Sort of a game thread.
Bryse Wilson has a 2.20 ERA in 45 innings across his last 8 starts at AA. He had two short outings in that time, but he’s pitched 7 inning four times and at least 6 innings a total of 6 times. If you’re scouting the statline, he’s ahead of Anderson, Wentz, and Muller in high minors performance even though he was taken behind all of them.
I almost went to the start that Wentz left early last night, but instead I’m going to go tonight to see if Muller looks as good in person as his statline has looked. Hopefully Wentz doesn’t have a significant injury. One pretty interesting thing is of all the pitching prospects we have, we’ve had very few go down to injury. Only Weigel has had TJ out of the 29 pitching prospects we have that were drafted or traded for since the rebuild began. Vizzy and Soroka have non-structural arm problems, Fried has had his blisters, Gohara has had his leg issues, and others have had more minor stuff. Considering how many players we’ve taken with previous injury history, that’s a bright spot.
Dany Gilbert Kiti “Touki” Toussaint has had one start at AAA since being promoted, going 6.2 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5K. Even with his dominance at AA – 11.20 K/9, 0.73 HR/9, 3.53 FIP — he’s still walking too many guys. His 3.99 BB/9 is btter than last year’s showing at AA (4.99 in 7 starts), but he will certainly need to clean that up.
Kyle Wright looks a little better than his AA ERA shows (4.10). He’s got 9.16 K/9, 3.82 BB/9, and 0.48 HR/9, so his 3.39 FIP is a little encouraging. He’s yet, though, to really dominate AA. But fortunately, he’s got a lot of guys ahead of him right now anyway.
Austin Riley has returned. He’s 12-33 with 3 BB and 8 K. 3 doubles, no home runs. .364/.421/.455. I think the Braves would be wise to be patient with him.
