Not really a transaction, but I’m sure many saw on Wednesday that it was announced that Alex Kirilloff will not be playing in the Arizona Fall League. He is being replaced by Luke Raley. In addition, it was also announced that Ben Rortvedt will be the “Catcher to be Named Later” on the AFL squad. BLUE WAHOOS BITES Pensacola 1, Biloxi 4 Box Score For the second straight night, Alex Kirilloff came through with a ninth-inning home run with the team down by four runs. Unfortunately on this night, the bases weren’t loaded. In fact, they were empty and it accounted for the Blue Wahoo’s lone run in Game 2. https://twitter.com/MLBPipeline/status/1169802102740344832 Biloxi’s starter Dylan File was fantastic. Before the ninth inning, he gave up just one hit and hit one batter. He gave up the Kirilloff home run, but he earned the win. Jose Miranda had the only other Pensacola hit, a second-inning single. Trevor Larnach reached base early in the game when he was hit by a pitch. Royce Lewis followed Kirilloff’s home run with a walk. But those were the only four base runners of the game. Griffin Jax started and was charged with four runs on five hits and two walks over the first four innings. Two of those hits left the park. Dillon Thomas, who hit the game-winning homer in Game 1, hit a three-run homer in the third inning. Jake Gatewood hit a solo homer in the fourth inning. Edwar Colina came on for the fifth inning. He gave up one hit, hit one and struck out one batter. He left because he was ejected after the benches cleared. Stephen Gonsalves came on and got the final two outs of the sixth inning. He worked two more scoreless innings. He walked three and struck out one. Tom Hackimer got the final out of the eighth inning. The Blue Wahoos will need to win the next three games to advance to the Southern League’s second round. They return home to Pensacola for game 3 on Friday. KERNELS NUGGETS Cedar Rapids 2, Quad Cities 1 Box Score Like the Twins game, the Kernels were able to complete a 2-1 pitcher’s duel to even their series at one game a piece. Matt Canterino certainly set the tone for the game. The right-hander started with 4 2/3 innings before giving up a hit. He gave up two hits which scored the River Bandits’ lone run. He ended the inning with a pick-off. He gave up just those two hits, walked none and struck out eight batters. Dylan Thomas came on and tossed two scoreless innings in relief. For the second straight game, it was Tyler Webb that got the Kernels on the scoreboard. Following a Wander Javier triple, Webb beat a shift and singled in the game’s first run. https://twitter.com/JimCrikket/status/1169776527904530433 In the seventh inning, Webb doubled and then scored on a Jared Akins double to take back the lead, a lead that they would hold onto. Ricky Ramirez worked the final two innings. He struck out three to record the save. The Kernels will send Josh Winder to the mound for Game 3 on Wednesday trying to win the best-of-three series.

KERNELS NUGGETS Cedar Rapids 5, Peoria 9 Box Score Byron Buxton made a quick impression back in Low-A as he stretched what looked like a routine single into a hustle double. He was left at second base, but he would make it around the bases in his second at-bat. With two outs in the third inning, Buxton drew a walk in front of Matt Walner’s second home runs since being promoted from Elizabethton. He would get one more at-bat and he struck out. There was more to this game than Buxton cruising around the bases. Josh Winder started and put together another strong outing. He limited Peoria to four hits over six shutout innings with five strikeouts and two walks. His season ERA dropped to 2.68 to go along with a sub-1.00 WHIP. It was his team-high 11th quality start.

Steven Cruz and Benjamin Dum combined to allow one earned run over the final three innings. Cruz struck out the side in both innings he worked.

Charles Mack reached base twice and had the team’s only RBI. Overall, the team went 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.

  11. Upon signing with the Twins, Tyler Webb spent most of the summer in the Gulf Coast League, though he did play ten games in Elizabethton when they needed an outfielder. Join us in getting to know Twins minor league outfielder and 2018 draft pick Tyler Webb. Seth Stohs (SS): Growing up in Prosper, Texas, I have an assumption on which MLB team was your favorite team growing up. Did you get to a lot of Rangers games? Who were some of your favorite players? Tyler Webb (TW): Yes, growing up I was a big Rangers fan. My dad would take me to a bunch of games when I was younger and when I got older me and my friends would go on the weekends when we got a chance to make a game. My two favorite players that I got to watch were Michael Young and Josh Hamilton. SS: You were a three-time All Star football player in Texas. Do the movies and TV shows do justice to football in Texas, and what was your football experience like? TW: The movies do a good job of showing the hype of Texas football. There’s nothing like a Friday night football game in the state of Texas. The energy and atmosphere is unmatched. My football experience was unbelievable. I was fortunate enough to play all four years on varsity, so I got to play in a lot of big games and also play with some great players who went on to play at big division 1 schools and even to go on and play in the NFL. SS: You were also twice an All State performer in baseball. What were some of the better memories of your high school baseball career? TW: I was lucky enough to have a great coach in high school, he is actually Matt Carpenter’s, for the Cardinals, dad. We were and still are what I would consider one of the powerhouses in the state of Texas so we always made it deep into playoffs and won a lot of games. The best memories I have from high school baseball are just the playoff runs we made and the other big name schools we played and beat. SS: What was the recruitment process like for you out of high school, and what made Galveston College the right place for you to play? Did you consider playing football after high school too? TW: The recruiting process for baseball out of high school was very slow for me. I only had a few junior colleges that were looking at me. It wasn’t until my senior year that I decided to pursue baseball, because up until then I was so focused on football. But when I realized that I probably had more opportunities in baseball I decided to take that route. I chose Galveston College because coach Joblin was going to put me at a position that suited me best. I played infield in high school but knew my strength was outfield and Galveston was the only school that saw that. SS: What was the adjustment from the high school game to the junior college game? You stepped in and immediately put up some big numbers. TW: The adjustment from high school to junior college was tough. My freshman fall was terrible. I was having no success and wasn’t enjoying it. But something clicked for me going into the spring and I ended up having a great freshman year and then I went into my sophomore year with a ton of confidence and ended up being an All-American. SS: How about the decision to go to the University of Memphis after two years at Galveston? Did you have options, and what made becoming a Tiger the right move for you at that time? TW: My decision to go to Memphis was a no brainer. As soon as I stepped onto the campus I knew that was where I wanted and needed to go. I had some other options, but I just had a feeling that those weren’t the right places for me. I also had a high school teammate that was playing at Memphis at the time so that was neat to get to play with him again. SS: When did you first start to notice scouts at your games? When did you have your first interactions with scouts? TW: I first started noticing scouts at games my sophomore year of Junior College. And then scouts continued to come my junior and senior year of college. It really didn’t start heating up until my senior fall when I started having meetings with a bunch of teams. SS: The Twins took you in the 40th round. How did you find out that you had been drafted? How busy was your phone at that moment? TW: I had received some calls earlier in the draft, but teams never pulled the trigger on me. Then when it came to the last day the Twins had contacted me in the earlier rounds that day but when it came to the 40th round I hadn’t heard anything so I honestly stopped watching the draft. My mom on the other hand was still watching and my name popped up and she went crazy, then at that same time the area scout called me and let me know I had been picked. It was a very stressful but neat experience. SS: What has the adjustment been like for you so far, from the college game to the professional game, both on and off the field? TW: The adjustment from college to pro ball was tough but I was prepared. I have a few close friends who had been in pro ball a year or two before me so I was able to get good advice from them on what to expect. SS: At this very early stage in your career, what would you say are your biggest strengths? TW: My biggest strength right now would be my ability to learn. I still don’t believe I’ve reached my full potential and I know there is still a lot about the game that I can absorb and incorporate to my own game to be successful. SS: What are the areas of your game that you would like to spend time working to improve? TW: The part of my game that I feel needs improvement is hitting. I would consider myself an athletic hitter, but I want to be a pure hitter in the long run. SS: What do you have planned for the offseason? What was your major in school, and what do you do to get away from the game of baseball? TW: This offseason I am currently finishing up some school while I have the chance to. I’m majoring in business management. I love being outdoors so any chance I get to go hunting or fishing I do. SS: Who are some of the people who have helped you get to this point in your career? TW: First and foremost I have to give credit to my dad for putting me in baseball and providing me with whatever necessary to be successful in this game. My high school coach is another big influencer on how I got to where I am. He really changed my mind from football to baseball. Another person who helped me was my junior college coach. He really helped me become a better player both defensively and offensively and gave me a foundation to build off of. Then my coaches at Memphis really fine-tuned my skills to prepare me for pro ball. A person that was always a mentor for me throughout this was Torii Hunter. I grew up in the same town as him and played with his sons and he was always there to answer any questions I had. SS: Favorite Baseball movie? TW: The Sandlot is a classic. A huge Thank You to Tyler Webb for taking the time to respond to our questions. We wish him a great offseason and success going forward in his career. Feel free to leave comments or ask questions below.

Then when it came to the last day the Twins had contacted me in the earlier rounds that day but when it came to the 40th round I hadn’t heard anything so I honestly stopped watching the draft. My mom on the other hand was still watching and my name popped up and she went crazy, then at that same time the area scout called me and let me know I had been picked. It was a very stressful but neat experience. SS: What has the adjustment been like for you so far, from the college game to the professional game, both on and off the field? TW: The adjustment from college to pro ball was tough but I was prepared. I have a few close friends who had been in pro ball a year or two before me so I was able to get good advice from them on what to expect. SS: At this very early stage in your career, what would you say are your biggest strengths? TW: My biggest strength right now would be my ability to learn. I still don’t believe I’ve reached my full potential and I know there is still a lot about the game that I can absorb and incorporate to my own game to be successful. SS: What are the areas of your game that you would like to spend time working to improve? TW: The part of my game that I feel needs improvement is hitting. I would consider myself an athletic hitter, but I want to be a pure hitter in the long run. SS: What do you have planned for the offseason? What was your major in school, and what do you do to get away from the game of baseball? TW: This offseason I am currently finishing up some school while I have the chance to. I’m majoring in business management. I love being outdoors so any chance I get to go hunting or fishing I do. SS: Who are some of the people who have helped you get to this point in your career? TW: First and foremost I have to give credit to my dad for putting me in baseball and providing me with whatever necessary to be successful in this game. My high school coach is another big influencer on how I got to where I am. He really changed my mind from football to baseball. Another person who helped me was my junior college coach. He really helped me become a better player both defensively and offensively and gave me a foundation to build off of. Then my coaches at Memphis really fine-tuned my skills to prepare me for pro ball. A person that was always a mentor for me throughout this was Torii Hunter. I grew up in the same town as him and played with his sons and he was always there to answer any questions I had. SS: Favorite Baseball movie? TW: The Sandlot is a classic. A huge Thank You to Tyler Webb for taking the time to respond to our questions. We wish him a great offseason and success going forward in his career.

  13. Transactions Taylor Motter promoted to Rochester from Chattanooga, Rochester’s Luke Bard activated from the DL, and Chattanooga’s Todd Van Steensel activated from the DL. RED WINGS REPORT Rochester 2, Scranton/WB 1 Box Score Coming off of three-straight extra innings games, the Red Wings were happy to get this one done in regulation, scoring the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and hanging on for a narrow 2-1 victory. Thursday’s victory was the Wings’ 27th road win, the most in the International League. Byron Buxton was 0-for-2 with a strike out, and was forced out of this one due to injury. https://twitter.com/RocRedWings/status/1017556226169765888 Nick Gordon was 2-for-5 with a pair of RBIs and a strike out, providing all of the firepower. Starter Adalberto Mejia moved to 5-2 with six innings of one-run baseball. He gave up just three hits, struck out three and walked three. Trevor May pitched an inning of relief sending down all three batters he faced. Gabriel Moya earned a six-out save, giving up a hit and striking out two. CHATTANOOGA CHATTER Chattanooga 7, Montgomery 6 Box Score Chattanooga had the game well in hand, leading 7-1 after just three innings and their lead slowly trickled almost all the way away and they barely held on for a 7-6 win, including a pretty scary ninth inning that saw Montgomery put three runs on the board with the game-tying run on second base before they were retired. The Lookouts scored seven runs on just five hits and Ryan Walker committed three errors, one throwing and two fielding, but still managed to win. No hitter had more than one hit, but Ryan Walker made up for his defensive miscues with one swing, sending a 3-run home run out of the park in the third inning. Walker was 1-for-3 with a home run, a run scored, four RBIs, and a walk. Six pitchers all helped get the Lookouts a win on Thursday night, with Paco Rodriguez picking up the win with two innings of scoreless relief. Lewis Thorpe started the game and went 1 2/3 innings giving up an unearned run, no hits, and striking out a pair. Ryan Eades came in next and went 2 1/3 innings giving up a pair of hits and another unearned run. Todd Van Steensel fresh off the DL walked a pair and struck out a pair in an inning of work. Ryne Harper gave up four runs on four hits in 1 2/3 innings and was replaced by Cody Stashak who earned a save despite giving up a run-scoring double before getting the final out of the game. MIRACLE MATTERS Palm Beach 4, Fort Myers 2 Box Score The Miracle dropped the last game of their four-game set against Palm Beach and lost the series three games to one. The Miracle managed just five hits and three walks against 10 strikeouts and only took four at-bats with runners in scoring position. No one had more than one hit, and Mark Contreras (1-for-4) had the team’s only extra-base hit, a double. Alex Kirilloff was 0-for-4, as was Lewin Diaz (who had a worse line as it also included three strikeouts). Miguel Sano was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and two runs scored. Starter Tyler Wells went six innings and gave up four runs on five hits. He walked two, struck out six and gave up two home runs. Ryan Mason (1.0 IP), Colton Davis (1.2 IP) and Alex Robinson (0.1 IP) kept Palm Beach off the board the rest of the way, but their bats couldn’t dig them out of an early hole. KERNELS NUGGETS Cedar Rapids 6, Fort Wayne 2 Box Score Thursday night belongs to the Cedar Rapids Kernels. The Kernels had Trey Cabbage absolutely destroying baseballs. Cabbage was 4-for-4 with a run scored, a home run, and two RBIs. Meanwhile, on the mound, Bailey Ober turned in 6 2/3 innings, scattering five hits, giving up no runs and STRIKING OUT TEN! On top of those two stellar performances, Akil Baddoo had a pair of hits on a 2-for-5 night that included a double and two RBIs, and Robby Rinn added a pair of hits as well. In the bullpen Jose Martinez threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings, and Jared Finkel gave up a pair of runs over a full inning of work, but he had a six-run lead to work with and kept the victory intact. ELIZABETHTON TWINS TALK Elizabethton 7, Johnson City 2 Box Score Tyler Webb was 4-for-5 with a run scored and a pair of RBIs, Alex Robles was 3-for-5 with an RBI, and Michael Helmen was 3-for-4 with three runs scored and a triple. On top of those three strong days at the plate, Lean Marrero and Michael Davis also had multi-hit nights. On the mound, Carlos Suniaga earned his first win of the season with five innings of one-run baseball. He gave up six hits, walked no one and struck out three. Andrew Cabezas went 3 2/3 innings and gave up an unearned run on three hits, and Seth Pinkerton closed the game out, getting the only guy he faced to fly out to left.
