MadFriars Daily Farm Report: May 6

Albert Einstein quoted insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. At some point that has to be what the Padres' brass are thinking with Franchy Cordero. He is on a pace to set a MWL record for errors in a season.

El Paso Chihuahuas 3 - Fresno Grizzlies 7

Key Statistics: RHP Chris Smith 4.1 IP, 7 H, 7 ER, BB,4 K (L, 0-1); RHP Sean Kelly 1 IP; CF Abraham Almonte 2-4, BB, SB (4); DH Cody Decker 1-4, HR (4), 3 RBI;

Prospect Watch RHP Sean Kelly has now thrown four innings in his “rehab” assignment. He has yet to allow a hit. Part of the big issue was walks as Kelly walked five in 5.1 innings in San Diego. This was his first outing where he did not walk a batter and even had an impressive ratio today where 10 of his 13 pitches were strikes.

San Antonio Missions 9 – Frisco RoughRiders 1

Key Statistics: RHP Justin Hancock 7 IP, 8 H, ER, BB, 7 K (W, 3-1); CF Travis Jankowski 2-5, RS, 2 RBI, BB; DH Hunter Renfroe 2-5, 2 2B, 2 RBI, RS; RF Yeison Asencio 3-5, 2B, 2 RS, RBI;

Prospect Watch The Missions fell 8-7 in the conclusion of the suspended game last night. Tyson Guerrero got the loss… Hunter Renfroe had his second multi-extra base hit of the year with two doubles. If you want to be the optimist Renfroe has reached base safely in nine of his last ten games. The downside is that the big power hitter has just one home run compared to 30 strike outs on the season..

Storm 5 – San Jose Giants 4 (10 innings)

Key Statistics: RHP Ryan Butler 7 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K (ND); 3B Gabriel Quintana 1-5, HR (2), 2 RBI; RF Nick Schultz 1-4, RS, 2 RBI

Prospect Watch Ryan Butler continues to be the ace of the club. Butler has started six times, and has allowed a grand total of five earned runs. Despite the transition to starting, Butler is still cranking it up 98-99 mph, comfortably sitting at 95.

Fort Wayne Tin Caps 5 – Dayton Dragons 6 (11 innings)

Key Statistics: RHP Ernesto Montas 5.2 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, K; SS Franchy Cordero 4-5, 3 RS, 2 E (19); 3B Duanel Jones 1-4, HR (3), 3 RBI

Prospect Watch Franchy was on track to be the hero of the game. He reached base safely nearly every time, was dancing around on the base paths, and scored most of the Tin Cap’s runs. Then in the ninth with the Tin Caps up by one Cordero committed an error to tie the game. Two innings later Cordero committed another error to allow the game winning run to come in and score.
