Astros Weekend Minor League Recap, June 4, 2012

Merry Christm...I mean Draft Day! Feels a little like Christmas though doesn't it? There's so much other draft coverage on this site that we'll save that for other threads.

It was a good weekend with a record of 7-2 and the only losses coming from the Hooks yesterday and the DSL Astros season opener on Saturday. Not bad at all! Especially considering there starting pitching really wasn't good except for a few performances. It was primarily on bullpens locking it down and the hitting picking up some slack.

There is also some movement in the minors leagues due to injuries and one promotion. Obviously we all know about Fernando Martinez and Brett Wallace getting promoted to the majors. Then there was also the return of Jordan Lyles. With those moves, we had Dallas Keuchel get activated and Matt Downs optioned down to Oklahoma City. We also saw the super utility man Andrew Simunic get called up the OkC.

You've also likely heard that Jason Chowning will be headed to Lancaster today and the corresponding move is that Gabriel Garcia is being demoted from Lancaster the Lexington. Jesse Wierzbicki was sent back down to Tri-City. Luis Ordosgoitti and John Henson were put on the 7-Day DL. Orosgoitti has some forearm tightness and Hinson tweaked his hamstring. Richard Rodriguez was added to start for Ordosgoitti and pitched three good innings. You might remember Rodriguez who was suspended last season for testing positive for Stanozolol. If you don't know what that is, the name Winstrol might sound a little familiar.

I want to point out Mike Foltynewicz start yesterday. He allowed just one hit through eight innings, and that was a home run in the fourth inning. He also allowed two walks and struck out five. The strikeouts weren't dominant, but the impressive part is obviously the lack of hits allowed. It's also noteworthy that Folty can visibly get down on himself when something goes wrong, but he stuck with it and pitched three shutout innings after the home run.

EDIT at 2:41 PM CT: Game Scores added! Folty posted a season best!
