Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Sorry, our power's been out all day . . .
Wednesday, June 12: Steve Selsky, Bakersfield . . . 4-5, HR, 2 2B, 4 RBI, 3 R. Is Selsky making a mockery of the California League, or is the California League making a mockery of him? Suffice to say, he likes it there.
Also notable . . .
Brandon Dailey: 2-3, HR, BB, 2 RBI. Would still like to hear from anybody who knows how his switch to catcher is going. I'm guessing it's going OK, or they probably wouldn't have put him behind the plate in Dayton. If so, it seems a fairly promising development.
Jeff Gelalich: 2-3, BB.
Seth Mejias-Brean: 2-4, 2B, BB, RBI, R.
Yorman Rodriguez: 3-4, 2B, 3B, BB, 2 R. It's good to see how often he's lately making this list.
Juan Silverio: 0-3, BB, 3 RBI. Just because it's so weird.
Pabel Manzanero (DSL Rojos): 3-3.
Gregory Reinoso (Rojos): 3.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K. Nice work for a 17-year-old lefty whose ERA, after his first outing, was 162.00.
Derik Capitillo (DSL Reds): 3-6, 2 2B, HR, 6 RBI. Capitillo is an 18-year-old Venezuelan listed as a catcher, although yesterday he was the DH.
Apologetic edit: I see now that good ol' texasdave stepped into the void while I was getting my act together. Happily, we agreed on the choice.
