    Haslup is a stud. He is going to be great for us.

  2. Laz says:

    Really hope Vidal Nuno goes up to AAA start of next year. Scouts aren’t high on him, but he keeps runs down.

    • Bo Knows says:

      Scouts aren’t high on him because he’s 25 years old, doesn’t throw really hard and he’s mostly beating up on younger competition.

  3. Ron says:

    Bautista love growing. 6-7 with control and velocity.

  4. Gilbert J. says:

    Is it just me or do the RBI’s in AAA add up to 12? Other than that a great day for AAA batters and an average day for everyone else. Seems like none of the higher prospects played today :(

  5. Smart Guy says:

    september call ups should include saxon butler and he should be penciled in as team captain and cleanup hitter

  6. Richard Leo says:

    Rafael De Paula today
    4IP OER 2H 4K 6GO/2FO

  7. Travelbug83 says:

    According to Mike Vander Woude Mustelier has “an infected right elbow”.

  8. Rehobie says:

    Really like the bats on the prospects. Trenton should have Flores, Slade and Austin next year. Williams and Gamel for Tampa. With aging team I expect at least 2 new outfielders in the future. My picks are Slade and Austin
