    He’s been a well below average AAA hitter (<90 wRC+) going back 2 years and over 600 pa. He walks a lot, can hit the ball hard, and has defensive value. But he doesn’t barrel the ball frequently enough or hit enough flies/line drives to generate the extra bases needed for him to be a viable major leaguer. I’m surprised he’s held onto his 40 man spot this long.

    Hamilton will make some MLB team a fine 4th/5th OF.

    Luis Garcia got knocked around in his first rehab start for Corpus as he allowed a pair of two-run homers in the 1st against San Antonio.

    On the bright side, James Hicks allowed two hits, walked one, and struck out seven over five scoreless out of the bullpen.

    As long as he didn’t grab his forearm after throwing a ball 45 feet I don’t care.

    I really like his blend of skills.

    Why is Whitley still in the minors?

    It’s odd that despite having average power and above average speed, he hits very few HR and doesn’t steal very many bases and isn’t considered very good in CF. But he walks a lot and doesn’t strike out too much

    Kelly Austin has done some fine work out of the bullpen for both Class A teams. Wonder if they'll turn him into a starter again...

    Anderson Brito allowed one hit and struck out eight over four scoreless this morning for the DSL Blue team. He's now 2-0 with an 0.51 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 6 appearances (3 starts, 17.2 IP total) in his first season of pro baseball.

    MLB.com has really improved their prospect coverage.

    Not sure why they have Rhett Kouba as the #12 prospect in the system though.

    Jackson Nezuh wasn't at his best, but he made it through five innings and also didn't walk anyone.

    5 IP, 6 H (2-R HR), 5 ER, 9 K

    Wilmy Sanchez was the first man out of the Fayetteville bullpen and he allowed a hit, walked one, and all six of his outs were strikeouts.
