Milwaukee Brewers Farm Report: Biloxi Shuckers Weekly


The Biloxi Shuckers have been the Milwaukee Brewers best farm team all season. While they are coming off of their second straight losing week (they went two and three in five games this past week) and they are currently fourth in the Southern League South second half standings, the 53 overall wins are the most in all of the Southern League.

This upcoming week the Shuckers will look to get back on track as they have a two game match-up with Mobile, before a five game match-up against Pensacola. Battling two teams currently ahead of them in the standings, they could quickly gain ground.

To open the week the Shuckers will have plenty of talent on the mound as Jorge Lopez and Wily Peralta will battle the Bay Bears. Lopez has dominated for the past month and a half, while Peralta looks to build off of his excellent second rehab start.

As a team that has battled all season, the Shuckers boast some of the most exciting talent in the entire system. After struggling through his first few days in AA, slugger Victor Roache is starting to find his swing. He is batting .273 over his past ten games and he added two multi-hit games this past week. He has homered twice already and as he settles in expect his power numbers to continue to grow.

Player of the Week: Orlando Arcia

Star shortstop prospect, Orlando Arcia has started the second half very similar to his first half. Through his last ten games, he is batting .341 as he continues to be one of the best hitters in the minor leagues. As he continues to excel at the plate his future super-star status continues to rise.

Pitcher of the Week: Wily Peralta

He only pitched in 3.2 innings in his start, but Peralta has shown that he is getting closer to a big league return. In his start, Peralta didn’t allow a run and struck out three. He will start again on Tuesday and when he is added back to the rotation in Milwaukee, he could help to give the Brewers a very intriguing top of the rotation.
