Scranton:

Defeated Buffalo, 6-4.

*Corban Joseph: *3-for-5, 2 2B (23), HR (13), 3 RBI, RS – Seriously, if they don’t deal him, what are they going to do with him? He is surging through this level. *Eduardo Nunez: *2-for-5, 2B (4), RS *Ronnier Mustelier: *2-for-4, RS – Average down to .284 for Scranton due to a 12-for-58 August. *Chris Dickerson: *4-for-5, 2B (23), 2 RS – .325 batting average for the 30-year old.

*Preston Claiborne: *2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K (4.88 ERA; 27.2 IP, 25 H, 17 R, 15 ER, 1 HR, 11 BB, 24 K) – Has allowed one earned run over his last 9 appearances. ———————- Trenton:

Defeated Akron, 6-1.

*Luke Murton: *3-for-4, 2B (20), 3B (2), 2 RBI, RS – He has shown off his power this year, but he is 26 years old without any split advantage vs. left-handed pitching. *JR Murphy: *2-for-5, 2B (10), RBI, RS – Showing off some serious power potential since his promotion. *David Adams: *2-for-4, 2B (21), RBI, RS, BB – A few years ago, it seemed thateverynight he was hitting a double or two. He isn’t quite back to that pace, but this has been an outstanding season for a player who was a huge mystery when the season began. *Rob Segedin: *2-for-4, 2B (4), RS – Hitting .185. In case you were wondering, he is playing left field for Trenton with Adams at third base.

*Mikey O’Brien: *6.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K (4.30 ERA; 96.1 IP, 98 H, 52 R, 46 ER, 7 HR, 39 BB, 69 K) – He needed a big start like this. A bit of a middle-of-the-road type of prospect who has a chance. *Graham Stoneburner: *2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HR – Has a 4.93 ERA in 34.2 innings with a 26/8 K/BB ratio. ——————- Tampa:

Split a DH with Daytona, winning 11-5 before losing, 4-3.

Has 29 doubles, 17 HR, and 15 stolen bases overall on the season. Has struck out 102 times in 405 AB. *Tyler Austin: *3*-*for-8, 2 2B (8), 4 RBI, RS – .330/.388/.462 in 106 AB for Tampa. *Slade Heathcott: *3-for-8, 2B (15), 3 RS, BB, SB (15) – .311/.386/.497.

*Nik Turley: *6.2 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K – (8-5, 3.05 ERA; 106.1 IP, 92 H, 38 R, 36 ER, 5 HR, 43 BB, 110 K) – Very intrigued to see what he does in the upper minors. *Branden Pinder: *0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K (2.94 ERA; 64.1 IP, 67 H, 26 R, 21 ER, 1 HR, 26 BB, 64 K) ————— Charleston:

Defeated Lexington, 3-2.

*Ali Castillo: *2-for-4, HR (5), 2 RBI, RS – Hitting .310 on the season; this is his first professional season where he has hit more than one HR. At 23, not young for the league and he was pretty much playing a backup role until all of the promotions and Angelo Gumbs’ injury. *Robert Refsnyder: *1-for-4, 2B (6), RBI *Ben Gamel: *2-for-4, 2B (21) – .300/.336/.389. Good year for a 20-year old. Smaller in stature (5’11″, 180), so who knows if he will develop home run power. *Saxon Butler: *1-for-4, 2B (4), RS *Cito Culver: *0-for-3, RS, BB, E (20) – His “surge” in July has been followed by a back-down-to-earth August.

*Cesar Vargas: *4.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K (Charleston debut; 3-2 with a 2.97 ERA in 11 games (36.1 IP) for the GCL squad with a 30/8 K-BB ratio. 20-year old right-hander pitched well in the DSL between 2009-2011) *Pedro Guerra: *1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (1.70 ERA; 53 IP, 34 H, 10 R, 10 ER, 15 BB, 55 K) – 22-year old right-hander pitched for a while in the Twins organization. First season he has been used exclusively as a reliever. ——————– Staten Island:

*Matt Duran: *2-for-4, 2B (7), HR (1), 4 RBI, RS – Hitting a grand slam for your first HR of the season is not so bad. *Ravel Santana: *1-for-3, RBI, RS

*Tim Flight: *3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K (5.97 ERA; 37.2 IP, 49 H, 31 R, 25 ER, 1 HR, 19 BB, 32 K) – 6’4″ left-hander was 17th round pick in the 2012 draft. Pitched in Division II, where he won the Pitcher of the Year Award. *James Pezos: *2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K (1.98 ERA; 36.1 IP, 27 H, 9 R, 8 ER, 0 HR, 19 BB, 36 K) – Nice debut for the 21-year old left-hander.
