BBDP May 25th: Murphy’s law: expect JR Murphy to go 5/5

BBDP MVP: JR Murphy – 5/5, 2B, 2 SB

For fun, I just looked up Jose Quintana, former Yankees farmhand who is now with the White Sox. In a crazy coincidence, it turns out he was set to make his first start against Cleveland tonight. He went six innings and let up 2 ER, with four strikeouts. He threw 5.2 innings of shutout ball in relief against them on May 7th. Looks like the White Sox are getting good use out of him. He’s a lefty too.

Triple-A Empire State: W 8-7 vs Buffalo. W: Whelan (2-0)

Kevin Russo: 1/4, R, RBI, 2 K (.296)
Jack Cust: 3/5, R, HR (5), 3 RBI, K (.271) Game winning homerun in the bottom of the 10th.
Ronnier Mustelier: 1/4, R, HR (4), 2 RBI, K (.293) Game tying homerun in the 7th.
Brandon Laird: 0/4 (.241)
Dellin Betances: 2 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K (5.59 ERA) He has never in his career been this bad. This is the highest BB/9 of his career.
Chase Whitley: 2.1 IP, 2 H, ER, BB, 2 K , HR (3.24 ERA)
Kevin Whelan: 0.1 IP, 0 ER, BB, K (1.64 ERA) Got the win.

Corban Joseph: 1/4 (.338)
Zoilo Almonte: 1/4, K (.241) First hit since returning.
Cody Johnson: 0/3, BB, 2 K (.290)

High-A Tampa: W 7-1 vs Lakeland. W: Black (1-2)

Ramon Flores: 1/5, R, 2 K, SB (6) (.270)
JR “Murph” Murphy: 5/5, 4 R, 2B, 2 SB (3) (.241) Couldn’t think of a guy in the system who needed a game like this more. 9 for his last 18 (.500)
Rob Segedin: 1/5, R, K (.292)
Neil Medchill: 1/5, R, HR (5), 3 K (.270)
Kyle Roller: 3/5, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 K (.228)
Sean Black: 5 IP, 6 H, R, 0 ER, BB, K, E (1). The unearned run was his own fault so I don’t feel bad. That’s two strong outings in a row though. First time in a long time we’ve seen that from him.
Manuel Barreda: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 K (3.38 ERA) 11 K in his last nine innings, looks like he’s finally tapping into that talent.
Rigoberto Arrebato: 2 IP, H, 0 ER, K (3.8 ERA)

Low-A Charleston: L 12-6 vs Greenville. L: Rutckyj (1-1)

Mason Williams: 1/4, RBI, BB, 3 K (.287) Salvaged the day with a late hit and RBI.
Cito Culver: 1/4, R, BB, 2 K, SB (12), 2 E (11) (.213)
Dante “Bichette Happens” Bichette Jr: 2/5, K, E (9) (.250) Good to see that average creeping up. 12 for his last 39 (.307)
Tyler Austin: 0/3, R, 2 BB, 2 K (.294)
Ben Gamel: 2/5, R, 2B, RBI, K (.277) When you’re hot, you’re hot. 16 for his last 40 (.400)
Angelo “Bubba” Gumbs: 2/5, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K (.266)
Evan Rutckyj: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 5 ER, 4 BB, 2 K (7.11 ERA) Doing his best Dellin Betances impression. Seriously though could he have made me look any worse after that glowing article I posted about him earlier today?
Daniel Mahoney: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, K, HR (4.56 ERA)
Joel De La Cruz: 3 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, BB, 4 K, HR (3.46 ERA) Seems like no one could hold them down today.
Fred Lewis: 1 IP, Zeros (2.49 ERA) No one, that is, except for Fred Lewis.
Casey Stevenson: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, ER, HR (9.00) Don’t quit your day job as a third baseman Casey.
