    Sano now has 3 HR on the young season. Hopefully his defense is better and his K's are lower and he forces the team to promote him. It is very rare the team lets a non collegiate player spend less than one full season in Beloit. They made Mauer spend an entire year there.

    By the way, Sano hasn't made an error yet this season. He has driven 10 runs already.

    Any news on Rosario's defensive transition?

    He's made a couple of errors thusfar, but that isn't unexpected. Hopefully he'll get his issues worked out and move up with Sano.

    Rochester won 2-1 with Scott Diamond picking up the win. Dozier went 2/2.
    New Britain lost 8-4. Aaron Hicks went 1/3 with a double.
    Ft. Myers won 6-5 with Lance Ray homering.
    Beloit won 3-2. Miguel Sano and Eddie Rosario were 0/6, but Madison Boer picked up the win going 5 innings, allowing a run on 3 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 9. Rosario played CF again. I wonder if this is a sign?

    I think I am more excited for the development of these guys than I am the big club.

    Dang, I hope not. There is probably less desperation in the organization about middle infield depth with the emergence of Dozier and the drafting of Michael but I still like the idea of a guy like Rosario getting a shot at 2B.

    Great news on Boer though, most of the younger arms are still only getting a couple innings thus far. Going 5 and getting 60% of his outs on strikeouts gets me excited.

    He was back at 2B today. I'm guessing it was just to keep his bat in the lineup and let someone else play 2nd.

    Guerra picked up a save for New Britain. Marquis won the game, striking out 7 in 8 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits. Hicks was 2/3 with another homer.

    That's why people have to assume young pitchers w/ a decent K/9 rate are going to drop significantly in the majors. Marquis doesn't fan batters at the highest level. If the kids don't have a 10K/9 in the upper levels of the minors, they're probably not going to be a big time strikeout pitcher in the majors.

    Awesome news on Hicks. Keep it up. Let's get a promotion by the All-Star break and give the front office something to talk about.

    Yesterday, Chris Colabello hit his first homer (he also doubled and drove in 4 runs) for the Rock Cats in their 6-1 win. Hicks was 1/3 with a double.
    Sano and Rosario both made errors in Clinton (that field is pretty rough) with Sano going 1/4 and Rosario going 0/5. Tim Shibuya pitched 5 good innings, allowing 2 unearned runs on 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4.
