Twins Minor League Report (7/16): Transactions Galore

Typically, the full season minor league affiliates do not have games scheduled for the night of the All-Star game. However, the New Britain Rock Cats played the middle game of a three-game series at Harisburg. And earlier in the day, the Gulf Coast League Twins played a game.

The story of the day was that there were many minor league transactions throughout the system, and frankly, several more must be in the works. Here is what we have as this is written:
[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

  • LHP Edgar Ibarra has been promoted from New Britain to Rochester.
  • OF Evan Bigley, LHP Ryan O’Rourke and LHP Jose Gonzalez have been promoted to New Britain from Ft. Myers.
  • C Kyle Knudson went from New Britain to Ft. Myers.
  • OF JD Williams, 1B Dalton Hicks, LHP Steven Gruver and RHP Tyler Jones were promoted from Cedar Rapids to Ft. Myers.
  • C Jairo Rodriguez was sent back from Ft. Myers to Cedar Rapids.
  • RHP Dallas Gallant and RHP Tim Shibuya have been moved from Elizabethton to Cedar Rapids.

Here is a look at what happened in the two Twins games in the farm system on Tuesday:

GCL Twins 2, GCL Orioles 11

Box Score

Looking at the game score, and then finding out that Kohl Stewart made the start might give you pause. But, the Twins top pick threw three shutout innings. He gave up two hits and walked a batter but did not allow a run; he struck out two. In his two starts, he has now thrown six shutout innings.

Brandon Easton came on and gave up four runs on three hits and two walks in 1.1 innings. Miguel Gonzalez was next and he gave up five runs (2 earned) on three hits and two walks in 1.1 innings. He struck out one. Zach Hayden got the final out of the 6th inning after giving up one hit. Reyson Zoquiel gave up one run on two hits in his inning. He struck out two. Josh Guyer pitched one inning and gave up one run on a solo homer. He struck out two.

Although they scored just two runs, the GCL Twins hitters did combine for nine hits. Zach Larson went 2-5 with his fifth double. Engelb Vielma went 2-4 with a walk. Chad Christensen also doubled for the third point.
