Twins Minor League Report (6/6): Thursday Night Lights

Well the big news of the day, of course, was the Twins selecting pitcher Kohl Stewart with the 4th overall pick in the amateur draft. Not surprisingly, all the MiLB experts at TwinsDaily are providing great draft coverage, so I'm pinch-hitting and piecing together the daily minor league report. Here's hoping that, in the coming couple years, we see Stewart's name popping up very often in this nightly report!

It's fun to think about a rotation in, say, 2015 or 2016 that could feature Alex Meyer, Trevor May, Stewart, Kyle Gibson, and even Alex Wimmers. From where this organization was just a year ago (prospect-wise), it's tough not to be at least a little optimistic. Now to tonight's action:[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]


Unlike in his previous start, Vance Worley was not very effective today. He lasted 3 innings and gave up 7 runs, but only 2 were earned. The big problem: he allowed 8 hits, including a home run, struck out 2 and walked 1. Blake Martin tossed 2 scoreless innings, before Anthony Slama came in and allowed 3 runs in 2 innings on 5 walks and a hit. Virgil Vasquez threw the final frame, allowing a run on 3 hits.

The Red Wings had 10 hits tonight, just not enough runs. Eric Farris, Deibinson Romero and Brian Dinkelman all had 2 hits, and Oswaldo Arcia, Dan Rohlfing, Doug Bernier and Ray Olmedo each had 1 hit. Bernier tripled, and Romero doubled, incidentally.

Here's the link to the box score.


Trevor May pitched well tonight. He went 6 innings and allowed only 1 run on 5 hits. The best part, though, is the 6 Ks and 2 walks. It's important that he limits the walks. AJ Achter tossed a scoreless 7th, before Cole Johnson ran into trouble in the 8th, allowing 3 runs on 2 hits and a walk. Daniel Turpen pitched a scoreless 9th.

The Rock Cats only amassed 5 hits tonight, but they made them count. TwinsDaily contributor, nice guy, and occasional pro ballplayer Adam Pettersen was 1-for-3 with a double, 2 RBIs and 2 walks. Danny Santana had a double and 2 RBIs in 5 at-bats. Nate Hanson, Daniel Ortiz and Kyle Knudson also had hits tonight.

Here's the linkto the box score.


There was a rumor floating around that Brevard County forfeited both games of this doubleheader because Miguel Sano is just too damn good, but apparently there was bad weather.


Well we learned that J.R. Berrios is human. Tonight, anyway. The young righty lasted only 3 and 1/3 innings, allowing 9 runs (6 earned) on 5 hits. He struck out 6, which is good, but walked 4, and also allowed a home run. But the home run was to last season's #1 overall pick Carlos Correa. Josue Montanez threw 2 and 2/3 scoreless innings, walking 2, striking out 1 and allowing 1 hit. Tyler Jones tossed 3 scoreless innings, striking out 3 and walking 2. A nice performance for him out of the bullpen.

There just wasn't enough Kernels offense tonight. Dalton Hicks did his best, blasting 2 solo home runs, giving him 9 on the season. Travis Harrison and JD Williams doubled (Williams also had 2 singles and 2 RBIs). Candido Pimentel singled, and Jhonatan Arias had 2 hits. Jeremias Pineda tripled and scored a run, as well. Pimentel had a rough night in the field, committing 3 fielding errors.

Here's the link to the box score.

All 4 teams are back in action tomorrow night.
