4/9/14 Daily Recap

Quality starting pitching for the Dash and Intimidators was the highlight of Wednesday’s White Sox minor league action.

Charlotte 1, Durham 8

Carlos Sanchez 0-3, R, BB
Josh Phegley 1-4, RBI, K
Matt Davidson 0-4, 2 K
Andre Rienzo 4 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
Ryan Kussmaul 2 IP, 3 K

Striking Out: The Knights seemingly have a strikeout total in the double digits every night. Tonight, the same problem appeared as they racked up another 14. The alarming strikeout rates of some of Knights’ starters are below:

Jordan Danks – 44%, 11Ks in 25 PAs
Matt Davidson – 34.4%, 10Ks in 29 PAs
Carlos Sanchez – 34.4%, 10Ks in 29 PAs
Josh Phegley – 28%, 7Ks, in 25 PAs
Jared Mitchell – 52.9%, 9Ks in 17 PAs

Jacksonville 7, Birmingham 4

Micah Johnson 1-4, R
Jaime Pedroza 1-3, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K
Trayce Thompson 1-3, R
Kevan Smith 2-4, 2B
Rangel Ravelo 0-3, BB, K
Keenyn Walker 0-3, K (.111 BA on the year)
Chris Beck 5 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, 0 K, 0 BB
Nestor Molina 1 IP, 2 H, 2 K

Winson-Salem 4, Salem 2

Jacob May 0-4, K
Tim Anderson 1-5, 2B, RBI, 2 K
Courtney Hawkins 1-4, 2B, RBI, BB, K
Keon Barnum 0-5, 2 K
Jason Coats 2-4, R, K
Adam Heisler 3-4, R, 2 3B, 2 RBI, K
Jeffrey Wendelken 6 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 K, 0 BB
Euclides Leyer 2 IP, H, BB, 3 K

Struggling Out of the Gate As you may know, the Dash lineup is cluttered with FutureSox top prospects at the top of their lineup (Anderson #5, Hawkins #6, Barnum #13, May #14). While Anderson and Hawkins have gotten off to nice starts, the latter two are struggling mightily. Barnum, a 2012 supplemental pick, has posted a .087/.192/.087 slash while striking out 11 times out of his 26 PA (42.7%). May, a 2013 3rd rounder, hasn’t done much better following a great 2013 campaign. May has posted a .080/.179/.120 line and has struck out 8 times in his 27 PA (29.6%). The bright side is the two of them barely have 50 PA between them.

Hickory 0, Kannapolis 1

Adam Engel 0-3, R, BB, K
Cleuluis Rondon 0-4 K
Danny Hayes 2-4, RBI, 2 K
Trey Michalczewski 1-3, BB, 2 K
James Dykstra 6.2 IP, 2 H, BB, 6 K
Jose Bautista 1.1 IP, H, 2 K
Jake Sanchez 1 IP, K

Older Guys, Lower Level, High Success
A handful of pitchers on the Intimidators have gotten off to encouraging starts this season. The one caveat: their age. Considering their respective ages at the low A level, these are some guys you should expect to move up the system if their success continues.

James Dyskstra (23) – 11.2 IP, 1.54 ERA, 8 H, 3 BB, 10 K
Jose Bautista (22) – 4.1 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 BB, 8 K
Jake Sanchez (24) – 4 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 8 K, 3 saves
Storm Throne (23) – 4 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 4 K
