MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: June 11

At least Lake Elsinore won. On a night where El Paso, San Antonio, and Fort Wayne all had an early hole to climb out of, the Storm scored 11 runs in the third and fourth to secure an easy win.

Chihuahuas 5 – New Orleans Zephyrs 6

Key Statistics LF Jonathan Galvez 2-4, RBI; RF Jeff Francouer 1-4, HR (13), 2 RS; RHP Billy Buckner 5.1 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 Ks.

Prospect Watch: Searching for positives, searching for positives…. Check back tomorrow.

Missions 6 – Midland Rockhounds 7

Key Statistics CF Reymond Fuentes 2-5, 2B, RS; 2B Casey McElroy 3-5, 2B, RS 2 RBI; DH Jason Hagerty 2-2, HR (7), 2 RBI, 2 BB.

Prospect Watch: I wrote it a month ago when McElroy was hitting .210 that he was coming around. Since then he has raised his batting average another 50 points. In April he had an OPS of .506, in May it rose to .756, and thus far in June he has a stellar .906 OPS. He is hitting, drawing walks and hitting for some power. He is doing everything you want out of a middle infielder.

Storm 12 – High Desert Mavericks 8

Key Statistics CF Alberth Martinez 3-5, 2B, 2 RS, 2 RBI; SS Diego Goris 2-6, HR (11), 2 RS, 5 RBI; RF Hunter Renfroe 2-6, 2B, HR (16), 3 RS, 2 RBI; RHP Bryan Rodriguez 5 IP, 10 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 4 Ks.

Prospect Watch: Hopefully Alberth Martinez is having a bi-polar season. In April he hit over .300 with an .834 OPS. That number plummeted in May as he hit just .212 with a .588 OPS. June hits with Martinez mired in a slump and immediately he gets on base and drives in runs. Since then he has reached base safely in every game in June and hitting a robust .333/.395/.528.

TinCaps 3 – Lansing Lugnuts 2

Key Statistics DH Dustin Peterson 3-4, 3B, 2 RSl 2B Fernando Perez 2-4, RBI; LF Ronnie Richardson 1-4, HR (1), RBI; RHP Adrian De Horta 2.2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 2 Ks.

Prospect Watch: Prior to the game today, De Horta told the local media that he was working on his control. He then proceeded to walk the first batter of the game. De Horta was voted as the top pitcher, by stuff, in the AZL last year. He has great potential, but had issues with control. Last year it was 13 walks in 31 innings, this year it has taken a step back with 38 walks in 47 innings. De Horta is only 19, but has a ways to go before his performances match his potential.
