Miami Marlins Daily Minor League Report: June 30

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Danny Black collected four hits in Jacksonville's win over Pensacola, Jesus Solorzano earned a golden sombrero, and Trevor Williams made his debut in Batavia.

Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
L 1-5 @ Round Rock Express

Full Box Score

Kyle Jensen, DH: 1-for-4, 2 SO

Duane Below, SP: 6.2 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 SO

After allowing a run in the first, Duane Below recovered to throw five scoreless innings. With the game tied, he allowed the go-ahead run to score and left two more base-runners on. Jonathan Albaladejo was brought in, and surrendered a double to allow his inherited runners to score. What should have been a strong outing for Below went south very quickly.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
W 5-4 vs. Pensacola Blue Wahoos

Full Box Score

Danny Black, CF: 4-for-6, 2 R, SO

Sam Dyson, SP: 5.0 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 2 SO
Grant Dayton, RP: 2.0 IP, H, BB, 5 SO

It's often said that Double-A is the greatest test a prospect will face. The jump from high Class A to Double-A is the largest in the minors. So, far that wisdom has held true for Danny Black. After hitting .314/.375/.396 in Jupiter last year, he has hit a dismal .192/.293/.242 in Jacksonville this season.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
Game postponed

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
W 7-6 vs. Delmarva Shorebirds

Full Box Score

Jesus Solorzano, RF: 0-for-5, 4 SO

Mason Hope, SP: 5.1 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 SO

Mason Hope looked like he was turning around his season in May, posting a 3.62 ERA, but he has regressed back to walking a ton of batters, and his ERA in June rose to 4.70. One more start and he likely will surpass his innings total from last year, but with a significantly worse ERA and walk rate.

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
L 2-7 vs. State College Spikes

Full Box Score

Ryan Aper, CF: 1-for-3, 3B

Trevor Williams, SP: 3.0 IP, 3 H, R, ER, SO

The Marlins second round pick this year, Trevor Williams, made his short-season debut after one start in the Gulf Coast League. He has allowed two earned runs in five innings pitched, with two strikeouts and no walks.

Rookie: GCL Marlins
