Note: I cannot embed MLB/MiLB videos directly into WordPress, so I have to embed the video in another object that I can embed (I’ve been using a word cloud with only one word). So it’s a two-step process. Click on the box, and then on the arrow to play the video.
The minor-league videos are small, but I tried to pick ones that are pretty decent when expanded to full screen. You also might have to be a bit patient for loading.
First, here’s Jesus Montero.
Here’s one breaking pitch from Jordan Pries:
From Jackson, here’s Jabari Blash (since promoted):
On defense, Ketel Marte (kind of oddly edited, but you get the idea):
Got no new highlights from High Desert, but here’s Austin Wilson in Clinton:
- As we’ve already alluded to in the article on right-handed power, Montero had his 7th homer to help boost Tacoma to an 8-0 blowout of Sacramento. James Jones also went deep.
- Blash was 0-for-5 in his AAA debut.
- Pries got the win and keeps looking solid: 6.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K
- Jackson also got a shutout, behind James Gillheeney. Kevin Rivers and Mickey Wiswall contributed homers.
- High Desert was on the receiving end of a 1-hitter, though Jabari Henry had three walks.
- Clinton split a double-dip after a bunch of rain. Emilio Pagan got his 5th save in the opener. He’s only given up 4 ER in his entire pro career: 1.03 ERA last year; 0.75 ERA this year.
- Wilson had the above-viewable homer in the 7th inning of the nightcap (empty stands), but Thyago Vieira gave up the walk-off run in the bottom of the inning.
