Jimmy Robbins had eleven strikeouts in Vancouver's win. Cooper Benson had eight K's in Dunedin's win. New Hampshire just hit four home runs to help them win. Buffalo suffered the only loss as Casey Lawrence was not his usual self.

This is what I noted from yesterday's games.

Casey Lawrence gave up two home runs in his five innings. Hayden Juenger threw 2.2 innings. He too surrendered a home run. He had just one K.

Cullen Large tripled and singled and scored the only run. The Bisons had just six hits.

The Fisher Cats were outhit 13-8 but won by three runs. They hit four home runs. Davis Schneider led off the game with a home run. Cam Eden hit a two run shot in the sixth. Trevor Schwecke followed with a solo shot. Zac Cook hit a three run homer in the seventh. Schneider and Schwecke had two hits each. Addison Barger was 1-3 with two walks. Orelvis 0-3 with one walk and a sac fly.

In Vancouver Jimmy Robbins went five innings, 77 pitches. He struck out eleven and just allowed one hit.

A pair of walks and a hit batter set up the C's to score three in the sixth, thanks to a sac fly, a ground out and a single Two Everett errors helped Vancouver to tack on two more in the seventh. Garrett Spain homered for the final run in the eighth.

Vinny Capra had two doubles and Will Robertson had three hits for Dunedin. They both should be on their way up the ladder tomorrow. Rainer Nunez and Roque Salinas also had three hits, the Jays had 15 in total.

Cooper Benson started and went five shutout innings, one hit and eight K's. Benson averages just 90 mph with his fastball. He had the most swings and misses with his slider.

Nice to see Robbins coming along. 20th Round pick in 2019. He is a lefty, so who knows.

I have been watching YouTube babyjays for video on our prospects.

Zulueta has 4 pitches that he was able to throw for strikes. He looked better to me as a SP than Tiedemann. Tiedeman is a lot younger and was successful by getting the FB & SL well enough in the zone to get the K. They need to advance through AA/AAA and to the ML.

Groshans said AA pitchers throw very hard and have secondary pitches that they cannot control/command well. The veteran AAA pitchers throw 89-92 with secondary pitches that the have good control/command of. I take his word for that because he should know.

So far my post looks good to me (smile).

My conclusion is that the jump from AAA to the ML for hitters or pitchers is the hardest jump. I wish I could prove that. Using Oakland D Jimenez was doing well until injured. Z Jackson is getting great results but with ugly bb rate. So bad that Z Jackson has destroyed my reasoning. But good luck and success to our 2016 3rd round pick.

Adrian Hernandez, who has been on the IL, will pitch in the FCL today.

Irv Carter seems to be figuring out how to pitch as a pro. Five shutout innings today with five K's. Just one hit off him.

AAA has a lot of AAAA players who are bitter and command respect due to seniority.
It can be a terrible place for a young highly rated prospect.

That's good news about Adrian Hernandez, Gerry.  What did he injure?
Gerry - Tuesday, August 02 2022 @ 08:02 PM EDT (#418899) #
Hernandez had shoulder soreness. I am not quite sure what that means but its good that he is back throwing.

BA on De Jesus who is heading to Vancouver.

That strikeout rate is on the higher side, but scouts highest on De Jesus believe he has a sound swing and tracks pitches well. De Jesus has shown the ability to drive the ball well on pitches middle-in, with better results on pitches on the outer third this year because he's not flying open early as often, helping him drive the ball well in the air the opposite way. It's still an aggressive approach that he will have to rein in some, but some scouts see De Jesus as a future everyday third baseman with 20-25 home run power. De Jesus has spent time at shortstop, but his range fits better at third base, with the hands and plus arm to stay there.
