Might depend on your definition, but he played in the AFL.

I guess my hope on that question is that his injury last season directly or indirectly led to his poor start this season. Whether that has any truth or not, I have no idea.

I'm guessing it was more the rust factor, which in my opinion, is an indirect result of his injury (as opposed to his ankle negatively impacting his game).

Thanks for all of this, guys.

Meanwhile, since I've taken an interest in Mr. Kuhn, his OPS has plummetted from .927 to .888. In any case, if he continues to produce at a good level, he needs to be playing in Charlotte instead of the 30-something Gookie Dawkins. [Only 4 errors in 49 games so far, BTW!]

I'd heard that Remenowsky has a high pitching and baseball IQ, so I'll continue to watch him with interest. That said, he's still a former NDFA, so perhaps he lacks a baseline level of ability to become anything of note.

I don't know what to make of Marrero, Infante, and Omogrosso.


Insofar as Mitchell goes, I'm content to see more improvement on his part. I don't see the need to promote him until he learns everything he needs to learn at A+, regardless of his draft status or age. [This is due to him being considered "raw" when he was drafted.]

I'd rather have him as complete a player as he can be in 2013 in Chicago than to have him become another incomplete player and pushed to Chicago in 2012.

Kuhn is pretty fringy. Reports of his defense aren't very good. Marrero is hard to get a read on as the organization doesn't really seem to regard him that highly. Rem doesn't have velocity but is the quintessential "knows how to pitch" guy and the results have been great throughout his progression.

Infante is legitimate and the best prospect of the players you mentioned. If he harnesses his control and becomes more consistent with the breaking pitch he could be an impact relief arm.

Ultimately, none of these guys are that great but there isn't much else to get excited about.

Might depend on your definition of "played."

Batted .163 with 27 strikeouts in 24 games.

Well, the point was that he played a substantial amount of games and was apparently healthy enough to take the field.

Phegley with a career night tonight, basically straps the Barons on his back and caries them.

Final Line: 4/4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 7 RBI

Phegley's only 23, so he's still got plenty of time. His defense still has to improve though. Unfortunately for him, for catchers, good defense is more important than good hitting.

Indeed. I'm not optimistic though. He's an awful catcher.

C Michael Blanke promoted to W-S. Mired in a 2-34 slump right now, but has been fairly productive otherwise. He's an interesting one to keep an eye on.

Yea the slump has been prolonged and somewhat disappointing, but he had a pretty decent start to the year. Would like to see some more walks and a bit more power though. How he performs in W-S should be pretty telling as he was a bit old to be playing in Low-A.

I hope Miguel Gonzalez gets the call from extended to Kanny.

Jeez, I forgot all about Gonzalez. He has shown some flashes. You're right, hopefully he fills that spot.

Excellent.

On a different note: Marrero had himself a night: 4-4, 2 HR, 5 R, 3 RBI, 1 BB (.337/.398/.601/.999)
