Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-11-16 

The upper level teams struggled as the Chihuahuas and Missions both suffered losses while the lower level teams earned victories. Austin Allen stayed hot for Fort Wayne while the Storm put 8 runs on the board to cruise to victory over the Mavericks.


Hitting Prospect of the Day: Austin Allen

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Enyel De Los Santos


El Paso Chihuahuas 3, Tacoma Rainiers 6

Manuel Margot – CF: 1-4

Jemile Weeks – SS: 2-4, 3B

Hunter Renfroe – RF: 0-4, K

James Loney – 1B: 1-4, RBI

Alex Dickerson- DH: 2-4, HR(1), RBI, Run scored

Carlos Asuaje – 2B: 1-3, HR(2), RBI, Run scored

Greg Reynolds – SP: 3.2 IP, 6H, 3ER, 4BB, K (L 0-1)

Leonel Campos – RP: 1.0 IP, 0H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, K

Notes: Carlos Asuaje has started off strong for the Chihuahuas as he’s hit safely in every game he’s played in and homered in each of his last 2 games. Alex Dickerson picked up his first two hits of the new year, including his first home run of 2016. Dickerson played well with the Chihuahuas last year; he hit .307 over 459 ABs. He has little more to prove in the minor leagues, but his path to the majors is not very clear.


San Antonio Missions 1, Tulsa Drillers 10

Nelson Ward – SS: 1-5, 2K, Run scored

Jose Rondon – SS: 1-4, K

Auston Bousfield – CF: 0-2, RBI, BB

Yeison Asencio – RF: 2-4

Gabriel Quintana – 3B: 0-2, BB, K

Rocky Gale – C: 1-4, 2K

Johnny Hellweg – SP: 4.2 IP, 7H, 3ER, 1BB, 0K, 2 HR Allowed (L, 0-1)

Rafael De Paula – RP: 1.0 IP, 3H, 1ER, 0BB, 1K

Notes: Jose Rondon has hit safely in all 4 games he’s played in and is hitting .333 to start the new season. It’s nice to see him start off strong albeit the small sample size as he struggled mightily with the Missions last year. Rafael De Paula, the right hander acquired with Yangervis Solarte for Chase Headley, made his second relief appearance of the season. De Paula has bounced around as a starter and reliever, but after struggling as a starter the past 2 years it looks like pitching in relief will be his new, permanent role. Despite high ERAs De Paula has consistently struck out more than a batter per inning throughout his career, so a move to the bullpen permanently could really benefit him.


Lake Elsinore Storm 8, High Desert Mavericks 4

Franchy Cordero – CF: 0-4, RBI, BB, K, Run scored

Luis Urias – 3B: 2-4, BB, K

Javier Guerra – SS: 0-4, BB, 2K

Franmil Reyes – RF: 2-4, 2B, HR(1), RBI, BB, K, Run scored

Edwin Moreno – LF: 3-5, HR(1), 2RBI, K, 2 Runs scored

Jose Ruiz – C: 2-4, 2RBI, Run scored

Brandon Morrow – SP: 5.1 IP, 5H, 4ER, 2BB, 3K

Jose Torres – RP: 2.0 IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K

Notes: Brandon Morrow make his first rehab start since going on the DL back at the beginning of 2015. While the results weren’t magnificent, Morrow pitched into the 6th and suffered no significant setbacks, which is really all that matters. Jose Ruiz enjoyed a solid day at the plate with 2 hits and 2 RBIs. Ruiz was a highly touted international prospect when the Padres signed him as a 16 year old, but he has never enjoyed lasting success at any level on the Padre farm.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 4, Great Lakes Loons 2

Rod Boykin – LF: 1-5, 3K

Ruddy Giron – SS: 0-4, BB

Michael Gettys – CF: 1-4

Austin Allen – C: 3-4, BB, K

Brad Zunica – 1B: 0-3, BB, 2K, Run scored

Luis Tejada – RF: 2-4, HR(1), 2RBI, K, 2 Runs scored

River Stevens – RF: 1-3, HR(1), 2RBI, K, Run scored

Enyel De Los Santos – SP: 3.2 IP, 4H, 2ER, 0BB, 7K, HR Allowed

Notes: Austin Allen is killing the baseball. Allen has 3 hits in each of his last 3 games and his 14 hits lead the minor leagues. Allen was drafted by the Padres last year with the reputation of a bat first catcher, and he’s making very good on that reputation so far in 2016. Enyel De Los Santos, who was acquired by the Padres from the Mariners for Joaquin Benoit, made his 2016 debut in this game. Enyel allowed 2 runs in just under 4 innings pitched, but also struck out 7 batters. Enyel has posted good strikeout numbers with every professional team he’s played for so this game was just more of the same.
