Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Sunday, August 25: Tim Crabbe, Louisville . . . 7.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K. Well, there were four pretty comparable pitching performances on the day, but Crabbe gets the nod for circumstance. It was his Triple-A debut, and he pitched effectively into the eighth.
Also notable . . .
Franderlyn Romero (AZL): 5.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K. Winning numbers, no doubt, so we'll at least credit him with the best relief effort of the day. Romero is a 20-year-old Venezuelan serving his fourth year in the organization, first in the States.
Nick Travieso: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K. I wish he'd get to hit now and then. He's alleged to be good at it. At any rate, he seems to have done a nice job of appeasing the skeptics concerning his first-round worthiness.
Jon Moscot: 6 IP, 8 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K. Speaking of pitchers who can hit . . . he's 3-6 on the year, with two doubles and a triple.
Beau Amaral: 3-5, 3B, R, 2 SB (35). And speaking of triples . . . he has one in three straight games.
Seth Mejias-Brean: 2-5, 2B, R.
Daniel Pigott: 2-5, 2 R.
Joe Hudson: 2 RBI, one of which proved to be the game-winner in the 11th.
Jesus Adames: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, Sv (1).
Devin Lohman: 2-3.
Yorman Rodriguez: 2-4.
Lee Hyde: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K. The lefthander still hasn't given up a run since May 19. That's 37 games.
Michael Lorenzen: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.
Mike Hessman: 2-4, 2B.
Jason Donald: 1-3, 2B.
Carlos Sanchez: 3-4, R.
Adam Matthews: 2-4, 2 2B, R, RBI.
Junior Arias: 2-5, RBI.
Juan Silva: 1-3, 2 BB, RBI.
Julio Morillo: 2-3, BB, R.
Kyle McMyne: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K.
Nick Routt: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K.
Cory Thompson: 2-4, 2B, 2 R.
Shedric Long: 1-3, HR #1, 3 RBI. This kid could be interesting. Drafted in the 12th round out of Jacksonville, Alabama, he just turned 18 a few days ago. He's a left-handed-hitting catcher.
Argenis Aldazoro: 1-2, R, RBI.
