Not a guarantee, but potentially wonderful news from Helena -- looks like archived audio of Steve Wendt's pre-game interviews may be on the horizon. Always the best way for us to learn about the H-Crew kids, and Steve does a great job conducting the chats.

***

Speaking of Helena, I'll ask our current Link Reporters to consider how responsibilities will be split when Helena starts on Monday and when Maryvale begins on Thursday. You'll need to be a night owl, as Maryvale returns to night baseball this season (9:00 PM start times Central). If someone (besides me) is a very early riser and can commit to Maryvale, we may need to welcome that person on board, which would be not ideal, but OK.

Rather than using this thread, please use this thread from the pre-season to discuss, along with any private messages you need to coordinate things. Consider both your short-term and long-term commitments through August, thanks.

We welcome more volunteers -- it's not that we need seven different folks for the seven games, but it'd be great to have an "on-call" list available when our regulars need a day or more off.

Thanks again for all your insights and efforts, current linkers and future as well.

I love seeing Josh Prince's OBP creeping towards .370. He's having the offensive season i'd hoped for, only at the wrong position

@DSL Brewers 6, DSL Tigers 2

DSL Box
Another day, another DSL game, and another strong pitching performance from the Cerveceritos. Today it was RH starter Milton Gomez (5 IP, 4 H, 2 R/ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 6:2 GO:AO) and piggyback partner, LH Juan Santiago (4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K, 3:1 GO:AO). Gomez turned 18 less than two months ago, while Santiago is in his age-21 season. What I wouldn't do for some reliable scouting reports on these DSL arms... but oh well.

Also of note, zero WPs, zero HBPs, zero PBs, and zero errors for the Crew. Although this season's Cerveceritos are working hard to make that seem commonplace, it really is impressive.

Gomez allowed one run in each of the first two innings, but the Brewers scored twice in their half of the 1st, and the game remained tied 2-2 until the bottom of the 5th. After the new Tigers pitcher retired the first two batters he faced via the groundball, SS Carlos Belonis lined a single into CF. There was a missed catch of some sort by the Tigers CF, because Belonis came all the way around to score on the play. Belonis had doubled in his previous PA, & finished the game 2-3 with the only RBI (via sac fly in the 1st) credited to a Brewers hitter.

The score stood at 3-2 until the home half of the 7th -- and it was a vintage DSL inning. One single, three walks, and four wild pitches... and three runs scored for the Crew en route to the 6-2 final score.

Leadoff man CF Francisco Castillo (2-4) & 2-hitter 3B Raphachel Colatosti (1-3, 1 BB) were the only other Cerveceritos to tally hits. With Belonis in the 3-hole, the top three spots in the lineup combined to go 5-10. The other six spots in the lineup combined for a shudder-inducing 0-16... although they did produce six BBs and two HBPs.

New addition Yunior De La Cruz gave Carlos Pena the day off and made his first start of the season at catcher, going 0-3 with a walk. Other new face Jose Dicent played 1B & went 0-4.

Sthervin Matos was once again in at DH. He only got one AB in today's game, but it wasn't due to re-aggravating his inury. He walked once and was HBP in two other PAs. So he finished his day at 0-1, but reached base three times. Ahh, baseball. Matos must be feeling better, too, because he attempted two steals in the game today (1/2 success rate). Hopefully he'll be back manning 3B before long.

Sounds Blanked By Omaha In Twinbill Opener
06/16/2012 8:36 PM ET
Nashville Sounds

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A trio of Omaha hurlers combined on a three-hitter as the division-leading Storm Chasers hung an 8-0 defeat on the Nashville Sounds in the opener of a doubleheader on Saturday evening at Greer Stadium.

Left-hander Everett Teaford (4-0) worked five scoreless frames to earn the victory for the Storm Chasers. He allowed three hits and retired the final nine batters he faced.

Francisley Bueno worked a perfect sixth before Brandon Sisk closed out the contest with 1-2-3 seventh.

The Omaha pitchers combined to retire the final 15 Nashville batters in succession.

The loss was the sixth shutout suffered by Nashville (26-43) this season. Jeff Bianchi, Andy Gonzalez, and Dayton Buller each singled to account for the Sounds' lone hits in the game.

Right-hander Marco Estrada made his first rehab start for the Sounds as he recovers from a right quadriceps strain. He allowed one hit over three scoreless frames, walking four batters and striking out two. He threw 59 pitches (34 for strikes) and took a no-decision.

The visitors broke a scoreless deadlock in the fourth when Omaha third baseman Irving Falu belted a three-run home run off Sounds reliever Victor Garate (2-4) with two outs. David Lough (single) and Derrick Robinson (walk) both scored on the blast, Falu's fifth roundtripper of the year.

The Storm Chasers wrapped up the contest's scoring with a five-run seventh against Sounds right-hander Brian Baker.

After Wil Myers opened the frame with a walk, designated hitter Clint Robinson upped the visitors' lead to 5-0 when he crushed a two-run homer to right, the slugger's ninth longball of the season.

Omaha continued the rally by loading the bases on a pair of single followed by a fielding error by Sounds second baseman Eric Farris before Derrick Robinson plated the frame's third run with an RBI single to left, which chased Baker from the contest.

Johnnie Lowe took over and walked each of the first two batters he faced to force in two more runs to bring the score to its final 8-0 standing.

Cesar Izturis (strained left hamstring) also made his first rehabilitation appearance for Nashville and went 0-for-3 with three groundouts as the team's designated hitter.

Box Score

The offense deployed a stinker and that will not work against Omaha. They are loaded with production from their hitters.

Marco Estrada, Cesar Izturis and Travis Ishikawa all made rehab appearances during the double header. Estrada made the G1 start and Cesar started G1 while Ishi started G2, both as DH's.

Caleb Gindl lead off and went 0-3. Logan Schafer DNP.

Eric Farris made his 4th error of the year. He always has been regarded as a solid fielder so you should not be surprised by that low number.

Sadly, none of the pitchers were at their best. Estrada was very effective but very wild with 4 BB in 3 IP. He did allow only 1 H to a very potent lineup however. Expect Marco back in Milwaukee shortly.

Final: Montgomery 7, Huntsville 2

Huntsville Box Score
I know the Rays system just about as well as I know the Brewers system and this Montgomery team isn't exactly prospect laden or performing at high level, it's very similarly constructed team to the Stars so it's disappointing this series has gone the way it has with the Stars losing 3 of 4 thus far.

Kyle Heckathorn just didn't throw enough strikes tonight as he threw 101 pitches and only 60 for strikes walking 4 and hitting a batter. The rest of his line was okay, 3 runs, 2 earned, 4 strike outs, posting an 8:2 ratio... he is pitching better than last year but his K rate is in a slow but steady decline as the season progresses and the results in terms of runs allowed haven't been awe inspiring either. He does many things well, his GO:AO ratio and his BB rate in particular are pretty good, but he's giving up more than a hit per inning. He's just kind of a tough prospect to get a good read on considering his not throwing as hard as he did in college and has never really missed enough bats or limited the hits to the point where I would feel comfortable projecting him. Daniel Meadows and Brandon Kintzler both gave up 2 runs a piece in relief and Kintzler's last 4.1 innings have been brutal as he's given up nine runs and his ERA ballooned to an even 6. Is this an after-effect of the forearm surgery or has he just gone ice cold?

Josh Prince went 0-2 but did walk twice, he'd by my surprise player for this level so far. He also stole his 23rd base and was caught stealing for the 9th time. No Stars had a multi-hit game though Matt Cline did double in the contest and Tommy Manzella stole his 2nd base of the season while Lee Haydel was caught stealing for the 3rd time and committed his first error (fielding). Opposing baserunners Hak-Ju Lee and Omar Luna victimized Huntsville for 4 stolen bases, 3 by Lee who's the best prospect on this Montgomery team. Hexathorn did PO a base runner at 1st.

Huntsville Play By Play
The teams traded runs in the first but it was all Montgomery after that.

avid readers will remember Reds LHP Tony Cingrani making multiple appearances in the Link Report so far this season, here's the Reds top pitching prospect coming into the season 1 upping Cingrani's hot sheet ranking yesterday. I would link BA's report for Corcino but there is a decent scouting report in the story.
Wahoo! Corcino leads combined no-no
Reds prospect fans nine over eight, De La Rosa completes it
By Andrew Pentis / Special to MLB.com

Image
Daniel Corcino signed with the Reds out of the Dominican Republic in January 2008. (Chris Nelson)

There was Daniel Corcino, a walking, talking -- and pitching -- oxymoron: Dirt stains stretching from his uniform pant leg up to his chest and sweat dripping from his brow. He was finishing the cleanest outing of his pro career on an 84-degree Saturday night in Pensacola, yet he was very, very dirty.

That was because Corcino accomplished something earlier in the evening that his opposition failed to: He got a hit.

The Reds' top pitching prospect held down the visiting Mobile BayBears for eight innings and lefty reliever Wilkin De La Rosa worked the ninth to seal the 68-game-old franchise's first no-hitter. Oh, and a 6-0 victory.

The Corcino-De La Rosa effort marked the eighth no-hitter -- each the work of a tag team -- in the Minors this season. One other fact: The last Southern League no-hitter occurred exactly one year ago when the BayBears were quieted by then-Montgomery ace Matt Moore.

After his second hit of the season, a leadoff single in third, Corcino advanced to second and slid into third -- two more small successes that the BayBears didn't sniff. On the mound, Corcino issued two-out walks to Yazy Arbelo and Ed Easley in the second and fifth frames, respectively, but was otherwise perfect. The 21-year-old right-hander had thrown 78 pitches through six frames and required 20 more to pitch around a leadoff walk to Matt Davidson and strike out the side in the seventh.

In the eighth, he threw 12 more pitches, bringing his total to 110. The 24th out was pinch-hitter Wladimir Sutil, who worked the count to 3-0 before becoming Corcino's ninth victim on strikes, matching a season high. He also recorded nine outs on the ground and five in the air.

Corcino was at his best, and he knew it. He wanted to finish what he started.

"It's incredible," Corcino told pnj.com. "It's my first time to throw eight innings, but I know I can keep going and maybe next time, you know, I can finish."

That's why he was standing atop the dugout steps -- helmet on -- when his spot in the batting order neared in the bottom of the eighth. When manager Jim Riggleman followed organizational protocol and inserted Josh Fellhauer in Corcino's slot, the vociferous few among the 5,038 at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium started to boo.

"No, not really, it wasn't hard at all. It's the guidelines," Riggleman told the website, noting Corcino is slated to pitch in next week's Southern League All-Star Game. "Maybe if anything, I should have taken him out after seven. But we were not going to let him go past 110 (pitches)."

Fellhauer singled and scored during the ensuing three-run rally.

For his part, De La Rosa elicited cheers. He required 26 pitches and issued a fourth Blue Wahoos walk but also struck out the side in the ninth. After striking out Marc Krauss to end the game, De La Rosa threw his glove into the air, then hugged his fellow Dominican Republic native who started the run at history. Corcino came out of the pile of players with the baseball in hand.

In his first Double-A season, Corcino (3-4) was 0-3 with a 4.94 ERA in his previous six starts. And in a dozen prior appearances this year, he had not advanced into the seventh inning. He ended up eclipsing his single-game career high in innings after going seven three times with Class A Dayton last season.

Still, Corcino features a mid-90s fastball to go with his slider and changeup. And this is the same pitcher who, before his recent slide, went 2-0 while allowing only six hits over 11 1/3 scoreless frames against Jacksonville on April 27 and Jackson on May 3.

A non-drafted free agent who signed with Cincinnati in January 2008, Corcino lowered his ERA to 3.34 and has a 69-to-31 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 70 innings with the Blue Wahoos.

De La Rosa, too, was right for the assignment. Pitching in his sixth season after five as an outfielder, the 27-year-old entered with a 1.31 ERA in 19 games since an April 23 promotion from Class A Advanced Bakersfield. This is his first year in the Reds organization.

The Blue Wahoos scored their lone run off BayBears starter David Holmberg in the fifth when No. 4 Reds prospect Didi Gregorious tripled and came home two batters latter on Joel Guzman's two-out single.

David Vidal also plated Gregorious with a two-run homer in the seventh off reliever Bryan Henry.

Holmberg, the D-backs' No. 7 prospect, yielded six hits and a walk while striking out six over five innings. After two Double-A starts, he's 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA.

Sounds Hang Ten On Omaha For Doubleheader Split
06/16/2012 9:59 PM ET
Nashville Sounds

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Sounds batted around and exploded for seven runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to take a 10-3 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers in the doubleheader nightcap on Saturday night at Greer Stadium.

The victory gave the Sounds a doubleheader split, which was the third of the season and moved the club to 4-6 in doubleheader action.

The seven runs scored in the inning set a season-high for the Sounds while the 10-spot matched a season-high previously set on June 11 at Memphis.

Prior to the contest, the Sounds had only scored 18 total runs in the sixth inning all season. (Crazy stat of the week winner)

Travis Ishikawa (left oblique strain) made his first rehabilitation appearance for Nashville and went 2-for-4 with a double (Audio) and three RBIs as the team's designated hitter.

Shortstop Jeff Bianchi, and outfielders Jordan Brown and Jay Gibbons each added two hits.

Nashville starter Mark Rogers recorded a no-decision, giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits and four walks in five innings of work for a no-decision. The 26-year-old also matched a season-high with six strikeouts with 101 pitches (56 strikes).

Reliever Mike McClendon (3-3) closed the door with two scoreless frames and the victory.

Jordan Brown led off the bottom of the eighth inning with a single and was replaced by pinch runner Corey Patterson. Reliever Jeremy Jeffress then threw 10 straight balls, including a wild pitch that allowed Patterson to score the go-ahead run from third. After another walk to load the bases, shortstop Hainley Statia knocked a weak grounder past the shortstop to score Sean Halton.

After a Logan Schafer sacrifice fly and Bianchi single, Ishikawa crushed a three-run double to right -center to clear the bases. The final run of the frame came from an RBI double from Patterson.


The two teams traded runs through the first five innings, beginning with Omaha in the top of the first. Royals' prospect Wil Myers worked a two-out walk and came home to score the game's first run on the next play on a two-base fielding error on Brown.

The Sounds knotted the contest at 1-1 in the bottom of the second and only managed to score one run. With no outs and the bases loaded, catcher Jason Jaramillo grounded into a double play that scored Brown.

In the next inning, Myers uncorked his 11th homer of the season over the right field wall to give the Storm Chasers a 2-1 lead.

Nashville again tied the game at 2-2 in the home half of the third. Schafer blooped a double over the third baseman's head and scored two batters later on an Andy Gonzalez sacrifice fly.

Gibbons gave the Sounds a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the fourth with a towering homer onto Chestnut Street. (Audio) The long ball was Gibbons' third in his last five games.

Omaha came back to score a run in the top of the fifth to knot the game at 3-3. Irving Falu worked a four-pitch walk, stole second base, and came home to score the tying-run on a Clint Robinson RBI single.

Omaha starter Will Smith (1-4) took the loss after scattering eight hits for four runs in five plus innings.

The teams wrap up the series with a 2:05 p.m. matinee finale on Sunday afternoon. It will be a battle of organizational top prospects as right-hander Wily Peralta (1-8, 6.34) mans the bump for the Sounds to face Omaha southpaw Mike Montgomery (3-2, 4.81).

Box Score

In a complete turn around from G1, the Sounds matched a season high in runs scored with 10. Logan Schafer led off and went 1-3 with a 2B. Former Storm Chaser Jeff Bianchi hit 2nd and went 2-3 with a BB. Ishikawa hit 3rd and went 2-4 with a 2B. I could on, but I hope you get the point. Everyone contributed. Check the box score and enjoy the prettiness.

Mark Rogers got the start and he was pretty good. 5 IP 4 H 3 R 2 ER 4 BB 6 K 1 HR 2:1 GO:FO. He will need to string a couple starts like this together in order to rescue his season line. As usual, even a decent Rogers is tough to hit. Mike McClendon had his best game of recent memory pitching 2 scoreless innings.

I absolutly loved the Jeremy Jeffress pick when we made it. He posted an 135.00 ERA on the evening.
