Minor League Recaps: 7/12

Short recap tonight because I can.

Richmond 3, Charlotte 4

  • B. Jones 3-4 HR(3), 2 RBI

Brandon Jones must have heard me talking about him last night. Either way if he can be consistent in the Show like he has shown in the minors in the past, he IS our LF of the future. At least until you decide what to do with Gorkys and Schafer.

Mississippi @ Jacksonville - postponed due to rain

You know I actually look forward to reading about M-Braves games every night. Who would have thunk it two months ago.

Salem 9, Myrtle Beach 10 - Game 1

  • E. Campbell 2-5 2 HR(10), 3 RBI
  • T. Flowers 2-2 2B, HR(11), 3 RBI, 3 BB

It is a scary thought indeed when Tyler Flowers starts hitting for power at home. This is probably one of the best lines I have seen this season from any hitter. Also he now has a 66/67 K/BB ratio on the season. That is just awesome. Eric Campbell continues to have good everything but batting average.

Salem @ Myrtle Beach - Game 2 postponed due to rain

A lot of this going on.

Kannapolis 4, Rome 2

  • F. Freeman 2-3 2B, HR(14), 2 RBI, BB

You know I had forgotten but Freddie Freeman is in his 18 year old season as well. He is one of the best first base prospects in the minors at this point and has been better than Jason Heyward in the past month. Also I was looking at our community prospect list from last year and would like to point out that I was the only person here that ranked him in the top 25. Eat it :-)

Burlington 2, Danville 12

  • C. Shehan 4-5 2 2B
  • G. Rodriguez 2-2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB
  • J. Gilmore 3-5 2 2B, 2 RBI
  • L. V. Ware 2-3 2B, 3B, 4 RBI, BB

I think Chris Shehan heard my praise yesterday as well! Jon Gilmore continues to make a case for a repromotion and L. V. Ware's plethora of tools shows through for a game.

Yankees 8, Braves 3

9th rd pick Kyle Farrell got ripped in this game. Nothing else of notice really.
