  • I dropped Medina’s name in yesterday’s post when rotation-mate Ranger Suarez was the Pitcher of the Day. Between the two, they took the electric out of the WV Power bats amassing 20 strikeouts in 14 total innings. Medina picked up a career-high 10 K’s last night. The 20 year-old native out of the Dominican Republic had underwhelming stats last season for short-season Williamsport, but did post a 5-3 record with a 2.92 ERA. Though he’s a raw arm, there was a concern about whether his stuff could miss enough bats to reach a ceiling as a starter. That concern has been quelled so far, with his low 90’s heavy fastball with late action and a ferocious slider now averaging a K an inning. The #16 ranked Phillies prospect also possesses solid control with two very good breaking balls.
 
National League – Starters
LHP Jerry Keel (LoA Fort Wayne – San Diego) 23 years old
5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 2.76 ERA 
 
RHP Mike King (LoA Greensboro – Miami) 21 years old
6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 0.47 ERA
 
RHP Merandy Gonzalez (LoA Columbia – New York Mets) 21 years old
7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, Win 1-0, 0.00 ERA
  • The 2015 UTR Organizational All -Star has yet to surrender an earned run over 20.2 innings. Dating back to 2016, while at short-season Brooklyn, the righty has only allowed 4 ER over the last 47 innings, with only 8 walks and 54 strikeouts.
LHP Jose Paulino (LoA South Bend – Chicago) 22 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 BB, Win 1-0
 
LHP Cam Roegner (LoA Wisconsin – Milwaukee) 23 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, Win 1-0, 6.10 ERA
 
LHP Luiz Gohara (HiA Florida – Atlanta) 20 years old
7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, Win 2-0, 1.29
  • Gohara was the Mariners #3 ranked prospect and came to the Braves via the MallexSmith/Shae Simmons trade back in January. Now ranked #10 with Atlanta, the lefty should move quickly on his way to the new Sun Trust Park.
RHP Trevor Richards (HiA Jupiter – Miami) 23 years old
5.2 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, Win 2-1, 0.00 ERA
  • Miami may have struck gold in panning Richards from the Independent Leagues in 2015.
RHP Craig Schlitter (HiA Lancaster – Colorado) 24 years old
7 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, Win 2-0, 1.50 ERA

  • Burrows is once again the Pitcher of the Day. The 2016 UTR-Organizational All-Star appeared from his last start in April 16th when he threw five scoreless innings, picking up his first HiA win. Last night, the #3 ranked Tigers prospect matched his career-high with 8 K’s over 7 innings, his longest outing since turning pro.
