Tigers Minor League Wrap – 4/30/07

Rochester 4 Toledo 1
Jack Hannahan and Mike Hessman each had 2 hits. Chris Shelton struggled going 0 for 4 with 3 K’s. Brent Clevlen doubled and walked. Yorman Bazardo took the loss on a fine effort. He was 2 outs shy of a complete game an it only took him 100 pitches as he allowed 3 runs on 8 hits, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts.

Erie – DNP

Sarasota 7 Lakeland 2
Justin Justice and Ryan Roberson each had 2 hits. Cameron Maybin doubled in 4 at-bats. Eleazar Aponte only lasted 4 innings before surrendering 4 runs on 9 hits, 2 walks, and 5 K’s.

West Michigan 6 Kane County 1
It was a balanced attack with every Whitecap batter picking up a hit and 6 of them having 2 hit games. Angel Castro allowed 1 run on 4 hits, 3 walks, and 3 strikeouts over 5 innings.

Minors News

The big news is the suspension of Lakeland Flying Tiger Sendy Vasquez. Vasquez will be out for 50 games for testing positive for a banned substance. Vasquez had a decent year for the Whitecaps in 2006 with a 2.97 ERA, but it’s hard to be a real prospect at age 24 in low A ball.

Also of note, former Tiger Rule 5 pick Matt Roney was also suspended. He had been pitching in AAA in the Blue Jays organization.

  1. I went to the Mud Hens game Sunday and left before all of the ninth inning fireworks. Anyway, I hate to be a downer, but I didn’t walk away impressed by any of the Tigers “prospects.”
    Santiago has a great glove, for sure. But he can’t hit at all. Clevlen looks terrible at the plate, too. Shelton looks like the same player a year as he was a year ago. He’s hitting okay for the Mud Hens, but I didn’t see anything that made me think he would do well with the Tigers.
    Hope Maybin and Miller make it up the chain soon!
