There was some serious O'Rear kicking in Arizona: nine runs in 1.1 IP. The AZL Reds lost 9-6 after considerably better luck for Cesar Caceras and Carlos Ramos.

It's been a little frustrating that they seem to sit Brandon Dailey so often and hit him ninth other times, like today. But I suspect it's because they want to give the older guys, the new college draftees, a thorough look as quickly as possible. Bryson Smith led off today and tripled. Steve Selsky, hitting cleanup, doubled and homered.

Miguel Rojas was 2-4 with a double. He must be about ready to return to Carolina--unless, with Cozart gone, they elect to move him all the way up to Louisville and leave Gregorius as the AA shortstop.

Home runs by Waldrop and Wright have Billings up 3-0 in the seventh. Mugarian has 10 K. Kurt Muller is 3-4.

Edit: They just took away an inning and a K from Mugarian. He fanned 9 in 6 IP (2 H, 2 BB). Kemp in.

He's taking it well and it is the case of getting new and older guys a look He's only nineteen lots of time and the coaches have a good feel for what he can do.
