Minor League Ball Gameday: Wednesday, March 12

Kolten Wong - Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

A look at the stats from Tuesday's action, along with an injury report and news on demotions from big league camp.

Hey folks. Welcome back to the Minor League Ball Gameday thread. Once again, the Colorado offense smoked their opponent with home runs from Kyle Parker and Kent Matthes. The top offensive showings by Top 100 players came from the Cardinals and White Sox. Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong was 2-5 with a home run and double while Cuban import Jose Abreu was 3-4 with a pair of runs driven in and third baseman Matt Davidson had a pinch hit home run. In other odd news, the Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant came in as a defensive replacement and Reds second baseman Henry Rodriguez went 1-1 then was released.

The best pitching performance of the day was easily Aaron Sanchez of the Blue Jays until you see who it was against - the Canadian Jr. National team. He struck out seven in four innings with just two hits allowed and no walks. Marlins left hander Brian Flynn tossed three nearly perfect frames, allowing just one hit with a strike out. Southpaw Tim Cooney turned in easily the worst line of the day for a prospect. He only recorded two outs but allowed five runs on six hits, including a home run and two wild pitches.
