Astros Minor League Recap


I know that this definitely won’t be as good as Subber10’s Minor League Recaps, but there were a couple of good performances last night that are worth discussing. I really enjoy reading Subber10’s posts about our system, and enjoy reading everybody’s opinions about who they like in the farm system. Plus I figured it would be a decent time to throw in something positive after another disappointing loss to the Cardinals last night.

The good news starts in Lancaster with starter Jose Cisnero. This season has been a tale of two seasons for Cisneros so far. He had an 11 strikeout performance on 04/12, but followed that up by giving up 5 earned runs in 1.1 innings pitched. He had a 13 strikeout performance on 05/03, but followed that up by allowing 4 earned runs in 1 inning pitched. Last night Cisnero once again dominated. He went 7 innings while allowing 1 earned run on 2 hits and struck out 7. This outing is the second outing in a row that Cisnero went at least 7 innings while also striking out 7 batters. In his last two outings Cisnero has thrown 14.2 innings, allowed 1 earned run, struck out 14, and only walked 4 batters.

Oklahoma City won 6-3

Nelson Figueroa – 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 SO, 1 HR, 1-5 GO/AO

Fernando Abad – 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, BB, 2 SO – Our Astros castoffs Figueroa and Abad had a nice night.

Brandon Barnes CF – 1-5, HR, RBI, 3 SO – Even though he’s hitting .222, that’s his 5th homer with OKC. 3 strikeouts are not all that great though.

Max Ramirez C – 2-5, HR, RBI – 2nd homer since signed by the Astros

Brian Dopirak DH – 3-4, 2 RBIs, SO – Also hit his 5th homer of the season

Tommy Manzella SS – 2-3, 3B, RBI, BB, SB

Corpus Christi lost 12-7

Kyle Greenwalt – 3 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, SO, 3 HR – Not a very good outing at all

Matt Nevarez – 0.2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 2 SO – Since getting off to a good start he’s been struggling

Danny Meszaros – 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, SO

Wladimir Sutil SS – 2-5, SO

Brandon Wikoff 3B – 2-5, 2B, RBI – Continues to rack up the hits

Kirk Clark – 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, SO – Picked up his 11th save of the season

Jose Thompson SS – 2-4, 2B, SO – I was surprised to see him at shortstop. I guess Villar is injured?

Jose Altuve 2B – 2-4, SO
