Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Recap: July 26th 2015


The Toronto Blue Jays minor league system went 3-for-6 in games played on July 26th, 2015. A pair of Bisons had big games, a familiar face was back behind the plate for the D-Jays, and the Lugnuts got a quality start from an unlikely starter.

Buffalo Bisons: 11

Pawtucket: 10

Andrew Albers allowed 7 runs in his 2 innings. Todd Redmond was better, but not by much, as he allowed 3 runs over his 3 innings. Miguel Castro, Greg Burke (W 2-0), Gregory Infante, and Chad Jenkins (SV, 1) worked 4 innings of scoreless relief. In case you were wondering, that was not Jenkins’ first save ever. He actually has converted 3 out of 4 in his minor league career.

At the dish, Dalton Pompey (1/4) scored 3 runs, walking twice, and looks poised for a call-up. Matt Hague continued his MVP season with his 8th long ball and added two more singles for a 3-for-5 showing. He scored 3 runs, and drove in 5 RBI…..MVP. Alex Hassan, Andy Burns, Sean Ochinko, and Jonathan Diaz each kicked in 2-hit games. Andy Burns hit his 18 doubles and Diaz stole his 6th base.

Up Next: Daniel Norris (3-10, 4.10 ERA)

New Hampshire Fisher Cats: 2

Portland: 7

Casey Lawrence (L 10-9 4.53 ERA) was doing so good over his past couple starts, but laid an egg in this one. He was touched up for 5 run (4 ER), one walk, one K, and one HR on 10 hits in 5 IP. He did manage to induce 10 ground ball outs and only 2 fly ball outs, so that is encouraging. Luis Perez struggled in his 2 innings, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits. Dustin Antolin (2.82 ERA) pitched clean 8th, allowing one hit and striking out one.

The NH offence came from Mr. Fisher Cat himself, Ryan Schimpf (3/4), who hit his 12th long ball and drove in 3 RBI. Roemon Fields was 1-for-4 with an RBI.

Dunedin Blue Jays: 1

Charlotte: 2

Conner Greene is still looking for his first win as a D-Jay. He went 6 innins, giving up 3 hits, no walks and struck out 4. Greene did an excellent job of keeping the ball out the ground (10:2 GO:AO). All-Star Wil Browning coughed up the lead in the 9th inning and would loss the game in the 10th. Browning allowed 2 run on 3 hits in an inning and third.

Matt Dean (1/5) drove in Anthony Alford (1/4) in the top of the 1st for the D-Jays only run. Mitch Nay collected 2 hits, as he continues his second half surge. Nay is hitting .300 over his past 10 games, raising his BA 9pts. Even more impressive is his July .917 OPS, which deserves a solid attaboy.

Derrick Chung, who has been on the DL for most of the year, made his 2015 FSL debut after playing in 4 GCL games and got the start behind the plate, going 1-for-4. Good luck and finish strong.

Up Next: TBD

Lansing Lugnuts: 2

Dayton: 1

Conor Fisk (W, 2-2 5.06 ERA) allowed one run on 3 hits over seven and third innings. The 23-year-old lowered his ERA from 6.20 to 5.06 with his surprising start. Colton Turner, Carlos Ramirez, and Jose Fernandez (SV, 9) pitched 2.2 innings of shut out relief to preserve the Lugnuts 58th win of the year.

Chris Carlson and David Harris each collected 2 hits and both connected for doubles. Carlson hit his 18th double and scored a run. Jason Leblebijian continues to hit well with the D-Jays, as he drove in his 10th RBI in 10 games.  Lansing’s MVP Ryan McBroom was 1-for-3 with his 7th home run (solo shot) and league leading 64th RBI.

From yesterday’s game


last but not least..

UP Next: Starlyn Suriel (6-6 3.62 ERA)

Vancouver Canadians: 6

Everett: 2

Justin Atkinson (1/4) drove in 2 of his clubs 6 runs and now has 11 in his last 10 contests. Atkinson was helped out by Andrew Guillotte who hit two doubles and scored once. JC Cardenas had 2 hits, 2 runs, an RBI and a strike out. Ryan Hissey, PH Ryan Metzler, Carl Wise and James Lynch (2 runs scored) each collected one hit each.

Francisco Rios (W 2-4 4.73 ERA), native of Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico, pitched 5 innings without any walks and 4 strike outs. He allowed 2 runs to score, but left-handed reliever Micheal Kraft was credited with his 5th hold by pitching 1.1 IP of 3 hit relief. Bob Wheatley threw 2.2 innings of scoreless relief for his first save of 2015.

    Jacob Anderson, yes Jacob freaking Anderson, made his 2015 season debut going 1-for-4 with a double and 2 RBI. Anderson was a 1st round (comp pick) in 2011 and was very highly regarded, but struggled badly in 2012 and only played 3 games in 2014. I thought he was done, so if anyone knows what rock he crawled out from under, by all means, do tell. Gabriel Clark continued his strong showing with his 4th home run, which made it 2-0 in the first inning. Rodrigo Orozco (2/5, 2R and a triple) and Nick Sinay (2/4) were the only BBJ’s with multi-hit games.

    Tayler Saucedo had only allowed 2 runs in his first 18.1 IP, but allowed 5 (4 ER) in his 4IP. He allowed 8 hits, but still only walked one, struck out 5 and induce 6:0 GO:AO. Miguel Burgos struck out 4 as he followed with 3 innings of 2 run (1 ER), 4-hit relief. Tyler Burden finished things off with 2 innings of one run (0 ER), 2 strike-out relief.
