Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap 4/9: Folty Rehabs, Florida Slugs a Pair of Homers, Rome is Rained Out

A rehabbing Foltynewicz is forced out early because of a rain delay but hopes to return on Sunday

MLB: Miami Marlins at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Durham Bulls 3, Gwinnett Stripers 0

Box Score

  • Mike Foltynewicz, SP: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5K
  • Dan Winkler, RP: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
  • Travis Demeritte, RF: 1-for-4, .333/.400/.556
  • Austin Riley, 3B: 1-for-4, .273/.360/.591

Mike Foltynewicz made another rehab start and lasted 3.2 innings while striking out five and walking one. Mike was on a pitch count but came out early after going through a lengthy rail delay. Mike could conceivably make his next start in Atlanta on Sunday. After being forced out, Andres Santiago put together a valiant effort to keep Gwinnett in it - delivering 3.1 innings of one run baseball, however the Braves offense fell flat and Foltynewicz took the loss.

Travis Demeritte continued his good play to start the year as the right fielder went 1-for-4 and is now hitting .333/.400/.556. We are currently living in the best timeline regarding Travis. Austin Riley also went 1-for-4 with a single and while he’s hitting just .273, he has a .951 OPS to start the season. Adam Duvall, and Ryan LaMarre were the only two other Gwinnett hitters to register a hit as the offense was silenced to just 4 hits while being shutout.

Mississippi Braves - Off Day

Jupiter Hammerheads 5, Florida Fire Frogs 2

Box Score

  • William Contreras, C: 2-for-3, HR, RBI, R, BB, .294/.400/.471
  • Jefrey Ramos, LF: 2-for-4, HR, RBI, R, .320/.320/.480
  • Ynoa Huascar, SP: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K

Huascar continued his strong start to the season while striking out four over 3.1 innings in the Fire Frog’s 5-2 loss to the Hammerheads. The walks are still there as he has walked five in 7.1 innings, but he’s given up just three hits during that time, too. Troy Bacon had a rough game - giving up two earned runs in three innings and picking up the loss. Justin Kelly gave up two earned runs as well over two innings but struck out five. Cutter Dyals was the lone Fire Frog to not give up a run - pitching 0.2 perfect innings.

The William Contreras Express is beginning to warm up as the young catcher went 2-for-3 and picked up his first home run of the season. Contreras is now sporting an .871 OPS on the season and threw out a would be base stealer.

The Jefrey Ramos Show continued as the left fielder went 2-for-4 while hitting his first homer of the season as well. Ramos now has a .320 OBP through 6 games and has yet to pick up a single walk.
