    Three Stars of the Day 5/23/09


    1. Alberto Bastardo - LHP - Inland Empire 66ers (A+)

    The southpaw from Venezuela pitched six shutout innings but was robbed of his third straight win when 66ers closer Justin Orenduff blew his third save of the season. Bastardo struck out seven batters, walked just one, and surrendered four hits. It was the third straight start in which Bastardo has given up a run or less. Bastardo lowered his ERA to 3.72. He has struck out 46 batters in 48.1 innings while walking 14.

    2. Preston Mattingly - LF - Inland Empire 66ers (A+)

    In his second game back from a stint on the diasbled list, Mattingly batting lead-off for the 66ers had a four hit night in the 66ers extra inning win over the Bakersfield Blaze. Mattingly hit his fourth Home Run of the season, a solo shot in the 8th inning to go along with his three singles, on of which drove in Elian Herrera in the top of the 10th inning to give the 66ers a short lived lead.

    3. Kyle Russell - RF - Great Lakes Loons (A-)

    Russell homered and doubled in the Loons' losing effort against the Clinton LumberKings. The Loons lost 12-6 as first-rounder Ethan Martin got roughed up fro the first time this year. Russell was 2-4, his 11th Home Run, a solo one. Russell's 11 Home Runs lead the Midwest League. Russell's RBI brought his tally to 36, a number which also leads the league.

    I'm wondering when the Dodgers will decide to promote Russell. Most college players don't spend a lot of time in Low A, seems like they go to High A then get promoted to AA. It is obvious Russell is advanced for Low A ball. Perhaps they are waiting for the 2009 draft, once they get some more players in the fold they can promote Russell and have a replacement ready for Great Lakes.

    Anyways, let's just hope he keeps mashing.

    1. James McDonald - RHP - Albuquerque Isotopes (AAA)

    In his second start since being demoted to the minors, McDonald pitched four innings, striking out five and walking three. McDonald gave up one earned run on three hits. McDonald's pitch count reached 69 of which 41 were thrown for strikes. In his previous start, McDonald went just two and two-thirds of an inning. The 'Topes ended up losing 3-2 against the Salt Lake Bees the Angels Triple-A affiliate.

    2. Tony Abreu - SS - Chattanooga Lookouts (AA)

    After a hitless day at the plate the game before, Abreu tripled and doubled in the Lookouts losing effort against the Carolina Mudcats. Abreu was 2-5 with two runs driven in and a run scored. Abreu's double was his fourth of the year and his triple was his first. It was Abreu's fifth multi-hit game of the season.

    3. Nick Buss - CF - Great Lakes Loons (A-)

    Buss, an eighth round pick out of USC in last year's draft, was assigned to Great Lakes in early May to take over for a struggling Erik Kanaby provided the offense for the Loons in their 2-1 loss to Clinton. Buss hit a solo Home Run in the fourth inning to account for the Loons' sole run. Buss' Homer was his second of the season. Buss also singled to finish the game 2-4 from the plate.

    Three Stars of the Day 5/25/09


    1. Pedro Baez - 3B - Inland Empire 66ers (A+)

    Baez hit his seventh and eight Home Runs of the year to account for all of the 66ers offense against Bakersfield. One of Baez's homers was a solo shot, the other a two-run Home Run. Baez's three RBI gave him 26 on the season which ties him for the team lead. The 3B is OPSing .840 this season but it is mostly being carried by is slugging percentage which is a robust .516.

    2. Robert Boothe - RHP - Great Lake Loons (A-)

    Boothe is has an interesting story. Born to an American father and a Japanese mother, he was the first amateur from Asia signed by the Dodgers. On Memorial Day, Boothe pitched three scoreless innings to help protect Justin Miller's win. In his first season in the Midwest league, Boothe has shown the propensity to strike batters out. His last outing was evidence of this, as he struck out six batters in three inning appearance. This season Boothe has struck out 37 batters in 23 innings of work.

    3. Javy Guerra - RHP - Great Lakes Loons (A-)

    Guerra struck out two batters in a perfect 9th inning to earn his 11th save of the season. Guerra has now pitched 10.1 innings of consecutive scoreless relief. Guerra has struck out 13 batters during this streak and 30 batters on the year. He has allowed just three earned runs in 24 innings.

    Three Stars of the Day 5/26/09


    1. Nathan Eovaldi - RHP - Great Lakes Loons (A-)

    Eovaldi an 11th round draft pick from a Texas high school was thought of by many as being a draft day steal. Thus far Eovaldi has not proved his supporters correct. However against Kane County, Eovaldi arguably had the best start of his young career. The Texan pitched five innings of shutout ball. He struck out four batters and walked just one. He surrendered three hits all singles. Unfortunately for Eovaldi, the bullpen imploded behind him and he was not able to earn his second win of the season. Eovaldi lowered his ERA to an unsightly 6.29. He has however had two solid starts in a row now, and hopefully he can turn his season around.

    2. Jamie Pedroza - 2B - Great Lake Loons (A-)

    Pedroza's solo Home Run in the 8th inning was his seventh of the season. The UCR product also hit his tenth double of the year. Pedroza was 2-4 in the Loons losing effort. Pedroza's 27 RBI is good enough for second on the team behind Kyle Russell who also had a solo Home Run. his 12th.

    3. Blake DeWitt - 2B - Albuquerque Isotopes (AAA)

    Down 7-1 in the bottom of the eight inning, the 'Topes mounted a rally that saw them tie the game. Rain suspended the game at the end of the ninth inning. DeWitt is 2-5 with an RBI single, he also hit his ninth double of the season. DeWitt's RBI gives him a total of 11 on the year.

    1. Jon Michael Redding - RHP - Great Lakes Loons (A-)

    After turning in his worst start the season in which Redding lasted just 1.1 innings and surrendered six runs, Redding bounced back with his best start of the season. Redding threw six innings of shutout ball. He struck out a 11 batters, a career high. Redding scattered four hits during his stint and didn't walk a single batter. Only a rain delay that lasted almost an hour could stop Redding. The Loons bullpen did its job, with Javy Guerra pitching two innings to earn his 12th save of the year. Redding earned his sixth win of the season and he improves his record to 6-2.

    2. Chris Withrow - RHP - Inland Empire 66ers (A+)

    Withrow took over for Hiroki Kuroda who was making his second rehab start and pitched five solid innings. Withrow took the loss but only gave up one run in his relief appearance. Withrow struck out ten men while walking none, and gave up three hits. The loss gave Withrow a 3-4 record. On the season Withrow has struck out 50 batters 31.2 innings of work.

    3. Chin-lung Hu - 2B - Albuquerque Isotopes (AAA)

    Hu's Grand Slam keyed the Isotopes come from behind win from a five run deficit. Hu has a Home Run in his last two games giving him two on the year. Hu's Homer was his only hit of the night and his four RBI upped his total to 21.

    Here's some info on Josh Lindblom from BA

    6. Josh Lindblom, rhp, Dodgers, second round (61st overall)

    At 6-foot-5, 240 pounds, Lindblom is one of the bigger pitchers in the minors, but he’s stood out early in the year with his ability to throw strikes at a high frequency. After walking just four batters in 29 innings last year in his pro debut with low Class A Great Lakes, the 21-year-old Lindblom has walked just three batters in 33 2/3 innings (0.8 BB/9) for Double-A Chattanooga this year and struck out 31 (8.3 K/9). Lindblom, who was a reliever at Purdue his junior year, can touch the mid-90s with his fastball, though he sits more comfortably in the low-90s as a starter.
