New, 26 comments

Phillies Minor League Roundup for 4/25/19

Weekend Probables:

LHV: Ranger Suarez, JoJo Romero, Nick Pivetta
REA: Tom Eshelman, Ramon Rosso, Adonis Medina
CLR: Kyle Young, TBD, Julian Garcia
LWD: Tyler McKay, Jhordany Mezquita, Francisco Morales

Pawtucket 5, Lehigh Valley 2

Tyler Viza - 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 5 K, 2 HR, 4 GB, 1 FB
Kyle Dohy - 1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 2 K
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 4, 2B, 3 K
Malquin Canelo - 3 for 4, R

Kyle Dohy received a promotion to AAA before the game. Since being drafted, Dohy had 155 strikeouts in 98.1 innings coming into the game. He also had 67 walks as well, so command has been an issue despite “the stuff”. Dohy took the loss by giving up the go-ahead runs in the bottom of the 7th in a 2-2 game. Andrew Romine provided the runs via a RBI single and sac-fly.

Reading 8, New Hampshire 1

Mauricio Llovera - 5 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, 3 GB, 6 FB
JD Hammer - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, K
Garrett Cleavinger - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Luke Williams - 2 for 4, R, BB, 2 K, SB
Adam Haseley - 1 for 2, 2 R, RBI, 2 BB, SB
Austin Listi - 0 for 4, R, BB
Darick Hall - 2 for 3, 2 R, 2B, HR, 5 RBI, BB, K
Josh Stephen - 1 for 3, BB, K, SB
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 4, R, 2 K, SB

Mauricio Llovera has been outstanding for the most part this season, sporting a 2.51 ERA with 17 strikeouts in 14.1 innings. The walks aren’t great (12 so far), but the results are there. Garrett Cleavinger makes his 2019 debut. Some may remember him as one of the pieces that came back in the Jeremy Hellickson trade. He’s another reliever with command issues and wasn’t healthy for the majority of last season. Darick Hall was the star of the show last night, hitting his 3rd HR of the season, a three-run blast in the 6th inning. One hopes that Adam Haseley will start seeing/hitting the ball better. He now has back-to-back games with a hit and two walks.

Tampa 6, Clearwater 3

Alejandro Requena - 5 IP, 11 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 3 K, WP, 7 GB, 3 FB
Seth McGarry - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Dalton Guthrie - 1 for 5, R (fielding error)
Jhailyn Ortiz - 1 for 4, R, K (outfield assist, 3B)
Jake Scheiner - 1 for 3, R, 2 BB, 2 K
Simon Muzziotti - 0 for 3, RBI, 2 BB
Rodolfo Duran - 1 for 3, 2 RBI, BB, K
Matt Vierling - 0 for 4, BB, 3 K, CS (outfield assist, 2B)
Colby Fitch - 0 for 2, 2 BB
Jose Gomez - 2 for 4, K, CS
Daniel Brito - 1 for 3, BB, K

Alejandro Requena had been looking really good up until this start. The 11 hits were the most he’s given up in a game since 2016, when he was in the Rockies organization. Seth McGarry (the Joaquin Benoit trade) has yet to walk a batter this season after giving out 41 of them in 67.2 innings last season in Reading. The Thresher offense failed to get an extra base hit and were 1 for 10 with RISP, leaving 12 on base.

Lakewood 3, Hickory 1

Colton Eastman - 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 7 K, HR, 2 GB, 1 FB
Ethan Lindow - 3.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 GB, 2 FB
Luis Garcia - 1 for 4, HR, BB, K
Alec Bohm - 3 for 4, R, 2 2B, BB, K
Abraham Gutierrez - 1 for 5, K
Ben Pelletier - 1 for 5, 2B, 2 K
Carlos De La Cruz - 0 for 4, 3 K
Yerwin Trejo - 1 for 4, R, 2 K, 2 SB
Jake Holmes - 1 for 2, BB, SB
Jonathan Guzman - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, SB

Colton Eastman breaks out his best performance of the season and his first win. He threw 48 of his 66 pitches for strikes. The 66 pitches was his highest of the season in five starts. Ethan Lindow was equally as good as the piggyback starter and now has 23 strikeouts to 5 walks in 19.2 innings. Luis Garcia led off the game with his first homer of the season. Alec Bohm meanwhile just keeps crushing the ball. His eight doubles this season are just one off the league-lead and he is currently slashing .366/.447/.563 in 71 at-bats. Something is telling me he won’t be long for the South Atlantic league.
