Down on the Farm: Low A Report

Beloit Snappers (8-7)
T-3rd -- Midwest League Western Division

Snappers Season Stats

Starting Pitchers

1.) Jeff Manship - 4 starts [2 starts]
2.) Cole Devries - 2 starts, 2 RA [1 start]
3.) Adam Hawes - 3 starts [1 start]
4.) Alex Burnett - 3 starts [1 start]
5.) Jose Lugo - 3 starts [1 start]

Who's Hot: Jeff Manship continues to roll on through the Midwest League, picking up his first win and going 13.2 innings and giving up just 2 runs on 6 hits with 12 K's and just 2 walks in his two starts this week. Manship now has a 1.08 ERA and a 0.68 WHIP in 25 innings, and a very solid 28-2 K-BB ratio. At what point does the promotion watch start? My guess is mid-May . . . Cole Devries also had a solid week, going 5 innings and giving up 2 unearned runs on 4 hits and a walk with 6 K's. Devries has a 0.73 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP in 12.1 innings to go along with an 11-4 K-BB ratio. Finally, Alex Burnett went 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits with a walk and 5 K's. His season ERA sits at 4.50 and his WHIP at 1.29 in 14 innings to go along with a 14-4 K-BB ratio.

Who's Not: Adam Hawes had the worst start of the week for the Snappers, going 4.1 innings and giving up 3 runs on 6 hits with 3 walks and 4 K's. He still has solid season numbers, with a 3.52 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP in 15.1 innings. Jose Lugo, meanwhile, went 4.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits with 4 walks and 3 K's. He's had the roughest time amongst the Snappers starters this season, with an ERA of 5.25 and a WHIP of 1.92 in 12 innings this year.

Relief Pitchers
1.) Adam Revelette - 7 RA [2 RA]
2.) Armando Gabino - 5 RA [2 RA]
3.) Robert Delaney - 5 RA [2 RA]
4.) Danny Vais - 5 RA [2 RA]
5.) Dan Leatherman - 5 RA [2 RA]
6.) Sean Land - 5 RA [2 RA]
7.) Danny Hernandez - 5 RA [2 RA]

Who's Hot: Armando Gabino went 2.2 innings and gave up just 2 hits while striking out 4 this week to lower his season ERA to 0.90 with a 1.00 WHIP and a 7-1 K-BB ratio. Danny Hernandez also had a decent week, going 2.1 innings and allowing just 1 run on 3 hits with 3 K's -- his season ERA is now sitting at 1.42 and his WHIP at 0.95 along with a 7-2 K-BB ratio.

Who's Not: Sean Land went 2.1 innings, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks while striking out 3. Land still has a solid 2.57 ERA on the season and a 1.57 WHIP in 7 innings of work. Adam Revelette went 0.2 innings in 2 appearances, and while he didn't allow any runs, he did give up 2 hits on 2 walks with 1 K. His season ERA sits at 3.00 and his WHIP is a horrendous 3.33 in 3 innings of work.

1.) Greg Yersich - C(9) [C(3)]
2.) Allan de San Miguel - C(7) [C(3)]

Who's Hot: Uhhhh -- empty set.

Who's Not: Greg Yersich went 0-for-9 this week and is hitting .103 on the season, while Allan de San Miguel went 2-for-10 (his first 2 hits of the season) to bring his batting average to a towering .100 (although he did hit his first HR of the season). Ugh.

1.) Garrett Olson - 3B(6), SS(4), DH(2), LF(2), 1B(3) [3B(2), SS(2), LF(2), 1B(1)]
2.) Johnny Woodard - 1B(13), DH(1) [1B(5), DH(1)]
3.) Danny Valencia - 3B(8), DH(5), 1B(1) [DH(3), 3B(2)]
4.) Brian Dinkelman - 2B(13) [2B(4)]
5.) Yancarlos Ortiz - SS(12) [SS(5)]
6.) Daniel Berg - DH(6), 3B(3), 1B(1) [DH(2), 3B(2)]
7.) William Luque - SS(5), 2B(3), 3B(2) [2B(2), 3B(1), SS(1)]
DL - Andrew Thompson
DL - Paul Kelly

Who's Hot: Johnny Woodard went 8-for-19 this week and stole a base. He's hitting .289 with a .794 OPS on the season, although his 12 K's in 38 AB's is a little high. Danny Valencia also continues to smack the ball, going 7-for-19 on the week including his 4th homerun of the year, and is now hitting .354 on the season with a 1.082 OPS with 10 RBI's and 3 stolen bases. Finally, Brian Dinkelman also had a solid week, going 5-for-16 to raise his season average to .289 with a .940 OPS.

Who's Not: William Luque went 1-for-10 this week and is hitting just .120 on the season. Danny Berg, meanwhile, had a reasonable 4-for-13 week but is still hitting just .167 for the year.

1.) Chris Parmelee - RF(10), LF(3), DH(1) [RF(5), LF(1)]
2.) Joe Benson - CF(13) [CF(4)]
3.) Danny Santiesteban - RF(4), LF(3), CF(2) [CF(2), RF(1)]
4.) Mark Robinson - LF(8), RF(2) [LF(4), RF(1)]

Who's Hot: Chris Parmelee continues to bring his average up, going 7-for-22 on the week, including hitting his 2nd HR of the season. His season average is still at a low .240 with a .789 OPS. The biggest problem for Parmelee is that he's struck out an amazing 23 times in just 50 at-bats -- which is just really, really bad.

Who's Not: Joe Benson went just 1-for-13 this week and is hitting just .146 on the season with a .424 OPS, and further, like Parmelee he has struck out a horrid 16 times in 48 at-bats. Mark Robinson also went 1-for-13 this week and is hitting just .125 with a .268 OPS with 10 K's in 32 at-bats. Strikeouts are an epidemic with this team!
