Minor League Player of the Day: To a chorus of boos I'm going with Jonathan Sanchez with the details below.
Triple-A: Jonathan Sanchez pitched his best game of 2013, hurling six innings of three hit ball, along with 10 strikeouts, and best of all, only two walks. Alex Castellanos hit another home run giving him four in his last ten games. Dee Gordon picked up three hits, but more importantly was playing second base for the Isotopes, and has now garnered 11 games at 2nd base in 2013. Those are the only games Dee Gordon has ever played second base. Before anyone gets excited let me crush those expectations right now with the reminder that Dee has zero extra base hits in his last ten games. Future ex-Dodger Javy Guerra picked up his sixth save.
Double-A: The Lookouts were shut out once again, this time 8 - 0. Evidently Brandon took their offense with him to Europe. I got nothing for you. No one wants to keep hearing about Joc Pederson going ofer again. But he did. Just in case anyone has noticed., they have lost the last two games by a combined score of 15 - 0. I'm hoping more Cubans defect because this ain't good.
High Class-A: O'Koyea Dickson and Chris Jacobs both hit three run home runs leading the Quakes offensive attack. The score was 7- 7 at press time. If your good at figuring things out you probably realize that the pitching was not very good. Luckily it didn't involve anyone you should care about. Unless your family of Jon Michael Redding. In that case, give him the emotional support he is going to need when he realizes very soon, his dream of being a major league pitcher is probably not going to happen.
Low Class-A: Loons were off
Rookie (Ogden): Plethora of Raptors hit home runs Brandon Twinkwon (3), Kyle Farmer (3), Jesus Valdez (4), and Jacob Scavuzzo (8). 19 year old Scavuzzo is on a purty good run with 10 XBH in his last 10 games including three home runs. Scott Barlow started but the man who was considered a sleeper prospect last year is still sleeping.
Rookie (Arizona): I'm trying to find somebody on the Arizona team that looks interesting and I'm coming up empty. The starting lineup had six of nine players with a batting average below .240. Three of them are below .200. I'm not sure how Brandon makes these lunks sound so interesting. I don't see one prospect here. I guess Cody Bellinger might be one. He of the interesting BA below .200 and OB above .300. On the pitching side Jose De Leon pitched a solid six innings. But he turns 21 in a few days and with his peripherals there is no way to sugar coat that this guy is a prospect.
