Weekly Prospect Report - 7/5/10 edition

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Haven't done one of these in awhile...hooray for extra work! 2. Julio Teheran, Rome. Myrtle Beach Weekly: 10 1/3 IP, 14 H, 10 ER, 3 HR, 5 BB, 9 K Season: 5-5, 2.13 ERA, 68 H, 5 HR, 22 BB, 103 K So Julio had a bad start. It was bound to happen. His numbers are still really silly. Gotta love this guy. 3. Freddie Freeman, Gwinnett. Weekly: 10/29, 7 R, 4 2B, 4 HR, 10 RBI, 2 BB, 5 K, 2/2 SB Season: .285/.347/.494, 36 R, 22 2B, 2 3B, 10 HR, 47 RBI, 43 K, 2/3 SB He's baaaaaaaaaaaaaack! We missed you Freddie. 4. Christian Bethancourt, Rome. Weekly: 1/11, 1 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 1/1 SB Season: .250/.276/.324, 18 R, 10 2B, 2 HR, 22 RBI, 28 K, 2/2 SB He is just not hitting this year. Expect to see him in Rome again next season. Still only 18. Chill out everyone. 5. Mike Minor, Mississippi Gwinnett. Weekly: 7 2/3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 9 K Season: 3-6, 3.80 ERA, 77 H, 8 HR, 37 BB, 118 K One hell of an AAA debut for Minor. He'll be ready next season...someone is getting traded, and it might be him at this point. 8. Zeke Spruill, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K Season: 0-1, 8.78 ERA, 1 HR, 2 BB, 9 K Spruill finally returns from his broken hand, and pitches an effective relief outing. I'm going to keep my eye on him in the second half. 9. JJ Hoover, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K Season: 5-5, 4.15 ERA, 91 H, 3 HR, 22 BB, 66 K Hoover's 3 start slide ends with a bang on Friday. I love this guy. 11. Brett Oberholtzer, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 5 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K Season: 2-5, 3.73 ERA, 84 H, 5 HR, 13 BB, 54 K He's apparently going to be working in relief now with the glut of starting pitching that Myrtle Beach has. A couple of great appearances for him this week. 4:1 K:BB...whew thats nice. 12. Randall Delgado, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 4 2/3 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 1 HR, 3 BB, 6 K Season: 2-6, 2.99 ERA, 78 H, 6 HR, 25 BB, 103 K I wonder when you promote Delgado to Mississippi to take someone's spot on that hideous team. 15. Brett DeVall, Rome Weekly: 5 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 7 K Season: 4-5, 3.92 ERA, 73 H, 2 HR, 18 BB, 38 K Wow, he is just not striking anyone out. Ugh. 16. Cory Gearrin, Gwinnett. Weekly: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K Season: 0-3, 3.61 ERA, 35 H, 3 HR, 24 BB, 39 K A couple of scoreless appearances for Gearrin. He's a solid enough reliever. 17. Chris Masters, Rome. Weekly: 4 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 K Season: 1-3, 2.61 ERA, 55 H, 6 HR, 24 BB, 66 K Rough start for Masters. You'll run into those every so often. Still a great young prospect. 18. Robinson Lopez, Rome. Weekly: 12 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 4 BB, 7 K Season: 3-5, 3.48 ERA, 58 H, 3 HR, 29 BB, 61 K Average pair of starts. Nothing special. 19. Lee Hyde, Mississippi. Weekly: 2/3 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K Season: 2-3, 3.03 ERA, 38 H, 1 HR, 11 BB, 32 K Hyde will not be eligible for the next list I do, as he's 25. Shame that he's kinda stalling out here in Mississippi purgatory. 20. Jose Ortegano, Myrtle Beach. Gwinnett Weekly: 5 1/3 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 9 K Season: 4-8, 5.02 ERA, 93 H, 6 HR, 28 BB, 51 K Holy strikeouts Jose! Maybe he's got some use after all. Ortegano is still only 22, and he's pitching...I dunno, a little below average in AAA. Thats actually kinda impressive in my mind. 22. Scott Diamond, Mississippi. Weekly: 7 2/3 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K Season: 3-6, 3.68 ERA, 107 H, 4 HR, 38 BB, 84 K God he's allowing a lot of hits. How much of that is due to Mississippi's defense, and how much of that is due to Diamond's stuff? I'd blame the defense that we know is shoddy. 23. Tommy Palica, Mississippi. Myrtle Beach Weekly: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K Season: 3-1, 6.88 ERA, 40 H, 2 HR, 16 BB, 47 K I don't know why he got sent down. It doesn't make any sense to me. But whatever. 25. Tyler Stovall, Danville. Weekly: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K Season: 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 H, 3 BB, 7 K Stovall has been switched to a relief role, and he's been dominant in his 5 innings of work thusfar this season. 28. Jaye Chapman, Myrtle Beach. Mississippi Weekly: 3 1/3 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K Season: 1-3, 5.20 ERA, 42 H, 1 HR, 16 BB, 49 K Why yes Joe, a guy with a 3:1 K:BB and 1 homer allowed on the year should have an ERA above 5.00! 29. Todd Redmond, Gwinnett. Weekly: 13 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 1 HR, 3 BB, 10 K Season: 8-7, 3.92 ERA, 93 H, 13 HR, 20 BB, 83 K His control is impeccable. A 4:1 K:BB ratio is nothing to sneeze at. Could be a trade option in the coming weeks. 30. Riaan Spanjer-Furstenburg, Rome. Weekly: 10/26, 2 R, 2 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K Season: .333/.408/.460, 6 R, 6 2B, 1 3B, 7 RBI, 7 BB, 9 K, 0/1 SB Welcome back RSF. We missed you. 32. Matt Crim, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 10 IP, 15 H, 11 ER, 1 HR, 7 BB, 6 K Season: 4-8, 4.87 ERA, 105 H, 10 HR, 35 BB, 55 K He's destined to be thrown in the bullpen by the end of the month. He's just not that good. 33. Tyrelle Harris, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K Season: 0-1, 4.05 ERA, 26 H, 0 HR, 13 BB, 35 K He still hasn't allowed a homer in his injury-laden professional career. Impressive. 34. Cory Rasmus, Rome. Weekly: 10 2/3 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 1 HR, 6 BB, 11 K Season: 5-4, 3.15 ERA, 56 H, 6 HR, 22 BB, 58 K Another bad start for a Brave this week. Oh bother. 35. David Hale, Rome. Weekly: 5 2/3 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 7 K Season: 2-7, 5.98 ERA, 65 H, 1 HR, 23 BB, 42 K Hale was effective. Imagine that. 36. Ryne Reynoso, Gwinnett. Mississippi. Gwinnett. Weekly: 9 1/3 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 5 BB, 11 K Season: 2-7, 4.95 ERA, 77 H, 5 HR, 26 BB, 51 K Stop the presses people: the K:BB ratio is up to 2:1. 38. Cory Harrilchak, Rome. Myrtle Beach. Rome Weekly: 8/27, 2 R, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 6 K, 1/1 SB Season: .289/.356/.367, 80 R, 14 2B, 3 3B, 1 HR, 28 RBI, 37 K, 19/31 SB He's got no power. Patience is...I dunno, adequate? Not looking too hot. 39. Mycal Jones, Rome. Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 8/27, 4 R, 4 2B, 2 RBI, 4 BB, 4 K, 1/3 SB Season: .285/.324/.431, 41 R, 21 2B, 7 HR, 37 RBI, 65 K, 13/19 SB Jones has cooled since his promotion, but is still hitting the ball pretty well. He's looking like a nice middle infield prospect at this point. 40. Caleb Brewer, Rome. Weekly: 3 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 1 K Season: 2-1, 2.92 ERA, 22 H, 1 HR, 13 BB, 11 K More walks than strikeouts still...getting a little scared. MASH Unit. The following players are on the BravesHeart Top 40, and didn’t accumulate any stats on the week for whatever reason. 6) Cody Johnson (disabled list) 7) Dimaster Delgado (disabled list) 10) Adam Milligan (disabled list) 14) Cole Rohrbough (disabled list) 27) Gerardo Rodriguez (suspended) 37) Brett Butts (disabled list) Others of note Jordan Schafer, Gwinnett. Weekly: 2/20, 5 K, 2/4 SB Season: .220/.286/.288, 22 R, 8 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 47 K, 11/18 SB What in the hell is going on here?! Matt Young, Gwinnett. Weekly: 9/29, 5 R, 4 RBI, 5 BB, 7 K, 3/3 SB Season: .306/.370/.426, 46 R, 22 2B, 3 3B, 2 HR, 32 K, 16/19 SB The miracle run of Matt Young continues. He's doing what Schafer SHOULD be doing. Brandon Beachy, Mississippi. Weekly: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K Season: 2-1, 1.29 ERA, 41 H, 1 HR, 19 BB, 67 K This guy is unbelievable. Breakout star of 2010 by far in the organization. He's allowed 2 runs in 18 innings since becoming a starter, while walking 5 and striking out 20. Awesome. Luis Sumoza, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 7/22, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 3B, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 4 K, 2/4 SB Season: .238/.288/.300, 8 R, 4 2B, 2 3B, 39 K, 3/6 SB This guy was a touted prospect coming into the year. I never bought into the hype. I feel kinda smart right about now. Edward Salcedo, DSL Rome. Weekly: 2/10, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 2 K Season: .286/.429/.417, 17 R, 6 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 12 RBI, 21 K, 8/9 SB His dominance in the DSL led to a promotion to Rome for his American debut. They're not screwing around with Salcedo. Carlos Perez, Danville. Weekly: 7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K Season: 1-0, 0.53 ERA, 10 H, 9 BB, 16 K Peter over at Capitol Avenue Club has been pimping Perez hard over Twitter. After this start, I can see why. He's only 18. Keep your eye on this kid. Fernando De Los Santos, GCL. Weekly: 8/14, 6 R, 4 2B, 3 RBI, 2 BB, 3 K, 1/1 SB Season: .400/.483/.560, 7 R, 4 2B, 3 RBI, 5 K, 2/2 SB He struggled in the GCL last season as a 19 year old. He's thriving as a 20 year old. Matt Lipka, GCL. Weekly: 9/20, 3 R, 2 2B, 3 RBI, 3 BB, 0 K, 1/2 SB Season: .300/.378/.375, 5 R, 3 2B, 5 RBI, 3 K, 2/3 SB Sure its a very small sample size, but the Braves first pick in this year's draft is having a nice time in the GCL thusfar, despite a total lack of power. Aris Alcantara, DSL. Weekly: 7/12, 4 R, 3 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 4 BB, 1 K Season: .311/.431/.456, 12 R, 9 2B, 2 3B, 18 RBI, 16 K, 1/3 SB He's 20, so he's really advanced for the DSL, and I can see him getting promoted to the States sooner rather than later...but man is he impressive so far. Abraham Espinosa, DSL. Weekly: 9 IP, 14 H, 5 ER, 1 HR, 1 BB, 3 K Season: 2-0, 2.01 ERA, 27 H, 1 HR, 1 BB, 21 K 1 walk in 31 1/3 IP. Shades of Chris Masters from last year. This kid is only 17. Frightening. Hitter of the week: Fernando De Los Santos Pitcher of the week: Carlos Perez We'll end it with that. See you guys next week with another look at the prospects. Game Recap will be coming in 2 or 3 hours.
