Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Saturday, May 25: Junior Arias, Dayton. This one could have gone in any of several directions, but Arias has lately built up a critical mass of noise. Last night, he joined a couple rallies in Dayton's 5-1 victory: 3-4, 2 SB, 2 R, RBI. His stolen-base total is now at 23--only two behind Hamilton. Who knew? Any reports on how he's doing in his conversion to center field?
In a bad night for the system (Dayton was the only winner,), it was a pretty good night for starting pitchers. Also notable . . .
Robert Stephenson: 6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K. Stephenson's roll continues. His ERA is down to 3.74.
Michael Dennhardt: In only his second start of the season for Bakersfield, the 2011 draft choice (round 32) went 5 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K. His ERA stands at 2.81.
Daniel Renken: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K.
Jesse Winker: 2-2, 3B, 2 BB.
Mike Hessman: 2-4, HR #10.
Billy Hamilton: 3-5. Up to .250.
