Minor League Starts on Tuesday, May 12

Here are the starts from Tuesday, May 12- plus one I missed from May 11. (I get the starters from milb.com’s schedule, and sometimes they do not list a starter for a team or three.)

Missed Start from Monday, May 11

  • Alex Wimmers (Luray 2008), for AA Chattanooga: 6 IP, 6 hits, 2 earned runs, 4 BB, 9 K’s, game score of 57, win, 6-2. Alex is now 1-0, 5.67 in 27 innings pitched this year.

Starts on Tuesday, May 12

  • Elih Villanueva (Luray 2007), for AA Bowie: 5 IP, 7 hits, 5 runs, 4 earned, 0 BB, 2 K’s, game score of 37, loss, 6-4. Elih hasn’t had too many poor starts this year… he’s 4-3, 3.32 in 40.2 innings.
  • Matt Benedict (Haymarket 2009-10), for A Bradenton: 5 IP, 7 hits, 4 earned runs, 1 BB, 5 K’s, game score of 41, win, 5-4. Matt is starting to pile up some good stats: he’s 3-1, 2.73 in 35 innings.
  • Austin Gomber (Luray 2012), for A Peoria: 5.1 IP, 4 hits, 3 runs, 2 earned, 1 BB, 8 K’s, game score of 57, win, 5-3. Austin is starting to turn some heads this year- I will expect, if he keeps pitching like this, that Austin will start to show up on top prospect lists in early 2016. Austin’s 2-3, 3.50 in 36 innings.
  • Brad Mills (Harrisonburg 2005) for AAA Nashville: 6 IP, 8 hits, 3 earned runs, 2 BB, 5 K’s, game score of 47, win, 6-3. Brad is 1-4, 5.06 in 32 innings in 2015.
  • Tyler Thornburg (Winchester 2008) for AAA Colorado Springs: 6 IP, 7 hits, 2 earned runs, 1 BB, 4 K’s, game score of 53, win, 10-3. Is Tyler preparing to eventually join the Milwaukee starting rotation? He’s 0-0, 2.55 in 17.2 innings in Colorado Springs.
  • Ryan Yarbrough (Luray 2012) for A Bakersfield: 2.2 IP, 6 hits, 6 unearned runs, 0 earned runs, 2 BB, 1 K, game score of 33, loss, 6-3. Tough start for Ryan, but clearly not all his fault. He’s now 2-2, 2.88 in 34.1 innings.

Scheduled Starts for Wednesday, May 13

  • Taylor Cox (New Market 2012) for A Fort Wayne
  • Scott Copeland (Staunton 2007) for AAA Buffalo
