Three Stars

Second Star - Jamari Baylor

First Star - Victor Arias



Ten hits and six runs for Buffalo. The hot hitting Riley Tirotta had a double and walked twice. He played third base and made two errors. Addison Barger had two hits. Orelvis Martinez had two hits and after a dry spell in May the ball has started to drop in for him again. Phil Clarke, new to AAA, was 2-4 with a walk.

Andrew Bash went 5.1 innings and he shut LHV down on two hits. Bash has been pitching well for Buffalo. He doesn't pitch a lot of innings, about 4 innings per start, and usually holds the opposition to one or two runs. Eric Swanson had a tough day. He gave up a home run then walked a couple. Mike Mayers followed and gave up a home run meaning Swanson had three earned runs on his record.

NH had just six hits, Alan Roden and Josh Kasevich were held off the bases. Andres Sosa homered for the only run.

Trenton Wallace started and he was taken deep twice leading to three runs in 4.1 innings. Eric Pardinho pitched the last inning, there was one hit off him.

Three home runs propelled Vancouver to the win. Estiven Machado hit a three run home run in the second inning, one of his two hits in the game. Jamari Baylor hit a solo shot in the sixth. It was his third home run in the last four games. Baylor signed with the Jays as a free agent two and a half weeks ago. Jommer Hernandez also hit a solo shot, one of his three hits on the night. Jace Bohrofen had two hits including a double.

Rafael Sanchez started but didn't stick around for the win. He was pulled after 4.2 innings and 88 pitches. Everett scored three runs off him with eight hits.

Christian Feliz homered again for Dunedin, a two run shot and Feliz's tenth. He added a single. Victor Arias went 4-5, one of his hits was a double. Arias had hit .360 in April, but then dropped to .211 in May. With these four hits he is up to .263 for June.

Gage Stanifer started for Dunedin and went five innings. He allowed one run on two hits. Stanifer gave up 2, 2 and 6 runs in his first three starts. In his last five starts he has allowed 3 runs in 21 innings. He has given up 10 hits and 11 walks in those 21 innings with 21 strikeouts. Unusually he had no strikeouts on Sunday. 50 of his 67 pitches, or 75%, were sinkers, averaging 92 mph.

Aaron Munson threw two innings in relief. Munson was drafted in the 19th round last season. The last earned run he allowed was on May 5th. Since then he has pitched 12.2 innings, 16 K's, 9 hits, three walks. Munson throws 4 seam FB, cutter and slider. His FB averages 93 mph.

Dunedin is producing some good SPs. C O'Halloran and now F Perez, N Perry and G Stanifer all 20 years old doing well and throwing reasonably hard. 94 mph.

Baylor has stated off on fire.

A 2019 3rd rounder out of high school (3 spots after Dasan Brown), he went thru the Philly and Colorado systems before being let go. He was signed in May by the Jays out of an independent league.

Looks like he played quite well at A ball last year, but struggled at A+

He is still only 23, so who knows.

Anyone have a take on whether Tirotta can actually play 3B or not?

Roden's now up to 6th in organizational wRC (100+ PA) at 130 despite a modest .280 BABIP. Considering they had him make some major mechanical changes, I'm happy to see him adapting relatively quickly all things considered and unlocking a bit more power.

Deserves to be in AAA. I think we can survive Lantigua and Robertson losing a few ABs.

I totally agree about moving Roden up but he looked to me (in the few highlights that Iíve seen recently) that heís ditched a number of the mechanical changes that he was trying at the beginning of the year. He looks back to last yearís swing with his hands higher. Tiny sample size though:)

Good to know, thanks Nigel. There was a recent chat with DM Fox of Future Blue Jays where Roden said the following:

"Things are coming along. Something I didnít anticipate with some of the physical adjustments was the need to also somewhat make some mental/approach adjustments as well in order to make use of the physical adjustments- if that makes sense. So that is what Iíve been working through so far this season. It has been, at times, a mixed bag of results, but I am confident in the changes."

I mentioned in a recent MLU that it looked to me that Roden had gone back to a higher hand start to his at bats. I don't know if its all the way back to last years but his hands are higher than they were in the spring.

The FCL team got gonged again. 6-21 now.

Any reason other than poor talent acquisition to explain?

The FCL team is bad. 6-21 record.

The only pitcher they used last night that is young is L Torres who turned 19 Feb and is pitching well. The others are 20 or older. Some from last night are pitching well enough except for Guerra and Ortiz.

Many of the position players are young, short (5'9" or less) and not succeeding. Their short stature causes me to have a low opinion of their future. Sorry if this offends anyone.

I like the DSL team (2-2 record) because they are young (many 2024 signings) and tall 6'+ and playing well so far.

Rematch with the FCL Tigers today. The players must be very discouraged by the 6-21 record.
