Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Monday, May 6: Carlos Gonzalez, Bakersfield. After eight relief appearances, the right-hander made his first start of the season; and he made it a good one, although his pitch count was obviously monitored . . . 3.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K.
Also . . .
Lately, these three guys have made bids for MiLPOD on a regular basis (albeit, in generally weak fields, given the performance of the farms in general):
Jesse Winker . . . 2-5, HR
Zach Vincej . . . 3-4
Felix Perez . . . 2-4, 2B
