Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
W 9-4 @ Round Rock Express
Doug Mathis, SP: 6.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, SO
Donovan Solano has hit .387/.420/.565 in 16 games since returning from injury. It remains a small sample size, but converted to MLB statistics, he would be hitting .333/.363/.468. This far outstrips Derek Dietrich's .215/.275/.405.
Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
L 0-1 @ Mobile BayBears
Jacob Realmuto, C: 1-for-3, 3B, BB
Henderson Alvarez, SP: 7.2 IP, 2 H, 7 SO
Henderson Alvarez pitched another great rehab outing, setting the stage for his return to the majors. At just 23 years old, Alvarez is age appropriate for Triple-A. He has pitched 14.1 consecutive scoreless innings in Double-A.
High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
W 6-5 vs. Delmarva Shorebirds
Jesus Solorzano, CF: 0-for-4, 2 SO
Austin Brice, SP: 3.0 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 3 SO, HR
While Austin Brice's 4.05 ERA in June is an improvement on his disastrous April and May, he's still walking an unacceptable number of batters. He looks like a prospect that has completely derailed.
Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
Christian Yelich, CF: 2-for-5, 2 SO
K.J. Woods, DH: 2-for-4, 2 R, 2B, SO
Iramis Olivencia, 2B: 1-for-3, 3 R, 3B, 2 BB, 2 SO
Jorgan Cavanerio, SP: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 4 SO
The Marlins' fourth round pick this year, K.J. Woods, has looked great in his first taste of professional baseball. The 17-year-old has hit .409/.500/.500 in six weeks.
