Time to check in on whats happening down on the farm for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Here is my check on all of the Snakes minor league teams:
Triple A Reno: Remember when reliever Will Harris was a critical part of the Snakes bullpen. Well he was sent to the minor leagues after a rough start to the 2014 campaign, and since joining the Aces, he has performed well. Harris has made 16 appearances and posted 20 innings while compiling an impressive 1.35 era. Who knows if the Dbacks need bullpen help in the future, Will Harris could be the next guy to get called up. Mike Jacobs continues to tear it up hitting .360 with 10 home runs, 46 RBI’s, and a slugging percentage of .609. Since going back to Reno, Mike Bolsinger is putting on a clinic and I wouldn’t be surprised if he is back up with the big league club soon. He is 4-0 with a 1.47 era in 6 starts.
Double A Mobile: OF David Peralta acquired from the Independent League last season is leading the way for the Bay Bears in 2014 hitting .293 with 6 HR and 45 RBI’s. OF Dustin Martin is hitting .328 which is the highest batting average on the team. Since being promoted to the Double A Level, LHP Andrew Chafin has thrown terrific. He is 4-1 with an era of 1.96 in 9 starts for the Bay Bears.
High A Visalia: 3B Brandon Druy is continuing to rake for the Rawhide. In his last 10 games he is hitting .300 with three homers and a .949 OPS. In 6 innings pitched for the Rawhide since his promotion from Low A South Bend he has yet to give up a run with a 0-0 record.
Low A South Bend: Catcher Skylar Trahan is only hitting .204 but he is second in RBI’s with 30. First basemen Daniel Palka leads the team in home runs with 7 and RBI’s with 37. In 8 starts Dbacks 2013 first round draft pick Branden Shipley is 4-2 with a 3.74 era.
