Sunday, May 18 - Greensboro 2, Augusta 0

 

Chris Johnson:

Johnson was assigned to Augusta and made his 2014 debut in this game. He only went two innings on pitch count, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks. He didn't strike out a batter.

Saturday, May 17 - Augusta 4, Greensboro 3 (11 innings)

 

Christian Jones:

Jones has basically reinvented himself as a pitcher overnight. This was my first look at his new two-seam fastball he reportedly began throwing during the recent road trip, which helped result in a near-no-hitter at Hickory. It lived up to the billing as a solid offering, sitting 86-88 with excellent tailing action and resulted in several ground balls.

Friday, May 16 - Augusta 2, West Virginia 1

 

Matt Lujan:

Lujan has been the definition of consistent. He succeeded over a full season with Augusta in 2013, but they sent him back for another trip. He has responded by being one of the better starters in the South Atlantic League through six starts and eight total appearances.

The GreenJackets rallied for two eighth-inning runs to beat the Power 2-1 on Thursday night, a change from how the season has gone so far for the Augusta lineup.

Thursday, May 15 - Augusta 2, West Virginia 1

 

Carlos Diaz:

Diaz was pretty impressive in this start. He got the most out of his stuff, allowing just one run (which wasn't completely his fault) on two hits with three walks and seven strikeouts. Manager Mike Goff said the only knock was two-out walks, but Goff was very high on Diaz after this outing.

San Francisco Giants 2013 first-round draft pick Christian Arroyo was diagnosed with a sprained left thumb, according to Augusta GreenJackets manager Mike Goff.

 

Arroyo, Augusta's second baseman, was pulled from Saturday's game at Hickory after two at-bats. He was placed on the disabled list two days later and was sent to spring camp in Arizona.

 

Goff said Arroyo should return to Augusta "in a couple weeks."

Wednesday, May 14 - West Virginia 5, Augusta 4 (10 innings)

 

Keury Mella:

I might love this guy too much for my own good, but I just enjoy watching him throw. He was 95-97 in the first two innings and settled into 93-94 after that. His fastball had heavy, sinking action, breaking more than one bat and sawing off multiple hitters. It resulted in 16 ground balls, most of which were pounded into the ground. He kept it in the zone and worked both sides with pretty good command.
