Freitas with 4 MORE hits again last night including a home run.

Hitting.377-.461 now.

Honestly trying to understand why he’s not at a minimum in the brewers lineup crushing LHP?

With the crew’s obvious WEAKNESS vs lefty’s, to have a hitter that destroys them wasting away down below when he could be helping the big league club is absolutely ridiculous, just my opinion.

What does he have to do to get a call? How much better can he perform? His teammates have to be rolling their eyes at this organization’s obvious error ALL year with roster decisions, especially with regards to this player.


It's not unprecedented how well he's hitting against minor leaguers. Last year he hit .349/.428/.527 in AAA. The truth of the matter is the Brewers don't want to carry three catchers right now and they likely won't send Pina down because he's out of options and he's much better defensively. Freitas has thrown out 5 out of a possible 45 base stealers this year, while Pina has thrown out 6 of 17. Unless the Brewers punt on Pina - and the remaining control on his contract - Freitas is likely not coming up until September.


He shouldn’t be brought up for his defense at C, but to hit LHP, and play 1B. And it should be August 31st at the latest or Stearns should be fired.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Attanasio knows enough to not let the promotion, or lack thereof, of a 30-year old journeyman catcher be the determinant in his general manager's tenure.

Box: AZL Rangers 7, AZL Brewers Blue 2

HBP: Urbaez (by Serrano); Miller (by Richardson); Moss (by Baez); Hernandez, H (by Baez); Pena (by Baez).

That's two Brewers plunked, while RHP Jeyner Baez hit three (only one HBP prior to Thursday).

It's a wonder we don't read about more serious, like hospital-stay, HBP's at the lower levels. In this box score, all 18 players played the entire game.

***

Weather: 108 degrees, Partly Cloudy.

I've heard it's a dry heat.

Here were your two runs:

19-year-old 2nd-year-pro and Bahamian native Orveo Saint has seen all his action at second base this year. He hit his 3rd HR of the summer, but fanned in his other three AB's, that's been an issue as his linked page will attest.

18-year-old rookie LH bat YongKang Kou hit his first home run. It's been a tough season, so that must have felt really good.

I often check those home runs in the game log just to see if perhaps they were of the inside-the-park variety. Both of these cleared the fence. We've likely missed a couple from the Dominican or Maryvale in that regard this year.

Box: AZL Indians Blue 9, AZL Brewers Gold 4

38th round RHP Eli Nabholz tossed four hitless innings in his 7th start (10th appearance). The only baserunner he allowed was via HBP.

Bullpen efforts were not as strong, and usually extra-reliable RHP Jose Parra (1.06 WHIP) was victimized the most.

20-year-old corner infielder Aaron Familia is showing improvement in his second year stateside, but not "let's take note" kind of stuff. He singled twice and walked here.
