As @GoPBCardinals said, Alex Reyes is pitching for the #stlcards high-A club tonight at Charlotte. The @StoneCrabs are a Rays club so use the DH at home. I watched Reyes throw last week in Jupiter. He wore a glove, but was not allowed to catch returns. ($) https://t.co/BWJWqntYKA pic.twitter.com/bUixkrqLvp

Alex Reyes seemed to get stronger as he progressed. Retired last eight batters straight, including four of his six strikeouts plus four infield outs. In addition to his fastball that peaked at 99, he used his slider and curve. Of course, it is high-A.

Gorman with a couple hits and Nunez one, as Peoria clips Wisconsin 6-5 in America’s Dairyland. Speaking of Wisconsin, we here are very very nervous this evening with the Raptors invading our fair State. The thought of this great Bucks squad losing 3 straight is simply unimaginable. Bucks win this one 124-115 with Bledsoe going off for 28 points. Wish us well, gang!
P. S. Aubrey Drake does indeed truly suck!!!May 23, 2019 at 10:42 pm #91557dac8b9ParticipantPaid - Annual
I’ve been following the box scores of Nunez ever since I watched his first game in Peoria. It was evident in his debut that, while he clearly looked overmatched against breaking balls, he was making substantial progress as the game went on and looked noticeably better in his last at bat compared to his first one. As I’ve been monitoring his box scores, I’ve noticed two interesting trends. The first trend is that he has really cut down on his strikeouts after his first few games, which is really promising (though it’d be nice if he also drew more walks). The other trend I noticed is that he is hitting for almost no power, as he currently has only one extra base hit. Obviously, this is the best pitching he’s ever faced and the power will likely return with more time at the level. What I can’t tell from just reading box scores is how often he hits the ball hard and how he is adjusting to breaking stuff. I know he is striking out much less, so it’s clear he’s made some adjustments to secondary pitches. But I cannot tell if he is having any luck hitting them without watching the game or reading the report of someone who has. Has anyone here watched Nunez recently and could give me the answer?May 24, 2019 at 7:13 am #91559Minuteman3ParticipantFree
Looks like Dylan Carlson is leading every stat known to man with Springfield.May 24, 2019 at 7:41 am #91564
The 2-2 Thursday for the #stlcards system featured wins by Palm Beach and Peoria and bullpen failures for Memphis and Springfield. The latter wasted a strong start by Player of the Day Angel Rondon, who fanned nine in six one-run frames for the S-Cards. https://t.co/AKsasfxe9Q pic.twitter.com/2BV4B9vUOC

Great outing by Rondon. I am not sure what to make of Reyes’ outing against high A opponents. It was very good, and we could use him in the rotation if he can throw strikes.May 24, 2019 at 12:40 pm #91585birdemicParticipant
Kruczynski currently strikes me as a candidate for a ‘primary pitcher’. The past two outings (and even some of his earlier outings in Springfield) seemed to unravel around the third time through the order. The Redbirds used Meisinger as an opener on Monday…maybe they could try using him as an opener again before bringing in Krucz.

Meisinger may be needed to start Saturday. As of now, Memphis has not named anyone.
BTW, I thought the “opener” tag is for a guy who takes the first inning before the regular starter comes in. Instead, Meisinger went the first three innings on the 20th, which is probably about all he could stretch out to pitch. The rest of the bullpen completed the final six innings.
