813Area has new update 20 hours ago Rays prospects and minor leagues: Franco shines in Charlotte debut
The best prospect in baseball reached base three times in his first Florida State League game. Over the last few days, a couple pitchers who were previously position players made their mound debuts. For Princeton, former outfielder Eleardo Cabrera struck out three and was charged with four unearned runs in 2 2?3 innings. In the Gulf Coast League, former first baseman Vincent Byrd walked four and was charged with four runs — two earned — in two-thirds of an inning. Triple-A Durham Bulls (48-29) Jose De Leon had his longest outing yet in Durham’s 5-1 win over Charlotte. The rehabbing righty lasted 4 1?3 scoreless innings, striking out seven and giving up a hit and three walks. The Knights tied the game at one in the seventh, but the Bulls scored four in the eighth, including Nate Lowe’s two-run homer. 2B Nick Solak: 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 K (.898)1B Nate Lowe: 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3 K (.886)DH Brendan McKay: 0-for-1, 1 BB, 1 HBP (.897 — left after HBP) RHP Jose De Leon: 4 1?3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 7 K Durham’s site offers this recap. Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (3-3) A big inning cost Montgomery in a 5-3 loss to Jacksonville. Through four innings, the Biscuits led 1-0, and the Jumbo Shrimp hardly threatened. But that changed in the fifth. They sent nine to the plate and piled up all five of their runs. After Ivan Pelaez opened with two scoreless innings, Josh Fleming allowed all five runs — three earned — in seven innings. 2B Taylor Walls: 1-for-4, 1 K, 1 SB (.500)RF Jesus Sanchez: 1-for-4 (.783)SS Lucius Fox: 0-for-3, 1 BB (.692) LHP Josh Fleming: 7 IP, 6 H, 5 R (3 ER), 1 BB, 6 K (3.87) Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (5-3) Michael Plassmeyer had another great outing in Charlotte’s 2-0 win over Fort Myers. For the fourth time since the All-Star break — and third time against the Miracle — the Stone Crabs shut out their opponent. Plassmeyer struck out six and didn’t walk anyone in seven scoreless innings. In his debut, Wander Franco reached base three times and stole a base. 2B Vidal Brujan: 1-for-4, 2 R, 1 K, 1 SB (.756)SS Wander Franco: 2-for-3, 1 BB, 1 SB, 1 CS (1.417)C Ronaldo Hernandez: 0-for-3, 1 BB, 1 K (.723)RF Moises Gomez: 0-for-4, 2 K (.671)LF Garrett Whitley: 0-for-2, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 SB (.732) LHP Michael Plassmeyer: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K (2.78) Charlotte’s site offers this recap. Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (3-2) Bowling Green improved to 1-0 in the post-Wander Franco era with a 5-2 win over Great Lakes. They trailed 2-0 before scoring five unanswered runs to close the game. Beau Brundage hit an RBI triple in the fifth to tie the game, and the Hot Rods went ahead later that inning on Ford Proctor’s sacrifice fly. Easton McGee struck out seven and allowed two runs in six innings. C Chris Betts: 1-for-2, 2 RBI, 1 BB (.770) RHP Easton McGee: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K (3.88)LHP Cristopher Sanchez: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K (2.34) Bowling Green’s site offers this recap. Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (6-5) Hudson Valley edged Staten Island, 7-6. The Renegades got most of their offense in their five-run second inning. Greg Jones started it with a bases-loaded walk, and Cristhian Pedroza and Hill Alexander each hit two-run singles. After the Yankees scored three straight late runs to tie the game, Jacson McGowan’s RBI double in the ninth provided the decisive run. Nathan Wiles allowed three runs in 1 2?3 innings, but Daiveyon Whittle was good in relief, striking out eight and allowing just a run in 5 1?3 innings. DH Greg Jones: 0-for-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 2 K (.635)RF Hill Alexander: 4-for-5, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K (1.015) RHP Nathan Wiles: 1 2?3 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 1 K (7.36)RHP Daiveyon Whittle: 5 1?3 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K (0.59) Rookie Princeton Rays (3-4) Princeton needed more offense in a 6-1 loss to Pulaski. The Rays hit just three singles and already trailed 4-0 when Luis Leon drove in their only run on an RBI groundout. Taj Bradley was charged with four runs in 3 2?3 innings. SS Jelfry Marte: 0-for-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K (.489) RHP Taj Bradley: 3 2?3 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 4 K (5.19) Rookie Gulf Coast League Rays (1-1) The GCL Rays held on for their first win of the season, a 6-5 decision over the GCL Red Sox. RBI hits from Daiwer Castellanos and Abiezel Ramirez in the fifth gave them a 4-0 lead, and Juan Garcia doubled in a pair in the sixth. In the eighth, the GCL Red Sox drew five of their nine walks to help score four runs. Evan McKendry started and pitched two scoreless innings in his pro debut, and Emilio Alfonzo worked five hitless frames in relief. 1B Jonathan Aranda: 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 K RHP Evan McKendry: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (0.00)RHP Emilio Alfonzo: 5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 3 K (0.00) CLICK HERE FOR ALL BOX SCORES Wednesday’s games (probables courtesy of milb.com) Durham vs. Norfolk 7:05 p.m. ET (MiLB.TV, radio stream)TBA vs. Luis Ortiz (2-6, 7.01) Montgomery vs. Jacksonville 7:35 p.m. ET (MiLB.TV, radio stream)Riley O’Brien (4-4, 3.42) vs. Daniel Castano (0-0, 1.98) Charlotte vs. Fort Myers 10 a.m. ET (radio stream)Joe Ryan (4-2, 2.00) vs. Edwar Colina (3-2, 3.51) Bowling Green vs. Great Lakes 7:35 p.m. ET (MiLB.TV, radio stream)TBA vs. TBA Hudson Valley @ Staten Island 7 p.m. ET (MiLB.TV, radio stream)Sam McWilliams (5-2, 2.00) vs. Cory Abbott (4-3, 3.50) Princeton vs. Pulaski 6:30 p.m. ET (radio stream)Matthew Peguero (0-0, 4.50) vs. Ken Waldichuk (0-0, -.--) GCL Rays @ GCL Pirates 12 p.m. ET *Listed as TBA on milb.com Scouting the opposition Norfolk Tides (Baltimore)28-48 (4th in IL South)Offense: 381 R (8th) .759 OPS (11th)Pitching: 5.59 ERA (14th) 1.53 WHIP (12th)Top-30 prospects: 3B Ryan Mountcastle (3), OF Austin Hays (4), LHP Keegan Akin (6), RHP Luis Ortiz (13) Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (Miami)4-2 (T-1st in SL South)Offense: 227 R (10th) .598 OPS (10th)Pitching: 3.34 ERA (4th) 1.18 WHIP (2nd)Top-30 prospects: RHP Sixto Sanchez (1), RHP Jorge Guzman (7), OF Brian Miller (14), RHP Robert Dugger (22), SS Joe Dunand (23), SS Bryson Brigman (26) Fort Myers Miracle (Minnesota)3-5Offense: 286 R (7th) .688 OPS (5th)Pitching: 3.15 ERA (3rd) 1.19 WHIP (1st)Top-30 prospects: SS Royce Lewis (1), OF Trevor Larnach (5), RHP Jhoan Duran (7), RHP Blayne Enlow (8), C Ryan Jeffers (9), IF Jose Miranda (13), OF Akil Baddoo (19), RHP Jordan Balazovic (20), 2B Michael Helman (27), OF Aaron Whitefield (28) Great Lakes Loons (Dodgers)3-2Offense: 385 R (1st) .733 OPS (1st)Pitching: 3.91 ERA (11th) 1.30 WHIP (10th)Top-30 prospects: 3B Miguel Vargas (21), RHP Zach Willeman (22), LHP Robinson Ortiz (23), LHP John Rooney (27), SS Jacob Amaya (30) Staten Island Yankees5-5 (T-2nd in NYPL McNamara)Offense: 43 R (6th) .601 OPS (10th)Pitching: 2.48 ERA (2nd) 0.84 WHIP (1st)Top-30 prospects: OF Everson Pereira (3), SS Oswald Peraza (17) Pulaski Yankees4-2 (1st in AL East)Offense: 37 R (3rd) .728 OPS (1st)Pitching: 4.05 ERA (5th) 1.50 WHIP (9th)Top-30 prospects: OF Antonio Cabello (8), OF Anthony Garcia (15), RHP Yoendrys Gomez (25) GCL Pirates1-1 (T-2nd in GCL South)Offense: Will update next seriesPitching: Will update next seriesTop-30 prospects: RHP Quinn Priester, OF Sammy Siani Daily news and links FanGraphs rolled out its July 2nd signing period preview.

813Area has new update 20 hours ago Quick Strikes: Lightning sign Nolan Foote to an ELC
Plus: Hockey Hall of Fame nominees! The Lightning -The Tampa Bay Lightning jumped in with both Feet(e) yesterday, signing Cal Foote’s brother Nolan Foote to an entry-level contract. Foote will almost certainly be spending next season in the WHL with the Kelowna Rockets. He’ll also turn 19 at the end of November which will mean that he will be eligible to play in the AHL in 2020-21 if he doesn’t make the jump straight to the NHL. Foote has size and an NHL shot. He also pairs that with high end hockey sense and a great compete level. He’ll need to work on his speed and skating technique to really make the jump to the NHL. (No, the puns aren’t getting old, and, no, they’re not going away.) Happy to have ya, @foote_nolan! ?? pic.twitter.com/msde98Ul1l— Tampa Bay Lightning (@TBLightning) June 25, 2019 -Foote is currently at the Lightning’s development camp, where he, along with other prospects like Jimmy Huntington, are working on their skills both on the ice and off: Starting off this year’s #BoltsDevCamp with street hockey at the Jeff & Penny Vinik Family Boys & Girls Club at Winston Park! pic.twitter.com/vJsNQ2cPvc— Tampa Bay Lightning (@TBLightning) June 25, 2019 All smiles here at @bgctampa pic.twitter.com/7lWEKHRy1q— Tampa Bay Lightning (@TBLightning) June 25, 2019 -Prospect Sammy Walker took some time out of his schedule to be profiled by Bryan Burns. Wherever he goes, it seems, success tends to follow Sammy Walker. The Lightning are hoping that trend continues whenever Walker’s ready to take the next step to the pro game. ”That jump to the professional level is a big jump,” he said. “I’m just kind of working on it at (Minnesota), just keep developing my game and getting stronger. Hopefully one day I can make that jump.” -Speaking of the prospects, Magnus Chrona is headed to university: Magnus Chrona (Skelleftea AIK U20) has committed to the University of Denver for 2019-2020. @DU_Hockey @skelleftea_aik— Hockey Commitments (@HockeyCommits) June 24, 2019 -The rumor mill has been churning up some interesting stuff recently, most notably that Joe Pavelski is supposedly speaking to the Lightning. Defending Big D did a nice profile on him that’s certainly one to note for those interested in learning more about the forward. At 34 years old, you would expect Father Time would have caught up to Joe Pavelski by now. But the San Jose Sharks captain has shown no signs of slowing down, scoring at a 70-point pace in all but two seasons in the last seven. -With JT Miller traded and Ryan Callahan on Long Term Injured Reserve, Tampa’s cap is still not exactly cut and dried. Geo did what he does best yesterday: breaking it down so we all can better understand it. The Lightning have given themselves some flexibility with the Miller trade and with Callahan’s LTIR situation. But in other ways, it has limited the team since to get the most out of Callahan’s LTIR and have the most flexibility, they can’t add any more players now and may need to replace a player or two with prospects. -Have you heard about the NHL’s Global Series?

The two of them cover a myriad of topics including what the Crunch might look like this fall and how the Tampa Bay Lightning could impact it, how Justin really feels about Ben Thomas, which players Justin is looking for a big year from (hint: Mitchell Stephens and Boris Katchouk are among them), when Alex is officially allowed to panic about the goaltending situation, and more! -Syracuse Crunch defenseman Cameron Gaunce was on Crunch Time with Lukas Favale recently, discussing his new contract with the organization. -Are you new to this whole AHL thing with the Crunch? Here’s a pretty thorough summary video of the organization’s history: -Time to make the donuts! We went behind the scenes at @DunkinCNY last night to get an insider look at how the are made.Thank you to @SanturriTom for hooking us up with a delicious tour. pic.twitter.com/N8yDEYMbcP— Syracuse Crunch (@SyracuseCrunch) June 25, 2019 The Others -The Hockey Hall of Fame released their 2019 Class yesterday, and it included Hayley Wickenheiser, among others! #HHOF Class of 2019: Guy Carbonneau, Vaclav Nedomansky, Hayley Wickenheiser, Sergei Zubov, Jim Rutherford (builder) and Jerry York (builder).— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) June 25, 2019 From The Ice Garden: There should be no question as to why she got in on her first year of eligibility. Wickenheiser is one of the most decorated hockey players ever. Her career spanned two decades, multiple leagues, multiple accolades, and multiple firsts. She played in the inaugural women’s Olympic hockey tournament and was first woman to ever play men’s professional hockey in Finland, in the third-tier Suomi-Sarja. She won four Olympic gold medals, one Olympic silver, seven World Championship golds, and six Worlds silvers. -The New York Rangers should be looking for some leadership come July 1, writes Kevin Power of Blue Shirt Banter. While things like “veteran leadership” is often overlooked, especially when a contending team cites it as an excuse for bringing in a legitimately bad player, a rebuilding team like the Rangers could benefit a player or two coming in and serving as a role model in the dressing room and a contributor on the ice. This offseason there are a few quality forwards that can not only fill that “veteran leadership” void but can also help solidify the bottom six of the roster. -The Washington Capitals announced the retirement of Brooks Orpik yesterday (Thread): Brooks Orpik is retiring, Capitals announce.
