Minors News

Matt explores the Eulogio De La Cruz promotion. I hadn’t thought much about it, but maybe they are giving him a whirl as a reliever at the higher level to see if he can be added to the bullpen. His starter numbers are better than as a reliever, but his stuff can be impressive regardless.

TigsTown notes that Vincent Blue was released and Vance Wilson is about to start rehabbing at Lakeland.

  1. Bilfer, is it possible to put the minor league records with the daily squibs?

  2. Has anyone here seen Trahern pitch? Is he a real prospect? Most guys with a K rate that low aren’t effective MLB talents…except for pitchers with extreme groundball tendencies like Carmona and Wang. Trahern is getting as many ground balls as either of those two and his K rate is similar to Wang’s. (~5 K/9)

  4. Trahern seems to be benefitting from having a better defense behind him in AA.

  5. Trahern’s been dominating. of his 246 batters faced this year in Erie, he either struck them out or enduced a ground ball 171 times. That’s 69.5% of the time.
