Dbacks MiLB Round-Up 6/15: Placido Ks 12

Dominican starter Anderson Placido made a terrific first impression for Hillsboro with 12 strikeouts in 5.1 innings, allowing no runs on 3 hits and a walk. Placido was originally signed by the Indians in 2012 and after one season in the Dominican Summer League he was let go for some reason after going 6-1 with a 1.97 ERA. The Diamondbacks snatched him up and he spent another year in the DSL striking out 83 in 66 innings with a 2.59 ERA. he was given four starts for Missoula at the end of last year that were so-so and this year earned a job in the Hillsboro rotation. The left-hander is currently 20 years old and has an average build at 6-0, 190. I don't have any information on what his pitching repertoire is but he's off to a great start.

AAA: Reno 2 @ Memphis 7. A pretty blah game all around for Reno on Sunday. Zeke Spruill had an off game allowing 7 runs over 4 innings. The offense responded with just 2 runs on 8 hits. Tyler Bortnick went 2 for 4 with a double, and Danny Dorn and Andy Cunningham each added a pair of singles.

AA: Mobile 4 Pensacola 2. Charles Brewer obviously likes the Southern League better than the PCL as he had another solid outing on Sunday. He allowed 2 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks over 6 innings while striking out 8. The offense wasn't great but did enough led by Sean Jamieson and Tom Belza who each had 2 hits with a double and an RBI. Catcher Steve Rodriguez went 2 for 3 with a walk and a double while scoring twice.

A+: Visalia - Off Day

A: South Bend 1 West Michigan 4. Blayne Weller was so-so allowing 4 runs on 9 hits over 5+ innings, though he did strike out 8. The offense did next to nothing to help him out with 1 run on 5 hits. Andrew Velazquez went 1 for 2, walked twice and stole his 23rd base.

A-: Hillsboro 3 @ Everett 0. Anderson Placido was almost unhittable with 5+ shutout innings on 3 hits and a walk while striking out a whopping 12 batters. The bullpen was up to the task as well with John Pedrotty following with 1.2 innings and 3 strikeouts. Mike Cetta pitched a perfect 8th and Jake Roberts got the save in spite of walking the bases full. Todd Glasemann went 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI to lead the offense. 8th round pick Grant Heyman went 2 for 4 with 2 RBI.
