TGR wanted to do a quick look into the minors and check up on some of the up and coming MLBers. With Cliff Lee back for the Phillies, Michael Schwimer heads back to the minors. Click HERE to read more. In 5 games (6.1 IP) Schwimer was 0-1 with a 8.53 ERA, striking out 3 and walking 5. We have not seen the last of him this season.

 

While Schwimer was flirting the the majors, the Mets Josh Satin, who played for the Mets last season is hitting .264 in 31 games for the AAA Buffalo Bisons. He also has 2 HRs and .298 OBP. Red Sox cather  Ryan Lavarnway has been with the Pawtucket Red Sox posted a .260 BA, 2 HRs, and a .360 OBP. The other two AAAers who have yet to play in the majors are Eric Berger (Cleveland Indians) and Mauricio Tabachnik (San Diego Padres). For his current team he is 0-1 in one started with a 3.00ERA.  He struck out 6 in the game and sported a pretty sweet Rollie Fingers mustache. Tabachnik is 2-1 in 14.2 innings with a 4.91ERA including 11 Ks.

Two others to keep your eyes on are Nathan Freiman (Padres) in AA is hitting .308 with 11 HRs and Ben Guez (Detroit Tigers) who is only batting .238 but is a big prospect.


Hope we see these guys soon.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
