Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 8/19

Alright I am finally back off of vacation. Lets get this thing going.

Gwinnett 2, Norfolk 5

  • G. Blanco 2-4
  • B. Conrad 2-4 K
  • B. Jones 1-4 2B

A rare loss for the Braves in August. Gwinnett is actually a .5 game back for the best record in the league right now and has all but locked up a playoff spot. I wonder who we will see get the call come September? If the G-Braves are in the playoffs we may not see a whole bunch of callups. And would that make Heyward more likely to get the call or would they put him in Gwinnett to get some playoff 'experience'? Questions that will be answered! In September.

Mobile 2, Mississippi 6

  • M. Young 2-2 RBI, 2 BB, 2 SB(33), CS(14)
  • J. Heyward 0-4 BB, K
  • C. Kimbrel 1IP 0H 0R 2BB 0K

Jason Heyward has found himself in probably the worst slump he has been in since signing his contract. Other than the homer he hit last night he has done very little over the last 10 games and only has 1 multi hit game in that time. In other news I love Matt Young and wish for him to get a real shot above Mississippi. I also don't know the last time that Craig Kimbrel didn't strike out at least 1 batter in an outing.

Myrtle Beach 0, Kinston 3

  • C. Johnson 1-2 BB, K
  • J. Thompson 6IP 9H 2R 1BB 5K

So very bad.

Charleston 0, Rome 2

  • S. Moody 1-2 K
  • M. Kennelly 1-3 RBI
  • D. Delgado 6.2IP 2H 0R 4BB 5K

A solid outing from Dimaster Delgado in this one. His walks were higher than I like but when you only give up 2 hits then it really doesn't matter a whole lot I guess. I am guessing that Randall Delgado was skipped this time through since his turn would have been yesterday, which was an off day.

Danville - Off

GCL Braves 2, GCL Yankees 0 - 7 Innings

  • D. Falcon 1-3 2B, K
  • J. Hanson 1-3 2B
  • C. Brewer 6IP 2H 0R 0BB 11K

Caleb Brewer put together one of the better pitching lines we have seen from any Braves hurler this season. He is 20 years old and is probably a little advanced for the level, but you still have to been impressed. He was drafted in 2007 and pitched in the GCL that season but did not pitch last year from what I guess whould be an injury (though I am not 100%), and is now back this season in the GCL. He did get a pretty large bonus for coming out of the 14th RD so he might be someone to keep an eye on.

GCL Yankees 6, GCL Braves 3 - 7 Innings

  • A. Odreman 1-3 HR(9)
  • J. Whitmer 1-3 2B

Game 2!
