Wow, lots of good pitching performances out of guys in the minors as of late.

Mark Gonzales ‏ @MDGonzales Close
Sox minor league pitcher Andre Rienzo suspended for 50 games for violation of drug policy. Was 3-0 with Carolina League leading 31 K's.

Rienzo tested positive for metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance, MLB said. Last pitched Monday for Winston-Salem

Dang.

Article I saw, he said he got it from a nutrition store in Brazil and thought it was fine, yada, yada, usual spin you hear from players. Hopefully it was an honest mistake but not good. Bell too was typical in his remarks saying he's a good kid, torn up by this mistake, that he thought about appealing it but decided in the end just to get it over with - good call, kid.

Baseball America had a comment about him saying he could be the MiL comeback player of the year if he keeps this up. Starting to get a little excited about him again.

It may have been an honest mistake, but players today are given so much information and support with the organization and baseball on what is allowed and what isn't. If there is any doubt send it to the team trainer to find out BEFORE you take it!

Because I said 'hopefully it was an honest mistake' doesn't mean I believe it was one. Just FYI. Also, seems like he was in Brazil when it happened, so sending the trainer probably wasn't an option.

Jared Mitchell was written about in today's Baseball America Hot Sheet. It's in the "In the Team Photo" section.

http://www.baseballamerica.com/today...2/2613317.html

Probably more importantly then the fact he's hitting is his strikeouts. Jared is K-ing 23.5% of the time currently, all while walking 18.8% of the time. This is a noteworthy improvement. If he can keep the strikeouts hovering around 20ish percent we might have something here. Encouraging.

Would it be that hard to take a picture of the ingredients and send it to your trainer? There are too many resources out there now to claim ignorance anymore.

Rangel Ravelo ends the month 3-4 and is hitting .353. His strikeouts are still a concern though.

Along with a line of .329/.462/.541, Jared Mitchell has 21 strikeouts in 106 PAs. That's good for a 19.8% K rate. This is perfectly acceptable considering his power production and almost 1:1 K:BB ratio. If he keeps this up we will have a great prospect on our hands.

Wasn't his K rate closer to 23% earlier in the season? Yeah, this is an encouraging sign. I hope that he can continue to produce.

I just wonder who he's going to replace in the OF when/if he comes up to the Show.
