G-BATS season debut. Not sure if that nickname works for a pitcher?

Zach Bryant got the start & made his 2nd rehab appearance, pitching a scoreless inning with a hit, a hbp & a strikeout.

Then Gilberto Batista made his much anticipated (by me) FCL debut & pitched a 1-2-3 2nd with 2 strikeouts.

Now The Generator is in for the 3rd.

The FCL Sox scored 4 in the 1st & have a 4-0 lead.

Van Der Schaaf pitched 2 scoreless innings, 2 hits, 2 strikeouts.

Diego Hernandez still has no idea where the ball is going unfortunately, though.

I want Yoellin Cespedes promoted soon. That man can rake.
I was looking at Devers & he spent his entire 18 y/o season in A-Ball.

Last year Johanfran had 139 FCL PAs before being promoted & Yuten had 164. But Cespedes is a higher rated prospect & is relatively older than both.

They both had wRC+ in the 130s when they were promoted. Cespedes was at 107 prior to today in 43 PAs.

Van Der Schaaf pitched 2 scoreless innings, 2 hits, 2 strikeouts.

Diego Hernandez still has no idea where the ball is going unfortunately, though.
Diego allowed a single & walked 4, only recording 1 out & allowing 2 runs.

Jesus Garcia got out of the jam & pitched 1.2 scoreless on 2 hits & a walk with 2 strikeouts.

& then they ran out of good pitchers & Cristofer Soriano & Yonfi Rodriguez combined to allow 8 runs in the 7th & final inning & blow an 8-2 lead.

They are batting in the bottom of the 7th down 10-8.

The hit was reclassified as an error.

Bryant turns 26 in 10 days or so & when last healthy pitched 33 not-so-good AA innings in '22. Would expect him to return to Portland when done rehabbing.

I started this discussion in the Portland thread... but this start is not going to help Dobbins' chances of being the next promotion after Penrod...

1.2 IP
5 ER
5 hits
5 bb
1 k

Portland scored 5 in the bottom of the 2nd to tie it up, though.

It was better than Jacob Webb who allowed 3 runs in 2 innings.

Felix Cepeda got the last 2 outs to end the top of the 7th. Portland up 13-11.

Cepeda gave them 2.2 IP without an earned run on 2 hits, 0 bb & struck out 5, picking up his 9th save.

Kwiatkowski picked up the win. In 12 games between AA & AAA this year, he is 7-0.

Gasper 3-4, hr, bb

In yet another terrible Jorge Benitez outting he allowed 4 runs in 0.2 IP on 3 hits, 3 walks & a hbp.

Luis Guerrero had to come in to get the last out (k).

Yeah, false alarm.

Blanco allowed a run in the 1st 2 innings (23 strikes in 27 pitches, 85.2%), then ERC came in.
ERC apparently doesn't like coming out of the bullpen. He allowed 5 runs, 2 earned, in 3 innings, & only threw 28 strikes in 57 pitches.

Francis Hernandez allowed a run in 3 IP & in 2 IP Natty Cruz allowed the Manfred Man to score & Salem lost 8-7 in 10 innings.
