The Baysox are in Akron for a game Wednesday night before going home for a series against Erie (Pa.) that begins on Thursday and continues through Sunday. If Harvey does not pitch in the Erie series, the next series is against Binghamton (N.Y.) on May 20-22.
(Class A Advanced Florida Fire Frogs)
Florida fell victim to the rain on Monday and Tuesday in a series at St. Lucie (Fla.), with the Monday game rained out and reset as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday, and both games on Tuesday got washed out.
The Fire Frogs are at St. Lucie for a twinbill on Wednesday, starting at 4 p.m., and they then are at home on Friday through Sunday against Jupiter (Fla.).
Deal’s next start should likely come in the series against Jupiter.
A left-hander who played at Bandys High and Presbyterian College, he pitched well again on Saturday but did not get a decision when the Fire Frogs fell 3-2 at Jupiter (Fla.) in 11 innings.
He threw 6 2/3 innings, allowing four hits, one run (earned) with four walks and seven strikeouts.
Deal threw strikes on 65 of his 106 pitches and faced 27 batters in 82-degree weather before a crowd of 1,216.
He’s 2-2 this season with an ERA of 1.30 after seven appearances, all starts. He’s thrown 41 2/3 innings, allowed eight runs (six earned), walked 11 and struck out 38, and opponents are hitting .188 against him.
Deal is 14-5 as a pro. After 48 games and 12 starts, he has walked 37 and struck out 147.
Deal is in his third pro season after signing with the Braves after a morning tryout at Bandys.
In Rome (Ga.) last season, Deal went 9-1 with an ERA of 2.17 in 27 games (five starts), earning two saves and pitching 78 2/3 innings. He walked 17 and struck out 82.
(Class AA Bowie, Md., Baysox)
Jarrett, a former star at Hickory High and at Charlotte, was in the lineup on Monday in a loss at Akron (Ohio) and also on Tuesday when the Baysox won 2-0 at Akron before 4,955.
On Monday, he batted sixth in the order and was the designated hitter when Akron won 7-3 in fellow Catawba County native Hunter Harvey’s seventh start of the season.
On Tuesday night, Jarrett started in leftfield and batted fifth, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts as Bowie won 2-0.
Jarrett is hitting .261 with one home run and eight RBIs this season; .189 with no home runs are RBIs in his last games.
He is in his third pro season, playing first at Aberdeen (Md.) and then in 129 games last season at Class A Delmarva (Md.), where he hit .277 with 26 doubles, six triples and 14 home runs.
