Drew Pomeranz, SP-KIN: W (3-2), 7 IP, 3 H, 7 K, 2 BB
Pomeranz matched his career-high in innings last night when he pitched through the 7th in earning his 3rd win of the season. He lowered his league-leading ERA to 1.87, and now has 95 K in 77 innings for the K-Tribe. Along with future teammate Jason Kipnis, he’s scheduled to play for the U.S. team in the MLB Futures Game on Sunday, July 10 at 6pm on ESPN2 (set your DVR’s now, or in Mike Kramer’s case, your VCR). It’s pretty clear at this point that the Carolina League isn’t much of a challenge for Pomeranz, and I’d expect that he finally gets the call up to Akron after this weekend. He’s certainly earned it based on his production on the field, and if we expect him to go the Alex White route and contribute to the big league club less than two years after he’s drafted, he’s going to have to prove himself against better competition sooner rather than later.
Justin Germano, SP-COL: 6 IP, 2 H, 7 K. Germano got the spot start for Columbus last night, and was flat-out dominant. He’s now given up just 1 ER in his last 12 2/3 IP for the Clippers.
Zach Putnam, RP-COL: L (4-2), 1 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 4 H, 4 BB, 3 K. Uncharacteristically wild night for Putman, as the 4 BB represent a season high for him in a single appearance.
Jason Donald, SS-COL: 2-4, R, K. Donald snapped out of an 0-10 skid and is down tow .276/.360/.378 overall for the Clippers.
Joe Gardner, SP-AKR: L (5-6), 6 IP, 4 ER, 8 H, 2 BB, 6 K. After striking out 142 in 147 1/3 innings last year between Lake County and Kinston, Gardner’s K-rate has taken a tumble this year. He has just 49 in 75 1/3 AA innings.
Bryan Price, RP-AKR: 2 IP, 3 K, BB. In his last 17 innings of work, Price has given up just 2 ER and has struck out 14.
Tyler Cannon, 2B-AKR: 2-3, 2B, RBI. Successful AA debut for Cannon, as last year’s 12th round pick out of UVA has now played at 3 levels this season.
Rob Bryson, RP-KIN: IP, ER, H, K. Bryson gave up a rare HR last night for his only earned run in 11 1/3 innings with Kinston. He has 15 K and 3 BB for the K-Tribe, and should be in Akron soon.
Preston Guilmet, RP-KIN: S (21), IP, 2 K. Guilmet is now just 1 save behind Cory Burns for the organizational lead, a stat both of them are surely aware of.
Abner Abreu, RF-KIN: 2-4, HR (5), 3B, RBI, 2 R, 2 K. Abreu is 4-7 in his last 2 games, with all four of those hits going for extra bases (2B, 2 3B, HR).
Tyler Holt, CF-KIN: 2-4, K. Holt is 6-13 in his last 4 games with 2 BB, and is back to being the spark at the top of the Kinston lineup.
Alex Monsalve, C-LCC: 2-4, 2 K. Monsalve is 7-16 in his last 4 games with a HR and 2 RBI. The Midwest League All Star is at .277/.317/.394 on the season.
Bryson Myles, CF-MVS: 2-4, 2B, R, K, CS. Myles is putting up a .329/.413/.486 line for Mahoning Valley, and his CS last night was his first in 10 attempts on the year.
Jordan Smith, 3B-MVS: 2-3, RBI, BB, K. The Indians really may have found something here out of Division II St. Cloud State.
Elvis Araujo, SP-AZL: W (2-1), 5 IP, 2 H, 6 K, BB. The 19-year old from Venezuela has 19 K in 18 IP in the complex league, and has allowed just 3 earned runs.
