SF Giants Minor Lines, July 14

New, 36 comments

Shortest slate of the year. Good thing there was a WOWZA performance in one of the games to keep these Minor Lines from being dull.

So you see, if I may be indulged in a little self-congratulatory chat, the real key to Earnest Ragging (TM) is not the hectoring, the castigation and denigration, but rather the conjunction of the sour complaints with on the other hand, praise, reward (in the form of putting players high on your personal prospect ranking, say), letting the player know you believe in them and see a greater performance in the future, while beating them mercilessly with your snark stick. It can't be done clumsily. There's an art to it.

Ooh! Majestic! Nicely done, Aramis. Now you just keep on being hot and try not to be terrible anymore!

HIGHLIGHTS: Go back and watch the video!

Sacramento was off for the second day of the AAA All-Star break

Let's have a look at how the first half went statistically for the RiverCats. The following is from FanGraphs for every batter who took more than 100 PA or pitched more than 15 innings in Sacramento so far (excluding players who have left organization), including hyper links to player pages on FanGraphs (apologies for their ungodly awful hyperlink font):

Hey an actual game! And what have we here, another Aramis Garcia highlight?

Aside from Aramis' huge night, the game was probably most notable for being Chuckie Jones' 2015 debut after serving a 50 game suspension for a second failed test of a recreational drug I'm sure we can all guess. Chuckie went 0 for 5 with 2 Ks in his return to the Sally.

On the mound, Sam Coonrod had a solid game vs. what is certainly the toughest offensive unit in the Sally league. He was touched up by the $70mm prospect Yoan Moncada for a two-run HR and none of the top three bats in the order (Moncada, Michael Chavis, and the precocious Rafael Devers) struck out against Coonrod. Still the six inning performance with just 1 ER vs an exceptional minor league offense was highly encouraging.  On the season now, Sam has 83 Ks, 26 BBs, 1.21 WHIP in 80.1 IP. Moncada's HR was just the 2nd he's allowed on the year.

In the end, this game played out like many of Augusta's early season affairs did, with the bullpen giving up late inning runs in bunches. A two run rally in the 9th wasn't quite enough. Garcia got his 4th RBI with a single that brought the Greenjackets within a run and sent the tying run to 3b. But Chuckie Jones K'd to end the game.

In conclusion, let's (sort of) watch Aramis Garcia do something else good:

Sandro Fabian, who'd been out of the lineup for a few days, returned with his second three-hit game of the year. Fabian, the biggest IFA signee for the Giants last year ($500k). Fabian, who features a big leg-kick in his trigger, hasn't shown much power this year but the Giants believe  he projects for good raw power. His peripherals, 17% K rate and 5% BB rate, are less aligned than you'd like to see vs this level of competition.

That goes doubly so for Francisco Medina, who now has a 24% K rate and a miniscule 4% BB rate, to go with his impressive .200 Iso and 30% H/XBH. The youngster definitely makes hard contact when he makes contact, but he is clearly letting the barrel fly without much idea of where it's going to go. If you'd like a positive outcome for somebody who Ks this much in the DSL, you can point at former Giant Jose Guillen, who as a 17 year old K'd 55 times in 234 AB, but also showed prodigious power with 11 HRs. He also had close to a 10% BB rate.

Raffi Vizcaino has had an excellent year, with a K per inning, and better than 4:1 K:BB. He has allowed just 6 ER in 41.2 IP. After a lost year in 2014, the $200k signee in 2013 will almost certainly be heading stateside in the fall.

Starting to get back to normal today with four games scheduled. Two of them are on MiLB.tv, including Ray Black taking the start for SJ. The AAA and AA All-Star Games are as well.
