Game Recap:

Quinn Priester lasted only four outs longer than Burrows, but Greensboro had to blow a two-run, ninth-inning lead to lose to Hudson Valley in ten, 11-9.  Priester gave up five runs, four of them in the third, when he got knocked out.  The Hoppers eventually came back to take an 8-6 lead.  Fabricio Macias, Sammy Siani and Dariel Lopez led the offense.  Macias had a single and a double, and drove in four runs.  Siani reached base four times on two singles and two walks, and scored twice.  Lopez had three singles.  Jacob Gonzalez and Francisco Acuna each added a double.  Domingo Gonzalez came on with one out in the fifth and allowed just one run until two outs in the ninth, when he gave up a double and a game-tying home run.  Wandi Montout let the free runner and two others score in the tenth and the Hoppers could only respond with one run.

P2Daily: It’s Bradenton Marauders Week on Pirates Prospects

  • Final Line: 3 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 7 K

Notable Performances:

  • Tsung-Che Cheng 1-2
  • Jase Bowen 1-2, HR (8)

Game Recap:

Bradenton’s game with Fort Myers was suspended after three innings with the Marauders trailing, 2-1.  The teams will resume play before the regularly scheduled game on Wednesday.  Before play stopped, Valentin Linarez allowed just one hit over three innings and fanned seven, but he walked three and allowed two runs.  Tsung-Che Cheng returned from the injured list and singled his first time up.  Jase Bowen accounted for the Marauders’ run with his eighth home run of the year.

RK: FCL PIRATES

Game Time: Noon

Box Score: LINK

Starting Pitcher: Enmanuel De Los Santos

  • Final Line: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

Notable Performances:

  • Braylon Bishop 0-5
  • Jesus Castillo 1-1, BB
  • Enmanuel Terrero 1-3, BB
  • Jeral Toledo 0-2, 2 BB
  • Owen Kellington 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K
  • Owen Sharts 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 K
  • Bubba Chandler 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Game Recap:

The FCL Pirates (4-2) didn’t have one of their better efforts against the Rays, with errors, walks and a lack of hitting leading to an 8-2 loss.  Starter Enmanuel De Los Santos gave up five runs over two and a third innings, but four were unearned.  After Yoelvis Reyes got the last two outs in the third, Owen Kellington came in and that didn’t go well.  He faced two batters, walking one and fanning the other, then left with a hamstring problem.  According to twitter, it’s not bad, and as we know, when the Pirates say an injury is not bad, you can take it to the bank.  Owen Sharts relieved Kellington and that didn’t go well, either, as Sharts walked four in an inning and a third.  Bubba Chandler worked an inning and nothing bad happened; in fact, he was the only Pirate pitcher not to walk anybody on a day when the staff walked ten.  Nic Laio finished with two innings and one run allowed.

The hitters managed only four hits, but did pick up eight walks, making 18 overall for the game.  (Low minors games can be an ordeal at times.)  Rafael Escalante accounted for one run by tripling and coming home on a sacrifice fly.  Jesus Castillo had a single and a walk, and is now hitting .579.  He left for a pinch hitter after those two plate appearances, with no explanation apparent from the box score.  Jasiah Dixon had the other two hits.

RK: DSL PIRATES BLACK

Game Time: 11:00am

Box Score: LINK

Starting Pitcher: Victor Cabreja

  • Kelvin Diaz 1-2, 2B, BB, 3 SB
  • Ewry Espinal 2-2, 2 2B, BB
  • Wilbur Martinez 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

Game Recap:

The Black team (5-2) came back from an early 3-0 deficit to beat the Mets 1, 5-3.  Starter Victor Cabreja recorded only two outs and gave up two runs.  Greiber Mendez gave up an unearned run and Jarlen De La Paz worked a scoreless inning with three strikeouts.  Wilbur Martinez finished the game with four scoreless innings.  Adolfo Oviedo entered the game but faced nobody due to a rain delay.  Ewry Espinal had a big day, reaching base three times on two doubles and a walk, and scoring three times.  Kelvin Diaz, Eybert Escalona and Wesley Zapata each had doubles.  The Pirates stole six bases in seven tries, with Diaz accounting for three and Rodolfo De La Cruz two, including home.

RK: DSL PIRATES GOLD

  • Isaias Dipre 2-4, 2B

Game Recap:

The Gold team (5-2) scored two in the top of the seventh to edge the Mets 2, 6-5.  Seventeen-year-old Pitterson Rosa pitched well again, with three scoreless innings.  He gave up just one hit.  Keneth Quintanilla and Wilkin Valdez combined to allow five runs, four earned.  Luis Faringthon got the last four outs, although he let two inherited runners score.  Isaias Dipre had a single and double, and drove in two.  John Zorrilla homered for the second straight game.  Roinny Aguiar, another 17-year-old, doubled, walked, stole a base and scored twice.  Gustavo Armas had a single and a walk.

Burrows and Priester left with stuff intact right? These games happen.

NMR

Indy got absolutely smoked by recently-demoted Kyle Muller. Always enlightening to see how prospects stack up to even fringe big league arms.

Scrappy2499

It wasn’t a total loss of a day, at least Davis didn’t get hit…

ArkyWags

So Burrows not getting promoted now?

AdministrativeSky236

No matter what game i turn to bad things are happening lol

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Linarez seems to have turned it around

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

I’m done commenting on how pitcher’s are doing mid-game

hoffmark83

Seems like we have more “Not a great day’s” Than we have great days. Farm system seems to have taken a step back or two this season

agent00

he’s the new keller damn

patrick_kelly

Fielders choice to Peguero where they recorded no outs. What the hell happened there?

AdministrativeSky236

Welp that certainly wasnt the outing that he was expecting im sure

AdministrativeSky236

Not watching but based on gameday looks like burrows is living middle middle a lot

AdministrativeSky236

Burrows in trouble early

agent00

yikes

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Looks like Cheng activated for Bradenton.

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

And there’s the Florencio to “Development List” I expected

AdministrativeSky236

Wonder what changed so much for him from last year

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Probably just a lot of feasting on less advanced hitters, much like Florez before he jumped to Hi A last season.

Colin

Has there been any update on Nick G?

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

I’d like to think he’s ok, but they’re “backfield developing” his swing a bit to maybe figure out why he swings through so many pitches.

Colin

Amazing how these minor injuries turn into weeks of recovery

AdministrativeSky236

Kellington hurt?

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Then they brought in Owen #2 cause of the shitty situation

agent00

god damnit

agent00

a minor issue eh? i now expect him to miss the rest of the season  😂 

but for real that’s good. i was hoping it wasn’t an arm or shoulder issue

the pirate way

AdministrativeSky236

Oh good!

agent00

prospects live came out with an updated top 400 list for the draft. cam collier is ranked 5th  👀 

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Am I looking at the right one? I’m seeing him at 17th

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Ok. It’s from May 15th

agent00

i wonder if they just didn’t update the date on the page, because joe doyle, from the site just tweeted out a direct link to it saying it was updated.

https://twitter.com/JoeDoyleMiLB/status/1536736911141662721

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

May be the case. I see what you’re saying.

Highest I’ve seen Eric Brown. Drop him. Drop him lol I want him with our 2nd round pick

agent00

are you the one who likes neto? i saw some love for him somewhere on twitter, just forget from who lol

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Yeah, I’ve mentioned him a couple times. I think here and on the bird app. I don’t think we have a shot to get him though. Assuming Ben and Co. don’t do something absolutely crazy lol

agent00

i thought so. before i saw you mention him, i didn’t know anything about him. so i was surprised to see him ranked that high on that list. 11th overall! pretty impressive

yeah i don’t think the pirates are going to get him  😆 

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

BA had him 26th and bumped him to 17th after regionals. So, I guess he’s someone that could potentially slide.

agent00

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Which, part of the reason I’m saying I’d like Brown, is cause most lists have Neto where I suspect we can’t get him, so I like Brown as an option to stick at SS. I like Doughty for his bat mainly.

AdministrativeSky236

Pounding the table!

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

I wanna see Ewry in FCL!!! Just because

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Or I guess FSL. So I can actually “see” him

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Also seeing that Mitchell Miller assigned to Bradenton

agent00

rosa still looking good today. no runs allowed so far this year. i have high hopes for this kid

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Sizeable kid, if his MiLB page already has him at 178 lbs, whereas Carlos Jimenez is still listed 140 lbs lol

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

This week is mostly eh, unless seeing young hitters go against “old-for-their-level” pitchers is your thing. Gwinnett has quite a few once Top 100 guys that have had a cup of coffee in bigs, but are back after not being able to find their footing.

AdministrativeSky236

Hopefully this means we should have a big week in the minors this week

Bucs'N'Pucks (Jeff Reed)

Possible, but it’s also likely Pirates A ball hitters struggle (as most already have all year) against “advanced” pitching, although anything is always possible in Greensboro park lol

Both opposing A ball teams have quite a few older pitchers.

AdministrativeSky236

Ah yes tuesday is article drop day, my new favorite day of the week! Super excited to get through all this new content

Cobra

Sorry to be late to the game here: FCL/DSL games aren’t broadcast , correct?
