After tonight, you will probably start to hear a lot more about this.

He will be called up eventually. I see no reason to rush him really. Might as well see if this hitting continues. He could be a nice surprise, but he's not a guy that will save the White Sox this season.

Well, it is interesting. Phegley was a monster in college but has never hit like this as a pro. So is this a hot streak? Or has the light turned on? I suppose we will see at the AAA level. But if this is for real then you want to bring him up and get like 200 at bats just so you don't go into the offseason not knowing.

Thompson and Walker apparently three more strike outs each last night.

Thompson, yes; Walker, no. You might be thinking of Jared Mitchell who struck out three times last night.

Somebody spiked the Gatorade with HGH for White Sox minor league hitters on May 28th.

Charlotte pounds Toledo 12- 3

W/S destroys Frederick 17- 5

Kanny massacres Lexington 13- 1

I watched some Charlotte and some Birmingham. Jordanks looks really good at the plate. Could see regular playing time if Sox fall out of it. Phegley continues to hit the ball HARD. And he rarely strikes out, which would be a welcome change near the bottom of the order. Morel swinging it good lately too. My dream, of course, is to never see Keppinger again ever, so I am biased.

Molina might have hurt himself again. Shocker. Semien looks good, just doesn't have a carrying tool. Thompson only position guy there I believe in. Their bullpen is very very good.

To me, the headline of the whole night, though, is Kyle Hansen. Guy is 6'8" with a good arm. If the Sox can fix his mechanics, he is a 6th round steal. Two consecutive great starts now. Last 12 innings 0 runs, 6 hits, 0 bb, 13k.

Gonzo confirms in a story this morning that Molina was pulled after three innings last night because of yet another injury.

I thought the big league club had it bad with guys getting hurt...that's nothing compared to what's going on down there.

I really wish this kid would get called up so I could watch him play. Sounds like one of the most exciting players we've had in a long time.

I realize he could be another Jerry Owens, Danny Richar, or host of others but man could he really play any worse than De Aza? Give us some excitement White Sox.

Johnson is a second baseman, and a pretty poor one at that. De Aza is also light years beyond Micah in terms of hitting. Micah will need to prove himself for at least another year and a half before anyone takes him seriously.

Will he get moved up soon, at least to Winston-Salem?
