    Wednesday, 6/8/11, Minor-League Updates

    Carolina's daily defeat came today by the score of 5-3. Costanzo homered and doubled. Shunick and Boxberger pitched well in relief.

    After being up two games to one...the team lost yet another series. Chapman's outing last night was costly. Boxberger is a very solid option out of the pen now and...Mike Costanzo pushed his BA from .271 to .289 during this series.

    Tennessee in town for a five gamer starting tomorrow.

    I read the box scores every day, but first time looking at the standings for Carolina. 19.5 games out this early in the year! I have to give credit to muddie and those few Carolina fans for still reporting this team to us.

    Hopefully once a few draft guys sign we can can bump Boxberger up to Louisville. Would love to see him in the closer role for the Bats.

    What's the story with Campbell in Carolina, is he the #1 3b there? Looks like he hasn't got many at bats yet.

    Campbell has played outfield, ss, and pinch hit some.

    Guess they are not viewing him very high after his Bakersfield performance. Tough to get into a rhythm the way he has been used.

    It's kind of discouraging how old the AA team is, lot's of guys in their mid-late 20's.

    Campbell is more or less a utility player at this point. I agree that Campbell isn't going to gain much traction in his current role. I believe the guy would be a contributor with regular time but apparently that isn't likely anytime soon. With Costanzo at third,Campbell is waiting in line.

    The makeup of this team is difficult to define. It's like a lot of parts but not a lot of continuity or chemistry.

    Cozart leads off the first with a base knock but gets picked off. Brandon Hynick on the bump. No score after half an inning.

    Josh Smith going for Dayton. Nice numbers but he seems a bit old for that league.
    61IP 45H 19ER 2HR 11BB 76K. 1.90 ERA. WHIP < 1.00.

    Likely so. Not sure about Frazier though.

    Cozart is 2 for 2.

    Bats trail 1-0 in the 3rd.

    It would be different it Campbell was a home-grown prospect but he's not.
