    Would love to get a scouting report on what Rainey is throwing.

    Re: 2017 Minor-League Player of the Day

    MiLPOD April 20th

    All hitters selected tonight.

    Player of the Day - JUAN PEREZ SS Louisville. Slick fielder runs out an inside the parker, adds another over the fencer, singles for good measure, plus he's hitting .350 in the early going.

    There was some competition with the sticks
    Honorable Mention - ARISTIDES AQUINO - homered and tripled
    Honorable Mention - ANGELO GUMBS - homered, tripled and singled
    Honorable Mention - GAVIN LAVALLEY - homered (league leading 5th) doubled and walked
    ****

    Louisville goes to 6-8 with a 9-1 laugher over Triple Name

    Juan Perez - The unsung SS goes 3 for 5 with 2 homers(4), 2 runs and 2 RBI. His first was an inside the park shot but no one was on so it was just Juan run....and he didn't stop until he was back in the dugout. Juan is hitting .350 but he doesn't lead the team (Elizalde .377)

    Sebastian Elizalde - The pride of Guaymas went 0 for 3 but drew 2 walks, scored and got an RBI. And with the 0 fer he "falls" to just .377

    Seth Mejias-Brean - Big Hyphen had a 2 for 5 night with a double and a run rounding his average to .333

    Jesse Winker - 1 for 2 night with a walk, a SF, his 4th double and an RBI. He's from Olympia High in Orlando FL so you might call him Mr. Olympia.....but maybe not - his OBP is still higher than his SP

    Brandon Dixon - Brandon finally made some noise going 2 for 4 with a solo homer(2), 2 runs scored. Still mired at .214 could it be a breakout game?

    Pitching

    Nick Routt - Righty started and went 4, 4 hits, 1 run, 1 K. Building that bullpen arm up for Price's multi inning strategy

    Evan Mitchell - went 3 relieving Routt, 3 hits, 3 Ks, zip on the scoreboard, got the win. Have to believe Mitchell appears in the Nati sometime this year

    Luetge and Chacin to close it out, scoreless inning each
    ****

    Pensacola wins 8-5 and goes to 11-3. They might be pretty good...

    Blake Trahan - the little SS that could goes 1 for 4 with a walk, Sb(2), double and RBI

    Devin Mesoraco - Right now he couldn't hit a weather balloon with a pine plank. 0 for 4 drops him to .125. Defensively he did throw out a wannabe base thief

    Gabby Guerrero - Vlad's cousin, a FA from Arizona doubled(4) & scored in 4 trips. He's hitting .368. He's nearly at .900 OPS wise. If he's just filler for the OF he's really really good filler. No foam here just goose down...just 2 Vottos in 55 PAs....who needs a stinkin walk?

    Aristides Aquino - The Punisher Awakens!! Homer(1) and triple, 2 runs, 2 RBI...be afraid SL be very afraid...

    Angelo Gumbs - Put some teeth in his bite tonight, 3 for 4, double, homer(1), 2 runs, 2 RBI and hitting .364. Playing 1B but he can play about anywhere but C and CF. 24 y/o 2nd round NYY pick, he has a pedigree and just might end up a decent utility guy

    Brian O'Gritty - 2 for 3 with a walk, a triple, 2 runs and an RBI. Hitting .323, getting er done. Might end up surpassing some of the toolsy flashier guys before its all said and done

    Pitching

    Deck McGuire - 6 innings 6 hits/2 walks, 4 ER and a HR allowed. Did fan 7. Deckster fire tonight.

    Ehret was wild for 2 innings, walking 3, fanning 3, 1 hit, 1 run teasing the shrimp that they might get back in it then Tapia boiled them perfectly with 2 Ks in a scoreless 9th
    ****

    Daytona squeaked out a 10 inning 5-4 win to climb to 7-8

    Shed Long - first homer of the year in a 3 for 5 night with a run and 2 RBI for Toolshed. Hasn't made a lot of noise yet but he's still hitting .260

    Nick Senzel - The Sizzler went 2 for 5 with 2 doubles(5) and a run. Sitting right there with Long at .262

    Gavin LaValley - How green is that Valley? Try his 5th homer of the year plus a double and walk. Hitting a muscular .288/.323/.576/.899, he's walked just 3 times but has struck out just 10 times in 62 PAs. 22 y/o. Sparks and Jagielo better not get too comfortable at Pensacola. Nick and Gavin are coming for you....

    AlfRod - Continues to hit the ball, er spray the ball, 3 singles raises him to .286. The problem is his SP is just .304. OBP is .333. Yet he's fanned just 13 times in 69 PAs. There is something here even if it is Peraza with a better glove.

    Chad Tromp - Chadwick pinged a pair of singleberries. Still south of the Mendoza at .188

    Pitching

    Vlad Gutierrez - Best performance yet - 5 innings, 5 hits, 1 R, no walks with 7Ks. First glimmer of gold in this Gutierrez

    Lugo, Martinez, Oreweiler and Rainey came on and all got hit, got in trouble and Rainey fanned no one, gave up his first run and was charged with the blown save. Sarkis Ohanian of the 21.60 ERA won it with a perfect 10th inning, fanning 2. Sarkis is pretty good, though, expect that ERA to start falling like a rock in water.
    ****
    Dayton loses 8-3 to fall to a 9-5 record but still 1st

    Jose Siri - The toolshed from Sabana Grande de Boya (what a cool sounding place to be from) whacks 2 triples in 5 trips and scores 2 runs. He's just at .227 but he's improved his discipline this year. 3 walks and 10 Ks in 45 PAs. Turns 22 in July so he's still on target level wise. He also made his 2nd error of the year.

    Michael Beltre - 1 for 3 with a walk and a double his average now at .325. 7 walks and 13 Ks in 47 PAs. Also turns 22 in July. OPS is almost at the .900 mark. All the tools.

    TJ Friedl - Fleet Friedl goes 2 for 4 to round his average to .333. All the tools as well though his lean to the speed side. Why do I think Ryan Freel with a better hit tool, more speed and more power? Freel to the nth power = Friedl

    Avain Rachal - tempted to label him an organization guy. Homered (1) in 4 trips. OK, not tempted, I am.

    Cassidy Brown - whither the bat Cass? 1 for 4 night raises his average to .125. On the cold scale he comes before Freon...

    Pitching
    Ryan Olson - It was nice while it lasted but he came up dud tonight. 7 runs 6 earned and 8 hits in 2.2 innings. Get em next time Jimmy Olson...you played superman this time it was just the sidekick boy reporter. Even with this horrific game his ERA is just 2.89

    Jesse Stallings got nicked for a run in 2.1 innings then Riehl and Benanati pitched the last three frames scoreless.
    ****

    Better night for hitters than pitchers. Timing starting to catch up? System now stands at 33-24 thanks to Pensacola and Dayton. Imagine how good Pensacola's gonna be when LaValley and Senzel replace Jagielo and Sparks.

    99% of all numbers only tell 33% of the story so when looking at the numbers remember that numbers is plural...

    Re: 2017 Minor-League Player of the Day

    Games of Friday, April 21

    Austin Ross, Pensacola: 7 innings, 3 hits, 3 walks, 7 strikeouts, 0 runs. Joining Tyler Mahle and Ryan Olson, Ross becomes a two-time MiLPOD this year. Interestingly the Brewers have given Ross 5 starts in the Southern League back in 2014 and the results were fairly decent, but he still got moved to the bullpen the next year. Through 3 starts in 2017 the veteran hurler holds a 0.86 ERA.


    In other action, with rain allowing Louisville only a few innings of action:


    Juan Perez, Louisville: 1-2, RBI

    Tyler Goeddel, Louisville: 1-1, RBI

    Sal Romano, Louisville: 4 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 1 earned run. Back to the grind.


    Devin Mesoraco, Pensacola: 2-4. Might have heard of this guy.

    Taylor Sparks, Pensacola: 1-3, 2B.

    Ariel Hernandez, Pensacola: 1 inning, 0 hits, walks, or runs, 2 strikeouts. Any outing for Hernandez without any walks is worth noting.

    Jimmy Herget, Pensacola: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 0 runs. Save #7.


    Blake Butler, Daytona: 3-4, 2B, RBI.

    Shed Long, Daytona: 1-3, BB

    Gavin LaValley, Daytona: 1-3, 2B, RBI.

    Narciso Crook, Daytona: 2-4, HR, 2 RBI. 2 home runs for Crook in his last 3 games.

    Reydel Medina, Daytona: 3-4, 2B, stolen base

    Mitch Piatnik, Daytona: 2-3, RBI

    Jake Paulson, Daytona: 3 innings, 0 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, 0 runs. Paulson pitched a bit better than starter Jesus Reyes in this one.


    Tyler Stephenson, Dayton: 1-4

    T.J. Friedl, Dayton: 1-4, 2B

    Brantley Bell, Dayton: 2-3, stolen base

    Luis Gonzalez, Dayton: 2-3

    Andrew Jordan, Dayton: 7 innings, 8 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, 4 runs, 3 earned runs. After only going 3 innings in his last start the 19-year-old from North Carolina bounced back with a strong start in an ultimately losing effort.

    Ryan Hendrix, Dayton: 1 inning, 0 hits, walks, or runs, 3 strikeouts.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Re: 2017 Minor-League Player of the Day

    Games of Saturday April 22

    Your Sunday MILPoD scripture reading...
    "Teamwork is to baseball just as it is to any other enterprise. Individualism is all right in its place, but too much of it will kill any organization in the world. The result is what counts, and the only way to get it is by teamwork." -- John J. McGraw, My Thirty Years in Baseball (1923)

    Tyler Mahle, Blue Wahoo: PERFECT GAME. 9 IP, zeros, 8 Ks. Teamwork schmeamwork. Mahle's done this kind of thing before, just not quite so perfectly (he allowed a single controversial baserunner in a no-hitter in the Cal League last year). This time, he only needed 88 pitches, folks, and 68 were strikes -- that's a 77% strike rate, and that's the kind of efficiency that'll get you to Cincinnati, probably sooner than later. 7/7 GB/FB ratio also shows some nice balance. Mahle's 4-0 in 4 starts with an ERA of 0.68. He's allowed 7 hits in 26.2 innings, has a 27/5 K/BB, and opposing hitters have a .082 average against him. With 150 IP in each of the last two seasons, he's laying down a foundation of durability. He'll be 22 all year long.

    Honorable mention
    Joe Hudson, Blue Wahoo: Caught the no-no and knocked in the game only run with a 2nd inning single. Tne Notre Damer has the defensive chops to maybe be big league backup someday.

    On a night the rest of the system was merely human...

    (Louisville finished up Friday's game first. Both games included here...)

    Juan Perez, Bat: 3-9, RBI. Now hitting .347 atop the Louisville lineup.

    Sebastian Elizalde, Bat: 1-4, 4 BB. At .368 with a .448 OBP

    SMB, Bat: 2-6, BB

    Kyle McMyne, Bat: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. Now unscored on through 12.2 IP and all 7 of his AAA outings.


    Aristides Aquino, Blue Wahoo: 1-3, 2B. Scored the game's lone run.


    Blake Butler, Daytona: 1-2, 2 BB, 2 R HR (2). 15th rounder out of the College of Charleston has come to life in the leadoff spot. It was said he had a fantastic spring training -- maybe that's starting to show.

    Reydel Medina, Tortuga: 2-4, 2B (4), RBI

    Shed Long, Tortuga: 1-4, HR (2), 2 RBI. Power tool Shed.

    Ty Boyles, Tortuga: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 8 K, win. The sturdy lefty is off to a good start in his first high A season. A little wild, but opponents are hitting less than .150 against him. Let's remember TyBoy is still only 21.

    Orewiler, Ohanian, Rainey: 4 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K. Rainey with his first save.


    Jose Siri, Dragon: 1-3, 2B

    Taylor Trammell, Dragon: 1-4, RBI, 2 SB (5)

    Tyler Stephenson, 0-2, 2 BB, caught a base stealer. Has been consistent out of the gate.

    James Vasquez, Dragon: 1-3, 2 R, BB; HR (1), 2 RBI

    Michael Beltre, Dragon: 2-4, HR (2), 2 RBI. So far so good in the 21 y-o switch hitter's first full season campaign (911 OPS).

    Tony Santillan, Dragon: 4 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K. Erratic, but disaster-averting.

    Aaron Fossas, Dragon: 4 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, K. Son of Tony is pulling his weight nicely as an undrafted free agent. Unscored on in 12 IP.

    Re: 2017 Minor-League Player of the Day

    Games of Sunday, April 23

    Scott Moss, Dayton . . . 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 11 K. The long lefthander has been striking 'em out at a brisk clip in his first full season, 33 in 20 innings. Before Sunday, his peripherals had been exceeding his bottom line. This, though, would have been a winning effort had not his bullpen failed him unanimously. At any rate, it appears that the injuries that beset him at Florida have receded into the past, and the Reds have themselves another interesting pitching prospect.

    Honorable mention: Blake Butler, Daytona . . . 4-5, 2 R. The second run tied the game so that Shed Long could follow right behind with the winner. After going hitless for ten days, the tall infielder is 8 for 11 over the last three.

    Honorable mention: Jesse Winker, Louisville . . . 4-5, RBI. Fourth single tied the game in the bottom of the 12th, enabling a victory in the 13th (secured against Durham's backup catcher).

    Also notable on a day when there was not a single perfect game in the entire organization . . .

    Asher Wojciechowski, Louisville: 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 6 K. The just-acquired righthander, a first-round draft choice of the Blue Jays in 2010 and briefly an Astro two years ago, made an immediate impact--especially on the clubhouse guy who had to fit the name on the shirt.

    Luis Castillo, Pensacola: 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 4 K. Wasn't his fault that the Wahoos' 8-game winning streak came to a halt.

    Shed Long, Daytona: 2-5, HR (3), 2 R, 3 RBI. The homer was ToolShed's third in four games, and it was a 9th-inning walkoff that wiped out a 1-run deficit.

    Jose Siri, Dayton: 1-3, 2B, R, SB (10). Leads the loop in swipes.

    Angelo Gumbs, Pensacola: 2-5, 2B, RBI. A .370 start.

    Mes, Pensacola: 1-4, 2B, BB, RBI.

    Josh VanMeter, Pensacola: 1-3, 2 BB, R, RBI, SB (2).

    Alex Blandino, Pensacola: 1-2, 2 BB.

    John Sansone, Dayton: 2-4, 2 2B, 3 RBI.

    Tyler Stephenson, Dayton: 2-4, 2B, R, RBI.

    T.J. Friedl, Dayton: 1-3, 2B, 3 R, 2 HBP, SB (4). Hit or get hit. Doesn't matter to Tough Joe Friedl.

    Gavin LaValley, Daytona: 2-4, 2B, RBI. Even .300.

    Reydel Medina, Daytona: HR (1).

    Nick Senzel, Daytona: 1-3, BB, R.

    Wendolyn Bautista, Daytona: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 5 K.

    Juan Martinez, Daytona: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Never realized he was left-handed.

    Juan Perez, Louisville: 2-5, 2B, BB. Rocking an OPS of 1.065.

    Dilson Herrera, Louisville: HR (2), 2 RBI.

    Rob Brantly, Louisville: 2-5, 2B.

    Evan Mitchell, Louisville: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K.

    Louis Coleman, Louisville: 2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 5 K.

    Lucas Luetge, Louisville: 4 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 3 K.

    Nick Routt, Louisville: 1 IP, zeros, 2 K, W.

    Re: 2017 Minor-League Player of the Day

    Games of Monday, April 24.....

    Keury Mella, Pensacola...7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, GS 76. - Mella has exhibited excellent control all season long (3 BB in 19.2 IP), and it is starting to pay dividends. His last 2 starts have seen him give up just 1 earned run in 13 innings. He has fanned 17 hitters during this stretch. Mella is unscored upon in his last 11 innings. Keury has always had the raw stuff, is he starting to harness it? Hopefully, yes.

    Honorable Mention: Jose Siri, Dayton...Siri oozes athletic ability, but will he ever refine it? Games such as last night - 3 for 6, 2 SGL, HR (1), 2 RS, 2 RBI - seem to indicate that he just might be. Siri currently leads the ML in steals with 10. Over his last 6 games, Jose is batting .333 (8 for 24).

    Honorable Mention: Blake Trahan, Pensacola...Trahan is heating up with the weather, hitting .324 over his last 9 contests. For Monday, the line looked like this: 3 for 6, 3 SGL, RS, SAC. A couple of hiccups along the way though, with a caught stealing (2) and an error (3).

    Domingo Tapia, Pensacola...2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K. The Blue Fish relievers were outstanding, until the very end.

    Alex Powers, Pensacola...3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K. Powers has not seen a lot of action out of the pen for the 'Hoos. Outings like this will certainly change that around.

    Brennan Bernardino, Pensacola...3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K. Another infrequently-used Pensacola reliever, Bernardino stepped up last night. He has allowed just one walk so far in 2017, while providing 7.2 innings of relief.

    Josh VanMeter, Pensacola...2 for 6, 2 SGL, BB, Outfield Assist (2nd base). Normally a second sacker, VanMeter played left field, and acquitted himself well, gunning down a runner trying to stretch a single into a double.

    Alex Blandino, Pensacola...0-4, 3 BB. Showed great patience, leading off 2 of the extra innings with walks. His TOOTBLAN, however, possibly prevented the Blue Fish from hanging up a crooked number late in the affair.

    Joel Kuhnel, Dayton...1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K. A zero out of the pen is a zero. And, you can quote me on that.

    Patrick Riehl, Dayton...2.2 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 4 K. Lifted with the game one out from reaching a successful conclusion for the Dragons. Why? I do not know. One baserunner (no hits), over 2.2 innings and they take remove him with one out to go. It backfired.

    Andy Cox, Dayton...1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K. In contrast to Riehl, Cox puts 4 men on base in 1 innings of work. And gets the win. Life ain't fair. But, quoting myself, a zero out of the pen is a zero.

    Jesse Stallings...1/3 IP, Zeros. Stallings induces a pop up, and gets a save (1).

    T.J. Friedl Jr., Dayton...1 for 5, SGL, BB, SB (5), 2 RS. Average has been above .300 all year long, but it's getting close (.302).

    Taylor Trammell, Dayton...1 for 5, DBL, BB, SB (6), RS, RBI. His late-game double pushed across the eventual winning run.

    Avain Rachal, Dayton...2 for 6, 2 SGL, RS. Incredibly insightful comment missing.

    John Sansone, Dayton...1 for 3, DBL, 2 BB, HBP, RS, RBI. Reached base 4 times last night. Has driven home a teammate in 7 games in a row. Hangs a poster of Marty Brennaman in his locker.

    Cassidy Brown, Dayton...1 for 4, DBL, BB, SF, RS, 3 RBI. Came dangerously close to exiting the interstate in the wrong direction before doubling in a pair of, what would turn out to be, much-needed insurance runs. Caught a runner napping at first and picked him off.

    Brantley Bell, Dayton...2-5, SGL, DBL, BB, SB (9). 4 multi-hit games in his last 7 has nearly doubled his batting average (.133 to .264). Second in the ML in steals with 9. Stellar .371 OBP.

    Re: 2017 Minor-League Player of the Day

    Games of Tuesday, April 25


    Jackson Stephens, Louisville: 6 innings, 7 hits, 3 walks, 3 strikeouts, 0 runs. It hasn't been the smoothest of transitions to Triple A so far for Stephens, but it's worth remembering the Alabama native doesn't turn 23 until next month, making him pretty young for the highest level below the majors.

    Honorable mention: Aaron Fossas, Dayton: 3 innings, 2 hits, 0 walks, 2 strikeouts, 0 runs. Fossas has yet to allow a run in 15 innings this season for the Dragons.



    In other action, on a very quiet night after a few marathon games the night before:

    Hernan Iribarren, Louisville: 1-4. Rest easy Hernan-heads, your favorite Bat is still around.

    Tyler Goeddel, Louisville: 2-4, 2B, RBI, stolen base

    Chad Wallach, Louisville: 2-4, 2 RBI

    Kevin Shackelford, Louisville: 1.2 innings, 1 hit, 0 walks, 3 strikeouts, 0 runs



    Devin Mesoraco, Pensacola: 1-3, BB. Wonder if Devin might have a chip on his shoulder, he seems to be hitting more after the Reds didn't activate him for the Cubs series.

    Eric Jagielo, Pensacola: 2-3, BB. Remember when Jags hit that HR to start the season? He's mostly gone back to being his 2016 self.

    Gabriel Guerrero, Pensacola: 1-4, 3B

    Deck McGuire, Pensacola: 6 innings, 4 hits, 3 walks, 4 strikeouts, 3 earned runs.

    Jake Ehret, Pensacola: 2 innings, 1 hit, 0 walks, 2 strikeouts, 0 runs.



    Blake Butler, Daytona: 1-4, RBI

    Nick Senzel, Daytona: 1-4, HR, RBI. First HR of the year for our Crown Jewel, hopefully a sign of things to come.

    Alfredo Rodriguez, Daytona: 1-4

    Chris Okey, Daytona: 3-4, 2B. A sorely needed game for the former Clemson catcher who has been ice cold at the plate in April.

    Jonathon Crawford, Daytona: 5 innings, 7 hits, 1 walk, 0 strikeouts, 3 runs, 2 earned runs. Crawford's first two starts went reasonably well but in these last two he's pitched 10 innings of 6 walk, 1 strikeout ball. Not gonna work.

    Robert Stock, Daytona: 1.1 innings, 2 hits, 0 walks, 2 strikeouts, 0 runs. Tonight on Unsolved Mysteries, can the Reds coax an Ariel Hernandez like resurgence from this former 2nd rounder turned indy ball dweller turned Reds project?



    Jose Siri, Dayton: 1-3, BB

    Taylor Trammell, Dayton: 1-3, BB

    Tyler Stephenson, Dayton: 2-4, RBI. The 2015 first-rounder continues to have a hot April.

    Brantley Bell, Dayton: 1-4

    Michael Beltre, Dayton: 1-4

    Ryan Olson, Dayton: 5 innings, 10 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, 6 runs, 5 earned runs. The two time MiLPoD is quickly finding out pro baseball isn't as easy as he made it look in his first two starts for Dayton.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Re: 2017 Minor-League Player of the Day

    Games of Wednesday, April 26

    Gavin LaValley, Daytona . . . 3-5, 2B, HR (6), 2 RBI. The question has now become, how green will LaValley be if he keeps this up? His 10th-inning home run moved him within one of the league leader, kept him over .300, and produced the winning runs for the Tortugas. The 22-year-old Oklahoman has been the top bat, by far, on a club that includes Nick Senzel and Shed Long.

    Honorable mention: Eric Jagielo, Pensacola . . . 4-5, 2 R. That's a month of singles for the big-swinging lefty.

    Honorable mention: Jose Lopez, Daytona: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 7 K. Maybe the quietest of the organization's solid pitching prospects. ERA sits at 2.05.

    Also notable on a night when Sal Romano, looking good, had to stop warming up for the sixth inning, threw his glove, and left the game with the trainer. . . .

    Sal Romano, Louisville: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K. Maybe reaching here, because we all love big Sal, but is it a good sign that he was actually able to throw his glove?

    Austin Ross, Pensacola: 6.1 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K, W (2-0). Ross, 28, pitched well last year--in relief--in the Pacific Coast League. As a starter for the Wahoos, he's been ace-like: a 0.99 ERA, with a 0.88 WHIP.

    Reydel Medina, Daytona: 2-4, 2B, 3B, R, RBI.

    Nick Senzel, Daytona: 2-5, 2B, 2 R. Two-out double set up LaValley's decisive HR.

    Chris Okey, Daytona: 1-3, BB, R, SB (1).

    Sarkis Ohanian, Daytona: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K. Back in stride after a rough 2017 debut.

    Robert Stock, Daytona: .2 IP, zeros, Sv (1). Reclamation project looking interesting.

    Juan Perez, Louisville: 2-4, 3B, RBI.

    Brandon Dixon, Louisville: 2-3, 2B.

    Dilson Herrera, Louisville: 2-4, 2B.

    Sebastian Elizalde, Louisville: 2-4.

    Tyler Stephenson, Dayton: 2-4, RBI. Powerful catcher batting .302.

    T.J. Friedl, Dayton: 1-4, 2B, R.

    Ryan Hendrix, Dayton: 2 IP, zeros, 3 K. Flashing 19 strikeouts in 10 innings.

    Geoff Broussard, Pensacola: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.

    Blake Trahan, Pensacola: 2-5, 2 RBI. Two-run, sixth-inning single was the difference in the game.

    Leon Landry, Pensacola: 3B, 2 RBI. Replaced Angelo Gumbs in third inning.

    Re: 2017 Minor-League Player of the Day

    MiLPOD April 27th

    TYLER MAHLE - hey he wins it again pretty convincingly. Game Score of 73, 6 scoreless innings, 7 Ks. Vasquez and Gutierrez made strong bids but just short of Tyler's overall performance.

    Honorable Mention - Vladimir Gutierrez. His last 2 starts are beginning to show why he was so coveted.

    Honorable Mention - Tony Santillan. 5 shutout 2 hit innings with a GS of 68 gets strong POD consideration unless you pitch the same day as Mahle and Gutierrez.

    Honorable Mention - James Vasquez. Big James makes the list with his 2 homer performance. The power is real he just doesn;t make contact enough to tap into it.
    ****

    Louisville goes to 8-12 getting beaten on 10-5

    Juan Perez SS - double, walk and run

    Dilson Herrerra 2B - pair of singles with a run and 2 ribbies

    Sebastian Elizalde DH - pair of singles with an RBI

    Tony Renda 3B - pair of singles, RBI, GIDP

    Pitching

    Lis Bonilla just didn't have much going on allowing 10 hits and 9 runs (5 earned thanks to 3 errors and a passed ball) in 4.2 innings

    Lutge, Brice and Coleman pitched the last 3.1 innings with 1 unearned run (Luetge)
    ****

    Pensacola falls short in a 9th inning rally and loses 4-3, now at 14-7

    Josh Van Meter 2B - pair of singles, 2 ribbies

    Aristides Aquino RF - doubled and walked

    Leon Landry LF - pair of singles, 2 runs

    Blandino (.184), Aquino(.181) O'Grady (.216) and Jagielo (.214) are all ice cold and Gabby Guerrero's average is plummeting, down to .286 from .350 a week ago

    Pitching

    Tyler Mahle - 6 innings, 4 hits/1 walk, 0 R, 7 Ks, GS 73 - after perfection it seems almost a letdown when he gives up any hits. Terrific game

    In relief Guillon gave up 3 runs and Tapia 1. Bernadino pitched a perfect 9th but too late.
    ****

    Daytona slammed out a 14-3 win to climb to 12-9, winners of 7 of their last 8

    Daniel Sweet DH - 3 singles, HBP, 3 runs, 2 SB
    , now at .317

    Shed Long 2B - 3 for 6, double, 2 runs, RBI, 2 SB

    Nick Senzel 3B - 3 singles and a run, a SB, inching his average up, .271

    Gavin LaValley 1B - 2 for 3, double, run and 3 RBI - at this moment he's the best hitter in the system

    Reydel Medina RF - 2 singles, a walk, a SB and a run scored

    Blake Butler LF/1B - 2 singles, a walk, 2 runs, 2 RBI

    Alfredo Rodriguez SS - 1 for 4 with 2 walks, a run and an RBI

    Narciso Crook CF - 3 for 3 and a walk, a homer (3), run and 4 RBI

    Pitching
    Vlad Gutierrez - 2nd strong start in a row, 5 shutout innings, 3 hits/no walks, 7 strikeouts, GS 71, 4.66 ERA but his xFIP is under 3

    All the scoring was off Juan Martinez in 3.2 innings of relief. Sandy Lugo got the last out of the game.
    ****
    Dayton wins 9-1 and goes to 12-9 on the season

    Taylor Trammell LF - single and walk, run scored, GIDP

    Tyler Stephenson C - doubled, singled, 2 runs, 2 RBI, now at .313

    James Vasquez 1B - homered twice (3) and walked, 3 runs, 3 RBI

    John Sansone 3B - tripled and walked, run and 3 RBI

    Michael Beltre RF - singled, walked and scored, GIDP

    Pitching
    Tony Santillan - 2 hits/2 walks, 6 strikeouts in 5 shutout innings, GS 68

    The 2 Jesse's finished the game (Stallings and Adams) allowing an unearned run. Adams fanned 4 in his 2 innings.
    ****

    Strong starting pitching from the 3 lower affiliates, and great hitting from Daytona and Dayton. Overall the system is 46-37 with the Bats the only team with a losing record.
    99% of all numbers only tell 33% of the story so when looking at the numbers remember that numbers is plural...
