Box Score Recap – 7/5/2014

Lehigh Valley outlasted Rochester. Maikel Franco had three hits including a double and a home run, (albeit in 8 ABs over 16 innings). Russ Canzler hit two homers. Cam Perkins 1-7 – he’s really scuffling. Kelly Dugan 2-4 for Reading, and MAG allowed one hit and walked one while striking out four over 2 scoreless innings. Carlos Tocci and Mitch Walding both had two doubles, while Dylan Cozens had two steals for Lakewood. Cozens has 15 on the year. Not bad for a monstrously large human being.

Aaron Brown and Emmanuel Marrero with multi-hit games in support of a good start for Alejandro Arteaga in Williamsport. The GCL squad walked seven times versus Yankees pitching, though they managed just four hits. Denton Keys worked four scoreless innings after Jeff Manship worked the first as the opening test of his rehab assignment.

    1. Hope so. SSS. Maybe sitting him a few games helped. I was a big proponent of sitting him or moving him down the order to give him a new perspective. Don’t agree with others on site that you have to maximize his AB’s regardless of outcome. There is no substitute for confidence.

      1. And confidence just magically appears out of thin air? There is no substitute for experience, for ABs, and for learning how big league pitchers will approach and adjust to you as a hitter. Confidence comes from practice, repetition, experience, and ability. How does limiting a guy’s ABs imbue confidence?

        1. Confidence comes from successful performance and nothing else. You can practice all you want and stink. You can repeat something until you are blue in the face and stink. You can have all the ability in the world but if you don’t perform with it you can still stink. You can have a ton of experience but if it’s not successful experiences then guess what? You can stink. When you stink, your confidence stinks as well.

            1. Not for the expressed intent of arbitrarily reducing the total number of his ABs on the season against live pitching…

  1. It would be great if Kelly Dugan could stay on the field. The kids can flat out hit. An article on phillies.com mentioned that Joseph and Galvis should start playing this week.

    1. I’m all in favor of giving Dugan a look come September if he can stay healthy and be productive until that time.

      1. The BB rate certainly appears to have rebounded to normal levels this season, making his AA numbers last year look like an abnormality. He looks the part of a big league regular, but I’d guess 2015 is more likely for an audition, considering he’s never seen a pitch above AA.

          1. I wouldn’t necessarily consider Altherr’s callups this season tryouts. If they felt he was truly ready, wouldn’t he be in LHV by now?

  2. Cozens has 15 steals to go along with double digit homers. It’s ashame he can’t get that avg. up. Otherwise, we’d prob be looking at a really legit prospect if he could stay in OF.
    Speaking of improving. How about 3 walks for Pullin? His avg is over 270. He may be most improved player in system even though the stats don’t jump out at you.

    1. Cozens’ splits are really odd:
      AVG AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB IBB SO
      vs Left .263 80 5 21 4 1 1 9 6 1 24
      vs Right .218 239 37 52 12 2 10 26 22 2 67

      Had a talk with Andy Tracy about Dylan last week, and he said people are finally starting to pitch him like he’s a guy that’s 6-5, 240 … Which I assume means he’s seeing nothing but breaking balls. Tracy didn’t seem concerned because he said this was a good learning period for Cozens because this is the kind of pitching he’s continually going to see as he climbs the ladder. I don’t know what to make of all that just yet, but I trust Andy, he’s always been a pretty straight shooter with me. So if he’s not too concerned, then I tend not to be either.

  3. i was at the reading game last night. alherrr was robbed of hits twice and looked good at the plate andvey smooth in the field, as did dugan. both could make big league outfielders in the next few years. i wasn’t paying attention and didn’ t realize it was the cuban gonzales who was pitching but he caught my attention because he was clearly several notches better than the previous pitchers. he was at 94-95, with an effective change and breaking pitch. when i realized who it was, i was happy because he looked so good.the bad news is he was down to 90-91 at the end of his second inning, so the reports of his stuff falling off quickly seem to be true

  4. i was at the reading game last night. alherrr was robbed of hits twice and looked good at the plate and very smooth in the field, as did dugan. both could make big league outfielders in the next few years. i wasn’t paying attention and didn’ t realize it was the cuban gonzales who was pitching but he caught my attention because he was clearly several notches better than the previous pitchers. he was at 94-95, with an effective change and breaking pitch. when i realized who it was, i was happy because he looked so good.the bad news is he was down to 90-91 at the end of his second inning, so the reports of his stuff falling off quickly seem to be true

    1. It’s good to see the velo. up for Gonzalez but it looks like he’s destined for the pen with those splits. Dsnt mean its a bad thing but realistically that’s what the team is probably looking at

  5. MAG hasn’t pitched much in the past few years so it could take time to build up stamina.

    Severino is pitching well today- 1 h 1 bb 6k through 5ip.

  6. Lee rehab was cut short after 2 ings by rain,said he felt fine.Z green 3 for 4 3 rbi’s. Cozens doubled and threw a man out a home.Rois another strong outing.

  7. Tomscha’s got a raw deal right now. GCL pitching is child’s play for him, but there’s really nowhere for him to go, unless the team wants to double jump him AND bump Walding.

    1. Walding is more dumpable than bumpable. Repeating Lakewood with significantly worse stats, Hand he didn’t have good stats in 2013. He put up a .634 OPS at Williamsport in 2012 and it’s been downhill since then. The thought when he was drafted was big kid, lot’s of power, but he’s got 3 HR in close to 900 AB. The only saving grace on offense is that he walks a heck of a lot, but a .222 career BA isn’t going to get it done.

  8. My friend is a scout. He gives me info when it’s close to happening. This why I’m saying only pap , Lee, Byrd, Mayberry will go. Maybe Burnette or Kk not the hole rotation.
