DoTF: Gregorius’ Scranton debut rained out

Here’s the first DoTF for Views from 314ft and my first time doing this. Here are some notes from across the system:

  • Though he didn’t get to play today, Didi Gregorius is expected to spend six days with the RailRiders. He was scheduled to play seven innings at shortstop today and then DH tomorrow. He may play in just one game Wednesday.
  • Forest Stulting of Baseball Prospectus (subs. required) wrote up Charleston’s Luis Gil after his start last week in which he gave up six runs. Despite a poor performance, Stulting was complimentary of the pinstriped farmhand.

“The Yankees could wait for Gil’s changeup to improve, but even on a night when he did not have his best stuff, the 6-foot-3, 176-pounder still looked like someone who is close to a High-A promotion.”

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: Rained out at home against Rochester, making it up with a doubleheader Wednesday.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: (6-5 win over Altoona)

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Rony Garcia: 3 2/3 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 2/4 GB/FB — 46 of 78 pitches (59%) were strikes … All five runs came with two outs in the fourth. Two walks loaded the bases before three straight hits … Just the sixth start in Double-A for the 21-year-old.
  • In Relief: RHP Trevor Lane: 3 1/3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 4/1 GB/FB — Helped keep the Thunder in the game after Garcia’s poor fourth inning, picked up the win.
  • Hitting Star: RF Rashad Crawford: 2-for-4, 2 RBI — Game-winning two-run single in 7th inning, completing a comeback from 5-1 down.
  • On Deck: DH Chris Gittens: 2-for-3, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 GIDP — Solo home run to lead off the fourth … 10th homer this season, batting .311/.440/.578 going into the contest.
  • Other Notables: There was a 25-minute rain delay in the fourth inning. CF Matt Lipka went 2-for-3, with a run, a SB and an outfield assist.

High-A Tampa Tarpons: (10-5 loss at Dunedin)

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Frank German: 3 2/3 IP, 7 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 2 HR, 5/2 GB/FB — 52 of his 88 pitches were strikes … He hadn’t allowed more than three runs in a start this season and came into the outing with a 3.03 ERA over seven appearances. The 21-year-old fourth-round pick went straight from short season to High-A this year.
  • In Relief: RHP Andrew Bellatti: 2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K — Bellatti pitched in his 199th career MiLB game. He signed out of Atlantic League in April and is a former MLB pitcher with the Rays (2015).
  • Hitting Star: 3B Oswaldo Cabrera: 3-for-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K — Was mired in a 1-for-18 slump over last four games before this one. Is batting just .233/.266/.301 for the season.
  • On Deck: C Jason Lopez: 1-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 PB — Two-run single in the eighth inning.
  • Other Notables: CF Pablo Olivares went 1-for-4 with a run, RBI and a walk. DH Isaiah Gilliam had an RBI double in the first inning.

Single-A Charleston RiverDogs: (7-4 loss vs. Columbia)

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Luis Gil: 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K, 1 HBP, 6/1 GB/FB — 58 of 88 pitches (66%) were strikes … After the aforementioned poor start, Gil had quite the bounceback. It’s his sixth start of 0 ER this season and could portend a call-up to Tampa.
  • In Relief: RHP Alex Mauricio: 1 1/3 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 2 HR — Yikes. This was Mauricio’s first appearance of the season after a 50-game drug-related suspension.
  • Hitting Star: CF Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K — He has two hits in four of his last six games … The 2018 fifth-round pick is batting .343/.403/.543 in May after a lackluster April.
  • On Deck: DH Frederick Cuevas: 1-for-2, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 SAC — The 21-year-old has a seven-game hitting streak going and has six doubles in his last five games. Brought his batting average from .229 to .293.
  • Other Notables: Day off for Josh Stowers, who was acquired in the Sonny Gray/Shed Long trades over the offseason. He had a three homers-in-three-days stretch at Asheville last week and is hitting well in Charleston.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for starting this site!

    Nice to see these reports are back.

    Also, I understand if you don’t want to give the entire box score, but in order for these to be really useful, you definitely have to reference how the big names/rising starts/top prospects did, even if they didn’t do much that particular night. For example, Canaan Smith, Hoy Jun Park and Kyle Holder are all missing from this update.

    Nice to see the return of DoTF. May want to slightly expand the summaries. Fans are interested in how the big names, top prospects and rising stars are doing, even when they don’t do anything special that night. Case in point, you left out Canaan Smith, Hoy Jun Park and Kyle Holder from this post.

    An aggressive schedule for Didi if they only plan on six games in Scranton. Looking forward to his return, but also don’t think they need to rush it.

      As the old RAB features return, I feel like someone gradually recovering from an illness.
