Tigers minor league report: Moya still struggling

Steven Moya

Triple A Toledo

Who's hot …

Buck Farmer, RH starter : Very likely to get a call this week as a rotation replacement should Kyle Ryan return to the bullpen, as is anticipated. Farmer has a shot at winning a regular job in 2016. He is 7-2 in 13 starts, with a 3.47 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. Farmer is 6-4, 225, and in 2013 was a fifth-round pick from Georgia Tech.

And who's not …

Steven Moya, OF : He could have been a call-up when Miguel Cabrera hit the disabled list. But not when you're batting .233 in your last 10 games and .236 on the season, with a .707 OPS. Tigers have always insisted Moya will hit. He's still 23 and should develop. But 2015 has not been kind.

Double A Erie

Who's hot …

Tommy Collier, RH starter : He's 2-0, with a 2.47 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in seven starts since being promoted from Single A Lakeland. Collier, 25, is 6-2, 205, and in 2011 was a 22nd-round pick from San Jacinto Community North College.

Josh Turley, RH starter : He has a chance, largely because of his knuckleball, and just as much because his 2015 season has been consistent: 2.44 ERA in his last 10 games, 2.75 ERA in 15 starts overall. Turley's WHIP is 1.22. He doesn't walk many batters. And, at age 24, and with that knuckler, you never know. Turley was a 16th-round draft pick in 2012 (Baylor).

And who's not …

Wade Gaynor, 3B : Having a lousy summer, particularly of late. Gaynor, 27, is batting .133 in his last 10 games and .186 for 2015. He's a former third-round pick (2009) who simply hasn't become the player Detroit thought it was getting with a valuable early draft turn.

Single A Lakeland

Who's hot …

Montreal Robertson, RH reliever : 0.98 ERA in his last 10 games. Robertson during that stretch has 17 strikeouts and seven walks in 181/3innings and allowed only 10 hits. He turned 25 in June, is 6-4, 205, and is an Arkansas native who was a 29th-round choice from Coahoma Community College.

Javier Betancourt, 2B : Having a good month, especially when his age (he turned 20 in May) is factored into that .317 batting average in his last 10 games (.264 on the season). Betancourt is 6-foot, 180, and was signed out of Santa Teresa, Venezuela.

Single A West Michigan

Who's hot …

Joe Jimenez, RH reliever : Going to be a fair number of clubs inquiring about Jimenez should the Tigers do any July dealing. Jimenez, 20, might be the best relief pitcher in the Tigers system. Only 20, he has a 1.88 ERA, an 0.92 WHIP, and a .165 opposing batting average in 24 games. He has struck out 37 and walked eight in 24 innings. Jimenez is 6-3, 220.

And who's not …

Joey Pankake, 2B : A good prospect is going through a rough stretch: .184 in his last 10 games. Pankake was a seventh-round pick in 2014 (South Carolina). He is 22, bats right-handed, and stands 6-2.

Single A Connecticut

Who's hot …

Cam Gibson, OF : Has an .890 OPS in five games for the Tigers, with two home runs. Gibson, 21, was a fifth-round pick in June from Michigan State. And it is widely known he is the son of former Tigers star and coach, and current Tigers broadcaster, Kirk Gibson.

Drew Smith, RH starter : He was last month's third-round pick from Dallas Baptist and has pitched niftily in his first three shots at Connecticut: 1.29 ERA, seven innings, four hits, 10 strikeouts, two walks. Smith, 21, is 6-2, 155.

And who's not …

Jose Azocar, OF : Azocar is all of 19and had an .087 batting average in seven games before he was returned to the Gulf Coast League.

GCL Tigers (Rookie)

Who's hot …

Alfred Gutierrez, RH starter : Has a 1.23 WHIP in three starts for the Tigers, spanning 13 innings. Has struck out 12 and walked two. Gutierrez is 6-foot, 143, and was signed out of Nueva Esparta, Venezuela.

And who's not …

Cole Baumi, OF : He was a 10th-round June grab by the Tigers out of Northern Kentucky and has not transitioned smoothly from the Bluegrass state: .042 batting average in his first nine games. Baumi is 6-2, 205, and bats left-handed.
