Weekly Prospect Report - 5/31/10

Written by Joe Lucia on .

This week, we had a no hitter, the debut of an uber prospect...and more! 2. Julio Teheran, Rome. Myrtle Beach Weekly: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K Season: 3-2, 1.03 ERA, 31 H, 2 HR, 14 BB, 59 K I'm ashamed he only struck out 2 men this week. But I find the fact that his ERA for the season can't even get you a pack of gum anymore...unreal. 3. Freddie Freeman, Gwinnett. Weekly: 2/14, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 K Season: .261/.309/.453, 21 R, 12 2B, 2 3B, 5 HR, 24 RBI, 23 K, 0/1 SB I think he's a little banged up...hasn't played since Friday. Disappointing to see that low OBP though. 4. Christian Bethancourt, Rome. Weekly: 4/16, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K Season: .235/.266/.315, 10 R, 5 2B, 2 HR, 13 RBI, 21 K, 1/1 SB Yeah, I probably overrated him based on raw potential...but I'll be damned if that raw potential isn't sexy as all hell. 5. Mike Minor, Mississippi. Weekly: 6 IP, 7 H, 7 ER, 1 HR, 2 BB, 8 K Season: 1-4, 4.20 ERA, 44 H, 5 HR, 26 BB, 80 K Not a great start this week for Minor, but its worth noting that he's got a 55:12 K:BB over his last 6 starts. Yeah, I'll take that 6. Cody Johnson, Mississippi. Weekly: 1/12, 7 K Season: .232/.304/.464, 20 R, 5 2B, 10 HR, 29 RBI, 67 K, 7/11 SB Yeah, Cody had a really bad week...though Mississippi did only play 4 games. 9. JJ Hoover, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 8 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K Season: 2-3, 3.58 ERA, 61 H, 2 HR, 13 BB, 41 K Yep, Hoover is here with a vengeance now. K:BB is now over 3 to 1 following those 8 shutout innings on Saturday. His FIP for the year is down to 2.89 as well...thank god we can quit worrying about Hoover. Over his last 4 starts: 27  IP, 17 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 23 K 11. Brett Oberholtzer, Rome. Myrtle Beach Weekly: 7 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 3 K Season: 2-5, 4.15 ERA, 71 H, 3 HR, 12 BB, 40 K I think he's gotten used to playing in Myrtle Beach, and you can expect more outings like this from him in the future. His FIP is a full run lower than his ERA...Oberholtzer has just gotten really bad luck with balls in play thusfar. It'll regress. 12. Randall Delgado, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 13 IP, 11 H, 4 ER, 0 BB, 16 K Season: 2-4, 2.62 ERA, 50 H, 3 HR, 12 BB, 72 K I swear, only in this organization can a pitcher strike out 16 and not walk one in a week, and see their ERA go up. Delgado is a stud. 13. Craig Kimbrel, Gwinnett. Weekly: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K Season: 1-0, 1.42 ERA, 9 H, 8 BB, 30 K Is this supposed to be helping him? I dunno. But his control issues don't seem to be much of an issue anymore. 15. Brett DeVall, Rome Weekly: 11 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 7 K Season: 2-2, 3.81 ERA, 28 H, 1 HR, 6 BB, 16 K His season his still young and as a result, stats can change in the blink of an eye. Only 4 hits in 11 innings is awesome, and as a result, 2 runs fell of his ERA. DeVall is coming along nicely. 16. Cory Gearrin, Gwinnett. Weekly: 4 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 2 HR, 1 BB, 2 K Season: 0-2, 4.21 ERA, 23 H, 3 HR, 16 BB, 22 K With a reliever, one bad game can FUBAR your stats. Gearrin had a *really* bad game Sunday. 17. Chris Masters, Rome. Weekly: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K Season: 1-3, 1.56 ERA, 31 H, 4 HR, 14 BB, 52 K Striking out a batter an inning, still. I started the Masters hype train last summer when he and Brett Oberholtzer ran right through the Appalachian League, and Masters is still pitching fantastically 10 appearances into the 2010 season. 18. Robinson Lopez, Rome. Weekly: 6 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 7 K Season: 2-2, 2.63 ERA, 28 H, 2 HR, 14 BB, 42 K Yeah, this was Lopez's worst outing of the season. And he still struck out 7 guys. Its a testament to how bad the defense is behind you when you allow 5 baserunners, no homers...and 4 of them score. 19. Lee Hyde, Mississippi. Weekly: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K Season: 2-1, 1.90 ERA, 22 H, 1 HR, 8 BB, 23 K Back to back outings with runs scored for Hyde...it was bound to happen sooner or later. Didn't get much work this week thanks to the monsoons in Mississippi. 20. Jose Ortegano, Myrtle Beach. Gwinnett Weekly: 5 2/3 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K Season: 4-4, 3.97 ERA, 54 H, 4 HR, 12 BB, 22 K Ortegano is so close to finally getting a K:BB of 2.0...its a long time coming, thats for sure. 22. Scott Diamond, Mississippi. Weekly: no stats accumulated Season: 2-3, 4.03 ERA, 57 H, 2 HR, 22 BB, 54 K He will start tonight, after having his start pushed back from Saturday due to rain over the weekend. 23. Tommy Palica, Mississippi. Weekly: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K Season: 3-1, 7.66 ERA, 28 H, 2 HR, 11 BB, 33 K Palica's FIP is 2.88. God bless shoddy defenses! 24. Brandon Hicks, Gwinnett Weekly: 7/22, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 4 K, 1/2 SB Season: .201/.282/.291, 13 R, 6 2B, 2 HR, 11 RBI, 33 K, 6/11 SB I think we can cut the cord on Brandon Hicks as a prospect...you really don't want to just reach the Mendoza line for the season at the end of May. Hello, Nate McLouth! 28. Jaye Chapman, Myrtle Beach. Mississippi Weekly: 2/3 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K Season: 0-2, 4.95 ERA, 20 H, 1 HR, 9 BB, 30 K Chapman's FIP is 2.20. I hate the M-Braves defense. 29. Todd Redmond, Gwinnett. Weekly: 9 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K Season: 4-5, 4.79 ERA, 54 H, 8 HR, 10 BB, 46 K Here's your no hitter. Unreal that of all guys, Todd Redmond would be the one to get it...oh well, Cory Rasmus threw one last year, so its not as if only the elite prospects are getting love. Redmond lowered his ERA by nearly a full run with that performance on Friday...his FIP is under 4.00, so he's just getting some crappy luck to go with his awesome control. 31. Jeff Lyman, Gwinnett. Weekly: 2 2/3 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K Season: 0-0, 4.44 ERA, 19 H, 1 HR, 18 BB, 16 K Good week for Lyman, albeit in only 2 outings. Like I said about Gearrin applys to Lyman...he had 2 bad outings last week that just kicked him in the teeth. 32. Matt Crim, Myrtle Beach. Weekly: 5 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 1 HR, 2 BB, 5 K Season: 2-3, 4.35 ERA, 56 H, 5 HR, 19 BB, 30 K Crim's ERA is nearly identical to his FIP. Can't blame luck for this one. He just doesn't strike enough men out. 33. Tyrelle Harris, Rome. Myrtle Beach. Rome. Myrtle Beach Weekly: no stats accumulated Season: 0-1, 3.98 ERA, 21 H, 0 HR, 10 BB, 27 K I hope he's not in the purgatory that Cole Rohrbough and Adam Milligan have vanished into 34. Cory Rasmus, Rome. Weekly: 11 IP, 11 H, 5 ER, 2 HR, 4 BB, 8 K Season: 2-3, 2.72 ERA, 37 H, 4 HR, 13 BB, 41 K Not the best week for Rasmus...but it gets the job done. FIP is 3.40, which I'll take any day. 35. David Hale, Rome. Weekly: 6 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, 4 BB, 7 K Season: 0-5, 6.95 ERA, 51 H, 1 HR, 15 BB, 25 K One fantastic appearance, one horrendous one. Ugh. 36. Ryne Reynoso, Gwinnett. Mississippi Weekly: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K Season: 0-6, 5.02 ERA, 56 H, 3 HR, 16 BB, 28 K One perfect inning, and thats all. Not a lot to see here, all. 37. Brett Butts, Mississippi. Weekly: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 K Season: 0-1, 1.52 ERA, 18 H, 6 BB, 28 K 2 straight appearances without strikeouts? Blasphemy. 38. Cory Harrilchak, Rome. Myrtle Beach. Rome Weekly: 12/27, 5 R, 2 2B, 1 3B, 4 RBI, 2 BB, 3 K, 3/5 SB Season: .261/.342/.345, 17 R, 8 2B, 3 3B, 14 RBI, 24 K, 10/18 SB Awesome hit streak from Harrilchak this week. He's coming along with great vengeance and furious anger. 39. Mycal Jones, Rome. Weekly: 10/26, 4 R,  4 2B, 4 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K, 1/2 SB Season: .244/.287/.363, 21 R, 11 2B, 3 HR, 26 RBI, 44 K, 5/8 SB This is more along the lines of what I expected from Jones this season. Good week MASH Unit. The following players are on the BravesHeart Top 40, and didn't accumulate any stats on the week for whatever reason. 7) Dimaster Delgado (disabled list) 8) Zeke Spruill (disabled list) 10) Adam Milligan (disabled list) 14) Cole Rohrbough (disabled list) 27) Gerardo Rodriguez (suspended) 30) Riann Spanjer-Furstenburg (disabled list) Others of note Jordan Schafer, Gwinnett Weekly: 6/26, 3 R, 2 2B, 1 3B, 2 BB, 6 K, 1/1 SB Season: .229/.306/.313, 12 R, 6 2B, 1 3B, 5 RBI, 21 K, 3/5 SB He's coming along well enough...his wrist is still healing, so he's not going to be kicking ass and taking names right off the reel. If this line stands comes July though, look out. Arodys Vizcaino, Rome Weekly: 8 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K Season: 7-3, 2.73 ERA, 54 H, 1 HR, 9 BB, 56 K He's gonna be top 5 next season, most likely. He's just been dominant this season for Rome. His FIP is 1.98. YOWZA! Edward Salcedo, DSL Weekly: 1/3, 1 BB Season: .333/.500/.333, 1 BB DSL season just started, so expect plenty of updates on Mr Salcedo in the future Hitter of the week: Mycal Jones, Rome Pitcher of the week: Todd Redmond, Gwinnett
