Alex Lavisky, DH-LCC: 2-4, HR (3), 2B
Now THAT’S what we’ve been waiting for! Lavisky with a big night at the plate, including his third HR of the season last night in a losing effort for the Captains. The overall numbers aren’t pretty, but he’s been on base in seven of his last ten games. On the season, he’s put up a .209/.264/.403 line with 3 HR and 13 RBI in 17 games. His 24/4 K/BB ratio is ugly, but will improve as he gets used to professional pitching. The jump from high school straight to low-A is significant, especially for a catcher. He’ll be fine long-term, and we will see plenty more nights like this in the days to come.
Lonnie Chisenhall, 3B-COL: 2-4, HR (2), 2B, 2 RBI, R, K
Just as important as the hits is who he got the hits off of. Chiz was 2-3 off of Braves lefty Mike Minor, a top prospect who has struck out more than a batter per inning in the minors and during his 40+ innings at the major league level, and was named IL pitcher of the week on Monday. Chiz is now 7-13 in his last 3 games, and with his recent success off of lefties to go along with an overall hot streak, there’s reason to think that he may have turned a corner in AAA.
Zach McAllister, SP-COL: W (4-0), 7 IP, 6 H, 6 K
Lost in the (deserved) hype that Alex White has been getting this year, the Zach Attack has been having a solid campaign for AAA Columbus. He’s 4-0 with a 3.38 ERA, and has 16 K and 4 BB in 24 IP. All four of his walks on the season came in one start, and he’s really pitched well in his past two outings. My guess was that he was going to get the call to Cleveland since he’s on the 40-man and was pitching well, but the Indians made the bold choice to go with White instead. Regardless, he’s a nice depth option at AAA who is still just 23 years old.
Jensen Lewis, RP-COL: IP, K, BB. He’s now being used as the setup man for Josh Judy.
Cord Phelps, SS-COL: 0-4, 3 K. I don’t give a shit. Free Cord Phelps.
T.J. MacFarland, SP-AKR: W (1-0), 5 IP, R (0 ER), 3 H, 5 K, 4 BB. The walks are a little out of character for T.J., but it’s great to see him pitch well and get his first AA victory. Now with 10 K in 9 1/3 AA innings, and a 3.25 GO/AO average.
Chun Chen, C-AKR: 1-3, HR (1), RBI, R. First HR of the season for last year’s breakout player. Still with a sub-.600 OPS.
Juan Diaz, SS-AKR: 3-6, HR (3), RBI, 2 R, K. Diaz was about the only Aero with a good offensive day yesterday, collecting hits in both games of the doubleheader.
Abner Abreu, CF-KIN: 2-3, HR (1), 2 RBI, R. Abreu is up to .263/.313/.408 on the season. Still needs to work on approach with a 23/5 K/BB ratio at the dish.
Tyler Holt, DH-KIN: 3-4, 3 1B. Another good night at the plate for Holt, who is hitting .342 in his last 10 games to raise his average to .292 overall.
Michael Goodnight, SP-LCC: 6 IP, 3 ER, 3 H, 5 K, 2 BB. Was in line for the W until the bullpen let him down. Sporting a 2.45 ERA on the season.
Jesus Aguilar, 1B-LCC: 2-3, HR (6), 2 RBI, BB, K. Another day, another HR for BBJA. Now slugging and even .600 on the year.
Tyler Cannon, 3B-LCC: 2-5, 2 2B, R. The 12th round pick last year out of UVA is having a solid season, sporting a .350/.414/.617 line so far for the Caps. He’s a little old for the level (23), so I’d like to see him repeat this success in Kinston before I get too excited.
