High A Dish: Reddick Contributes To Lancaster Bombs

California League

Prospect Of The Day

Outfielder Josh Reddick hit two of Lancaster’s (Red Sox) seven home runs in a 15-3 mashing of High Desert (Mariners). The 2006 17th-round pick finished the night 4-for-4 with three RBIs and three runs scored.

Reddick started the season in low Class A Greenville, where he hit 18 home runs in 2007, but moved after a couple of weeks and is now hitting .364/.383/.582 for the JetHawks in 55 at-bats.

Carolina League

Prospect Of The Day

Lefthander Daniel Moskos went 6 2/3 innings, giving up six hits while striking out three. He didn’t allow any runs or walks and the game was called after eight innings because of rain.

That was Moskos’ best outing so far this season and he now sits at 3-1, 3.72 in 36 innings.

Prospect Nuggets

There’s not much to write about when rain messes with games. The Potomac-Kinston game was the only one to go a full nine innings. The Winston-Salem vs. Salem game was suspended after six innings and the game was tied 0-0.

Righthander Pedro Beato had the tough task of facing Moskos and went four innings, allowing just one run on one hit and one walk while striking out one…Third baseman Jared Goedert added a double and finished with a 2-for-4 night with two runs scored.

What To Watch For Today

Lefthander Ross Detwiler takes his 1-2, 5.18 record to the hill against a hot-hitting Kinston squad.

Florida State League

Prospect Of The Day

Righthander Deolis Guerra’s outing wasn’t spectacular, but quite frankly, he didn’t have much competition. We’ll also give him credit for not walking anyone. Guerra went six innings against St. Lucie (Mets) allowing two runs on five hits while striking out one.

He’s now 3-1, 4.32 in 33 innings and has been conservative in the walk department since giving out five free passes on April 10.

Prospect Nuggets

Righthander Jeremy Hellickson was denied a win after a blown save, but pitched well in his own right, throwing 5 2/3, allowing an unearned run on six hits while walking one and striking out three…Righthander Kenny Rodriguez hasn’t lived up to his one-hitter that he threw in his first start. After throwing 5 1/3 and allowing three runs on seven hits and taking a loss, he is 0-4, 5.59 since the one-hitter.

What To Watch For

Righthander Luis Marte has been impressive for Lakeland (Tigers) and will face Vero Beach (Rays) today at 7 p.m. EDT.
