Prospect Watch Donn Roach was the scheduled starter but was a late scratch (no word why). Billy Buckner got the start instead… He was shelled...Rymer Liriano went 0-3, with a walk and a pair of strikeouts…Taylor Lindsey is just 2-21 since joining the Padres... A tough day for the AAA team.

Prospect Watch Missions had their own big inning scoring seven runs in the third. New Mission Alex Dickerson had a big RBI single. Not a bad adjustment for someone who hasn’t played in full season ball since 2013… The most impressive stat by Spangenberg this season has got to be his line against lefties. .424/.424/.515 (14-33). Not bad for a lefty-lefty mathcup.
Storm 2 – Bakersfield Blaze 9
Prospect Watch After taking a ground ball to the throat Jose Rondon was back in the starting lineup. He went 1-4, with an RBI. Not counting the throat game where he left after one at bat Rondon has hit safely in every game with the Storm. He has picked up right where Diego Goris left off.

TinCaps 3 – Beloit Snappers 2
Prospect Watch Its been a tough month for the TinCaps hitters not named Trea Turner. While Turner raised his average to .450 (18-40), the rest of the TinCaps are barely hitting .200 in the last two weeks. Dustin Peterson is in a 2-25 slump, Franmil Reyes 3-19, Perez was 2-15 before tonight, even Jake Bauers is 5-24. Ouch.

Ems 2– Tri City Dust Devils 0
Prospect Watch Three relievers, Adrian De Horta, Aaron Creesley, and Tony Rizzotti combined to toss seven hitless innings… Nine days ago Cordero played short and committed four errors, he didn’t play shortstop again until Saturday when he committed three errors. Five days later he played short again…and he only made one error! Gold glove here we come.

AZL Padres 3 – AZL Giants 14
Prospect Watch One mistake was all Wieland made in his second start back. But seeing as how stats don’t really matter all that much when it comes to rehab assignments, Wieland had a great start. Next up July 29th, 45 pitch limit. Hopefully after that he goes to a higher level.
