Carolina is out to a quick 1-0 lead after singles by Sappelt and Negron are followed by a walk of Sean Henry and an RBI groundout by Eric Eymann.

Sometimes I really wonder why managers fill out the lineups that they do. In Lynchburg today, Cody Puckett and his .522 SLG is in the leadoff spot, while Jose Gualdron and his sub .400 SLG is batting 3rd.

I always figure it along the lines of the fact that it isn't necessarily a minor league manager's job to win games.

Cisco walks and Hanigan hits into a DP.

2-0 Hens after 2

So Mes goes into play tonite with an .804 OPS so far at AA? Good news. If he can keep it above .800 the rest of the season, at that level, that really will be a great development. He remains the nicest surprise of the minor leagues for me this season.

Yeah, though I would like to see him get to .800 in a more conventional way. Of course his time in AA is extremely limited, so I am not placing much on what he has done so far. Unfortunately, he isn't in the line up tonight.

6-1 loss for the Bats

This is the 5th series in a row where the Bats could have won the series by winning the last game. And they've lost that last game every time.

Carroll has given up another dinger and the Mudcats trail 2-1.

Other than Mesoraco, Carroll might be the most pleasantly surprising player in the system this year. In his seven starts, he's twice given up 0 earned runs, twice given up 1, once (tonight) 2, once 3 and once 4. His overall ERA is 2.22. The strikeouts are nothing to write home about, but you can't quibble with his results. (Of course, by virtue of the Carolina offense and bullpen, he's only managed one victory.)

Shunick hung in there pretty well after his wretched first inning. He went six, which has to be an awfully good sign for a guy who hasn't pitched in a game in nearly two years.

SLEEPER ALERT: Does anyone know anything about the kid who started tonight for the AZL Reds, Jonathan Correa? In four innings, he's given up one unearned run, with six K's and no walks. He's 6-1, 168, and 19 years old. Last year in the DSL, he had an 0.68 ERA . . . but before you get too excited, he only pitched 13.1 innings. In his first year, 2008, also in the DSL, he had a 1.19 ERA. But alas, only 22.2 innings. Through the four innings tonight, his career ERA is now under 1.00.

Or how about North?

At any rate . . . dang! Chick, or North, went 8 innings: 6 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 10 K. He's now No. 1 on my prospect list . . . OK, top 40, anyway. Seriously, it's only 44 innings, admittedly, but over three seasons now, the dude has given up 4 earned runs. That's for his career.

Edit: Sorry, I see OBM beat me on the final line. So I'll add this. Career ERA: 0.82.

Man, they did it again. We're going to have to learn to hold off on those AZL boxes.

So forget the gushing over Correa. That balloons his career ERA to 0.88.

Anyone know what happened to Carter Morrison? I believe he was listed intially on the AZL Reds roster, now he's not on the AZ or Billings roster.

This was from an article back in August, 2008:



USATODAY.com reports Major League Baseball has suspended Cincinnati Reds P prospect Jonathan Correa for 50 games because he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.Read more: http://www.kffl.com/player/20556/MLB#ixzz0rqPDHnP9

Good find, td. Guess that accounts, in part, for his lack of innings. It does not account for his 168 pounds.

Interesting, though. The kid was only 17 at the time.
