Padres Farm Report (29 Apr 08)

Triple-APortland 5, Oklahoma 4

Craig Stansberry: 0-for-2, 2 BB
Jody Gerut: 2-for-4, 2 HR
Chase Headley: 1-for-3, HR, BB
Brian Myrow: 2-for-4
Edgar Gonzalez (DH): 1-for-4
Nick Hundley: 0-for-3
Chip Ambres (CF): 1-for-3
Oscar Robles (SS): 0-for-2, BB
Shawn Estes: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 HR, 3 BB, 3 SO
Paul Abraham: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 1 BB, 4 SO
Adam Bass: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 1 BB, 1 SO
Jared Wells: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 2 BB, 2 SO (28 pitches, 15 strikes)

Nice game from Gerut. After a slow start, he’s playing well. Robles has been seeing most of the action at shortstop because Luis Rodriguez suffered a “right hook of hamate fracture” (it’s in the wrist) and has been placed on the disabled list. Outfielder Will Venable was reinstated from the DL to take Rodriguez’s place on the roster.

Double-AMidland 12, San Antonio 3

Chad Huffman (DH): 0-for-3, BB
Drew Macias: 1-for-4
Jose Lobaton: 0-for-3, SF
Craig Cooper (1B): 2-for-4
Steve Garrison: 3 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 1 HR, 3 BB, 1 SO
Neil Jamison: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 1 BB, 3 SO

Rough night for Garrison. Finesse pitcher, bandbox ballpark… it happens. Utility infielder Ray Chang worked a scoreless eighth and struck out former Padres farmhand Todd Donovan to end the frame. (Amusingly, Donovan once was traded for Brett Dowdy, who started at third base for Portland San Antonio in this one but finished up at second, replacing Chang.)

High-ALancaster 8, Lake Elsinore 6

Javis Diaz: 1-for-5, SB
Cedric Hunter: 2-for-3, 2B, 2 BB
Eric Sogard: 1-for-5, 2B
Mitch Canham: 1-for-4
Rayner Contreras: 1-for-3, HBP, SB
Nathan Culp: 5 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 2 HR, 1 BB, 3 SO
Ernesto Frieri: 1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 0 SO

Another day, another double for Sogard.

Low-A

Fort Wayne at Kane County, postponed. Outfielder Danny Payne has been placed on the disabled list for undisclosed reasons.

  1. Rodriguez has certainly started the season off well:

    http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?n=Luis%20Rodriguez&pos=3B&sid=milb&t=p_pbp&pid=425904

    50 ABs, 400/464/540, 6 BB and no strikeouts so far.

  2. Brett Dowdy started at third base for San Antonio … just being a nitpic …

  3. UT’s minor league blog reported something today I did not know …

    http://www3.signonsandiego.com/weblogs/minor-league/2008/apr/29/rodriguez-out-gerut-hrs-twice/

    Estes is eligible to sign with another team after May 5 if the Padres don’t promote him.

    … hmmm … ok … that’s good for Estes … I guess I’m hoping they call him up and use him out of the pen …
