Going a bit of a different direction with Around the Farm today...we're going to look at the entire weekend's slate of games rather than just yesterday. So settle in with your morning cup of coffee for an Around the Farm on steroids, or at least HGH as we look at three game's worth of stats instead of the usual one.
David Huff, SP-COL: 5 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 8 H, 2 K, 3 BB. Back-to-back rough outings for Huff, who's given up 8 ER in 11 1/3 IP in his last two starts. He's 3-2 with a 3.74 ERA for AAA Columbus, but has just 31 K in 45 2/3 IP.
Zach McAllister, SP-COL: W (4-2), 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 H, 7 K, BB. Another solid start for McAllister, who's really only had one bad outing for AAA Columbus this year. That came way back on April 15, when he gave up 5 ER in 6 IP in a loss to Louisville. Since then, he had given up 2 ER or less until Saturday, when he allowed 3. On the season in AAA, he's 4-2 with a 2.98 ERA, 47 K and 18 BB in 51 1/3 IP.
Chris Seddon, SP-COL: W (7-3), 7 2/3 IP, ER, 6 H, 7 K, BB. In Seddon's last 3 starts, he's allowed a total of 2 ER in a combined 21 innings of work, while striking out 19. He moved to 7-3 on the season with a 3.59 ERA, and has struck out 63 and walked 17 in 72 2/3 innings of work.
Cody Allen, RP-COL: W (2-2), IP, K. Allen meanwhile, has 23 K in just 18 2/3 AAA innings. Overall between Carolina, Akron and Columbus, he's carrying a 2.37 ERA and has 41 K against just 7 BB in 30 1/3 IP.
Chris Ray, RP-COL: 2 S (11), 2 IP, 2 K. It's good to have depth. Ray's emergence as a consistent arm in AAA is made all the more important when you hear that C.C. Lee is down for the season with TJ surgery.
Matt Langwell, RP-COL: 1 1/3 IP, 2 K, BB. Langwell has been effective in Columbus, but his K rate has taken a hit from what it was in Akron. He'd struck out 18 in 14 1/3 AA innings, but has just 8 K in 15 1/3 AAA IP.
Cord Phelps, 2B-COL: 4-11, HR (6), 2 2B, 3 RBI, 2 BB, 2 R. Big weekend for Phelps, who's now hit it 6 straight games for the Clippers. His season line is at .264/.341/.437 with 6 HR and 24 RBI.
Jared Goedert, RF-COL: 3-11, HR (7), 2B, RBI, 2 BB, 2 R, 2 K. Goedert just keeps on slugging. He now has 5 XBH in his last 6 games, including 3 HR. After a slow start in AAA Columbus, he's up to a .268/.315/.561 line in 22 International League games.
Tim Fedroff, LF-COL: 4-12, HR (1), 3 RBI, 2 R, 2 K. Fedroff with his 1st AAA homer this season, and is hitting .333/.313/.533 in 4 games since being called up from AA Akron.
T.J. House, SP-AKR: 8 IP, ER, 5 H, 3 K, 2 BB. The 22-year old southpaw from Mississippi has made 8 starts for the Aeros since being called up to the AA Eastern League. He's 4-1 with an outstanding 2.53 ERA, but his K rate has dropped off a little from where it was in high-A Carolina. He struck out 26 in 25 Carolina League innings and has 31 K in 46 1/3 AA innings. He's still putting up excellent numbers and is a very good prospect, but the ability to miss bats is crucial, so it's a stat to keep an eye on.
Gio Soto, SP-AKR: 4 1/3 IP, ER, 5 H, 4 K, 2 BB. Soto's last two starts have been solid, as he's gone 1-0 with a combined 9 2/3 innings, allowing 3 ER on 10 hits with 7 K and 6 BB.
Kyle Landis, RP-AKR: 2 IP, H, K. Landis made two appearances this weekend, running his scoreless innings streak to 8 2/3 consecutive.
Rob Bryson, RP-AKR: IP, 3 K, BB. Walking a guy is ok as long as you strike out the other three you face. In his last 10 appearances, Bryson has thrown 14 innings, striking out 16 and walking 15.
Kyle Bellows, 3B-AKR: 5-8, 3 2B, 5 RBI, BB, 2 R. Since getting off to a slow start in April, Bellows put up an .801 OPS in May and has a .701 OPS so far in June. He's got a Hannahan-level glove at 3B, so if he can maintain a .750 or better number, he's back on the prospect map.
Chun Chen, 1B-AKR: 4-12, 2 2B, RBI, BB, R, 4 K. I'm glad I'm not on a hunger strike until Chen hit a HR. It's not like he's putting up bad numbers, as he's hitting .313/.393/.425 on the season, but still has just the one home run. He has smoked 19 2B, which is tied for 2nd in the Eastern League. But the lack of HR is just plain strange, as he's shown good pop in the past and isn't being worn down behind the plate like in prior seasons.
Nick Weglarz, LF-AKR: 4-8, 2 HR (6), 2 2B, 3 RBI, 4 BB, 4 R, 4 K. Big weekend for Wegz, who is now 7 for his last 16 with 5 BB and 2 HR. On the season, he's at .237/.342/.422 with the 6 HR and 20 RBI, but he's struck out 52 times in 40 games, which is high for a guy repeating AA.
Mike Rayl, SP-CAR: W (4-6), 5 IP, ER, 2 K, 3 BB. Rayl moved to 4-6 with a 3.98 ERA on the season, but he's been unable to miss bats lately. After striking out 8 in 7 innings back on May 31, he has just 2 K in 10 IP here in the month of June.
Tyler Sturdevant, RP-CAR: 2 IP, K. Still healthy and on the bump, Sturdevant has now appeared in 3 games this season, throwing 4 innings without allowing a run.
Shawn Armstrong, RP-CAR: 2 IP, 2 H, K. Armstrong has been a pleasant surprise this season, recording one save and posting a 1.16 ERA in 31 Carolina League innings with 39 K and 15 BB.
Jose Flores, RP-CAR: S (10), 2 1/3 IP, H, 3 K. Flores now has 5 straight scoreless outings, and has a 2.10 ERA on the season. He's recorded 10 saves, struck out 29 and walked just 8 in 25 2/3 IP.
Kyle Blair, RP-CAR: W (4-1), 5 IP, 3 H, 2 K, 3 BB. Blair has made his last four appearances out of the bullpen, throwing 17 innings and allowing 10 earned runs. He's 4-1 in Carolina League play, but his peripherials are pretty bad; he's thrown 30 innings, has a 4.80 ERA, given up 25 hits and has walked more (18) than he's struck out (17).
Tyler Holt, CF-CAR: 4-14, R, 2 SB, 2 K. Holt has one hit in his last 5 games, and his season line is down to .279/.371/.361. His numbers are getting progressively worse as the season goes on, as he put in an .884 OPS in April, .739 in May and now just .422 so far in 11 June games.
Carlos Moncrief, RF-CAR: 3-14, HR (8), RBI, R, SB, 4 K. The 23-year old converted pitcher is hitting .241/.336/.447 with 8 HR, 30 RBI and 9 SB this year.
Ronny Rodriguez, SS-CAR: 3-12, HR (5), 2B, 2 RBI, BB, 2 R, 3 K.
Anthony Gallas, LF-CAR: 3-13, HR (4), RBI, 2 R, 3 K. The Kent State product had a decent weekend despite being distracted with his Golden Flashes performance in the NCAA Super Regionals.
Tyler Cannon, C-CAR: 3-8, 2 2B, RBI, R, K. Cannon is catching with Dwight Childs on the DL and Jake Lowery missing some time with what is hopefully a minor injury. He's hitting .357/.367/.607 in his last 10 games.
Felix Sterling, SP-LCC: W (3-5), 6 IP, 6 R (3 ER), 7 H, 2 K, 2 BB. Sterling has had a rough go of it lately, giving up 24 ER in his last 14 IP. His season ERA is all the way up to 5.72, with 47 K and 30 BB in 61 1/3 IP.
Elvis Araujo, SP-LCC: L (2-5), 2/3 IP, 6 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, K. It's almost tough to give up 6 runs while allowing 6 baserunners, but Araujo pulled off the "feat" in his start on Saturday. Still, he has a solid 3.88 ERA on the season, with 51 K and 25 BB in 60 1/3 IP.
Mason Radeke, RP-LCC: 4 1/3 IP, 2 H, 5 K. Radeke has been outstanding in his past two appearances, striking out 13 in 8 1/3 scoreless innings while walking one, allowing just 4 hits.
Cole Cook, RP-LCC: 3 IP, H. In Cook's last 10 appearances out of the bullpen, he's allowed 5 ER over 16 1/3 innings of work, striking out 12 and walking just 5.
Grant Sides, RP-LCC: IP, 3 K. A perfect inning for Sides, who now has 33 K in 29 1/3 IP for the Captains this season.
Francisco Lindor, SS-LCC: 4-10, BB, R, 2 K, CS. Lindor is hitting .278/.341/.400 with 4 HR, 22 RBI and 14 SB this season. All that plus stellar defense, and the fact that he's 18 years old...this kid is the real deal.
Luigi Rodriguez, CF-LCC: 5-14, 3 2B, RBI, 3 R, 3 K. Rodriguez has had an up-and-down season in 2012, putting up a .944 OPS in April, slumping to .538 in May, and now in 7 June games he's back up to .829. Overall, he's hitting .284/.335/.396 with 2 HR, 19 RBI and 12 SB.
Alex Lavisky, C-LCC: 3-11, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 BB, 2 R, 3 K. Lavisky's season line has improved to .244/.311/.364. Still not where it needs to be, but much better than where he was at last year at this time.
Todd Hankins, LF-LCC: 5-12, 2B, RBI, BB, 2 R, SB, 4 K. The Hammer with a solid weekend in LF, not his natural position. He's hitting .306/.350/.389 in his last 10 games for the Captains.
