    6/14: Minor League Minute
    AA Montgomery Biscuits (33-35)

    Morlan Activated-Biscuits RHP Eduardo Morlan has been activated off of the Disabled List; he was expected to arrive in Montgomery last night and could see game action as soon as today in Mobile. Morlan, placed on the DL April 25th with a sore right (pitching) shoulder, was rehabbing at the Naimoli complex in St. Petersburg. Acquired in the off-season as part of the Delmon Young trade from the Minnesota Twins, Morlan had struggled in six appearances for the Biscuits prior to going on the shelf, giving up six earned runs in 6.2 innings of work. Regarded as the organization's finest relief pitching prospect, Morlan will presumptively return to the closer's role that he had occupied prior to the injury.

    BISCUITS 1, Mobile 0 (13)-The Biscuits and visiting BayBears exchanged zeros for 12 innings at Riverwalk Stadium on Friday night before two errors doomed Mobile in the bottom of the 13th. CF Rashad Eldridge came in to score when Mobile C John Hester dropped the incoming throw from 3B Cesar Nicolas that, executed properly, would have started a 5-2-3 double play to get Mobile out of the inning. Instead, 3B Chris Nowak reached base safely on the play, and his league-leading double play count stood pat at 15. RHP Wade Davis pitched seven shutout innings for the Biscuits to rebound from his poor start last Saturday.

    AAA Durham Bulls (35-33)

    Rochester 1, BULLS 0-The Red Wings scored once in the bottom of the sixth, and the Durham lineup could manage just two hits as they went down in defeat, 1-0. The game was delayed almost two hours due to rain in the fifth inning, and both starters saw their outings truncated as a result. The Bulls won just one of the four games they played in Rochester this week, and look to correct their losing road trip with a four game series in Buffalo against the Bisons starting tonight.

    A+ Vero Beach Devil Rays (32-34)

    FSL All-Star Game Today-The All-Star Break continues today for the Florida State League, although for the league-high six Vero Beach players participating in the All-Star Game, today doesn't represent a "break". The FSL All-Star Game is indeed set to take place at 7:15pm (or 7:30pm, depending on who you believe) this evening in Brevard County. Seven V-Rays players were selected as All-Stars, but RHP Ryan Reid has moved on to better places and will thus not play today. Here are the six set to be in Viera for tonight's game:

    * RHP Jeremy Hellickson
    * RHP Heath Rollins
    * LHP Ryan Morse
    * 3B Cesar Suarez
    * OF Garrett Groce
    * DH J.T. Hall

    Hellickson was originally a candidate to start today's game, but he developed a blister on his pitching hand in his last start on June 5th, and thus will not play at all. Hall will be the lone Devil Ray to participate in the Home Run Derby prior to the game.

    The All-Star Break isn't just about celebrating the accomplishments of the league's best, however, it is also a couple of off-days for each team to evaluate their performance over the first half. An interesting piece in today's Vero Beach Press Journal offers some insight into what that evaluation will be like for the Devil Rays. Manager Jim Morrison says the team has not played to expectations this year, and that the culprit is a lineup that hasn't adjusted to the higher competition level of the FSL. For the second straight year, Vero Beach finds itself with a very strong collection of pitchers...and a starting lineup that just can't find a way to cross the plate. Morrison said that he expects the talent level of the team to translate into better second half results, given that the majority of the roster played on the SAL-champion Columbus Catfish last year.

    Also well worth checking out is the Press Journal's mini-profile of V-Rays IF Matt Fields. In the article, Fields lends credence to Morrison's theory about players having a hard time adjusting to the FSL, saying he experienced it himself. He says that he is working on being patient and making that adjustment right now. Fields, who has played in all but two games this year, has exhibited a bit of pop in his bat in the past that he hopes will come out conspicuously in the second half.

    A- Columbus Catfish (26-42)

    CATFISH 7, Rome 6-The Catfish rallied from a 5-1 deficit as they scored six combined in the seventh and eighth innings to beat the Rome Braves on a soggy day at Golden Park. The game's start time was delayed one hour and forty-nine minutes due to rain, and Columbus starter Jeremy Hall never seemed to recover, surrendering five runs in three innings before being pulled. The Catfish clawed back, however, and LF Reid Fronk's three-run eighth inning homer put them ahead for good.

    6/15: Minor League Minute
    AA Montgomery Biscuits (34-35)

    BISCUITS 9, Mobile 7-Montgomery jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first, and extended that lead to 7-0 later on en route to a 9-7 win over the Mobile BayBears. Mobile did briefly claw back in the game, scoring five runs in the sixth to chase LHP James Houser from the ballgame. All but one of those runs were unearned, however, as Houser saw his ERA drop to 2.08. The Biscuits and BayBears each made three errors in a sloppy ballgame, though four Biscuit players had multiple hits and the team had 12 total. RHP Ryan Reid closed out the ballgame for Montgomery, earning his second save of the year and possibly signaling a setup role for RHP Eduardo Morlan when he starts pitching regularly. The first half of Montgomery's season concludes today with a game in Mobile. By winning, the Biscuits can finish with a .500 record.

    BISCUITS 9, Mobile 7
    1B Gabby Martinez 2-5, 2 RS, HR (10), 2 RBI (44)

    AAA Durham Bulls (36-33)

    BULLS 4, Buffalo 3-1B Chris Richard's three-run, fifth inning homer gave the Bulls a lead that they would not relinquish as they took the first of a four game set in Buffalo by a 4-3 final. DH Dan Johnson had three hits and CF Fernando Perez two for the Bulls, but other than Richard's home run, the Bulls had no extra base hits among 11 total. RH Ben Hendrickson had his longest outing as a Bull, giving up three runs in 6.2 innings to pick up the win.

    A+ Vero Beach Devil Rays (32-34)

    FSL West 9, FSL East 3-Several Vero Beach players participated in the latest installment of the Florida State League's annual All-Star Game in Viera, which ended poorly for the Eastern division team they represented. LH Ryan Morse started the game for the Eastern squad and pitched one inning. He was followed later on by RH Heath Rollins, who pitched the fifth inning. Both pitchers gave up an earned run in their stints, while Morse gave up another, unearned run. Cesar Suarez started at shortstop for the East, going hitless in two at bats but driving in a run with a ground out in the fourth. J.T. Hall and Garrett Groce each played the whole game and went hitless in four at bats. Hall was the Designated Hitter, while Groce started in right field and later moved to center. Hall also participated in the Home Run Derby prior to the game and won, besting Brevard County's Taylor Green in the final round.

    V-RAYS Up Next-OFF Today

    A- Columbus Catfish (26-42)

    Rome at CATFISH, PPD-Saturday night's scheduled game between the Catfish and the visiting Rome Braves was postponed due to untenable field conditions brought about by heavy rain. The game will be made up as part of a double-header starting at noon today. Each game will be, in regulation, seven innings long. RHP Jason Ragan will start the first game for Columbus, and last night's scheduled starter, RHP JESSE DARCY, will do the honors for the second game. The two games tomorrow will conclude the first half of the season for the South Atlantic League. The league will take three days off, with the SAL All-Star game occurring on Tuesday. The Catfish will return to action on Thursday, when they host the Charleston RiverDogs for the first of a four game series.

    Double-A Montgomery's Jake McGee left his start Sunday with forearm soreness.
    McGee said he'd "definitely" miss his next start and "probably a couple." The Rays will want to be extra cautious with one of the game's most talented pitching prospects.
    Jeremy Hellickson allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings to win for Single-A Vero Beach on Sunday.
    Hellickson didn't walk anyone, but that's hardly unusual. He's issued a total of five free passes in 14 starts this season. He's also struck out 83 in 76 2/3 innings.

    Hellickson Joins Price on Way to Montgomery
    RHP Jeremy Hellickson was promoted to AA Montgomery after his start this afternoon for Vero Beach. He had an ERA of 2.00 in 14 starts for the Devil Rays, and pitched seven shutout innings today against the Clearwater Threshers before getting the call.
    Good news he got promoted and he did well in A ball. Hopefully he will do well in AA. It the biggest jump from a pitcher in the minors for them.

    Double-A Montgomery's Jake McGee went on the disabled list Tuesday with what's being called a left elbow strain.
    With McGee out, now Jeremy Hellickson will make his Double-A debut during the same week as David Price. Wade Davis is also at Montgomery, so once McGee returns, the Biscuits will have the most talented rotation seen in the minor leagues in a long time.

    Good News, Bad News
    The good? David Price makes his AA debut tonight with Montgomery, while Tim Beckham makes his professional debut in Princeton playing DH. Also, Rays 1B Carlos Pena will be DHing for high class-A Vero Beach and should be activated if all goes well. Also, relief prospect Eduardo Morlan will represent the Rays as a member of the World team in the Futures Game.

    The bad? ProjectProspect is reporting that top LHP prospect Jake McGee will undergo Tommy John surgery. McGee was removed from a start last week with forearm/elbow soreness. Assuming he has the surgery within the next few weeks, it will wipe out the rest of this season(obviously) as well as most of next season. For means of comparison, Phillies RHP prospect Kyle Drabek had TJ last June and won't return to a mound during a game until August this year at the earliest. TJ is no death sentence for a pitcher, particularly one of McGee's age, but he lives and dies by his fastball. If his velocity never returns to the mid-high 90's, I very much doubt how effective he can be.

    Jeremy Hellickson was rocked for five homers and eight runs over 4 2/3 innings Friday in his debut for Double-A Montgomery.
    Hellickson took Jake McGee's spot in Montgomery's rotation after going 7-1 with a 2.00 ERA, 64 H and 83/5 K/BB in 76 2/3 innings for Single-A Vero Beach. It looks like he's in for more of a challenge now.

    A Report on Tim Beckham
    PitchF/x guru Josh Kalk over at THT got a chance to attend Tim Beckham's debut Thursday night and did a write up, which you can find here. What's interesting is that the pitchers are wasting no time working Beckham inside, as Kalk notes:

    It was clear that the game plan was to bust Beckham inside, which makes sense considering his stance. He has the tools to deal with that pitch but I would expect that he will be getting similar treatment until he really squares up that pitch on a consistent basis. Potentially a bigger concern is if pitchers continue to work him in with his leg lift and stride I wonder how equipped he is at getting out of the way. If his stance stays this way I'd expect to see him near the top of the HBP list. Beckham seemed very willing to take a walk in high school so while he did swing at a few marginal pitches early in the count Wednesday I wouldn't be too concerned about that. He showed good speed and hustled down the line even on the two routine grounders he hit.

    Rays prospect Jake McGee is scheduled to undergo Tommy John elbow surgery on July 8 and will miss the remainder of the season.

    McGee was pitching well at Double-A prior to the injury, so at just 21 years old he'll have plenty of development time left even after missing 12-18 months. Still, a big blow to one of the game's better left-handed pitching prospects.

    Fresh off of one of the quicker No. 1 overall pick signings in recent memory, the Rays will continue to build their farm system as well with some big bonuses. Sources indicate that second-round pick Kyle Lobstein will sign with Tampa for $1 million, and that fourth-round selection Ty Morrision, a toolsy outfielder with plus speed and power projection, will also sign for a 'slightly' over-slot bonus.
