Join Jays From The Couch Every Morning For Your Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Recap as well as Bichette and Conine Updates

 

I was so tired yesterday from the post-vacation activities I completed that I passed out trying to watch the All-Star game. But I still managed to get a podcast in with my boy Shaun Doyle. If you haven’t listened, do so now. (link).

 

July 9th was a light schedule with the D-Jays being rained out, Lansing/Bluefield/GCL with scheduled off days, Buffalo and NH on an All-Star hiatus. This left just the C’s and the DSL Blue Jays which I will be including in today’s recap.

Top Performers:

Player of the Day

Wednesday, July 10th POD goes to Troy Miller

 

The 22-yr-old righty went undrafted, signing as a free agent on July 25th, 2018. Miller made 9 appearances out of the bullpen for the Vancouver Canadians, going 0-0 with a 3.46ERA while walking 10 batters and striking out 15 over 13.0IP.

 

Miller joined the Lansing Lugnuts on May 4th, making his first of 12 starts. He’s not been great but he’s eating innings (a compliment, not an insult) for the Bolts. He was better than an inning-eater on Wednesday, throwing 60 of his 90 pitches for strikes. He got 6 groundball outs and 4 flyball outs, facing 24 batters.

 

Troy Miller went 1-2-3 in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd (striking out the side), 5th, and 6th innings. Miller a pair of singles in the 4th inning to lose his no-hit bid but got a double-play ball hit to 3rd baseman Johnny Aiello and a strikeout to end the threat.

 

The Peoria Chiefs finally got to Miller in the 7th inning with 2-outs. Miller surrendered a double and a single before striking Leandro Cedeno for the 3rd out and Miller’s final batter of the evening.

 

Overall, 6-foot-4 righty out of Aptos, CA., owns a 3-3 record with 4.40ERA. He’s struggled with the BB, allowing 31 over 59.1IP while striking out 44 (8 in this start). Miller has a 1.49WHIP, 5.51FIP, and 5.29xFIP. His 36.4GB% needs to improve as does his 5.33BB/9.

 

The Bo Bichette and Griffin Conine Show

 

Bo Bichette…..All-Star break.

 

Griffin Conine went 1-for-4 with a pair of runs scored (29), a HR (11), two RBI (30), a walk (16), and a strikeout (56). He owns a 1.091OPS through 35 games with Lansing.
