Some bad news- Kyle Bronovich has essentially the same injury as Means and will be out awhile. Vavra left the game tonight after running out a single. Hopefully not serious.


Shout out to Adam Hall who had 2 hits and a BB tonight. .342 to start his season in Bowie. A terror on the bases.

Vavra has a strained hamstring.

That sounds like it may take awhile. Vavra is intriguing to me but the injuries may be cutting into how long the Os ultimately are able to look at him in the show.

Damn. Was looking forward to seeing if that OBP could translate to the majors for Vavra.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

All I know is upper body discomfort which could be multiple things.

Gunner hit his first bomb

 

Prieto hit 2 tonight. 5 on the year. Thats surprising to me.

Apparently Prieto added 15 pounds of muscle since he played in Cuba, nice to see.

 

Henderson's homerun was hit 112 mph.

Prieto and Gunner went deep again today. Norby went deep twice today. All 4 affiliates lose though as the pitching was suspect

108 mph off the bat this time for Gunnar and followed 11 consecutive strikeouts to start the game for top pitching prospect Daniel Espino. Very impressive. 

 

Prieto should be in AA soon as Westburg moves up. Norby might not be too far behind.

Espino is fangraph's #10 and has 30 Ks of 50 batters faced this season, wow. Good to see Gunnar homer off a guy like that.

Also, the one concerning thing about him last year for me was he struck out so much, almost 31%. Sure it's early, but 18.6% this year while continuing to hit for power is nice to see.

I’m going to an Aberdeen game soon. Anyone know where they list probable pitchers?

I know that a decade or more ago, that I really cared about how often a guy struck out in the minors.  I've never cared about how often guys strike out in the majors, outs are outs, so if you can produce enough overall I didn't careif you had a 25% K-rate or 15%.  But I always thought that guys that were striking out 20%+ of the time in the minors, against weaker pitchers, would struggle more as they advanced against better competition and the overall level of production would not be abelto be maintained as the K-rates climbed.

 

But I've no idea if that still holds water.  MLB Ks have skyrocketed over the past 5 years or so.  I've got no feel for if a high K-rate is still a major red flag for prospects or not.

Cowser still striking out at an insane rate. Avg down to .214. Its early but I dont want to hear anyone saying there is no reason for concern.

That’s exactly how I feel, but I also have no idea if it really matters or not.

Re: Cowser, I’m less concerned because Bob said they changed his swing. That could easily take a month to get used to.

It would be on the Ironbirds website and schedule if its listed early. Often its not listed til the night before or sometimes day of. A lot of times you need to backtrack through the previous 5 or 6 games and take a good educated guess.
