It's always nice to see what scouts are saying about our minor league players, but there just seems to be such a huge variance of opinion regarding Molina.

Kenny and the White Sox organization have really excelled in the pitching department, so I'm just hoping a lot of scounts and analysts are guessing low on the guy.

The tricky is about Nestor is that his stuff is fairly average, inferior compared to most other pitching prospects. If his command isn't great, then he will get rocked, like he did in his first start. The pessimistic side will tell you that his stuff isn't good enough to be more than a #4 starter, while the optimistic side will say that he mixes up his pitches and locations well and acts like a #2 starter.

Molina last night: 7 IP, 6 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K.

Mitchell slugged his first HR last night. Has 3 2B, 4 3B, 1 HR on the year. .298/.420/.544 (.964). 20 K in 16 games, but at least he's getting on base.

I'm hoping not to see him prematurely. We know how the organization likes to push prospects though. I'd like to see sufficient AA time, as well as time in Charlotte. Next year should be the earliest, lest he receives a September callup.

Indeed. The scout in question isn't that high on him, neither is KG. Sickels on the other hand really likes him. Just trying to post anything relevant in this thread. I'm not sure what I think of him just yet. I'm leaning more towards middle of the rotation starter than ace though.

With this organization one never knows who will be called up and when.

Maybe if they trade Floyd or something. Who goes into the rotation if/when someone gets hurt? I'm crossing my fingers, but I'm fairly sure it wouldn't surprise a single person on this website if Jake Peavy hits the DL at some point.

It will probably end up being Axelrod, but they could call up Molina for the doubleheader on May 7. The new CBA has a doubleheader rule for 26 on the active roster.

Humber is also scheduled to pitch May 7, but his wife is due on May 8, so you never know what may happen there.

Like I stated previously, he should be in Birmingham soon.
