Around the Farm 5/1/19: Owen White gets TJ surgery

Around the Farm 5/1/19

Welcome to around the farm. I attempt to take us around each game played in the Texas Rangers farm system from the day before.

This is around the farm 5/1/19


There was another prospect of the Rangers that underwent Tommy John surgery today. Owen White was drafted in the 2nd round in 2018. He was on the de-load program that the Rangers are trying for Rookie pitchers out of high school. Maybe they need to reconsider that program.

Then there is this:

We will keep an eye out for any injury news on A.J. Alexy.

Nashville Sounds (8-18)

Sounds lose to the Omaha Storm Chasers 4-2.

Tim Dillard (6.52) started for the Sounds and pitched 5 innings. He allowed 4 runs, 2 earned on 5 hits, 1 walk and 2 strikeouts.

Kyle Bird (4.26) pitched 2 scoreless innings out of the pen. He allowed 2 hits and struck out 3.


Andy Ib??ez went 2-3 hitting his 3rd home run of the year. He had 2 RBI, 1 walk and a strikeout and is hitting .265 on the year.

Jett Bandy went 0-3 with a strikeout and had the throwing error.

Frisco RoughRiders (17-9)

The RoughRiders beat the Arkansas Travelers by a final of 4-1.

Jonathan Hern?ndez (2-2, 5.91) got the start for the Riders and pitched 5 innings on his way to his 2nd win. He allowed 1 run on 4 hits, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. His average is up to .264 right now.


Preston Beck went 3-4 with a run and an RBI. His average is at .264 right now. He was the only one in the line-up with a multi hit game.

Down East Wood Ducks (19-8)

The Wood Ducks beat the Myrtle Beach Pelicans by a final of 8-3.

A.J. Alexy (5.12) got the start for the Wood Ducks. He only lasted 2 innings before he left the game with an apparent injury. During the 2 innings, he allowed 3 runs on 3 hits, 4 walks and 2 strikeouts.

Shout out to Sal Mendez (1-0, 2.61) for pitching 5.2 scoreless innings earning his first win. He didn’t allow a hit and only walked 1 while striking out 6.


Most everyone in the line-up got a hit and several had multiple hits.

Leody Taveras went 4-5 with 2 runs and a strikeout and is hitting .327.

Anderson Tejeda went 2-4 with 2 runs an RBI and a walk. He is hitting .309 on the year.

Diosbel Arias went 3-5 with a run, 2 RBI and a strikeout. He is hitting .351 on the year.

Hickory Crawdads (18-7)

The Crawdads beat the Greenville Drive 11-6.

Hans Crouse pitched only 4 innings and allowed 3 runs on 7 hits. He struck out 4 and didn’t walk anyone.


The Crawdads had 4 stolen bases. 1 each from Chris Seise, Matt Whatley, Jonathan Ornelas and Frainyer Chavez.

Sam Huff has become a legit power threat. He leads the team and every Rangers affiliate, including the Rangers with 13.

He went 1-4 with his 13th HR, 2 runs, 4 RBI, 1 BB and 1 strikeout. His average is .321 and his OPS is 1.200.

Jonathan Ornelas went 3-5 with a run, RBI, 1 walk and a strikeout. He is hitting .359 on the year.

Pedro Gonzalez went 3-3 with a run and 2 walks. He is hitting .247 on the year and also had an Outfield assist.

That does it for this post of Around the Farm 5/1/19.
