This Week in the Minors

A weekly snapshot of the Cardinals minor league system.

This report covers the period from Monday, July 4th through Friday, July 15th. The period was determined by my access to a computer, to obtain needed stats, while on vacation. Next week's report will cover Saturday, July 16th through Sunday, July 24th. I will be back to a regular weekly report after that point.
A reminder for the Springfield, Palm Beach and Johnson City clubs – their current records and standings are based on the second-half of the season only but their batting and pitching statistics are season-to-date.
The changes in standing for the period - Memphis gained a half-game on Nashville. Springfield broke even and dropped from second into third place, two games behind Wichita. Palm Beach went from second to third place and dropped another half game, to two games, behind Brevard County. The Swing remain in first place, two games ahead of Kane County. New Jersey went from fifth to a tie for third place with Williamsport, four games behind Staten Island. Johnson City climbed out of last place to fourth place, nine games behind Elizabethton. The DSL Cardinals dropped from first to third place in their division.

His cumulative ERA and WHIP are 2.62 and 1.14 respectively. Currently there are no pitchers in the PCL with 100 or more innings pitched that strike out more than a batter an inning. The Fresno Grizzlies' Matt Cain is the only pitcher that is close to 100 innings pitched that strikes out more than a batter an inning - 98.2 IP and 116 SO . He has a 4.20 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. You can file this stat in the "strike outs aren't everything" category.
Tyler Johnson's line during this 11-day period: 4 G, 5.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 SO, 0.00 ERA and 0.94 ERA. Here's hoping he can keep up the good work.

Since two of the Springfield rotation received "Who's Hot" mention and two others were mentioned in the "Who's Not" section, that leaves only lefty Randy Leek not mentioned. Leek did very well – 2 GS, 2-0, 14.1 IP, 13 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 8 SO, 2.51 ERA and 1.05 WHIP

=================================================

Low-A – Swing of the Quad Cities
League Affiliation - fourteen-team Midwest League, eight-team West division
Overall Record – 15 – 7 (51 – 40)
Record Since Last Report – 7 - 4
Current Standing – First, two games in front of the Kane County Cougars (Athletics)

Current Period Team Batting - .272/.359/.421
Current Period Pitching Stats – Rotation - 4.38 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in sixty-one and two-thirds innings pitched
Current Period Pitching Stats – Bullpen - 1.45 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in thirty-seven and one-third innings pitched

Cumulative Team Batting - .267/.346/.411, fourth in the league
Cumulative Pitching - 4.17 ERA and 1.36 WHIP, fifth in the league

Who's Hot – INF Matt Shepherd went .356/.408/.511 (16-for-45) in eleven games; RHS Phillip Andersen's numbers since joining the Swing rotation- 8 G, 8 GS, 2-1, 49.2 IP, 36 H, 17 R, 13 ER, 4 HR, 17 BB, 34 SO, 2.36 ERA and 1.07 WHIP

Transactions – 07/11/05 – RHS Dennis Dove promoted to Palm Beach

Of Note -
One of the big changes for the Swing bullpen came with the arrival of 8th round, 2005 draft pick Jason Cairns. He took over the closer role from Mike Sillman who has struggled in recent weeks. The switch paid off with Cairns appearing in five games and going a perfect three-for-three in save situations. Cairns has not given up an earned run so far in his young professional career – 9 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 HR, 4 BB, 6 SO, 0.00 ERA and 0.89 WHIP. He is part of a Swing bullpen that was, for the most part, outstanding during this eleven-game span. Bo Dickerson, Wayne Lundgren, Dennis Medina, Brian Miller, Mike Sillman and Cairns combined to allow only three earned runs in thirty-three and one-third innings pitched for a 0.81 ERA and 0.75 WHIP with a 2.2:1 K/BB ratio.
Third baseman Jake Mullinax went .421/.450/.526 (8-for-19) in five games before dislocating his left ring finger on July 8th while stealing second base. Why do I know that Mullinax was sliding in head first?
Outfielder Eric Verbryke only batted .250 for the period but drove in ten runs in thirty-two at bats and had a .415 on-base percentage, due to eight walks, to go with a .594 slugging percentage. Chris Patrick's playing time increased due to the injury to Mullinax and he came through to the tune of .400/.483/.480 (10-for-25) in ten games. I gave the nod to Shepherd for the "Who's Hot" due to his twenty additional at bats. Nick Stavinoha's on-base percentage was one hundred points above his batting average for the week due to six walks. He went .263/.362/.395 (10-for-38) in eleven games.

=================================================

Short-A – New Jersey Cardinals
League Affiliation - fourteen-team New York-Penn League, six-team McNamara division
Overall Record – 12 - 12
Record Since Last Report – 7 - 4
Current Standing – Tied for third with the Williamsport Crosscutters (Pirates), four games behind the Staten Island Yankees

Current Period Team Batting - .224/.302/.337
Current Period Pitching Stats – Rotation - 1.92 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in fifty-one and two-thirds innings
Current Period Pitching Stats – Bullpen - 1.59 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in forty-five and one-third innings pitched

Cumulative Team Batting - .224/.307/.321, eleventh in the league
Cumulative Pitching - 2.61 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, first in the league

Who's Hot – Catcher Brandon Yarbrough went .333/.471/.556 (9-for-27) with six doubles and seven walks in eight games; RHS Nick Webber, 2nd round – 2005 draft, has the following line – 2 G, 2 GS, 11 H, 8 H, 3 R, 0 ER, 0 ER, 0 BB, 13 SO, 0.00 ERA and 0.73 WHIP
Who's Not – Infielder John Nelson went .125/.250/.167 (3-for-24) in seven games; RH Swingman Chris Farley's line – 2 G, 1 GS, 7.2 IP, 7 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 HR, 7 BB, 9 SO, 8.21 ERA and 1.83 WHIP

Transactions – 07/11/05 – RHS Michael Cooper promoted to Quad Cities; before 07/12/05 – Signed LHP Adam Daniels; 07/14/05 – 1B John Skorupski optioned to New Jersey;

Of Note -
The New Jersey Cardinals' pitching was simply outstanding during this period and leads the New York-Penn League. The bullpen has been particularly effective with little fanfare (at least in this column) because there are twelve pitchers on the roster that work out of the bullpen, at least part-time. That limits the amount of pitching any pitcher receives so they almost always loses out for a "Who's Hot" to a starter. So I would like to acknowledge a few bullpenners for their outstanding work so far this season: RHP Jessen Grant, 43rd round – 2005 draft, 0.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 8.1 innings pitched; RHP Cory Meacham, 35th round – 2005 draft, 0.84 ERA and 0.84 WHIP with one save in 10.2 innings pitched; RHP Matt Trent, 30th round – 2005 draft, 1.04 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with six saves in 8.2 innings pitched.
Third baseman Adam Morris went .300/.375/.450 (6-for-20) with five RBI's in six games. Shortstop Tyler Greene had an on-base percentage of .375 for the period although he hit just .250. That was due, in part, to four walks and being hit three times.

=================================================

Rookie – Johnson City Cardinals
League Affiliation - ten-team Appalachian League, five-team West division
Overall Record – 9 - 13
Record Since Last Report – 6 - 3
Current Standing – Fourth, nine games behind the Elizabethton Twins

Who's Not – OF Daryl Jones went .231/.333/.269 (6-for-26) in nine games; RHS Ryan Dixon had a bumpy transition from the bullpen to the rotation – 2 G, 2 GS, 6.1 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 2 HR, 5 BB, 6 SO, 7.11 ERA and 2.05 WHIP

Transactions – 07/05/05 – Signed RHP Kenny Maiques (37th round – 2005 draft) and RHP Tyler Leach (39th round – 2005 draft); 07/08/05 – Signed FA OF Tim Preston; 07/11/05 – 1B A.J. Van Slyke promoted to New Jersey;

Of Note -
Here are some other hot hitters for the JC Cardinals - Catcher Bryan Anderson went .412/.500/.647 (7-for-17) in six games; third baseman Randy Roth (although he's listed as a catcher, Mr. Roth has not caught a single game and has played most of the time at third) went .321/.364/.536 (9-for-28) with three doubles, one home run and seven RBI's in nine games and second baseman Jose Martinez went .333/.423/.429 (7-for-21) with two doubles and five RBI's in nine games.
Although his batting average for the period was .261, shortstop Donovan Solano got on base to the tune of .433 in eight games and twenty-three at bats. He was topped by outfielder Charles Carter who drew six walks in seven games for an on-base percentage of .448. Carter batted .286, 6-for-21.
This period saw Ryan Dixon, a June 2005 free agent signee, switch places with Matt Weagle, a 6th round-2003 draftee. Dixon went from the bullpen into the rotation and Weagle went into the bullpen. While the bullpen, as a whole, continues to struggle, the rotation really stepped up during this eleven-day span by cutting their ERA in third from the previous report. In addition to Shaun Garceau, listed above in "Who's Hot", Matthew Lane posted a 2.53 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 10.2 innings pitched.
