19 thoughts on “Threshers Recap – 7/5/2019

  1. Kerwin Pichardo on DSL Red must have an interesting back story. He was born in the Bronx, NY. He was signed, as a free agent, on 6/28/19; assigned to DSL Red on 6/29; and has played in 5 straight games starting on 7/1. He’s 17 yo and has played 2B and SS. In those 5 games he’s hit in all of them. He’s hitting .389/.522/.444 with a .966 OPS. He has 5 BBs and 1 K. Someone to watch… right now I’d sat so. 5 games is nothing but a tall tale to tell your kids a bunch of years from now but if we see more of the same… yaba daba doo!

  2. Yesterday I mentioned Hunter Hearn (Wmsprt) for having 3 OF assists in this early season. He now has 4 plus he knocked a 2 Run HR. Just giving him his 15 minutes of fame. I hope he extends it to 15 years of fame.

    1. Hunter…seems a lot of guys from Texas have that first name….will have to move pretty darn fast up the rungs. Turns 23 right after the season.
      Maybe he could get a promo to LKW in August, if he can rake for the next 3/4 weeks @ Williamsport. That will help.

  3. i attended the reading games last and have a few observations.

    bohm looked good. in game one he had two hits and his one out was a rocket caught by the ss. he made a nice fielding play with a man on third and 2 outs. he picked up a slow roller and deciding he could not get the hitter at first, threw home for a tag out and saved a run. he was hit-less in the other game but had decent at bats. he doesn t chase and he will hit to all fields. his double was to right and his single was through the third base hole to left. he did botch a ground ball in the second game. all in all on vsss he looks like a keeper. he appears very comfortable at this level.

    damon jones box score line looks great but he was very wild, running many 3 ball counts.
    he was 92-93 with a top of 95 and had several off speed pitches.they didn t hit him but he did stuggle. he also looks comfortable at this level. i would like to see him some night when he is more dialed in.

    parkinson was 89-90 and pitched well except for one pitch to ryan howard, who raked all night, a triple after he lost the strike zone, walked two and gave up a bunt single. those 3 runs were the game.

    swmbo suggested we leave after 4 hours of baseball so, we missed the richmond manager s meltdown and ejection over balls and strikes. it was apparently quite a display, including dumping a bag of balls on the field on his way out.

    looking forward to tonight and sunday. i would really like to see medina.

    1. Nick Williams is a guy who I think is a bigger candidate to have his skills decoded by another organization than Maikel Franco. Shame of it is his trade value is nominal.

    2. He’ll be traded at the deadline. Book it. Williams plus someone like Medina to get us a SP. he’s doing very well at AAA, restoring his value thankfully.

      1. 8mark – I never thought of it that way. I believe that Klentak is working on a big trade for a starter. My guess is that it’s nobody that has been rumored available. I would be shocked if he paid a high price for a rental though.

  4. I just noticed something very exciting in Damon Jones’s stats…in addition to his elite K rate, he also has an extremely high ground ball to fly ball ratio. That is really really encouraging. A combination of a high K rate and high GB rate is the perfect combination for a pitcher. He may be the real deal.

    1. That is a good metric combination and hope it can carry over to the MLB level.
      What also is a good sign is the fact he has remained at a reasonable, though, not great BB/9 rate for the last two years, bringing it down quite a bit from his college and short-season ball and LKW rates.

  5. Williams situation is tough.
    He’s too advanced for AAA
    But can only play corner OF so do you play him-over BRuce?
    He’s shown he doesn’t perform well in part time role and as LH hitter, can’t platoon with Bruce.
    On top of that, he has limited trade value and you’d hate to just give him away.
    I assume he goes somewhere to a rebuilding team that needs OF help ( giants?, Toronto?) for a bullpen piece

  6. There aren’t a lot of at-bats for Haseley or Williams with the big club right now. Franco probably bought himself a little more time with that recent outburst, plus Miller can play 3B.

    It’s not like Haseley can’t use the time in AAA either. He was only called up before due to injuries and now they have the option to leave him with LHV.

  7. Nick Williams is exactly who he is and nothing more. I can’t believe so many people here think there is still untapped potential there. He is too good for AAA but not good enough to start on a winning team. He is the kind of guy who should be playing every day for the Royals or Tigers. He will hit a homer now and then but will also strike out and not get on base at a very high clip. There is nothing wrong with that; he is a ML player and my bet is hell have a 3-5 year run as a starter some where. But stop getting excited over AAA statistics; we’ve seen him in the majors and know exactly what he is.

    Of course, there is a chance the Dodgers or Yankees pluck him and hes an all-star in 2020 because that seems to be what happens when they get anybody, but I’ll take my chances

  8. Israel Puello is quietly putting up a very good line in the DSL…again this morning with a plus start.
    And Miguel Tejeda Jr still struggling…..I was expecting that ‘son’ factor to shine.
