    Pretty happy to see Jordan Walker doing as well as he is in Peoria. He could easily get to AA in his age 19 season next year. He might even start there at this rate!

    It’s not often that a team loses when their staff registers 11 K’s and surrenders only 1 walk. Unfortunately, that’s the situation Memphis finds themselves in as they play in the top of the 9th in southern Tennessee. Memphis down 1-0 in quest of their 16th consecutive win. Flaherty spun 2 scoreless frames, whiffing 3 and issuing a free pass. Gorman 0-3 with a walk.

    Baker, Herrera, and Yepez crack 2 homers apiece. Springfield loses in a battle of field goals 18-12, while Memphis walks off an 8-7 win. Peoria wins 6-2 with Winn tripling and homering. Lardner pitched ver5y well.

    Yes indeed, Cardinals27. “Pez” may be in St. Louis sooner rather than later. Libby got lit up in Memphis to the tune of 4 long balls. He didn’t walk a batter though. And this Winn kid in Peoria is going to be a dandy. I think his MO (no not “Missouri”, but rather “Modus Operandi”) is going to be making an immediate impact with each and every class jump, proving that this WINNer belongs.

    Juan Yepez and Brendan Donovan are quietly and rapidly moving up the ranks in our system. I think both will be in St. Louis by 2023. I am trying to think of comps for each. Yepez may be another Jose Martinez but with a better glove. As for Donovan, maybe Tommy Herr? Considering Tommy has a red jacket that probably isn’t a fair comp. Maybe Skip Schumaker?

    Actually a better comp for Yepez might be Allen Craig.

    Gordon Graceffo and Ryan Loutos from the 2021 draft class each pitched an inning today. Each gave up one hit with no walks. Who knows what the future holds for these kids!

    Right on, Mud! A disturbing performance in this game from Levi Owen Prater. Levi goes just 1 2/3 innings weak, slinging 58 pitches, with only 26 of them being strikes. He yields 2 hits, both undeniable round trippers, whiffs 3 , walks 6, the end result being 5 deservingly earned runs and the loss.

    The hit off Loutos was of the scratch variety—a bouncing ball that the third baseman should have fielded. I was at the game and impressed by strike throwing Graceffo and Loutos.

    Boy, Yepez is really pummeling the ball at Memphis. 12 dingers in 48 games and a .907 OPS. I saw in the article that gscottar linked from VEB that some are high on him as a pure hitter. It would be nice to hit on one of these guys to come up and be DH for a year or two.

    It should be about time for Zack Thompson to go for his second win.

    He might be the next Adolis Garcia.

    He might be the next Adolis Garcia.

    We are so snake bitten that it’s pretty much what I expect. He’ll probably be traded today for some third rate starter who will put up am ERA of 5, then Yepez debuts in September and hits .350 for the month with 10-15 HRs.

    I would not be trading Yepez. He could be our next Allen Craig, at least before Craig got hurt.

    That would be significant forward progress, compared to trading him for an A level pitcher who puts up an era of 5 in AAA a couple years from now. Or just giving him away for cash.

    Why not be positive? Yepez, Nootbaar, and Burleson are all having good seasons. Nice to see.
