Sorry about the lack of a minor league report yesterday. As part of a Mother’s Day gift, I flew down to Denver to see my family. I got to see this yesterday on nieces day at the zoo …


My dad named him Bartolo. My dad can be quite mean. Now you know where I get it from.

On a programming note, East coast native Todd Dybas will be with the team in New York. He will handle the daily stuff with the team. I will still post the minor league stuff.

Let’s get to it …

The Rainiers difficult road trip continued . Down 5-3 in the ninth, they had bases loaded with no outs and didn’t get a single run across as Eric Thames, Alex Liddi and Carlos Peguero all struck out to end the game. James Paxton struck out 10 batters, but lasted just 5 2/3 innings.

Mike Curto has his daily blog post.  

Down in Jackson, the Generals gave up four runs in the ninth – all on Tyler Burgoon – to lose.  Chance Ruffin pitched into the seventh inning and threw 112 pitches as his conversion from starter to reliever continues.

Taijuan Walker starts today for Jackson. You can listen here.   Rick Randall of Seattle Clubhouse has this blog post on Walker for Lookout Landing.

Class A High Desert shut out San Jose, using four pitchers.

Lefty Tyler Pike had another solid start for Clinton as the LumberKings shut out Kane County.

  1. Div, your Dad’s got a good sense of humor.

    Paxton is the guy who I think has the ability/opportunity to make a huge impact. Command continues to be an issue, but the frame, velo, and delivery remind me of a young Pettite. If he can make his mechanics a little more repeatable (tough to do for someone so tall), he could be special. Your thoughts?

    You better not let Bartolo hear you talking smack. He could run down your whole family and chomp you in half like some tooth picks.

    I’m pretty sure the last time Bartolo ran was during the Clinton Administration.

    I meant the Hippo.
