Yep, and Keon Barnum is back again. It's been nothing but bad luck for Keon since he came into the system, I really hope he can stay healthy this time around.

It's a shame too because this guy's stuff is out of this world filthy. When you watch him you wonder how does this guy struggle so much?

We keep pushing him as a starter, but you're right rdiv, he's destined for the bullpen. On the bright side, fwiw, his stuff profiles as a top notch closer.

Indeed, I hope the relief role settles in with him.

Actually that was his second game, he was 0- 4 in his debut with an error. He committed 2 more errors tonight, hopefully that's just jitters.

I haven't seen that, but I suppose that could be a possibility.

Good for Andy. I always felt that he was underrated as a prospect, since none of his tools really stand out. He just knows how to hit well to both sides of the field. He might have a shot at the big leagues next year.
Edit: 1-4 with that 1 being a double.

Trayce Thompson went 3/6 with 3 doubles last night. OPS is now over .800 after a horrible April where he hit .187, and here's his June batting line:

.329/.380/.537/.917 (82 ABs)

Wow, if so that would be over half of our international signing budget ($2.1 mil).
