Astros Prospect Report: April 16th, 2015

Major League team was you know what that means?!?!?!


Sorry, low blow and too early in the season for that joke.

Fresno's Big First Inning Leads to 5-4 Win

The Grizzlies started off the game with a four run first inning and needed that to at least send it to extras. But they were able to tack on another run in the fourth and that was enough to keep Salt Lake from climbing back into the game. Dan Straily had a rough day as he gave up 10 hits. But, the middle of the order combined for four doubles to help him out.

  • Dan Straily-5 IP, 10 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO, 2/5 GO/AO, 90/57 P/S
  • Richard Rodriguez-2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 SO, 4/2 GO/AO, 28/19 P/S
  • Darin Downs-1 1/3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 SO
  • James Hoyt-2/3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 SO
  • Nolan Fontana SS-2-5, 3B, 2 SO
  • Alex Presley CF-2-4
  • Jon Singleton 1B-1-4, 2B
  • Matt Duffy DH-1-4, 2B, SO
  • Preston Tucker LF-1-4, 2B, SO
  • Matt Dominguez 3B-1-4, 2B, SO
  • Domingo Santana RF-2-4, SO

Hooks Dominant In 8-0 Win


Mark Appel shuts down an offense. Telvin Nash has THREE home runs on the season. Leo Heras hit TWO triples. It's just not fair.

Be sure to check out the comments from yesterday's recap as texcoast46 was in attendance and posted some impressions.

  • Mark Appel-5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 SO, 8/2 GO/AO, 72/41 P/S, 66 Game Score
  • Travis Ballew-2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 SO, 5/0 GO/AO
  • Daniel Minor-2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO
  • Tony Kemp 2B-1-3, 2B, 2 BB
  • Carlos Correa SS-2-3, BB, SO
  • Colin Moran 3B-1-5, 2B, SO
  • Telvin Nash DH-1-5, HR, 2 SO

Bash Bros Pair Up with Home Runs in 10-7 Win

It took much longer than expected but AJ Reed and Chase McDonald have added their names to the home run board. Who had eight games? Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Anyone?

Neither did I. Let's hope this is the start of wonderfully exciting season of lots of home runs. J.D. Davis. You better be next.

  • Zach Morton-4 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 4 SO, 2 HR, 3/2 GO/AO
  • Michael Feliz-3 2/3 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 SO,1 HR, 5/1 GO/AO
  • Frederick Tiburcio-1 1/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
  • James Ramsay RF-3-5, 2 2B, SO, SB, OF Assist
  • A.J. Reed 1B-2-4, 2B, HR, BB, SO
  • Chase McDonald DH-1-4, HR, BB, 2 SO
  • Brett Phillips CF-3-5, 2 2B, 3B

Fisher Continues Hot Start to Lead QC to 6-4 Win

This was actually the completion of the the game from Wednesday. This was Fishers third straight game with a home run. He's the highest draft pick to sign in 2014 and if the past three games have any indication of power developing, he really could be the athletic outfielder with speed and power that the Astros hoped for.

  • Chris Lee-4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 SO, 6/0 GO/AO
  • Bryan Radziewski-4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 SO, 6/0 GO/AO
  • Keegan Yuhl-1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 SO
  • Derek Fisher CF-2-4, 2B, HR
  • Ryan Bottger RF-1-4, 2B, 2 SO, OF Assist
  • Mott Hyde 2B-1-4, 2B
  • Alfredo Gonzalez C-2-4
  • Bryan Muniz 1B-1-4, 2B, 2 SO
  • Jorge Martinez 3B-0-4, 3 SO

Musgrove Continues Low-A Dominance

Two starts. Two Wins. Itty Bitty 1.00 ERA. Joe Musgrave continues to show that he's healthy again and is tossing the ball well. This is the type of pitcher Jeff Luhnow was hoping for when he was a part of the return from the Blue Jays.

  • Joe Musgrove-5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 SO, 4/3 GO/AO
  • Eric Peterson-2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 SO
  • Bobby Boyd LF-2-3, 3B, BB, SB
  • Jamie Ritchie C-1-3, BB, 2 SO, SB
  • Mott Hyde SS-2-3, 2B
  • Jacon Nottingham 1B-1-3, 2B-Huh? First Base?
  • Alex Hernandez 2B-2-2, BB, CS
