Angels Farm Daily 7/12: Duke Sez, "The Future Is Now."

New, 13 comments

We're back, baby! And we're better than ever. Well, not really. All but one Angels' farm team lost yesterday. And they were tough ones. But Sean Newcomb represented the Angels in the 2015 All-Star Futures Game and did not disappoint.

Box Scores for Friday, July 10, 2015 here. Pretty rough go-around for the Angels' affiliates on Friday. Not too many wins. However, the Travs beat the Midland Rockhounds (OAK) by scoring two runs off of a rehabbing Ryan Doolittle, which is no small feat.

Box Scores for Saturday, July 11, 2015 here. Nick Tropeano took the loss for the Salt Lake Bees by giving up four runs (only two earned) on seven hits. He struck out eight batters, though, and Cory Rasmus threw a perfect inning by striking out the side. Ryan Etsell of the 66ers continued his work as a starter, earning his fifth win by throwing six innings of four-run ball. In Orem, Hutton Moyer (2B) hit his third dinger of the year in a 6-2 victory over the Helena Brewers (MIL).

Inland Empire's very own Sean Newcomb threw a perfect inning in the 2015 All-Star Futures Game as the U.S. team routed the World team, 10-1. Check out the writeup from Bleacher Report (I know, I know):

Sean Newcomb (1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K)

A big 6'5" left-hander, Sean Newcomb has 106 strikeouts in 83.1 innings so far this season, and he certainly looks the part of a future impact starter at the big league level. His fastball reached 96 mph and he paired it with a good looping curveball in the mid-70s while displaying smooth mechanics.

Grade: A

Double-A: Arkansas Travelers

Standout Stats

DAT LINE! Just look at that. Nine Ks. He struck out the Frisco Roughriders (TEX) nine times! Sorry, I just love using that link.

Class A Advanced: Inland Empire 66ers

Standout Stats

Nope. Not a one. Pathetic performance by the 66ers' offense last night.

What a performance by the pitching, though, and what a tough, tough loss. How do you get the loss without giving up an earned run?! Ah, a throwing error by second-baseman Andrew Daniel to start the seventh and wild pitch by Cooney near the end of the inning. That's how.

Class A: Burlington Bees

Standout Stats

Yup. This was the best stat line of the night for the offense. Sigh.

It's my man, Keynan, of course he's getting the standout line. But really, not a bad start. Too many hits given up, and yeah, one of them was a dinger, but he limited the damage to only two earned runs against a very good team.

Rookie: Orem Owlz

Standout Stats

FIVE ribeye steak chops for Jamie Moyer's kid. Nice job, Mutton...er, Hutton.

It's possible to stand out by doing poorly as well. Ugh.

Rookie: AZL Angels

Not the cleanest line of the night for the AZL Angels, but man, I like this kid. He continues to impress.
