After seeing Dayan in the two allstar games, I have to say that it definitely looks like he has lost some weight.

1-4.

He hit the ball hard a couple times.

Love the sound the ball makes off his bat.

Silverio was promoted to W-S. Ravelo to Kanny.

Walker will be promoted to Kanny at the conclusion of the Great Falls road trip.

Worth challenging him at this point. He is more polished than Mitchell was, but still needs to keep working.

Bristol puts up a 12 spot on Elizabethton in the 6th inning tonight. What makes it extra sweet is that it's against a Twins affiliate.

It's also time for Kevan Smith to be moved up, he's destroying the ball.

I'm with you on Smith. He's a college senior. Destroying rookie ball is pretty pointless for him.

Agreed, and I think the only thing that could be handcuffing the organization is that they want to give Gonzalez an extended look in Kanny. The catching situation in WS is pitiful too, but that's too big a jump for Smith, or Gonzalez for that matter.

I haven't given up on Blanke in W-S yet. But yes, there just doesn't seem to be much room for Smith at the moment.

As someone who is pretty ignorant about minor league ball, is the gulf in class between High-A and Low-A that great?

I personally think it is, but I don't have any quantitative information to back it up. Over my years of watching minor league ball, I've noticed that the jump from Rookie ball to A and the jump from A to Adv A seem to be the roughest on the kids. Again, I have nothing to back this up, it's just a gut feeling. Over the past couple of years, Dan Hudson, Sale and Addison Reed have cruised through multiple levels with not even a hiccup. (BTW Addison Reed is just insane this year, his numbers are ridiculous.)

Dayan's strikeout totals are nice. He still should be up here.
