    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day

    This appears to be a complete toss up between Jesse Winker who was 1-2 with a HR, 2BB, 2 runs, and 2RBI and Donald Lutz who was 2-4 with a walk, HR, and 2RBI. Co-MiLPotD maybe?

    Also thought it was worth noting that Saturday's winner, Devin Lohman, already committed his sixth error of the year on Sunday. The key to making it as a big league bench player now a days is to be at a bare minimum average at a couple defensive positions.

    I say no. Make the call! (Then people can debate.)

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day

    Sunday, 4-21: Donald Lutz, Pensacola. Credentials are compromised a bit when the affiliates go winless on the day. Lutz, 2-4 with a HR, gets the nod because the homer was his fifth of the season, tying him for the Southern League lead (with 13 fewer at-bats than the other guy).

    Also lightly notable . . .

    Chris Berset, Bakersfield: 2-5, HR, 2B
    Jesse Winker, Dayton: 1-2, HR, 2 BB
    Michael Gilmartin, Bakersfield: 2-4, two 2B
    Yohan Pino, Louisville: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3K
    Mark Prior, Louisville: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day

    Candidates as I see it.

    Louisville - Greg Reynolds - 6.1 IP 6H 2 ER 0 BB 2K. He also broke up the perfecto with a single with two outs in the sixth. He scored the first run of the game for the Bats. And later added a walk. Had only allowed one earned run and was in line for the win until Bullpenis Collapsis.

    Pensacola - Another starting pitcher shone last night. Josh Smith was in beast mode.
    7 IP 2 H 0 ER O BB 7 K. It has been a Jekyll and Hyde season for Smith so far. First two starts - 11 ER in 5.2 IP. Last two starts 2 ER in 12.0 IP. He has a consecutive scoreless streak of 11 innings now.

    Dayton - Jesse Winker reached base on all four plate appearances last night. He had two singles, a double and a walk, which helped produce one run scored and two driven in. He has been on fire lately. He currently has a season-high, six-game hitting streak. In his last four contests, he has gone 9-13 along with 3 walks. He has scored five times and driven home five runners during that four-game stretch. The precocious 19-year old, on the season, is now OPSing a solid .813.

    Tough call, IMO.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day

    Monday, 4-22: Josh Smith, Pensacola . . . 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K. Smith had been disappointing so far this season, but last night combined with Chris Manno and Curtis Partch for a nifty 3-hit shutout.

    Also notable . . .

    If we had a Player of the Week, I suspect (without studying it) it would be Jesse Winker, whose tear continued last night for Dayton: 3-3, 2B, BB. After a slow start, he's looking very much like the real deal. Even hitting cleanup for the Dragons as a 19-year-old playing with a bunch of college veterans.

    Ray Chang, Pensacola: 2-4, 2 doubles.

    Wes Mugarian, Dayton: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 3 K.

    Greg Reynolds, Louisville: 6.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day

    Smith wins it, I agree, but I otherwise go Winker over Reynolds. I think for this meaningless award I am biased in favor if players who are actually prospects still. Funny though, I don't think Smith even made our top 50 this year.

    Tuesday, 4-23: Tim Crabbe, Pensacola. Soft-Shell wins it for the second time in his last three starts . . . 7 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K. If he can blend that kind of consistency with his good stuff, Crabbe walks right up the ladder.

    Also notable:

    Pedro Villarreal, Louisville, had a nearly identical line as Crabbe, with one less inning: 6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K. Both starters left with their team tied 1-1. Louisville won in the ninth, Pensacola lost in twelve.

    Felix Perez, Louisville: 1-2, 2B, BB. The Cuban outfielder is building a very nice body of work.

    Jumbo Diaz, Louisville: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Diaz's late relief enabled the Bats' bottom-of-ninth rally, keyed by Konrad Schmidt's game-winning single.

    Henry Rodriguez, Louisville: Rodriguez went 3-4 and started the Bats' winning rally.

    Sean Lucas, Dayton: The lefty earned a tough 4-out save: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day

    Wednesday, 4-24:Marquez Smith, Bakersfield.

    Chad "Sharky" Rogers and Drew Cisco both had solid starts on Wednesday but I am going with the new kid on the block. Recently picked up after being let go by the Texas Rangers, in just his second start, Smith rapped out three hits, including a triple and a home run. Included among them was a triple and a home run. He scored twice and drove in a pair.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day

    Thursday, 4-24:Beau Amaral, Dayton.

    Three solid starting pitching performances. Reineke, Dennick and Romano.
    Hitting stars included: LaMarre, Silverio, Amaral, Vincej, Arias and Ramirez.

    I believe it comes down to either:

    Chad Reineke - 7IP 5H 0R 0ER 2BB 4K OHR. Nothing wrong with picking Reineke.
    Beau Amaral - 3 for 5, HR, 3RS, 2RBI. But I gave the nod to Amaral. Being involved in the scoring of four runs in a game stands out to me.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day

    I noticed no updates last night (4-26-13) and it was a bad day for the entire organization. Pickings are slim. Here are my candidates:

    David Vidal - 2 for 2 with 2 BB.
    Jesse Winker - 1 for 2 with 2 BB.
    Armando Galarraga - 5 IP, 3H, 1BB, 5K, 0 Runs.

    My pick? David Vidal.

    Hoping for a better day on Saturday.

    Thanks, mth. Let's call that official, sad as it is.

    I busted my hip and haven't made it home yet from surgery, and texasdave works extra-long hours on the weekends, so the stepping up is appreciated.

    Friday, 4-26:David Vidal, Pensacola.

    I just got home and had a chance to look at Friday's games. Slim pickings, indeed.
