Adbert Alzolay Danny Barnes Jersey impresses in Triple-A debut

Here’s MLB Pipeline’s roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Friday.

Adbert Alzolay‘s 2018 season got off to a  Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 1 Aledmys Diaz Toronto Blue Jays Scarlet Canada Day Jersey Red late start, but his debut with Triple-A Iowa was certainly worth the wait.

Here’s MLB Pipeline’s roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Friday.

Adbert Alzolay‘s 2018 season got off to a late start, but his debut with Triple-A Iowa was certainly worth the wait.

After suffering an ankle injury in Spring Training, Alzolay began the 2018 campaign in extended spring training, but he was added to the Iowa roster on Friday and was lights out in a win over Nashville.

The 23-year-old, who fired 50 of his 75 pitches for strikes, was perfect through four innings and carried a no-hitter into the sixth before giving up a solo homer. However, Alzolay was able to limit the damage as that was the only run he surrendered.

The right-hander finished the sixth and was lifted after striking out six and giving up the one run on two hits.

Other top prospect performances from Friday’s action:

No. 3 overall prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Blue Jays’ No. 1) and No. 13 Bo Bichette (Blue Jays’ No. 2) provided all of the offense for Double-A New Hampshire in a loss to Reading. Guerrero went 0-for-4 at the plate, but he drove Curtis Granderson Jersey in two runs via groundouts, while Bichette, who also drove in a pair, collected two hits a day after his 10-game hitting streak came to a close.

• No. 25 overall prospect Brendan McKay (Rays’ No. 3) Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey broke out of his slump and collected a career-high four RBIs in Class A Bowling Green’s win over Lake County. McKay, who had been hitless over his past four games (11 at-bats), went 2-for-4, including RBI hits in the seventh and eighth.

• No. 55 overall prospect Matt Manning (Tigers’ No. 2) got off to a particularly fast start in his 2018 debut with Class A West Michigan. Manning, a first-round pick from the 2016 Draft, struck out nine batters over the first three innings, including eight in a row, and ultim Danny Barnes Jersey ately finished with 10, a career high. However, after cruising through three innings, Manning ran into tro Teoscar Hernandez Jersey uble in the fourth and was lifted after giving up three runs on two hits and three walks in 3 2/3 innings.

Manning notches 10th K

• No. 62 overall prospect Jo Adell (Angels’ No. 2) and Brandon Marsh (Angels’ No. 5) were at the center of Class A Burlington’s offensive explosion in a 28-7 win over Quad Cities. The duo, hitting third and fourth in the Bees’ lineup, combined to go 6-for-11 with 15 RBIs and six runs scored. Adell went 4-for-6 with a double, a grand slam and eight RBIs, while Marsh drove in seven and also hit a grand slam in a 2-for-5 effort.

Athletics’ No. 6 prospect Austin Beck hit his first homer of the season and posted another multi-hit performance, going 2-for-5 with three RBIs for Class A Beloit. Beck, the A’s first-round pick from 2017, has an RBI in three straight games and five hits in his past 10 at-bats.

Brewers No. 4 prospect Lucas Erceg pushed his average to .362 and set a season high with four hits (4-for-5) in Double-A Biloxi’s win over Mobile. The 22-year-old also drove in four runs via a solo homer in the first, a two-run single in the fifth and a base hit in the eighth.

Cardinals No. 25 prospect Johan Oviedo spun his best start of the season for Class A Peoria. After giving up nine runs in five innings over his first two starts, Oviedo threw six scoreless in a win over Wisconsin. The right-hander struggled with command — walking five — but notched eight strikeouts and gave up just three hits.

Indians No. 20 prospect Eric Haase extended his hitting streak to five games with his first homer of the season, a three-run blast, in the first inning of Triple-A Columbus’ loss to Rochester. Haase, who is batting .341 through 11 games, added a pair of singles later in the game, finishing 3-for-4.

Nationals No. 4 prospect Erick Fedde lowered his ERA to 1.80 with his second scoreless start for Triple-A Syracuse. Fedde, who yielded ju Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Authentic 18 Curtis Granderson Canada Day Red Scarlet Flex Base Jersey st two hits, retired 11 of the first 12 batters he faced as he cruised through five scoreless frames. The 25-year-old threw 40 of his 75 pitches for strikes, walked one and struck out seven.

Marlins No. 11 prospect Brian Miller matched his career high with four hits for Class A Advanced Jupiter. Batting atop the Hammerheads order, Miller, who went 4-for-5, has hits in 11 of the 13 games he’s played and is slashing .311/.354/.361.

Phillies No. 23 prospect McKenzie Mills put together a Luke Maile Jersey nother strong start for Class A Advanced Clearwater. The 22-year-old lefty gave up one run on three hits over seven innings and has now fanned 10 and Curtis Granderson Jersey given up two runs over his past 13 frames (two starts).

Kyle Wr Danny Barnes Jersey ight notches first Double-A win

Here’s MLB Pipeline’s roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Saturday.

Kyle Wright had shown flashes of excellence early in his Teoscar Hernandez Jersey first Double-A campaign before putting it all together Saturday night in his finest performance as a pro.

Here’s MLB Pipeline’s roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Saturday.

Kyle Wright had shown flashes of excellence early in his first Double-A campaign before putting it all together Saturday night in his finest performance as a pro.

Wright, Atlanta’s No. 2 prospect (No. 30 overall), turned in a career-long outing, tossing six-plus scoreless innings of one-hit ball to lead Double-A Mississippi past Mobile, 3-1. He issued two walks and struck out four, throwing 52 of his 84 pitches for strikes.

The two-out hit Wright allowed in the first inning was the only real blemish in his performance. He proceeded to retire 15 of the next 16 batters before departing the game in the seventh inning, after he had issued a leadoff walk to Matt Thaiss (An Luke Maile Jersey gels’ No. 9). A pair of M-Braves relievers handled the final three innings to help secure Wright’s first win at the Double-A level.

Wright retires 15 of 16 batters

The 2017 first-rounder (No. 5 overall pick) scuffled in his previous turn, allowing four earned runs in just one inning after posting 7 2/3 scoreless frames across his first two M-Braves starts. Overall, Wright, 22, owns a 2.45 ERA on the season, with 14 strikeouts and nine walks in 14 2/3 innings.

Austin Riley (Braves’ No. 8, No. 97 overall) did his part to support Wright’s cause by going 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI. The 21-year-old third baseman is already up to eight doubles this season in 16 games, during which he’s hitting .386/.435/.754 with 11 runs sco Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Authentic 18 Curtis Granderson Canada Day Red Scarlet Flex Base Jersey red and 14 RBIs.

The rest of the best performances from top prospects Saturday

No. 15 overall prospect Mitch Keller (Pirates’ No. 1) completed a season-high seven innings to pick up his second win for Double-A Altoona. The 22-year-old right-hander wasn’t at his sharpest, allowing three earned runs on six hits and three walks, though he still struck out seven and generated another eight outs on the ground. Jason Martin (No. 22) delivered his first home run, a two-run shot in the second inning, and later added a double to finish the game 3-for-4 with three runs.

No. 20 overall prospect Royce Lewis (Twins’ No. 1) lifted his average from .222 to .323 for Class A Cedar Rapids behind a perfect 4-for-4 performance. The four hits, all singles, matched the 2017 No. 1 overall Draft pick’s career-high mark. He also scored two runs and swiped his second base as the Kernels fell to Kane County, 9-2.

Lewis notches fourth hit

No. 25 overall prospect Brendan McKay (Rays’ No. 3) fired four scoreless innings, allowing two hits and no walks with seven strikeouts in a no-decision for Class A Bowling Green. He threw 84.4 percent of his pitches (38 of 45) for strikes in the dominant performance and now owns a 2.00 ERA with 15 strikeouts and four hits allowed in nine innings (three starts) this season. At the plate, meanwhile, the two-way star is hitting .346/.546/.385  Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey with 10 RBIs and an absurd 13-to-3 walk-to-strikeout ratio.

• There’s no stopping No. 29 overall prospect Juan Soto. The Nationals’ No. 2 prospect belted his fifth home run, a three-run shot, as well as his third triple as he recorded multiple hits for the fourth time in five games for Class A Hagerstown. Through 15 games, the 19-year-old outfielder is slashing .389/.507/.870 with 13 extra-base hits, 24 RBIs and more walks (15) than strikeouts (11).

Soto crushes three-run homer

No. 74 overall prospect Jon Duplantier (D-backs’ No. 1) worked five strong innings as he picked up the win for Jackson in his season debut. It also marked the Double-A debut for the 23-year-old righty, who allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out six. The 2017 MLB Pipeline Pitcher of the Year had opened the season on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

Duplantier fans six in AA debut

No. 96 overall prospect Brandon Woodruff (Brewers’ No. 3) allowed just one earned run while completing at least five innings for a third straight start for Triple-A Colorado Springs. The 25-year-old righty tallied a season-high seven strikeouts while scattering three hits with one walk in five innings. He’s pitched to a 1.65 ERA in 16 1/3 innings since being demoted to Triple-A on April 7.

• After giving up a combined 19 hits in his previous two starts, Marlins No. 13 prospect Zac Gallen allowed just four hits in seven scoreless innings Saturday as Triple-A New Orleans defeated Oklahoma City, 2-0. The 22-year-old righty compiled five strikeouts against three walks in the outing while finding the strike zone with 58 of his 91 pitches. Gallen has completed at least six innings in three of his four starts this season.

Gallen strikes out five

Padres No. 11 prospect Esteury Ruiz and Tirso Ornelas (No. 14) both connected on their second home run of 2018 and collected three hits as Class A Fort Wayne defeated Dayton, 8-2. Ruiz, 19, hit a two-run shot in the sixth inning before finishing 3-for-5, while the 18-year-old Ornelas finished 3-for-4 after hitting a three-run homer in his first at-bat. Leadoff man Danny Barnes Jersey  Jeisson Rosario (No. 18) paced the TinCaps with three runs as he improved his average to .310 with his second multi-hit game in as many days.

Pirates No. 16 prospect Calvin Mitchell boosted his average to .371 with his fourth straight multi-hit game for Class A West Virginia. The 2017 second-rounder tallied his third triple this season before finishing with four hits and four RBIs, both matching his career bests. Braeden Ogle (No. 28) paced the Power on the mound, tossing six innings of one-run ball with eight strikeouts in the 13-8 victory. He allowed six hits and walked three, throwing 54 of his 87 pitches for strikes in the outing.

Red Sox No. 15 prospect Jalen Beeks piled up 10 strikeouts in six scoreless innings as Triple-A Pawtucket blanked Gwinnett, 6-0. The 24-year-old left-hander allowed two hits, two walks and hit one batter while throwing 59 of his 98 pitches for strikes. Beeks has dominated early Curtis Granderson Jersey this season, posting a 0.64 ERA with 26 strikeouts and five walks in 14 innings (three starts).

Yelich, Braun, Shaw create bi Danny Barnes Jersey g inning

MILWAUKEE — Three pitches, three batters, and another Danny Barnes Jersey good night’s sleep for Brewers hitting coach Darnell Coles.

Coles had been restless amid the Brewers’ sluggish start at the plate, but scoring 20 runs in two games should help. After a 12-run outburst in Thursday’s series opener against Miami, Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw connected for RBI hits on consecutive pitches in the fourth inning Friday to fuel Jhoulys Chacin‘s first Brewers win, 8-0 over the Marlins at Miller Park.

MILWAUKEE — Three pitches, three batters, and another good night’s sleep for Brewers hitting coach Darnell Coles.

Coles had been restless amid the Brewers’ sluggish start at the plate, but scoring 20 runs in two games should help. After a 12-run outburst in Thursday’s series opener against Miami, Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw connected for RBI hits on consecutive pitches in the fourth inning Friday to fuel Jhoulys Chacin‘s first Brewers win, 8-0 over the Marlins at Miller Park.

It was the Brewers’ fourth straight victory. Three have been shutouts.

“I think everything is going to start getting together for us,” Chacin said. “We know the offense we have.”

Video: MIA@MIL: Chacin goes six scoreless innings, K’s five

That offense struck quickly against Marl Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 1 Aledmys Diaz Toronto Blue Jays Scarlet Canada Day Jersey Red ins right-hander Trevor Richards. Lorenzo Cain extended the fourth inning with a two-out walk and Yelich hit the next pitch for an RBI triple before Braun and Shaw smashed back-to-back first-pitch home runs.

In Curtis Granderson Jersey  a span of three pitches, all with two outs, a 1-0 Brewers lead had grown to 5-0. It would be 6-0 before the inning was over, and when the game was over, the Brewers had won consecutive games by at least an eight-run margin for the first time since July 31-Aug. 1, 2012.

That made things more comfortable for Chacin, who entered his fifth Brewers start with a 5.60 ERA but pitched six scoreless innings for the win. Dan Jennings, Taylor Williams and Oliver Drake completed the shutout, with Drake coming in with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth to engineer an escape.

Asked about the offense, Brewers manager Craig Counsell first praised the pitching.

“I don’t mean to contradict you,” Counsell said, “but I think it’s important when we throw shutouts to [say] we pitched a heck of a game. The offense, again, we put pressure on the starting pitcher, and it started with Cain and Yelich and their at-bats.”

Video: MIA@MIL: Williams strikes out Bour, side in 8th

Counsell’s first five hitters — Cain, Yelich, Braun, Shaw and Eric Thames — combined to reach safely 16 times while scoring all eight runs. Those five also combined for seven of the Brewers’ season-high eight walks. Cain, Yelich and Braun scored two runs apiece, while Shaw finished with three hits and two RBIs.

“[Cain’s] at-bat in the fourth inning, it was two outs, nobody on. He’s down in the count, two strikes, and he battles a walk,” Counsell said. “All of a sudden, we’ve got a five-spot up here. We made it tough on the opposing guy.”

Cain has been doing that a lot. With that walk, Cain, who was slowed during the Brewers’ last road trip by a minor calf injury, had reached base in nine of his last 10 plate appearances.

Yelich reached safely in six straight plate appearances over the past two games before grounding out in his final at-bat Friday.

Before this series against the Marlins, Cain and Yelich had not be Luke Maile Jersey en in the lineup together since April 3, the day Yelich exited with a right oblique injury that would land him on the disabled list.

“What two good hitters at the top of your lineup do to the other team, it makes it tough when you’ve got the middle-of-the-lineup guys coming up,” Counsell said. “You sneak by once, or something like that, but they’re going to get you eventually.”

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED

Back-to-back: Braun and Shaw teamed for the Brewers’ third set of consecutive home runs this season, and second in as many nights. Braun has been involved in all three of them Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey , and five of his first 13 hits this season cleared the fence. The last time the Brewers hit back-to-back home runs each on the first pitch was Sept. 1, 2014, at Wrigley Field, when Khris Da Teoscar Hernandez Jersey vis and Gerardo Parra connected against the Cubs.

“I felt this since the Cincinnati series,” said Shaw, who has reached safely four times in each of the last two games. “I was kind of waiting for it to finally happen. Tonight was a good night at the plate.”

ARCIA EXITS
A good night took a scary turn for the Brewers in the eighth inning, when shortstop Orlando Arcia had to leave the game after turning his right ankle. X-rays were negative after Arcia rounded too far past first base and had to hustle in vain back to the bag. He was helped off the field by a member of Milwaukee’s athletic training staff.

Video: MIA@MIL: Arcia singles, leaves game with injury

YOU GOTTA SEE THIS
An inning earlier, Arcia’s speed was on display when he made a sensational over-the-shoulder catch in shallow right field to rob J.B. Shuck of a hit. Arcia made the catch at full speed with his left arm fully extended for the first out of Jennings’ scoreless inning.

“The way he just plucked his glove out there, it was pretty incredible,” Counsell said. “One of his better plays, for sure.”

Video: MIA@MIL: Arcia runs back, reaches out for the catch

HE SAID IT
“We should be doing this, but at the same time you still have to go out there and win. What would you guys be saying if we lose these games?” — Shaw, on the Brewers’ wins coming against the last-place Reds and Marlins

UP NEXT
Left-hander Brent Suter will be seeking his first quality start when he takes the mound Saturday at 6:10 p.m. CT for his fifth start of the season. There may be some added urgency for Suter (4.87 ERA) to perform, since the Brewers’ other starting pitcher with options, Junior Guerra, has pitched beautifully in a pair of starts, and Wade Miley is returning to health in the Minor Leagues. Suter has never faced the Marlins.

Jesus Aguilar wins game with Danny Barnes Jersey walk-off homer

MILWAUKEE — Jesus Aguilar‘s epic at-bat leading off the bottom of the ninth inning on Saturday was so long, Brewers manager Craig Counsell almost forgot it began with two strikes.

And it was so good, with Aguilar flicking seven two-strike fouls before crushing the 13th pitch from Marlins reliever Junichi Tazawa for a walk-off home run and a 6-5 Brewers win at Miller Park, that Aguilar could proudly say he’d never had a better at-bat.

MILWAUKEE — Jesus Aguilar‘s epic at-bat leading off the bottom of the ninth inning on Saturday was so long, Brewers manager Craig Counsell almost forgot it began with two strikes.

And it was so good, with Aguilar flicking seven two-strike fouls before crushing the 13th pitch from Marlins reliever Junichi Tazawa for a walk-off home run and a 6-5 Brewers win at Miller Park, that Aguilar could proudly say he’d never had a better at-bat.

“Not even in Nintendo,” Aguilar said, adding in English, “I feel like a superstar right now.”

Said Counsell: “I’ve never seen anything better than that.”

Video: MIA@MIL: Counsell discusses Aguilar, walk-off victory

Maybe that hyperbole was warranted after a player who didn’t enter the game until a double-switch in the top of the ninth inning delivered baseball’s most exhausting walk-off home run in 21 years. The last player to work that hard for a walk-off homer was Garret Anderson of the Angels, who hit a three-run shot on the 13th pitch to beat the Twins on Sept. 15, 1997.

Before Aguilar connected, Travis Shaw homered for the second straight day, walked twice and scored three runs, including the tying tally with two outs in the eighth inning on a stunning Marlins misplay. The Brewers’ victory was their fifth in a row.

Video: MIA@MIL: Shaw lifts a solo homer to left-center

Aguilar had been warm for a while, since he’d been told to be ready to pinch-hit for Brewers starter Brent Suter earlier in the game. That opportunity never came, so Aguilar waited while the Brewers chipped away at a 4-0 deficit while four relievers pitched four more scoreless innings.

It was the Brewers’ third walk-off win this season and their second walk-off homer. Ryan Braun beat the Cardinals with one on April 3.

“I knew he threw a lot of offspeed, so I was just trying to stay back on it,” Aguilar said. “At the end, in my mind I knew it was a battle between me and him. I just tried to get a pitch I could drive.”

Video: MIA@MIL: Aguilar talks about his walk-off home run

He got it.

“It’s crazy what he continues to do, coming off the bench like that,” Shaw said. “That’s an a Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Authentic 18 Curtis Granderson Canada Day Red Scarlet Flex Base Jersey mazing at-bat. It was a bomb, too. He said he was looking for something else and then just reacted to that pitch. I mean, to react and hit a ball like that is pretty good”

Aguilar nearly missed the Brewers’ Opening Day cut because they have so many first basemen, especially with Braun starting the season as an option there. Instead, Aguilar leads the team in 35 plate appearances with a .490 weighted on-base average and 212 weighted runs created plus. The home run was his first this season after he hit 16 in 279 at-bats a year ago.

“This is what he’s shown he has the ability to do,” Counsell said. “Often his days are just one at-bat. I think he’s become a force off the bench as a pinch-hitter in the National League. I don’t know a guy around the league who’s more dangerous.”

Jacob Barnes, Josh Hader, Matt Albers and Jeremy Jeffress each pitched a scoreless inning to give the Brewers offense a chance to stage a comeback after Lewis Brinson‘s third home run of the series, a three-run shot off Suter, helped Miami take a 4-0 lead in the second inning. Milwaukee’s relievers haven’t allowed a run in their last 17 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and three walks with 21 strikeouts during the streak.

“It was really effective work by the bullpen,” Suter said. “They’re just continuing to be a unit out there. Those are guys who  Curtis Granderson Jersey pitch for each other. There’s a lot of love out there in the bullpen. What a great win to be a part of.”

Video: MIA@MIL: Suter K’s Anderson to end the inning

MOMENT THAT M Danny Barnes Jersey ATTERED
The Brewers faced a 5-4 deficit in the eighth when Shaw worked a two out walk from Kyle Barraclough, giving Shaw 12 walks this season to tie Lorenzo Cain‘s team lead. Eric Thames followed with another free pass before Eric Sogard hit a popup to shallow left field that was so playable, Counsell looked down at his lineup card to prepare for the next inning. Several Marlins converged, including left fielder Derek Dietrich, who missed it. Shaw scored, but Thames was out at the plate thanks to a strong throw from former Brewers infielder Yadiel Rivera to catcher Bryan Holaday, who made a terrific play to tag Thames on the leg before he could score the go-ahead run.

“I bet if that happens 100 times, [Dietrich] catches it 99 times,” Shaw said. “It’s so high, too, that multiple people have an opportunity at it. You would never guess that.”

Video: MIA@MIL: Shaw scores the tying run on fielding error

Said Thames: “It was just weird. I saw Dietrich [stagger], and then I almost missed the bag. Then I was going and I had no idea where the ball was. Usually, on a base hit, you know where the ball was and you know you’re going to have to get dirty, hook slide, something like that. I had no idea.”

Dietrich initially was charged with an error before the official scorer changed the play to a double and RBI for Sogard. Dietrich took the blame.

“I called the ball and I dropped it,” Dietrich said. “That one’s on me. Unfortunately, that [stinks] because [Marlins starter Jose Urena] pitched well and [Barraclough] did his job so that one’s on me.”

SOUND SMART
The Brewers cut the deficit to 4-3 by scoring two runs in a fourth-inning rally that began with Ryan Braun’s double to center field. It was Braun’s 700th career extra-base hit, tying him with Bobby Bonds for 188th all time, and his next targets include some former Brewers. Dante Bichette (and former Reds great George Foster) collected Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey  702 extra-base hits, and Cecil Cooper had 703. Milwaukee Braves and Brewers legend Hank Aaron is the all-time leader, of course, with 1,477 extra-base hits.

HE SAID IT
“We’ll go half and half.” — Aguilar, joking about sharing a new Toyota Highlander with one lucky Brewers fan after he nearly hit the vehicle perched above Miller Park’s outfield concourse. If a Brewers player hits that truck on the fly, a fan wins it, courtesy of Wisconsin Toyota Dealers. But a Brewers spokesperson said they had video evidence and an eye witness saying Aguilar missed by a few feet.

Junior Guerra has a 0.82 ERA in two excellent st Teoscar Hernandez Jersey arts following a promotion from Triple-A Colorado Springs, and will try to make it three in a row in Sunday’s 1:10 p.m. CT series finale against the Marlins.

Corey Kneb Danny Barnes Jersey el, Boone Logan throw on Saturday

MILWAUKEE — Brewers closer Corey Knebel was back pitching on a mound Saturday sooner than expected, but the club will be especially cautious during this phase of his Luke Maile Jersey comeback from a left hamstring injury, manager Craig Counsell said.

“He will throw more bullpens because this is where the injury happened,” said Counsell, referencing Knebel going Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey down after throwing a pitch against the Cubs on April 5. “We’ll go a little slower in this segment of it.

MILWAUKEE — Brewers closer Corey Knebel was back pitching on a mound Saturday sooner than expected, but the club will be especially cautious during this phase of his comeback from a left hamstring injury, manager Craig Counsell said.

“He will throw Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 57 Jaime Garcia Toronto Blue Jays Scarlet Canada Day Jersey Red  more bullpens because this is where the injury happened,” said Counsell, referencing Knebel going down after throwing a pitch against the Cubs on April 5. “We’ll go a little slower in this segment of it.

View Full Game Coverage

“But he saw the doctor [Friday] and the doctor green-lighted him throwing on the mound. So progress has been great so far.”

Asked whether Knebel’s mound session went well, Counsell said, “He walked off with a big smile, so, yeah.”

Video: CHC@MIL: Knebel exits game with apparent leg injury

Knebel threw one of two notable bullpen sessions Saturday. Left-hander Boone Logan threw 25 pitches, including some sliders, in the other, his second ‘pen since suffering a left triceps strain in Spring Training. The next step is to face hitters on Tuesday in a simulated game.

“If that goes well, ship me out,” Logan said.

Out for a Minor League rehab assignment, that is. The Brewers will probably test Logan in back-to-back outings in the Minors, which means Logan is likely to make at least 3-4 appearances before reinstatement to the Major League roster is in play.

Counsell didn’t reveal a firm timetable for either Knebel or Logan returning to active duty for the Brewers.

Arcia sits
Shortstop Orlando Arcia said he could play if needed, but he was held out of batting practice and the starting Curtis Granderson Jersey lineup a day after rolling his ankle while hustling back to first base after an eighth-inning single in Friday’s win over the Marlins.

Video: MIA@MIL: Arcia singles, leaves game with injury

With an off-day coming Monday before the Brewers begin a three-city road trip in Kansas City, Arcia might find himself on the bench again for Sunday’s series finale against Miami.

“I don’t think we’re completely out of the woods yet,” Counsell said. “We’ll give him at least today, and then we’ll see how he’s doing going into that off-day. … We’re going to give it a day or Teoscar Hernandez Jersey  two and see how he progresses. Is he going to be ready for t Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Authentic 18 Curtis Granderson Canada Day Red Scarlet Flex Base Jersey he Kansas City series? That’s what we’d say.”

Arcia was optimistic he wouldn’t have to wait that long.

“I’m ready to play,” he said. “That’s the manager’s decision. If it were up to me, I would play [Sunday], but the manager makes the decision.”

Pro Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey spects Keston Hiura, Corbin Burnes impress

Here’s MLB Pipeline’s roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Thursday.

The Brewers’ top two prospects showed a bit of why they are so highly-touted on Thursday night.

Here’s MLB Pipeline’s roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Thursday.

The Brewers’ top two prospects showed a bit of why they are so highly-touted on Thursday night.

Milwaukee’s No. 1 prospect Keston Hiura (No. 56 overall) hit his first homer of the season in a 2-for-5 showing with Class A Advanced Carolina while Corbin Burnes Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap (Brewers’ No. 2, No. 69 overall) spun a scoreless start and picked up the win for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Hiura, who hit .371 in 42 games after he was picked in the first round a season ago, got off to a slow start this season, but he appears to be finding his rhythm. The 21-year-old has hits in four of his past five games, raising his average from .143 to .220 Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey  over that timeframe.

Hiura’s first homer of 2018

Burnes was impressive from start to finish as he struck out the side in the first inning, setting the tone for things to come. The right-hander notched at least one strikeout in five of his first six innings, ultimately finishing with nine.

Burnes faced one batter in the seventh, got a flyout, then was lifted after yielding three hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Burnes rings up ninth strikeout

Other top prospect performances from Thursday’s action:

• No. 3 overall prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Blue Jays’ No. 1) is hitting .362/.411/.596 after going 2-for-4 with Double-A New Hampshire. Guerrero has hits in 10 of 12 games this season and has notched multiple hits in five of his past six games. While Guerrero was contributing on the offensive end, Jordan Romano (No. 27) kept Binghamton in check with seven innings of one-run ball.

• No. 23 overall prospect Austin Hays (Orioles’ No. 1) was responsible for half of Double-A Bowie’s offense in a 6-1 win over Richmond. Hays finished just 1-for-4, but he drove in three runs via a sacrifice fly in the first and a two-run homer in the ninth. Cedric Mullins (Orioles’ No. 7) collected a season-high three hits, going 3-for-5, and Keegan Akin (Orioles’ No. 9) picked up his first win of the year as he struck out seven over six innings of one-run ball.

Hays goes the other way

• No. 38 overall prospect Jack Flaherty (Cardinals’ No. 2) spun the first complete game of his career (seven innings) and moved to 3-0 as he led Triple-A Memphis to a win over Omaha in Game 1 of a doubleheader. The 22-year-old right hander gave up two runs (one earned) on two hits and struck out six while throwing 67 of his 95 pitches for strikes.

Flaherty finishes complete game

• No. 97 overall prospect Austin Riley (Braves’ No. 8) is swinging a scorching-hot bat for Double-A Mississippi. The 2 Men’s 1985 Chicago Bears 34 Walter Payton Mitchell and Ness Authentic Throwback Navy Blue Jersey 1-year-old, who went 3-for-3, is hitting .408 after his fourth straight multi-hit effort. Over those four games, Riley is 10-for-15 with six extra-base hits and five RBIs.

• No. 99 overall prospect Blake Rutherford (White Sox No. 7) continued his hot start and extended his hitting streak to six games, going 4-for-5 with Class A Advanced Winston-Salem. Rutherford, who is batting .404 through 11 games, also set a career high with four RBIs. Micker Adolfo (No. 10) also contributed to the win, hitting his third homer of the year.

Rutherford’s two-run single

Athletics No. 8 prospect Sean Murphy pushed his average to .409 with his fourth consecutive multi-hit performance for Double-A Midland. Murphy, who hit just .209 in 53 games with Midland last season, went 4-for-5 and is off to a particularly fast start at the plate. The 23-year-old has hits in nine of the 11 games he’s played in and has also racked up nine RBIs.

Murphy knocks out four hits

• Braves No. 10 prospect Joey Wentz was once again dominant for Class A Advanced Florida. Wentz retired the first five batters he faced on his way toward hurling five scoreless innings. The 20-year-old hasn’t given up a run in either of his past two starts (10 innings) and has allowed just one run all season. Wentz struck out six, including the final two batters he faced, and has now fanned 15 in 14 innings.

Cubs No. 3 prospect Oscar De La Cruz bounced back from a couple rough starts to spin a gem for Double-A Tennessee. The right-hander gave up 11 earned runs over six innings in his first two starts, but he showed no signs of struggle against Montgomery. De La Cruz dominated through six scoreless frames, surrendering just one hit and striking out six.

De La Cruz fans six

• Pirates prospects Calvin Mitchell (No. 16) and Travis MacGregor (No. 25) led Class A West Virginia to a 3-0 win over Asheville. Mitchell, who finished 2-for-4, provided all the offense with a three-run homer in the third while MacGregor did his part by pitching six scoreless innings. MacGregor, who struck out six and yielded three hits, has given up just one earned run over three starts this season.

Red Sox No. 11 prospect Josh Ockimey picked the perfect time — waiting until the bases were loaded — to hit his first homer of the season. The 22-year-old went 3-for-4 for Double-A Portland and put the game out of reach with a grand slam in the seventh.

Royals No. 25 prospect Chase Vallot snapped an 0-for-17 skid with a first-inning grand slam for Class A Advanced Wilmington. Vallot picked up a fifth RBI via a bases-loaded walk in the fourth, but is still having a tough time at the plate as he finished 1-for-5.

Angels No.  Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey 29 pr Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap ospect Joe Gatto gave up five runs in three innings in his last start with Class A Advanced Inland Empire, but he bounced back in a big way against Lancaster. The 22-year-old right-hander fired 53 of his 79 pitches for strikes as he struck out Men’s 1994 Miami Dolphins 13 Dan Marino 75th Anniversary Aqua Authentic Throwback Jersey nine and yielded three hits over six scoreless frames. Gatto struck out the side in the first and notched at least one strikeout in five of his six innings.

“I think you’re able to enjoy it a little bit more than a Men’s 1994 Miami Dolphins 13 Dan Marino 75th Anniversary Aqua Authentic Throwback Jersey broken bat groundout or something like that,” Braun said. “It was definitely a cool way to accomplish a pretty special number.”

He’s the ninth active player and the 284th in Major League history to get to that plateau, matching Darryl Strawberry’s career mark. Braun was already second in Brewers history to Robin Yount’s 1,406 career RBIs.

Braun was limited to bench duty for a second straight game on Thursday because of a sore right calf, and he’s also missed time recently with back stiffness. But he remains a threat, with four of his first 12 hits this season clearing the fence, including a pair of go-ahead home runs in the ninth inning.

He said he  Men’s 1994 Miami Dolphins 13 Dan Marino 75th Anniversary Aqua Authentic Throwback Jersey expects to be back in the Brewers’ lineup when the series continues Friday.

“I’ve said many times that the biggest challenge in this game is longevity and consistency,” Braun said. “You can’t get to a number like that unless you’ve played for a while and had consistent success.

Video: MIA@MIL: Braun on reaching 1,000 career RBIs

“It also speaks to being fortunate to be on a lot of really good offensive teams. It’s a result of having really good teammates and getting a ton of opportunities. For five or six years, I had Prince Fielder hitting behind me, so people never wanted to walk me to get to him. You’re just getting a lot of opportunity.”

Thursday’s clout was Braun’s second career pinch-hit home run, and both have come against the Marlins. The other was a game-winning two-run shot in the ninth in Miami on June 3, 2011.

“It’s 300 homers, 1000 RBIs now. Big, round numbers,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “You’re starting to get into what I think of as the longevity numbers. You have to be around and productive for quite a long time to start reaching these milestones.”

“For one, you have to play a long time to reach that goal,” Brewers center fielder Lorenzo Cain said. “He’s been a consistent, great hitter his entire career. I’m happy for him. W Men’s 1985 Chicago Bears 34 Walter Payton Mitchell and Ness Authentic Throwback Navy Blue Jersey e definitely need him to get to where we want to be. This is going to be a fun ride.”

“I wasn’t going nowhere last night,” Brinson said with a laugh.

There were handshakes and hugs for both players on Thursday, when the Br Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap ewers and Marlins met under the dome at Miller Park for the start of a four-game series.

It’s too early to analyze the trade, in part because the Marlins made the deal with the future in mind, and because this season has not begun the way Yelich nor Brinson would have liked. Brinson, who spent a season and a half as the Brewers’ top prospect and made his Major League debut for Milwaukee last June, entered his homecoming in a 1-for-36 funk. Yelich has spent most of his first three weeks of his regular-season Brewers tenure on the disabled list with a right oblique injury.

• Marlins’ Top 30 prospects

Yelich returned to Milwaukee’s lineup on Wednesday against the Reds, boosting his early-season on-base percentage to .452 with a hit and a pair of walks while making a circus catch in his first start in center field for the Brewers. A day later, he spent time amid a gaggle of Marlins stretching on the field while Milwaukee finished batting practice.

“I’m obviously close with some of the guys over there,” Yelich said. “We’ve been through some stuff. But I don’t see it being any different or feeling any different during the games. It will be business as usual.”

The Marlins are catching the Brewers on the back end of a spate of injuries. Yelich’s oblique was the biggest setback so far, but Eric Thames (groin), Ryan Braun (back) and primary catcher Manny Pina have also missed games for a team that entered the series 26th in the Majors with 3.37 runs per game. Pina will miss the series, but Thames and Yelich are back and Braun is getting close, having taken batting practice on Thursday.

“It’s been tough on us with injuries,” Yelich said. “That’s part of baseball season. It’s going to happen. It just happened for us out of the gate. But I think we did a good job of being able to weather it and getting through it as best we could.”

Brinson is also getting through it, and he took a big step forward on Thursday. After not starting either of the Marlins’ games on Monday and Tuesday at Yankee Stadium, Brinson hit a pair of home runs to center field off Brewers starter Chase Anderson in his first two at-bats of the series opener.

“Obviously, I was over there last year, and now, I’m with a different team,” Brinson said before the game. “Same mindset, kind of thing. Go out there, play hard, play my game. Get it going a little bit and help my team win.

“It’s going to be good playing against some guys I played with last year, but at the same time, when you step between those lines, it’s time to battle. I look forward to that.”

Video: MIA@MIL: Lewis Brinson discusses his recent struggles

Even with Brinson’s struggles, the Marlins are giving their top prospect every chance to succeed without being optioned to the Minors.

Last Friday, before the Marlins faced the Mets in Miami, Derek Jeter, the team’s chief executive officer, watched batting practice from the field. Brinson spoke briefly with Jeter.

“Just keep swinging. It will come,” Brinson said Jeter told him. “‘There’s a reason why you’re up here’ type of conversation. He has total confidence in me, and obviously, a great guy to talk to. Him being the figure he is, just to have him around, around the cage and speaking to us, and being very open about everything, it means a lo Men’s 1994 Miami Dolphins 13 Dan Marino 75th Anniversary Aqua Authentic Throwback Jersey t. His words are very encouraging. He told me to keep swinging.”

While Brinson works on adjustments with Miami, Yelich is making them in snowy Milwaukee.

“It’s been a little different from Miami or Southern California, where I grew up,” Yelich said. “But it’s been a fun and unique experience. People are saying it doesn’t usually snow this much this time of year. Luckily, we have the dome.”

Aguilar’s bat to keep Ryan Br Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey aun in outfield

MILWAUKEE — The Ryan Braun-at-first base idea isn’t exactly dead, but it is on hold while the Brewers ride Jesus Aguilar‘s productive April.

Braun has not appeared at first base since starting the first two games of the regular season there, in part because Christian Yelich‘s oblique injury meant Braun has been needed in the outfield. That left last year’s duo of Eric Thames and Aguilar to cover the position, and they capitalized by combining to hit .324 with seven home runs, all from Thames, from Game No. 3 of the season through Game No. 20 on Thursday night.

Overall, Aguilar (1.0 Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap 37) and Thames (1.013) entered Friday’s game leading the Brewers in OPS, and their first basemen, including Braun, led the Majors by more than 100 points with a .684 slugging percentage and also led with a .431 weighted on-base average.

“From my perspective, they’ve both picked up where they left off,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “They were both very productive last year, and they’re off to very productive starts this year. Nothing has really changed from that perspective. We went in with a little different plan, and through some injuries and stuff, things have changed. Jesus has really taken advantage of that.”

Even with the preseason plan of using Braun at first base against left-handers, Thames was going to get his at-bats against right-handers. Aguilar, however, was unsure whether he would make the Opening Day roster, much less get regular playing time.

But including a three-hit effort Thursday that included a pair of doubles, he leads the Brewers with a .456 wOBA.

“Look, Jesus is certainly earning at-bats,” Counsell said.

Video: MIA@MIL: Aguilar lines RBI double to left

Of the plan for Braun to play some first base, Counsell said, “It was best-laid plans, but the plan never happened. You have to keep your options open a little bit and understand that you don’t know what’s going to happen the next day sometimes. That’s why [a player’s] outlook and attitude are important, because it can change on a dime.

“When opportunity hits, you have to be ready for it.”

Progress for Pina
Catcher Manny Pina tested his right calf injury with some pregame baserunning Friday, under the watch of Counsell, third-base coach Ed Sedar and assistant athletic trainer Rafael Freitas. Pina is eligible for reinstatement from the 10-day disabled list on Monday, an off-day before a three-city road trip.

Pina should come off the DL at some point during that trip, Counsell said.

“He did well. He did really well,” Counsell said. “He probably ran at 80-85 percent. We put him through a pretty good test. Probably o Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey ne more series of tests, but we’re really pointing at good signs. … I don’t know if I’ll commit today to that first day [of the road trip], but he is on track to be ready for that road trip.”

The Brewers’ other injured catcher, Step Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey hen Vogt, is also making progress from a strained right shoulder. Barring a setback, he is expected to head to Arizona sometime during the Brewers’ road trip to compile at-bats in extended spring training before a Minor League rehab assignment with stops at Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Colorado Springs.

At the moment, it appears Vogt will hit the original Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap target of being Major League-ready by the second week of May. At that point, the Brewers will face some decisions with their catching corps.
