Just was thinking about how hard it must be to be a minor league manager - you have a kid doing well and is the ace of your staff then he is called up and you have a #6 guy taking over that slot for your ace. If you are lucky they promote a kid from the level below who is dominating that level, but more likely you make due with a backup. Yet you still need to try to win and not blow out anyones arm. Losing Manoah will be a big challenge for Casey Candaele in his first year running a AAA team - a guy I loved cheering for as an Expo (his mom played in the AAGPBL as did his aunt so lots of baseball talent in that family). Jeff Ware is the pitching coach and hopefully he can do a good job with the rest of the staff. Team ERA is 3.00 after removing Manaoh so something is going right there. Although a lot of the rotation has issues - Allgeyer has a 5.19 ERA, Waguespack 5.65, Zeuch 5.68. Only 2 pitchers are sub 25 after Manoah's promotion - Pearson and Tice. So this is more a 'ton of guys to back up the majors' than a ton of prospects.

Simeon Woods Richardson in AA is probably ready for AAA at age 20 - 2.37 ERA in 4 starts, 19 IP 14 H 8 BB 31 SO. Not the Manoah level, but extremely good. I doubt he'll be in AA come July. Elvis Luciano, at 21, is also in AA 3.95 ERA in 4 starts, 13 2/3 IP 12 H 7 BB 13 SO. He will probably be in AA all year. Maximo Castillo at 22 has a 4.13 ERA there over 3 starts 13 IP 16 H 5 BB 10 SO. He needs to move it up a notch. Kyle Johnston is 24 and has a 1.47 ERA over 4 starts covering 18 1/3 IP 17 H 9 BB 9 SO which suggests his ERA is a bit flashy vs the stats under it. Zach Logue is the geezer at 25 (9th round pick in 2017) with a 3.38 ERA over 4 starts, 21 1/3 IP 15 H 3 BB 27 SO and looks ready for AAA now (he had 1 game there in 2019). He should start today I think.

Thank you to #2JBrumfield and Gerry for doing these daily farm reports.

I like and regularly check C's Plus Baseball. Thanks. Sometime during the season I am hoping to hear a description of the pitching arsenal of Kloffenstein, Van Eyk, H Danner and J Maese. Velo, movement etc... I am following those pitchers quite closely. Game stats are good to see in the boxscore. Tyler Zickel has done some great interviews. I enjoyed his interview with Donny Murphy. Hope he gets an interview with the pitching coach or maybe some of these pitchers.

Top prospects don't spend much time at AAA.
It can be a miserable place filled with old timers and guys on the bubble.
The exception being the Durham Bulls, which is the Rays service time manipulation center.

NH Twitter saying Groshans will be back in the lineup today.
Gerry - Wednesday, May 26 2021 @ 02:36 PM EDT (#398799) #
Troy Miller makes his AA debut tonight. Groshans is DH, Martin SS.

Simeon Woods Richardson was placed on the temporarily inactive list yesterday. I suspect its because he has joined the US Olympic team as they prepare for the qualifiers.

Troy Miller replaces SWR.
