I’ve got a new article up at Hardball Times on everyone’s favorite first baseman from Eastlake High…
No games scheduled in the Pacific Coast League.
Double-A — South All-Stars 7, North All-Stars 3
Kyle Blanks, Chad Huffman, and Craig Cooper combined to go 0-for-9 with a walk. The other Missions representative, Matt Buschmann, worked two scoreless innings of relief.
No games scheduled in the California League.
Low-A — Fort Wayne 8, West Michigan 0
Drew Cumberland (SS): 1-for-2
Lance Zawadzki (DH): 3-for-5, 2 2B
Justin Baum (3B-2B): 2-for-4, HR, BB
Yefri Carvajal: 0-for-3, BB
Felix Carrasco (1B-3B): 1-for-2, 2 BB
Brad Chalk: 0-for-4
Wynn Pelzer: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 2 BB, 5 SO, 3 WP (9 GO)
Robert Woodard: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 2 SO
Cumberland left the game in the second inning with a back injury. It’s not certain whether this is related to the problem that forced him to the disabled list at the end of May.
Short-Season-A — Eugene 7, Spokane 6
Rookie — AZL Royals 6, AZL Padres 5
Hansen isn’t a prospect, but he played at USD, so I’ll be keeping an eye on him.
Information often is slow to arrive from the Dominican Republic, but I’ll try to track a few guys down there as best I can:
Jonathan Galvez: .417/.600/.694, 13 BB, 6 SO, 3 SB
Rymer Liriano: .176/.291/.392, 11 BB, 37 SO, 6 SB
Both are 17 years old; Liriano just turned 17 last week. Anyone else worth following? I’m open to suggestions…
