Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-18-13 

Sloppy defense cost Fort Wayne as the two unearned runs they allowed were the difference in a 3-2 loss. Lake Elsinore broke their 5 game losing streak due to a quality start from James Needy. Kalian Sams continues to drive in runs at a prolific pace; his hot bat helped overcome the struggles of Donn Roach as San Antonio won 9-6. Yasmani Grandal made his 2013 debut in the T-Pads 4-2 victory.

Round Up Image 234

Hitting Prospect of the Day: Kalian Sams

Pitching Prospect of the Day: James Needy


Tucson Padres 4, Iowa Cubs 2

Dean Anna-2B: 1-3, K

Dan Robertson-RF: 0-3, RBI, 2BB, Run scored

Yasmani Grandal-C: 2-4, RBI, Run scored

Jonathan Galvez-3B: 0-4, K

Gregorio Petit-SS: 2-4, 2b, RBI

Jaff Decker-CF: 0-3, BB, Run scored

Sean O’Sullivan-SP: 7.0 IP, 6H, 2ER, BB, 4K (W, 3-2)

Notes: The storyline for this game revolves heavily around the return of catcher Yasmani Grandal. Grandal had a very successful 2013 debut for the T-Pads as he collected 2 hits and drove in a run. Sean O’Sullivan has pitched well for the T-Pads, he owns a 3.96 ERA over 50 innings and has collected 43 strikeouts over that span. The Padres need to call O’Sullivan up by June 15th or he’ll be able to opt out of his contract and try his hand in free agency.


San Antonio Missions 9, Frisco RoughRiders 6

Reymond Fuentes-DH: 1-4, Run scored

Rico Noel-CF: 0-4, BB, K, Run scored

Everett Williams-LF: 1-4, BB, 2 Runs scored

Kalian Sams-RF: 3-4, 2 2b, HR(7), 3RBI, BB, K, 2 Runs scored, 2 SB(2)

Jake Blackwood-3B: 2-4, RBI, BB, K, Run scored

Eddy Rodriguez-C: 1-5, K

Donn Roach-SP: 3.0 IP, 5H, 5R, 4ER, 3BB, 2K

Kevin Quackenbush-RP: 1.0 IP, H, 0R, 2K (S, 6)

Notes: Kalian Sams cannot be stopped; he has hit 5 home runs and driven in 14 runs over his past 10 games. He’s only played 11 games with the Missions and he has hit 7 home runs and has collected 18 RBI all while accumulating a .350 average. Since throwing 6 shutout innings on May 6th, Donn Roach has not been nearly as sharp. He has thrown just 7 innings since then and has allowed 15 hits and 14 earned runs in that span. His ERA has jumped up to 5.53 over 9 starts on the year.


Lake Elsinore Storm 4, Modesto Nuts 3

Cory Spangenberg-2B: 0-5, 3K

Yeison Asencio-RF: 1-4, BB

Jace Peterson-SS: 2-4, RBI, K, 2 Runs scored

Robert Kral-C: 1-5, K, Run scored

Kyle Gaedele-DH: 1-3, BB, K, Run scored

Duanel Jones-3B: 2-4, 2b, 3RBI

Travis Jankowski-CF: 1-4, 2K

James Needy-SP: 6.0 IP, 4H, 2ER, 2BB, 4K, HR Allowed (W, 1-1)

Johnny Barbato-RP: 1.1 IP, 0H, 0R, 2K (S, 5)

Notes: Lake Elsinore finally gets a win after losing their last 5 games. Even with the win, the Storm record remains atrocious; they are just 13-28 on the season. James Needy tossed his first quality start of the season. He has pitched well all year as he boasts an ERA of 3.19 over 8 starts. Despite how well he’s pitched, he’s been a victim of poor run support as his record is just 1-1.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 2, Lake County Captains 3

Alberth Martinez-LF: 0-4, 2K

Corey Adamson-RF: 2-3, BB, K

Jeremy Baltz-DH: 1-4, 3b, Run scored

Gabriel Quintana-3B: 1-4, 3K

Luis Tejada-1B: 2-3, 3b, RBI, Run scored

Diego Goris-2B: 1-3, RBI

Ruben Mejia-SP: 5.0 IP, 5H, 3R, ER, BB, 2K (L, 2-4)

Notes: Since moving to the rotation, Ruben Mejia has enjoyed success; after a rough first start he has thrown 3 straight starts in which he has gone at least 5 innings with just 1 earned run. He has lowered his ERA to 2.57 over 35 innings. Corey Adamson has quietly enjoyed a solid 2013 campaign. Over 120 AB’s, Adamson has 36 hits which is good for a .300 average. He also has 12 stolen bases on the year.
