I would guess that Juan Daniel Encarnacion will be making his debut for Portland today, but who knows? This would have been Perales's turn.

DSL Blue understood the theme...

They got 2 scoreless innings from Jesus Travieso & then went to Jose Galindano.

As did the FCL Sox, starting Juan Valera.

I see where DSL Red were going with Yermain Ruiz starting, but it seems like a bit of a stretch.

Valera, who turned 18 last month, pitched 3 perfect innings with 5 strikeouts, lowering his ERA to 2.33 in 19.1 IP.

He appears to have taken a big jump from last year when he struggled to a 5.93 ERA in 27.1 IP for DSL Blue.

Prior to today, his success seemed a bit unsustainable as he had maintained his 6.6 bb/9 pace from last year & was only striking out 6.6 per 9. Today is interesting, though.

The 6'3 RHP signed for $45k last April & is from Sabana Grande de Palenque, DR.

FCL Sox play for the 1st time all week & the game only lasts 6 innings.

NDLC got through 1.2 scoreless despite a hit & 3 walks, & Adam Bates came in for the final 1.1 innings to complete the shutout.

Sox win 3-0.

Arias 2-3, hr, 2b
Yoely 1-3, 2b
Starlyn 1-3, sb
Musett 1-2, hbp

DSL Blue won 9-4.

After starting the season 0-15, The Million Dollar Man, VLAD Asencio is heating up.

He's 4-9 with a walk, a double & a steal the last 2 games.

I'm really starting to get excited about the DSL guys the last couple days after being in wait & see mode. 9 runs on 16 hits probably helps with that, too...

SS - Ilan Fernandez 3-4, bb, 2 2b (1.160 OPS in 21 PAs)

1B - Justin Gonzales 2-4, 2 2b (1.092 OPS in 28 PAs)

3B - Jhiancarlos Diaz 2-3, bb (1.038 OPS in 13 PAs)

2B - EJ Darville 2-5, 3b (.829 OPS in 20 PAs)

CF - Tavano Baker 2-5 (elite name in 31 PAs...0 walks)

C - Liosward Marin 1-3, 2 bb (1.015 OPS in 14 PAs)

LF - Jesus Lugo 1-4, 3-run homer (another LUGO in 13 PAs)

DSL Red won 7-6.

Yermain Ruiz started & pitched 3 scoreless innings with 1 hit & 3 strikeouts.

Breilin Arredondo pitched 1.1 scoreless & now has 5.1 scoreless innings so far this season.

But the SSS guy who stands out from this game is Yander Bonaci.

There is a lot of trauma associated around most of that name, but the 5'11 LHP went 6 up, 6 down & in 3 games this season:

6 IP
0 runs
1 hit
2 bb
8 k

Bonaci, who turns 18 in October, is from Turmero, VZ & signed for $25k this January.

Cesar Muzziotti has a pretty cool name & made his season debut today in the 9th inning with a 7-6 lead. He walked a guy & hit another 2, but got out of the inning unscathed & picked up the save.

DSL Red may be off to a 6-2 start, but they don't have the gaudy OPS's of the Blue guys.

Jhoan Pegura (1-3, 2 hbp, sb) has the highest in today's lineup at .808.

CF - Anderson Fermin 2-3, 2 bb, sb (2 cs)
DH - Edwin Diaz 3-5, 2b
1B - Carlos Carrasquel 0-1, bb, 2 hbp

Sogard has started games everywhere but CF & C.

SS - 26
3B - 11
RF - 7
LF - 6
2B - 5
1B - 1
DH - 1

Meidroth hasn't been asked to play OF, yet, but has been pretty balanced between 3 positions:

SS - 24 (5 errors)
3B - 18 (2 errors)
2B - 13 (0 errors)

JDE last pitched on Tuesday the 4th, so I expect he probably did the sidework thing or whatever it is they've been doing with guys on Mondays on the 10th & wouldn't be due to start until Sunday.

Wikelman last pitched on the 9th, so he'd be due to start tomorrow.

So today seems like it would be a 2nd straight bullpen game with Coffey & Dobbins both pitching earlier this week & no other starters around.

Helcris pitched an inning on Tuesday so they could go to him for a few innings.

& Kwiatkowski last pitched 2.2 innings on the 9th, so I'd expect they'll try to get like 4 innings out of him if they can.

& then maybe 2 innings from Hoppe.

So that's my prediction.

Helcris - 3
Kwiat - 4
Hoppe - 2

Cutter Coffey has 2 home runs tonight, for 6 home runs in the last 5 games (at least 1 in each).

Celtics have put enough blech into the evening that we'll start with the bad news games 1st so we can end the evening on a good note. Also going to do the bad news from the game 1st.

Bad
WooSox lost 8-3. Sal Romano seems like he shouldn't be around much longer. He allowed 6 runs & got 2 outs. He's 30 & has a 9.18 ERA in 16.2 IP.

Good
Jason Alexander had a good start.

I guess Lugo's wrist is fine.
For now!

YORDANNY struck out 8 of the 15 hitters he faced but allowed what I can only assume was a fluke 2-run homer so his final line was only OK.

4 IP
2 ER
3 hits
0 bb
8 k

56 pitches, 41 strikes (73.2%)

Pretty encouraging as he builds back up.

Bryce Bonnin allowed a run in 2 innings to pick up the win & Gabe Jackson allowed 1 run in 3 innings to pick up the save in a 13-4 Greenville victory.

Conor Steinbaugh & Nathanael Cruz each pitched 2 innings & each allowed 1 run. Salem won 5-3.

For those who, like me, thought, "Hey, I think it's been a while since Natty Cruz got into a game", you are correct. He had not pitched since he pitched 2 innings on June 5th. This is something you guys think about, right?
