    Ha this is true. We should sign Carlos to a 1 year deal and see if we can package him in for Stanton... should work.

    His appendix was apparently the source of his talent.

    Conrad Gregor is loving the friendly confines of Lancaster. 5-5 today, with a HR. Now sporting a .448/.515/.724 slash in his 8 games since promotion. The more I see, the more I like him.

    Corlos Correa walked 3 more times, he is on a full blown tear right now, really hope they promote him within the month, he's ready.

    Carlos has 17 steals with only 4 CS fyi... This compares well to his 10SB/10CS stats of yesteryear. It was stated above this post and I ranted yesterday, but let's get CC to CC.

    The California League announced it's 2014 All-Star team roster on Wednesday morning and five JetHawks were named to the team. The five selections are the most in the league.

    Tony Kemp and Teoscar Hernandez will be starters on the All-Star team while Carlos Correa, Josh Hader and Roberto Peña were all selected as reserves.

    Phillips, Moon, Brunnemann named All-Stars

    River Bandits field staff will lead Western Division All-Stars in West Michigan June 17

    [​IMG]

    Quad Cities River Bandits outfielder Brett Phillips has selected to start the 2014 Midwest League All-Star Game, and infielder Chan-Jong Moon and right-hander Tyler Brunnemann were named reserves for the Western Division in the June 17 game hosted by the West Michigan Whitecaps in Comstock Park, Mich. The entire River Bandits field staff will lead the Western Division team, which was announced Wednesday by the Midwest League.

    Phillips, 20, was the youngest position player selected for the Western Division roster. A sixth-round pick by the Houston Astros in the 2012 First-Year Players Draft out of Seminole (Fla.) High School, Phillips is third in the Astros organization and 10th in the Midwest League with a .308 batting average. He is tied for second in the league with seven triples and leads the River Bandits in runs (37), hits (60), and total bases (93). Since April 18, he has hit his first three career home runs. Phillips has 17 multi-hit games and eight multi-RBI games, including a career-high four on May 23 against Cedar Rapids. Phillips was ranked as the Astros' No. 30 prospect before the season by Baseball America, has put together a .372 on-base percentage (OBP) and .477 slugging percentage for a .849 on-base-plus-slugging (OPS).

    Moon, 23, was signed by the Houston Astros on Aug. 9, 2009, becoming the second player from the Pacific Rim to ever sign with the club. He was selected to the New York-Penn League All-Star Game in 2013. In a team-high 54 games this season, the Seoul, South Korea, native is 10th in the Astros minor league system with a .297 batting average. He is tied for second in the Midwest League with seven triples and tied for third with 23 stolen bases. Moon also has six doubles, a home run and 19 RBIs. His 24 walks are the second-highest of any current Bandit, helping him to a .376 OBP. He is also slugging .422 for a .798 OPS.

    Brunnemann, 22, became just the second player ever drafted from Hardin-Simmons University (Texas) when he was taken by Houston in the 40th round of the June 2013 draft. The Garden Ridge, Texas, native is 0-1 with a 1.73 ERA, the best of anyone that has pitched at least 25 innings for Quad Cities. He had a team-best 17 1/3-inning scoreless streak from April 3 to May 9. In 26 innings over 14 relief appearances, Brunnemann has allowed just 7.27 baserunners per nine innings, good for second among Midwest League relievers. He has held opponents to a .163 batting average, the fifth-lowest of any relief pitcher in the Midwest League.

    Phillips is an interesting prospect. He has a little bit more pop than your typical lead off type which is nice to see.

    As a casual fan, I'm hoping to see Folty & Santana get called up sometime this year. It'd be interesting to see what our top prospects list looks like after that. Would expect Correa & Kemp to get to CC at some point too. It's nice to see some of this patience pay off & finally have a strong farm system.

    My guess

    1. Correa
    2. Aiken
    3. Appel
    4. Stassi
    5. Ruiz
    6. DeShields Jr
    7. Velasquez
    8. McCullers
    9. Kemp
    10. Wojo/Thurman

    Still probably the best top 10 farm system in baseball.

    Kemp(4) and Teoscar(11) both went deep. Correa with his 18th stolen base
