Memphis vs. San Antonio – Genesis Cabrera
Springfield vs. Tulsa (AM) – Evan Kruczynski
Palm Beach at Lakeland (AM) – Alex Fagalde
Peoria vs. Clinton – Tommy ParsonsApril 16, 2019 at 12:47 pm #87660April 16, 2019 at 12:48 pm #87661
Springfield is getting bombed, down 9-0 in the fifth. This is Kruczynski’s third rough start in three tries. His ERA is 11.77. I wonder what has happened to him?April 16, 2019 at 1:07 pm #87663
I was just asking a guy who is at the game the exact same question. This is not the same pitcher from last season. 17 earned runs in 13 innings.
Looks like that 5 game winning streak is going to end today.April 16, 2019 at 3:47 pm #87703

And Toerner keeps on raking!! Maybe he’ll get a shot at Springfield with O’Neills injury filtering down. Unless y’all want to see Fowler or JMart in center, surely they have to recall Thomas at some point.April 16, 2019 at 6:16 pm #87724

Right on, Scotty! I think we’ll be seeing “Alexander The Great” in St. Louis quicker than envisioned too.April 16, 2019 at 9:09 pm #87759
Tommy Parsons had another outstanding outing, also.

Leandro Cedeno wins it for Peoria with a bases loaded walk-off single in the bottom of the 9th.
Johan Mieses with a grand slamo in the 8th for Memphis to give them a 5-run lead and they would need it as Chasen Shreve was worthless tonight. Threw 24 pitches and didn’t even record an out. Gave up 4 earned runs on a walk, single, run scoring double, walk, and 2-run single before being pulled for John Fasola. An errant throw on a fielder’s choice by Schrock allowed the 4th run to score.April 16, 2019 at 9:45 pm #87765
This game can be so weird at times. Mieses has a great game on opening night, but gets bumped back down to Springfield and hits just .100 there. Gets promoted again and has a grand slam his first game back with Memphis.April 16, 2019 at 11:56 pm #87777

Regarding Kruczynski, I have seen two of his starts. The stuff has backed up from last year. His velocity has been down. He has been anywhere from 86-89 mph and he is not filling up the strike zone enough. At his best, he is a strike-thrower with four quality pitches (low-90s fastball, curveball, change, and slider).
On a side note, Montero has impressed me despite his early numbers. The ball sounds “different” off his bat.April 17, 2019 at 8:30 am #87785
Did the Cardinals change their pitching philosophy this offseason? I’m seeing way too many guys going up there and just nibbling at the strike zone.April 17, 2019 at 8:47 am #87791
Fagalde is an easy choice for Player of the Day, but Parsons deserves to be co-player of the day…..
or vice versa.April 17, 2019 at 8:52 am #87794
The #stlcards minors went 3-1 on Tuesday behind stand-out pitching by Alex Fagalde (PB) & Tommy Parsons (Peo). Andrew Knizner & Johan Mieses (Mem), Chase Pinder (PB) & Leandro Cedeño (Peoria) were hitting leaders, with the latter our Player of the Day. https://t.co/XfXPAgs23O pic.twitter.com/kA8pbrZJHY

I would take Fagalde, Shew, and Woodford in the St. Louis rotation right now. They couldn’t be any worse than what we have.April 17, 2019 at 8:55 am #87798
Well, mud… UConn Card threw the choice to me and I decided on Cedeno since he drove in all of his team’s runs, including the walk off winner.April 17, 2019 at 9:37 am #87805
Brian! Pugs might be scarred for life because of this…maybe go on a hunger strike…or possibly enter a monastery and become a monk.
I’m going to give Cedeno my ‘tri-player of the day’ along with Fagalde and Parsons.April 17, 2019 at 10:05 am #87811
I cannot disagree with you, mud!April 17, 2019 at 10:51 am #87826

That is a good sign, Derek. I’m looking forward to seeing him once he catches up to the league a bit.April 17, 2019 at 11:12 am #87830
