RHP Cody Ponce, acquired in the Jordan Lyles trade, was assigned to Altoona.
Infielder Alfredo Reyes (187/286/265) was then demoted from Altoona to Greensboro. After five years in the Mets system from 2011 to 2015, Reyes was selected by the Pirates in the minor league portion of the Rule V Draft. Now in his ninth year, he reached Triple-A for eight games before being returned to Altoona and now dropped back to Low-A Greensboro. Reyes has a .604 career OPS but in 2018 had an .810 mark with a .310 BA in 61 games at Bradenton.
Starter was Eduardo Vera tagged for three homers, raising ERA to 6.73. C Christian Kelley homered for the Indians
...so Vera got sent back out for the sixth and gave up three more runs (6.95 ERA), then Columbus tacked on three more against Tyler Lyons in the eighth.
Will Craig and Pablo Reyes each had a couple of hits.
Altoona was not scheduled.
Bradenton was not scheduled.
Starter Noe Toribio (3.00 ERA in 36 IP) gave up four hits in six innings, but three of them left the park, accounting for all four runs against him. Toribio walked two and struck out three.
The Grasshoppers had only three hits, two by RJ Jonah Davis (198/289/368) .
Short Season A
West Virginia was not scheduled.
Bristol was not scheduled.
2019 1st Round pick Quinn Priester (2.25 ERA in 20 IP) had another nice game, even if it was the first time in five starts that he’d allowed more than one run, giving up two in five innings on five hits and no walks while fanning five.
C Dylan Shockley (214/300/262) had a pair of doubles and drove in three runs.
17 year old right-hander Listher Sosa (3.23 ERA in 39 IP) didn’t allow a run over the first five innings, giving up just two hits and a walk while fanning three, but he was followed by Jarlin Yes who was hammered for five runs on five hits and a walk in the sixth and seventh while managing to collect just three outs.
Shutout until the eight, the Mariners scored a pair for a 2-1 lead, but the indefatigable Pirates put four on the board in the bottom of the inning, collecting six of their seven hits in the game, to bring home another win.
Held hitless with two walks over the first four innings by Mariners starter Juan Burgos, that didn’t stop them from scoring an earned run.
Pirates pitcher Jorge Ramos put up zeroes through five innings, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out four.
