Prospect Watch: Last Day of the Season for Bradenton and Greensboro Gets Rained Out; Indianapolis Puts Up 19 Runs

It’s the last day of the regular season for Greensboro and Bradenton. The Marauders need a win today and a Dunedin loss to make the playoffs, so you could say this is a big day for them. Altoona still has a week left, while Indianapolis has 2 1/2 weeks left. I’ll fill in the TBDs as they become available. UPDATE: Greensboro and Bradenton were both canceled due to weather

Game Recap:

Indianapolis put up 19 runs on Sunday, with the entire lineup, including two mid-game substitutes contributing to the carnage in the 19-9 victory. Peter Solomon made his debut with the Pirates a week after being picked up on waivers and he allowed two runs on two hits and three walks in three innings as the starter. Cody Bolton, Joe Jacques, Hunter Stratton and Travis MacGregor each tossed shutout ball, while Cam Alldred had a forgettable game with seven earned runs, while failing to get through an inning of work. His season ERA went up a full run (2.18 to 3.24). Highlights of the offense including Ji-hwan Bae reaching base five times and scoring four runs. Blake Sabol, Bligh Madris and Mason Martin each driving in three runs. Kevin Padlo reaching base all six times at the plate on three hits and three walks. Jared Oliva staying hot with another three-hit game. Martin had two doubles to give him 28 on the season. He also struck out twice, moving within three K’s of Corey Pointer’s all-time Pirates single-season minor league record of 177 strikeouts, set in 1998.

Game Recap:

Altoona lost 6-5 in 11 innings, with both teams scoring each inning of the extra innings. The Curve were getting no-hit for a good portion of this game until Liover Peguero hit his ninth homer of the season in the sixth inning. It was a two-run homer, with Fabricio Macias reaching on a HBP before him. Henry Davis doubled in a run in the seventh. The double by Davis and homer by Peguero were the only hits in the game for the Curve. Lolo Sanchez hit a sac fly in the tenth that temporarily gave the Curve the lead. An error scored Peguero in the 11th, giving Altoona a 5-4 lead at the time. Matt Gorski stole his 20th base of the season, tenth for Altoona. Aaron Shortridge started and went three innings, allowing one run. Altoona followed with six relievers over the rest of the game, with none of them allowing more than one earned run.

MM is a mystery. Players who strike out as much as he has usually do not have large numbers of Walks. He has 50 Walks so his K/BB would be about 3+/1, which is not bad in this era of baseball.

How does a kid have a VG eye at the plate to walk 50 times, but not be able to put that same eye to work to cut down his number of K’s? I guess that is part of the frustration. Just think though, if he had the 7/1 K/BB of Chavis, he’d have 350 K’s!

Do we put Bolton on the 40 man? He seems like a like rule V selection, to me.

emjayinTN

Definitely. 70 IP at AAA with a low 3’s ERA after missing action in 2020 and 2021 due to non-arm injuries. I think a knee surgery took him out all of 2021. They have taken care not to work him too much in the second half of the season, so it seems they have plans for him in a Pirate Uni. Pitching every 5th day but usually only 2 or 3 innings.

Just when I thought Alldred deserved a promotion….

Holy crap 16 runs for indy in the 4th!

Iowasteel

Dunedin game is now a rainout. That eliminates Bradenton. They are still listed in a delay. No sense restarting.

AdministrativeSky236

Sad!

Did I miss the DSL top ten prospects? If so, where can I find it?

AdministrativeSky236
