DoTF: Wesneski’s 14 strikeouts stand out in weekend’s action

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

The RailRiders nearly went 3-0 against Rochester this weekend, but wound up blowing an 8-1 lead after seven innings today. I guess it makes up for their Saturday comeback when they were down 5-0 and 8-2.

  • Friday’s starter: RHP Deivi García: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K — 53 of 87 pitches were strikes (61%)First time completing five innings since August 15th. Too late to erase an ugly full season stat line (6.78 ERA in 85 innings), but finishing strong would be nice.
  • Saturday’s starter: RHP Shawn Semple: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB — 15 of 32 pitches were strikes (47%)Needless to say, his Triple-A debut didn’t go so well. 25 year-old Semple was the team’s 11th rounder back in ’17.
  • Sunday’s starter: LHP Matt Krook: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K — 53 of 85 pitches were strikes (62%)0.55 ERA in his last three starts…26 year-old has had a nice year after the team took him in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft.
  • In relief: RHP Ron Marinaccio: 1.0 IP, K, zeroes — 7 of 11 pitches were strikes (64%)…Pitched Friday…92 strikeouts, 1.85 ERA in 58.1 innings this year.
  • CF Estevan Florial: 5-11, 6 R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB, K, SB — Like Deivi, hasn’t been a good Triple-A season for Florial, but a strong finish would be great. He’s at .310/.394/.586 this month with a much more tolerable 20% strikeout rate.
  • C Donny Sands: 4-7, 2 R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K — 18 homers in 358 plate appearances between Somerset and SWB
  • 1B Chris Gittens: 2-9, R, HR, 2 RBI, 4 K
  • Leftovers: C Rob Brantly homered on Saturday…LF Trey Amburgey had two hits and a double the same night. 1B Chris Gittens homered on Friday

DoTF: Medina cruises, Wells and Volpe stay hot

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

Yesterday’s game against Rochester was rained out. They’ll play a doubleheader starting at 5:05pm today.

Double-A Somerset Patriots

The Patriots topped the Yard Goats 1-0 behind a brilliant seven innings from Luis Medina and good work from the bullpen (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Luis Medina: 7.0 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 WP — 64 of 92 pitches were strikes (70%) — Three of his five strikeouts came in the first two innings. Didn’t have the swing-and-miss going like his last two outings (22 strikeouts in 10 innings), but it didn’t matter.
  • In relief: RHP Addison Russ: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K — 11 of 12 pitches were strikes (92%)
  • In relief: RHP Nick Ernst: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K — 13 of 21 pitches were strikes (62%)
  • Prospect watch: SS Oswald Peraza: 1-3, RBI, BB, K — His single in the third drove in the lone run of the game.
  • Prospect watch: CF Brandon Lockridge: 1-3, BB, K, SB — He’s swiped 9 bags in 10 attempts from Somerset…Was 5-for-6 with Hudson Valley.
  • Prospect watch: 2B Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-3, 2B, BB, K, CS — He’s an extra base machine…needs just one more to reach 50 on the season.
  • Leftovers: As a 1-0 final score indicates, there wasn’t much offense to go around. The only others to reach base were LF Michael Beltre (two walks), 1B Dermis García (hit by pitch), and RF Thomas Milone (single).

DoTF: Waldichuk dominates and Pereira goes yard

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

The RailRiders’ nine-game losing streak is over. SWB topped Rochester, 4-1 (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: LHP Matt Krook: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K — 59 of 86 pitches were strikes (69%)
  • In relief: RHP Michael King: 3.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K — 30 of 41 pitches were strikes (78%)…Picked up the old school save…May see him in the majors soon depending on Gerrit Cole’s prognosis.
  • Hitting star: 1B Chris Gittens: 2-4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, K — Destroying Triple-A pitching to the tune of .333/.479/.703 with 11 homers in 142 plate appearances
  • Prospect watch: CF Estevan Florial: 1-3, R, BB, K, CS — Hitting .300/.440/.550 in his last fifteen games…Would be really nice for Florial to finish strong after what’s been a mostly difficult season.
  • Prospect watch: C Donny Sands: 1-4, R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 K — 7th homer in 132 PAs at this level
  • Leftovers: RF Trey Amburgey reached base three times (single, double, and a walk)…LF Ryan LaMarre and DH Socrates Brito also had hits.

DoTF: Weekend catch up

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

The RailRiders had a very rough weekend against Buffalo. They lost all four games against the Bisons, including Saturday’s double-header.

  • Sunday’s starter: RHP Clarke Schmidt: 4.1 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 6 K — 51 of 80 pitches were strikes (64%)…I know he needs innings after missing most of the year, but the Yankees ought to try him in the major league bullpen. They need the help, especially with Jonathan Loáisiga out.
  • Saturday’s game 1 starter: LHP JP Sears: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 2 HR — 57 of 92 pitches were strikes (62%)
  • Saturday’s game 2 starter: RHP Deivi García: 3.0 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 1 HR, 2 WP — 42 of 75 pitches were strikes (56%)…Sigh, his nightmarish season knows no end…7.09 ERA in 80 innings, including 19 homers allowed and an 89/63 K/BB ratio, plus 7 hit batters.
  • Friday’s starter: RHP Luis Gil: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 9 K — 55 of 78 pitches were strikes (71%)…Thankfully he will be back in the majors to make a start on Wednesday
  • In relief: RHP Ron Marinaccio: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K — Pitched Sunday. This guy should be on folks’ radars now. 19th rounder in 2017 has 88 strikeouts in 56.1 innings between Double-A and Triple-A. He’s Rule 5 eligible this offseason.
  • Rehab watch: RHP Michael King: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K – 18 of 22 pitches were strikes (82%)…Came in after Gil on Friday. Not sure what kind of role he would have on the major league team the rest of this season, but he’d be better than Brooks Kriske at the very least.
  • CF Estevan Florial: 1-9, R, 2B, 4 K — Siiigh
  • C Donny Sands: 3-11, 2B, 3 RBI, BB, K
  • Leftovers: RF Trey Amburgey had two hits and a homer on Saturday
