    The most impressive Kanapolis Intimidators performances though, were from the pitching staff. John Parke had a terrific start in his only appearance of the week: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K. Kade McClure was solid in a pair of starts: 11.1 IP, 12 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 13 K. Flamethrowing reliever Tyler Johnson (who we will be writing in detail about soon) has been filthy, throwing 3.1 innings of hitless baseball while striking out seven batters. Fellow reliever Jake Elliott put up five scoreless frames, allowing four hits and striking out five with no walks.

    Seby Zavala continues to swing a hot bat for the Barons. The catcher's combined line in the last seven days: .333/.368/.600. He's in a tandem arrangement with Zack Collins, so some of those games were as a DH. Here's a name Sox fans may not have heard in a while - Trey Michalczewski swung a big stick in the last week. His .353/.389/.412 triple-slash is refreshing given his struggles at this level the last two seasons.

    Ian Clarkin made one start and made it count: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K. Lefty Brian Clark made one spot start and one relief appearance, whiffing six batters against zero walks in 4.2 innings. Reliever Brad Goldberg, who was a surprise to be assigned down to AA to open 2018, also struck out six but in just three frames.

    The Knights haven't won many games in the last week, so not surprisingly there aren't a ton of impressive performances. Daniel Palka hit just .240, but with three home runs and a double among his six hits that translates to a .961 OPS. Able to play corner outfield slots and first base, Palka could see Chicago at some point in 2018. Infielder Juan Perez has been handling the bat well too, posting a .273/.360/.500 line in the last seven days.

    Michael Kopech made a single start but was effective, if in a statistically unusual way for him. In a game where he hit triple digits on the gun multiple times, he only struck out three batters in six innings, but posted a whopping 11:0 GO:FO ratio. His brief vacation into ground-baller territory resulted in allowing just a single run in those six frames. Chris Beck was literally unhittable in a spot start - he struck out six, allowing one walk and no hits in three innings.

    The right-handed black Joe Borchard, with less talent...

    It's hard to draft nowadays without seeing great line drive contact hitters...

    I think we have enough low OBP guys on this team. We need to start getting some guys that BB a little. A minor OBP of .311 is ugly!

    It's going to be interesting to see who is the odd man out in our farm OF. Who will be a trade chip, who will be a DH, who will play LF/CF/RF. We need Avisail to get hot again so we could trade him. We don't want to be kicking ourselves for not trading him when his value was sky high. We have 5 high upside players under the age of 21 in Rutherford/Basabe/Robert/Eloy/Adolfo. Wonder if any can learn an infield position?
