5/7/23 : Week Five Minor League Review (5/2 to 5/7)

A winning week for the four affiliates as they went a combined 19-5.  Clearwater swept their series and has a thirteen game winning streak, they are getting great play all around.

Reading’s Carlos De La Cruz, Johan Rojas and Ethan Wilson had outstanding weeks hitting two,three and four respectively in the batting order, collectively they were 36 for 77 (.468) with six doubles, a triple, five home runs and twenty two RBIs.  The Hartford broadcasters said it was the biggest output by hitters in the two thru four slots they can remember in a week. 😳

For Lehigh Valley Jake Cave continued to stroke the baseball regardless of venue, Simon Muzziotti remained sizzling hot .  Marcus Lee Sang, Kendall Simmons and Hao Yu Lee had strong weeks in North Carolina for Jersey Shore and Caleb Ricketts remained as hot as the Florida sun for Clearwater.

Mick Abel continued to shine on the mound for Reading as did Tyler Phillips.  Clearwater got strong pitching performances from multiple hurlers.  Nick Nelson, Ranger Suarez and Andrew Bellatti all pitched well in their two rehab appearances each during the week.  Griff McGarry returned to the hill as well with a rehab inning for Clearwater.  TJ Zeuch threw a complete game (seven innings) for a win for Lehigh Valley.

Position Players :

On Tuesday third baseman Felix Reyes was 2 for 3 (singles) and scored a run, he also stole a base.  Raylin Heredia doubled and was 1 for 3.  Dakota Kotowski had the RBI and was 1 for 3 with a single.  Matt Alifano singled, the team was held to five hits and two walks.  On Thursday Matt Alifano went 3 for 3 (singles) with a walk, RBI and stolen base.  Jorge Garcia was 2 for 3 (two doubles).  Kliubert Avila, Marco Soto and Jehisbert Sevilla each had singles, the team had eight hits total.

On Friday Raylin Heredia and Dakota Kotowski each had two hits, Heredia crushed a triple off the left field fence and had four RBIs. Kotowski’s two hits were both doubles, he had two RBIs.  Ryan Leitch and Diego Gonzalez each doubled.  Yhoswar Garcia walked three times, stole two bases and scored twice, I enjoy watching him play, very animated.  William Bergolla made his extended spring debut and had a single, walk, RBI and scored twice.  He made a very heady base running play on his single to right field where the fielder threw home to attempt to cut down the incoming runner, William never broke stride and easily reached second base on the play.  Marco Soto, Jorge Garcia and Gavin Tonkel each singled, Tonkel stole a base, he’s another very fleet afoot outfielder.

Pitchers :

On Tuesday Jonathan Petit started on the mound and went two scoreless innings.  Eight other hurlers pitched, Luis Gomez went one and on third scoreless innings, no hits or walks and one strikeout.  Malik Binns and Saul Teran each pitched a scoreless inning.  On Thursday Daniel Mejia started (two IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 BB, 3 K’s) followed by Christopher Soriano (two IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 2 K’s), Guisseppe Velasquez (two IP,  1 R, 0 H, 2 BB, 2 K’s), Nathan Karaffa (two IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 K’s) and Matt Seelinger (one IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 K’s).

A couple fellas threw the best I’ve seen them on Friday, Malik Binns had great spin and movement on his curve ball, couple with a lively fastball that he was in or near the zone with it was a very strong outing for Malik, saw him afterwards and he was pleased, the big fella can be a presence if he can command the zone, today he did that.  Ty Collins struck out the side in his inning of work, also had a really good fastball and the slider was very effective. Oswald Medina impressed as well in his inning of work, good pop.  Nicoly Pina would have been out of his inning unscathed except the umpire missed a strike call, still it was good to see Nicoly throwing better than earlier in the year, was up to 94 mph and had decent break on his slider. Saul Teran gave up an unearned run in two innings on one hit and one walk, he struck out three, first time I’ve seen Teran in person, 90 to 92 mph fastball with late life.
