Minor League Wrap 4.24.2011

Toledo 0, Louisville 9 (Reds)

Andy Oliver (LHP) gave up 5 ER in 4 2/3 IP to take the loss. Fu Te Ni (LHP) continued the poor Mud Hens’ pitching performance after giving up 4 ER in 1 2/3 IP. For anyone looking for a pitching
“silver lining” from this one, Matt Hoffman (LHP) threw 2 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, didn’t walk a batter, and K’ed 2.

Scott Sizemore (2B) went 1-2 with 2 BB. Ryan Strieby (1B) went 1 for 3.

Since Erie, Lakeland, and West Michigan were all off on 4/24, I’ll catch everyone up on some prospects enjoying a solid 2011.


Ben Guez (OF) – In 42 ABs, Guez is hitting .381 with a .440 OBP. He’s also hit 2 homers and driven in 9. 

Bryan Pounds (3B) – Pounds is hitting .314 in 51 Abs. He’s also getting on base at a .386 clip. If he can reduce his strike outs he’ll be in good shape (he’s been K’ed 14 times).

Jacob Turner (RHP) – In 3 starts, Turner has posted an ERA of 1.83 with 20 strikeouts and 3 walks. His WHIP is sub-1 at .081. This guy is going to be great.

Chance Ruffin (RHP) – In 5 appearances, Ruffin has pitched 3 1/3 innings. He has a 2.70 ERA and has K’ed 2 while walking 3.


Tony Plagman (1B) - .364/.425/.561 in 66 ABs over 17 games. He’s driven in 18 and hit 3 homers.

Gustavo Nunez (SS) – .338/.411/.569 in 65 ABs over 16 games. Nunez has only 2 RBIs from solo shot home runs. Notably, he has struck out as many times as he has walked (7 apiece).

Kenny Faulk (LHP) – Faulk has appeared in 8 games and thrown 8 2/3 innings. In less than 9 innings of work, he has struck out 15 and walked 1. His ERA through 2011 is 1.04.

West Michigan

Hernan Perez (SS) - .391/.481/.500 over 46 ABs and 13 games. Impressively, he’s walked 6 times and only struck out twice.

James Robbins (1B) – Hitting .333 and leading the team with 11 RBIs in 51 plate appearances. Strikeouts are a problem, 22 to 2 walks.

Robert Brantly (C) - .378/.452/.541 in 37 ABs over 10 games. He’s 2 RBI behind Robbins for the team lead.

Kevin Eichhorn (RHP) – Leads the team in strikeouts with 14 over 13 1/3 IP. Needs to lower his WHIP (1.75) and ERA (4.73).

Richard Zumaya (RHP) – Has not allowed a run in 6 2/3 innings of work over 3 games. Has K’ed 6 while walking 5.
