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.
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.
