    This is fine. I still expect Loperfido to get called up on or before the 20th so all I get to see is Cabbage and Vote for Pedro.

    This is the ten year anniversary of springer getting called up.
    Maybe forest can channel some of that energy

    He still throws 99. He’s not dead.

    James Hicks with 5 shutout innings for Fayetteville; he allowed a hit, walked two, and struck out eight.

    Kenni Gomez hit his first HR. 939 ops in A ball as an 18 year old thru 41 pa. He keeps that up he will be a very hyped prospect.

    Raimy Rodriguez finished off a 1-0 Fayetteville win: 4 IP, 3 H, BB, 6 K

    Kenni Gomez's homer was the one run.

    • 53 of the 67 pitchers who have appeared in the minors for Houston this season have a k/9 >9 so far.

    The early returns on the 2023 draft are excellent:
    Matthews 136 wRC+
    Tredwell 11 k/9
    Fisher 82 wRC+
    Bloss 10 k/9
    Jaworsky 82 wRC+ (teenager in full season ball)
    Pecko 17 k/9
    Johnson 74 wRC+
    Guillemette 139 wRC+
    Williams 134 wRC+
    Deming 141 wRC+
    Ochoa 97 wRC+
    Dixon. EST
    Huezo EST
    Nezuh 10 k/9
    Langford 15 k/9
    Hicks 13 k/9
    True 12 k/9
    Bush 29 wRC+
    Ferreras 155 wRC+

    I would say Fisher, Johnson, and Bush are the only disappointments, and I count 13 guys who are performing excellent so far. We won’t know anything about the pitchers until they get to AA but they are looking like they’ll at least make it that far.

    Waner Luciano hit his first home run of the season for Fayetteville. That was probably the only good thing going for them in their 16-7 loss to Fredericksburg.

    Luis Encarnacion (grand slam) and Cam Fisher (2-run) both hit their first home runs of the year for Ashevile.

    AJ Blubaugh might be the real deal. He’s probably about 30 more dominant AAA innings away from getting called up. 6ip, 2h, 1er, 0bb, 7k on only 73p tonight.

    Fisher ended up hitting 3 HR. Went from struggling to kicking ass in one game.

    Miguel Ullola had a solid night on the mound for Corpus as he allowed two runs on two hits, walked three, and struck out eight.

    Both hits were doubles; the two runs he allowed came in the 1st inning.

    yeah, he’s been the most impressive pitcher in the minors thus far this season. Who unearthed this kid from Milwaukee?
