Triple-A: Salt Lake Bees
Kid Cowart just keeps on doin' it. I love this.
Double-A: Arkansas Travelers
Chris Ellis started the game. He didn't make the cut for the Standout Stat line. Uh oh.
Class A Advanced: Inland Empire 66ers
The only 66er who didn't give up a run last night. And a 0.00 ERA? Wow, who is this guy? This could be an interesting reliever we have blossoming in the lower minors. ::Checks Palmer's MiLB page:: Oh. He's a center-fielder. And he was brought in after the three pitchers before him were shelled. Why he was the first guy to be called after only three pitchers were used is beyond me, but hey, he got the job done!
Class A: Burlington Bees
Yup, DH. Our catch-and-throw catcher was slotted in at designated hitter in his first game after being promoted to Burlington. And he did not disappoint. Two singles and a walk. Very nice.
Rookie: Orem Owlz
I love this kid. There, I said it. Normally, he plays the hot corner, but he's versatile, which makes me like him even more. And he bats from the left side. Yes, I know, I know, he's 23, he should be doing this well. But I'm holding out hope no matter what!
Speaking of kids to keep an eye on, Barria seems to be one. He's young (19), he's Panamanian and he's consistent. I like what I'm seeing so far.
Rookie: AZL Angels
And another kid I'm rooting for! Jahmai has the potential to be something special. Good guy, great tools...I like it.
Rookie: DSL Angels
Nice night for Denim!
