Josh Jung made his professional debut for the AZL Rangers today, and in his first pro at bat he crushed a home run. He followed that up with a pair of singles and then a line out before being lifted from the game. Alexander Ovalles, who went 2 for 4 to raise his average to .377, was also lifted early, so maybe they had to both catch a flight to Spokane.

Brady Fiegl pitched a scoreless inning in a rehab outing as his works his way back from the injured list. 2018 draftee Destin Dotson threw 4 scoreless, allowing 3 hits, 1 walk and 5 Ks, and now has thrown 13.1 scoreless IP this year with 18 Ks.

Tim Brennan, a 2018 draft pick, was promoted from low-A Hickory to high-A Down East and made his Carolina League debut today. Brennan gave up 2 runs, 1 earned in 5 IP, allowing 6 hits, walking none and striking out 1. J.P. Martinez was 2 for 3 with a walk and a pair of steals, Curtis Terry had 3 hits, and Yohel Pozo had 2 hits. Sam Huff was out of the lineup after leaving yesterday’s game early, but is still on the active roster.

For Hickory, Jesus Linarez threw 4 IP, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits and 1 walk, and Kelvin Gonzalez, a 21 year old righthander acquired last August from Kansas City for international bonus pool money, threw two scoreless, lowering his ERA to 1.38. Offensively, Tyreque Reed had a homer and a single, Sherten Apostel had a double and a single, and Miguel Aparicio had a pair of doubles.

Jason Bahr threw 4 shutout innings for Frisco before running into problems in the fifth inning, when he allowed 4 runs while retiring just one batter. Isiah Kiner-Falefa continued his rehab assignment with a hit and a walk, and Charles Leblanc had a pair of hits.
