Tigers Minor League Wrap – July 11th

This is the easiest one of the year, only the GCL is playing…

GCL Tigers 6, GCL Braves 5
Luis Arlet hit 2 homers in 4 at bats. Gorkys Hernandez seems to be slowing a little bit with back to back 1 for 4 nights. Audy Ciriaco continues to struggle with an 0 for 4, 2 K night. Matthew Righter allowed 2 runs, 1 earned, in 5 innings. Paul Hammond pitched 3 2/3 innings of relief. He didn’t allow a baserunner and fanned 3.

    I go to U of M and saw Hammond pitch a number of times this year. It’s good to see him pitching so well to start off in pro ball. Though after pitching in the Big 10 for 4 years and making the All Big 10 first team this year, I would have thought the Tigers would start him at A ball at least. Hopefully, this initial stretch of scoreless (knock on wood) dominance will prove that he belongs at a higher level.
