  • Twins Minor League Report (8/15): One Game Wonder in the Dominican


    Ted Schwerzler

    With the Florida Complex League action being rained out today, the only affiliate in action was the Minnesota Twins Dominican Summer League team. Ronald Acuna Jr.’s brother got in on the action, and there were more notable performances from the plate than the mound.

    COMPLEX CHRONICLES
    Postponed (Rain)

    The Twins Florida Complex League team was set to square off against the Braves but inclement weather washed away this contest. It will be made up tomorrow. Randy Dobnak was scheduled to make a rehab appearance. Maybe it happens tomorrow.

    DOMINICAN DAILIES
    DSL Nationals 12, DSL Twins 8
    Box Score

    Oscar Paredes got the start for the DSL Twins today and worked three innings while allowing two runs on four hits. He walked just one while striking out two.

    The Twins jumped out to the early lead when an Anderson Nova single drove in Denyerbe Gervis in the 1st inning. The lead was then doubled up in the 2nd inning after Isaac Pena broke for the plate and successfully stole home.

    After the lead was wiped away in the bottom half, the Twins answered with Jose Rodriguez putting a ball in play to score Gervis from third base. Up 3-2, the Twins then doubled their lead again in the 4th inning. Pena ripped his third triple of the season, then scored on a throwing error. Bryan Acuna singled to plate Gervis, and Nova recorded another RBI to bring home Acuna.

    Giving back three runs, Nova gave the Twins more breathing room with a single that scored both Acuna and Rodriguez in the 6th inning. Back up 8-5, the hope was that they had this one in hand.

    Unfortunately, the Nationals fought back with a vengeance and answered with seven unanswered to complete the comeback.

    "Expect at least one 2022 draft pick to be promoted to Cedar Rapids on Tuesday."

    Now, there is a tease! Has to be Prielipp, right? Do they even have a spot for Schobel with Lee already there.............unless it's musical chairs with Julien going to AAA and Martin playing OF at AA, with Javier going to AA to play the infield.

    Possible.  Although, if it is Prielipp, I wonder if the plan is for him to pitch out of the pen for the remainder of the season 🤔.

    Article suggestion alert!!!

    As a sicko that obsessively checks the DSL and FCL box scores every day, I’d love to see an article with a little more info on some of the higher profile players at those levels if any of the writers are plugged in enough to get/share that info. 
     

    The DSL team has had some really impressive performances from a number of hitters in particular. Rafael Cruz (brother of Oneil Cruz) appeared to be torching DSL pitching before playing in the DSL All Star game and then promoted to the FCL. Yasser Mercedes, Bryan Acuna, Jose Rodriguez, Harold Grant, Anderson Nova and others have put up impressive numbers in their first professional season. Definitely an intriguing group that could use more coverage in my opinion.
