    Well done once again Seth. I don't know how you find the time to keep up on the minor leagues so well.

    DJ Baxendale? I thought he would have been a shoo-in to be in the top 4- in his 4 May starts in Ft Myers, 28 IP/0.00 ERA!/0.61 WHIP/7.39 K*9- and then promoted to AA.

    Thanks righty. I plead guilty to the charge of skimming and hit and run posting.

    These are my favorite things to read before I go to bed every night. I make it my nightly reading. Absolutely love these write ups Seth and helps me keep my inner baseball nerd under control

    I think you should have given it to Buxton, he was amazing this year.

    Just jokin...

    It's true, I freely admit to being an unabashed-Buxton-booster.

    Regarding Baxendale...I'm bullish on his potential, too...

    Let's just say I'm a big Baxendale future back-end SP backer.

    Bux and Bax are going to be boffo...book it.

    How soon could we see Tonkin pitching for the Twins?

    Well, thank you! And, I'm glad I can help in any way. HA!

    Starters and Hitters coming soon. Working those between draft articles this week.

    At this point, he could be an injury away. There aren't a lot of other 40 man roster options in the bullpen, certainly not with his kind of stuff... It'd be nice to get him a full month in Rochester and see how it goes. Looked good last night though!

    I have to stand up for my prospect (or after last two weeks, former prospect)Having been promoted to the Majors I sort of understand the omission but since you did not even have a #5 on the list I think Caleb Thielbar deserved a little time.
    In 6 games for Rochester he pitched 9.1 innings giving up 4 hits and 5 walks while striking out 11. He had several holds and did not allow a single inherited runner to score. All the while allowing only 1 unearned run for a 0.00 ERA. I think that makes him top 5 and arguably top 3 if he wasn't now a major leaguer.
