Threshers’ and Affiliates’ Recap – 6/10/2021

With Jersey Shore’s doubleheader, there were five games last night.  Clearwater beat the division-leading Tarpons behind a bevy of stolen bases.  Lehigh Valley lost but Didi Gregorius and Adam Haseley combined for 5 hits in 7 at bats.  Reading blew a 2-run lead in the ninth inning.  And, Jersey Shore split their doubleheader.


Clearwater (18-15) beat Tampa, 6-3.

Eduar Segovia pitched 1.2 no-hit innings but left with the bases loaded after walking in a run.  Maikel Garrido made his first appearance of the season and allowed an RBI single before getting the third out.  He went on to pitch pretty well.  He went 3.1 innings allowed 4 hits, no runs, no walks, and 4 strikeouts.  Victor Vargas pitched the final four innings allowing an unearned run on 2 hits and a walk.  He struck out four.

The Threshers fell behind in the second inning but immediately rallied to tie the game in the bottom of the inning on Juan Apaicio’s 2-run HR (2).  They pushed in front with a run in the third on Casey Martin’s RBI single.  They tacked on 3 more runs in the fourth on Johan Rojas’ RBI single and Casey Martin’s 2-run double.

Rojas went 2-4 with 2 runs scored, a double, and RBI.  Martin went 2-3 with a run scored, double, 3 RBI, and a walk.  Aparicio went 2-4 with a run scored, HR (2), and 2 RBI.

Baron Radcliff left the game after being hit on the helmet by a pitch.  It appeared to be a glancing blow, but concussion protocols were put into effect.

Yhoswar Garcia made his professional debut.  He batted leadoff and reached on an infield single.  He stole second and third.  He was hit by a pitch in his second at bat.  He walked in his third at bat and stole second and third.   The Threshers actually went stolen base happy.  In addition to Yhoswar’s 4 swipes, Luis Garcia, Casey Martin, and Johan Rojas also stole bases.  Martin was caught once.

The ABS was back in use tonight.

  1. It’s really tough at Reading, the pitchers can’t even make 8 runs stand up. Morales hasn’t had any good outings. Anyone seen him? Is there still reason to hope?
    Anyone have a guess why Falter pitched out of the pen for 1.1 innings? Getting him ready to be a pen arm in Philly? Or maybe just holding his innings down.
    Great to see Y Garcia leading off and stealing 4 bases in his first game. How does his speed compare to the other speedsters on that team? Lastly, I want to mention a guy I’ve never seen but whose stats are impressing me and that’s Aparicio. Is he a good catcher with a strong arm. We seem to have several good catching prospects.

  2. Look, I know that it is low A and it is only 1 game, but I can’t recall the last time a Phillies minor leaguer stole 4 bases in a game. I am sure that Quinn did it. But Quinn has 80 grade speed. So if Yhoswar has 70 or 80 speed then that is very exciting. I also loved seeing him take a walk in his first game. Will be fun to watch Clearwater boxes this summer.

    1. My guess….probably the last Phillie prospect to steal four bases in one game, you would have to go back 40 years exactly…Jeff Stone……stole 123 bases in134 games @ Spartanburg.
      Quinn did 3 stolen bases 4 times…he could have done it but as we all know he was hurt a lot.

      1. It is an impressive feat for sure. And the confidence to do it in your first career minor league game is also impressive. I did a double take when I saw that box last night. That is making a statement.

        1. Actually on that Thresher team….Rojas, Martin and Garcia may all have at least a 70 run tool….if Garcia has a 70 or higher run toll…then that is something to be hopeful on as yuo mention.

  3. Anyone have anything on progression of Jack Conley’s career so far? He played here at NC State and we are interested in his future.

  4. I am interested as to why Falter didn’t start yesterday’s game. Did he not feel good at the start of the game? If Falter is being moved to the bullpen, I’m assuming that he’s there to take Suarez’s old role as a lefty with length. But I hope this is only temporary, his best value is a starter and we need one if VV leaves.

    1. Doesn’t seem to be an explanation unless they were worried about rain. Tom Housenick, who covers them, said he was scheduled but they started Rosso. Falter started stretching in the 4th.

  5. Denny. Conley at AA. Was not getting time/AB’s because Marchan popping in and out.

    Milb Roster moves STRANGe

    Maybe Captain America helps youth movement. Atlanta, Dodgers players bring attitude, eagerness and fun to the game.

    DD and Joe want to right the ship, put Fun back on the Field accept $$$$$ Did not Work

  6. I understand the Game has changed. Everyone see the Power Arms of today and drool. But rushing Potential Big Arms, drool over a 19-21YO that has 16.43 era, can’t find strike zone but Meet Prospect Criteria, Has Potential is we’re are game has gone?

    The minor leaguer:
    Puts in the innings, handles the the ups and downs mentally, is overlooked by Bloggers, MLB and Baseball America because they don’t make headlines they Just hit, hustle, become a student of the game, and become a teammate, pitch to get outs and Love the Game. Not Big Noise or Potential.

    Louis Tiant
    Fernando
    Stroman
    Suarez
    Cueto
    All got outs, pitched effectively and not put in a category, Big Arm. They just got outs and no one was considered #1, because their style was different.

  7. Again tonite Yhoswar Garcia comes out of the gates fast…..a hit to center, and another SB and comes home on Rojas’ RBI hit.
    The guy is a human Energize Bunny.
