Down On The Farm: June 17th


AAA Norfolk 2, Louisville 6

RHP Jake Arrieta: 4.2 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, L (0-2) (5.06 ERA) – Arrieta’s 2nd start at AAA didn’t go as good as his first, but he still showed his excellent stuff with 7 strikeouts in less than 5 innings. He’ll be alright, just needs to adjust to the better talent hes facing.
RHP Jim Miller: 1 IP, H, K (1.71 ERA) – Miller has been pitching lights out this year at AAA. He was up with the O’s at the end of last year and I think he’ll be up again before the end of the year.
RF Jeff Fiorentino: 2-4, R (.308 AVG)

AA Bowie 4, Reading 1

LHP Brian Matusz: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, BB, 10 K, W (1-0) (0.00 ERA) – An excellent way to make his AA debut. He hasn’t missed a beat. Matusz dominated high A ball with a 4-2 record, 2.16 ERA, and 75 strikeouts in 66.2 innings. Strong chance hes in the opening day rotation coming out of Spring Training next year. I would say he gets a September call-up, but I don’t think the O’s want to tax his arm too much in his first professional season.
RHP Ryohei Tanaka: 2 IP, 2 H, 4 K (0.00 ERA) – Tanaka is the much less talked about Japanese import the O’s signed in the offseason. He just recently joined Bowie, but hes been fantastic since doing so.
1B Brandon Snyder: 1-4, triple (1) (.348 AVG)
2B Miguel Abreu: 2-4, RBI, 2 doubles (14) (.301 AVG)
C Adam Donachie: 2-2, R, 3 RBI, BB, HR (3) (.225 AVG)

High A Frederick 7, Winston-Salem 8

RHP Pedro Beato: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, BB, 4 K (4.63 ERA)
C Wally Crancer: 3-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, HR (3) (.316 AVG)

A Delmarva 0, Lake County 3

LHP Nathan Moreau: 6.2 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, L (1-2) (4.55 ERA)
