With Rochester carrying five catchers, it looks like Raudy Read is the backup first baseman. For some reason Brandon Snyder is listed as a catcher, but he's usually played 1B.  He started at 2nd last night.  Garcia has played SS in all 3 games.

speaking of Joan Baez, shelled for 6 runs in 2 innings last night on 6 hits and 2 walks.

As of today, both Kieboom and Garcia are hitting .200. Noll is at .245. Raudy Read and Wellington Castillo are about the top hitters on the team, unfortunately.

Kieboom has an Avila-like line  - .211 / .388 / .269, with 1 XBH (a homer).  Garcia, OTOH, has 4 HRs and a double, but is displaying a walk allergy, so his line is .219 /.282 /.422.  There's literally no one who has 30 PAs and an OPS over .800.

Almost makes one wonder if Kieboom was on some stuff and had to go off it starting last year. Makes no sense for a young guy like that to lose all his power.

Fresno. Inflates offense.  I would be curious as to whether he's hitting more ground balls or changed his k rate. Otherwise, it would be the park, I think

I remember this guy:

Quote

Gerardo Parra’s three-run, go-ahead triple propelled the Red Wings to a 7-4 win over the Syracuse Mets Wednesday night at Frontier Field.

After falling behind 4-0 after three innings, Daniel Palka’s team-leading fifth homer of the season cut the lead to 4-1.

Jake Noll started the scoring for the Wings in the six-run sixth inning with a single to left that scored Palka after the ball was bobbled. Three batters later, a bases loaded walk to Brandon Snyder cut the Syracuse lead to 4-3 and set the stage for Parra.

He took the first pitch he saw and sliced it past a diving leftfielder to give the Red Wings the 6-4 lead.

The Rochester bullpen did the rest tossing six scoreless innings of relief. Joan Baez did the heavy lifting retiring nine of the 10 batters he faced over his three-inning stint.

Wait, Parra actually took a minor league deal?

Confidence carrying him!

Otherwise, Gerardo Para looks like the real ballplayer on the team.

Keller's been in the system forever.  Lefty hitting corner outfielder.  Tall, lanky guy with no real MLB CF potential.  Nice contact swing but no lift and not likely to hit for a lot of power.  Gets hurt a lot.  If he had just a little power or could play CF solidly he'd already have gotten an MLB shot.

Keller has had a decent minor league career as a light-hitting OF with no power or speed.

I’m going to be at today’s game in Worcester. Could be interesting.


And why in the world is Worcester pronounced woo-ster?
