Welcome to the second edition of our Morning Roll Call. To those of you who read our site on a daily basis, thank you very much. This is a hobby for us, and we’d probably do it regardless of how many people read this stuff every day, it is rewarding to see people learning from our content and enjoying it as well.
If you read here frequently, you’re probably familiar with our daily “Minor League Minutes” column. It’s basically just a link dump that we use every morning to catch you up with all of “yesterday’s” action. So for instance, when you read yesterday morning’s “Minor League Minutes: 7/16/19“, the goal was to help you catch up on news from 7/15/19.
Now we’re going to introduce you to a new daily article. We’re preliminarily going to call this the “Morning Roll Call”, as I’m sure you read in the title. The goal is to give you information on all of “today’s” games, starting pitchers, and maybe highlight a few hitters who are on hot streaks at the moment. You’ve probably seen us post our “Morning Roll Calls” on Twitter, this should just help us to keep better track of that kind of stuff on the website.
So, without further ado, here’s our second go at a Morning Roll Call:
DSL Royals1 @ 9:30 am
DSL Royals2 @ 9:30 am
Burlington Royals @ 5:30 pm
Starting Pitcher: Delvin Capellan
Wilmington Blue Rocks @ 6:00 pm
Starting Pitcher: Austin Cox
Notes: This game will be on MiLB.tv, unlike most of Wilmington’s games, because they are in Winston-Salem.
Dennicher Carrasco has been really good for Wilmington for most of the season, but he’s been especially good of late. He hit his 7th HR of the season last night and has a 115 wRC+ since April 23rd. In a league that’s usually controlled by pitchers, Carrasco has been pretty good for an otherwise limp Blue Rocks offense.
Lexington Legends @ 6:05 pm
Starting Pitcher: Charlie Neuweiler
Northwest Arkansas Naturals @ 6:15 pm
Starting Pitcher: Gerson Garabito
Omaha Storm Chasers @ 7:05 pm
Starting Pitcher: Eric Skoglund
