Down on the Farm: High A Report

Ft. Myers Miracle (22-30)
6th Place -- Florida State League West Division

Miracle Season Stats

Starting Pitchers

1.) Oswaldo Sosa - 11 starts [1 start]
2.) Jay Rainville - 10 starts, 1 RA [1 start]
3.) Joshua Hill - 1 start, 13 RA [1 start]
4.) Zach Ward - 4 starts, 8 RA [DNP]
5.) Yohan Pino - 3 starts, 9 RA [DNP]

Who's Hot: All three of the guys who made starts this week did well. Jay Rainville went 6 innings and allowed just 1 unearned run on 5 hits while striking out 7. His season ERA fell to 2.94, with a 1.27 WHIP and a 40-11 K-BB ratio in 49 innings. Oswaldo Sosa went 5.2 innings and allowed 3 runs (1 earned) on 7 hits and 2 walks with 5 K's. His season ERA now sits at 2.54, with a 1.29 WHIP and a 49-19 K-BB ratio in 56.2 innings. Finally, Joshua Hill made his first start of the season yesterday, and went 5 innings, allowing just 1 unearned run on 3 hits and a walk while striking out 6. His season ERA is 3.55, with a 1.50 WHIP and a 27-12 K-BB ratio in 25.1 innings. Congratulations are also in order for the recently promoted Ryan Mullins, who took his 1.98 ERA and 1.13 WHIP to New Britain.

Who's Not: Empty set for the week.

Relief Pitchers
1.) Eduardo Morlan - 17 RA [1 RA]
2.) Angel Garcia - 15 RA [1 RA]
3.) Kyle Aselton - 14 RA [1 RA]
4.) David Shinskie - 14 RA [1 RA]
5.) Alexander Smit - 6 starts, 2 RA [1 RA]
6.) Armando Gabino - 3 RA [1 RA]

Who's Hot: Lots of good performances this week to choose from, starting with Armando Gabino, who went 2 innings and struck out 3 in his third performance as a member of the Miracle. He still has yet to allow a run, and has a 0.20 WHIP in 5 innings, along with a 3-0 K-BB ratio. Eduardo Morlan had nearly as good of a performance, going 2 innings with 2 K's to lower his season ERA to 2.60 and his WHIP to 0.76 with a 39-3 K-BB ratio in 27.2 innings. Then, there are Kyle Asleton (1 inning, 1 walk, 1 K) and Alexander Smit (1.1 innings, 1 hit, 2 K's) who weren't exactly slouches this week, either.

Who's Not: David Shinskie had the worst performance out of the bullpen this week, going 2 innings and giving up 2 runs on 2 hits with 1 walk to raise his ERA to 3.24 and his WHIP to 1.16. And in a normal week, this wouldn't even bear mentioning, but Angel Garcia's 2 inning, 1 run, 1 hit, 3 K performance is actually on the "Not Hot" list because of the great performances by his teammates.

1.) Caleb Moore - C(23), DH(5) [C(2)]
2.) Jeff Christy - C(21), DH(3) [C(1)]
3.) Javier Sanchez - DH(10), C(9) [DNP]

Who's Hot: Caleb Moore went 3-for-7 to raise his average to .215 with a .536 OPS.

Who's Not: Jeff Christy went 0-for-3 in his one start behind the plate, and is now hitting .175/.533. I'll also throw Javi Sanchez on this list for not playing -- but considering that he's hitting .172 this season, maybe that should qualify him for the "hot" list . . .

1.) Steven Tolleson - SS(21), 2B(18), DH(7) [DH(3)]
2.) Juan Portes - 2B(25), 3B(20), RF(3) [3B(3)]
3.) Whitney Robbins - 1B(31), DH(9), 3B(6) [1B(1)]
4.) Toby Gardenhire - 3B(19), 2B(9), SS(5), DH(1) [2B(3)]
5.) Matthew Betsill - 1B(12), 3B(7), SS(6), DH(2) [1B(2)]
6.) Luis Ugueto - SS(20) [SS(3)]

Who's Hot: Luis Ugueto went 5-for-13 on the week to raise his batting average to .268 with a .678 OPS. On the downside, he continued making errors this week, and now has 6 in 21 games (20 in the field). Steven Tolleson also had a good week as the DH for all three games, going 4-for-14 to raise his average to .253 with a .667 OPS.

Who's Not: It's rough when you only get a couple of at-bats, but Whit Robbins 0-for-2 was the worst average of the week, so he's on this list. He's joined by Juan Portes (2-for-13; .245 on the season) and Matthew Betsill (2-for-9; .163 on the season).

1.) Edward Ovalle - CF(32), LF(10), RF(4), DH(1) [CF(3)]
2.) Dwayne White - RF(22), LF(15), DH(8) [LF(3)]
3.) Erik Lis - LF(30), 1B(9), DH(6) [DNP]
4.) Eli Tintor - RF(23), CF(21) [RF(3)]

Who's Hot: Dwayne White went 5-for-12 this week with a homer and a 4 RBI game to bring his batting average to .250 with a .606 OPS. Edward Ovalle also had a solid week at the plate, going 3-for-11 with 2 homeruns to bring his average up a bit, to .194, with a .615 OPS.

Who's Not: Eli Tintor went 2-for-12 and is hitting just .192. Erik Lis didn't play. Both make the "not hot" list.
