Dayan has always been able to hit and is walk rate is much higher (not that that's saying a whole lot). I would rather keep him in Charlotte to work on his defense.
As for Mitchell, I said before that we should treat this like year one for him, and I stand by it. Then again, it might be a good thing for him to struggle this early, just to see if he can work his way out of this.

Danks has been crushing the ball as of late, 6 home runs in the last 10 games. Lots of talent there, maybe he's finally getting it.

Until he's not striking out at a 36% clip I will remain wary.

Sleeper prospect Tyler Saladino is making his debut with Winston-Salem tonight. He broke his hand in spring training for those that forgot. Hit a 3-run HR in his first AB.

Decent arm; range of a lawn ornament. RT @JimMargalus: @Kevin_Goldstein Have you heard any reports on Viciedo's outfield defense so far?

Sounds about right.

KG mentions Jordan Danks and Tyler Saladino in today's minor league update.

It's interesting he notes that Saladino is a true SS. Other sources have noted he is more of a 2B.

Daryle Ward was released, but not that anyone cares or should really be surprised.

Didn't even know he was still in the organization... or in baseball at all.

The weird thing is JorDanks has almost stopped striking out entirely during his recent power surge. Compare his April and May numbers:

April .203 64AB 5R 13H 2D 1T 2HR 11RBI 13bb 25K
May .318. 44AB 12R 14H 4D 1T 6HR 15RBI 2bb 8K

That is like two different types of players. One is a passive player who walks and strikes out a lot and hits for very little power. The other never walks but puts the ball in play with authority. He is like a lefty Viciedo now. That is an extra base hit every four at bats. It is reflected in where he hits in their lineup now. They moved him from first to fifth. This is a small sample size, but JorDanks has changed his approach. I am anxious to see if it lasts.

Indeed. The power surge is noteworthy, but as you stated the sample size is still small with the strikeout reduction. I'm not excited just yet, but I will continue following his progress per usual.

I think Wes Whisler got released too. He's no longer on the Knights roster. Another filler bites the dust.

Mitchell struck out in his first AB tonight, and then was ejected after arguing with the umpire. Martinez replaced him, so it seems his injury wasn't anything serious.
