Jayne is reporting that Tyler Ivey may be serving a team suspension
Ivey is officially listed on the 7-day Injured List ... for what that is worth.

ETA - After reading the piece, Jayne does mention that.

Brett Adcock finally had a scoreless outing last night, with 7 Ks through 3 IP. It did take him 80 pitches though. Meanwhile, Tyler Ivey returned from the IL and picked up where he left off - 5 hitless innings with 7 K & 2 BB to pick up the win and lower his ERA to 0.86.

It will be interesting to see who gets bumped to RR to fill Martin’s spot, but Ivey must certainly get some consideration.

Riley Ferrel returned to the Astros. It’s as if he was never with the Marlins.

Saw a couple of Hooks games against the Travelers who are a Royals affiliate.

Little of note for the position players, but:

Dawson only played in one of the games I saw. He plays a nice CF. Good jumps and coverage. He also hit an oppo homer.

Toro generally puts the ball in play, but not a lot of hard hit balls.

Beer had one hard hit ball. He’s probably a good hitter, but I didn’t get an inkling of that skill, let’s of rollover grounders. He better be a good hitter because his other skills won’t carry him upward.

Shaver seems like his bat is OK.

In the hitter’s defense, they were going against the two Florida Gator pitchers who were recent Royal’s high picks. Kowar has good stuff but below average command in this outing. Singer has average stuff with good command.

On the mound:

Donato - low 90s FB with average secondaries. He did seem to grow stronger throughout the game and does seem like a guy that outpiches his ability.

Peredes - small dude. Kind of a slinger with a live arm. Kind of wild, but FB and SL are impressive. 97 or so on the FB and high 80s SL. Both with a lot of swing and miss. Saw a few curves and what I assume were changes, but they need improvement. Overall, i really enjoyed watching him. I’m thinking he’d be in the pen if he makes it, but he’s someone I want to follow.

Collado - sidearmer with high 80s FB and low 80s breaking ball. Doesn’t light up the gun but he was impressive, sort of dominant in his 3 innings. Another to keep an eye on.

I guess the rally caps worked. Down 4-1 after 7, the Hooks put up 10 in the top of the 8th to give Nick Hernandez his first win.

I'm going to catch a Hooks game on Friday (and possibly Saturday). What players should I pay particular attention to? Aruaz jumps out, as does Dawson, for the hitters. Whitley of course, and Abreu for the pitchers.

Any suggestions about where to find probable pitchers?

Ivey, Javier, Scrubb and McKee. Collado also if he is back from injury.

I’d add Peredes to the list of pitchers. Good luck on finding probables.  They used to have a gamenotes document that had it, but now you are left to a day-of lookup on MiLB.  You could also email the media contact and get a helpful response and likely info. I haven’t done it with the Hooks, but the Express guy is responsive and it’s the same ownership group.

Enjoy, it’s a nice park and relatively pleasant even on hot summer days.

Javier pitched last night so you might see him this weekend. He is putting together a real nice year at Corpus Christi.
70 innings, 2.06 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, 104 SOs, .123 average against and only 4HRs. Only hole in his stats is walks - 38.
22 years old in his fifth year in the organization. Uniformly good stats at every level. No. 10 prospect. High spin rate on his fastball.

The first five batters were the good Whitley. The rest were ass.

Did you get to see the Saturday game? Combined shutout. Javier with 10 SOs. He has pretty much mastered AA. I wonder if he will get a AAA start this year.
