    Matt Maloney went bust but Burton has pitched well for the Twins.

    Just checked Burtons game logs and in his 1st 3 games: 1 2/3rd Innings, 3 Hits, 3 Runs, 0 BB, 1 K

    Since then: 11 1/3rd Innings, 0 Hits, 0 Runs, 2 BB, 12 K

    Now would be a great time to trade for Torreyes.

    I still love the kid.

    Yonder's heated up, batting .300 now and added an RBI single in today's game. Still no power to speak of though.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    He has 12 doubles. I wouldn't call that "no power to speak of"...

    Yonder's in san diego. That p.lace is brutal and saps the power. For a rookie in that park...he's doing very well.

    Yonder is 1 multi-double game away from tying the club record set by Gwynn and A Gonzalez... Not shabby...

    Torreyes average is down to .158 even though he has only 8 k's in 120 ab's. His BABIP must be at record low levels. OPS of .441.

    It is currently sitting at .170 on the season.

    Brad Boxberger has been average-at-best at Triple-A Tuscon this season: 14 IP, 13 H, 11 BB, 17 K, 4.50 ERA, 0-2, 3 saves.

    His teammate, Yasmani Grandal, is doing well though: .317 (.942 OPS), 3 HR, 17 RBIs in 82 ABs.

    You have to think it's not all luck at his level.... I would think he must not be hitting the ball with a great deal of authority.

    His line drive rate is down significantly this season. But even still, his BABIP is .170. He is not super fast, but he is a slightly above average runner. The Florida State League does funny things to guys. A whole lot of superstars have gone through that league and not hit much.

    Grandal was the only part of the deal I hated. I didn't mind part with Alonso and I like Boxberger, but he's a much more replaceable part. I liked Grandal quite a bit over Mesoraco based on his pitch recognition skills.
