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

 

The system went 3 and 1. Luis De Los Santos paced the system with 3 hits, all singles. There were a bunch of doubles hit by the Fisher Cats and a bunch of HR hit by the Bisons and Lugnuts. Christian Williams, Cullen Large, and Andy Burns each drove in a pair. Reid-Foley pitched well for the Bisons. Wymer saved the best for last in a complete game for the Lugnuts.

Player of the Day

Monday, September 2nd POD goes to the Sean Wymer

 

For much of the 2019 season, Sean Wymer struggled to find consistency. In the end, he managed to lead the Midwest League with 26 starts and 137.2 innings pitched but also 173 hits allowed and 89 runs allowed.

 

None those stats mattered as he took the mound for the Lugnuts season finale. The 22-yr-old righty threw 63 of his 85 pitches for strikes. He got 8 groundball outs and 9 flyball outs. Sean Wymer retired the first 7 batters he faced, issuing a one-out walk in the 3rd inning, the only free pass he’d allow.

 

After the walk, Wymer retired the next five. In the 5th, the TinCaps got Wymer on the ropes with three singles to start the frame. The Texan would get out of the jam allowing just a single run.

 

In the 7th, Sean allowed a leadoff single and a HBP to put runners on 1st and 2nd with nobody out. Wymer got a pop out, a flyout, and a K to escape unscathed. Between Dwanya Williams-Sutton being hit by pitch in the 7th and 9th inning, Sean Wymer retired 8 straight batters.

 

This was Wymer’s 1st professional complete game. It was the first time he pitched more than 6.2 innings. An excellent way to finish the season, congrats.

 

The Kevin Smith and Griffin Conine Show

 

Kevin Smith played SS and batted cleanup for the Fisher Cats. Smith went 2-for-5 with a double (22), and an RBI (61). He is batting just .209 with 49 runs scored, 22 doubles, 2 triples, 19HR, 11SB, and 151K in 116GP. Smith finishes with the most strikeouts in the EL.

 

Griffin Conine played RF and batted 3rd. Griffin went 2-for-4 with a home run, an RBI, and a strikeout. He ends the season on a 6-game hit streak. Griffins finishes with a .283BA with 19 doubles, 2 triples, 22HR, 64RBI, 124K and a .946OPS in 79GP. Conine finishes with the league lead in HR but his OPS doesn’t qualify.
