BBDP July 2nd: Murton homers twice in double header

Sorry for the little hiatus, but I’m back now and ready for some regular BBDP updates.

Big news, Mason Williams has been promoted. Actually, Josh Norris reports that Tyler Austin and Gary Sanchez have beenĀ promoted as well. Eduardo Sosa, Tyson Blaser, and Jose Toussen were sent back to Charleston in a corresponding move.

Josh Norris also mentions that Segedin, Murphy, and Medchill have been promoted to Double-A. Moves abound! Can’t say Tyson Blaser deserved it, but he’s more organizational fodder anyway. Higashioka is also sent down to High-A.

BBDP MVP: Luke Murton – 3/6, 2 HR, one in each game of the double header.

Triple-A SWB: L 5-4 vs Lehigh Valley. L: Bulger (2-1)

Corban “CoJo” Joseph: 2/5, 2B, RBI, 2 K (.270)
Ronnier Mustelier: 0/4, BB, K (.300) 9 for his last 38 (.237), but he has four walks in that time with a .310 OBP. He’d still fit right in.
Frankie Cervelli: 1/5, R, K (.243)
Brandon Laird: 1/4, R, 3B, RBI, BB, K (.227)
Colin Curtis: 2/5, R, 2B, RBI, K (.221)
Ramon Ortiz had 7.1 IP and let up three runs with four strikeouts.

Double-A Trenton: Double Header. Game One: W 12-4 vs Portland. W: Marshall (9-3)

David Adams: 1/4, R (.280)
“Boilin” Zoilo Almonte: 1/3, R, HR (7), RBI, BB, K (.256)
Melky “Melkman 2” Mesa: 4/4, 2B, 4 R, RBI, SB (13) (.277) He’s 15 for his last 38 (.395) with 3 HR. Good to see this, I still maintain that he and Zoilo may be part of the Swisher solution.
Luke Murton: 2/3, 2B, 3 R, HR, 3 RBI, BB, 2 E (.256) 12 for his last 36 (.333) with 4 HR and 10 RBI. This team is pretty hot right now.
Brett Marshall: 5 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 5 K, HR (3.21 ERA) Three or more runs in all of his last three outings.
Francisco Rondon: 2 IP, 2 H, ER, BB, 2 K (3.96 ERA)

Game Two: W 5-3 vs Portland. W: Farquhar

Jose Pirela: 1/4, R, HR (4), 2 RBI (.338)
Zoilo Almonte: 1/3, 2B (.257)
Melky Mesa: 0/3, 2 K (.274)
Luke Murton: 1/3, R, HR (16), RBI (.257) Another homerun. Killin’ it.
Jeff Farnham: 1/3, game winning RBI (.197)
Ryan Pope: 3 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, BB, 3 K (5.06 ERA)

High-A Tampa: W 11-10 vs Dunedin. W: Montgomery (5-1)

Ramon “Ray-Flo” Flores: 2/4, 2 R, SB (11) (.294) I really hope he finishes strong. If so, this will go down as his breakout season.
Slade Heathcott: 2/4, R, RBI (.239)
Rob “Seggy” Segedin: 3/4, R, 2 RBI (.298) Excited to see him in Double-A, whenever that happens.
Tyson Blaser: 3/4, R, 2B, RBI, K (.367)
Shane Greene: 2.1 IP, 7 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 6 BB, 3 K, HR (4.7 ERA) Damnit, he was doing so well since returning to High-A.
Kramer Sneed: 2 IP, 2 H, ER, BB, K (6.95 ERA)
Branden Pinder: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, BB, 2 K (3.92 ERA) Up and down season.
Mark “Monte Python” Montgomery: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 2 BB (1.47 ERA) (one intentional). Got the win.
Low-A Charleston: W 6-5 vs Greenville. W: Mahoney (1-0)

Mason Williams: 0/2, R, RBI, 3 BB, K, CS (9) (.304) Hasn’t hit a homerun since June 25th, the end of his three game streak. Shrug. He has five walks in seven games.
Ben Gamel: 1/5, R (.293)
Tyler Austin: 0/2, R, 3 BB, K (.320) He’s five for his last 31 (.161), but he also has 10 walks in his last 10 games, putting his OBP at .350 during that time. It’s obvious pitchers aren’t giving him much to hit at this level. This is good practice in patience, but since he is showing that he has that patience I think it’s high time he gets promoted.
Reymond Nunez: 3/5, R, 2B, 2 RBI, K (.288) 13 for his last 40 (.325). He’s really coming into his own this year as a 21 year old. If he can ever develop some power he may sneak up on people.
Gary Sanchez: 0/2, R, 2 BB, K, CS (4) (.297) I see a theme here with the walks. The big three here are all very patient hitters.
Dante Bichette Jr: 0/4, K, E (15) (.254)
Cito Culver: 0/3, R, BB, 2 K (.204) This year has been quite a struggle for him, looks like he’ll be repeating Low-A.
Brett Gerritse: 4.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K (5.02 ERA)
Phil Wetherell: 2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 2 K, HR (6.28 ERA) I wonder what is wrong with him.
Daniel Mahoney: 0.1 IP, zeros (4.46 ERA)

Short Season Staten Island: W 7-5 vs Aberdeen. W: Enns (2-0) S: Garrison (1)

Taylor Dugas: 1/3, 2 R, BB (.417) He’s on base every game. Looks like a good find thus far.
Jose “JoRo” Rosario: 2/5, R, HR (1), 4 RBI (.200) Nice game, look for him to break out.
Saxon Butler: 1/5, R, 2B, K (.373) How do you nickname a guy named Saxon?
Matt Snyder: 4/5, R, 2B, RBI (.143) He needed this game.
Fu-Lin Kuo: 1/4, RBI, BB (.440) May have figured something out this year at 21.
Exicardo Cayones: 1/5, SB (2) (.258) Came over in the Burnett deal. We’ll see if our system can fix this once highly touted prospect.
Claudio Custodio: 2/3, R, SB (1) (.143) Another one who needs to get it going. Last year’s GCL all-stars have started slow.
Danny Oh: “Oh” for 3, BB, K (.154) Hopefully he doesn’t become known as Danny Oh-for.
Tim Flight: 3 IP, 4 H, 3 R, ER, 3 BB, 3 K (5.79 ERA) The two unearned runs came from his own error, this is my unsympathetic face.
Dietrich Enns: 2 IP, H, ER, 4 BB, 2 K (1.13 ERA) Got his second win, boo walks, hooray strikeouts.
James Pazos: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 K (1.8 ERA) Like what I see so far from him, especially if he can turn out more outings like this with no walks (10 IP, 9 BB)
Connor Mullee: 1 IP, H, ER, BB, K (3.6 ERA) Good to see him back.
Tayler Garrison: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, K (4.05 ERA) Got his first professional save. Congrats!

GCL Yankees: W 11-2 vs GCL Blue Jays. W: Bello (2-0) S: Maher (2)

Christopher Breen: 3/4, 2 R, 2B, RBI (.500) He’s off to a great start for such a young kid.
Austin “Bubba” Jones: 3/5, 3 R, 2B (.340) 19 years old and looking very strong at this level, may see Staten Island before the year is done.
Ericson Leonora: 2/4, 2 R, BB, K (.326) Another 19 year old looking good so far.
Austin Aune: 1/3, R, 3 RBI, BB, K, E (2) (.235) They’re gonna give him a shot at short, but I see him in the outfield long term.
Miguel Andujar: 3/5, R, 2B, 2 RBI, K (.244) I’ve been surprised at the lack of production from him so far, hopefully that’s about to change.
Mikeson Oliberto: 2/5 (.350)
Jerison Lopez: 2/5, R, 2 RBI (.438) He’s been the surprise player of the year so far. Don’t think he was on anyone’s radar a month ago.
Corey Black: 1.1 IP, 2 H, ER, 2 BB (6.75 ERA)
Yoelo Bello: 1.2 IP, H, 0 ER (5.68 ERA)
William “Rookie” Davis: 3 IP, 3 H, ER, BB, 5 K (3.18 ERA). Apparently “dead arm” is rampant amongst these young pitchers this year, so they’re all being moved along slowly. That’s the story with Daniel Camarena too in case anyone was wondering why he hasn’t pitched yet. In limited action Rookie has been great though.
Joseph Maher: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 K (4.00 ERA) Lookin sharp Maher.
