Troy Tulowitzki

Codey Harrison (Lead Editor & President/Ceo) – Generally amongst the greatest baseball minds players who play in the middle of the field are considered the most valuable, and most sought after posistions when making a team. Whether its catchers, second baseman, shortstops, or center fielders most general managers will tell you it is impossible to have to many of players at these premium positions. The only problem is these are generally light hitting players at these posistions, who only start because of the above average defense. So when a team has a great hitter at these premium positions ala Miguel Montero (Catcher), Robinson Cano (Second baseman), Troy Tulowitzki (shortstop), or Matt Kemp (Center fielder) their teams are quick to sign them to massive contracts because they understand these types of players rarly come around.

1.) Cleveland Indians – Carlos Santana/Jason Kipnis/Asdrubal Cabrera/Drew Stubbs/Michael Bourn

2.) Atlanta Braves – Brian McCann/Dan Uggla/Alfreido Simmons/BJ Upton

3.) New York Yankees – Chris Stewart/Robinson Cano/Derek Jeter/Curtis Granderson

4.) Baltimore Orioles – Matt Wieters/Brian Roberts/J.J. Hardy/Adam Jones

5.) Toronto Blue Jays – J.P Arencibia/Emilio Bonifacio/Jose Reyes/Colby Rasmus

Nick Crawford: (Arizona Diamondbacks Beat writer for BHPBaseball) – It was a tough night in the Diamondbacks as all but one of their full seasons team and MLB team lost on Tuesday. The good news is top LHP prospect Tyler Skaggs starts the first game of Wednesdays double-header.

Single A Visalia Rawhide VS San Jose

Taylor Siemens gets the win tonight 7-5 for the Rawhide improving his record to 4-6 on the season. For San Jose Jack Snodgrass gets the loss dropping his record to 10-7 on the season. Freeman & Griffin Record a multi-hit night. The Visalia Rawhide score 6 runs in the fourth and that would prove to be too much for San Jose to recover. Visalia Rawhide end up being the only Diamondbacks team to record a win on the night.

AA Mobile Baybears VS Jackson Generals

Today Michael Bolsinger takes the mound for the Baybears (4-2, 3.45ERA) vs James Gillheeney (0-1, 3.55ERA).

Brent Clevlen continues to rake in AA for the Baybears adding another multi hit night to his resume. My son took hitting lessons from Brent while he was in AAA Reno, his approach at the plate is aggressive and he hits real hard! Even Frey with a 3 for 5 performance and a walk. Frey had 2 doubles and a RBI. Perez Rossmel goes 3 for 4. But your Mobile BayBears lose to the Jackson Generals 7 to 5. All but one player on the generals had a multi hit night.

AAA Reno Aces VS Tacoma

A miserable night for the Reno aces as they lose the game 15 to 4 today to The Tacoma Rainers. Not a good night for Zack Kroenke as he gives up nine hits, nine runs 4 earned & three walks, and four strikeouts in 4 innings. Brian Henry pitches 4 innings & he gives up seven hits & five runs, (five earned)  three walks and five strikeouts. Henry gives up three long balls while Kroenke  gives up one HR. Kroenke is charged with the loss moving him down to 6-4 on the season. On a good night Josh Bell goes two for three with two home runs, two runs scored, two RBIs and a walk. Konrad Schmidt also has a good game going two for four with a double and a RBI. The aces now return home to kick off a five game series against the Fresno grizzlies. Pitching phenom Trevor Bauer (5-1, 2.74ERA) gets the nod for Reno while winless right-handed pitcher Booth Bonser (0-2, 6.0ERA) toes the mound for the grizzlies.

Marlin VS Dbacks

The Dbacks wipe the sour taste of last nights game out of their mouth by jumping all over the starter Ricky Nolasco 5-0 after the 1st inning. The Dbacks send 9 batters to the plate in the first. The marlins would not waste much time getting on the board with 2 runs in the 2nd by knocking around Trevor Cahill.  The Marlins score another run in the 4th & in the 6th to erase a 5-0 lead. Stanton hit a ball down the line for a double that was blistered to the corner. If i had to describe Stanton’s swing with one word it would be VIOLENT. The bullpen comes in and pitches great for both teams. Dbacks had 2 on with 1 out and Heath Bell gets Elmore to ground out. Bell throws a 95 MPH fastball to end the inning stranding 2 baserunners. Top of 9th tie game the marlins get another hit out of Donovan Solano and he is 3 for 3. Brantley flys out to left, Murphy pinch hits and he pops up. so now we go to the bottom of the 9th tied. Chad Gaudin in to pitch for the Marlins and Young grounds out, Arron Hill flys out deep to right field on the warning track. Jason Kubel walks, & Goldschmidt fans at a 83 MPH breaking ball. so now we head to the 10th. Sam Demel in to pitch the 10th for the Dbacks. Gorkys legs out an infield base hit, Petersen with a sac bunt, Reyes intentionally walked. Lee then hits a sac fly to move Gorkys to 3rd. Stanton then steps to the plate with ice in his veins and determination in his eyes and absolutely  murders a ball to right field for a RBI & most importantly the lead! Dobbs flys out for out number 3. Steve Cishek
in to close Facing Parra striking him out,  Montero K’s on a 93 MPH fastball. Wheeler with a broke bat single and Jake Elmore walks. McDonald grounds out for out 3 and Cishek gets the Save! GIANCARLO STANTON STRIKES AGAIN!

On behalf of the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Miami Marlins, @BHPBaseball, we’d like to send our thoughts and prayers to MLB Player Union Chief & best wishes to Michael Weiner, a great guy,  who is being treated for a brain tumor. #SpeedyRecovery

I am a baseball and softball player that plays over 200 games a year traveling all over to play in tournaments on the weekends. I have coached baseball for over 10 years at various levels including my son’s team. My passion for this game we all love is unmatched. I am a huge Florida sports fan across the board Marlins Dolphins Heat are my favorite teams. I am also a huge Arizona Diamondbacks fan & since Nevada doesn’t have a pro team I follow the AAA Reno Aces, the Diamondbacks farm system.

Nick Crawford: Today the Dbacks hope to erase last nights game from their memory… Today they hope to do that with Starting pitcher Trevor  Cahill (9-10 3.75ERA) and the Marlins look to counter that move with Big Ricky  Nolasco (9-12 4.94ERA). But if the Dbacks want to win this ball game they may want to consider not pitching to Giancarlo  Stanton and Jose  Reyes. Reyes was 4 for 5 last night with 3 doubles & the Man child known as Stanton had 2 massive home runs and 4RBI’s. If the Marlins want to win this game Nolasco has to pound the zone down and inside tonight and pitch around Jason  Kubel. The Dbacks want to jump out to an early lead and force Ozzie Guillen to go to the bullpen early. Ozzie did the best thing he could have done all year and that was to place Justin  Ruggiano behind Stanton in the line up. With Ruggiano batting .333 on the season you don’t really want to walk Stanton to get to someone who has a higher AVG. But Gibson just might take that approach tonight and roll the dice.

TRADE/MOVES: The Dbacks make a few roster changes in the past 24 hours, one move was to Trade Stephen  Drew to the Athletics for a farm short stop named Sean  Jamieson and to unload on some $ owed to Drew. I have got to meet Drew personally while on his rehab in Reno and I wish him the very best on his future in the Biggs, there isn’t a classier guy and better teammate than Drew.

The Dbacks also call on southpaw Tyler  Skaggs to come pitch Game 2 of Wednesday’s double header. Skaggs is the #2 pitching prospect for the Dbacks right now and some would argue that he is #1. Skaggs has great movement on his pitches & is a great kid. Skaggs has a 2.91 ERA and is 4-2 in the PCL this year, he was acquired from the Angels in the Dan  Haren deal that also brought young gunner Corbin and Saunders to the Dbacks.

The Marlins hand the ball to Jacob  Turner their #1 pitching prospect that they received in a recent trade to face Wade  Miley in-game 1 of the double-header tomorrow.

On behalf of the Marlins and the Dbacks I would like to send thoughts and prayers to Michael Weiner the MLB players union Chief who is undergoing treatment for a brain tumor, We all wish you well and a speedy recovery! God Bless.
