Padres Minor League Roundup For August 21

Triple-A: El Paso Chihuahuas (63-69)

The El Paso Chihuahaus lost to the Oklahoma City RedHawks 9-5 last night in front of an attendance of just over 5,000 people. Last night Joe Wieland, who is still making his way back from Tommy John surgery, made his second start at the Triple-A level this season. Wieland did not have a great night on the mound; he lasted 5 innings allow 5 earned runs on 7 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4. Despite his recent poor start he has been pitching well as he has works through numerous level. Across three minor league levels, Wieland owns a 3.81 ERA on the season with 25 strikeouts and only 4 walks in 26 innings pitched. As a fan, I like to see that his control has been solid and that he seems to be past the numerous setbacks he has had since his surgery. I am not sure if he will be called up when rosters expand in September or have to wait until next season, but I think he will be in the competitive entering next spring for a roster spot. You can never have too much pitching.
