Daily Farm Round-Up: 7-4-14 

Matt Wisler and James Needy dominated on the mound tonight for the Chihuahuas and Missions, respectively, as both teams enjoyed victories.


Hitting Prospect of the Day: Cody Overbeck

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Matt Wisler


El Paso Chihuahuas 5, Salt Lake Bees 1

Reymond Fuentes – LF: 2-5, K

Jonathan Galvez – DH: 2-4, 2B, BB, K, Run scored

Tyler Greene – SS: 1-5, 2K

Jeff Francoeur – RF: 1-4, BB, K, 2 Runs scored

Chris Nelson – 3B: 2-3, 3B, 2RBI, 2BB, 2 Runs scored

Cody Decker – 1B: 2-5, 2B, 3RBI, K

Matt Wisler – SP: 7.0 IP, 5H, ER, BB, 2K (W, 5-4)

Notes: Matt Wisler enjoyed one of his best starts with the Chihuahuas. Triple-A is the first level that Wisler really struggled at throughout the minor leagues, but Wisler has made the necessary adjustments and has really started pitching well. Considering the fact that Padre starter Jesse Hahn is on an innings limit, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Wisler come up and take his spot in the rotation when that innings limit is reached.


San Antonio Missions 7, Tulsa Drillers 4

Cory Spangenberg – CF: 2-5, 2B, Run scored

Adam Buschini – 3B: 2-5

Casey McElroy – 2B: 2-4, RBI

Rymer Liriano – LF: 0-5, 4K

Yeison Asencio – RF: 2-3, 2B, BB, 2 Runs scored

Cody Overbeck – 1B: 2-4, HR(5), 4RBI, K, Run scored

James Needy – SP: 6.2 IP, 8H, 2ER, 0BB, 4K (W, 6-3)

Notes: The Missions beat up on the Drillers’ starter Jonathan Gray, who was selected 3rd overall by the Rockies last year. James Needy has quietly been dominant for the Missions. Not only does Needy own the 4th best ERA in the Texas League, but over the month of June, Needy went 2-0 with a 1.26 ERA across 6 starts and 35.2 innings pitched. Cory Spangenberg has hit safely in all 3 games since his return to the Missions.


Lake Elsinore Storm 4, High Desert Mavericks 6

Mallex Smith – DH: 1-5, HR(1), RBI, K, Run scored

Benji Gonzalez – 2B: 1-3, 2B, 2BB

Diego Goris – SS: 1-4, HR(13), RBI, BB, Run scored

Gabriel Quintana – 3B: 2-5, K

Dane Phillips – C: 2-5, K

Corey Adamson – RF: 1-4, HR(5), RBI, K, Run scored

Joe Ross – SP: 6.0 IP, 5H, 3R, 2ER, BB, 4K, HR Allowed

Notes: Joe Ross rebounded nicely after a start that saw him allow 11 hits. Ross is coming off a shaky June that saw him post a 5.74 ERA over 5 starts and 26.2 innings pitched. On the year, Ross is 8-4 with a 3.78 ERA and 79 strikeouts over 88 innings pitched.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 1, West Michigan Whitecaps 3

Ronnie Richardson – CF: 0-4

Dustin Peterson – 3B: 2-4, 2B, RBI, K

Jake Bauers – 1B: 0-3, BB, K

Franmil Reyes – RF: 1-4

Ryan Miller – C: 0-4, 4K

Nick Schulz – DH: 2-4, K

Jimmy Brasoban – SP: 5.0 IP, 6H, 3ER, 2BB, 4K (L, 0-2)

Notes: Dustin Peterson is now on a 7 game hitting streak; he has 2 home runs and 7 RBI’s over that span. Peterson is hitting .272 with 8 home runs and 66 RBI’s on the year. Peterson’s 66 RBI’s lead the Midwest League. Jimmy Brasoban made his first start with the TinCaps since April 23rd. Brasoban wasn’t outstanding in this game, but it was arguable his best start with Fort Wayne.


Eugene Emeralds 7, Boise Hawks 1

Trae Turner – DH: 0-4, BB

Jalen Goree – 2B: 2-5, 3B, 2 Runs scored

Franchy Cordero – SS: 3-4, 2B, HR(3), BB, 3 Runs scored

Marcus Davis – LF: 3-4, HR(4), 2RBI, BB, 2 Runs scored

Nick Torres – RF: 1-5, 2B, 2RBI, K

Trae Santos – 1B: 0-3, BB

Griffin Russell – SP: 4.0 IP, 3H, ER, 2BB, 5K

Notes: San Diego’s 4th round draft pick, Nick Torres, made his debut with the Emeralds today and hit a 2-run double. Torres was the heart of a strong Cal Poly team this year and projects to be a solid bat; he has the ability to hit for contact and power.
