C’s Recap – C’s To Debut New Pitcher In Hillsboro

C's RecapThe Vancouver Canadians will emerge out out of the All-Star break with a new pitcher on the mound Thursday night. Righthander Colton Laws—the 7th round pick of the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2017 draft—will pitch in Hillsboro for the opener of their five-game series at Ron Tonkin Field.

 

The former University of North Carolina-Charlotte 49ers hurler launched his pro career in Bluefield and struck out 11 batters in 11 innings spread over three starts and three relief appearances.  The 21 year-old posted a microscopic earned run average of 0.82 and limited Appalachian League hitters to a .237 batting average. He measures in at 6-foot-7 and weighs 215 pounds. His first pro victory came July 2 against Bristol.

C-Notes

C's NotesCanadiansBaseball.com has a recap of the All-Star festivities involving C’s catcher Riley Adams and righthanders William Ouellette and Orlando Pascual.

Adams is fourth in the Northwest League in batting average at .310 and is third in doubles with 12. Ouellette and Pascual are among the leaders in appearances with Ouellette pitching in 15 games and Pascual having entered 14 contests along with teammate Bobby Eveld, tied for second and third most in the circuit. Ouellette is also one back of the saves lead in the NWL with six and two back in the games finished category with 12.

Reggie Pruitt is in a three-way tie for the stolen base lead with 20 while Kevin Vicuna is among the top basestealers with 14.

Outfielder Brock Lundquist has not seen any action since July 20 due to injury but is still tied for fourth in walks in the NWL with 21. During his time away, he decided to get rid of his moustache.

The other Vancouver Canadian I’ve seen that could rival Lundquist’s moustache game was 2012 lefthander Griffin Murphy.

In case you missed it—and I did—2013-2014 C’s catcher Mike Reeves decided to call it a career last week. All the best to the Peterborough, Ontario native in his future endeavours.

Also lost in the shuffle of the Blue Jays’ historic comeback victory over the Los Angeles Angels this past Sunday was the fact 2013 C’s lefthander Matt Dermody helped make the comeback possible with three innings of relief in which he allowed just an unearned run and was rewarded with his first major league victory.

Around the Twitterverse starts with an interview with 2014 C’s catcher Max Pentecost.

About Niall O'Donohoe

My name is Niall O’Donohoe and I am an avid follower of baseball, specifically Canada’s Teams – the Toronto Blue Jays and their affiliate, the Vancouver Canadians. My blog beginnings began in 2007 with Batter’s Box, where I’m still allowed to write stories, summaries and photos about the Blue Jays minor league system under the alias #2JBrumfield.

The blog formerly known as Niall On Baseball, C’s Plus Baseball follows the C’s from behind the lens at Nat Bailey Stadium. The reason for the name change was to reflect the main purpose of this blog, which is to deliver plus coverage of the C’s through photos and observations of the players striving to make it to the major leagues, be it with Toronto or one of the other 29 MLB teams. From time to time, I do make it to other baseball games outside of The Nat and will post about them here as well.
