14 thoughts on “Threshers Recap – 6/4/2019

  1. I see a Derek Escobar on DSL Red. He’s a 17 yo and leading off and what can I say after 3 games. So I won’t but the reason I mention him is because he’s from Cuba. Anybody know anything about him?

  2. Marchan quietly having a really nice season at the dish. Maybe time for Maton and Gamboa to switch places.

    1. DMAR….600 PAs….excellent peripherals of 9%-K and 7%-BB…with a very good slash of 301/.352/.365….at some point however, upstream, he may need to break out of the ‘Ben Revere mold’ of catchers and put a little lift in his life. When he gets that first professional baseball HR it will be time for celebration.

    2. Gamboa’s been doing much better of late so I doubt that happens unless he craters again. I don’t think they’re in a big hurry to get Maton to Reading. If he does it’ll probably be late in the season, playing some second base.

    1. His k/9 rate is terrific but needs to significantly improve his control. Needs a bigger sample size before a true judgement can be made..

  3. I see that Mickey Moniak has brought his average up to over .260. I am happy for him, but I really wish his BB/K splits were better. It is really hurting his OB%.

    1. Take out a bad April that much of the line-up had in April and Moniak’s bb/K rate is improved/improving. Starting May 1st, his walk rate is 4.6% and K Rate is 19.8% with an OB% of .336.

      If he can push that walk rate up another couple of percentage points he will be in a good place..

  4. I do not know what you are seeing. Gamboa last 3 games 2 for 12. His defensive approach is just going through the motion because the 40 man exception. No pressure no performance. His 9 game off then his 4 game production gave us so hope but twice I have witnessed
    non-chalant on defensive to help his team.
    Witnessed in person 6 games
    Oh. Players uniforms are ragged, torn and holes in legs/butts. OMG. Is this Little League/H.S Freshman Baseball. Minors deserve more.

    1. “His defensive approach is just going through the motion because the 40 man exception. ”

      If you’re going to make a stupid statement like this you better be able to prove it. This is a not site for irresponsible statements.

    1. Wawa….you may be rushing it a little…..at least let him get to 25 innings pitched in the SALLY!
      But absolutely he is raking so far.
