SF Giants Minor Lines, 6/24

New, 47 comments

I'll take "Things that didn't turn out as awesome as I'd hoped" for $100, Alex.

Last night the Giants had their two highest pitching draft picks from the 2014 draft starting games, as well as an IFA kid with a six figure bonus. So, of course, the best pitching performance of the night came from Nik Turley, with a little help from friends:

Four pitchers combined on a 2-hit shutout for Sacramento, including the recently returned Mike Broadway. This was a pretty solid "pitch to contact" shutout, as Sacramento pitchers only had 6 Ks collectively vs. only 1 walk. Another of the relief pitchers used in this game was Clayton Blackburn. This is now Blackburn's third consecutive relief appearance and second consecutive 1 inning relief appearance.  With both Cain and Peavy taking turns in the rotation obviously somebody has to move out, but I do find it interesting that Blackburn is the guy they chose to put in the bullpen for this period rather than Turley, and that they're not using him in at least longer relief stints to keep him stretched out for a return to the rotation.

Ryan Lollis was a good deal of the game's offense. He had two of the three XBH in the entire game and scored all of the runs. Twice he doubled and scored; the first time on a WP and the second on Adam Duvall's RBI single (on which Kevin Frandsen was thrown out at home plate trying to extend the lead to 3-0).

Take that, snotty twitter account!

Well that didn't happen. This was the second consecutive difficult game for Beede in AA. In the last one, he pitched well until his final inning and also wasn't helped by his defense. This one was more of an overall stinker.  He only had one walk, but the 56 strikes in 92 pitches ratio suggests he wasn't able to pound the zone with his sinker as effectively as he has been doing earlier in the year. Most of his trouble came in bunches, which picks up on the one issue he was having in SJ, where he was less effective pitching from the stretch. Other than a solo HR all of the hits he gave up came in two separate innings that he couldn't get stopped. In his final inning, he got the leadoff hitter to ground out but then allowed hits to the last five batters he faced, with an Engel Beltre OF assist at 3b being the final out he got on the day. Phil McCormick came in an ended the inning in one batter, keeping his inherited runner stranded.

There's actually a blurb on Beede in this morning's "What the Scouts are saying" at Baseball Prospetucs. It's subscriber only but I feel ok noting that the phrase "out of whack" is used, though that might well be the natural result of this scout happening to see Beede on a night when things were a bit of a struggle.

Of course, in Tyler's view, the Squirrels game likely wasn't the worst thing that happened last night:

Devin Harris had a huge game for the Richmond hitters, with two big HRs.

SJ had the third off day of the Cal League All Star break
they begin their second half today

Augusta had the third off day of the Sally League All Star break
they begin their second half today.

For those who didn't already see it, here is David Lee's preview of the second half:

2014 4th round pick Logan Webb was in trouble right from the start last night, allowing the first four hitters he saw to reach base, including a bases loaded walk to the fourth. He allowed 3 runs in the 1st and had another 3 run inning in his final inning.   After two starts, Webb is featuring a 1.89 WHIP and has 4 BB to 3 Ks.  Here he is getting his one swinging strike out last night

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/qaMuK35b3Js" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

19 year old Rayan Hernandez the big (listed at 6'4", 230 lbs at 19) 34th round draft pick out of Puerto Rican BB Academy in 2014 had an effective second outing. He has 4 Ks, 0 BBs, and 2 Hits allowed in 4 innings this year.

Webb's opponent was another member of the 2014 Vandebilt staff, Jared Miller, who's laboring far away from the AA fields of former teammate Tyler Beede. But Miller had his way with the SK bats last night, allowing 1 run over 6 and striking out 7. In all, the Volcanoes batters K'd 12 times last night, vs 7 hits and 2 bbs. Yep, we know this one: when you have more Ks than TB+BB? Bad night at the plate.

The lone exception was 22 yr old C/3b Miguel Gomez. Gomez played the last three seasons in the DSL. Last year he hit .318/.367/.453 in the DSL with 5 HRs. But at 21, he was very old for the level. Now, leaping over rookie league to short season A-, he's a bit more age appropriate and he's continuing to hit, with 10 hits in his first 25 PA. Only 1 XBH so far.  He's swinging at pretty much everything with 0 BBs thus far, but he also only has 2 Ks, so he's showing good contact skills. By contrast, three of his teammates exceeded his season K total in last night's game.

Something to keep an eye out for, the Volcanoes You Tube channel is doing a lot of great work this year. Looks like they're trying to put out game recaps at least each series and possibly each game, but they're often coming out after I put the ML up. Below is the game recap for Tuesday, complete with interviews with manager Kyle Haines and 2b Junior Amion as well as game footage. It's quite good. I'll try to edit these in when I see them pop up, but if you subscribe to You Tube channels you might want to add Volcanoes TV to your subscriber list.

Manuel Geraldo continues to have an excellent repeat year in the DSL. The 18 year old SS hit .251/.323/.338 last year as a 17 year old. This was his 2nd HR of the year and of his career.  Sandro Fabian not only had two hits with a double, but he also had his 7th OF assist of the year in 21 games played. Andres Angulo is a 17 year old Catcher from Colombia making his pro debut this year and thus far he's off to a nice start hitting .306/.375/.389. The DSL hitters banged out 13 hits in this one with 2 BBs and just 6 Ks. They continue to be among the best contact teams in the league, one of only three teams with fewer than 130 Ks; they're currently 3rd in the league in fewest Ks, though they've played 2 more games than the two teams in front of them.

RHP Sandro Cabrera, $125k signee who turned 20 on Monday, has surrendered just 6 hits and 2 ER in his last two starts. For the year he's got a 1.12 WHIP with 28 Ks and 8 BBs in 26 innings. 17 year old Jasier Herrera, a $150K signee last winter from Colombia has 15 Ks to 3 BBs in his 10 IP out of the pen this year.

BA disappointed me yesterday by pushing off the announcement's for the Futures Game Roster, but it should come today so we'll have something to talk about.  In the meantime, here's their 1st half prospect studs and duds. No Giants on either stud or dud list, but that's in large part because the Giants system is so far to the periphery of the prospect watching world right now. Such is life:

With the second halves starting up tonight we have all 7 clubs in action tonight. Rehabbing major leaguers Matt Cain and Tommy Hanson are on the mound for Sacramento and SJ, while Kyle Crick rotates back off the DL to make the start for Richmond after skipping a start. Crick hasn't pitched since June 13.

Back at it guys:
