Farmhand Of The Game:

Pitcher Carlos Hernandez

(6 IP / 5 H / 2 ER / 1 BB / 7 K)

 

LHP Carlos Hernandez had a solid outing for the RockHounds, allowing just 2 runs while striking out 7 over 6 innings of work, but he still ended up taking the loss on Monday. And with the imminent arrival of RHP Drew Granier, he could be in danger of losing his spot in the starting rotation as well. The RockHounds managed just 6 hits on the night, 2 apiece from catcher David Freitas and first baseman Anthony Aliotti.

In Other News…

The A’s officially announced the signing of their 4th overall draft pick, 1B-3B Ryon Healy, and their 8th overall pick, RHP Kyle Finnegan on Monday. And word has it that their 2nd overall pick, LHP Dillon Overton, and their 9th overall pick, RHP Dustin Driver, have apparently come to terms as well. That would leave the team’s 7th overall pick, RHP Bobby Wahl, as the only one of the A’s top 12 picks not to come to terms yet.
