Reyes gets loss number 10 in a rain shortened game. Thing is, he actually pitched pretty well. He gave up a single and then the 2-run blast to David Wright in the first. The ball Wright hit was down and in and he was able to inside out it and hit over the right center wall. Sometimes good hitters hit good pitches. That was definitely the case on that pitch.
Yadi will be activated from the DL today. I know it was a hairline fracture, but wrist injuries are usually hard to come back from. I hope Stinnett accepts an assignment to Memphis because he would be nice if he were around in case we have another injury behind the plate.
Memphis fell to Round Rock, 3-2. Ricky was 0-4. Also, Ankiel has decided to skip the Triple A All-Star Game, even though he is the runaway top vote getter.
Allen Craig and the rehabbing Jon Jay each went deep for Palm Beach. Craig now has 16 on the year. Brandon Buckman was 0-5 but had 2 RBIs.
Springfield wins and Colby collects two hits. Mark Hamilton hit his first Double A HR, a 2 run blast. Chris Perez collected save number 20. Juan Richardson hit a Grand Slam.
Sometimes a demotion can get a player on track. Since returning to Springfield from Palm Beach, Zack Zuercher hasn’t allowed a run in 11 innings.
Word is Tyler Greene could be back as soon as next week.
Eddie Degerman was outstanding for the Swing. In 3.2 innings, Deggerman struckout 7. Tim Dorn collected his first hit, but struckout the other 3 times he was up.
Steven Hill is still hitting for Batavia. Hill is now hitting .429.
Here is a cool story about Nicole Hage, sister of the Cardinals’ 23rd round pick, Joey. Seems that she turned pro on the LPGA tour two days after Joey’s pro baseball debut.
Blake Dewitt went 0-4.
Baseball Analysts went through and ranked its best prospect in each division in Adavanced Class A. For the California Leaugue’s Southern Division it is Blake Dewitt. From their website: The Dodgers are traditionally great developers of talent, but Advanced A-Ball is a little barren this season, especially for this organization. Only 21, third baseman Blake DeWitt is repeating Advanced A-Ball and offers less average than Denker but more power potential at the plate, although he hasn’t really shown that this year with a line of .294/.334/.455. He was a first round draft pick in 2004 out of high school. I don’t guess the author realizes Blake has slugged close to .650 and is hitting over .400 in June.
