7/21 Minor League Wrap-Up

New, 29 comments

- LATE.  Work-related.  I'm not going to go into too much detail.

- Carlos Triunfel hit a GRAND SLAM on Monday against Lancaster.  Granted, there was yet another 18 mph wind towards the LF foul pole in Adelanto, but still.

- The High Desert Mavs, to date, have used 29 different pitchers this season.  TWENTY NINE.  The Tacoma Rainiers have used twenty seven.  TWENTY SEVEN.  Such is the life of a minor league ballclub, to powercycle through guys as they get called up, suck and get sent down, get hurt, randomly quit, etc.

- The Rainiers have added reliever Oscar Villarreal to their bullpen.  The Mexican lefthander just got let go by the Astros, where he had pitched in 31 games with the big club, running a 5.02 ERA off 12 HR, 17 walks and 21 K in 37.2 IP.  He pitched a scoreless 8th inning in Monday's game for the Rainiers, the first minor league action he had seen since 2005.  Highlighted by a particularly busy 2006 with the Braves (92.1 IP, mostly out of the pen), Villarreal was never all that good in the bigs other than a repeated ability to miss a few more bats (and strike zones) than average, but could certainly be of use to the Rainiers in the PCL.

- Also, the injured Mumba Rivera has returned, and worked a scoreless 9th in this game as well.  The reason it was a 6-1 loss was because Joe Woerman was locating the suck pitch rather well.

With Ryan Rowland-Smith heading to the Tacoma rotation, I can think of one candidate to go to the bullpen once some of these injured Rainiers pitchers get healthy.
