Another solid outing from Petricka:

5 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 7 SO

Hopefully he keeps this up when facing more age appropriate competition. He is kind of a project though which is why they are taking it slow with him.

I think he and Reed could end up being real nice picks; hopefully Royse pans out, too.

This could be a make or break year for Upchurch. I'd really like to see him make some progress.

I've pretty much given up on Upchurch. Hopefully he proves me wrong though.

After a somewhat slow start to the year Blanke finally had a nice night:

3-4, 2 2Bs and a 3B

Sox have traded minor league OF Stefan Gartrell to Atlanta (Class AAA Gwinnett) for cash considerations.

Not surprising. He really wasn't viewed that highly by the organization despite decent numbers.

Jose Martinez once a very promising prospect before all the injuries, is on a tear this year in W-S.

.432/.488/.595

Hopefully he can stay healthy.

Trayce Thompson tonight: 4-5, 2 HR, SO.

His 5th HR of the year. The power seems to be legitimate. If he can keep the strikeouts in check and/or takes a few more walks, he has a chance to be real good prospect. Still real far away though.

Another good start from Petricka.

6.0 IP 5 H 1 ER 2 BB 6 SO

I'd imagine a promotion to W-S isn't too far off.

Just so I don't embarass myself when talking about him... Is his name pronounced "Tracy" or "Trace?"

Almost positive it's Trace.

Thompson was mentioned in KG's minor league update today as well. He notes it's hard to dislike a toolsy CF with plus-plus power, but questions if he will be able to hit enough.

I really hope this kid can figure it out in the next two years. Could be a great corner OF with power if all works out.

I had a feeling he would be a fast riser this year. Especially being converted to relief. Hopefully they don't rush him too fast.

Both Martiney and Phegley are mentioned in KG's minor league update:

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/ar...rticleid=13681

Phegley is hilariously bad at catching. 12 errors and 23 passed balls in 91 games is ridiculous.
