Minor League Recaps: 7/10

Richmond 2, Charlotte 8

  • B. Jones 1-3 2B
  • C. Sammons 2-4 2B

I don't know, theres just not a whole lot here for me to talk about. I don't know what has happened to Brandon Jones. I mean the guy has talent but it just hasn't shown through at all this season. I think he has has some nagging injuries for most of the year and I'm pretty sure he has had nagging wrist injuries in the past. I mean his power is completely absent so far this year. I still have faith in him.

Mississippi 6, Jacksonville 4

  • M. Young 2-6 2 2B, 2 RBI
  • G. Creek 2-4 2B, 3 RBI, K
  • M. Hampton 5IP 6H 2R 0BB 4K

Well Mike Hampton continues his attempt to find a reason not to pitch for the Braves ever again. I will have a poll on this at the end of the article tonight for all to vote on. Matt Young has been strangely productive in last 5-6 games. A guy I want to throw out there that I haven't talked about in a while is Carlos Sencion. He has been in the role of spot starter/set-up man for the Mississippi team and has done an excellent job pitching 39 innings with 34 Ks and a 3.05 ERA while at AA. I think he will be useful in the near future and I would have him in my top 25 right now.

Salem @ Myrtle Beach - Rainout


Greensboro 1, Rome 2 (Final 14 innings)

  • A. Coe 3-3 2B, BB
  • E. Osuna 7IP 3H 1R 2BB 7K

Freddie Freeman walked with the bases loaded in the 14th to get the walk off win. Edgar Osuna pitched wonderfully in his 7 innings and Braves pitchers have struck out 18 in 13 innings so far. I used to like Adam Coe but I don't think his brief flash of the bat last year is going to produce anything, granted he is just 20 so I guess I can have a little more patience with him.

Bluefield 10, Danville 6 (Game 1)

  • J. Gilmore 2-3 2B
  • M. Kennelly 2-3 2B
  • J. Sucre 1-3 HR(3), 2 RBI
  • K. Miles 2-3 2 2B, RBI

Jon Gilmore has really been pouring it on in his last 10 games. He had a 9 game hitting streak coming into this game and has hit .400 over that span. Not bad. Should we give him another shot at Rome? I mean I know he struggled there just a month ago but maybe he had a serious flaw in his swing. I dunno.

Bluefield 0, Danville 3

  • C. Shehan 2-3 2B, RBI
  • L. V. Ware 2-2
  • C. Hodges 7IP 2H 0R 0BB 8K

Casey Hodges has allowed just 2 earned runs and 4 walks in his first 30 pro innings. I don't know what the guy has but I think he might be a little advanced for the Appy league. We need more good RHP in the prospect world though. Chris Shehan is my sleeper prospect from this years draft class. Let him get adjusted to wood bats and watch out. It won't be till next season but I think he is going to hit.

Braves 5, Yankees 6

  • R. Brooks 3-4 BB
  • D. Matra 2-5 2B, 2 RBI, K

Get on the Daniel Matra bandwagon right now! .377/.393/.509
