    So McHugh should be in the rotation now, which means Musgrove is moved out with Keuchel on the horizon.

    How much you wanna bet that McCullers has some sort of "discomfort" here pretty soon.

    Stop it.

    Kuechel
    McCullers
    Fiers
    Morton
    McHugh

    Moving Peacock back to Lone relief is going to be huge. I really hope we don't give up the farm for another starter. Give me a bullpen arm and let's roll.

    If Peacock is the Lone Relief, who's Tonto?

    Really would love to get a report on his velocity.

    That's going to tell us how severe that injury was.

    Good for him.

    At 21 in the GCL, he's just another guy, prospect-wise. At least he can say he once hit for the cycle

    Started career last year at age 21. Did not expect him to have that kind of heat.

    Ryan Hartman (9th rd, '16) is starting to become somewhat interesting. LHP who has succeeded at every stop thus far in his career with decent strikeout numbers.

    Very small sample, but 20 yr old OF Bryan De la Cruz has held his own in AA so far. Walked and k'ed 11%, 157 wRC+.

    D.J. Fisher just hit a solo shot for Fresno, his 20th of the year.

    So, uh... Fresno has 17 runs through 6 innings.

    The 8 and 9 hitters (Kemmer and Brignac) have 5 hits, 11 RBI, and 3 home runs (2 for brignac). Kemmer is a non-prospect who has raked his way to AAA and leads a team full of guys with major league experience (literally the rest of our lineup) in ops.

    Fisher added a double. He was just pinch hit for in the 7th (probably mercy rule, not Hug watch?).

    Older Tucker added #15, Kemp hit #6. Moran is 2-4 with a walk and 3 runs.

    Armenteros allowed 5 over 5 innings, but should get the win.

    What to do with Kemmer? Obviously no room for him here and I know he's a non prospect but man he's killin it. Could have some minor trade value right? not a terrible to guy keep around either though.
