ZACH JARRETT (Class A Delmarva, Md.)

Zach Jarrett — who starred in high school at Hickory and in college at Charlotte – is an outfielder for the Shorebirds, who beat visiting Kannapolis 4-0 before 3,677 on Saturday night.


Jarrett batted third in the Shorebirds’ order, starting in centerfield, and went 2-for-4 with a double, scored a run and drove in two as Delmarva improved to dropped to 36-34 overall and 1-2 in the second half in the SAL Northern Division standings.

In 67 games this season, Jarrett’s batting .310 with 17 doubles, a triple, 10 home runs and 38 RBIs. He’s hitting .417 in his last 10 games with no home runs and five RBIs.

Jarrett is one of 10 players in the SAL hitting at least .300, and his average is sixth-best in the league. He is one of a dozen SAL players in double-figure home runs, with Seuly Matias of Lexington (Ky.) leading the league with 23.





HAYDEN DEAL (Class A Rome, Ga.)

Former Bandys High star Hayden Deal, a left-hander, did not pitch on Saturday night when Augusta (Ga.) beat the Braves 1-0 in 10 innings before 4,975 in Augusta.

Deal last pitched on Thursday night at Augusta and had his first bad outing as a Braves player, allowing four earned runs and two home runs in a 6-1 loss.

Deal relieved Odalvi Javier to start the second inning and gave up a solo home run in that inning to Ryan Kirby. He gave up a three-run shot to Jacob Gonzalez in the fifth inning.

Deal pitched four innings, walking one and striking out three. He threw 63 pitches, 38 for strikes, and faced 19 batters.

The Braves are 41-31 overall and 1-2 in the second-half SAL Southern Division standings. They won the first half, securing a postseason berth.

Deal is now 4-1 with an ERA of 3.22 – up from 1.80 — and has pitched 36 1/3 innings in 15 appearances. He has issued nine walks and struck out 48.

HUNTER HARVEY (Class AA Bowie, Md.)

Former Bandys High star Hunter Harvey is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury sustained while trying to maneuver away from a foul ball into the dugout on a day he was not pitching.

He was scratched from his 10th start (June 8) and remains listed as “active” on the Bowie roster.

Harvey is on the Baltimore Orioles’ 40-man roster, so if he were to go on the 60-day disabled list he would be considered on the major league roster during that time.

Harvey is 1-2 with 32 1/3 innings pitched. He’s allowed 36 hits, 20 (all earned), walked eight and struck out 30. His ERA is 5.57.

Bowie finished last in the first-half West Division of the Eastern League, 8 ½ games back of division winner Akron (Ohio).

The Baysox split a doubleheader on Saturday at Richmond (Va.), winning 9-4 in seven innings in the first game and falling 5-1 in seven innings in the second game.
