last two games and doubling their HR output for the month of May. Cristian Paulino entered the game having 1 HR, which didn't clear the fences, and he left the game with 2 more and both of them cleared the wall!  Paulino also played the infield for the first time this year. He was a regular infielder in the DSL and in the first three AZL seasons (he played in the rookie league AZL for four seasons), but since 2013 he has mostly played OF.

At the top of the order Fargas, Relaford, and Paulino reached base 8 times on 5 hits, 2 bb, and a HBP, and Skyler Ewing pitched in with two hits of his own, including his 12th double of the year. Augusta's offense was also helped out considerably by Asheville's 7 (7!) errors in the game, a full 5 of which came from 3b Josh Fuentes. Now that's a bad day!

Matt Gage was the recipient of all this largesse, and EJ Encinosa had his best appearance of the year, going the final 3 innings for the save.  The Asheville game story can be found here:
