The Blue Jays’ minor league system went 1 and 3.

 

Buffalo- The Herd fell behind early. Starter Nick Allgeyer allowed two RailRiders home runs and 6 runs in the 2nd and 3rd inning. Gabriel Moreno put the Herd on the board in the 3rd with an RBI single. In the 5th inning, Nick Podkul worked a bases-loaded walk to bring Logan Warmoth with Buffalo’s 2nd run. Graham Spraker and Joe Biagini weren’t dominant but they were effective, throwing four shutout innings, walking four, and striking out a pair. Adrian Hernandez continues to look good since his callup with a perfect 9th inning.

 

New Hampshire- Altoona jumped all over Maximo Castillo, touching him up for 6 runs. Fortunately, a 6-run 2nd inning put the Fisher Cats back in the driver’s seat. The Fisher Cats scored five home runs, a three-run home run, a two-run home run, and three solo home runs. Gabriel Ponce, Marcus Reyes, and Hagen Danner held the Curve to one run over the final four innings.

 

Vancouver- Eugene scored 2 runs in the 3rd and 4th inning, adding a run in each of the 5th, 6th, and 8th innings. Miguel Hiraldo put the C’s on the board with an RBI single in the 4th. In the 5th inning, Leo Jimenez brought Trevor Schwecke in to score on an infield ground ball and PK Morris singled home Jimenez, 3-5.

 

Dunedin- It was all Fort Myers in this one, scoring 7 runs on 7 hits including 3HR. The D-Jays finally broke the shutout with a solo home run off the bat of Adriel Sotolongo in the 7th inning. Justin Kelly was the only Dunedin pitcher with an answer for the hot Mussells bat. Kelly held FM to a pair of hits and no runs over 3.1IP.

 

Rehab Notes: Otto Lopez started at SS for Dunedin, going 0-for-3 with a K. Jordan Groshans started at 3rd for Dunedin, going 1-for-3.

Player Spotlight

 

Today we turn our attention to  Ryan Gold.

 

Drafted in the 27th round of the 2016 Draft, 24-yr-old Ryan Gold has amassed 375 games prior to the 2022 season. Gold split the 2021 season between Vancouver (63GP) and New Hampshire (21GP) batting .226 with a .330OBP, 25 doubles, 3 triples, and 6HR.

 

Ryan was behind the plate and batting 8th on Saturday. His first at-bat came in the 2nd inning, a single to RF. Gold scored on John Aiello’s 3-run home run. Gold singled in the 3rd inning and 5th innings. He drew a leadoff walk in the 8th inning. The native of La Habra, CA., finished 3-for-3 with a run scored and a walk.

 

In 12 at-bats, Ryan Gold is batting .417 with 0 HR, 3RBI, 0 stolen base, and a 1.000OPS. He should see some time at 1st and DH but so far he’s been behind the plate for all 5 of his games.
