TEMPE Tyler Anderson Jersey , Ariz. — West and wild-card races, the Arizona Diamondbacks can feel the relevance in every pitch.San Diego, for its part, is hoping that its younger players also can take something from the exposure to a playoff atmosphere, even if it is from the other side of the field.The Padres stopped the Diamondbacks 6-2 behind Franmil Reyes‘ first career two-homer game in the first game of a two-game mini-series at Chase Field on Monday, the first of five games remaining between the two this season. The Padres also have series remaining against contenders Seattle and the DodgersArticle continues below ...“These games are going to mean a lot to that club, and it’s a chance for us to make it hard on them,” San Diego manager Andy Green said of the Arizona games.“And then we are going to go into Dodger Stadium in the middle of the month and have an opportunity to go against a team that we can make it very hard on. For the guys that pitch on those days, they are going to feel what it feels like pitching in a September playoff race.“We can’t artificially create that when we go to Cincinnati (this weekend). Those games are going to be equally important for us to win, but I think I’m excited for the opportunity to see our guys tested in the venues this month.”Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray (4-2) is to face San Diego left-hander Joey Lucchesi (7-7) in the second game of the short two-game set Tuesday.Arizona has lost four in a row and six of eight, during which it has scored 14 runs, with a high of three.“Obviously it is not ideal the way we have been swinging the bats,” said veteran catcher Alex Avila, who has been through successful stretch runs before with Detroit and the Cubs.“You can’t let that overtake you and cloud your mind on a daily basis. It’s just a matter of time. There will be a day when we break out of it. It’s a tough game, so you just have to keep plugging away.”The D-backs will commence a streak of 20 consecutive games against teams that are .500 or better with a four-game home series against NL East-leading Atlanta that begins Thursday.Their next road trip is a seven-gamer to Colorado (four games) and Houston followed by a nine-game homestand that includes three-game series against the Cubs, Colorado and the Dodgers. They finish up with three games in San Diego.Ray http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , who has a 4.55 ERA, has given up only one run in each of his past two starts while walking the tightrope, having given up 15 base runners in his previous 10 1/3 innings.When Ray throws strikes, he is tough to hit — he has 16 strikeouts in his last two outings and is averaging 11.9 strikeouts per nine innings, second only to Washington’s Max Scherzer (12.0) among NL starters. Ray missed eight weeks with a strained oblique muscle earlier in the season and has thrown 91 innings in his 18 starts.Ray has worked with pitching coach Mike Butcher on finishing his delivery more on line, with his plant foot facing home plate when he lands so that he is not throwing across his body.He said he felt that click in a no-decision start against Seattle on Aug. 25, when he gave up one run in five innings. He struck out nine in five innings in a 3-1 victory over the Dodgers in his most recent start last Thursday.“I felt locked in mentally and mechanically,” Ray said after the Seattle outing. “Just a small change like that makes a huge difference. It honestly feels fine either way, but just the result of the pitch isn’t exactly where I want it to be when I close myself off.”Ray has made two starts against the Padres this season without a decision while giving up seven runs and nine walks in 8 2/3 innings.Rookie Lucchesi, who sports a 3.59 ERA in 21 starts, had made two consecutive quality starts after giving up five runs in four innings of a 9-4 loss to Arizona at Petco Park on Aug. 17.His last two losses have come against the Diamondbacks, and he has had limited success against them this season, going 0-4 with a 7.71 ERA in four starts, two at home and two on the road. Arizona has five homers and 16 runs off him in 18 2/3 innings.Paul Goldschmidt and Nick Ahmed have two homers apiece off Lucchesi this season and A.J. Pollock has one. While the Fire Frogs don’t have a ton of the marquee names that populated the Braves’ upper minors, there is no lack of high ceiling guys."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Talking Chop User’s GuideTalking Chop PodcastAround the NL EastBaseball Analysis Primer2019 Florida Fire Frogs Roster PreviewNew,20commentsWhile the Fire Frogs don’t have a ton of the marquee names that populated the Braves’ upper minors http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , there is no lack of high ceiling guys.EDTShareTweetShareShare2019 Florida Fire Frogs Roster PreviewFreddy Tarnok will be at high-A as a member of a very talented pitching staff.Photo Credit: Garrett SpainThe Florida Fire Frogs have been one of the more interesting affiliates for the Braves to watch since it has been used as a quick stop for many of the Braves’ top prospects in recent years. While some players have spent full seasons there, many have used the high-A affiliate as a springboard to ascend the minors in a hurry. We saw this with guys like Ronald Acuna Jr., Bryse Wilson, Kyle Muller, Austin Riley, Cristian Pache, and others. As a result, one of the things to watch this coming season will be which players were seemingly placed in high-A with a eye on being moved up quickly as the season goes on. Here is a rundown of the Fire Frogs roster.Pitching StaffTroy Bacon - RHP, Tristan Beck - RHP, Walter Borkovich - RHP, Hayden Deal - LHP, Cutter Dyals - RHP, Daysbel Hernandez - RHP, Justin Kelly - LHP, Jon Kennedy - LHP, Sean McLaughlin - RHP Wade Davis Jersey , Freddy Tarnok - RHP, Keith Weisenberg - RHP, Brandon White - RHP, Huascar Ynoa - RHPThe big names here are in the rotation where presumably we will see Freddy Tarnok, Tristan Beck, and Huascar Ynoa who are all top 30 Braves prospects. Beck will be in his first season of full season ball and as a older, college draftee that some saw as a first round talent in drafts past, he could easily move up quickly as rotation spots in Double-A and Triple-A become available. Tarnok’s promotion is a pretty fascinating one because after an electric start in Rome’s bullpen in 2018, he was moved into the rotation where he had inconsistent results. However, there may not be a player with more raw arm talent in the Braves system and this promotion seems to indicate that the team likes how he is developing even if he may move slowly. Huascar Ynoa has a good fastball, but will have to work on his secondaries...however, the Braves added him to the 40 man roster so how his development is treated will be something to monitor. As for sleeper types, keep an eye on Hayden Deal. A completely unheralded prospect, Deal was lights out for Rome last year with a 2.17 ERA while striking out better than a batter and inning and he keeps the walks down. He started a handful of game for Rome and it will be interesting to see if he sees more time in the rotation in high-A and begins to emerge. Jon Kennedy and Brandon White are two relievers to keep an eye on as well with Kennedy being a tall, imposing lefty and Brandon White having a track record of success as a late inning guy in low-A and may be ready to take the next step before too long. CatchersWilliam Contreras, Zack Soria http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , Rusber EstradaThe biggest name here is clearly William Contreras who many expect to become one of the top catching prospects in baseball before too long. We like moving him along slowly as not only will the bat need more reps before it will play against true high quality pitching, but giving catchers time to develop their craft and technique is almost always good. He did see some time in high-A last season, so he could force his way to Double-A before too long if he excels.InfieldersRiley Delgado, A.J. Graffanino, Brett Langhorne, Drew Lugbauer, Riley UnroeThe Fire Frogs have two REALLY good defenders in Delgado and Graffanino and it will be important to see who gets the lion’s share of time at shortstop as well as see if their offensive outbursts from last season continue. Drew Lugbauer will now see a healthy amount of time at first base so he can focus on developing as a hitter although he is a guy that can catchor play third in a pinch as well.OutfieldersGreyson Jenista, Shean Michel, Jefrey Ramos, Isranel WilsonThe Fire Frogs have a talented outfield to start the season. Greyson Jenista hasn’t shown a ton of power in pro ball just yet, but he has it and with some work on his swing path, he could do some damage even in the homer-suppressing Florida State League. Ramos is a guy that is a bit streaky, but he is a high effort guy and has some pop. Izzy Wilson has all of the raw tools and athleticism one could want in a prospect. 2019 will be an important season to see if he can put it all together finally and improve his hit tool.
