Aces on the move and the roadUtility player Tim Locastro was optioned back to Triple-A Reno after he was recalled by the Dbacks nearly two weeks ago. Juniel Querecuto has batted in the leadoff spot for the Aces in three-straight games, going 3-for-12 with two runs. He started the season on Reno’s injured list and is slotted in as the team’s second baseman. Nicknamed “JQ” during his tenure with the Aces last season, Querecuto played shortstop for Venezuela in the Caribbean World Series. The rangy infielder collected five hits and one stolen base with the Dbacks in spring training this season. Kevin Cron’s hot bat carried into the Aces’ eight-game road trip, hitting .571 with two home runs and four RBIs. He leads the team with five round-trippers, 18 RBIs and 14 runs on the year. Yasmany Tomas is right behind Cron with four homers, 12 RBIs and a .344 batting average. Travis Snider is tied for second in the PCL with a .444 batting average. Snider went 2-for-3 with two home runs in the Aces’ 10-1 victory over the Albuquerque Isotopes on April 16. On the mound, Dbacks’ top-pitching prospect Jon Duplantier had his second start with Reno on April 18. Duplantier tossed 2.2 innings with one unearned run, four walks and three strikeouts en route to a 6-3 victory over the Isotopes. Duplantier has a spotless 0.00 ERA in 5.2 innings this season. Tonight, right-hander Taylor Widener will get the nod against El Paso for the second game of the four-game series. Widener is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in two starts this year. He is expected to face southpaw Logan Allen. The Aces return to Greater Nevada Field on Wednesday, April 24 to begin a five-game home series against the Fresno Grizzlies, Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals. Notes: Right-handed pitcher Spencer Jones, who played for Reed High School in Sparks, has landed with the St. Paul Saints, an Independent team in Minnesota. After playing college baseball at Washington, Jones was drafted by Tampa Bay in the 10th round of the 2016 draft. He was 5-3 with a 2.76 ERA last season in Advanced A and Double-A. He was released by the Montgomery Biscuits on March 27. “I just need to go (to the Independent League) and put up some good numbers and I’ll get another opportunity,” he told Tahoe Onstage’s Simon Ruvalcaba. … Former Aces outfielder Socrates Brito went 1-for-3 with an RBI single for the Toronto Blue Jays against the Oakland Athletics on Friday.
